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?
