ManageIQ and Openstack
This is an introduction to a short article serie dedicated to ManageIQ/OpenStack integration.
ManageIQ is a cloud management tool which allows user to control IT infrastucture from single web UI even it runs on different cloud or on-premise technologies. Supported platforms include RHV, OpenStack, VMware, AWS, Azure etc.
OpenStack is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service software. So it can take hardware machines in your datacenter, set it up, manage it and provide virtual compute, storage and networking resources on top of that.
I spent some time working on integration ManageIQ and OpenStack to allow ManageIQ control OpenStack deployment. One of tricky areas is Telemetry (Events&Metrics) which I'm focusing in following articles.
