I am think that money is not important at all. I have vmware that work fine.i have vRrealize,vcenter,... why i should use openstack on top of my esxi?

or I have kubernetis that work fine. i can connect it to ceph. it is perfect. why i should use openstack with kubrnetis.

I read a lot of document but i can not understand advantage of openstack. I know it is multihypervisor.i know it has api for developer. but this advantage not important for me now. forexample in private cloud i do not need api . how can openstack be important when hypervisor like esxi is perfect and has it is own api(money is not problem)

Partial answer: Because Magnum makes is comparatively easy to set up a Kubernetes cluster that can be scaled up or down.

If your VMware cluster has all the features you need, you don't need OpenStack. I would think some companies prefer OpenStack because it gives them more control. Not sure if the license costs are really an issue.

You have full access to the source code. You can modify it. Nothing is hidden. You have a huge number of networking and storage options.
