GUTS: Simplifying the Move to OpenStack

In this presentation, Bharat will show you how to simplify the migration process with a workload migration engine, making the move to OpenStack easy. This talk will address the various difficulties operators and administrators face when migrating workloads and resources between various cloud platforms, including removing time consuming, repetitive and complicated steps.

This tool can be applied to many cloud migrations, including between Virtual Machines and OpenStack, between Public and Private clouds, as well as between OpenStack and OpenStack. This tool integrates completely with other OpenStack projects minimising deployment and maintenance efforts. So whether you’re looking to upgrade from your existing traditional virtualisation platform, setup a new OpenStack instance, or upgrade to a newer version of OpenStack, we will show you how to simplify this process using GUTS.


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn how to migrate existing resources to an OpenStack cloud environment from other clouds using a reliable and automated method. Attendees will also learn an alternative approach to moving resources from older OpenStack clouds to more recent versions.

Topics covered during this presentation and demonstration will include:

  • Architecture and design
  • Other cloud to OpenStack migration scenarios
  • OpenStack to OpenStack migration scenarios
  • Demo showing single and multi instance migrations from VMware to OpenStack
  • CLI and GUI demos
