Magnum or Murano? OpenStack Options for Container Environment Creation and Management

OpenStack users who want to create and manage container environments (e.g., Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, Apache Mesos, etc.) can do so with methods native to each solution’s ecology. They can explore OpenStack Magnum’s API, which enables creation of Kubernetes, Swarm or Mesos environments, plus abstract management of container workloads. Or they can use Murano, the application catalog, which deploys Kubernetes clusters, pods, and container applications with Wizard ease.

Which to choose? This session will describe:

  • Magnum and Murano: Intentions, features, workflow
  • Trade-offs in control vs. convenience, and their significance

...And discuss the state of current work aimed at making Magnum deployable and callable by Murano, making Magnum more accessible to less-technical users, and broadening the suite of container solutions Murano can catalog and deploy. Attendees will leave this session with better understanding of options for container-environment deployment within OpenStack.


What can I expect to learn?
  • Magnum and Murano: Intentions, features, workflow
  • Trade-offs in control vs. convenience, and their significance
  • Magnum and Murano interoperability: status and plans
  • Demo: Deploying Kubernetes cluster with each platform
