The Challenge

After developing and deploying production clouds, many companies struggle with how to efficiently operate an Open Infrastructure solution. Among the challenges are:

  • OpenStack is a complicated distributed platform that requires high-demand specialized skills that are in short supply.
  • The OpenStack ecosystem has very limited operational tools and GUIs to enable visibility and transparency into OpenStack clouds.
  • Typical OpenStack operational platforms are a hodgepodge of open source and proprietary tools that only provide very basic monitoring and alerts.
  • Existing legacy management platforms are not tailored to OpenStack environments and are prohibitively expensive.
  • Modernization of both development and operational processes involve breaking down departmental barriers as well as training existing resources to meet the demand of the new workflow.

To realize the benefits of cloud, organizations need to transform operations.
