Abstract: IBM System x Solution for IBM Cloud Manager with OpenStack reference architecture is primarily targeted at managed service providers (MSPs), cloud service providers (CSPs), and enterprise private clouds that require a complete solution for cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS). This document provides planning, design considerations, and reference configurations for implementing IBM Cloud Manager with OpenStack 4.1 on IBM System x products, so as to lower the barriers of adoption, such as maintenance cost, complexity, and a lack of convergence that are traditionally associated with the OpenStack technology. The reference architecture focuses on achieving
competitive performance and workload density while minimizing procurement costs by optimizing the configuration of IBM System x hardware and software, plus optimized configurations for cloud deployment.
