Life Without DevStack: Upstream Development With OSAD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this talk I will share my experience doing upstream OpenStack development using the OpenStack Ansible Deployment (OSAD) distribution instead of DevStack as my development platform.

OSAD is a production OpenStack distribution for private clouds that deploys upstream OpenStack direct from the official git repositories, without any vendor-specific patches or add-ons. But unlike DevStack, services are isolated from each other in LXC containers, providing more flexibility and less dependency headaches.

In this talk I will give you an introduction to the OSAD project and show you how I use it to contribute code upstream. Topics I will cover during the presentation include: 

  • What is OSAD?

  • Architecture overview

  • How to deploy an OSAD all-in-one for upstream development

  • OSAD vs. DevStack: How are they similar, and how are they different?

  • Development workflow

  • Types of upstream work that work well with OSAD.

  • Types of upstream work that do not work well with OSAD.

  • Live Demonstration
