OpenStack Deployment Panel

Panelists will discuss deploying OpenStack, and questions may include:

- What are the biggest challenges you have faced so far in deploying Diablo?
- What are the size of the OpenStack deployments you have handled so far?
- This release seems to mark the arrival of a large number of tools to simplify deployment of OpenStack, does this mean that it is getting easier to do?
- Do you think that there is a possibility that one day a single tool will be able to handle all deployment scenarios?
- Is deployment the most critical part of an OpenStack project?
- Is speed of deployment a critical factor for you?

Xen and OpenStack

Xen.org has several initiatives that aim to have an impact onOpenStack adoption and feature richness. This talk will include adiscussion on the Xen Cloud Platform (XCP), the XCP toolstack (XAPI)port to popular Linux distributions, and the Xen on ARM initiative.

XCP combines the Xen hypervisor with enhanced security, storage, andnetwork virtualization technologies to offer a rich set of virtualinfrastructure cloud services. These XCP cloud services can beleveraged by OpenStack cloud providers to enable isolation andmulti-tenancy capabilities in their environments. XCP also providesthe user requirements of security, availability, performance, andisolation for private and public OpenStack cloud deployments.

Xen.org is working to make XCP and OpenStack work seamlessly so thattogether they can be the ultimate open source cloud solution. Inaddition to deploying XCP as a separate component with OpenStack,Xen.org is simultaneously porting the XCP toolstack (XAPI) to Linuxdistributions, which will give cloud administrators an easy-to-installOpenStack and Xen-based integrated alternative.

Finally, industry thought leaders, such as Mark Shuttleworth, aresupporting the adoption of ARM in server-class systems. Consequently,the port of Xen to the ARM platform could make it possible forOpenStack and Xen to lead the way into the future of ARM-based clouddeployments.
