Openstack is an open source cloud platform. It controls a large amount of networking and storage resources throughout a datacenter, which is managed by a control panel that gives administrators control while allowing their users to deliver resources through a web interface. It customizes the platform for business needs. The flexible design of Openstack helps to integrate third-party technologies, so there is no need to rip-and-replace the current. Openstack service is used to build private and public clouds. Openstack has three main components such as compute, networking and storage. Compute manages and provides large networks of virtual machines. Networking consists of API-driven network, pluggable, scalable, and IP management, and storage comprises object and block storage for use with servers and applications. Companies across the globe are building and developing tools for Openstack services. Numerous companies such as Nebula, Dell, IBM, Morphlabs, and MetaCloud are offering integrated software and hardware solutions to install Openstack private clouds. There are several service companies that bring Openstack proficiency into the frame such as SwiftStack, B1 Systems, Mirantis, and CloudTP. Rackspace and Mirantis also offer Openstack training courses for cloud administrators.
The factors that are driving the global Openstack service market are that it boosts scalability and resource utilization as Openstack private clouds offer a significant degree of scalability. For instance, if one department encounters a surge in demand for computing resources, IT resources may be temporarily redirected from other departments to the one that currently needs it the most. It cuts down time to market as faster deployment of IT resources also means end-users and business units no longer have to wait days or weeks to start using the network services and applications they need. In turn, they would be more capable of rolling out and completing projects earlier than before. Factor that restrain the growth of the Openstack service market is that it might take longer time to implement and the rising security issues related to the technology (which is still in the emerging stage) makes it prone to breach and access by hackers. Openstack service providers and developers are constantly working on providing security patches along with solutions and services to enhance the security of the solution.
