VMworld 2014: VMware VIO – Production Openstack in OVA

Today at VMworld San Francisco, VMware announced the Private beta of a new product named VIO

VIO (VMware Integrated OpenStack)

VIO empowers VMware Administrators to successfully deliver & operate Production Grade OpenStack.image

  • VIO = Openstack + vCloud Suite
  • Production Grade OpenStack delivered as a vApp (OVA)
  • Delivers standard open source OpenStack code, with tools to install and Operate OpenStack.
  • UI based OVA install from vCenter Web Client
  • All OpenStack & other required components deployed automatically as 15 VMs.
  • No Additional OpenStack Training/Certification required
  • Expedited time-to-value by rapid OpenStack deployment
    (Just saw a demo: after 20 minutes you will have a Fully Functional Production OpenStack environment. Crazy!)

The Product reminds me of the existent vSphere OpenStack Virtual Appliance (VOVA)
