Today the OpenStack 2014.1.3 stable Icehouse release has been announced. We’re currently testing and developing on version 2014.1.2 and will upgrade as soon as we’ve determined the changes and possible impact to our environments.
Our production installation has remained stable for the last couple of weeks in which even a hardware disruption didn’t result in any impact to services. We’ve made a lot of progress with our automation tool for rolling out OTA environments and made structural changes to the use and handling of API’s.
Our DevOps team is developing the required configuration and messaging functions to grant tenants public access to the API. These services are running on the internal management VLAN and will be made externally available through a reverse proxy configuration. We still have some technical challenges to overcome there, but we’re making good progress.
