OpenStack is "one platform", one open infrastructure platform. It can provide various resources (VMs, bare metal machines, container orchestration engines, single container hosts, object storage...) with shared services. You can use your Keystone authentication across the board. You get "one platform" for compute resources of different types, and within that platform they can share networks, block storage or filesystems. This "open stack" can integrate components that are not developed by the OpenStack community, but for those that are, we aim to simplify the operational experience by using the same set of base services, log formats or configuration style. We need to produce maps of OpenStack that will make it clearer how everything fits together, and expose the open nature of the stack. I'm leading a Board+TC+UC group working on that mapping effort. We need to make it easier for infrastructure pieces produced outside of our community to be plugged into the open infrastructure platform, and I'm reaching out to those communities to preach the word, but also support Keystone, Cinder and Neutron efforts to serve a wider set of consumer services. Finally, over the past cycle I pushed a clear definition of the notion of base services. Over the coming cycle we should refine and expand the set to include new services that every component in the OpenStack family could take advantage of, like etcd.
