OpenStack deployments currently use RabbitMQ as the AMQP backend for messaging between OpenStack nova services on different nodes. This feature will allow the use of Qpid as an alternative. Qpid supports some features, such as active-active clustering and federation of message brokers, that are not available with RabbitMQ.
Benefit to Fedora
With this feature in place, OpenStack administrators have more choice about what infrastructure they would like to put in place for their cloud.
This is primarily an upstream development effort. We must develop a new module that will be incorporated into OpenStack nova to support using Qpid. We aim to get this completed and integrated into the OpenStack Essex release. At that point we will just need to make sure that the new module is properly packaged and is compatible with the version of Qpid in Fedora.
How To Test
If this feature is not completed in time, it will get pulled and bumped to the next release. No other feature depends on this one.
