OpenStack: Why Is It Gaining So Much Traction?

  1. OpenStack: Why Is It Gaining So Much Traction?Kyle Mestery (@mestery)Technical Leader, Office of the Cloud CTO, Cisco© 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 1
  2.  Minnesota OpenStack Meetup  We meet every 4-6 weeks and discuss all things OpenStack Growing community, not limited only to the Twin Cities  Have members from all over the US (CA, MA, NC, TX) and all over the world (China, France, India) We are looking for presenters!  Get in touch with me to schedule your own presentation!
  3.  The audience: • Work for AMD, Best Buy, Cisco, Dell, Enstratius, Huawei, IBM, Kroll Ontrack, Lifetouch, Qlogic, Raytheon BBN, Super Go Faster, Target, UnitedHealth Group, and others • Are OpenStack/DevOps developers, OpenStack deployers, and/or OpenStack newbies
  4.  What is OpenStack? What’s the community like? What’s the software like? Why Is OpenStack Getting So Much Traction?
  5. “OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computingtechnologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computingplatform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliversolutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massivelyscalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series ofinterrelated projects delivering various components for a cloudinfrastructure solution.”--  Basically, it’s software to run cloud services and the community behind that software.
  6.  Founded in July 2010 by Rackspace Hosting, NASA, and partners. • Nasa and Rackspace contributed the beginning code• 7th release (Grizzly) due out in April • OpenStack has a 6-month time-based release cycle• Over 169 companies have now joined the community • OS/Hypervisor makers • Public cloud/service providers • Equipment Vendors • OpenStack Software & Services
  7.  The OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors• Technical Committee• User Committee• More details here.
  8.  IRC Channels and Mailing Lists User/Meetup Groups Social Networking Code on GitHub, Bugs/Milestones in Launchpad Two Annual Design Summit/Conferences (coinciding roughly w/releases) Want to contribute? Start here.
  9.  OpenStack is written primarily in Python Licensed under the Apache Public License 2.0 Has traits typical of cloud OS’s: Can be used to build public, private, or hybrid clouds

  13.  Packaging, distributing, productizing:  Red Hat, Canonical, SuSE, Fedora, Debian, Piston, StackOps, Cloudscaling, SwiftStack, others Services and Training:  Mirantis, Rackspace, Cloudscaling, Grid Dynamics, Hastexo, StackOps, others Deploying:  Rackspace, HP, DreamHost, Cisco, Mercado Libre, Canonical, AT&T, eNovance, San Diego Supercomputer Center, Argonne National Lab, NeCTAR, eBay, Paypal, Comcast, CERN, Intel, Deutsche Telekom, Sina, ISI, many more  User stories:
  14.  Developers can get started fast with DevStack. Most major Linux distributions and some vendors offer packages. Start using an OpenStack-powered public cloud immediately.
  15.  Putting your best foot forward means putting your code where your mouth is.  Ideas are more readily accepted when there’s effort to back them up.
  16.  Don’t be intimidated. • HolycrapthingsmovereallyreallyfastinOpenStack • Jump in feet first: be agile and flexible.

  18. 3 Reasons for OpenStack Momentum
  19.  Whether you’re a developer, deployer, or a user, there’s a place for you in OpenStack Ask a question, get many answers! Have some code, contribute it upstream! Most importantly: Have fun!
  20. You are here
  21.  OpenStack Supports multiple cloud API sets Provides a comfort level about preventing lock-in for your cloud workloads  Perception is reality
  22.  If everyone is offering the same cloud, where is the value for the operator? If everyone offers extensions to the same underlying cloud, does the customer feel the threat of lock-in? Ultimately it’s a level of comfort compared to vendor specific clouds
  23.  Allowed an entire ecosystem of startups to proliferate Allowed enterprise users to dip their toes into this brave new world Opened people’s eyes to Commodity Web Scale Compute …• And Fostered Cloud Computing Envy!
  24. • And most importantly has caused many conversations like this to take place between CxOs and their IT departments
  25. “We are all part of a community muchlarger than each of us individually, allcreating a massively scalable cloudoperating system.” Questions?
