【IT168 评论】近日,OpenStack Days China再度来袭中国。在盛典上,我们携手中国乃至亚洲的行业客户,一同向世界宣告:“China Runs on OpenStack!”。 作为OpenStack基金会全球系列活动的重要一站,本届大会在技术方案展示、行业案例分享、社区成员互动、专业培训认证等方面全面升级,为中国的行业客户、OpenStack社区成员和整个开源云生态体系呈现一届干货十足的盛会。 会后,笔者有幸采访到了OpenStack基金会主席、SUSE行业创新,兴行业标准和开源总监Alan Clark和SUSE公司副总裁,亚太区及日本总经理江永清,与两位就最前沿的OpenStack技术和行业实践展开深入探讨。 OpenStack社区持续繁荣需要你的努力 从2010年至今,OpenStack社区从青涩走向成熟。目前,OpenStack社区已经拥有来自185个国家的7万多名社区成员,支持企业多达656家,项目代码超过2000万行,是增长最为迅速的开源项目。更加令人自豪的是,根据OpenStack基金会最新的用户调查显示,71%的OpenStack部署落地企业生产环境。 同时,OpenStack还成为全球电信运营商首选的NFV支撑平台,并在企业新一代IT环境中扮演传统IT和云原生工作负载统一管理者的关键决策。伴随着容器技术的普及,OpenStack与容器技术的融合共赢进程正不断加快。 ▲OpenStack基金会主席、SUSE行业创新,兴行业标准和开源总监 Alan Clark OpenStack基金会主席、SUSE行业创新,兴行业标准和开源总监Alan Clark表示:“我非常高兴能够见证OpenStack在中国的成长和发展。如今,越来越多的企业在做决策时,都会把云端、特别是基于OpenStack开源技术的云计算解决方案作为首要考虑选项,借此来加快业务创新速度,并缩短获取业务价值所需的时间。” Alan Clark举例表示,今天,纺织行业也已经开始针对OpenStack进行业务的转型。纺织行业需要通过云计算的手段来实现世界各地的服装具有一致的质量,这也证明OpenStack对工业4.0的发展起到了很好的推进作用。 谈到如何主持OpenStack基金会的日常工作时,Alan Clark表示:“OpenStack基金会的实质就是一种合作,基金会本着一种透明的原则,希望能够邀请更多的人才和企业参与其中。” 关于OpenStack社区未来增长点的问题上,Alan Clark表示,未来OpenStack社区将会与临近社区针对平台服务、容器以及网络虚拟化等领域进行合作,进一步升级我们的社区结构以及运用新技术的能力。与此同时,未来还将尝试线上交流的模式,让OpenStack社区中的更多新领导力浮出水面,通过新领导力为我们带来新的想法,利用这些新的想法与能力为社区带来更大的增长。 发力云生态,SUSE在开源路上不断完善自我 在OpenStack Days China大会期间,SUSE有两个重要新闻发布,第一个是SUSE携手Supermicro提供融合解决方案;第二个是SUSE加入云图计划,携手浪潮合力发展云计算生态圈。从这两件事不难看出SUSE对于云计算生态的重视,以及在软件定义基础设施领域不断完善自我的决心。 ▲SUSE公司副总裁,亚太区及日本总经理 江永清 SUSE公司副总裁,亚太区及日本总经理江永清表示:“SUSE是一家拥有25年开源技术经验的成熟公司,我们希望可以和我们合作伙伴创造一个良性的生态环境,与合作伙伴在原先技术上更上一层楼,可以为更多客户提供有针对性的解决方案与服务。” 与Supermicro方面,双方已建立全球合作伙伴关系,双方将提供极具创新精神的全新企业级IT解决方案,这些解决方案基于Supermicro硬件,包含SUSE OpenStack Cloud等软件,将OpenStack集成到了可即刻上市的产品当中。这款一体化私有云解决方案基于SUSE YES认证硬件而打造,采用经过验证的参考架构和Supermicro的Green Computing技术,可提供顶级的性能功耗比、性价比以及单位面积性能。 江永清表示,Supermicro的硬件产品与SUSE的OpenStack云和软件定义式存储解决方案有机的结合,在这个过程当中我们的合作伙伴跟客户是多赢的关系,将为双方带来更大价值。 与浪潮方面,SUSE和浪潮此次合作,将通过充分发挥各自拥有的品牌优势、地域优势及技术优势,共同开拓市场,合力创造共赢。 写在最后,笔者看来SUSE凭借20多年的出色工程设计与杰出的服务,持续不断的在探索中谋求创新,以适应不断变化的企业级计算需求和技术应用,在动态的环境中帮助企业提高敏捷性、降低成本和管理复杂度。相信此次SUSE与两家企业的战略合作,能为双方实现互相促进、互利共赢。
