OpenStack Project Status November

OpenStack Project Status November

Last month has been a busy and fruitful month. We last mentioned that our internal beta test had started and that our team visited the OpenStack Summit in Paris. For the first time, the twice-yearly OpenStack Summit took place in Europe and attracted about 6000 participants, making it the largest summit to date. It’s an indication of the momentum that OpenStack is currently experiencing. We were impressed by the amount of people that attended and the level of both professionalism and enthusiasm of the community.
OpenStack announces new stable release Icehouse

OpenStack announces new stable release Icehouse

Today the OpenStack 2014.1.3stable 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.
Using Razor and Puppet to roll out different development environments

Using Razor and Puppet to roll out different development environments

Last week, several configurations have been created in Razor and Puppet to roll out different development environments with specific settings. These environments are using virtual Arista switches in order to resemble eventual production as closely as possible. Among other things, during the OpenStack meetup in Amsterdam on Wednesday 3 September, we’ve been given tips on how to improve performance of the erasure coded Ceph storage, which we’re intending to try out and possibly use.
Producing the first graphs

Producing the first graphs

This week, focus for testing shifted mostly towards failover and recovery mechanisms and live migration of instances. Calamari, the reporting and management platform for Ceph, is producing the first graphs on usage and availability as well. Our colleagues are receiving fully virtualized test instances of the platform for them to use for providing feedback on stability, ease of use and performance. Other environments have been created for developing and testing of the APIs for the different teams within the project.
