Cloud orchestration stacks are an important component in completing the move to a private cloud. In this rapid fire session, speakers representing key cloud orchestration stacks will have 10 minutes each to present their responses to key questions about the functions, features and capabilities of each cloud stack. Questions include: services and capabilities offered; languages, operating systems, APIs and image formats supported; virtualization stacks supported; management tools; portability; hardware, capacity, performance and availability constraints, pricing and more. Presentations will be followed by an open Q and A discussion.

This presentation covers the OpenStack cloud stack.

    No notes for slide
  • What cloud services does the stack offer?(i.e. virtual machines, code execution, large-object storage, message queueing.)
  • What operating systems, languages, or APIs can the user employ?(i.e. Python, any OS, etc.)
  • On what stack is it based?(VMWare, Xen, KVM, etc.)
  • What are the underlying hardware requirements or constraints? (i.e. pairs of machines; Intel quad-core processors; sub-10-ms latency between nodes)
  • Is the stack portable to other stacks, or to public cloud provider environments?(i.e. can you move an AMI to Amazon?_
  • What standards or de-facto standards does it support?
  • How is it priced?(i.e. by core, by user, open source with a support contract, etc.)
  • What management tools do you offer?(a screenshot or two is fine here)
  • What are the capacity, performance, and availability constraints?(i.e. scales to a maximum of 20 nodes)
  • Can it work in a distributed, multi-city mode with additional redundancy?
  • One summary slide to highlight key technical differentiators – Please do not make this a sales pitch!

  • 7. What standards or de-facto standardsdoes it support?• OpenStack API – Open API built by the community. Technical meritocracy determines how it is constructed and how it should be implemented.• EC2 API via euca2ools – Mandatory for some business models, offered as an elective service for maximum coverage. • http://wiki.openstack.org/Nova/APIFeatureComparison• Open SDKs – Community support around OpenStack and EC2 API RACKSPACE® HOSTING | WWW.RACKSPACE.COM
