Openstack Reference Architecture

This white paper documents the creation, purpose and benefits of Paddy Power Betfair’s Private OpenStack Cloud. It is aimed at those looking to adopt a similar approach to an extensible, scalable and performant platform for their own production estate.

The paper documents the programme approach and presents the rationale for each individual technology supplier. It also explains the high level design around each technology. As such, a ‘reference stack’ is presented, which the paper hopes to promote.
