This document describes steps I took to setup a compute node based on Ubuntu 14.04 for OpenStack “juno”, using the Xen Project via libvirt approach. Openstack does not support this approach well as it is in Group C of the hypervisor support matrix for Openstack. You can hardly find any tutorial online describing this approach and this might be the first. Let’s get started!
Follow “OpenStack Installation Guide for Ubuntu 14.04” to setup the control node and network node, following the three-node architecture with OpenStack Networking (neutron). This involves lots of configuration and could take a day or two. Check that the control node and network node is working.
The Xen.org community will have a boothÂ (#210) at the joint LinuxWorld / Next Generation Data Center event held in San Francisco, August 5- 7 at the Moscone Center. The booth will be staffed by myself as well as community members with spare time during the event.Â If you are planning on attending this event and would like to help please let me know. I will be creating a schedule for community members later this year as we get closer to August.
I am starting a new community initiative to collect and write Xen hypervisor case studies to demonstrate the variety of ways that the Xen hypervisor is leveraged in the IT world. The initial case study is from a Swedish company, ATG: ATG Case Study Feb 29, 2008
I have created a new section in the Wiki to store all the case studies that the community or I create. You can get to the Wiki case study section here.Â Please feel free to create your own case study and upload into the Wiki site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like my assistance. Having an updated collection of case studies is a great way for the community to show the power and capabilities of the Xen hypervisor.
Welcome to the new Xen.org Blog site hosted by Slicehost running on your community Xen hypervisor solution. This blog site is open to all Xen.org members to communicate on all things Xen. Please keep all blog posts about the Xen hypervisor and related technology and remember this is not a marketing or sales tool to promote your Xen solution. I look forward to reading the variety of topics posted on Xen.
