  3. 3. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? #1 platform for private clouds #2 open source project of all time OpenStack Momentum 3
  4. 4. What is the value for a VMware environment? Forget the hype
  5. 5. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? This session speaks to VMware environments But OpenStack isnt limited to VMware See recording (March) for KVM. Upcoming talk for Docker Well be using Platform9 for demos Private clouds made easy Several other ways to deploy OpenStack Preamble 5
  6. 6. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? OpenStack Architecture 6 Clarity UI Nova ! ! Cinder Scheduler Keystone (Identity) CLI / Tools Scripts Heat (Orchestration) Neutron Glance (Images) Basic Storage Compute Basic Network Block Storage Network Controller
  7. 7. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Platform9 Managed OpenStack: Your servers host your data Platform9 hosts the OpenStack controller as a Service, with an SLA No need to install, monitor, troubleshoot or upgrade OpenStack Platform9 Managed OpenStack 7
  8. 8. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Resource pooling Automates VM placement Intelligent placement based on resource utilization Automated IP Address Assignment Optionally, self-service provisioning Developers love this! #1 Self Service Automation 8
  9. 9. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Resource Pooling 9 Devops Austin Infra SFO Infra Resource Pool
  10. 10. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Segregate underlying infrastructure for dierent classes of workloads (or users!) By workload, hardware type, geography or organization Illustrations: Test/Dev vs Production Tier 1 vs Tier 2 SSD vs HDD Intelligent Placement 10

  12. 12. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Existing VMware clusters Platform9 beta 2 supports multiple clusters Or, multiple resource pools Or, multiple vCenters! Paired with OpenStack Instantly available for self-service automation Demo 12
  13. 13. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? REST: Simple, familiar pattern Any language - https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/SDKs Vendor Neutral Stable, Versioned Clear separation of concerns Hosts, Storage, Network, Tenants, Users Nova (EC2), Cinder (EBS), Neutron (ELB), Swift (S3), Heat (CloudFormation) Separation of physical vs virtual concepts Simpler, broader, but lacks very ne detail #2 AWS Like REST API 13
  14. 14. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? vSphere Web Services API: https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic= %2Fcom.vmware.wssdk.apiref.doc_50%2Fvim.vm.CongSpec .html OpenStack API: http://docs.platform9.com/#a-idcreate-instanceapost- v2tenant_idservers Observations: OpenStack API dramatically simpler, cuts out a lot of detail Includes key cloud constructs: e.g. Tenant Illustration: Create VM 14
  15. 15. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? REST API calls being made by the UI Demo 15
  16. 16. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? #3 Single Pane Across Platforms 16 VMware vSphere is proven, rock solid But also $$$$ Do all of your workloads today require vSphere? >50% of our customers say no Running 100s or 1000s of servers on KVM, Hyper-V or Docker Should your cloud platform be limited to vSphere? Why not decouple cloud platform from Hypervisor?
  17. 17. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? vSphere vs KVM vs Docker 17 Platform Type Pros Cons VMware vSphere (ESXi) Hypervisor 1. Time tested, stability 2. Familiarity 3. OS / HCL support 4. Operational workows (vMotion) 1. $$$$ (for higher SKUs) compared to KVM / Docker 2. Containers have advantages over VMs Linux KVM Hypervisor 1. Price (can be $0) 2. Supports wide range of OSes 3. Increasingly stable 4. Management: OpenStack 1. Windows guest support not as good as ESXi 2. Operational workows (vMotion) are maturing 3. Management: OpenStack 4. Containers have advantages Docker / Containers Container Runtime 1. Better performance, density 2. No overhead from Guest OSes 3. Developer centric workow 1. OS / App compatibility issues 2. Security / Isolation concerns 3. Performance guarantees unproven 4. Immature management tools

  21. 21. 2015 Platform9 Systems, Inc. Webinar: Why OpenStack for VMware? Fundamental shift towards open APIs Or at least, industry standard APIs (e.g. Amazon S3) OpenStack APIs are now doubly advantaged Open / vendor neutral Broad adoption as the standard Use VMware, but rely on open APIs OpenStack managing vSphere Open-Source vs Proprietary 21
