OpenStack and NUMA placement

Nonuniform memory access (NUMA) is a memory architecture that provides different access times depending on which processor is being used. This is a useful feature for improving the performance of virtualized guests. Guests can be optimized to use specific NUMA nodes when provisioning resources. On most modern hardware, one can specify which NUMA nodes a guest can use for virtualization. As an example, by improving performance and reducing latency, the network functions virtualization (NFV) use cases can really take advantage of it. Tiago Rodrigues de Mello wrote a report on the current plans to improve use NUMA placement and asked for comments on his blog.

How do companies do OpenStack?

Yours truly is going around these days asking “how does your company do OpenStack?” to collect best practices and notable mistakes from various leaders of OpenStack’s corporate community. I’m hoping to build a ‘how to’ manual to help managers build better dev teams, more effective at collaborating while shipping products to their customers. This is an effort that goes hand-in-hand with training new developers with Upstream Training and other initiatives aimed at sustaining OpenStack growth. Email me, please, I’d love to hear more stories.
