Orchestrated Containerization with OpenStack

Initial cloud designs were based upon the assumption that hardware emulation via the hypervisor was to be the most significant building block of cloud compute infrastructure. Many of those clouds were built without a workload in mind, and with an “if you build it they will come”mentality. They often failed to show value to the business. With the emergence of containerization, rich orchestration like Kubernetes and container optimized operating systems, rather than bringing workloads to the cloud, we can bring the cloud to the workloads. The benefits of orchestrated container based cloud approaches are manifold – workloadsare portable between clouds, clouds can quickly be built using existing bare metal, legacy virtualization or next generation cloud providers like OpenStack, Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS. Further integration of DevOps via PaaS only serves to enhance the organizational benefit of the non-disruptive hybrid cloud approach.
