Openstack in enterprise [closed]

I guys,

I'm testing / playing with Openstack for a couple of month now. As a technical guy i really like it, the large community, the support , the web dashboard, open standard, APIs and so on are good points compared to Microsoft or VMware solutions. However as a traditional infrastructure consultant i'm trying to see how openstack could replace existing solutions. And there Openstack miss some basic and important features for company's infrastructure such as :

  • Link iso to instance
  • Extend disk
  • Change cpu ram
  • Make templates
  • Shutdown instance
  • etc

Of course there are some alternative like virt-manager to do that but if we want Openstack to be widely deployed we maybe need to feet traditional customers habits.

I was also thinking that i am maybe missing the point and Openstack would be dedicated to program launching and terminating on demand instance but in that case (i think) we are missing a great opportunity.

Thank you for sharing your opinion,

Ignoring the fact that OpenStack does actually support most (all?) of the things you listed, this isn't currently phrased as a question and therefore isn't appropriate for this forum. Consider breaking this down into separate questions for each of the things you want to achieve.

And where could we discuss about it ?

The general OpenStack mailing list - this site is for Question and Answer style interactions, not open-ended discussions (see ).
