Paypal To Drop VMware From 80,000 Servers and Replace It With OpenStack
Boris Renski, co-founder of Mirantis, an OpenStack consultancy as well as OpenStack Foundation board member recently told Business Insider that PayPal is in the midst of replacing VMware on about 10,000 computer servers. Those servers will go live this summer, Renski said. "The grand vision for project is, over time, they will replace all of their virtual infrastructure with OpenStack, not just PayPal, but PayPal and eBay, together," Renski said. That's about 80,000 servers across their data centers, he said.
