Overview:

VMware Integrated OpenStack enables IT administrators to deploy and manage a production grade OpenStack quickly and easily on top of their VMware infrastructure.

VMware Integrated OpenStack is a VMwaresupported OpenStack distribution (distro) that makes it easier for IT to run a production-grade OpenStack-based deployment on top of their existing VMware infrastructure. Building on their existing expertise, VMware administrators can foster innovation and agility by providing their developers with simple vendor-neutral OpenStack APIs on top of VMware’s best-of-breed Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) infrastructure. Key administration capabilities, including install, upgrade, troubleshooting, and cost-visibility are provided via deep integration with already familiar VMware management tools, enabling fast time to innovation and lower total cost of ownership.

Powerful Management Features

Reliable Production Grade OpenStack

Deliver OpenStack on VMware’s best of breed SDDC infrastructure components including the most trusted hypervisor (VMware vSphere), breakthrough network virtualization platform (VMware NSX) and the industry leader in hyper-converged storage (VMware Virtual SAN).

Benefits

  • Enterprise Grade OpenStack Cloud
  • No OpenStack PhD Required!
  • Simplified OpenStack Operations
  • Single Vendor Support
  • Free for all VMware vSphere® Enterprise Plus customers, including vSphere with Operations Management™ Enterprise Plus and vCloud Suite® customers

Advantages of Running OpenStack on VMware

vSphere for Compute (NOVA)

  • The industry’s most robust and production proven hypervisor.
  • Rich, differentiated features, including vSphere vMotion®, High Availability (HA), Fault Tolerance, Distributed Resource Scheduler™ (DRS), resource protections, and low-latency
  • Low OpEx provided by advanced management and operational features.

NSX for Networking (Neutron)

  • Programmatic provisioning of network and security services can result in greater agility and visibility for your network and security infrastructure in addition to simplified operation and lower CapEx.
  • Advanced security and multi-tenancy (Micro-Segmentation).
  • Advanced virtualized network services with massive scale and throughput (routing, security groups, QoS).
  • Integration with third-party network services such as load balancers and firewalls (e.g., Arista, F5, and more).

Virtual SAN/vSphere Data Store for Storage (Cinder/Glance)

  • Works with any vSphere validated storage.
  • Leverage commodity hypervisor-converged storage nodes to provide low-cost shared storage with VMware Virtual SAN™.
  • Use advanced Storage Policies (SPBM) for optimal placement of workloads and efficient utilization of storage.

Features:

VMware Integrated OpenStack is a full OpenStack distribution that enables IT administrators to foster developer innovation by deploying and managing production grade OpenStack quickly and easily on top of their VMware infrastructure.

Foster Innovation and agility for application development teams

  • Open, Vendor Neutral OpenStack APIs: Whether you are transitioning to a DevOps-centric agile product development methodology or building cloud native applications, foster innovation and agility by providing developers with OpenStack APIs on top of VMware's best-of-breed SDDC infrastructure.
  • Complete support for core OpenStack services: Nova, Neutron, Cinder, Glance, Horizon, Keystone and Heat.

Streamlined Deployment and Upgrade

  • vSphere Web Client Based Deployment: VMware Integrated OpenStack is a downloaded virtual appliance that is deployed using the vSphere Web Client. The vSphere Web Client then deploys all the VMs and components needed to create a highly available, production grade OpenStack infrastructure in a few simple steps.
  • Patching and Upgrade: VMware Integrated OpenStack includes a patching mechanism that allows administrators to easily perform patching and upgrades with minimum disruption to the OpenStack infrastructure.
  • Leverage the Complete VMware Ecosystem: VMware Integrated OpenStack can be deployed on any vSphere supported hardware. VMware Integrated OpenStack leverages any storage solutions supported by vSphere through vSphere datastores to implement Cinder and Glance, the OpenStack block and image storage services.
  • Available for all vSphere Enterprise Plus Customers: VMware Integrated OpenStack is available for free with all editions of vCloud Suite, vSphere with Operations Management Enterprise Plus and vSphere Enterprise Plus. Optional VMware Integrated OpenStack support can be purchased separately.

Optimized for the Software Defined Data Center

  • vSphere: VMware Integrated OpenStack leverages enterprise grade vSphere features such as Dynamic Resource Scheduling (DRS) and Storage DRS, through Nova – the OpenStack compute service, to achieve optimal VM density. Features such as HA and vMotion are used to protect tenant workloads against failures.
  • NSX: VMware NSX provides a highly scalable network virtualization solution with rich features such as private networks, floating IPs, logical routing and security groups that can be consumed through Neutron – the OpenStack networking service.f
  • Virtual SAN: Virtual SAN uses server disks and flash to create radically simple, high performance, resilient shared storage for your virtual machines using x86 serves. The scale-out architecture drastically lowers your overall storage TCO while enabling administrators to specify storage attributes such as capacity, performance, and availability in the form of simple policies on a per-VM basis. Virtual SAN features are provided through Cinder and Glance, the OpenStack block and image storage services.

Integrated Operation and Management

  • Simplified Configuration and Operation: Pre-defined workflows automate common OpenStack operations such as adding/removing capacity, configuration changes, patching and upgrading.
  • Integrated Monitoring and Troubleshooting Tools: Out-of-the-box vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Log Insight integrations provide faster and easier monitoring and troubleshooting of your OpenStack infrastructure.
