VMTurbo Hosts vBrownBag Panel at OpenStack Summit

Panel Session Featured Industry Thought-Leaders From Rackspace, Wikibon and VMTurbo

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2015) - VMTurbo, the only demand-driven control platform for the software-defined data center, hosted a vBrownBag panel session at the OpenStack Summit on Wednesday, May 20. The panel featured John Engates, CTO at Rackspace, Stu Miniman, Analyst at Wikibon and co-host of theCUBE, and Endre Sara, VP of Advanced Solutions at VMTurbo. Moderated by Eric Wright, Principal Solutions Engineer at VMTurbo, the panel discussion covered trends in OpenStack, particularly Enterprise adoption.

"OpenStack has been a great way to show and demonstrate that our enterprise is modern, our enterprise is agile, our enterprise is capable of doing cool new stuff with the big boys out there," said John Engates, CTO of Rackspace. "It's a necessary thing nowadays."

"The whole role of infrastructure is to deliver your applications. What I don't want is to be spending so much time turning the geek knobs and optimizing this bespoke silo," said Stu Miniman, Analyst at Wikibon. "You want your superheroes to be able to work on the new business deployment that can make you new money, get new applications, leverage new data, do things, not just keep things up and running."

The vBrownBag panel session followed the results from the recent OpenStack survey, which found that 46% of interested respondents plan to deploy the solution within the next 12 months. Now in its 11th release, OpenStack Kilo strengthens the private cloud offering with more enterprise-friendly features and an increase in contributions from community and corporate developers across the globe.

"Enterprises are recognizing the value of OpenStack as an enabling platform," said Eric Wright, Principal Solutions Engineer at VMTurbo. "The proof points are becoming clear as we see the velocity of OpenStack adoption across every vertical - and while Walmart, PayPal and Comcast may have seemed like outliers at first, the platform has made major inroads in large financial services firms, health care providers and many more."

VMTurbo recently announced the launch of its latest release of Operations Manager, further extending demand-driven control to Quality of Service (QoS) adherence across every layer of the stack, including OpenStack. VMTurbo also announced that Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions, has made a strategic investment in the company.
