Background: OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly deployed as an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). The software platform consists of interrelated components that control hardware pools of processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. Users either manage it through a web-based dashboard, through command-line tools, or through a RESTful API.
The demand for innovative virtualization solutions is growing due to the need for simplification and alliance of adaptability to optimize expenditure. Enterprise solutions that support cutting edge technology based allocation and scaling of storage are needed to address the dynamic nature of business need solutions and ultimately result in better ROI. The demand has resulted in the development of robust provisioning functions, allocation and use of compute, storage, as well as network by means of an OpenStack Cloud platform. OpenStack enables enterprises to develop and host flexible offerings with faster provisioning, in public, private, or hybrid cloud platforms.
