Easy to Install & Operate

Our distro features Fuel lifecycle management software for your OpenStack cloud. Developed as a community effort, it provides an intuitive, GUI-driven experience for automated deployment and management of OpenStack, related community projects and plugins. Adapt your environment directly within Fuel with improved lifecycle management, while overseeing your day-to-day operations with StackLight, the logging, monitoring and alerting solution created by Mirantis.

Easy to onboard workloads

Murano is an Application Orchestration and Catalog project, pioneered by Mirantis and developed as a community effort that provides tools to automate application deployment. Using a catalog format, its predefined configuration templates let you simply pick the apps you want to provision – Murano deploys them automatically, ready for use. Murano is now available as a Fuel plugin, delivering features and fixes faster to customers. It includes support for multi-region environments that enable new capabilities for application high availability needs, such as cross region auto-scaling and disaster recovery.

Resilient Web Scale Clouds

Build large resilient clouds based on our enterprise-class testing and hardening of OpenStack packages. Our considerations include high availability, security, hardening, scale testing, updates, upgrades, monitoring, log analysis, performance and interoperability with 3rd party components, such as Ceph. Track the operational health of your cloud with StackLight to get prioritized, actionable insights so you can effectively run your cloud.


Use the APIs to launch server instances, create images, assign metadata to instances and images, create storage containers and objects, and complete other actions in your cloud.

Murano: Applications

Murano enables IT administrators to publish cloud-ready applications in an online catalog. Developers and IT users can use the catalog to deploy these on-demand applications, reliably and consistently, with a click of a button. Applications can be arbitrarily complex: from individual vSphere or KVM-based VMs to multi-node Linux and Windows distributed applications with many dependent applications and services. Accessible via a GUI and an API, Murano also manages the application lifecycle.

Fuel: Deploy and Operate

Developed by the community, Fuel makes it easy to deploy and manage a variety of distributions and third-party plugins, so you won’t be compromised by hard bundling or vendor lock-in. It accelerates the otherwise time-consuming, often complex, and error-prone process of deploying and running various configuration flavors of OpenStack at scale.

Given the wide array of configuration decisions you need to make in any cluster, Fuel helps you get started through a consumer-grade, step-by-step wizard.

Additionally, Fuel offers an intuitive GUI that includes an equipment view of all your nodes, adds contextual advice through the environment definition phases, and provides information quick access links to plugin endpoints. Fuel also provides a set of high-level APIs, that can be used by various applications and services to perform deployment and management of clusters.
