Software Driven Migration: VMware to OpenStack

Many organizations are looking to modernize their data centers and migrate from technologies like VMware to OpenStack. Although historically, VMware has been a dominant virtualization platform, trusted by many organizations for running mission-critical applications, the rapidly evolving technology landscape has already delivered the next generation of virtualization technologies. OpenStack and Kubernetes are setting the stage for edge computing and Hybrid & Multi-Cloud to emerge as industry standards.

Migrating from VMware to OpenStack offers compelling benefits:

  1. Cost Savings: OpenStack significantly reduces licensing fees.

  2. Vendor Independence: Avoid vendor lock-in and make choices based on how they favor your business.

  3. Innovation and Collaboration: Open-source fosters rapid advancements.

  4. Scalability and Elasticity: Automatically scale resources on demand

  5. Multi-Cloud Support: Manage multiple clouds and data centers from one interface.

  6. Integration with Open Source: Seamlessly integrate with Kubernetes and other open-source tools.

  7. Community Support: Active community provides resources and expertise

By embracing OpenStack, you gain cost savings, flexibility, scalability, and a vibrant community, empowering your cloud infrastructure.

Migrating VMs from VMware to OpenStack has traditionally been a people-intensive and complex process requiring an "expert-intensive" investment.

Organizations must engage in detailed planning, consult experts, and consider utilizing tools and technologies to facilitate smooth migrations. Because each migration scenario is unique, it has been difficult to come up with best `practices and/or automation.
