Solinea, the OpenStack software and services company, announces the release of goldstone. It is the first purpose-built monitoring and management platform for OpenStack clouds.

While the efforts to date in the OpenStack ecosystem have been primarily focused on installation and configuration, there have been limited options for managing and operating OpenStack clouds at scale. As enterprises and service providers expand adoption of OpenStack, one of the key challenges they face is how to operate these new, complex environments in the same manner as their legacy IT infrastructure, and how can they gain the same level of transparency and visibility. Solinea’s goldstone solves these challenges by providing an operations monitoring and management platform purpose-built for OpenStack clouds.

“Solinea recognized the challenges that customers were having in operating their OpenStack clouds early on,” says Solinea CEO Francesco Paola. “The existing operations management solutions are neither adequate nor specific enough for simplifying the operational processes for OpenStack. We developed goldstone to make it easier for operators to monitor and manage OpenStack clouds.”

goldstone will simplify OpenStack infrastructure monitoring and management by providing solutions in the following key areas:

goldstone Server
○ Discover and visualize the OpenStack cloud configuration and logs
○ Report on key events and metrics at all layers of the cloud platform
○ Analyze and diagnose common issues
○ Automate common cloud management and maintenance tasks

goldstone Plug-Ins
 Cloud – goldstone plugins are being developed to extend support for a wide range of open infrastructure solutions. 

○ Third Party – goldstone plugins for third party hardware and software solutions will enable the centralized management of these resources for your operations teams.
○ Virtual Machines – goldstone plugins can provide you even more data about the VMs and the containers running on your infrastructure.
