Technical Paper: Getting Started with OpenStack and VMware vSphere

VMware has released a new 20 page technical paper titled, "Getting Started with OpenStack and VMware vSphere."  The guide is designed to showcase the combination of OpenStack, an open and scalable cloud management platform (CMP) for building public and private clouds, with VMware vSphere, an industry leading virtualization platform.

Some believe that a choice must be made to use either VMware products or OpenStack, but this is not the case.  The paper states that VMware compute, networking, and storage technologies bring unique capabilities to OpenStack cloud deployments.

The paper attempts to show how OpenStack can be used as a cloud management platform on top of a vSphere compute and storage infrastructure. And it shows that by using the appropriate drivers, OpenStack can enable self-service consumption of compute and storage in the form of Nova compute instances and Cinder block storage volumes with VMware vSphere as the provider.
