A lot of the talk at OpenStack Summit Paris this month centered on the current state of OpenStack and its future. As the four-year-old project continues to grow and mature, what will OpenStack look like in five, 10 or 15 years?
At OpenStack Summit Paris, cloud federation – the ability to easily and seamlessly leverage a multi-cloud environment – was a buzz worthy topic. The story of cloud federation was told though a number of sessions: from Tim Bell from CERN’s keynote presentation to several smaller breakouts. Rackspace and CERN openlab are working together to federate OpenStack clouds. The project has already had a number of successes.
OpenStack Summit Paris is just about over. It was a great week. In case you missed it, here’s a roundup of our coverage from the Paris Summit. We’ll see you in Vancouver in May.
Rackspace kicked off OpenStack Summit Paris with the launch of a set of easy to deploy production-ready application stacks for the OpenStack-powered Rackspace Private Cloud. The free solution templates, which include Magento, Drupal, Galera, MongoDB, ELK Stack and Hortonworks HDP, enable you to launch an application stack on your private cloud in minutes instead of months.
For OpenStack to gain wide adoption, it must be easy to use. It has to be manageable and scalable. It cannot be too complex.
At OpenStack Summit Paris, Neutron networking drew a great deal of attention. From several well-attended presentations to daily book signings; there was a buzz around Neutron throughout the Summit.
Among the OpenStack projects getting the most attention here at the OpenStack Summit Paris is the Neutron networking project.
For more than a year, Rackspace and CERN openlab have been exploring the feasibility of federating OpenStack clouds. Great progress has been made, such as the inclusion of code in OpenStack Icehouse to federate identity in multi-cloud environments.
As more organisations adopt the cloud, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that many will need to use more than one cloud, and in many cases several clouds, to serve the range of workloads they will run.
At the Women of OpenStack working breakfast this week at OpenStack Summit Paris, women got together to share their experiences, support each other and discuss ways to increase the number of women involved in OpenStack. Currently, only about 10 percent of OpenStack Summit attendees are women.
