Openstack from Mirantis for stability

asked 2017-02-05 18:34:33 -0500

What are the main benefits of Openstack from Mirantis? I thought it was stability. This caught my eye because as an openstack admin of an Icehouse cluster, things are not very stable. Especially nova-api. When I look at the mirantis docs it seems everything is for installing on virtualbox. We do all of our installations via puppet currently for openstack-icehouse.

Is mirantis more stable or is more of that newer versions of openstack are? Just curious what the purpose is.

You could certainly argue that commercial distributions lead to a more stable cloud since their reduction of functionality and architecture somewhat restricts you but also restricts the potential for misconfiguration or simply bad architecture. Also the fact that those distributions are always behind the release schedule of OpenStack allows you to benefit from fixes backported into the code base you're running. At the same time, of course, there might be functionality you need that is not supported or not there at all.
