Introducing Murano: Bringing Windows Environments to OpenStack

At Mirantis, within our customer and partner base we see growing demand for deploying and running Windows based applications on OpenStack cloud. Today we are pleased to announce the forthcoming Murano project, which is designed to ease this process.  The main goal of this initiative is to create a native OpenStack component that enables fast provisioning and operation of Windows Environments on demand.


  • is native to OpenStack

  • introduces an abstraction level for Windows Environments

  • supports Availability Zones and Disaster Recovery scenarios

  • uses native Windows features for HA solutions

Murano is an open-source initiative headed up by Mirantis. We would appreciate all of your feedback and comments as we head for release.  Please check out these links for more information, source code, and so on.
