Do you know which technology your Cloud provider uses for its compute offer? Chances are high it is an OpenStack based solution. The latest OpenStack Summit attracted over 4500 attendees and the foundation gets new supporters every day, showing a clear will and potential to become as big as Amazon AWS or VMware.
OpenStack promises users an open source, scalable, portable and free or low cost way to deploy private and public clouds with the same agility as many of the leading public cloud providers.
So you probably made the right choice if you are using it for your private or public Cloud. But are you satisfied with how you have to deal with your platforms? Most Cloud providers offer the basic Horizon management dashboard and that is almost the same as doing everything through a command screen.
Horizon is a very basic panel that provides a web browser accessible interface. It allows users and administrators of the environment to interact with and manage the various functional components of their Cloud infrastructure. But it does so only in a fairly limited way. Often, SysAdmins are still stuck typing lines and lines of code and repeating the same actions over and over. So you and your companies lose valuable time and money. Not to mention the difficulties you face deploying a scalable stack or planning automated tasks.
But no need to despair! Today, ECmanaged, the award-winning SaaS Cloud management platform, announced the integration of its solution with OpenStack® technology. Now any Amazon AWS, Digital Ocean, Linode, Rackspace, Eucalyptus, Cloudwatt , HP Cloud client and users with private Cloud based on OpenStack can manage their Cloud infrastructure through our single user-friendly dashboard.
