When you have developed your application against an OpenStack and want to move to another cloud, you want to find out how compatible it is? If you are using a tool to manage your application landscape in one cloud, how do you get an idea of the compatibility of an OpenStack cloud with this tool?
The answer is Tempest and RefStack.
RefStack has traditionally been used to collect results from tempest runs and compare against the OpenStack Powered (fka Defcore) guidelines. This is great and ensures a base level of interoperability between the passing cloud implementations.
RefStack has planned to support custom guidelines recently. This allows you to create guidelines that match the needs of your application or tool -- use it to find out whether a cloud is suitable for you.
The presentation will give you an overview how to develop guidelines and use RefStack custom guidelines to give you the answers. We will look at some real world examples and discuss benefits and todos.
Attendees will see RefStack custom guidelines applied in practice and learn about the possibilites and limitations to use them to determine application and or tooling compatibility.
They will develop an understanding of how custom guidelines look like and should be defined.
