Behnia said BMC would be interested in OpenStack, but hasn’t seen customers adopting it just yet. BMC usually waits until customers actually deploy to add management functionality. “OpenStack lacks capabilities for mission critical environments today, but development and enthusiasm is growing,” said Behnia. Beauchamp added that BMC will remain agnostic and plug into any infrastructure. “We’ve abstracted management so we can plug and play. Customers don’t want to be hardwired into an infrastructure stack,” said Beauchamp.
