DOCOMO Develops Cloud Server Mgt Software in OpenStack Grizzly

NTT DOCOMO has developed cloud server management software that shortens the service response time of cloud services by up to 50%.

DOCOMO said its source code has been provided to the OpenStack Foundation and is a standard feature of Grizzly, the new version of the OpenStack cloud platform.

Some features of DOCOMO's software:

  • Depending on service usage conditions, the cloud platform can be switched between virtual and physical servers.
  • Software conventionally used for virtual server control can be used with physical servers without altering the software, thanks to compatibility with the OpenStack application programming interface (API) for virtual servers.
  • Up to several hundred physical servers can be managed through OpenStack scalability. Operating systems can be simultaneously installed and updated on multiple servers.
