Open Source Cloud solutions with PlusServer
OpenStack is an open-source platform designed to build public and Private Cloud solutions. Around 3,400 companies around the world are involved in the OpenStack Foundation, ensuring continuous development. Numerous customers worldwide have already opted for open architecture and actively support the open source philosophy.
On request, we are happy to develop an individual OpenStack solution for your needs.
The components of OpenStack
Compute and/or Nova manage groups (clusters) of virtual machines that can be distributed over countless compute nodes. At this operational level, the virtual machines are managed and controlled with various tools. For example, user access to the available resources can be controlled.
OpenStack Object Storage
With Swift, Ceph or similar, redundant and scalable storage clusters can be created. The object storage is scalable to petabytes. In particular, long-term data should be stored and archived here, such as the server images (Glance).
OpenStack Block Storage
A service is set up and centrally managed, which provides storage in the form of blocks, known as Cinders. Physical storage can be attached directly to the Cinder server or to third parties. The latter use a special Cinder plug-in to integrate the external storage. ISCSI can be used to connect the external storage systems to Compute, i.e. to the hypervisors.
This service helps users find, register, and deploy virtual machine images.
The authentication solution for all OpenStack projects can be integrated into existing identity management systems.
Last but not least, OpenStack Network (Neutron). In this project, hardware-based network infrastructure is simulated in software.
A kind of self-service portal that facilitates access to cloud-based resources.
- Perfectly matched components
Through strong partnerships with well-known companies like Dell and Red Hat, we guarantee perfectly matched, seamlessly integrated hardware and software components.
- Scalability architecture
With OpenStack, you can quickly provide multiple virtual instances with scalable resources for your applications. This allows you to react quickly to changing conditions and have a cloud platform that grows with the challenges you are faced with.
- Contractually secured availability
Although OpenStack is a free, open-source platform, our Service Level Agreements provide a contractually secured minimum availability of your cloud infrastructure.
