OpenStack Marketing Meeting - Icehouse Release

  1. 1. OpenStack Icehouse Release Open Marketing Meeting April 9, 2014
  2. 2. 2 “Software is eating the world” - The Enterprise Shift • Software is now strategic to all companies. Successful enterprises must become tech companies regardless of industry type, or they’ll go the way of the dinosaur. • This changes everything. How software is produced & consumed, as well as the talent war, because you can’t buy strategy in a box. • Moving at the speed of cloud means minutes instead of months to provision app resources. • OpenStack is an enabling technology for the shift, but also is a diverse community with an open design process which welcomes users to set the roadmap. • The Icehouse release reflects this trend.
  3. 3. 3 OpenStack Cloud Platform
  4. 4. 4 4 Greater OpenStack Ecosystem Integrated Release Graduation • The software released every 6 months • Technical Committee managed + Release Manager & PTLs • On the road to the integrated release • Typically takes 18-24 months before being approved for graduation • Approved for Incubation by the Technical Committee • More stringent requirements for incubation approved by TC • Wide range of related open source projects • Some may apply for incubation • Many will never apply.

  9. 9. 9 OpenStack Icehouses Technology Themes Integrated Release Matures Efficiency at Scale • Testing for drivers and upgrades • Rolling upgrades • Ops-driven features continue to make it easier to manage and scale • Incubation continues to drive innovation • Object Storage replication options (s- sync) • Block Storage horizontal scalability • Data layer performance improvements for large deployments Tighter Platform Integration • Boot process reliability across platform services • Consistency across services
  10. 10. 10 Key Themes Across the Community More users/operators continue to shape software • Users contribute code for real world use cases to solve issues they see day to day • New opportunities for users to influence roadmap Many users finding the right path to adoption for their business • One size does not fit all: that’s why OpenStack is the right choice for so many Testing/Reliability requirements continue to rise • Rigorous testing now a requirement across projects • Strict criteria to be part of the integrated release, need test coverage and CI
  11. 11. 12 New Features by Category
  12. 12. 13 Compute Improved upgrade support • Rolling upgrades • No impact to user workloads Testing requirements enhanced • All included third-party drivers fully tested • Upgrade testing for all contributions Other updates • Improved scheduler performance • Boot process reliability across platform services • More features exposed to end users via API updates, such as ability to target machines by affinity • More efficient access to data layer; improves performance, especially at scale
  13. 13. 14 Storage Object Storage • Discoverability: major update, ability to ask any Object Storage cloud what capabilities are available • New replication process significantly improves performance; data is more efficiently transported through new s-sync (instead of r-sync) • Major storage policies feature in progress and coming in Juno Block Storage • Backend migration with tiered storage environments, allowing for performance management in heterogeneous environments • Testing for external drivers to ensure API consistency across storage platforms • Scalability improvements with fully distributed services
  14. 14. 15 Networking Tighter integration with Compute • State managed across Compute and Networking provisioning actions • Improved consistency with instance creation Driver testing and cross-service testing • Better functional testing for actions that require coordination between multiple services • Third-party driver testing ensures consistency and reliability across network implementations Focus on scale and feature parity with nova-network • Both networking options still available
  15. 15. 16 Shared Services • Identity service: Federated authentication with Shibboleth • Orchestration: Additional native autoscaling resources available, Configuration API for managing applications, reduced dependence on administrative API • Telemetry: Rest API to access stored events implemented • Dashboard: Design updated and user experience improvements (e.g. in-line editing), three new languages added • Database Service: New capability included in the integrated release, allows management of relational database services in an OpenStack environment
  16. 16. 17 The OpenStack model encourages innovation around a stable integrated release. Looking forward to Juno, coming in October 2014: Incubated projects • Bare metal (Ironic) • Hadoop (Sahara) • Messaging (Marconi) Looking forward to the next release: Juno
  17. 17. 18 Icehouse Release, April 17th • Press release • Latest release page at OpenStack.org updated • Screenshots & demo available • Webinar at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET OpenStack Summit, May 12-16 • All sponsors and speakers must be registered by Monday, April 15, and registration prices go up starting the 16th • More than 50 press and analysts registered • New Ops Meetup happening Monday & Friday • Thank you to 90+ sponsors Key Dates & Next Steps
