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!

Icehouse-2 development milestone available

The second milestone of the Icehouse development cycle, “icehouse-2″ is now available for Keystone, Glance, Nova, Horizon, Neutron, Cinder, Ceilometer, Heat, and Trove. Including the oslo libraries, “only” 50 blueprints were implemented and about 650 bugs were fixed during this milestone, which is slightly less than our usual velocity at that point in the cycle. This is mostly due to the recent issues in gating and the end-of-year holiday season. The next development milestone, icehouse-3, is scheduled for March 6th.

Organizing a Gate Blocking Bug Fix Day – Mon Jan 27th

Developers may have noticed issues with our gate and in order to improve the situation Sean Dague proposed a Gate Blocking Bug Fix Day on Jan 27th. All developers are encouraged to focus on fixing bugs on the OpenStack CI infrastructure.

OpenStack Swift as backend for Git

The fine folks at Enovance have written about the advantages of using Swift as backend for Git. In a recent blog post they gave also some details about what happens in Git (server side) when a client pushes or fetches objects. They’ve now shared more operational details on how to handle Swift as a backend to store repositories.

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).

Benchmarking Performance of OpenStack Swift Configurations

The latest OpenStack Object Storage Swift release 1.9.0 features full global clusters support, which allows to distribute one cluster over multiple, geographically dispersed sites, connected through a high-latency network. Mirantis published a brief introduction to how to use benchmarks to take full advantage of the new features.

Hardware Extension for Ceilometer

Ceilometer is a monitoring tool for OpenStack cloud environments. In the next OpenStack release called Havana it will take part as a core component. However, Ceilometer is also available for the OpenStack releases Folsom and Grizzly. Currently Ceilometer offers only data of the OpenStack core components and the virtual machines of the cloud. For this reason the ICCLab decided to extend Ceilometer in a way that it is possible to collect data from hardware devices as well.

An Introduction to OpenStack Orchestration

The forthcoming Havana (2013.2) release of OpenStack will mark the debut of orchestration as part of the official release. It arrives in the form of the Heat project, which kicked off in early 2012 and graduated from incubation into OpenStack-proper after the Havana Summit in March this year.

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.

OpenStack Summit Survey Results

Key Findings:

  • Overall: 96% of people rating the overall Summit as Good or Excellent. 
  • Top areas to improve:  Clearly the Network and the Session Rooms (size, acoustics, equipment) were unacceptable.
  • Format: Stackers favored keeping the Design Summit co-located with the rest of the Summit sessions by a margin of 4:1 over breaking it out separately

An history of OpenStack open source project governance

Over the last 3 years, the technical governance of the OpenStack open source project evolved a lot, and most recently last Tuesday with the Technical Committee decided on a model with 13 directly-elected members, which will be put in place at the Fall 2013 elections. This new model is a direct, representative model, where if you recently authored a change for an OpenStack project, you get one vote, and a chance every 6 months to choose new people to represent you. This model is pretty flexible and should allow for further growth of the project. As far as open source projects governance models go, this is as open, meritocratic, transparent and direct as it gets.

Devstack with Quantum in a multi-node configuration

A blog post by XLcloud shows how to run devstack with Quantum and the Open vSwitch plugin in a multi-node deployment. The OpenStack testbed will be composed of 2 nodes:

  • 1 controller node running Nova (including nova-compute) + Quantum + Glance + Keystone services.
  • 1 compute node running only the nova-compute service + the Quantum agent.

This tutorial has been tested on Ubuntu. It should be quite easy to adapt to other distros but as usual YMMV.

Heat things up with OpenStack — before your competitors do

OpenStack Heat is a (CloudFormation-compatible) template-based system that enables you to specify what should be done, such as performing an action on a number of different servers or spinning up a group of resources (called a stack). The good folks at Mirantis put together a slideshow that explains what it is and gives you an idea of how it works, both now and coming in Havana.
