Hi Folks, I think Tony from ECU asked about this before.
Has anyone worked with openstack http://openstack.org/ ? I think integrating openstack provisioning into the VCL framework would benefit VCL. It could also benefit openstack and their current users. From what I understand, Openstack has a large commercial base of users and could be a way to expose VCL to more commercial users. Unless I'm wrong, currently openstack doesn't provide a self-service interface for users to VDI or clusters, nor does it provide bare-metal loads. VCL with xCAT could provide that for that community in a short time-frame. Is there anyone interested in investigating and working on an openstack provisioning module ? I don't think it will take a huge amount of work, one would need to know openstack and how to add in a VCL provisioning module. I'd be willing to assist but would need someone to take the lead on it. Thoughts? I know this is a development question, but also felt this is big enough to include folks on the vcl-user list.
