OpenStack Smart Labs on leading clouds
OpenStack Smart Lab Use Cases
OpenStack Smart Labs powered by nested virtualization
HVX nested hypervisor with overlay networking enables running multi-node OpenStack /KVM environments with hardware acceleration. Pay per hour - 2 vCPU/ 4GB RAM chunks start at $0.14/hr.
Ravello OpenStack Smart Lab Benefits
HVX implements Intel VT and AMD-V functionality in software. This allows users to run OpenStack with KVM instead of qemu in AWS or Google leading to higher performance.
Real world scenarios
Natively, AWS and Google are limited in terms of networking. Ravello enables users to run complex networking including multicast, VLANs, PXE boot and other “bare metal” networking.
Collaboration and sharing
Snapshot entire multi-node OpenStack deployments with networking definitions. Share with internally or with the community to collaborate on best practices, issue resolution etc.
Deploy OpenStack environments for testing, training or PoCs in any AWS or Google Cloud region for the best possible user-experience.
Simple, usage based pricing with no up-front fees or commitment. For example, a 4-node OpenStack environment costs $0.84/hr in the US and incremental 2 vCPU/4GB chunks cost $0.14/hr.
