Join Blue Chip Tek at the OpenStack SV Community Event!

By: Dave Unger

Blue Chip Tek, Inc. is a Silicon Valley IT consulting firm focused on helping hyper-growth and hyper-scale companies reach their business goals. A dozen or so of our customers have grown to be billion dollar acquisitions for Google, Microsoft, F5, and others.

We’re incredibly excited to see OpenStack reaching an ever-wider audience, especially here in the Bay Area. We hope everyone who missed the Summit in Atlanta grabs the chance to learn from the sessions at OpenStack Silicon Valley.

On account that we spend most of our time working with companies on the leading edge of innovation in the Silicon Valley, we’ve been lucky to be a part of many major tech changes. We started helping customers design and deploy OpenStack environments when Essex was mainstream and Folsom was bleeding edge. Our value in the OpenStack space is our focus on educating customers through hosted events like onsite trainings, Lunch and Learn events, and One Table, One Conversation Dinner events. We also help customers select the appropriate cloud implementation strategy and provide hands-on services for trouble-free installations. For example, we recently helped a customer go from initial discussions on OpenStack features and functionality to an on-site POC in the matter of two weeks.

If you want some insight into the relative strengths and weaknesses of do-it-yourself OpenStack – built using Red Hat RDO vs. Rackspace Private Cloud, or commercial offerings from Piston, Nebula, Red Hat, Mirantis or Metacloud – come see us at OpenStack Silicon Valley or email us at We would love to help you leverage our experience.

Our experience goes well beyond just OpenStack. We most prefer to start the conversation by talking about what you’re going to do with an OpenStack-powered cloud, so that we can give you advice on what bits and pieces to use. Regardless of whether you’re still trying to learn what OpenStack is, or you’re highly experienced and are just looking for ways to improve what you’ve got, please look us up. We’re more than ready to talk about PaaS, SDN, and SDS options, too.

We look forward to seeing you at the event! Register now!
