How we build and think about servers is constantly evolving.
Five years ago, a small group of 75 developers flocked to Austin, Texas, for the first-ever OpenStack Summit. What began as a low-key gathering has since morphed into an internationally recognized event with a global following.
The API is the foundation of all user interaction with OpenStack. It’s fundamental to the usability of OpenStack as a platform. A well designed and consistent API across all OpenStack projects is necessary, otherwise all of the layers above the API (SDKs, CLIs, Web Apps, Mobile Apps) suffer.
The government of Mexico is headed into the cloud, and it’s counting on OpenStack to take it there.
While previous OpenStack summits have debated the merits and relevance of Barbican, a ReST API designed for the secure storage, provisioning and management of secrets, this week’s summit in Vancouver will reflect its maturity as a bonafide OpenStack project.
Only 4 percent of the universe is known.
With a growing number of OpenStack projects, how do you define what is the minimum set of OpenStack features that should be enabled?
With the 11th release of OpenStack out the door, another OpenStack Summit is underway in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. At this time last year, Icehouse had just been released, and I was heavily involved in researching and testing both the Havana and Icehouse releases as part of putting together Learning OpenStack Networking (Neutron) which was just released last fall.
This weekend, 140 Rackers will be heading out to the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver. We’ll be participating in many different sessions about many different topics.
Rackspace has publicly announced our affiliation with the OpenPOWER Foundation, and we are now an official member. OpenPOWER is a community dedicated to opening access to the lowest-level parts of servers: chips, buses, boards, firmware, and so forth. We anticipate that this movement will bring increased freedom and value to two other communities that we participate in: OpenStack and the Open Compute Project. We think that by working within this new community, Rackspace can deliver improved performance, value, and features for our customers.
