Introducing Senlin – a new tool for speedy, load-balanced OpenStack clustering

Senlin is a new OpenStack project that provides a generic clustering service for OpenStack clouds. It’s capable of managing homogeneous objects exposed by other OpenStack components, including Nova, Heat, or Cinder, making it of interest to anyone using, or thinking of using, VMware Integrated OpenStack.

VMware OpenStack architect Mark Voelker, along with VMware colleague Xinhui Li and Qiming Teng of IBM, offer a helpful introduction to Senlin in their 2016 OpenStack Summit session, now viewable here.

Voelker opens by reviewing the generic requirements for OpenStack clustering, which include simple manageability, expandability on demand, load-balancing, customizability to real-life use cases, and extensibility.

OpenStack already offers limited cluster management capabilities through Heat’s orchestration service, he notes. But Heat’s mission is to orchestrate composite cloud apps using a declarative template format through an OpenStack-native API. While functions like auto-scaling, high availability, and load balancing are complimentary to that mission, having those functions all in a single service isn’t ideal.
