ONUG Agenda

ONUG Fall will include keynotes and panels designed to provide a diversity of opinions on open infrastructure deployment from IT business leaders. IT architects and designers will take the stage to discuss their motivations for deploying open infrastructure solutions and the business benefits they are receiving from the technology. Industry leaders and early adopters share best practices to consider when contemplating the move to cloud-based software-defined infrastructure.
