Over the past year I’ve been using a home lab for quick, hands-on testing of OpenStack and Rackspace Private Cloud, and a number of people have requested information on the setup. Throughout the next few blog posts I will explain what I’ve got. This serves two purposes: 1) documentation of my own setup as well as 2) hopefully providing information that other people find useful – and not everything is about OpenStack.
The Rackspace Training for OpenStack team had so much fun visiting major colleges and universities last year and giving students hands-on experience with OpenStack, that we’re back at it again in 2014.
What to know what goes into running an OpenStack powered private cloud? Well, you’re in luck. Last week, we hosted “Behind the Curtain: Operating an OpenStack Powered Private Cloud,” a webinar during which we dug into the components that allow Rackspace to offer and operate Rackspace Private Cloud Software in an as-a-Service model.
EDITOR’S NOTE: OpenStack Orchestration (Heat) is currently available as a technology preview feature  and is unsupported with the Rackspace Private Cloud.
Thinking about deploying and running an OpenStack powered private cloud? Do you plan on operating at scale and need to know what’s involved? We’ve got you covered!
Yesterday was day two of the ZeroVM Design Summit. Day one mostly focused on the architecture and capabilities of ZeroVM itself; while day two examined integration with other technologies, particularly OpenStack Swift (the technology behind Rackspace Cloud Files).
EDITOR’S NOTE: Ken Hui will be joining John Griffith, OpenStack Program Technical Lead for the Cinder Project and Solutions Architect at SolidFire for a webinar Tuesday, April 29 at 11:00 a.m. CDT to talk about OpenStack Block Storage Design Considerations including an interactive panel discussion at the end. Please join John and I by registering at: https://t.co/CRSEOkM5sD.

This year, linux.conf.au was held on the beautiful University of Western Australia campus, in Perth.
Last month, we launched an early access program for the latest version of Rackspace Private Cloud powered by the Havana release of OpenStack. The response has been great and we have incorporated your feedback into our Unlimited Availability launch, which is available today for free and supportable by our talented team of experts.
