Mirantis Publishes VMware Reference Architecture

Mirantis, the pure-play OpenStack company, today released a reference architecture for VMware vCenter Server and VMware NSX, making it easy for enterprises to take advantage of OpenStack in VMware environments.

The reference architecture, now publicly available for download, outlines how Mirantis OpenStack, the leading OpenStack distribution, interoperates with VMware vCenter Server and VMware NSX. Mirantis customers can deploy and control workloads that run on VMware vSphere in their VMware vCenter Server clusters within Mirantis OpenStack. VMware resources are transparent among the compute resources in the OpenStack Horizon console, creating a powerful and streamlined data center solution.

"Mirantis OpenStack is the most robust OpenStack distribution on the market, and is used by some of the top brands in the world, including Symantec, Ericsson, and Expedia," said Boris Renski, Mirantis CMO. "Implementing OpenStack on VMware infrastructure gives customers the agility and scalability of OpenStack, combined with VMware's best of breed components across compute, networking, management and storage."

"Many enterprises are evolving their infrastructure towards a cloud model supported by a software-defined data center approach, and VMware is committed to enabling choice as part of this journey," said Dan Wendlandt, director of product management at VMware. "Collaboration with Mirantis on this reference architecture will provide our mutual customers with greater confidence in deploying Mirantis OpenStack with enterprise-grade VMware infrastructure."

Mirantis OpenStack subscribers are covered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, with Mirantis technical support providing full support for OpenStack components, and helping customers work with their VMware technical support team regarding VMware technologies.
