OpenStack Roadmap


How the OpenStack Design & Development Process Works

OpenStack is committed to an open design and development process. The community operates around a six-month, time-based release cycle with frequent development milestones. During the planning phase of each release, the community gathers for a Design Summit to facilitate live developer working sessions and assemble the roadmap. The upcoming Design Summit and release schedule follows:

  • October 16 2014: Juno Software Release
  • November 3-7, 2014: Kilo Release Design Summit
  • April 2015: Kilo Software Release

New Capabilities in OpenStack Juno

  • Data Processing (Sahara): automates provisioning and management of big data clusters using Hadoop and Spark.
    • Big data analytics are a priority for many organizations and a popular use case for OpenStack, and this service lets OpenStack users provision needed resources more quickly.

Detailed Release Information

Because our design and development is done in the open, we have public documentation available regarding the development status of the current release and decisions made at each Design Summit. You have the opportunity to review this information in technical detail at the following links:
