I'm trying to get as much information as I can for Openstack on Nutanix, but it seems to be slim pickings these days!

I see here that Nutanix is an Openstack foundation sponsor:

http://www.nutanix.com/partners/alliances/

And I quote:

"Nutanix provides a single scalable data fabric which integrates with all of the OpenStack services, including a Nutanix Cinder backend for snapshots and volume management, as well as unique integration with Nova which allows for faster provisioning of OpenStack guest instances."

Where is the information on this?

There is one blog that references some info:

http://itbloodpressure.com/2014/04/23/nutanix-openstack/

But it has a link to a 404 page on the Nutanix site for the webinar on it.

There is this marketting video, but it's light on technical details

Are their any whitepapers, documents from PoCs, guides, etc?

Unfortunately the OVM isn't available yet (planned for 4.6), but if you'd like to be a beta tester reach out to your sales rep or myself and we can see what we can do!

The link redirects to here:

http://www.nutanix.com/2013/07/30/webinar-building-openstack-on-a-2u-appliance/

which then gives the error:

It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.

Dear All,

I'm also looking at any resources that can help to deploy / understand how Nutanix integrates with OpenStack. This seems to be too hot topic to be left over.

Any help is appreciated.

I am sorry because of bringing it up again but...
I wanna try installing OpenStack on top of Nutanix cluster.
I find the step-by-step guide quite specific at Nutanix Bible but I cannot find any resources for it.
I mean, I cannot find any OVM (Acropolis OpenStack driver VM) and OpenStack controller VM that will be used for the guide.
May I find them anywhere on Internet or waiting for the resources from Nutanix?

Thanks in advanced

I'm very interested indeed !
I will contact sales to start a trial. This will be a great opportunity for us to demonstrate what Nutanix can bring to the OpenStack world !

Hi aluciani
We are also very much interested to test the upcoming OpenStack integration. We are a Nutanix partner based in Switzerland and have a Nutanix KVM customer (for two years) who is looking at OpenStack.

Thanks

"Nutanix OVM" do you support high availability (HA)?Is it configured in Prism?

New to Nutanix as well and I'd also like to know more about how to make openstack and nutanix (CE) work together.

I was able to get OVM installed, I can talk to horizon, upload images, but I cant make networks. I've dug around in the neutron config, but I cant seem to make heads or tails of what the intent was when it came to networking, either tenant or provider networks.

Can anyone lend a hand?

Make sure you specify a IP pool range as well as a DNS server in the DHCP server options, otherwise you get a "create_subnet_postcommit" failure message.
