Achieving availability and resiliency in OpenStack Telco networks

OpenStack has been selected as the cloud platform of choice by most Telcos for NFV. While OpenStack supports basic levels of availability it does not support service continuity and stateful fault tolerance. This is a major concern for the Telcos. By inserting a Virtualized Cloud Resilience Layer that transparently brings Telco reliability to any cloud application, Telcos can use OpenStack with the confidence that any application can be deployed with selectable levels of availability, including stateful fault tolerant with geo-redundancy, without required code changes.

Enabling always-on applications

Regardless of which stage of NFV transformation you are in, the need for availability and resiliency is always there — whether you have virtualized your applications or are using a cloud solution. But typical hypervisors like KVM, and cloud solutions such as OpenStack, do not support high availability or continuous availability. In addition, modifying applications is time consuming, complex and risky making NFV a daunting proposition for Telcos, Communications Service Providers and their customers. This solution brief explains how Stratus’ Software Defined Availability software solutions (SDA) moves fault management and automatic failover from the applications to the software infrastructure.

OpenStack Private Cloud: Stratus SDA Beta

Simple enterprise-ready OpenStack software defined availability (SDA)

OpenStack has critical mass and is the de facto standard for deploying open source-based clouds. With increasing levels of investment by service providers like AT&T, Comcast, and Rackspace and infrastructure vendors like Cisco, EMC, HP, IBM, Intel, and Red Hat, OpenStack private cloud/hybrid clouds are becoming a strong alternative to traditional IT models for large enterprises. Moving to the cloud offers the promise of flexibility, scale, and cost savings. However, a standard cloud model is not inherently designed for enterprise-level availability. With multiple points of risk at both the hardware and software layers, many organizations are hesitant to move their business-critical applications to the cloud. Potential costs may outweigh benefits. Read More
