Architecting OpenStack for enterprise reality
With OpenStack becoming more and more popular as a cloud-building technology for enterprises, companies are asking themselves several important questions. How viable is OpenStack as an enterprise platform? Is it possible (and feasible) to integrate it with existing virtualisation infrastructure, e.g. vSphere from VMware? Is there a business case for such integration, and what are the risks and challenges associated with it? Finally, how do they best utilise OpenStack: is the “vanilla” architecture always the best approach, or is there a case for swapping out certain components for third-party tools?

Gigaom analyst Paul Miller looks at these questions and more in this report sponsored by Canonical. For a more in-depth look at integrating vSphere and OpenStack, you may also want to read this whitepaper.
