Imagine a data centre. Hundreds of physical machines, racked, powered and connected to each other. One tool turns this data center into a cloud and enables on-demand resource provisioning through a self-service portal. That’s OpenStack!
“OpenStack ensures maximum multi-cloud cost optimization”
OpenStack is a fully functional cloud platform as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This means that OpenStack basically resembles the behaviour of public clouds. Users can request compute, network and storage resources on-demand through a self-service portal. Although they are provided in the form of virtual machines, virtual network and virtual disks, exactly as in the traditional virtualization management platforms, they are defined through the APIs. For businesses, the ability to define virtualized resources programmatically enables fast-paced infrastructure automation and cloud-style operations.
