You have got your IaaS cloud up and running but are your developers happy? Has your IaaS forced your developers to also become agile sysadmins? At Symantec, we want out cloud developers to remain developers and this means abstracting away complexities of compute, storage and networking details and instead focus on actual software development.
After we built our Openstack cloud at Symantec, our next logical step was to build a Platform as a Service that to provide even more automation and streamlining to our customer’s experience. In this talk, we will share our experience and lessons learned in building a unified customer facing PaaS solution around our Openstack cloud.
Some of the topics we will cover are:
- The results of our evaluation of different PaaS platforms that are out there like Cloudfoundry, Openshift and Deis
- Potential design architectures to use when building your own PaaS from scratch
- Adding multi-tenancy to your PaaS
- Benefits of running on both containers and VMs
