OpenStack & Beyond Podcast – Episode 6 | OpenStack Predictions for 2016

Coming (almost) straight off the heels of our OpenStack Tokyo podcast, we bring you a fresh OpenStack & Beyond podcast all about the future of OpenStack, specifically in the next year. Our panel of three included experts each in a different discipline: an analyst, a product person, and a systems architect.
This podcast started with some talk about the main shifts that took place in OpenStack in 2015. Very quickly, the conversation moved into OpenStack distributions versus hosted OpenStack to telecom adoption, containers, and hybrid cloud predictions.

Enjoy the episode below and meet our super group of panelists:
