Your guide through the wilderness of Open Cloud
Containers are not the only technology out there -- and they never will be.
While the bleed of apps to infrastructure was inevitable, the move to cloud native architecture makes automation essential. The infrastructure is very much a part of the application.
Read the Q&A from a webinar by Mirantis and Cloudify about how you can use available open source tools to create a single management environment for PNFs, VNFs, and mobile edge cloud applications.
View the Q&A from our live demo of adding a Kubernetes minion with Mirantis Cloud Platform.
With edge, we have closed vendor solutions and open reference architectures, but nothing for VNF and software vendors to build on top of. Changing that is the first step towards virtualized edge.
Generic VNF "certification" programs sound great and are terrific for marketing. Unfortunately they don't add value for customers.
We've added improvements to all three tiers of MCP, the DriveTrain CD layer, the cloud platform itself, which includes Kubernetes and OpenStack Pike, and the StackLight monitoring layer.
Ensuring that development and deployment are handled properly can be a challenge at best, and a nightmare at worst. You can hope things will work out, but hope is not a strategy.
It wasn't that long ago that OpenStack was the hot new kid on the infrastructure block. That just might change with the latest release of OpenStack, code-named Queens.
