This paper provides reference architectures for setting up a secure, multitenant, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) private cloud using Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Solaris. The reference architectures are useful for cutting costs by condensing database workloads and achieving faster deployment of Oracle Database instances. OpenStack also provides a single management tool for multiple clouds and, hence, makes data center operations simpler. The reference architectures are based on Oracle servers, the Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 appliance, and Oracle network switches, and they run Oracle Solaris 11.3, which comes fully integrated with the Juno release of OpenStack.
