VMware Gets Dumped On As PayPal Embraces OpenStack
PayPal has just announced its intention to embrace OpenStack cloud architecture, ripping out software from rival VMware in more than 80,000 servers to make room for the open-source solution, according to a report in Business Insider this morning.
The plan was revealed by the OpenStack Foundation’s board member Boris Renski, one of the co-founders of OpenStack consultant company Mirantis, which is backed by Intel and also has ties with PayPal. To begin with, PayPal will replace VMware on around 10,000 of its servers, with this first phase of the new deployment set to be up and running by the summer. But the changes won’t end there, as PayPal and its parent company eBay are ultimately looking at replacing all of their VMware virtual infrastructure on the estimated 80,000 servers they run across their data centers.
