Running with scissors > DefCore “must-pass” Road Show Starts [VIDEOS]

The OpenStack DefCore committee has been very active during this cycle turning the core definition principles into an actual list of “must-pass” capabilities (working page).  This in turn gives the community something tangible enough to review and evaluate.

My take on OpenStack proects, Congress, part 1 of 10

Sean Roberts started a series of posts about OpenStack projects that he thinks are critical and risk of getting lost in the noise.

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.

OpenStack Upstream Training in Atlanta

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 Atlanta, May 10-11. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit.

Why we do Feature freeze

OpenStack Release Manager Thierry Carrez explains why OpenStack project does something so ‘anti-agile’ as feature freeze weeks before the release.

The Intersection of the OpenStack and Python Communities

OpenStack reached the considerable size of 1.3 million lines of code, mostly python. Oslo PTL Doug Hellmann shares his thoughts on how to keep OpenStack complexity manageable.

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 [email protected] has become [email protected]. 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.
