In today’s fast-growing IT infrastructure, organizations are supposed to bring new services to the market just to keep up their pace with the increasing cloud adoption. Businesses need greater agility and scalability to bring new applications and services to the market faster for achieving remarkable growth. The developers are striving hard to have greater platform availability and resource provisioning along with multiple environments to test, develop, and deploy a new application.
Hence, to meet those challenges, your IT Infrastructure needs some evolutions to become more efficient, agile, and scalable. OpenStack helps to grow your digital business by enhancing your bottom line and infrastructure.
OpenStack is an open-source cloud platform built on open industry standards and APIs that offers agile and scalable infrastructure. It is a set of software modules used to develop and manage computing platforms for public and private clouds.
It empowers standard cloud computing services like compute, network, and storage resource provisioning along with self-service automation that allows administrators and end-users to concentrate more on strategic activities. It also enables users to provide resources through its management dashboard and OpenStack API. By getting such public cloud capabilities to the data centers, OpenStack can independently scale to grow with your demands.
Being an open-source platform, it is highly adaptable and avoids vendor lock-ins. Data and applications are built, tested, and stored in the cloud environment under the reliable security mechanism provided by OpenStack. Besides Infrastructure as a service facility, OpenStack has some core components to manage services such as dashboarding, orchestration, bare-metal provisioning, messaging, containers, and governance. Following figure1 shows the assembly of OpenStack resources.

The creation of OpenStack components is fabricated by open-source developers’ community. These components provide APIs to access infrastructure resources for further development and deployment by cloud users. OpenStack components are classified under two groups, Core and Under Development. Currently, there are seven core components and two components under development as shown in figure 2.

These components are described below:
This entire OpenStackOpenStack cloud Infrastructure can be deployed in four ways as follows
OpenStack has been one of the cloud service providers which is connected to Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain to manage and monitor their resources for compute, networking, storage, billing, migration, orchestration, and many more.
There are several live use cases such as big data projects, SaaS delivery, large container deployments, and web hosting which are managed seamlessly by OpenStack and further by its integration with Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain. OpenStack is a freely available open-source platform with no provincial cost and vendor lock-ins, hence can be easily adopted by organizations to build their own open scalable and agile cloud infrastructure.
Businesses and organizations are moving their workload to the cloud for better agility, performance, and security. Cloud computing is the bellwether of hosting applications and databases to improve the overall efficiency of business processes. The disparity between the on-premise workload and cloud environment workload often results in businesses migrating the workload to the cloud. Cloud technology shows impeccable growth contributing to the adoption of cloud-based computing across many businesses and organizations.
Centaurus, a next-generation cloud for the telecom sector, is an open-source project for building cloud infrastructure platform that can be used to build and manage public or private clouds, edge computing, and edge device datacenter. It is a solution to address key challenges of large-scale clouds such as system scalability, resource efficiency, multi-tenancy, edge computing, and the native support for the fast-growing modern workloads such as containers and serverless functions. Centaurus helps in creating multiple nodes, managing infrastructure, containerizing the environment, managing the pods, and many more.
Cloud computing is picking up the pace replacing the traditional methods of storing the data, accessing, and running the applications. Cloud migration is the process to shift the existing data, applications, and other business elements from data centers or one cloud to other cloud environments for better scaling. Organizations are shifting their businesses on cloud for more speed and agility. Migration to cloud gives the organization limitless computing resources.
Click2Cloud support enterprises throughout their cloud infrastructure deployment process and empowers them with private cloud offerings, a cloud framework for compute, storage, and network services. To get the benefit of hybrid cloud and Edge computing an enterprise can accelerate the use of OpenStack, Apsara Stack, and Azure Stack services to transform technologies into cloud and deep industry growth to deliver abiding value.
This blog will give you a complete understanding on billing, budget, and cloud cost optimization. Cloud cost management is as important as knowing your bills. It is important to know your cloud spends and which cloud offers you a good service at minimal costs. Click2Cloud also offers you a semi-automated assessment platform “ CloudsIntel” to support you with assessment and migration plan
