About Getting Started

The best way of getting started is to have a 5 minutes experience with real env by register and start use!

Please note, due to high volume of requests, incorporate email domain is higly recommanded to register yourself! An scaning service will periodically scan and may deactivate those free email registrations, such as with domains of Gmail, Hotmail etc.

Due to constraints, there may be limitation for the access to the administrator features, such as admin dashboard, hyperviros, user management, ceph cluster etc. However those will be available by simply a note to engage us.

Computingstack Portal solution for the OpenStack has fundamental difference from known solutions such as Horizion, Skyline and other billing portal Fleio etc. Each of those has been driven by different principles so that it ends up a different business effect. Here is how ComputingStack Frontend can render with a principle of pursuing "Premium User Experiences".

Main FeaturesNot available for time being Support all historic OpenStack features and components
  • All features People see at Horizon
  • Seamless console of data backend to have one pane of metric view, like CPU, RAM, Network and Storage
  • Enterprise Ready security features, MFA, Encryption and more
  • Full user and project enrollment, registration process
  • Billing and Rating
  • Ceph dashboard seamless integration
  • Kubernetes dashboard integration
  • High LightsImprovements over Horizion history, however, not accessible yet! The maturity and accessibility aren't guanranteed Suits standard deployment, Research Institutes, University and Small Clouds etc. Due to aged framework, UI is out of date and less responsive Premium Enterprise Cloud, Medium public clouds

    For the insights how different ComputingStack frontend is from other known products, or the corresponding frontend solutions of major Openstack backed public cloud offerings such as OVH, Redhat, Moupheus, Fleio etc, please reach out for the perspectives!

    OpenStack Cloud has never been easy, so are the requirements! From a research PoC toward a full public cloud, OpenStack requirements can vary significantly!

    ComputingStack frontend solution is known to meet from virtual machine focused private cloud toward a comprehensive public cloud with all major services such as virtual machine service, Container Orchestration of Kubernetes, Swift Object Store, Database service, and Load Balancer service, user recruiting, billing and payment! Computingstack portal solution is generally self-manageable, however based on your use cases, the configuration and the way of making it to be working for the business is not necessarily self-explained and straitforward.

    To facilitate, Computingstack team has designed an easy questionaire and a free consultation session for serious inqury to identify and help the need. Write to admin@computingstack.com, or approach us at here

    Getting Closer? If yes, nothing can be more helpful than a real deployment to see further compatibility and get a real sense of how you business can benefit from here.

    A trial is defined as integrating ComputingStack Portal with your own cloud OpenStack setup on your premise. All install and provision will be fairly self-paced like an eventual production adoption is. During the process, there is no stuff from Computingstack needed. So integration can be just a few hours efforts!

    Register by click below button will enroll you to a user space from where artifact, install guides and other insights are available to members!

    Computingstack Portal license is based on the CPU number of a Cloud. Specifically the number is the core value returned by nova hypervisor API

    License Based on core or partner price per use cases. For detail, please contact!

  • Notes:
    CORE is defined as a single logical processor on the physical machine that is associated with a physical CPU core and hyper threading. In OpenStack term, this is equivalent to physical process. The value is not necessarily translated into the CPU physical and factored by the threading number. Technically it bases on the hypervisor properties by Nova API query.
    CLI #openstack hypervisor show xxx can just print the capacity of a hypervisor.

    For new license for standard deployment or renewing a license, the process can be up to a few hours. All we need is rough core number of the said cloud. user the OpenStack CLI below, to get the number of virtual cpu number of each hypervisors, multiply by the price defined to get the amount of actual pay.

    With the production license, the logo chang, hyperlink replacement customization can be provided at free by a dedicated image (access authorized per your docker id at docker.io).

    Some in person contact may be needed to generate a proper contract, receipt and payment info. Paypal and international wiring are accepted.
