OpenStack Summit Barcelona – your essential guide to the show

Containers, controversy, products and partnerships, lots to expect from OpenStack in Barcelona.

By James Nunns

Six months after OpenStack headed home to Austin in Texas for its conference, the open source community is now about to land in Barcelona.

Approximately 6,000 attendees from 50+ countries expect to attend the Summit in order to discuss the challenges and the benefits of the open source cloud platform.

Taking place between the 25th-28th October the event will feature numerous speakers and various hot topics.

At the Austin Summit there was talk of making OpenStack the standard for private cloud, focus on virtual machines and containers, and claims that the Big Tent would collapse.

CBR lists the big topics expected to be discussed at the Barcelona Summit.



Typically a boat load of products and services are released during conferences so it is a pretty safe bet that this will also happen in Barcelona.

OpenStack recently released the 14th version of its software.

OpenStack recently released the 14th version of its software.

OpenStack recently released the 14th version of its open source software, Newton, so there is unlikely to be any big releases like that.

However, with a massive ecosystem of partners in attendance such as; IBM, HPE, Rackspace, Canonical, Red Hat, Dell EMC, Intel, and many more, there will likely be various new products and services revealed during the show.

Improvements to scale and performance, container based enhancements, the integration of new services, have all been released in previous shows so keep an eye out for that.

I would expect to see some announcements made around Kubernetes and work being done around telcos.
