The road to OpenStack at UK largest Academic private cloud system: University of Edinburgh

This presentation aims to talk about the UK’s largest academic private cloud in production: University of Edinburgh’s OpenStack system.

The biggest challenge we faced was to be able to provide the University’s researchers with a more flexible self-served computing services. The OpenStack-based private cloud solution proposed by Sardina Systems was operational within 8 weeks from commencement of design process.

In the presentation we plan to cover the following for our audience: - the predefined constrains that came from the university's side - the solution we have proposed to the university, compasing all 3 phases of OpenStack: deploy, operate and upgrade - the benefits of getting an OpenStack-based private cloud system in the academic sector
