Video recording and post production done by OpenStack Foundation.
Rackspace invites the OpenStack community to hear the story of deployments at scale during the Juno cycle and share in the latest challenges, triumphs, and lessons learned from regularly upgrading the control plane of a production OpenStack public cloud. At the end of Icehouse, there were about 40,000 things in the public cloud to deploy to. How many deploy things will there be at the end of Juno? Did control plane releases speed up or slow down? Is Rackspace still looking at releasing every two weeks from upstream trunk?
Rainya Mosher will take you through the release and deploy process utilized within Rackspace, starting with a developer working on code upstream and ending with final delivery to six production environments. She ll highlight how changes to the packaging, gating, and deployment mechanisms have improved cycle times within the release and deploy process. She'll share stats on the state of OpenStack deployments at Rackspace, the impact the migration to Neutron had on release cycles, and performance improvements achieved in terms of speed and reduced customer impact. Rainya will end by looking forward to what is planned for the Kilo cycle that will make releases more visible and deployments less impactful for Rackspace and the entire deployer community.
