Mirantis OpenStack 7.0 Focuses on Scalability and Resilience

A newly released Mirantis OpenStack 7.0 distribution focuses on enhanced scalability, resilience, and support in mission-critical enterprise environments.

“Early OpenStack releases were all about more features fast, as it was important to gain minimum feature parity to VMware, Microsoft and other cloud solution providers,” said Boris Renski, Mirantis CMO and co-founder. “Today the feature parity gap is largely closed with enterprises such as  AT&T, Symantec, Walmart and many other Global 2000 enterprises running OpenStack at massive scale. The development priorities for OpenStack in both the community and at Mirantis have shifted from feature racing to stability at scale and day two operations.”


Mirantis OpenStack 7.0, which is  based on OpenStack Kilo,  enables richer OpenStack environments through a number of new features for Cinder, Glance, Horizon, Keystone, Neutron and Sahara. It features out-of-the box integration with VMware vCenter while offering choice in networking, including, but not limited to, Cisco ACI, Juniper Contrail and VMware NSX fabrics.

The company said this release is able to specify flexible underlay network topology in a simple manner using network templates;

·         Tune control-plane architecture by moving services onto separate controller nodes;

·         Deploy controllers on virtual machines for small footprint deployment;

·         Build hybrid clouds with hierarchical multi-tenancy;

·         Secure integration of control-plane various IT systems with SSL endpoint encryption;

·         Scale North-South traffic with Distributed Virtual Router (DVR);

·         Integrate with container platforms, including Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes;

·         Simplify bringing VMware environments to the cloud with new functions such as NSX-v  and vSphere Distributed Switch (VDS);

·         Deploy multiple Hadoop or Spark big data clusters in parallel through new Sahara features and gain additional flexibility via an updated plug-in for HDP v2.2.

In addition, Mirantis is extending the support period of the distribution from two years to three.
