Containers rule the world: Containerized OpenStack for more efficient Operations
If you’re an app developer, the world is a container playground. Let’s look at why that model works for Infrastructure services as well even if your end user is still working in a virtual machine based world. We’ll investigate the value proposition of containers and the changes to operational interactions that make containerization such a powerful operations enhancement. And we’ll review the current models for running OpenStack in a container environment. Robert Starmer is a founder at Kumulus Technologies, a San Francisco Bay-area infrastructure focused DevOps, systems reliability engineering and cloud computing consultancy. He uses his more than 20 years of experience in cloud, SRE and DevOps to educate the industry through articles, presentations and curriculum development.

    OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, managed through a dashboard ( or via the OpenStack API ( OpenStack works with popular enterprise and open source technologies ( making it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure.

    Hundreds of the world’s largest brands ( rely on OpenStack to run their businesses every day, reducing costs and helping them move faster.
