This blog post presents a plugin for OpenStack Heat which adds support for Apache CloudStack resources and thus enables a template-based orchestration on CloudStack using Heat. As this plugin extends the standard Heat’s resource type list it can also be used within our Hurtle orchestrator for providing your application as a service or any other application underlying on Heat. This work follows from our earlier work in which we developed a Heat plugin for SDC. Continue reading
In Mobile Cloud Networking (MCN) we rely heavily on OpenStack, OpenShift and of course Automation. So that developers can get working fast with their own local infrastructure, we’ve spent time setting up an automated workflow, using Vagrant and puppet to setup both OpenStack and OpenShift. If you want to experiment with both OpenStack and OpenShift locally, simply clone this project:
$ git clone https://github.com/dizz/os-ops.git
Once it has been cloned you’ll need to initialise the submodules:
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
After that just you can begin the setup of OpenStack and OpenShift. You’ll need an installation of VirtualBox and Vagrant.
There’s some gotchas, so look at the known issues in the README, specific to OpenStack. Otherwise, open your web browser at: http://10.10.10.51.
You’ve two OpenShift options:
Once done open your web browser at: https://10.10.10.53/console/applications. There more info in the README.
In the next post we’ll look at getting OpenShift running on OpenStack, quickly and fast using two approaches, direct with puppet and using Heat orchestration.
The second swiss OpenStack user group (CHOSUG) was held. It was an excellent event so well attended that there was only standing room! A big thanks goes out to the organisers and sponsors (RackSpace, SWITCH and ICCLab).
There was six presentations, 3 which were more detailed and 3 that were more lightning talks in nature. Lucas and Toni from the ICCLab gave a super presentation on Ceilometer and Christof made short work of the deep topic of OpenStack and CloudFoundry. The presentations (in running order) were:
All talks were recorded by the kind folks at SWITCH and are available for your viewing pleasure!
Check out more pics on the CHOSUG flickr account.
We (ICCLab and ZHGeeks) are pleased to announce the 2nd Swiss OpenStack Meetup. It will happen on the 19th of February in Zurich at ETH. If you’re keen and interested in attending then please register here.
If you are interested in giving a talk then do give a shout out at the meetup site or simply message @OpenStackCH on twitter. Currently there are talks planned for:
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
