8:00-8:30 Q/A & Networking


A majority of workloads in today's data centers are like pets. Their lifespan is in years, and they run mission-critical services that must be up 24x7. Learn how Platform9 HA, along with Project Masakari, using Consul brings High Availability (HA) to OpenStack Instances.

In dev and test environments, instances are created and forgotten. Learn how Project Mors helps by providing leases to instances and deleting them after a predefined timeframe.

Platform9 recently open-sourced Project Mors and VM HA as part of the OpenStack Big Tent initiative.
