Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
Come to this session to get an update on Marconi, an OpenStack queuing and notification service described at http://wiki.openstack.org/marconi
Marconi aims to be pragmatic, building upon the real-world experiences of teams who have solid track records running and supporting web-scale message queuing systems.
Join Rackspace's Kurt Griffiths, Principal Architect, and Allan Metts, Engineering Director, to learn about the work that has been done and the path ahead -- including a description of the project, milestones, how it works, and an early demo.
As a message bus, Marconi allows cloud developers to use a REST API to easily distribute tasks to multiple workers across the components of an OpenStack deployment. Publish-subscribe semantics are also supported, allowing notifications to be distributed to multiple listeners at once.
Users will be able to customize Marconi to achieve a wide range of performance, durability, availability, and efficiency goals.
