Yes, at Overstock our users don't provision instances directly out of horizon or nova. They use an orchestration tool we wrote in Django which among other things tracks a lease time, warns users about expiration, allows them to extend etc. Works great for us, but the same approach may not

We discussed Blazar fairly extensively in a couple of recent scientific-wg meetings. I'm having trouble searching out right the irc log to support this but IIRC the problem with Blazar as is for the typical virtualised cloud (non-Ironic) use-case is that it uses an old/deprecated Nova API

Resource reservation is one of the key requirements OPNFV is driving for Telco NFV usecases. Today it is staged within "Promise" project as a shim layer, but the intention is to get a native support through OpenStack core services like nova, neutron, cinder. Here are some urls where the

When I last looked, Blazar allows you to reserve instances for a given time. An example would be - We are organizing a user training session for 100 physicists from Monday to Friday - We need that each user is able to create 2 VMs within a single shared project (as the images etc. are set up

We do something similar. We give everyone in the company an account on the internal cloud. By default they have a user- project. We have a Jenkins job that adds metadata to all vm’s that are in user- projects. We then have additional jobs that read that metadata and determine when the VM

Hi All, As a private cloud operatior who doesn't charge internal users, I'd really like a way to force users to set an exiration time on their instances so if they forget about them they go away. I'd though Blazar was the thing to look at and Chameleoncloud.org seems to be using it (any of you

I hear you, Matt. TripleO is great, and v useful for what it is. But I agree that in our (been-there-done-that) experience, it was never intended to be a production-ready environment - and it isn’t. Ø I like the idea of OOO I do too - we all do! But in a production environment it’s currently

Hi folks, I agree. HP(E) were major contributors to TripleO in the early days, and our V1 Helion product was based on it. But, as Dan says, we wrote a new OpenStack installer from scratch for V2+. Mostly in Ansible. The sources are up on GitHub with an Apache2 license - feel free to take and
