Today we are announcing OpenStack support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. This support will be included as part of Premier Support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM at no extra cost.
Existing customers can deploy OpenStack with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM and receive support for the entire software stack. This support includes base operating system which OpenStack installs on, the OpenStack bits, hypervisor and guest operating system with Oracle Linux. This complete end to end support which includes all the components of the stack is a key requirement for enterprise customers and therefore we will be providing it as part of Oracle Linux / Oracle VM Premier Support.
Today we are releasing a technology preview which allows customers and partners to test OpenStack with Oracle VM and Oracle Linux. The technology preview is available here. Together with the tech preview we are providing a Getting Started guide which walks the user through the steps of setting up an OpenStack deployment, the Getting Started guide is available here. The technology preview and Get Started guide give users a simple and easy way to deploy OpenStack and make their first steps exploring the features available with it. The technology preview is also suitable for vendors who would like to integrate with OpenStack from Oracle.
As OpenStack matures and evolves it provides a solution which can meet the growing need for standardization in the IT infrastructure. With the wider adoption of OpenStack customers are looking to leverage it to a broader set of applications including enterprise applications. One of our main goals is to work with the community and help OpenStack take the next step into the enterprise application space, allowing customers to deploy enterprise applications in a reliable, supportable manner.
The press release is available here
To those of you at the Atlanta OpenStack conference we will be happy to discuss this further, we are located at booth D14 and we are looking forward to see you there.
