As OpenStack Summit Atlanta fast approaches, we wanted to dig deeper into the past, present and future of OpenStack. In this video series, we hear straight from some of OpenStack’s top contributors from Rackspace about how the fast-growing open source project has evolved, what it needs to continue thriving, what it means to them personally, and why they are active contributors.

In a recent webinar, we showcased “Using DevOps Tools to Achieve Continuous Integration.” A full recording of that webinar and the presentation slides are available now.
At DeveloperWeek Conference & Festival 2014, Rackspace Director of Training and Education Tony Campbell showcased how to develop on OpenStack. In his keynote presentation, “Developing On OpenStack,” Campbell introduced OpenStack the open source cloud platform co-founded by Rackspace in 2010, which has quickly become one of the fastest growing open source projects in history. OpenStack now boasts more than 13,000 individuals from 132 countries.
For the last several weeks I’ve been explaining the setup of my home Rackspace Private Cloud and OpenStack lab. From the basic hardware configuration and adding compute nodes to adding high availability and using Neutron networking.
Over the past few months we have been working hard to provide more automation capabilities for the Rackspace Cloud. In November we told you about Auto Scale, which allows you to define rules to grow or shrink your cloud. Back in August we told you about Deployments, a Control Panel capability that allows you to deploy common applications with a point-and-click interface and based on our best practices.
For the fast-growing Internet-centric and SaaS applications that you deploy weekly or even daily, you need specialized DevOps engineers who can look beyond servers to help you build the most agile and scalable platform possible.
Getting an application designed, tested and running, then updating and improving it is no easy task — even in the best of times. There is a continuing quest for tooling that delivers automation of this work to allow more focus on what matters most: fast, efficient development. This automation is increasingly sought via a platform service layer that abstracts the compute, networking and storage details of the infrastructure service layer — offering simplification for application developers and the cloud operators who support them.
Adding Extra Compute Nodes to Rackspace Private Cloud
You are pouring a sizeable portion of your life into building a world-class product. Amid the stress and passion of building out new features and fixes, it is important to also develop the discipline of automated testing and configuration management. Here’s why:
