Red Hat Releases Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7 based on Kilo

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7 was released, featuring a new deployment and management tool to simplify installation, ease day-to-day management tasks, and establish the underpinnings for orchestrated live system updates and upgrades for subsequent releases.

Based on the OpenStack community “Kilo” release, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is a co-engineered solution that starts with the proven and trusted foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and integrates with Red Hat’s OpenStack technology to form a production-ready cloud platform.

Version 7 includes several new features aimed at accelerating the adoption of OpenStack including:


  • Simplified deployment and management -  the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform director offers a simplified and automated cloud installation tool with system-wide health checking for a proper deployment. It offers an automated “ready-state” provisioning of bare-metal resources to simplify the deployment and repurposing of hardware resources on an on-demand basis. Based on the community-driven OpenStack management project TripleO, the new director combines multiple technologies to offer a single powerful tool which also establishes a new framework that can be used for live orchestrated OpenStack and director upgrades for version 7 and subsequent releases.
  • Traditional workloads requiring high availability on OpenStack - introduces compute host node high availability through integrated, automated monitoring and failover services from Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This new capability monitors host nodes and includes the ability to automatically evacuate virtual machines from hosts, restarting workloads on alternate, available hosts.
  • Greater security control - Telco customers now have greater granularity and control over network traffic ports at the virtual machine level. This allows customers to maintain a tightened security level over the greater OpenStack cloud, while allowing virtualized network function (VNF) traffic through each virtual machine, as necessary. Version 7 introduces this via the Neutron modular layer 2 (ML2) and Open vSwitch (OVS) port security mechanisms included in the community Kilo release.
  • Network flexibility - New Neutron networking features offer greater flexibility and improved network redundancy. Network operators can benefit from several IPv6 enhancements, including the ability to support direct network routing between tenants and the external gateway. In addition, version 7 expands the high availability for Neutron routers and improves the monitoring and reporting of the router to help network operators maintain uptime.
  • Incremental Backup - Storage administrators can now benefit from faster block storage backups and reduced capacity needs with support for snapshot-based backups. With added support for NFS and POSIX file system types, this significantly reduces the amount of storage and time required, by backing up only the incremental changes since the last full state backup.
  • Trusted Integration and Ecosystem

Capacity chairmen would now be able to profit by quicker piece stockpiling reinforcements and lessened limit needs with help for preview based reinforcements. With included help for NFS and POSIX record framework sorts, this fundamentally diminishes the measure of capacity and time required, by moving down just the incremental changes since the last full state reinforcement.Dissertation-Masters.co.uk.
