Scality was present at the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo 2015. The OpenStack Summit provides a wide array of persistent storage services, ranging from local data volumes managed by the Cinder API, to object storage via Swift, image storage via Glance, and shared file services through Manila. For OpenStack administrators, this can create a management burden by imposing multiple independent storage silos to provide volume, file and object storage for Nova based application instances.
OpenStack enterprise readiness received a lot of attention back at the OpenStack summit in Vancouver earlier this summer, which is particularly interesting as it shows that OpenStack has reached a certain level of maturity. But does it mean that enterprise IT departments have the tools necessary to be able to operate OpenStack and maintain an installation? Can legacy enterprise applications be moved to the private cloud? A notable difference between a cloud app and a traditional enterprise business application is that the former is engineered with the dynamic nature of the cloud in mind. It is keeping itself aware of.
The OpenStack Summit in Vancouver ended a few days ago. I was fortunate enough to be there with several colleagues from Scality. There were many interesting sessions and I’ve captured the high points below.
Last week the global OpenStack community gathered in the beautiful city of Vancouver (Canada) to celebrate the release of OpenStack Kilo (which Scality recently announced support for), share knowledge, and report experiences in hundreds of technical sessions, as well as to start planning and designing the features that will be part of the next release; dubbed Liberty.
We continue to work with OpenStack adopters to enhance extend the RING’s capabilities for innovative cloud use cases. Today, Scality is announcing support for OpenStack Swift Storage Policies, as well as a native OpenStack Glance storage API.
The OpenStack Summit in Paris ended a few days ago. I was fortunate enough to be there with several of my colleagues from Scality. There were many interesting sessions and I've captured the high points below.
Last week the OpenStack community gathered in Paris, France to celebrate the Juno release of the OpenStack platform, and simultaneously get together to brainstorm and collaborate about the Kilo release, the next cycle. This was the first time I attended an OpenStack Summit and gave quite an impression. The OpenStack community is huge! The sheer amount of companies involved, ranging from small start-ups all around the ecosystem up to the largest IT vendors around (hello HP, IBM, Cisco, RedHat, Intel, Ericsson and so many others!). It amazes me how many companies provide consultancy & training, innovative storage solutions integrations, enhance the.
