The real long-term test of any large-scale, modern infrastructure is an economic one, according to Ubuntu creator Mark Shuttleworth.
Shuttleworth, who serves as an advisor to Canonical, the open-source software company that delivers Ubuntu, said at OpenStack East 2016 that the biggest driver of economics in the cloud will be operations, particularly how many processes a team can operate using OpenStack.
Because of OpenStack, high-level, open-flow operations are possible, Shuttleworth said. This architecture is built to allow users to distill multiple actions into one action. Large companies that run multiple Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds in multiple environments can gain a birds-eye view of the underlying architecture that ties everything together.
