I am confused how MAAS (Metal as a service) is different from Cloud? What is the difference or similarities between MAAS and openstack, are they both same or different
I am trying to understand why someone would need OpenStack when MAAS and Juju are available.
I know that MAAS abstracts the machines in order to use them as ressources and Juju allows to install services on those ressources.
I also know that the recommended way to deploy OpenStack is to use Juju and MAAS.
However, for me, MAAS and Juju already define a Cloud in the sense that we do not need to
I am trying to get my head around the connection between Openstack, JuJu and Maas and have managed to confuse myself. I am hoping someone can help me out with working things out?
Basically, I understand Maas. You use it to deploy an OS image to a cluster using PXE. You can then deploy JuJu Charms to this computer resource. Nice and easy.
