OpenStack Update
Infrastructure as a Service
May 23nd 2012
Rob Hirschfeld, Dell
&
• Dell has been a part of OpenStack since inception
• We have had an OpenStack-powered Cloud
solution in market for nearly a year.
• We are seeing substantial field interest with
installed OpenStack clouds in the teens with a
backlog of orders.
• Our solution includes:
– hardware, software, consulting,
– operations best practice (DevOps),
– and ecosystem partners.
What is
Cloud Infrastructure Software (like Amazon Cloud)
• Apache 2 Open source
– Community developed: International, Multi-Vertical
– Dedicated Foundation overseeing governance
• Delivers software, control panels, and APIs required to
securely orchestrate a massive-scale cloud
– Virtual workloads (like “EC2”)
– Object Storage (like “S3”)
– Coming: Block & Networks
• Multiple Integrated Components
?
Use Cases
• Markets
–
–
–
–
Hosting & Telco
Financial
Academic & Government (NASA was a founder)
Web & SaaS
• All Geographies
• Reasons for Adoption
–
–
–
–
License Avoidance (open source)
Scale Architecture (no SANs, no clusters)
Pace of innovation
Market Buzz – expectation of ecosystem
Investment Risk & Return
• Risks
– Fast Development Cycle (drives upgrade treadmill)
– Security (due to lack of maturity)
– Evolving/Missing Components (e.g.: network, block store)
• Safest Path
– Private Cloud with Static Networks
– KVM & Ubuntu getting heaviest developer focus
– Object Store (Swift) is most stable & scalable
• Return on Investment
– License costs (offset by needed expertise)
– Uses “cloud optimized hardware”
– Leverage growing ecosystem (hybrid cloud, tools portability, etc)
Community Health
OpenStack’s community is remarkably vibrant, well funded and
rapidly expanding. It is no longer lead by any single vendor.
• Prominent Adopters
– Private Cloud Solutions (Dell, Nebula, Piston)
– Large public clouds & hosting companies (Rackspace, ATT, NTT,
Dreamhost, HP, Deutsche Telecom)
– Web & SaaS Providers (eBay, Wikimedia, )
– Government (NASA)
– Major Linux Distributions (Ubuntu, Suse, RedHat)
– Hardware Vendors (Dell, HP, IBM, Cisco)
• Substantial Contributors
– Dev: Rackspace, HP, RedHat, Citrix, Nebula, Cisco, Canonical, Piston …
– Ops: Dell has lead here with Opscode. Puppet joining.
