Rackspace Readies OpenStack Training for Private Clouds

The OpenStack platform is evolving pretty rapidly, but there’s plenty left to do – like training. Companies looking to deploy OpenStack may have a hard time finding in-house talent or hiring folks with experience. To help pave the way for OpenStack growth, and to make a few bucks in the process, Rackspace has announced a global training program to get admins and developers up to speed. The OpenStack software training is five days and runs $3,000 per student. (For comparison, Red Hat’s one-day Cloud Architecture class runs about $1,600 per student.) The classes will be offered in Austin, Boston, London, and San Antonio in 2011. On-site classes for companies are also available, though pricing was not announced for the custom classes.
