Rackspace Training For OpenStack Heading To Four Major Universities

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.

The four-night training sessions will teach students how to properly design, deploy and operate a cloud at scale using OpenStack, the open source cloud software that we co-founded.

The goal is to immerse students in an OpenStack environment so they can evaluate it, use it and sharpen their OpenStack acumen. Students will walk away from the training course with the experience and knowledge to install, run and operate OpenStack-powered clouds.

Here’s a lineup of our upcoming university seminars:

  • Virginia Tech; September 30 through October 3
  • University of the Incarnate Word; October 28 through October 31
  • University of Texas at Austin; November 4 through November 7
  • Oregon State University; November 11 through November 14

Classes run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. local time.

To get an idea of what you can learn, check out the Rackspace Training for OpenStack training that we conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) earlier this year:
