We’ve made 3 different but related proposals for the upcoming OpenStack Summit, and as everybody, we would like to be retained in order to disclose what we’re working on and think could improve the ecossytem.
The second, which would benefit greatly from the work of the first, is “Alexandria: The librarian bridging OpenStack and CMDBs” which is a nascent new component to allow easily with a plugin based architecture to bridge CMDBs (starting with the great Open Source iTop one) and OpenStack features such as bare-metal deployment with Ironic, managing also automatic inventory. Amitious but pretty useful in our opinion, of course to help manage our Datacenter, but the one of any OpenStack customer as well.
Finally, We’d like to present our overall view on how OpenSTack is at the heart of a Software Defined Infrastructure with our last presentation. This one targets more architects and decision makers, while the 2 others will be more technical and cover implementation details. All will have demos.
Hopefully, you’ll agree with me to find that these topics deserve being elected !! And thus vite for them 😉
In that case, I can just wish we’ll meet over there 🙂 !
