This week the team was attending the OpenStack Summit in Austin, and I wanted to pull together some Nutanix + OpenStack blogs that were published this month. If you are interested in getting started with Nutanix and OpenStack, this selection of blog posts will help get you on the fast track.
One easy way to get started with Nutanix is to download our Community Edition. Community Edition is a 100% software solution in which you can now experience the same Nutanix technology that powers the data centers of thousands of leading enterprises around the world.
We introduced AHV drivers for OpenStack in the recently released AOS 4.6 to build further out on our Enterprise cloud strategy. A key pillar of our vision is to provide choice to customers when deciding how to build a cloud to meet their business SLAs.
Chris Brown, Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, put together this cool video showing how Nutanix quickly integrates with your choice of OpenStack controller and provides complete automation with Nova, Cinder, Glance, and Neutron drivers.
It’s time to look at the steps required to launch virtual machine (VM) instances and setup appropriate storage. The first steps to take are to provide the necessary network access rules for the VM’s if they don’t already exist.
This post will cover the retrieval of base or cloud OS images via the Openstack Glance image service and how the Acropolis driver interacts with Glance and maintains the image data on the Nutanix Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF).
In this post I intend to talk about setting up a Network Topology using the Openstack dashboard and the Neutron service integration with Nutanix. I will be able to show how this gets reflected in the Acropolis Prism GUI.
There has been a lot of discussions lately around vRealize Automation (vRA) and AHV, formerly known as Acropolis Hypervisor, integrations and if it possible to manage AHV based virtual machines (VMs) via vRA.
