Thanks guys. I think - it quite answer my question. Now I have to figure out - how practically to do it (perform such test installation), but that is another story...

Can I run them (xen or kvm) over blades , designed for VmWare? I mean - quite surely , since at the end those blades have x86 type processors - I should be able to run those hypervisors.. But - will not it cause drastic derogation of performance , compared to run of ESXi hypervisor over them?

Hi. As many here - I am total newbie to OpenStack(while have some experience with commercial (AWS) cloud, Virtual box Vagrant and so on) What I am trying to figure out is - can we migrate part of our ESX clusters to OpenStack... Main reasons :

  1. switch to DevOps work mode (automatic deployment of Vms by developers without involvement of IT)
  2. Cut expanses (VMware licences for Vsphere and other commercial components)

So - question is - if it is feasible. I suppose DevOps mode with OpenStack + Vsphere integration is feasible , but it means - we will have to continue to pay for VmWare licences... What I can not understand - is it feasible to run OpenStack on ESX hardware without Vsphere - basing only of free esxi component on "backhand" of OpenStack?
