Today, March 25, Mirantis one of the largest OpenStack integrators, announced the release of Mirantis Fuel for OpenStack, its own library of cloud management tools, to public.
Mirantis is one of the largest independent integrators of NASA open source cloud initiative known as Openstack. Today the company opened its private library of configuration and deployment tools, called FUEL for OpenStack, to the public.
FUEL consists of verified deployment scripts for implementing a variety of OpenStack deployment configurations and it is already been used for projects that the company completed for customers such as PayPal, WebEx, NASA, and others.
The library could be used to deploy third-party OpenStack distributions, such as those provided by RedHat and Canonical, and can plug into customer’s existing operations infrastructure and it is being made available as open source code under an Apache 2.0 license.
Adrian Ionel, Mirantis CEO, said:
We originally developed Fuel™ for our internal services team to help accelerate OpenStack implementation projects, making this library freely available for the broader OpenStack community underscores our pledge to preserve our vendor-neutral and services-forward approach in helping customers adopt OpenStack.
One of the customers PayPal Senior Director of Platform Engineering and Operations, Saran Mandair, declares:
At PayPal, we are committed to collaborating with the open source community to drive further innovation. That’s why we are thrilled to be working with Mirantis to leverage OpenStack to help transform our global infrastructure into an agile and open cloud platform, our OpenStack project uses the Fuel library by Mirantis, which has dramatically accelerated our OpenStack deployment with robust, production-grade architecture while giving us the flexibility to tailor OpenStack to our needs.
