vSphere has a long history of being a stable and resilient platform that offers many benefits to host cloud infrastructures. As an enterprise-class hypervisor with production-level features and support, vSphere is an excellent solution for enhancing OpenStack.
Many vSphere features facilitate the implementation of OpenStack
by simplifying configuration and reducing the number of steps required to provide resources.
vSphere platform capabilities are exposed to OpenStack using drivers that map OpenStack requests into equivalents that VMware solutions can interpret. VMware provides these drivers to the OpenStack community free of charge.
