Mirantis: Evolve or Die: Enterprise Ready OpenStack Upgrades with Kubernetes


We build OpenStack because we know that cloud is the way of the future.  The days of "pets" are fading with every legacy application that gets broken up into containerized microservices.

So why are we still building OpenStack as a monolithic application that's upgraded every six months instead of applying changes and upgrades via CI/CD?

See how we’ve refactored the openstack-salt project to deliver containerized OpenStack services so that you can deploy and upgrade an entire cluster in less than 5 minutes. From seamless upgrades, patching and even rollbacks, discover our take on making OpenStack operationally manageable for the enterprise, coupling best-of-breed open source tooling with OpenStack projects to provide an experience that the enterprise has come to expect.

Learn about:

  • Containerizing OpenStack and OpenContrail SDN
  • Containers in production on Kubernetes with Calico.
  • HA for Kubernetes controllers, MySQL Galera in containers, RabbitMQ, etc.

Be blown away by live demos!
