Video recording and production done by OpenStack Foundation.
As OpenStack becomes easier to deploy the next frontier of deploying one large cloud across regions, or multiple smaller clouds that are federated, has been a keenly followed topic of interest and an architecture that is becoming a reality.
Having just worked through implementing and automating a multi-region/federated solution for openstack-ansible, we'd like to answer the question 'What does it take to run and deploy a multi location cloud?'.
We'll cover the benefits of a multi-region/federation cloud and what these terms mean within OpenStack. As well as challenges we've run into and solutions to overcome these. This will cover in more detail, specific topics such as Authentication and Federation, as well as Global Clustering for Object Storage.
