In support of our Openstack Edition, Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (IAC video) is introducing a community supported "Multi-Cloud Acceleration Kit" (MCAK) that extends IAC Starter Edition to enable provisioning of OpenStack clouds as well as vCloud, Amazon EC2 as well as vCenter and UCS blades.
IAC provides both a real service catalog and an orchestration tool that help OpenStack be adopted by the enterprise. IAC provides rich Role-Based Access Control,physical provisioning and adapters to a large variety of back IT systems including help desks, CMDB's, directories and many other systems.
For newScale customers, this means that you can use your service catalog to provide cloud services to a variety of clouds from the same familiar interface.
This SlideShare presentation gives you the highlights,
- VMware Virtual Center
- VMware vCloud Director
- OpenStack Nova Compute
- Amazon EC2
- Create supporting orchestration abstractions to make it easy and transparent to extend to any cloud
- Use a common model, where possible, to represent cloud objects, properties and methods
- Provide extensions, where necessary, to accommodate VI-specific objects, properties and methods
