Unreliable

OpenStack isn't reliable enough for the enterprise.

False: Many household names have made strategic investments in OpenStack projects to build pillars based on the technology at the core of their IT infrastructure. "OpenStack is now a mature cloud operating system," declares Matt Haines, vice president of cloud engineering and operations for Time Warner Cable. "In the right hands, it can be used to build and support an enterprise-grade private cloud." PayPal's Vice President of Cloud and Platforms, Jigar Desai, adds, "PayPal has more than 1,500 applications on its site, and all need to work in harmony. Today we run all of our production front and mid-tier workloads on OpenStack."

Lured by the siren song of better business agility and accelerated innovation, an increasing number of companies are considering or have already deployed private clouds as part of their IT strategy. Since emerging in 2010 as an open-source initiative to help organizations build cloud services on industry-standard hardware, OpenStack has garnered much attention, but its adoption in production environments has been tempered by an assortment of perceived limitations, both real and imagined.

In this slideshow, ZeroStack has identified some of the most common preconceptions about OpenStack and explores whether they have a foundation of factual merit or can be debunked.
