Don’t Miss 22 Standing Ovations at OpenStack Summit Tokyo

By July 24, 2015Uncategorized

**UPDATE** July 31st 2015: Thanks for your support in voting for the below sessions. The voting window is now closed. We will do a followup post about the selected speaker sessions at OpenStack Summit once the results are out.


Every time the OpenStack call for speakers closes there is some coincidental big news in my inbox!original

This time: July 16thGoogle Joins OpenStack (last time it was the State Of The Cloud report showing hybrid cloud as IT nirvana for 82% of Enterprises)

Go figure! July 15th the day prior – some partners in crime and I had just submitted a session proposal on SDN and Infrastructure Interoperability in OpenStack and Kubernetes environments.

Cutting to the chase, it is OpenStack Summit VOTING SEASON. The OpenStack Summit is coming to Tokyo this October! Where better than Tokyo to talk about OpenStack, and surely a lot about how Google and the Kubernetes project is positioning itself shoulder-to-shoulder with OpenStack at the center of the epicenter of Hybrid Cloud platforms…after all there are a lot of Hybrids in Tokyo! 😉 (more than half of new cars sold in Japan are hybrids)

Why else blog during voting season, than to request that you vote up my session so I can Dock on into the Port of Tokyo in style aboard a shipping container. Okay I’m kidding, but just throwing the idea out to the Docker and Kubernetes marketing teams for a cool booth 🙂

This week I have a favor to ask… once again…WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Juniper, our customers, our partners, and the OpenContrail community need your vote for our OpenStack conference session proposals in order to get them accepted.
