The last seven years have resulted in considerable improvement in the OpenStack core, and it has become the de facto platform for virtualizing communication service provider (CSP) networks. But when CSPs try to use a “vanilla” version of OpenStack to support Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), they learn the hard way that OpenStack is more complicated when it comes to meeting the rigorous demands of a telecommunications network; most CSPs get past the install (day 0) but fall flat once they try to actually operate OpenStack (day2). This paper describes IDX’s experiences throughout the delivery lifecycle of OpenStack.


  • Key measures that affect the cost of implementing and managing an OpenStack solution
  • What you can expect from a standard vanilla OpenStack distribution typically offered by enterprise software vendors
  • How Wind River®Titanium Cloud, based on OpenStack StarlingX, drastically reduces the cost of installing and maintaining a virtualized infrastructure
