Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

Mirantis is well suited for someone who doesn't mind spending money but doesn't quite want to commit to a cloud provider like AWS. It is also well suited for small or junior technical teams that don't have the skills, experience, or time to run their own openstack clusters.

Proxmox VE

From my own experience, I believe Proxmox VE to be very well suited for small businesses that need a virtualisation solution without breaking the bank. You can start off with the free edition and that might very well be all you need. If you do require a paid plan, there are multiple plans to choose from, to suit most budgets. This isn't to say it not's suitable for medium and large businesses, but I have no personal experience of it at that scale.

Organisations with experience of Debian and/or Ubuntu based systems, will feel right at home straight away. The base OS is mostly unchanged from upstream so things generally just work as you'd expect them to.

One scenario that might make you think twice about Proxmox VE, is if you have already standardised on non-ZFS storage, such as hardware RAID. Although I'm sure this can be made to work, Proxmox really shines when used in combination with ZFS.

Pros

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

  • Works out of the box. There is very little back-end configuration necessary for users.
  • The support is active and response times are very good.
  • Staff is extremely knowledgeable and can help with more complex concepts and design ideas.

Proxmox VE

  • Versatility. The ability to utilize more than one type of storage for each instance.
  • Stability. Proxmox VE is the most stable hypervisor management solution I have seen to date. It just keeps going and going and going.
  • Speed. Utilizing Linux KVM and OpenVZ, you get the fastest and more capable virtual machines on the market today. And Proxmox VE's interface is always instantly loaded when you need it.
  • Reliability. Using standard tools, including Red Hat Cluster Suite, and providing command-line tools as well, this makes maintaining and using Proxmox VE more reliable and manageable to quickly get things back in running order when things do happen to stop.

Cons

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

  • Mirantis OpenStack managed services are expensive. Very expensive for a start-up.
  • I'd personally like to see a little more under the hood details in the status pages.
  • Mirantis could also benefit heavily from a free "light" version that start-ups could use to run their own cloud. Maybe coupled with advertising or some sort of surveys.

Proxmox VE provides the most capable, yet stable virtualization platform in the market today. Licensing options are also competitive and cost-effective for support, and support is extremely fast and knowledgable of getting issues resolved as quickly and soundly as possible.

Out of every product I have used for this, Proxmox VE is the most concise, clear, and functional I have ever seen. I continue to use Proxmox VE even after occasionally comparing alternatives available because of it's usability, design concept, and great support of features. It's very unlikely I will find a product that can even compete with Proxmox VE in every angle of what Proxmox VE provides.

Proxmox VE's ha-cluster functionality is very much improved, though does have a not-very-often occurrence of failure. In a 2-node cluster of Proxmox VE, HA can fail causing an instance that is supposed to migrate between the two nodes stop and fail until manually recovered through the command-line tools provided. Other than this, the HA clustering capability of Proxmox VE has proven to be reliable in 3 or more clustered environments with much less chance of these failures to occur.

Proxmox VE's interfacing is always fast to load, both the Web interface and the command-line tool interfaces. Reporting is practically real time almost all the time, and you can see everything in mere seconds, easily able to identify if something is wrong or it everything is in tip-top shape as always desired

Alternatives Considered

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

Mirantis is a managed service. If you're looking for that type of support, infra management, and to relieve yourself of the burden then they are a great option. If you're looking to build your own cloud and save as much money as possible then running openStack yourself is your best option. I would say in the category of OpenStack managed services Mirantis is ahead of Ubuntu (who uses JuJu to manage everything) but behind Rackspace

Proxmox VE

With an incredibly easy to use interface, quick setup, and wide support for different hardware we found it was the perfect lab tool for our department to build, stage, and eventually move VMs into production with.

Proxmox VE provides everything you need to quickly add new storage mediums, network and local, as well as networking interfaces, such as using Linux standard bridges and now Open-vSwitch bridges which can be even more scalable than before. Proxmox VE 4.0 dropped support for OpenVZ in favor of the more well supported and native LXC and made an upgrade path to it very simple.

Return on Investment

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes

  • Mirantis did help our business figure out if openstack was right for us.
  • Using Mirantis I felt a bit cheated on understanding the deep technical knowledge of how openstack works. But that being said that is probably a value add more than a detractor for most people.
  • Using Mirantis was considerably cheaper than AWS.
