There’s still a strong demand for OpenStack – that was made clear to Deutsche Telekom's experts at the fourth Deutsche OpenStack Tage conference (DOST) during numerous discussions with visitors to the trade fair. Deutsche Telekom sponsored the industry gathering and presented its public cloud offering, the Open Telekom Cloud. More than 300 international IT professionals took part in the fourth edition of the DOST, which was held in Berlin this year.
Open interfaces that simplify infrastructure management were among the topics that prompted lively discussions, as were the various deployment methods for setting up and operating OpenStack. One dominant issue was container solutions such as Kubernetes, the installation and operation of which was also featured during the well-attended panel discussions. There was great interest in Starling X, the Edge computing and IoT cloud platform that is optimized for high-performance, low-latency applications and that was recently launched as a pilot project with support from the OpenStack Foundation.
