Re: Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 Key Highlights

@Jayadev: I think the guide you shared does not mention anything about evacuation of instances that have SRIOV/PCI-passthough nics attached to it. Worth noting in the guide whether instance-HA will support evacuation of macvtap based VF's attached to instances as mentioned in : https://specs.openstack.org/openstack/nova-specs/specs/juno/implemented/pci-passthrough-sriov.html. Whether it is tested?

Re: Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 Key Highlights

@sapaul:

- When can we expect the OSP certification being updated on OSP-13?

- How are containerized services orchestrated? some puppet module for docker on director? Does kubernetes come into picture here? How's the HAProxy behavour different from the systemd/pcs based services as compared to load-balancing the containerized services?

- So now does rabbitmq talk to 2 different containers for RPC communications?

Re: Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 Key Highlights

Hi,

It is my understanding that "controllers" can not be escalated, let's say from 3 to 5 controllers, once the installation is done (but i'm not really familiar with OpenStack yet). To do so, one must migrate to a new infrastructure with 5 controllers in it. Is this right? In case it is, is it different now that all services are containerized "for better scalability"?

How this inception game will end? Smiley Happy Could we have an OpenStack inside an Openshift? 

 

Thanks!!!
