Everyone is excited about OpenStack these days, and while there s plenty of flavors of OpenStack for your datacenter, there is limited data for making decisions on the technology stack that runs OpenStack. Furthermore, OpenStack consists of many projects (e.g., Nova, Cinder, Neutron, Marconi, Trove, Ironic) with pluggable backends, which are powered by many different vendors.
With so much choice out there, you need the right information to evaluate each vendor's tools for performance and ability to handle cloud scale workloads.
In this session, you'll learn about the Rally + OSProfiler tool, which helps you compare vendors and their drivers in action in OpenStack deployments. You'll see how to get multiple data points like benchmarking graphs, code profiling graphs/data, bottlenecks across multiple OpenStack services--all of which can help you compare each vendor for your needs.
Rally + OSProfiler also helps driver vendors to improve their performance by digging into the same benchmarking and profiling data, which will improve the driver quality starting from the code development phases to the production and post-production phase.
If you're trying to evaluate OpenStack vendors and performance, this session is for you.
