The OpenStack Ops Mid-Cycle Meetup will provide a chance to continue conversations and dive into working groups initiatied at the first Ops Meetup in March 2014, and followed by the Ops Meetup tracks during the Atlanta Summit May 2014. It is intended to be a forum for people who are currently running OpenStack clouds to congregate, swap best practices, share ideas and give feedback. The format will primarily consist of round table / working groups / discussion sessions, with only a small number of presentations. The event has the following goals:

  1. Gather feedback on the issues that come up in running OpenStack and work to communicate this throughout the community
  2. Create a forum in which to share best practices and architectures between interested parties
  3. Increase constructive, proactive involvement from those running clouds
