Description

This contribution describes the usage and benchmarking of a commercial data centre running Openstack. Different cloud provisional tools are described highlighting the pros and cons of each system. A comparison is made between this facility and a standard grid T2 site in terms of job throughput and availability. Usage of the centre’s local object store is also described.
