Live webcast Proprietary cloud threatens lock-in, higher cost and application silos. There is an alternative: OpenStack is the open source cloud operating system. Backers claim that it’s the disruptive technology that the cloud needs. but is it ready to deploy, and do you have the skills?

Don’t panic: the Reg is here to explain. Our next Regcast, live on June 28 at 11:00 BST, features Colin I’Anson of HP and Dale Vile of Freeform Dynamics, who will explain why OpenStack changes what vendors offer and what the rest of us will build.

Reg reader research tells us you’re worried about lock-in, suspicious of vendors, and reluctant to commit to cloud until you’re sure about which horse to back. Give us an hour of your time, and we’ll explain how open source answers these problems. You won't want to miss it: register here.
