OpenStack – Icehouse Release Update

Today, we expect the release of OpenStack Icehouse. In March, we reminded readers that Docker will continue to have OpenStack integration in Icehouse through our integration with Heat. Of course, that remains true.  Since then, however, much has happened to warrant an update. Since our last post, we’ve received great feedback from the community on their efforts in using OpenStack Heat to automate their Docker workloads. We’ve also seen great contributions to the Nova driver, including the addition of Neutron support. Additionally, we’ve also seen a fabulous effort from Brint O’Hearn of Rackspace in showing how to drive Heat workloads without our Heat plugin and Docker being more deeply embedded in OpenCrowbar.

While a Docker driver for OpenStack Nova had already been accepted into OpenStack for the Havana release, it became clear during the conference that Docker and containers had impacts and implications far beyond the Nova driver.

OpenStack Havana is out and includes native Docker support

The OpenStack foundation announced yesterday that the last version of OpenStack, codename “Havana”, is now available – and it now includes Docker! The OpenStack project has a release cycle of 6 months. For this new release, more than 400 feature blueprints have been implemented and more than 3000 reported bugs have been addressed. Among those new features, OpenStack Havana introduces a native support for Docker containers in the OpenStack Compute project. Docker is now supported as a new hypervisor enabling OpenStack users to deploy and manage Docker containers using the Nova API. This means two big things:

Awesome projects from the Docker community
