Implementation of a Low Cost IaaS using Openstack

Tiago Rosado, Jorge Bernardino

Abstract

Cloud computing has emerged as an important paradigm enabling software, infrastructure, and information to be used as services over the network in an on-demand manner. Cloud computing infrastructures can provide adaptive resource provisioning with very little initial investment while scaling to a large number of commodity computing nodes. In this paper, we present Openstack, a modular and highly adaptive open source architecture for both public and private cloud solutions. It is shown an experimental implementation of an IaaS, built on entry-level hardware, demonstrating the hardware, and most important, the basic software components needed to set the foundation for a solid entry-point to setup a low-cost Openstack cloud infrastructure.
