The talk will reveal why the University of Edinburgh decided to implement an OpenStack-based private cloud system, what are the benefits to adopt a self-served computing environment and how was possible to allow the University to flexibly scale up to 200+ hypervisor servers.

This presentation aims to talk about the UK’s largest academic private cloud production: University of Edinburgh’s OpenStack system.

The biggest challenge we faced was to be able to provide the University’s researchers with more flexible self-served computing services. The OpenStack-based private cloud solution proposed by Sardina Systems was operational within 8 weeks from commencement of design process!

In the presentation we plan to cover the following for our audience: - the predefined constrains that came from the university’s side - the solution we have proposed to the university, compasing all 3 phases of OpenStack: deploy, operate and upgrade - the benefits of getting an OpenStack-based private cloud system in the academic sector.

University of Edinburgh is one of the leading universities in the UK, ranked 19th in the world, 6th in Europe and 4th in the UK, and has decided to implement an OpenStack based private cloud system for their research services.
