OpenStack simplified: OpenStack Training by Sean Roberts and Colin McNamara)

Want to start out with OpenStack? Check out the FREE training guides on the OpenStack foundation site. The guides offer various levels of training ranging from beginner to architect, each guide building on the previous material.

Training available for consumption via:
  • Self paced book
  • Instructor led training
  • Community Instructor led training
One of the most common complaints I hear from potential users, operators and customers is that OpenStack is complicated. Sean and Colin echoed this when they said that there are thousands of features released every 6 months (the development cycle of OpenStack). This training platform will go a long way to helping to demystify OpenStack based cloud computing environments and how to implement and operate them.

Still queasy at the thought of launching an internal project yourself? Find yourself an integrator. At least you'll be able to participate and truly partner with your integrator of choice.
