This technical whitepaper, a collaboration between Canonical and VMware, proposes a reference architecture for running OpenStack on VMware vSphere. It draws on experience both companies have in joint customer engagements, and lists some best practices and recommendations for getting the most out of existing enterprise IT infrastructure while benefiting from new and open technologies such as OpenStack. This reference architecture is specific to OpenStack Havana and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with vCenter 5.1 or greater.
