OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.
The OpenStack cloud operating system enables enterprises and service providers to offer on-demand computing resources, by provisioning and managing large networks of virtual machines. Compute resources are accessible via APIs for developers building cloud applications and via web interfaces for administrators and users. The compute architecture is designed to scale horizontally on standard hardware, enabling the cloud economics companies have come to expect.
mCloud OpenStack+ leverages open source software to enable complete and easy deployments of OpenStack. Deploy and control resources via our API or the mCloud Dashboard.
We do not stop there though; mCloud’s integrates best-of-breed open source building blocks, including OpenStack. We enhance OpenStack with built in billing and VM monitoring. OpenStack Powers Demanding Production Workloads Worldwide. To learn more about OpenStack, click here.
OpenStack Summit: Panel on Application Portability
It's a multi-cloud world and your code needs to run somewhere. However, the cloud you choose today may not be the cloud you need tomorrow. Changes in reliability, performance, cost, and privacy may drive you to research alternative public clouds, a private cloud, or a hybrid of the two. Considering application portability upfront can be crucial in avoiding lock-in. The tools you use to interact with the cloud will play a large part in how portable your application is between clouds.This panel will discuss the different approaches to application portability, e.g. API compatibility, multi-cloud SDKs, image portability, application architecture portability, etc. Is application portability a myth or reality? What are the pros and cons? Watch the video to find the answers to your questions.
