Im building a SaaS application that exposes users websites to the internet, thus causing me to need a flexible underlayer with computing power that varies... in order to achieve this, I figured that openstack may make my life easier by allowing me to adjust the computing nodes under my application without interfering with the application itself.

If i didnt use openstack, i figure the application would have to somehow attach and detach nodes... and that seems like a mess with load balancing and mirrored databases and memcache and stuff..

Also... im curious if google compute engine will work well with openstack.... do they expose intel-vt or amd-v? Is there another cloud that does expose this stuff?

  • Nested virtualization is not supported on GCE. – Faizan Jan 6 '17 at 20:26

It seems that companies like Ravello System and Cloudscaling has managed to overcome the nested virtualization issue. In the case of Ravello they have created their own hypervisor HVX.
