This deck begins with a high-level overview of where OpenStack Compute (Nova) fits into the overall OpenStack architecture, as demonstrated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. Before illustrating how OpenStack Compute interacts with other OpenStack components.
The session will also provide a grounding in some common Compute terminology and a deep-dive look into key areas of OpenStack Compute, including the:
Compute Instance lifecycle.
Intertwined with the architectural information are details on horizontally scaling and dividing compute resources as well as customization of the Compute scheduler. You’ll also learn valuable insights into key OpenStack Compute features present in OpenStack Icehouse.
