Take the OpenStack User Survey and Change the (OpenStack) World

Still a few more hours to fill in the OpenStack User Survey.

Heartbleed

The bug discovered affecting OpenSSL and “breaking” internet doesn’t directly touch OpenStack but can lead to OpenStack compromise. The width of the problem discovered this week is extremely wide though and I think it’s worth spending some more time learning about it. Mark McLoughlin has collected an impressive amount of links where you can learn more.

Security auditing of OpenStack releases

Nathan Kinder started a conversation about how to deal with high-level security related questions about OpenStack.

How to govern a project on the scale of OpenStack

How an open source project is governed can matter just as much as the features it supports, the speed at which it runs, or the code that underlies it. Some open source projects have what I call a “benevolent dictator for life.” Others are outgrowths of corporate projects that, while open, still have their goals and code led by the company that manages it. And of course, there are thousands of projects out there that are written and managed by a single person or a small group of people for whom governance is less of an issue than insuring project sustainability.

Introducing the OpenStack SDK for PHP

Marrying OpenStack with one of the most popular programming languages on the planet. Write applications to interact with OpenStack public and private clouds, using the APIs. The OpenStack SDK for PHP is meant to be by the community and for the community. It will be able to work with clouds from a variety of vendors or vanilla OpenStack setups.

Tearing down obstacles to OpenStack documentation contributions

Rip. Shred. Tear. Let’s gather up the obstacles to documentation contribution and tear them down one by one. I’ve designed a survey with the help of the OpenStack docs team to determine blockers for docs contributions. If you’ve contributed to OpenStack, please fill it out.

Participate in the OpenStack User Survey by April 11!

We’re kicking off the third round of the OpenStack User Survey this month! If you are an OpenStack user or have customers with OpenStack deployments, please take a few minutes to respond to our User Survey and pass it along to your network. The goals of the survey are to better define the OpenStack user community and requirements, facilitate engagement and communication among the user community, and uncover new use cases or OpenStack users who might be willing to tell their stories publicly.

OpenStack Summit – now with more Ops

A new addition to the busy times in Atlanta: people who run clouds have a place to congregate at the Summit and swap best practices, architectures, ideas and give feedback. The Ops Meetup will be the place for sessions designed to be full-room discussions: there will be no presenters and salient notes will be collaboratively recorded on Etherpads, just like in the Design Summit. Register for the OpenStack Summit, then turn up Monday and Friday to room B308 in Atlanta.

Call for Proposals Open Source @ OpenStack Summit

At this year’s OpenStack Summit we’re going to be offering space to Open Source projects that are important to the OpenStack community. We’re calling it Open Source @ OpenStack, and it’s an opportunity for these projects to hold small design summits with their community members. We’re impressed by the number of projects that have grown in the OpenStack ecosystem, and want to continue the practice we started with StackForge of fostering these projects. We have space and time available for half day sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, both morning and afternoon. If you have a project that you think qualifies for this space, we invite you to submit a proposal for Open Source @ OpenStack.

Upcoming changes to Design Summit format

Since the very beginning of OpenStack we fulfilled our Open Design promise by organizing a developer gathering open to all OpenStack contributors at the beginning of all our development cycles, called the Design Summit. Those events have proven to be an essential part of OpenStack success and growth. Lots of things are changing for the Atlanta “Juno” Summit: staggering conference and Design Summit, no more unconference but “Other Projects” dedicated track, more coordination with cross project discussions. Read the details, do it now.

OpenStack 2013.1.5 released

The list of bugs, tarballs and other milestone information for each project can be found on Launchpad.

I need some data from the OpenStack user group leaders

OpenStack Ambassadors are compiling user group data. To better track how we’re doing worldwide.

An Icehouse Sneak Peek – OpenStack Compute (Nova)

It seems like it was only yesterday that the OpenStack community found itself gathering in Hong Kong to set the design goals for the Icehouse release. As we entered March development was still progressing at a fever pitch in the lead up to the feature freeze for the release but now the dust has started to settle and we are able to start getting a real feel for what OpenStack users and operators can look forward to in the Icehouse release.

Why you should be reviewing more OpenStack code

Icehouse 3 is upon us, and as someone that is on a bunch of core review teams, it means a steady drum beat of everyone asking how do they get core reviewers to review their code. Sean Dague explains quite well why you should be doing code reviews.

Trusted Cloud computing with Intel TXT: The challenge

In today’s connected environments, attacks on compute infrastructure are ubiquitous. Major players have been compromised by hackers and malware, with damages inflicted both to their reputation and their business. Protecting the infrastructure from external and internal threats is an important part of operating production grade cloud environments. Christian Huebner introduces how OpenStack integrates with TXT.

Our Cloud in Havana

Upgrading a nearly 50,000 core cloud from Grizzly to Havana can be done with a series of steps, each of which can have short periods of reduced functionality but with constant VM availability. Tim Bell tells us how CERN upgraded its OpenStack cloud.

Status of the OpenStack port to Python 3

Python 3 has been around for about 5 years, and we have excellent reasons to make sure OpenStack runs well on it. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In his article, Cyril Roelandt explains what works, what doesn’t, and what you can do to help.
