We kicked off the OpenShift Commons OpenShift on OpenStack SIG with a presentation by SIG Chair, Judd Matlin of Dell on Dell’s Reference Architecture.
Next Up: 1000 nodes of OpenShift on OpenStack
The next OpenShift on OpenStack SIG meeting will be held on October 19th at 9:00 am Pacific and will feature a presentation by Red Hat’s Jeremy Eder from Red Hat’s Performance and Tuning team who will be discussing the findings from his work deploying both OpenStack and OpenShift on CNCF.io’s Cluster. He’ll also be discussing the test harness that used to do the scaling tests and the lessons learned.
Jeremy is the author of the CNCF.io blog, “Deploying 1000 nodes of OpenShift on the CNCF Cluster“. Be sure to read it in advance, bring your questions and feedback for the discussion session after his presentation. There will be plenty of time allocated for Q/A.

Speaking at TechEd Europe, Russinovich essentially says OpenStack isn’t ready for prime time.
“I think [OpenStack] is an interesting one, but an extremely challenging one to build up. Cloud platform as an open model, especially with the dynamic of lots of companies stacked up trying to leverage it and wanting to take it, and innovate on it. This is at odds with the consistent platform message that OpenStack wants to carry with it.”
