Mirantis & VMware Reference Architecture

Simplify cloud deployments, via Mirantis OpenStack with VMware vCenter and NSX


Mirantis and VMware have partnered to develop and deliver solutions that help customers accelerate large-scale cloud deployments based on Mirantis OpenStack & VMware virtualization, networking and related technologies. 

By combining Mirantis OpenStack and VMware, you can create self-service scale-out clouds to support modern application workloads that thrive on virtualized infrastructure running on commodity hardware. 

What You're Getting:

This reference architecture provides step-by-step instructions, component software lists, hardware and platform recommendations for deploying and integrating Mirantis OpenStack 6.0 controller node(s) to an existing VMware vCenter 5.5+ datacenter with VMware NSX 4+ software-defined networking (SDN).

The goal is to place VMware compute, storage and networking resources under the control of OpenStack command-line and RESTful APIs.

This provides a powerful, easy-to-use, and well-documented control plane for:

  • Automating your VMware cloud
  • Integrating with popular development toolchains
  • Exploring higher-level OpenStack automation tools like Heat (OpenStack template-based orchestration) and Sahara (elastic Hadoop Big-Data Analysis-as-a-Service)
