Mirantis and IBM Run Ambitious OpenStack Benchmark Test


OpenStack player Mirantis continues to deliver unique offerings, and the latest is a benchmark test that is targeted to help IT departments guage performance, scalability and managability metrics. Mirantis and IBM’s SoftLayer division, which is focused on cloud computing, set up 350 physical servers on an IBM SoftLayer bare-metal multi-datacenter cloud to run the benchmark test. Mirantis OpenStack was working with 75,000 virtual servers, provisioned in parallel streams levels ranging from 100 at a time to 500 at a time.
