It's almost impossible to operate a business today without using some cloud services. The cloud doesn't just offer you a reliable place to store your company's data, it also comes with an umbrella of protection that can help you make your business operate better than ever. Here are some of the perks you'll discover if you explore the opportunities that come with an OpenStack deployment:
- Flexibility. When you work with a public cloud, you're generally tied into the provider's preconcieved notion of how you can use it. Fortunately, you can build your own cloud infrastructure and have the flexibility to build the cloud that meets your company needs. OpenStack partners with over 180 companies, creating an ecosystem of solutions that are available to you. Each of these companies offers something a little different, and the wide variety of options ensures that you have the flexibility to make sure your cloud functions exactly the way you want it to.
- Ongoing Development. There are OpenStack contributors and developers all over the globe that work towards making the Open Source project thrive. Because of the many minds that are working on these projects at all times, you have access to constant improvements and ongoing developments.
- Functionality. You will find OpenStack services that fit your computing needs, ways to increase your storage, and user-friendly networking capabilities. Should you need further customization and compatibility with other resources, OpenStack's broad developer community put developer resources at your fingertips.
- Training. OpenStack has tons of training opportunities that can help through all phases of your project -- from initial deployment through continuous ongoing learning. There are classroom educational opportunities going on around the globe all the time, and there are many virtual classrooms that are available to you and your staff. There are always people in the community and options in the Marketplace that can help you get unstuck.
