Cloud computing is transforming telecom service provider networks and OpenStack is the open source Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution for building and managing cloud infrastructure. This course provides a conceptual understanding of the benefits, capabilities, architecture as well as the high-level operation of the OpenStack. We explain the functionality provided by each of the key services such as Keystone, Nova, Glance, Neutron, Cinder, and Swift as well as Heat orchestration. Finally, we will discuss OpenStack orchestration and telemetry services and how it integrates with NFV and SDN.

This course is designed for professionals in the industry who need to develop a high-level understanding of OpenStack.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Define the role of OpenStack as a cloud infrastructure manager
• Identify key services of OpenStack and describe their role
• Step through the operation of OpenStack services in managing cloud resources
