Self-Heal Your OpenStack Control Plane
We went to Austin for BBQ, and an OpenStack Summit broke out…
…OK, maybe that’s not entirely true, but the BBQ was good.
When we started this journey less than 5 weeks ago in preparation for the Austin OpenStack Summit, we’d already collectively had many OpenStack deployments under our belts, both manually deployed and through the use of automation, for example through the use of automation tools like Ansible. We went from days and weeks to deploy, down to hours. We experienced a lot of pain each time, even as we’d done our Nth deployment. But we somehow felt that, even with automation, it was not good enough. Some capabilities were still missing from the final product.
With CI/CD so pervasive now, coupled with DevOps, we thought that there must be a better, faster way to commoditize the spin up of an OpenStack cloud. In other words, could we make it available to the masses. To plot our course, we needed a vision of what a good deployment might look like.
