Competitive advantages of business agility drives the need for responsive and flexible IT infrastructure; which can be slow and expensive. The lead time to procure, install, configure, and commission new HW can take weeks. Cloud Computing IaaS brings speed, agility, scalability, and availability with lower CapEx and OpEx. This hands-on workshop is conducted in a Production Communication Service Provider context and the role OpenStack plays in NFV and SDN networks. Hands-on operational exercises are provided with detailed explanations of OpenStack’s component implementation, along with basic troubleshooting. Participants become Tenants and create multi-tiered network topologies and web service applications, enabling the participant to more adeptly deploy and support Cloud applications in an IaaS environment.

A hands-on in-depth technical training to personnel involved in design, engineering, and operations and monitoring telecom networks.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
■ OpenStack’s role in NFV and SDN networks
■ Identify the benefits and applications of IaaS and OpenStack
■ Diagram OpenStack’s logical and physical architectures
■ Provision, manage, and monitor resource pools in a Cloud Computing Center
■ Create simple virtual network over OpenStack IaaS
■ Explore OpenStack features such Snapshot, etc.
■ Contrast the benefits and considerations of cloud deployments
■ Cloud partitioning over physical host deployments
