A de facto guide to the scaling models, capabilities and limits of all OpenStack components. I will cover all core projects, their components and the limitations of each. In general, OpenStack scaling models fit into three categories: vertically scalable, horizontally scalable or sharded, which is a special case of horizontally scalable. Along with this overview I will take the opportunity to review structural details, future plans and past mistakes. Q&A should be a large part of this presentation. Please attend with lots of questions to ask.
What does and does not scale in OpenStack. What is being done to fix it. Pitfalls you can avoid.
