USA: AMD announced a new collaboration with Canonical that provides one of the industry’s easiest ways to deploy an OpenStack private cloud.
The solution features the SeaMicro SM15000 server, Ubuntu LTS 14.04 and OpenStack, which includes a set of powerful tools to build one of the most flexible and reliable private clouds.
The AMD and Canonical collaboration overcomes the complexity of deploying OpenStack technology and provides an out of the box experience making it possible to deploy a private cloud in hours compared to days.
The joint solution automates complex configuration tasks, simplifies management, and provides a graphical user interface to dynamically deploy new services on demand.
The SeaMicro SM15000 server and Ubuntu LTS 14.04 and OpenStack solution is one the most scalable solutions in the industry, as demonstrated in setting the industry benchmark record for hyperscale cloud computing. The record of 168,000 virtual machines was achieved using MAAS (Metal as a Service) and Juju, both part of Ubuntu LTS 14.04 and OpenStack.
MAAS was used to deliver the bare metal servers, storage and networking, and Juju was used for deployment. The solution is available today and is the most scalable, automated application for deploying Ubuntu LTS 14.04 and OpenStack in hyperscale environments.
