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?
Providing users with programmatic control of their infrastructure has always been one of the primary value propositions of the Rackspace Cloud. The ability to deploy and manage a wide array of cloud resources with a few lines of code has brought new levels of automated efficiency to the IT industry and revolutionized how we think about managing our applications and workloads.
Forrester Research, Inc. has named Rackspace Private Cloud (RPC) a “strong performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Hosted Private Cloud Solutions, Q4 2014. We believe that this rating is great recognition of the momentum we’re seeing with our OpenStack-powered private cloud solution.
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.
