OpenStack is no one person or company or idea or line of code. It derives its strength from the collective community. No matter when you joined or what role you play, you have the ability to shape the future of OpenStack and computing.
In three short years since the community was established, OpenStack has truly become the center of cloud innovation, attracting hundreds of talented developers, brand-name users, and support from major industry leaders. This calls for a big toast to you, the OpenStack community!
As OpenStack evolves, its requirements for Identity Management evolve with it. In the early days, there was a single Nova server, and that stored user-id and password. Once OpenStack evolved into a body of servers, copying passwords around comprised too big a security risk. Keystone was first implemented as a central repository for those passwords. Adam Young writes in fine details what the plans are for the future of the OpenStack Identity Management service.
A lot is going on on Glance lately, although you may have not noticed. The team has been working on several blueprints, and most of them aim to promote glance as a public service. Flavio Percoco has published an update of what’s cooking in OpenStack Image Service.
