[edit] OpenStack Folsom

[edit] Summary

OpenStack will be upgraded to the next major stable release, called "Folsom".

[edit] Owner

[edit] Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 18
  • Last updated: 2012-10-12
  • Percentage of completion: 100%

[edit] Detailed Description

OpenStack is an open source cloud computing platform. It lets you set up your own cloud infrastructure, similar to public clouds like Amazon EC2, Azure, etc.

In Fedora 17 OpenStack Essex was packaged and in Fedora 18 we aim to package OpenStack "Folsom".

Folsom is not released yet, but is scheduled to be released roughly over the same development period as Fedora 18, and we are working closely with upstream to ensure this happens.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Fedora users will be able to deploy OpenStack clouds based on the latest version (Folsom).

[edit] Scope

This is mainly packaging work, involving updating existing packages and including new dependencies in the distribution. There are other possible aspects including:

  • Support for PostgreSQL
  • Upgrades from the previous Essex version
  • Support for yum groupinstall openstack

[edit] How To Test

Follow Test_Day:2012-09-18_OpenStack, which is very beneficial, both in testing and in describing the features and processes involved with OpenStack.

[edit] User Experience

Users will be able to install and upgrade to the OpenStack Folsom release on Fedora 18 hosts.

[edit] Dependencies

Upgrades from Essex to Folsom may need significant upstream work to achieve

[edit] Contingency Plan

The parts of OpenStack that are ready will be included in Fedora. There is no special contingency plan required.
