I've noticed you list "Remote install and configure a Hadoop cluster (synergy 
with Savanna?)" among possible use cases. Recently there was a discussion about 
Savanna on bare metal provisioning through Nova (see thread [1]). Nobody tested 
that yet, but it was concluded that it should work without any changes in 
Savanna code.

So if Compass could set up baremetal provisioning with Nova, possibly Savanna 
will work on top of that out of the box.

The referenced thread is one of the threads that got us wondering whether 
Compass could be of use here.  If you're going to the summit, you can 
brainstorm with our guys.  Otherwise, we can take up this discussion after the 
summit.  Compass should be able to build baremetal based installs or VM-based 
instances starting from baremetal.  The key is to make sure the Compass design 
and implementation meets the needs/requirements of Savanna and other OpenStack

Cool - when is it? I'd like to get along.

I'm /particularly/ interested in the interaction with Neutron and
network modelling - do you use Neutron for the physical switch
interrogation, do you inform Neutron about the topology and so on.

Anyhow, lets make sure we can connect and see where we can collaborate!
