Do Not Accept Defeat

Ready for a dose of reality? Half of all enterprises that tried to implement an OpenStack cloud have failed, and 65 percent of companies report they have found the implementation experience to be difficult. While it can be easy to throw in the towel after experiencing failure, SUSE’s research found the more adversity companies face in their OpenStack attempts, the more determined they will be to make it a success on their next go-around. According to 88 percent of respondents, the majority of business workloads will be deployed as lightweight containers on cloud infrastructures within five years. By quitting, how far will your organization fall behind?


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.
