Ubuntu is the leading OpenStack distribution

Mark Shuttleworth - Wed, 21/05/2014 - 10:03

Kudos to all the speakers, panellists, designers and engineers who made ODS Atlanta such a great event last week. And thanks in particular to the team at Canonical that helped pull together our keynote, I had a very large number of compliments that really belong to all of you!

For those that didn’t make it, here are a few highlights.

First, Ubuntu is the leading OpenStack distribution, with 55% of all production are using Ubuntu, nearly 5x the number for RHEL. There is a big squabble at the moment between vendors in the RHEL camp; for the record, Canonical is happy to work with vendors of alternative OpenStack distributions on Ubuntu as long as we have a commercial agreement that enables us to support users. Nonetheless, the standard way to do OpenStack starts with Ubuntu followed by the addition of Canonical’s cloud archive, installing OpenStack using those packages.

Second, vendors are focused on interoperability through Canonical’s OpenStack Interop Lab (OIL). We build OpenStack thousands of ways every month with permutations and combinations of code from many vendors. Bring us a Juju charm of your work, sign up to the OIL program and we’ll tell you which other vendors you need to do more work with if you want to be interoperable with their OpenStack offerings.

Third, Juju and MAAS are growing support for Windows and CentOS, with other operating systems on the horizon too (patches welcome!). Thanks to contributions from CloudBase Solutions, you’ll get amazing orchestration of Windows and Linux apps on any cloud or bare metal. If you have a Windows app that you want charmed up, they are the guys to talk to! We did a live on-stage install of OpenStack with Ubuntu KVM and Windows Hyper-V with the beta code, and expect it to land in production Juju / MAAS in the coming weeks.

 

I’m particularly excited about a new product we’ve announced, which is a flat-fee fully managed on-premise OpenStack solution. Using our architecture and tools, and your hardware, we can give you a best-of-breed OpenStack deployment with SLA for a fixed fee of $15 per server per day. Pretty amazing, and if you are considering OpenStack, definitely an option to evaluate.  Give us a call!

darthcamaro writes: "Red Hat's Fedora Linux Project Leader, Robyn Bergeron, has announced that she is leaving her role. Bergeron became Fedora Project Leader in February of 2012 and has presided over one of the busiest periods for Fedora ever. Fedora is now moving to a new model for Fedora 21, with separate desktop, cloud and server products. 'The community has now gotten to the point where it's not a one-size-fits-all product anymore,' Bergeron said."
