BMW has set high standards for innovation and efficiency in the datacenter. We had rolled out optimized automation and virtualization environments by 2011 that were best in class in the auto industry. We saw the opportunity that cloud provided and initially rolled out our own implementation. We then saw the power of a community-supported environment like OpenStack in 2014, and in the space of one year we have deployed a self-service private cloud environment with 350 cores and 40TB of storage.

In this session, we will talk about the strategies employed to roll out the OpenStack-based service and the experiences with 4 departments who have deployed some of their applications. We’ll talk about some of the things we did to make it easy for the developers (like a Jenkins continuous-build environment), and the challenges that still lie ahead especially with on-boarding of legacy applications. Attendees may also benefit from our experience with managing user expectations and training them appropriately for a self-service environment.
