The Meetup, held in Tokyo March 7-8, is a chance for operators to share best practices and war stories.

If you run an OpenStack cloud, attending the next Ops Meetup is a great way to swap best practices and share war stories.

This time around, it’ll be held over two days, March 7-8, in Tokyo at the Granpark Conference in the Shinagawa neighborhood.

You still have time to influence the sessions – so check out the Etherpad, where you’ll also find hotel info. The two days will be broken into tracks — general, NFV and enterprise — and suggestions so far include Cinder design for NFV, OpenStack SDKs, LTS releases and OpenStack on containers.

Tickets, limited to 150 participants, cost $USD20. (Previous editions focused on providing input for upcoming releases, however with the addition of the Forum, ops folks are invited to collaborate with OpenStack upstream developers to share feedback and shape upcoming releases at the Summit.)

Got questions? Reach out to the OpenStack Ops mailing list or get involved in the planning by participating in the weekly planning meetings on IRC, which take place on Tuesdays at 1400 UTC.  If you need a visa to travel to Japan or have other travel-related questions, head over to the logistics Wiki.
