    Mirantis Brings an Open Source Cloud to Enterprise IT Specialists

    As most IT specialists are only well aware, the enterprise IT world is changing at a pace that is almost unprecedented. From security, to mobile to BYOD, IT managers are facing a plethora of new challenges that were not even on the roadmaps of many CIO’s even five years ago. Of all the changes occurring in the enterprise, a very good case could be made that the rapid and widespread adoption of Cloud computing is the biggest change of all. In that regard, we are pleased to introduce Mirantis, which is a leading developer of Cloud solutions based on the open source platform OpenStack.

    Joining us today is Mirantis‘ VP of Marketing David Fishman.

    The Case for Open Source Hardware and Software in the Cloud

    Designing in-house software or leveraging open source communities has enabled cloud providers to do more with less. In fact, the data center has become a software-led infrastructure influencing the cloud storage market at large.

    Let’s face it, data centers are changing thanks primarily to the advent of the cloud data center—led by large cloud service providers like Google, Amazon, Facebook, OVH and Baidu. Many of these providers utilize traditional solutions from the large OEMs, but are increasingly moving to lower-cost, more-optimized open architectures that are driven by software. Designing in-house software or leveraging open source communities has enabled cloud providers to do more with less. In fact, the data center has become a software-led infrastructure influencing the cloud storage market at large.

    Why the change?

    Data centers are the profit engines for cloud service providers. To lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase agility, they increasingly demand:

    • Greater system optimization
    • Smarter technology refreshes
    • Faster innovation
    • Simple implementation
    • Massive scale

    This change is being led by Open Compute Project and OpenStack among others.
