Doesn't nova with a docker driver and heat autoscaling handle case 2 and 3 for control jobs? Has anyone tried yet?

I've no idea what Steven's motivation is, but here's my reasoning for going down a similar path: OpenStack deployment is basically two types of software: 1. "Control" jobs, various API servers, etc that are basically just regular python wsgi apps. 2. Compute/network node agents that run under hypervisors, configure host networking, etc. The 2nd group probably wants to run on baremetal and is mostly identical on all such machines, but the 1st group wants higher level PaaS type things. In particular, for the control jobs you want: - Something to deploy the code (docker / distro packages / pip install / etc) - Something to choose where to deploy - Something to respond to machine outages / autoscaling and re-deploy as necessary These last few don't have strong existing options within OpenStack yet (as far as I'm aware). Having explored a few different approaches recently, kubernetes is certainly not the only option - but is a reasonable contender here. So: I certainly don't see kubernetes as competing with anything in OpenStack - but as filling a gap in job management with something that has a fairly lightweight config syntax and is relatively simple to deploy on VMs or baremetal. I also think the phrase "integrating kubernetes into OpenStack" is overstating the task at hand. The primary downside I've discovered so far seems to be that kubernetes is very young and still has an awkward cli, a few easy to encounter bugs, etc. - Gus > From: Steven Dake [mailto:sd...@redhat.com] > Sent: September-24-14 7:41 PM > To: OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) > Subject: Re: [openstack-dev] [all][tripleo] New Project -> Kolla: Deploy and > Manage OpenStack using Kubernetes and Docker > > On 09/24/2014 10:12 AM, Joshua Harlow wrote: > Sounds like an interesting project/goal and will be interesting to see where > this goes. > > A few questions/comments: > > How much golang will people be exposed to with this addition? > > Joshua, > > I expect very little.
