OpenStack Cloud Training Courses

As powerful as OpenStack software is, we know first hand it takes a lot more than software to properly design, deploy and operate a cloud at scale. Rackspace offers the most extensive OpenStack training curriculum in the industry covering topics ranging from an introduction to OpenStack to Neutron networking.
