Bullet 1

What is OpenStack?

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed and provisioned through APIs with common authentication mechanisms.

A dashboard is also available, giving administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

Beyond standard infrastructure-as-a-service functionality, additional components provide orchestration, fault management and service management amongst other services to ensure high availability of user applications.

Sample Configurations

Think of these as curated playlists of OpenStack configurations. These sample configurations are based on OpenStack case studies and real-world reference architectures across industries and workloads. Each configuration will give you a good idea of which core and optional projects can be used for different environments.
