Cloud computing requires that a computing platform exist “out there” in the cloud, on which these remote apps can run. A number of cloud platforms are available from different vendors, including Amazon, Azure, Oracle, IBM, and Google, among others.
OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a public or private cloud platform, managed through a dashboard or via the OpenStack API. OpenStack works with popular enterprise and open source technologies making it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure.
The OpenStack Action Pack allows you to build visual workflows that include OpenStack Compute services such as checking server status, creating servers, deleting servers, creating snapshots and more.
- Ease the efforts of developers, application engineers, and system administrators to create, deploy, and run applications by automatically provision or deprovision OpenStack environments or servers as part of deployment workflows or pre-approved, self-help runbooks.
- Ship code and environment/server as one coherent deployable package that can be automatically promoted to or matured into production.
- Standardize an OpenStack best practice for application deployments and avoid expensive cloud sprawl.
