IBM: OpenStack Cloud

Project Details

The current server provisioning at NDSU requires increased staffing in order to handle the influx of requests at the beginning of every semester. By using IBM's OpenStack project, some of these problems can be alleviated. As part of this project, the team needed to work with IT to understand the end users and provisioning requirements, use those requirements to design an OpenStack deployment architecture, and then validate that design.
