Challenge OpenStack on openSUSE OpenStack is a project implementing a cloud platform, aiming to meet the needs of any type of cloud (public or private). The heart of OpenStack provides IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) to deploy software that uses hardware on demand, depending on current needs. A well-known service using IaaS example is the VoD platform Netflix and in the case of Netflix, one hour to the next, the number of customers using the VoD may vary by millions, and it is therefore necessary software and infrastructure used this service to adapt; More broadly, almost all popular services used on the Internet are now based in one way or another on the IaaS. A project such that OpenStack is necessarily complex, and its modular architecture (with, among others, keystone, glance, cinder, neutron, and nova horizon) allows great flexibility, but makes the deployment somewhat difficult. See diagrams on The objective of this challenge is to deploy a mini-cloud using OpenStack 2013.2 release (Havana ) on openSUSE 13.1. This cloud will rotate so virtualized on your computer (and will therefore launch a virtual machine from what is already a virtual machine), and deployment must use at least the following components: keystone, glance, cinder, neutron (with linuxbridge plugin) and nova (with KVM virtualization). At first, a turning on a single virtualized cloud node may be implemented, but the goal is to have at least a second node "compute" to launch instances. obviously There are many ways to deploy and configure OpenStack (directly from git, using packet or with existing tools) - the path is free! To measure the quality of deployment and configuration tool tempest OpenStack (which contains hundreds of functional tests) should be also configured and used to generate a log with the results. Prerequisite: a computer with at least 8 GB of RAM. Introduction: OpenSUSE 12.3 is slated for release in March. In preparation, a group of people will gather for a 2-day hackfest at the SUSE headquarters in Nuremberg, Germany. More details including hotel, Nuremberg information and more will be posted as soon as full details become available. It takes place from Friday 19 to Saturday 20, hosted by SUSE at the office at Maxfeldstraße 5 in Nue. About the meeting In short: goal is to squash bugs, polish up some features, close the seams to make it all look and work well. We have a list of about 240 bugs to work on and hope to significantly reduce that number. Bug query Chat in #opensuse-factory There will be snacks, food and fun in between the hacking. We will have a G+ Hangout, starting at 10:00 CET, stopping at 12:00 CET for lunch and continuing around 14:00 CET until an undetermined time. Practical details Hotel The openSUSE Team will book the hotel. All should be arranged by now. The hotel will in Nuremberg, walking distance from the office where we meet. Travel Tips Weather By the time you arrive, Nuremberg is COLD. Rainy, windy but not unlikely snowy and icy too. Dress warm! Agenda We will begin our meetings Friday at 9:30 a.m., Saturday around 10:00. Each day, a Google+ Hangout is opened around 10:00 as well so people can join remotely.

On Sunday everyone will demo to each other and will get feedback from an expert panel. After voting by the judges, and by all of you, we will celebrate with some fun prizes.
