OpenStack provides a great Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platfrom for deployment of applciations in virtual machines and containers. For telcos specifically, OpenStack unifies the point of presence (PoP), central office, and datacenter infrastructure. However, many telcos need OpenStack deployed in many datacenters around the region or country. The question is how should they deploy OpenStack for multi-site needs?
Should they consider stretched deployment where different components sit in different locations? Or should they consider replicating the entire OpenStack environment in each location? What impact does this have for Keystone, messaging, disaster recovery, and more importantly, unified management of all these sites?
This presentation will discuss architectural and deployment options for multi-site deployments of OpenStack.
