Migrating from VMware to Openstack

This paper explores migrating to an open source cloud computing platform – OpenStack – and comparing it with vRealize – the proprietary virtualisation platform from VMware. Moreover, this paper provides an analysis of and organisation with a medium-sized estate of VMs and physical machines, detailing how migrating from VMware to OpenStack can result in up to 92% cost savings.

Included as an example in this comparison is Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack which delivers economic and efficiency benefits by leveraging Juju for application modelling – together with Canonical engineering team’s expertise – to ease the pain of deployment, migration, operations management and support.
