Placement, Present and Future, in Nova and Beyond

Join us for an update on the Placement API and its consumption by the Nova scheduler.  We'll cover:

  • A brief overview of what Placement is (and is not).
  • What got accomplished in Queens (and what did not).
  • What we're working on in Rocky (and... yeah, you get it).
  • Future direction (no promises).

Intended audience is devs and ops.

Software Engineer, POWER Systems
Mr. Fried (rhymes with "bleed") entered OpenStack in the Liberty/Mitaka timeframe working on the PowerVM compute driver.  Since his first Nova commit in Newton, his focus has gradually become nearly 100% upstream.  Contributions in the Pike and Queens timeframe have spanned several projects, but have lately been focused primarily on the Placement API and its consumption by Nova.

Ed is a long-time developer, and has been working in Python for the last 15 years or so. He was fortunate enough to be part of the team at Rackspace that started OpenStack, and has continued to work on both the OpenStack code base as well as a Python SDK for OpenStack. His current focus is the Placement service for scheduling resources. FULL PROFILE
