Mirantis Announces Support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM
Ronen Kofman - July 18, 2014

(Guest Post) In May we announced the tech preview of the Oracle’s Distribution for OpenStack for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. As we have been doing for many years with Linux and Xen, we plan to work with the OpenStack community and help make OpenStack an enterprise grade alternative for cloud deployments. We are very pleased with the Mirantis announcement today stating that Mirantis will offer …

Five Days + Twelve Writers + One Book Sprint = One Excellent Book on OpenStack Architecture
Nick Chase, OpenStack: Now - July 15, 2014

One thing about OpenStack is that you can find lots of information on how to do specific things, such as start an instance or install a test cloud on VirtualBox, but there isn’t much out there to give you the Big Picture, such as how to design a massively-scalable OpenStack cloud, or a cloud that’s optimized for delivering streaming content. That’s why this past week a dozen OpenStack experts and writers from companies across the OpenStack ecosystem gathered at VMware’s Palo Alto campus for the OpenStack Architecture Design Guide book sprint. The intent was to deliver a completed book on designing OpenStack clouds — in just five days.

This Week in OpenStack:Now (July 7, 2014-July 13, 2014)
John Jainschigg - July 14, 2014

A busy week in OpenStack, headlined by the release of Swift 2.0 with Storage Policies, the launch of Project Calico -- an open source Layer 3 SDN architecture that meets requirements for NFV, and the release of RHELOSP 5.0. Meanwhile, contributors to the third OpenStack Book Sprint created a massive OpenStack Architecture Design Guide, soon to be available for download …

Red Hat ‘s Icehouse-Based RHELOSP 5.0 Distro Will Offer Three Years of Support, VMware Integration
John Jainschigg, OpenStack: Now - July 14, 2014

On July 8, Red Hat released version 5 of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. RHELOSP 5.0 is based on April’s Icehouse release of OpenStack, plus RH Enterprise Linux 7, and RH Enterprise Virtualization 3.4 — both released last month. The new spin will offer three years of support, double that of RHELOSP 4, released seven months ago.

Metaswitch Launches Project Calico: Open Source Layer 3 Virtual Networking
John Jainschigg, OpenStack: Now - July 14, 2014

Network virtualization pioneers Metaswitch Networks announced the launch of Project Calico, to which they’ve contributed the initial codebase under a (permissive) Apache license. Calico uses Layer 3 internet core routing technologies and tools like Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for route discovery to network VMs and hosts, whole datacenters, and multiple datacenter locations via carrier networks. The Calico project is part of Metaswitch’s Neuron initiative, which provides a continuous framework for Network Function Virtualization (NFV) that meets the needs of both datacenter operators running VM/host architectures with lots of virtualized tenant clusters and networks (i.e., the typical OpenStack use-case), and carriers building extremely high-density data centers that virtualize at Layer 3 and may use container-based (e.g., Docker, Flynn) isolation schemes.

Swift 2.0 Released – Now with Storage Policies
John Jainschigg, OpenStack:Now - July 14, 2014

On Tuesday last, OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) released an upgrade hailed as the most significant since the project was initially open sourced. Swift 2.0 debuts Storage Policies, a simplified way to dynamically requisition storage meeting application requirements for storage tier/medium type, speed, capacity, replication level — even geographic area, to enable compliance with data sovereignty laws and regulations. Extensions to the Storage Policies scheme will support additional new features expected later this year, such as Erasure Coding.

Missing Building Blocks for Enterprise OpenStack: Part 1 – High Availability
Dmitriy Novakovskiy - July 7, 2014

It’s a great time to be an OpenStack company – you get the majority of data for marketing and product management by simply talking to customers and partners every day. Nevertheless, the landscape is quite competitive – so both for the community and for individual vendors, it’s important to build and prioritize the feature backlog wisely, all while being clear on who wants what. I’ll call “captain obvious” here, but still, the needs of the Enterprise are quite different from those of a service provider, a government, or some “web-scale” IT shop.

Is OpenStack cloud free enough for you? A free week to find out
David M. Fishman - June 30, 2014

For all the talk about OpenStack cloud, it's not ridiculous to ask whether the work to make an OpenStack cloud isn't as 'cloud' as it's cracked up to be. A year ago, Ebay's Subbu Allamaraju published a compelling post with the provocative title "OpenStack is not cloud".  He laid out how much time and effort goes to running a cloud, …

Managing VMware vCenter Resources with Mirantis OpenStack 5.0 — Part 1: Create the vSphere Cluster
Vasiliy Pleshakov, Anastasia Pospelova and Aleksey Kolodyazhn - June 25, 2014

One of the great things about OpenStack is that it enables you to make the most out of the resources that you have, providing a self-service IaaS environment that lets you move faster and operate more efficiently. But what if you already have a virtualization system in place, such as VMware vCenter?
