Summit Revisted: Why Hyper-V? One of the founding principles of OpenStack was Hypervisor Ubiquity Allows enterprises to utilize existing infrastructure, tools, and in-house expertise they already have. Customer and partner demand is there It provides an enterprise OS running a private cloud that is interoperable and expandable into public cloud spaces Allows for potential System Center Integration points
What we’ve been working on? Python32 based service Start/Stop VMs Initial Glance integration Resize/Rescue/Pause/Suspend Resume/Host- Guest Info Reporting coming soon Silent installer Installation instructions Jenkins infrastructure and CI Testing Test integration planning Ongoing feature planning for Folsom and beyond.
Improving for Folsom Additional VM functions Live Migrations Volume support Snapshots Support Nova-network on Hyper-V compute node Non-flat Networking image conversion And more…
Windows Server “2012” is coming…Lots of additional opportunities to add and improve for Folsom!
Let’s Recap This is officially a Microsoft sponsored Project!! Dedicated MS staff to support OpenStack/Hyper-V efforts Dedicated Hardware/Network resources Initial set of features improved over previous Hyper-V functionality CI build out begining Test integration planning finalizing.
