VMware: OpenStack Summit 2016 Re-Cap – An Introduction to OpenStack for VMware Administrators
So, you’re a VMware administrator providing IT resources to developers who want API-driven access to your compute, network, and storage infrastructure. If that’s the case, you should definitely check out the VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO) product homepage, the VIO Hands-on Lab, or go ahead and download and install VIO yourself.
But you might first want to view VMware Senior Technical Marketing Manager, Trevor Roberts Jr.’s talk at the 2016 OpenStack Summit.
