MTS has selected Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack to power the company’s next-generation cloud infrastructure. Charmed OpenStack is based on technologies such as Metal-as-a-Service (MAAS), Juju Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM), OpenStack Charms and Ceph.
MTS plans to leverage Charmed OpenStack’s advanced lifecycle management capabilities and flexible cloud-native architecture to better enable multi-vendor and cross-platform integration.
MTS has chosen to partner with Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu, to further its efforts in building out a full-fledged digital ecosystem based on an open source platform.
The partnership is aimed at decreasing time-to-market and speeding up deployment of new services — including toward MTS’ expected future 5G deployment — as well as reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of cloud infrastructure.
MTS also anticipates to enhance its core technology expertise and set up a competence center for developing OpenStack-based solutions.
MTS plans to begin operationally rolling out the project next year, ultimately deploying Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack solution across 11 data centers in Russia.
