The OpenStack Foundation has been following the correct way during all these years, but what follows is an international leap. Some international companies adopting OpenStack are helping with that. For example, eBay website runs on an OpenStack private cloud platform. Four years ago, eBay’s website was operated fully on its on-premises datacenter infrastructure. “Today, 95% of eBay marketplace traffic is powered by our OpenStack cloud” said Suneet Nandwani, Sr. Director, Cloud Engineering at eBay Inc.
But this international leap won’t happen without some challenges. One of OpenStack main problems is its steep learning curve, you must first achieve a successfully installation and once done, when you think you have done it, things could get ugly. There’s no definite strategy to operate an OpenStack deployment, but with the right tools and the right information on a timely manner, this could be done without pain.
That’s our commitment at Sentinel.la: “Reduce the operational pain of Cloud Administrator/SysOp Teams providing quick, concise and relevant information to solve the problems related to a real OpenStack deployment”.
The other point of inflection to achieve a succesfully international leap are containers and projects such as Murano and Magnum “People are really excited to see how frameworks like Docker and Kubernetes enable companies to bring containers in and make use of them with the networking and security frameworks that they already have,” said Jonathan Bryce, OpenStack Foundation Executive Director.
