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.
Using Razor and Puppet to roll out different development environments
Several users have continued last week’s trying out of our SSD-equipped test environments. In addition, more progress has been made towards the look and feel and future construction of the website and online community. Amongst other things, design sketches and icons have been made for users and components.
