Seamlessly adopt cloud practices without users knowing the infrastructure changed. This could easily be a marketing tagline for the latest cloud technology, but for users it is an imperative. Users expect uninterrupted service, but admins need to adopt new provisioning paradigms. In this session you'll see how user impact can be minimized during a migration to cloud orchestration.

Discussion will include:
- Service uptime expectations
- Template management in cloud solutions
- Availability management techniques
- Storage management to minimize recovery time

The session will also include a live demo where virtual infrastructure hosted within a XenServer environment is migrated to an OpenStack or CloudStack environment. The tooling extends Packer to create a base representation of the virtual machine, and then migrates the resultant artifact into the desired cloud solution.
