'Opening Keynote | Open Cloud – Place Your Bets!'
Cloud has made its mark, reaching into every corner of enterprise and service provider data centers, and now the conversation has shifted to the "open cloud." OpenStack shook the market in 2010 when it became the first Apache-licensed cloud platform with broad commercial support, and soon existing cloud technologies were pushed to follow a similar path. It's now clear the cloud will be driven by open source technologies, but businesses are still trying to understand which technologies are the best fit for their needs.

How do you separate hype from reality and openness from open-washing in the cloud market? What unique factors should you consider when evaluating open source technologies versus proprietary software? In this 11th Cloud Expo Opening Keynote hear Jonathan Bryce, who has spent his career building the cloud and is now Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, make sense of the open cloud landscape so you can feel confident making the best decision for long-term success.

Speaker Bio:Jonathan Bryce, who has spent his career building the cloud, is Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation. Previously he was a founder of The Rackspace Cloud. He started his career working as a web developer for Rackspace, and during his tenure, he and co-worker Todd Morey had a vision to build a sophisticated web hosting environment where users and businesses alike could turn to design, develop and deploy their ideal web site – all without being responsible for procuring the technology, installing it or making sure it is built to be always available. This vision became The Rackspace Cloud. Since then he has been a major driver of OpenStack, the open source cloud software initiative.
