They use OpenStack for their private Cloud Platform for application development and its Service Platform, with more than 50,000 instances on OpenStack in operation.

Yahoo! found that they had to refresh their private cloud infrastructure to resolve its IT challenges, including an increasing operational management burden. The decision was made to deploy OpenStack to support its growing business, and in the process adopt enterprise storage to support its OpenStack environment in partnership with NetApp.

This session will focus on the factors that drove Yahoo! Japan to move to an OpenStack solution, and the considerations and requirements that led to a solution addressing significant data management requirements including:

  • Highly available storage to realize non-disruptive operation of OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure

  • Improved storage efficiency technology and increased storage efficiency

  • Data protection capabilities to build DR environment connecting remote data centers
