VyOS on OpenStack

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of computing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center, all managed and provisioned through APIs with common authentication mechanisms. A dashboard is also available, giving administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. Beyond standard infrastructure-as-a-service functionality, additional components provide orchestration, fault management, and service management amongst other services to ensure the high availability of user applications.

Benefits and use cases:

  • Beginning from 1.2.1 release VyOS became with basic OpenStack support, a raw image comes with cloud-init preconfigured for OpenStack. This should greatly facilitate deployments in private and public clouds backed by OpenStack.
  • OpenStack is the leading open-source option for building public cloud environments. It does not matter whether your company is a multibillion-dollar publicly traded enterprise or a small startup, you can use OpenStack public clouds with services that compete with major public cloud providers.
