OpenStack is a free and open software suite for providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) both for private clouds like we're implementing and large public clouds like Rackspace. We are currently using "Nova" compute services, "Keystone" identity service, "Horizon" web dashboard, "Cinder" volume service,"Glance" image management,"Neutron" networking service, and "Heat" orchestration service. We are currently using the "Mitaka" release (aka 2016.1 released May 2016) 14.04LTS "Trusty" with KVM as the virtualization layer. We also have an OpenStack "Swift" and AWS S3 compatible object store based on Ceph with 123TB available storage (370.97T raw less 3x replication)

As of Jan2017 we have 99 physical nodes, with 1440 physical cores (presenting as 2880 due to hyperthreading) and 12T RAM.
