Abstract

μStack: Open physical infrastructure you can take with you

 

 

 

We’ve all been there. Maybe you’re trying the latest release of OpenStack. Maybe you’re trying out some Neutron code or working on TripleO. Maybe you are simply trying to get some decent performance and DevStack in a VM doesn’t cut it. You need an inexpensive physical lab that you can build yourself. You need…

 

 

μStack


 

μStack (micro stack) is an open-source, multi-node, vendor-independent hardware platform that is:

 

 

·      affordable (about the cost of a nice laptop)

·      portable (about the size of a briefcase)

·      DIY (build one with off the shelf components)

·      flexible (modders welcome!)

 

 

With μStack, you can install a full multi-node OpenStack by whatever means you deem fit. Once up, you have full reign to manipulate it however you want. μStack is your personal hardware playground.

 

 

In this talk, Will Snow and Josh Kleinpeter of Cisco discuss the concept of µStack, show how you can build one, and discuss use cases which allow you to deliver OpenStack to users more effectively by distributing mini-labs to individual engineers.

 

 

Most of all, we’d like to get input from others and help them contribute to this project. µStack is a means for the entire community to work together on a hardware platform that can enable you to deliver OpenStack more efficiently.

 

 

We will be releasing the specifications for µStack on github.com by the Vancouver summit and will be accepting pull requests to help improve and add to this community platform.

 

Lets make µStack a reality!

 

 

 

 

 

Josh Kleinpeter Software Development Manager, Cisco Systems

Josh is a long time software developer ripped into the world of cloud and pointy haired management. Before Cisco, he helped bring OpenStack to AT&T. He likes puppies and long walks on the beach. As long as there is wifi.

William Snow Director, Platform and Customer Engineering

Will has significant experience in software engineering, with a huge interest in hardware as evidenced by his desk which at any one point in time can be found to have a soldering iron, disk drives, and/or partially dismantled computers. Oh, and ponies.
