Defining OpenStack “Core”

Quite a lot of debates online and not around the DefCore initiative, triggered by a message by Thierry Carrez with comments from Mark McLoughlin, Nick Barcet, Troy Toman, Dan Wendlandt, Mark Collier, Tim Bell, Eric Windisch, Boris Renski, Pete Chadwik, Randy Bias, and others.

StoryBoard sprint in Brussels

StoryBoard is a project Thierry Carrez started a few months ago. Quite a few people in OpenStack have been running into a number of issues with Launchpad (inability to have blueprints spanning multiple code bases, inability to have flexible project group views, inability to use non-Launchpad OpenID for login…), and were investigating replacements. Tired of explaining why existing alternatives wouldn’t work for OpenStack task management, Thierry ended up writing a proof-of-concept to show a practical example. That proof-of-concept was sufficiently compelling that the Infrastructure team decided we should write our own tool.

OpenStack 2014: Powered by Users

If momentum is any indication, 2014 is poised to be a defining year for OpenStack. All of our vital statistics, from community growth to code commits and tracked deployments, doubled in 2013, and all signs point to continued growth. As we start a new year, we in the OpenStack Foundation are putting our resources behind elevating the voice of OpenStack users and tightening the feedback loop between users and developers to influence decisions such as the scope of the project, new feature priorities, interoperability requirements and operational best practices.

New Foundation Gold Members & Sponsors

The OpenStack Foundation is thrilled to have new additions to our ecosystem. Three new Gold Members and 18 Corporate Sponsors have recently joined the incredible list of companies who are supporting the Foundation and driving innovation on the platform.  AptiraHuawei and Hitachi won the OpenStack Board’s approval at the November board meeting and joined the Foundation as Gold members, which requires a strong, strategic commitment to the technology and community. We’ve also seen amazing support in Corporate Sponsorship and we want to share the impressive list of recent additions.

OpenStack Commitment to Interoperability

Now that OpenStack has tons of users, we need to make sure all (downstream) products labeled “OpenStack” have a certain set of core capabilities, and we need to verify those with automated tests just like we do upstream.  End-users should be our focus, and ensuring they get what they want and expect out of the platform once it’s running as a service is paramount.  The goal is to define the first set of tests in time for the May 2014 Summit in Atlanta. If this matters to you, get involved!

Maturing the Horizon Overview Page Part 1 and Part 2

What Is VMware Up To With OpenStack?

As a former vSphere and now OpenStack Architect, Kenneth Hui has been following with much interest the courtship ritual that VMware has been performing with the OpenStack project.  Dan Wendlandt and the entire OpenStack Team at VMware has been busy courting the OpenStack community at various venues, including the recent OpenStack Summit.  For the Grizzly release, VMware began contributing code to integrate vSphere with OpenStack; the code contribution has steadily increased both in quantity and in scope moving into Havana and continuing into the upcoming Icehouse release. His views are based on his experience working with VMware and their products and observing their involvement in the OpenStack community (he doesn’t work at Vmware nor has any special inside knowledge).

OpenStack Project Update Webinars

To allow for broader participation, we’ve scheduled post-Summit webinars with the Project Team Leads (PTLs) to provide the latest project updates rather than schedule these tracks during the Summit. Next scheduled events:

Wrapping up the OpenStack Travel Support Program – Icehouse

The OpenStack Foundation brought 18 people to Hong Kong thanks to the grants offered by the first edition of the Travel Support Program, sponsored by Intel. 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 program aims at covering costs for travel and accommodation for key contributors to the OpenStack project to join the community at the Summits.

Adopt an operator?

Lorin Hochstein made what he calls “a modest proposal”: a program to pair up individual OpenStack developers with OpenStack operators to encourage better information flow from ops to devs. Sounds intriguing, it may be a way to try tightening the gap between developers and users of OpenStack. Another proposal trying to address the same issue was sent to the User Committee mailing list. What do you think?

Vmware Workstation / Fusion / Player Nova driver

The fine folks at Cloudbase are heavily using VMware Workstation and Fusion for development, demos and PoCs. They have replaced their automation scripts with a fully functional Nova driver and use OpenStack APIs and Heat for the automation. They published the results of their work as a Nova driver on github.com.

Spinning up OpenStack “DefCore” Committee by spotting elephants

This week, Joshua McKenty, Rob Hirschfeld and a handful of interested individuals (board member Eileen Evans included) met to start organizing the DefCore* Committee. This standing committee was established by an OpenStack Foundation resolution just before the Hong Kong Summit. This action was an immediate result of the unanimous passage of the 10 Principles that Rob was driving in the DefCore “Spider” cycle. Read the summary of the outcomes of the first meeting.

How to get new questions on Ask OpenStack via email

Email is still one of the best mechanism to get push notifications, so getting automatic nudges via email from Ask OpenStack is useful. I took some time to document how to get an email message every time a new question is asked on Ask OpenStack.

Who Wrote OpenStack Havana Docs?

Indulging with our own Anne Gentl in the glorious beauty of numbers and metrics, following up on a similar post about previous release, Who Wrote OpenStack Grizzly Docs? At the time Grizzly had 79 docs contributors overall, with 3 of them writing half of the changes for Grizzly. This time the team grew to 130 docs contributors with 7 of them writing just over half the changes in overarching install/config/deploy/operations guides. Progress! We also had at least three supporting companies hire writers dedicated to OpenStack upstream docs.

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
