OpenStack as Layers

Sean Dague has a good suggestion for representing OpenStack’s pieces and how they stack up together to realize Infrastructure As A Service. His post expands on the timely topic of what should be part of an integrated release.

Keystone is not an authentication service

Nathan Kinder dives deeper into Keystone. While many would argue that Keystone in OpenStack world has something to do with authentication, Nathan argues that Keystone’s main purpose is authorization within an OpenStack deployment. While it’s true that Keystone can perform authentication itself, Nathan argues that doesn’t mean that it should be used for authentication.

Call for Proposals: Open Source Ecosystem Design Sessions at the Paris Summit

We’re continuing the Open Source Ecosystem Design Sessions at the OpenStack Summit Paris (Nov 3-7, 2014). It’s an opportunity to foster the projects and communities that don’t fall under the umbrella of the OpenStack Foundation, but are actively being used and developed within the greater ecosystem. We were inspired by everyone who came together to plan the next development cycle on their storage, configuration management, orchestration and networking projects. If you have an open source project that’s related to OpenStack and has a significant community of contributors, we invite you to submit a proposal.

OpenStack Ceilometer and the Gnocchi experiment

Your baby is ugly! Picking which code is required for Commercial Core.

Entertaining post by Rob Hirschfeld about DefCore. “There’s no point in sugar-coating this: selecting API and code sections for core requires making hard choices and saying no. DefCore makes this fair by 1) defining principles for selection, 2) going slooooowly to limit surprises and 3) being transparent in operation.”

Patchwork Onion delivers stability & innovation: the graphics that explains how we determine OpenStack Core

The OpenStack board, through the DefCore committee, has been working to define “core” for commercial users using a combination of minimum required capabilities (APIs) and code (Designated Sections).  These minimums are decided on a per project basis so it can be difficult to visualize the impact on the overall effect on the Integrated Release. Rob Hirschfeld and Joshua McKenty have created the patchwork onion graphic to help illustrate how core relates to the integrated release.

OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris

We’re doing it again, bigger: the OpenStack Foundation is delivering a training program to accelerate the speed at which new OpenStack developers are successful at integrating their own roadmap into that of the OpenStack project. If you’re a new OpenStack contributor or plan on becoming one soon, you should sign up for the next OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris, November 1-2. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit. We’re doing it again before the Paris Summit, as we did in Atlanta, only bigger.

Using gerrymander, a client API and command line tool for gerrit

Over the past couple of months Daniel P. Berrange has worked on creating a python library and command line tool for dealing with gerrit. Gerrymander was born out of his frustration with the inefficiency of handling reviews through the gerrit web UI. Reviewers can use gerrymander to query gerrit for reviews and quickly get a list of comments filtering out comments by bots.

OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris

We’re doing it again, bigger: the OpenStack Foundation is delivering a training program to accelerate the speed at which new OpenStack developers are successful at integrating their own roadmap into that of the OpenStack project.  If you’re a new OpenStack contributor or plan on becoming one soon, you should sign up for the next OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris, November 1-2. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit. We’re doing it again before the Paris Summit, as we did in Atlanta, only bigger.

With over 2000 developers from 80 different companies worldwide, OpenStack is one of the largest collaborative software-development projects. Because of its size, it is characterized by a huge diversity in social norms and technical conventions. These can significantly slow down the speed at which changes by newcomers are integrated in the OpenStack project.

OpenStack Foundation partnered with Upstream University to train new OpenStack developers and documentation writers to ensure their bug fix or feature is accepted in the OpenStack project in a minimum amount of time. Students are required to work on real-life bug fixes or new features during two days of real-life classes and online mentoring, until the work is accepted by OpenStack. The live two-day class teaches developers to navigate the intricacies of the project’s technical tools and social interactions. In followup sessions, the students benefit from individual online sessions to help them resolve any remaining problems they might have. Get all the details on the wiki.

Enrolment for the training session in Paris is open: register and reserve your seat for OpenStack Upstream Training in Paris, November 1-2.

OpenStack and NUMA placement

Nonuniform memory access (NUMA) is a memory architecture that provides different access times depending on which processor is being used. This is a useful feature for improving the performance of virtualized guests. Guests can be optimized to use specific NUMA nodes when provisioning resources. On most modern hardware, one can specify which NUMA nodes a guest can use for virtualization. As an example, by improving performance and reducing latency, the network functions virtualization (NFV) use cases can really take advantage of it. Tiago Rodrigues de Mello wrote a report on the current plans to improve use NUMA placement and asked for comments on his blog.

How do companies do OpenStack?

Yours truly is going around these days asking “how does your company do OpenStack?” to collect best practices and notable mistakes from various leaders of OpenStack’s corporate community. I’m hoping to build a ‘how to’ manual to help managers build better dev teams, more effective at collaborating while shipping products to their customers. This is an effort that goes hand-in-hand with training new developers with Upstream Training and other initiatives aimed at sustaining OpenStack growth. Email me, please, I’d love to hear more stories.

How to Effectively Contribute to An Open Source Project Such As OpenStack Neutron

As Neutron’s Tech Lead (PTL), Kyle Mestery has been mostly heads down working to ensure the Neutron project has a successful Juno release. Increasingly, and especially near OpenStack Juno milestone deadlines, he’s forced to make hard choices and start turning new features down in order to focus on shipping good quality code for Juno. He sent an email to the openstack-dev mailing list this morning addressing the pressure his team is under. He also wrote a longer blog post to expand upon that email.

OpenStack Failures

Last week the bulk of the brain power of the OpenStack QA and Infra teams were all in one room, in real life. This was a great opportunity to spend a bunch of time diving deep into the current state of the Gate, figure out what’s going on, and how we might make things better. Sean Dague, Jim Blair, wElizabeth K. Joseph and bmwiedemann wrote a summary of the week.

OpenStack plays Tetris : Stacking and Spreading a full private cloud

DefCore Update: Input Request for Havana Capabilities

As part of our community’s commitment to interoperability, the OpenStack Board of Directors has been working to make sure that “downstream” OpenStack-branded commercial products offer the same baseline functionality and include the same upstream, community-developed code. The work to define these required core capabilities and code has been led by the DefCore Committee co-chaired by Rob Hirschfeld (his DefCore blog) and Joshua McKenty (his post). You can read more about the committee history and rationale in Mark Collier’s blog post. The next deadlines are: OSCON on July 21, 11:30 am PDT and the Board Meeting on July 22nd.

And the K cycle will be named… Kilo !

The results of the poll are just in, and the winner proposal is “Kilo”. “k” is the unit symbol for “kilo”, a SI unit prefix (derived from the Greek word χίλιοι which means “thousand”). “Kilo” is often used as a shorthand for “kilogram”, and the kilogram is the last SI base unit to be tied to a reference artifact (stored near Paris in the Pavillon de Breteuil in Sèvres).

Five Days + Twelve Writers + One Book Sprint = One Excellent Book on OpenStack Architecture

A dozen OpenStack experts and writers from companies across the OpenStack ecosystem gathered at VMware’s Palo Alto campus for the OpenStack Architecture Design Guide book sprint. The intent was to deliver a completed book aimed architects and evaluators, on designing OpenStack clouds — in just five days.

Only developers should file specifications and blueprints

If you try to solve a problem with the wrong tool you’re likely going to have a frustrating experience. OpenStack developers use blueprints define the roadmap for the various projects, the specifications attached to a blueprint are used to discuss the implementation details before code is submitted for review. Operators and users in general don’t need to dive in the details of how OpenStack developers organize their work and definitely should never be asked to use tools designed for and by developers.

Third Party CI group formation and minutes

At this week’s meeting the Third-Party group continues to discuss documentation patches, including a new terminology proposal, as well as CI system naming, logging and test timing. There was also a summary review of the current state of Neutron driver CI rollout. Anyone deploying a third-party test system or interested in easing third-party involvement is welcome to attend the meetings. Minutes of ThirdParty meetings are carefully logged.

OpenStack Swift 2.0 Released and Storage Policies Have Arrived

OpenStack Swift 2.0.0. This release includes storage policies – the culmination of a year of work from many members of the Swift contributor community. Storage policies are the biggest thing to happen in Swift since it was open-sourced four years ago. Storage policies allow you to tailor your storage infrastructure to exactly match your use case. This release marks a significant milestone in the life of the project that will lead to further adoption and community growth. You can get Swift 2.0 from http://tarballs.openstack.org/swift/swift-2.0.0.tar.gz. As always, you can upgrade to this version without any client downtime.

Wrapping up the Travel Support Program – Juno

The OpenStack Foundation brought 21 people to Atlanta for the Summit in May, thanks to the grants offered by the Travel Support Program, sponsored by VMware. The Travel Support Program is based on the promise of Open Design and its aim is to facilitate participation of key contributors to the OpenStack Design Summit. The Travel Support Application for the November Summit in Paris is NOW OPEN! You can apply for the Travel Support Program, including costs for travel and accommodation.

Missing Building Blocks for Enterprise OpenStack: Part 1 – High Availability

In the long term debate of pets vs cattle OpenStack has always been on the side of cattles. Dmitriy Novakovskiy shared his thoughts on why pets are good and how far away OpenStack is from supporting the more ‘legacy’ applications (TL;DR: not too far away).

Third Party CI group formation and minutes

At Juno Summit in Atlanta, Kurt Taylor, Anita Kuno, and Jay Pipes agreed to form a group focused on the Third Party experience, including but not limited to continuous integration. Part of the mission of the group is to focus on the quality of Third Party testing for OpenStack through improving documentation, gathering requirements, and easing the deployment of third party testing systems. The group has been working to improve the consumability of the components and documentation. They’re inviting all people involved in CI testing to join and help make the Third Party experience easier for developers and administrators to understand and deploy. The group holds regular weekly meetings. This week they discussed timelines for Cinder and Neutron testing, requirements for documentation patches, a proposal for system terminology and helped openATTIC solve its issues starting up the CI system.

Kudos Corner

It’s a great pleasure to highlight good examples of first time contributors to OpenStack getting through their first changeset proposal. Jeegn Chen‘s first changeset is one of such cases. Kudos to him and the community helping him fixing bug #1327497.
