    • Heat’s convergence engine optimized to handle larger loads and more complex actions for horizontal scaling for improved performance for stateless mode
    • Enhanced OpenStack Client provides a consistent set of calls for creating resources, no longer requiring the need to learn the intricacies of each service API
    • Support for software development kits (SDKs) in various languages
    • New “give me a network,” feature capable of creating a network, attaching a server to it, assigning an IP to that server, and making the network accessible in a single action
OpenStack Mitaka Support
  • Easily Import Existing Workloads
    Customers can now quickly leverage their existing vSphere workloads and start managing them via standard OpenStack APIs. The ability to directly import vSphere VMs into OpenStack and run critical Day 2 operations against them via OpenStack enables you to quickly move your environment to an OpenStack Framework.

  • Compact Management Control Plane
    Building on enhancements from previous releases, this feature is focused on organizations looking to evaluate OpenStack or to build a small OpenStack cloud for branch locations quickly and cost effectively. The VMware Integrated OpenStack architecture has been optimized to support a compact architecture mode that dramatically reduces the infrastructure footprint saving resource costs and overall operational complexity.
