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.
OpenStack Summit Paris is the fourth OpenStack Summit for me (I’ve had the pleasure of being on stage for three of them, most recently announcing the first ever OpenStack Superuser Award).
At OpenStack Summit Paris this week a lot of the talk was around new features in Juno, the tenth OpenStack release. Rackers Alan Bush and Drew Cox were able to catch up with Rackspace Principal Architects Kevin Jackson and Justin Shepherd for a live Google Hangout to dig into what’s new and exciting in Juno and other insights from OpenStack Summit.
OpenStack Summit Paris marks the first Summit in Europe, and thousands of attendees – many of them Summit first timers – gathered to talk all things OpenStack.
I was a QE on the Rackspace Auto Scale team. I would like to take you through the experiences and learnings I have had with testing Auto Scale, and how the ability to test it improved drastically using Mimic, an API-compatible mock service for Identity, OpenStack Compute and Load Balancers.
In the technology industry, there is always disruption. That was one of the many messages OpenStack Foundation Executive Director Jonathan Bryce hammered home in front of a capacity crowd Monday during his keynote to kickoff OpenStack Summit Paris.
OpenStack is growing. Just looking around at the OpenStack Summit Paris, it’s exciting to see how far it’s come in just four years. It’s being used in production at many large enterprises and was recently named the most important open source project in the cloud. It was great to see Jim Zemlin from the Linux Foundation on the Summit keynote stage this morning. The size of the Summit and excitement around OpenStack are reminiscent of Linux conferences in the early 2000s – it’s a project that’s still developing, but on track to dominate.
