Why learn OpenStack?

OpenStack, a cloud operating system, controls large pools of computing, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard. OpenStack is free and open-source, but if you are going for a vendor-specific version, it might cost you. This revolutionary platform addresses the need of organizations to have flexible and automated resource provisioning and orchestration devices. OpenStack aims to promote open source cloud platforms which are believed to be the future of Cloud Computing.

As the market share for OpenStack keeps increasing (expected to reach 5.38 billion U.S dollars by 2020) and because of the huge benefits it offers businesses, the demand for OpenStack qualified engineers and developers is hitting the roof. OpenStack provides an attractive solution for end-users who seek to build an inexpensive cloud and for system vendors looking to transition to a services model. OpenStack is well supported in the industry, and has also grown dramatically in scope.

The primary computing engine, the Nova for OpenStack is used to deploy and manage large numbers of virtual machines and other instances and handles computing tasks. It also makes sure that each of the components of an OpenStack deployment can communicate with one another quickly and efficiently.
