Having recently passes its second birthday, OpenStack is a relatively new entrant into the world of open-source virtualization. Since its announcement, it has gained incredible traction and momentum with hundreds of developers contributing to each release. OpenStack's success - and the potential for it to be deployed pervasively at massive scale, particularly in public clouds - presents an opportunity for KVM's continued growth and adoption.
Mark, a former KVM developer, will introduce the OpenStack project, its architecture and current status. Mark will then talk in some detail about how OpenStack currently uses KVM and libvirt before setting the scene for a a discussion about how OpenStack could adopt more of KVM's unique features to the benefit of both projects.
