What is OpenStack?

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

Learn more about OpenStack's compute, storage, networking, take a tour of the dashboard, or dive in and learn how to get started with OpenStack today.

Based on five generations of production software, this seed code will be the base for future fully open source implementations that can be productized. In addition to standard cloud functionality, the project components provide fault management and service management amongst others 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.
