  • OpenStack Pro/Cons

    innfinision.netOpenStack vs VMware vCloud

  • The advantage of OpenStack by our experiences at innfinision:

    The most successful Open Source project after Linux kernel

    Support from many OEMs and OS vendors

    Interoperability with many components, just pick your

    favorite one and plug it in

    Standard and well accepted APIs

    innfinision.netOpenStack vs VMware vCloud

  • The disadvantage of OpenStack by our experiences at innfinision:

    Very complex to setup and troubleshoot

    Although common code base, might differ from implementations

    Need high numbers of management nodes

    High skills required to run the cluster

    innfinision.netOpenStack vs VMware vCloud

  • VMware vCloud Pro/Cons

    innfinision.netOpenStack vs VMware vCloud

  • The advantage of VMware vCloud by our experiences at innfinision and

    our customers advises:

    Feature rich (vSphere HA, vMotion, DRS, I/O control)

    Very large ecosystems

    All os vendors make it supported and certified under ESXi

    ESXi can be downloaded and used freely

    innfinision.netOpenStack vs VMware vCloud

  • The disadvantage of VMware vCloud by our experiences at innfinision and

    our customers advises:

    Per core license - expensive

    Proprietary platform

    ESXi can not be APIs accessed - need to buy licenses

    Most of applications are based on Windows
