Mirantis or Red Hat OpenStack? Follow Your Taste!

Imagine you are a little child standing in front of the huge display at an ice cream store: it feels like thousands of choices, different colors, flavors, with sprinkles, without sprinkles... Bottom line: it is hard to choose. Anyhow, every ice cream will satisfy your craving for a cold, delicious and creamy experience of ice cream melting on your tongue.

This is a similar situation in a completely different field of life: imagine now you are an IT admin. You have a full range of vendors to choose from when it comes to picking the ideal platform for Cloud Computing. May it be Software-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service or else, all have one thing in common: OpenStack is the powerful management layer to deliver services at best possible and required granularity.

Different vendors offer different solutions: Mirantis, Red Hat, and many more have taken on the journey to develop their own OpenStack solutions. A compelling argument for Mirantis OS is the automatic deployment function of compute nodes and instances making administrators' lives stress-free.

As the first vendor in the market, Fujitsu was able to certify the latest generation dual-socket FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2530 M2 and RX2540 M2 for Mirantis OpenStack in the latest version 8.0, which can be run with Ubuntu Linux. Additionally, a certification for the M1 generation of both above mentioned PRIMERGYs could be accomplished. Thus, Fujitsu can now offer a broader portfolio of certified server hardware to deliver the optimal OpenStack platform depending on different customer needs.

The important point is obvious: If you have a chocolate day, you do not need to take strawberry ice cream as chocolate is not available. You have the choice to satisfy yourself just as you wanted.
