Working as DBAs in the enterprise often means distributing limited resources that are in high demand. In our testing environments at SAS Institute, we deploy multiple versions of Hadoop to test various distributions. To manage this, we choose to virtualize deployments using OpenStack and Savanna. While setting up our systems, we faced challenges with networking, OS configuration, storage layout, hardware choices, and more. Two DBAs, both new to OpenStack, share what they wish they had known before starting.

This presentation will benefit an audience interested in new ways the cloud can improve a daily work flow, namely in database fields. The talk is intended for beginners, who will leave confident that they too can effectively use OpenStack in their projects.
