OpenStack continues to create a lot of buzz in the industry. Deployments are increasing as the technology improves with each release and as our customers get a better handle on the kinds of business challenges an OpenStack cloud can address. In a recent article, Jeremiah Dooley, Cloud Architect at SolidFire presents four ways that OpenStack is improving enterprise IT including controlling shadow IT, better use of existing hardware, and efficiencies gained by the standardization of cloud management and deployment.
Once the infrastructure is deployed, getting applications quickly to the cloud using a standard and repeatable process can further improve operational efficiency. We’ve developed a new guide – Build, Deploy and Maintain MongoDB on OpenStack-based SUSE Cloud – that will take you step by step through the deployment of an OpenStack private cloud, and a MongoDB instance on that cloud, using SUSE Cloud, SUSE Studio, and SUSE Manager. MongoDB is the leading NoSQL database and when combined with OpenStack, provides an excellent solution for database as a service implementations being deployed by many enterprises. This guide will take you through 1) the deployment of SUSE Manager for provisioning, configuring and maintaining your environment, 2) the deployment of SUSE Cloud OpenStack, 3) building the MongoDB application image in SUSE Studio, and 4) deploying the MongoDB application image directly from SUSE Studio to SUSE Cloud.
While this guide provides detailed instructions for deploying MongoDB on OpenStack, it also serves as a template for deploying and maintaining other applications in a SUSE Cloud OpenStack environment. No other company has the breadth of technology and world class enterprise support to get you as quickly and safely from the data center to the cloud. Check out this new SUSE guide today!
