Deploying OpenStack: Virtual Infrastructure or Dedicated Hardware
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Cloud computing is a computing model throughwhich resources such as – infrastructure, applications orsoftware are offered as services to the users. Cloud computingoffers the opportunity of virtualization through deployingmultiple virtual machines (VMs) on single physical machine,which increases resource utilization and reduces powerconsumption. The main benefit of a virtualized technology relieson its on-demand resource allocation strategy and flexiblemanagement. OpenStack is one of the promising open sourcesolutions which offers infrastructure as a service. This papercovers how underlying infrastructure for deployment affects theperformance of OpenStack. The aim is to provide a comparativeview on the performance of OpenStack while deploying it over avirtual environment versus using dedicated hardware. Weconduct three basic tests on both environments to check CPU performance, data transfer rate, and bandwidth. The resultsshow that OpenStack over dedicated hardware performs muchbetter than OpenStack over virtualized environment.
