Chapter 1. Executive SummaryMost options for OpenStack integrated storage solutions aspire to offerscalability, but often lack the features and performance needed for efficient andcost-effective cloud deployment at scale. NetApp platforms integrated withOpenStack avail a unique combination of advanced storage efficiency, integrateddata protection, and non-disruptive operations with the ability to scale whilepreserving performance.With NetApp, organizations can lower risk and enable a broad spectrumof cloud SLAs by combining the power and ingenuity of OpenStack cloudmanagement with proven data integrity and fully-developed storage provisioning,data protection, and efficiency.By leveraging the power of the NetApp clustered Data ONTAP operating system,enterprise organizations and service providers can build a cloud storage platformwith an agile data infrastructure that delivers high-performing, efficient, andscalable open-source cloud services. NetApp provides storage platforms thatenable quick deployment, nimble reaction to change with the ability to scale.With capabilities such as self-healing and integrated data protection for backupand disaster recovery, NetApp solutions are enterprise proven and help reduce riskfor OpenStack cloud deployments. A global network of service provider partnersalready have deployed hundreds of high-SLA cloud services built on NetApp withover a billion users worldwide.Because NetApp technology is integrated with OpenStack Block Storage Service,OpenStack Object Storage Service, OpenStack Image Service and OpenStackCompute Service, users can build on this proven and highly scalable storageplatform to optimize their private and public cloud architectures by reducing riskand increasing efficiency.This document intends to describe the application of NetApp capabilities toenable production OpenStack deployments. In particular, it’s meant to addressthe needs of system architects, system administrators, and storage administratorswho are investigating the use or deployment of OpenStack.1.1.

Chapter 2. OpenStack OverviewThe OpenStack community is a global collaboration of developers and cloudcomputing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computingplatform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver feature-richsolutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement yet massivelyscalable. The technology consists of a series of related projects delivering variouscomponents for a cloud infrastructure solution.OpenStack implements services for establishing infrastructure-as-a-servicereleased under the Apache 2.0 open source license. The project is managedby the OpenStack Foundation, a nonprofit corporate entity established inSeptember 2012 that promotes, protects, and empowers OpenStack software andits community.This technology consists of a series of modular projects that control large poolsof processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center, allmanaged through a single dashboard that gives administrators control whileempowering users to provision resources in a self-service fashion.OpenStack is committed to an open design and development process.The community operates around a six-month, time-based release cycle withfrequent development milestones. For additional information, refer to http://www.openstack.org.OpenStack is available to be deployed on all major Linux platforms. For additionalinformation, refer to http://wiki.openstack.org/GetOpenStack.2.1. OpenStack FoundationThe OpenStack Foundation promotes the development, distribution and adoptionof the OpenStack cloud operating system. The goal of the OpenStack Foundationis to serve developers, users, and the entire ecosystem by providing a set of sharedresources to grow the footprint of public and private OpenStack clouds, enabletechnology vendors targeting the platform and assist developers in producing thebest cloud software in the industry.NetApp joined as a charter member of the OpenStack Foundation in Augustof 2012. The OpenStack Foundation is an independent body providing sharedresources to help achieve its mission by protecting, empowering, and promotingOpenStack software and the community around it. As a Gold member of theFoundation, NetApp is pleased to be taking a leadership role in the community.2.2. OpenStack - A Modular Collection ofCloud ServicesThe various OpenStack community projects and the services they implementare modular in nature and generally capable of being used independently. Theyare intended to knit together into a net capability greater than the sum of theindividual parts.2OpenStack Deployment & Operations Guide 2017 NetApp, Inc. All rights reserved.
Figure 2.1. OpenStack High Level ArchitectureOpenStack Compute (project name: Nova)OpenStack enables enterprises and service providers to offer on-demandcomputing resources, by provisioning and managing large networks of virtualmachines. Compute resources are accessible via APIs for developers buildingcloud applications and through web interfaces for administrators and users. Thecompute architecture is designed to scale horizontally on standard hardware.OpenStack Compute is architected to avoid inherent proprietary hardware orsoftware requirements and the ability to integrate with existing systems and thirdparty technologies. It is designed to manage and automate pools of computeresources and can work with widely available virtualization technologies, as wellas bare metal and high-performance co
