  • 5. Server Virtualization Was the First Step Hypervisors Provide Abstraction Between Apps and Servers HOST 1 HOST 2 HOST 3 HOST 4, ETC.VMs Hypervisor: turns 1 server into many “virtual machines” (VMs) ( W are ESX, Ci ri XEN Server, KVM , Et ) VM t x c. Hardware abstraction Better resource for each server allocation for each server 5
  • 6. Other Building Blocks AreRequired Abstraction Between Apps and Hardware …and any other infrastructure resource in the DC Flexibility & Resource pools for efficiency are the apps starting to key drivers form 6

  • 9. OpenStack, the Cloud OperatingSystemNew Management Layer That Adds Automation & Control 9
  • 10. This is OpenStack• A cloud operating system that turns datacenters into pools of resources – the next evolution from server virtualization• Provides a management layer for controlling, automating, and efficiently allocating these resources• Empowers operators, sys admins and end users via self-service portals (“I want AWS-type service!”)• Gives developers the capability to build cloud-aware applications via APIs 10
  • 11. But It Goes Beyond A SingleDatacenter… Enterprise Private Clouds Run Cloud Operating Systems Public Clouds Run Cloud Operating Systems 11
  • 12. But It Goes Beyond A SingleDatacenter…Imagine Having a Open, Common Platform Across Clouds… Seamlessly transporting workloads This is true Cloud 12
  • 13. An Open, Common Platform is Here Private Public Clouds Clouds Run HighlyRun OpenStack Scalable Software In Cloud Your Own SoftwareCorporate DC Proven byor Colocation Some of the Facility World’s Largest Cloud Providers 13
  • 14. Service Providers Are Adopting• Originated by Rackspace and NASA• Designed to scale cost effectively• Emerging standard backed by large ecosystem• Open source with no lock-in or license• No desire to build proprietary clouds 14
  • 15. This Market Looks ReallyFamiliar 15
  • 16. The Rationale for One OpenPlatform• Both markets need a cloud operating system – significant technology overlap• Cloud orchestration should be commoditized, and we should all solve it together• True interoperability requires a common platform• Customers want to have one standard…ideally one that does not lock them in
  • 17. Companies Using OpenStack Today• Service providers including…. 17
  • 18. Why Did Rackspace Start ThisProject? is the best model for software development• Open source• No other existing solution – public or private – met our needs for building clouds• Customers are demanding a standard• We have a lot of experience to contribute• Support is our business, not technology 18
