Intel OpenStack Solution Brief


We are in the midst of an explosion in data volumes and computing requirements, and even faster growth is on the way. Analysts estimate there will be as many as 50 billion intelligent machines and sensors connected to the Internet by 2020, increasing global data center traffic by nearly 300 percent. Cloud computing offers a way to accommodate this growth without overwhelming IT budgets. According to Gartner, roughly 50 percent of enterprises expect to have hybrid clouds in production by 2017. By combining an on-premise cloud with public cloud resources, businesses gain the efficiencies of automated IT service delivery, multitenant consolidation, and automated resource orchestration, while maintaining internal control over their sensitive data and applications. Many organizations are using proprietary private cloud solutions to begin their move toward a hybrid cloud. OpenStack software offers an alternative: a modular cloud platform based entirely on open-source software and backed by a broad ecosystem of contributors and vendors. It provides a clear path forward for organizations that prefer the flexibility, choice, and economic models of an open-source solution. This solution brief illustrates the primary advantages of deploying OpenStack, highights a few industry leaders who are already reaping the benefits and discusses Intel's contributions.
