Examine Which OpenStack Deployment Works for You

Because of the complex nature of many projects, users are increasingly turning to managed services and OpenStack distributions to find success in do-it-yourself deployment. More businesses are turning to open source options to deploy private clouds, as this offers a more secure approach to implementing a commercial distribution, with sturdy and stable enterprise-class solutions that meet business needs. Enterprise vendors often test new versions and updates to guarantee compatibility and ensure third-party hardware and software continue to perform flawlessly throughout the entire lifecycle. Refer to this booklet from the members of the OpenStack community – technologists, business leaders and product managers – for a thorough explanation about getting started and planning your path to an OpenStack cloud.

Clearly there have been concerns within enterprises about how their cloud infrastructure should be integrated and managed. SUSE sponsored a study that found more than 81 percent of senior IT professionals are planning to move or are already moving to OpenStack private cloud. Those who have yet to move have expressed concerns about implementation, vendor lock-in constraints and a shortage of OpenStack talent in the market. So what can IT do to make their companies less reluctant to pursue the private cloud?

Pete Chadwick, senior product manager, Cloud Infrastructure, SUSE, shares some best practices on leading the way to a production-ready OpenStack cloud solution.
