How are companies making money on OpenStack today, and where are the best opportunities for new companies to get engaged and serve the growing user base?

The OpenStack community and commercial ecosystem are not mutually exclusive. To build a successful OpenStack company or product line, you need to invest in the community and to build influence organically. In return, a strong commercial ecosystem means more paid developers and better software, and a competitive market that keeps users seeking OpenStack products.

In his session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, Boris Renski, Co-founder of Mirantis, will analyze the current ecosystem, including the products and services available today and success stories from participating companies. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how to get involved in OpenStack or how to increase their level of involvement for greater returns.

Speaker Bio:
Boris Renski is the Co-Founder & Executive Vice President of Mirantis and is currently a board member at the OpenStack Foundation. He was one of the key influencers to convince all internal Mirantis stakeholders to make the bet on OpenStack services. Today Boris remains as Mirantis' public face in the OpenStack community.

Operationally responsible for Mirantis' marketing strategy, he works to ensure that the marketing dollars the company spends don't just promote Mirantis' brand, but also help further global awareness of the OpenStack community as a whole. To that effect Mirantis is a regular sponsor of OpenStack summits, promotes OpenStack at unaffiliated trade shows such as CloudConnect and OSCON and helps facilitate regional meet-ups in the Bay Area, Washington DC, Russia and Ukraine.
