VMware prepares openstack for enterprise use

VMware wants to bring enterprise-class reliability to OpenStack by releasing a distribution of cloud hosting software that runs on top of the virtualization stack. "
There's a lot of interest as OpenStack to provide a developer-friendly cloud. But enterprises are really struggling to do anything real in terms of building a production cloud that they can stand behind," said John Gilmartin, of OpenStack. Gilmartin is VMware's vice president and general manager for the company's software-defined data center business unit. The distribution, VMware Integrated OpenStack, is available as a preview for select customers and should be available for full release in the first half of 2015. "Today, standing up OpenStack requires a lot of customer development and integration work. It takes a lot of time and is expensive to do. We address a lot of challenges with OpenStack by providing an out-of-the-box solution that runs on top of VMware components."
