OpenStack on Kubernetes - Lessons Learned

Due to its important number of components, deploying and managing OpenStack is known to be a complex and error-prone process. On the other hand, containers recently introduced consistent deployment capabilities and container management systems brought robust application lifecycle administration at scale.

Therefore, we’ve decided earlier this year to bring the worlds of VMs and containers together by containerizing OpenStack services and managing them using Kubernetes. This effort enables companies to deploy a scalable and self-healing OpenStack platform in less than 5 minutes on top of Kubernetes.

During this session, we will share the experience that we gained during the kubification of OpenStack, demonstrate how this work simplifies and accelerate OpenStack deployments and operations, and describe how what was initially a proof of concept is growing into a production-ready product.

What can I expect to learn?
  • What benefits does using Kubernetes, rkt and Docker provide for managing OpenStack
  • How to deploy OpenStack on top of Kubernetes in less than 5 minutes
  • What did we learn containerizing a complex stateful application such as OpenStack
