How to architect OpenStack for enterprise reality
With OpenStack becoming more and more popular as a cloud-building technology for enterprises, companies are asking themselves several important questions.
- How viable is OpenStack as an enterprise platform?
- Is it possible (and feasible) to integrate it with existing virtualisation infrastructure, e.g. vSphere from VMware?
- Is there a business case for such integration, and what are the risks and challenges associated with it?
- How do they best utilise OpenStack: is the “vanilla” architecture always the best approach, or is there a case for swapping out certain components for third-party tools?
In this FREE whitepaper, Gigaom analyst Paul Miller looks at these questions and more in this report sponsored by Canonical.
