This is a guest post written and contributed by Lance Albertson, director of the Oregon State University Open Source Lab. This week, Rackspace Training for OpenStack is teaching an OpenStack Fundamentals course at OSU.
OpenStack is driving true change in academia – it’s powering some of the most sophisticated research projects at top organizations throughout the world. OpenStack has provided researchers a low cost, high performance compute option to handle intense workloads and empowers computer science engineers with a free and open cloud operating system.
OpenStack is incredibly powerful – and we’re taking our Rackspace Training for OpenStack on the road over the next few months to four major universities to give students a hands-on OpenStack experience.
