MobiledgeX assisted Openstack Deployment options

Deployment Scenario 1: Operator provides Baremetal Server IPMI access to MobiledgeX

In this Deployment option, Operator setup Bare-metal Servers with MobiledgeX recommended CPU,Memory and disk/HDD MobiledgeX specifications and provides MobiledgeX with Bare-metal Server IPMI access. MobiledgeX will then install base operating system on these servers, configure server side networking based on operator inputs, install IaaS Openstack and create cloudlets based on the internet and wireless handset Network Specifications of the operator and manage the cloudlets. MobiledgeX will also manage required Firewall in Openstack level for open networks. Operator can optionally manage additional Firewall as well.
