  • OpenStack Havana Release

    1. 1. OpenStack Havana Release October 17, 2013
    2. 2. OpenStack Havana If software development, managing data or running application infrastructure is strategic to your business, OpenStack is the platform that will accelerate time to value 2
    3. 3. OpenStack Cloud Platform 3
    4. 4. OpenStack Havana Technology Themes New App-Driven Capabilities Improved Operational Experience More Enterprise Features 4 • Orchestration templates • Global clusters for Object Storage • QoS across Block Storage drivers to guarantee app performance • Improved UI with more functionality exposed in the Dashboard • Continued support for additional plugins • Metering usage statistics • All APIs support SSL and encryption • VPN and Firewall-as-a-service • Boot from volume, foundation for live migration • Support for rolling upgrades
    5. 5. New Projects in OpenStack Havana Two projects were Incubated in the Grizzly release cycle and are now Integrated with the Havana release: Metering & Monitoring (Ceilometer) • • Central collection of metering/monitoring data Example: collect usage information for billing systems, determine which workloads are heavy consumers Orchestration (Heat) • • 5 Template-based orchestration engine for OpenStack Example: developers define application deployment patterns that specify all of the infrastructure resources an app needs
    6. 6. Key Themes Across the Community More Contributions Directly from Users • Users want to contribute their changes so they can stay on the main codebase • Bluehost, CERN, Comcast, Intel IT, NeCTAR, PayPal, Shutterstock, Workday Documentation, Training & Education • OpenStack Operations & Security Guides • New training marketplace, community efforts to build content Rapid Deployment of Updates • In latest survey data, 55% of deployments reported running code from Grizzly or later • Continuous deployment (i.e. “running trunk”) in growing number of organizations 6
    7. 7. Key Growth Stats 910 contributors to Havana; a more than 70% increase Developer Growth from Grizzly release Canonical, Dreamhost, eNovance, HP, IBM, Intel, Top Contributors Mirantis, OpenStack Foundation, Rackspace, Red Hat, by Employer SUSE, Yahoo! Total Number of Approximately 392 new features; 32% increase in the total lines of code from April to September Features Patches Merged Over 20,000 commits merged during Havana cycle Testing 7 On average, deploying an OpenStack cloud for testing 700 times per day
    8. 8. New Features by Category 8
    9. 9. Compute New compute driver for Docker • • Shipping container for code Build once and run anywhere, great potential Instance shelving • Removes disk space or available resources on hypervisor; sent to OpenStack Images/Glance until available again New features exposed in Dashboard • • • Resize an instance Boot from volume simpler Per user quotas instead of per tenant PCI passthrough • 9 Expose PCI devices directly to instances
    10. 10. Storage Object Storage • • • Full support for global clusters that support disaster recovery efforts and ensure higher availability Performance improvements: optimized disk operations, internal caching mechanisms, ConfD support to better manage configurations Block Storage • • • • • 10 E2E encryption to any backend Volumes updates include extending volume size, update quotas, ability to transfer volume ownership, and migrate from one backend to another Backup service improvements to Object Storage so any driver can take advantage QoS implementations across vendors Backwards compatible v2 API
    11. 11. Networking New capabilities • • Support for VPN as a service as well as Firewall as a Service Both available in Dashboard Plugin improvements • • Easier for hardware vendors to write to Layer 2 plugins More flexibility New metering support • 11 Important for public/private cloud billing and chargebacks
    12. 12. Cross-project Services • • • • • 12 Image service: Quota support, additional storage options Identity service: Much more pluggable, better separation between AuthZ and AuthN, more granular RBAC Orchestration: New template based orchestration service across OpenStack components Metering/Monitoring: New service to collect and report on usage data across OpenStack components Dashboard: Improved user experience, many new features across projects presented in UI, translation options
    13. 13. Looking forward to the next release: Icehouse Many projects were Incubated in Havana creating a hotbed of innovation. Next release, Icehouse, is coming in April 2014: Deployment (TripleO) Bare metal (Ironic) Hadoop (Savannah) Relational Databases (Trove) Messaging (Marconi) 13
