OpenStack has gained a lot of prominence in the cloud ecosystem, but it can be a difficult platform to setup and maintain. Ganeti is software developed at Google which can be used to manage physical hardware in order to host virtualization workloads.

This presentation will cover the primary differences between the two platforms including a summary of how each are implemented and their history. This session will also discuss many of the pros and cons of each platform and best practices for both platforms.

At the OSU Open Source Lab, we have been long time users and promoters of Ganeti since 2009. It’s enabled the lab to better serve its FOSS hosting activities in a stable yet easy to use manner.
