This month, we’re featuring OpenShift Commons Special Interest Groups (SIG); today’s post is about the OpenShift-on-OpenStack SIG about their mission to facilitate the sharing of best practices, use cases and lessons learned deploying and managing OpenShift, Red Hat’s Enterprise-ready Kubernetes for Developers on OpenStack, the Open Source cloud computing platform.

Kick-off meeting held with a Reference Architecture talk from Dell

We kicked off the OpenShift Commons OpenShift on OpenStack SIG with a presentation by SIG Chair, Judd Matlin of Dell on Dell's Reference Architecture for OpenShift on OpenStack. You can watch the recording of the presentation in the below video.

Currently, the high level scenario that is being discussed in the SIG, is focused on using OpenShift to manage containerized workloads running on top of OpenStack. There have also been a number of discussions around how to leverage deeper integrations between Kubernetes and the OpenStack services themselves. We're always open to new topics and if you'd like to present, please reach out to the SIG Chairs via the mailing list.

Next Up: 1000 nodes of OpenShift on OpenStack

The next OpenShift on OpenStack SIG meeting will be held on October 19th at 9:00 am Pacific and will feature a presentation by Red Hat's Jeremy Eder from Red Hat’s Performance and Tuning team who will be discussing the findings from his work deploying both OpenStack and OpenShift on’s Cluster. He’ll also be discussing the test harness that used to do the scaling tests and the lessons learned.

Jeremy is the author of the blog, "Deploying 1000 nodes of OpenShift on the CNCF Cluster". Be sure to read it in advance, bring your questions and feedback for the discussion session after his presentation. There will be plenty of time allocated for Q/A.
