OpenStack for the Enterprise – Showcasing the OpenStack Ecosystem
As well as an IaaS focus we will also look at the role of OpenStack in PaaS goals
Sep. 26, 2013 09:00 AM
We are now working on the next chapter for our white paper Enterprise Cloud Computing, which is entitled OpenStack for the Enterprise.
As the name suggests the goal is to provide a succinct but comprehensive overview of one of the technology platforms available to CIOs to implement their Enterprise Cloud strategy: OpenStack.
Enterprise and Big Data Cloud Computing
For example Ubuntu 13.04 delivers OpenStack with high availability, scalable storage and big data deployment capabilities. Similarly Nati Shalom of Gigapaces describes “Big Data On OpenStack”.
Dell is offering Crowbar.
Nati Shalom makes a critical point about their product, that it makes SaaS-enablement possible without code changes, a critical point for both ISVs as well as Enterprise Architects, for the same reasons of scalability of important enterprise apps, streamlined delivery and user billing and reporting.
PaaS and DevOps
In this blog Nati Shalom describes AWS OpsWorks, as part of explaining PaaS and DevOps. Canonical offers “JuJu”: This can enable “Micro clouds”, where developers create local Cloud services and then automate their delivery to production environments, via JuJu acting as an orchestration engine.
This prompts reviews of relevant open standards, for example TOSCA.
Enterprise Cloud Brokerage
Relevant technologies and initiatives here include CompatibleOne, an open source initiative to leverage the OCCI open standard for Cloud Service Brokerage, which can fit with OpenStack and enable deployment and monitoring of real-time complex n-tier application workloads provisioned across multiple Clouds, among other CSB features.
Editorial note: the post OpenStack for the Enterprise – Showcasing the OpenStack Ecosystem appeared first on Cloud Computing Best Practices.
