OpenStack Summit is just over two months away, and NetApp is preparing for its most significant presence yet at the event. This year, we will be focusing on what NetApp has to offer for improving the DevOps application lifecycle, and will cover a variety of topics including:OpenStack Summit

  • Containers: Docker, Flocker, and more
  • DevOps workflows: Continuous Integration and Continuous Development
  • Hands-On-Labs
  • Big Data & Analytics and Internet-of-Things
  • Database-as-a-Service
  • How things work…

In the meantime, the OpenStack team at NetApp would like your help with two things:

  1. If you are an OpenStack user, please fill out the OpenStack User Survey
  2. If you are interested in NetApp technology and OpenStack, please vote for our submissions to speak at the Summit

Complete the OpenStack User Survey

The OpenStack User Survey provides users an opportunity to influence the community and software direction. By sharing information about your configuration and requirements, the OpenStack Foundation User Committee will be able to advocate on your behalf.


According to the OpenStack Foundation, “The survey helps us understand the OpenStack user community and requirements, uncover new use cases, and communicate various types of deployments and technology decisions to developers. Past results have guided the developer community’s priorities for the OpenStack roadmap and community working groups.”


The deadline for the survey is Wednesday, February 24 at 23:59 UTC/ 15:59 PST. You can see the most recent results in the October 2015 report.
