I am currently evaluating Openstack for my company and trying to figure out how it integrates with VMWare. The question is does the VMWare API allow a one to one mapping between the features in VCenter and what's the cloud tenant can see in Openstack? Also can someone point me to some good in depth guides to integrating and adminstration of Openstack/Vmware?

I'm also looking for similar information on comparing our vCenter setup while running a vApp of OpenStack VMs. We are evaluating Mirantis, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack, and came across a PDF of VOVA (dated 2013) that gave a simple analogy between vCenter and OpenStack that we found helpful. Look at 1.3.1 OpenStack and vSphere: Conceptual Analogies in this PDF from vmware: ( There is an update on VOVA in the vmware community, posted in May 2014, of all the drivers/features in Icehouse that may complete that picture. ( Perhaps some one can update this or share something similar in this thread.
