OpenStack Autumn 2016 meetup



OpenStack Finland User Group had it’s autumn meetup on November 2nd 2016. The topic for this event was OpenStack Operations and Operators.

I had also promised to talk about our operations at Cybercom, and specifically in our Managed Operations Center running our 24/7 operations, even though I have been mostly concentrating lately on other tasks at my daily work. Toni, who was supposed to keep the talk originally, was on parental leave, so I promised to help there.

Naturally the slides were made in a very lean way during my train ride to Helsinki… But they ended up being pretty good.


In addition to the main sponsor and organizer Cybercom, the event was sponsored by RedHat, NetApp, Fujitsu and SUSE.

The evening was held at night club Maxine locate in Kamppi center in Helsinki. The evening was hosted and moderated by Ilkka Tengvall, as usual.
