Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 is already out and here are are 3 fascinating facts about it.
- Services are now fully containerized for better scalability.
- Supports to provision controller nodes as Virtual Machines in a Red Hat Virtualization environment.
- Full support of Octavia project for load balancing of network packets.
Any thoughts, please?
@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?
- 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?
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? Could we have an OpenStack inside an Openshift?
