How Kubernetes Saved OpenStack

Long live OpenStack — on Kubernetes!

How Kubernetes Saved OpenStack

VMware had shown that organizations wanted more efficient ways to utilize hardware. Both VMware and AWS enabled self-service and rapid provisioning of virtual machines.

A properly running OpenStack cloud could provide resources solidly enough for entire telecommunications systems to run on it; in fact, an entire branch of networking, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), evolved to replace single-purpose hardware such as firewalls and load balancers with virtual machines, managed by OpenStack more often than not.

This white paper will discuss how Kubernetes has made it possible for organizations to more confidently continue using OpenStack.

Included in this white paper:

  • Properly running OpenStack cloud
  • Containers VS virtual machines
  • Kubernetes's solve save OpenStack
