OpenStack Solum Hopes to Compete in the Open Source PaaS Space

Learn about the benefits and drawbacks of microservices with best practices for your own architecture, brought to you in partnership with Iron.io.

Looks like Alex Freedland's recent prediction that OpenStack Will Eat IaaS AND PaaS Vendors could be coming true.  Just last week, Rackspace, one of the founders of OpenStack and a primary steward of many of its projects, announced Project Solum. 

Here are the areas that Solum plans to address:

1) Ease of application development and deployment via integrated support for Git, CI/CD, and IDEs

2) Ease of application lifecycle management across dev, test, and production types of environments -- supported by the Heat project’s automated orchestration (resource deployment, monitoring-based self-healing, auto-scaling, etc.)

3) Ease of application portability between public and private clouds -- with no vendor-driven requirements within the application stack or control system


Together with OpenStack's Project Havana and Heat, OpenStack Solum will be a direct competitor to other open source cloud PaaSes like Cloud Foundry and OpenShift.
