ODS Video: Making Large-scale Data Centre Deployment Easy With MAAS

Why has cloud computing been so successful? Arguably, it’s the 70s-style pay-as-you-go model of computing that allows companies a low-cost way to build a cloud from zero. More importantly, it’s how the cloud solves the problem of quick machine deployment in fast-paced business environments – provisioning a new PC in minutes.

But what if you could unlock the potential in your bare metal and manage it just like you can in the cloud, allowing you to define CPU and RAM requirements as well as location and access credentials? With MAAS you can.

In this, the latest of our OpenStack Summit keynotes, hear from Christian Reis, VP Hyperscale and Storage how MAAS is unlocking the potential in bare metal.

Join our Ubuntu OpenStack Fundamentals Training Course to learn about working with MaaS, Juju and Landscape, our industry-leading cloud toolset. Created by Canonical’s Engineering team, the course is a classroom-based combination of lectures and lab work. Learn more about the program here, and don’t forget to register for our upcoming dates in Amsterdam, Chicago, and Washington DC.
