VMware Integrated OpenStack 2.5 adds incremental improvements

Nick Chase, OpenStack:Unlocked - June 13, 2016 - |

VMware_Workstation_version_8.0_icon3VMware Integrated OpenStack 2.5 is out, with, a handful of improvements that seem to be targeted mostly at current VMware users.  These improvements include the ability to directly import VM templates as Glance images — a task that was already possible, but extremely labor and resource intensive, as well as the option to use VIO with vSphere Standard with NSX, as opposed to requiring vSphere Enterprise Plus.

The new upgrade also includes networking improvements, such as Neutron L2 networking support, which makes it possible to programmatically connect VLANs to physical and logical networks, as well as enabling flexible workload placement and workload mobility.

The new release also signals a greater emphasis on NFV workloads, claiming “features such as per-tenant capacity subscription, fine-grained instance performance tuning and SR-IOV,” enabling guaranteed capacity.  The company also added F5, Silver Peak, and VeloCloud to its VMware NFV Ready program, for a total of 9 solutions from 8 members.
