Open source software to create and control Public and Privade Clouds

OpenStack was designed to control large computer pools, storage and network resources of a data center, managed by a Dashboard or by and OpenStack API.

Currently hundreds of large global brands run their daily business in OpenStack platforms, reducing costs and gaining agility.

Over two hundred companies, world leaders in their technology segments such as CISCO, HP, EMC, JUNIPER, Oracle, VMware, AT&T, CITRIX, NetApp and others are integrating their products to OpenStack standards. Initiatives such as these strengthen the whole community showing that OpenStack will integrate to the most important technologies developed for Datacenter in the market.

The project began in 2010 through the efforts of NASA and Rackspace, in September 2012 a group called OpenStack Foundation was created as a nonprofit organization aimed at the adoption and continuous improvement of the project.

OpenStack Structure

OpenStack is an open source initiative under the terms of the Apache license, so is free. The technology consists of a series of related projects which control a computer set ( CPU , Memory, Storage, Networking Resources, among others), available to users of a data center to be applied to services.

Each user manages his own resources through a web based "dashboard". Nevertheless, it is also possible to interact with the environment through other ways, such as RESTful API.

The project consists of five segments that relate to each other, which are OpenStack Compute , OpenStack Storage, OpenStack Networking, OpenStack Dashboard and Shared Services.

 

 

 

OpenStack Compute

Allows enterprises and service providers to offer on-demand computing resources, by provisioning and managing virtual machines.

The computing architecture is designed for horizontal scaling of resources and and developed to support standard hardware X86_64, leveraging economy to the whole Cloud ecosystem. Such economy is the main reason for companies to participate in the IaaS.

The project as a whole was designed to be flexible, because without this attribute it could not adapt to the constant changes in Cloud environments. Specific requirements such as hardware and proprietary software are not part of the project.

OpenStack Compute was designed to manage "Pools" of computing resources and can work with widely known and available technologies for virtualization environments.

OpenStack Storage

Provides different forms of storage, with better performance and lower installation costs.

OpenStack has as its base two important projects: Swift (Object Storage) and Glance (Block Storage), both of which can be used in various types of cases and constantly adheres to the needs of modern enterprises seeking other forms for storage of its contents.
The
Object Storage is ideal for low-cost storage, scale-out. It can be developed fully distributed manner and access can be made by APIs available that can be integrated quickly by developers to existing tools such as applications and/or backup processes, data archiving among others.
The
Block Storage allows disk volumes to be created and to be connected to virtual machines available made available by OpenStack Compute.
The integration of OpenStack Storage and the storage silos currently available in the market is a fact and should be used. Such is the case of NetApp, EMCNexenta and SolidFire.

OpenStack Shared Services

Several of the OpenStack components are, in fact, available to its pilars: Compute, Storage, Networking and Dashboard.

 

 

OpenStack Dashboard

The OpenStack Dashboard provides administrators and users a precise graphical interface for resource customization and administration, image maintenance and network operation among many others.

Its intuitive and flexible design helps presenting all components, making it easier to make the connection between all the OpenStack universe.

The OpenStack Dashboard is just one of the many ways to connect to OpenStack. The RESTful API, native to any platform, suggests everyone to leave for their own development.

 


 

the future has changed...
