Participate in the OpenStack User Survey by September 30!

We’re kicking off the second round of the OpenStack User Survey this month! You may remember before the April Summit we helped the User Committee run a survey to aggregate OpenStack deployments and share the results.

OpenStack Docs Boot Camp Wrap Up

We gathered about 20 writers and developers who wanted to learn about OpenStack documentation in the Mirantis training room for two days this week in Mountain View, California. The idea for a docs boot camp came from the OpenStack Infrastructure team who held one back in June. We wanted to enable more people to contribute to OpenStack documentation through in-person training and team building. It’s not like a book sprint, with the goal of a book in five days, but rather a training session, with questions and answers in real time. Read the full report from Anne Gentle.

OpenStack Heat and Ceilometer got their dashboard panel

The Havana milestone release of the Horizon dashboard brought an absolutely wonderful panel for Heat, the orchestration service and Ceilometer, the metering service. Enjoy a preview before the Havana’s official release.

OpenStack Icehouse Incubation Roundup

The OpenStack Technical Committee met this week to consider the status of incubated projects for the upcoming Icehouse cycle. As a result, database provisioning (codename Trove) will be an official part of the Icehouse (2014.1) release, while message queues (codename Marconi) and bare-metal server provisioning (codename Ironic) will be in incubation with a view to becoming official in the as-yet-unnamed J (2014.2) release.

Bringing Go To The Cloud With The Gophercloud SDK

Go is a rapidly emerging programming language created out of Google by Rob Pike and Ken Thompson. Rackspace is investing in Go by creating a multi-cloud software development kit (SDK) for the Go programming community called Gophercloud. It will support OpenStack first, Rackspace Cloud second.

Scaling the OpenStack Test Environment

A year ago James Blair introduced Zuul, a program he developed to drive the OpenStack project’s gating system. In short, each change to an OpenStack project must pass unit and integration tests before it is merged. Over the past year, the OpenStack project has grown tremendously, with 62 git repositories related to OpenStack, 30 for the project infrastructure, and an additional 75 unofficial projects that share the same testing infrastructure. In all, the development infrastructure currently serves 167 repositories. They run up to 720 test jobs per hour, and our dynamic provisioning system has pushed our test node count up to 328 nodes online and running tests simultaneously. Over the past year, the OpenStack Infra team made a large number of changes to prepare for this load. This blog post by jeblair has some of the key innovations that help us test at scale.

Ambassador Program – Specifics

Following from the previous post, we’ve had a range of people express their support for the program and quite a number already looking for the application form! So, some more details about the Ambassador Program. Ambassadors will be recognised on the OpenStack website for their efforts, and provided with support from foundation staff to conduct their duties. They will also get access to a funding program – allowing them to request funds for activities of impact in their region. We’d also expect ambassadors to attend the summits, and the Foundation would likely assist if it wasn’t possible for them to be there using their own methods.

How Heat Orchestrates your OpenStack Resources

One of the great things about orchestration is that it automatically figures out the operations it needs to perform. So whenever you deploy (or modify) your infrastructure you need not write a script to do so; you simply describe the infrastructure you want and the orchestration engine does the rest. Zane Bitter describes how this works in Heat.

Autoscaling with Heat and Ceilometer

Like AWS CloudFormation, Heat allows to create auto scaling stacks. In order to do this, some metrics need to be retrieved from your VM and some actions need to be triggered when a specified event occurs on these metrics. These actions are usually upscaling (create some new VMs) or downscaling (destroy some Vms). Starting with the Havana version (currently trunk), Ceilometer can now trigger actions when something happens to these metrics by creating alarms. The Heat agent inside the VM is no more needed.

Taking OpenStack Core discussions to community

We’ve been building up to a broad discussion about the OpenStack Core and I’d like to invite everyone in the OpenStack community to participate (review latest). Alan Clark (Board Chairman) officially kicked off this open discussion with his post on the OpenStack blog last week.  And we’re trying to have face-to-face events for dialog like the Core meetup tonight in San Francisco.  Look for more to come! Of course, this will also be a topic at the summit. The Board needs to move this forward in the November meeting, so NOW is the time to review and give us input.

OpenStack Swift & many small files

Spil Games has been running Swift for more than two years now, hosting over 400 million files with an average file size of about 50 KB per object. They have a replica count of three so there are1.2 billion files to be stored on the object servers. Generally speaking, Swift has turned out to be a solid object storage system. They however run into some performance issues and in a blog post they describe how they analyzed and solved them.

Introducing the OpenStack Ambassador Program

OpenStack Community Manager Tom Fifield started the discussion on the formation of an OpenStack Ambassador Program, which aims to create a framework of community leaders to sustainably expand the reach of OpenStack around the world. We would like to recognize and further empower these community members to achieve the OpenStack mission, as well as provide more structure and resources to the growing community and user groups. Your feedback would be excellent! For more specifics on the program, and information about becoming an ambassador, stay tuned for the next post.

Managing identities in the cloud

CERN has 11,000 physicists who use the lab’s facilities including the central IT department resources. As with any research environment, there are many students, PhDs and other project members who join one of the experiments at CERN. They need to have computing accounts to access CERN’s cloud but we also need to make sure these resources are handled correctly when they are no longer affiliated with the organisation.

Why OpenStack Puppet modules did not have vacation

A lot of work has been done on Puppet modules lately. There is no doubt to say that puppet modules are designed for high-quality and best-practices configurations around an important community who takes care of those concepts.

Yet another way to monitor OpenStack

Emilien Macchi decided to write some useful scripts to check if every OpenStack service are running. He was not fully satisfied with current methods because he feels they lack some deepness.

refined: 10 OpenStack Core Positions

OpenStack Foundation Board member Rob Hirschfeld keeps iterating looking for a proposal to define “what is core” in the context of OpenStack. This is a must-read for anybody interested in joining the meeting in San Francisco on Aug 27.

OpenStack’s Test Driven Core

In helping drive OpenStack’s “what is core” dialog, board member Rob Hirschfeld has reported a lot of viewpoints about what OpenStack is and what it should be. As a good steward of this process he has successfully managed to be an objective listener.  In the recent post in the series, he expresses his point of view. This is one of the most important conversations for the OpenStack Foundation and it’s happening now.

Flavors – An English perspective

OpenStack has the capability to define flavors of virtual machines, how many cores, swap, disk and memory. As a native UK English speaker, Tim Bell finds the term flavor to already be a problem. In his post describing how flavors are used at CERN he appeals to the OpenStack technical committee to not accept any term which is not the same in US and UK English or to allow an alias. His post has lots of other interesting information, too.

Non-Relational Database-as-a-Service in OpenStack

The OpenStack Technical Committee voted this week to expand the scope of the Trove program, which is currently in incubation, to encompass non-relational as well as relational databases.

What is OpenStack Core?

OpenStack Foundation board member Rob Hirschfeld posted a series of short essays to spark a discussion around defining OpenStack Core. His latest post Twelve straw man positions to frame OpenStack “what is core” discussion moves to the ‘What’ is core from the how andwhy.  The twelve positions have been crafted over the course of several weeks and are constantly evolving. Next steps are to expand discussions to the OpenStack Community for input and review at the next Board Meeting on August 6th.   Ultimately, we need to close this issue at the next Summit.

To the first OpenStack Documentation BootCamp

The OpenStack Docs Bootcamp offers a deep dive into the technical tools, workflows, and processes we use to create docs.openstack.org and api.openstack.org. Our goal is to give enough information that will create sustaining new core members of OpenStack Documentation. You can register to attend through this form. More details on the OpenStack wiki.

OpenStack Hits a Triple with OpenStack on OpenStack

On the 16th July the OpenStack Technical Committee voted to make OpenStack Deployment an official OpenStack Program. Our mission is to “Develop and maintain tooling and infrastructure able to deploy OpenStack in production, using OpenStack itself wherever possible.” For the latest code and documentation visit our incubator repository at https://github.com/openstack/tripleo-incubator. OpenStack Deployment (TripleO) was started by HP as part of our active contribution to OpenStack, in order to fill in core gaps in delivering OpenStack to users.

Openstack General List Migration

Update your filters: starting from now the OpenStack General list openstack@lists.launchpad.net has become openstack@lists.openstack.org. We have almost completed the move of all OpenStack mailing lists to our mailman installation on http://lists.openstack.org. There are some known issues still to be removed, though. Please bear with us while we fix them. Thanks to Paul Hummer and the whole Launchpad team at Canonical for making this migration happen.

OpenStack Celebrates Three Years!

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!

A Vision for Keystone

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.

Glance Registry Driver

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.

The Travel Support Program is based on the promise of Open Design, one of the founding principles upon which the OpenStack project is built.

Blow Out the Candles – OpenStack Turns 3!

OpenStack will celebrate it’s third birthday July 19, and we’re celebrating this month!  In three short years, Openstack has truly emerged as the center of cloud innovation, with hundreds of companies around the world relying on OpenStack to run their business. OpenStack is maturing, it’s coming of age and new users being announced every week (Fidelity, Comcast, Best Buy, Bloomberg). Over the past three years, we’ve also seen OpenStack grow internationally. There are now over 40 global user groups and more than 10,000 community members across 121 countries. And we’ve recently crossed the 1,000 authors threshold to the code base.  This calls for a big toast to the OpenStack community!

A tool for watching Zuul and Jenkins

Dan Smith wrote a very hacky text “dashboard” that merges the information from Gerrit and Zuul, and provides a periodically-refreshed view of what is going on. The tool is useful to keep close watch of patches, both to know when they’re close to merging, as well as to know early when they’re failing a test. Catching something early and pushing a fix will kill the job currently in progress and start over with the new patch. This is a more efficient use of resources and lowers the total amount of time before Jenkins will vote on the patch in such a case.

Save Space: the final frontier – Erasure Codes with OpenStack Swift

The Swift team announced an initiative to introduce erasure codes in OpenStack Swift. This initiative enables deployers to store data with erasure coding instead of or in addition to Swift’s 3-replica model.
