In this OpenShift Commons OpenStack SIG Video

This week’s OpenShift on OpenStack SIG meeting’s guest speaker was Jeremy Eder from Red Hat’s Performance and Tuning team discussing the findings from his work deploying both OpenStack and OpenShift on’s Cluster. He also covered the test harness that was used to perform the scaling tests and the lessons learned.


Imagine being able to stand up thousands of tenants with thousands of apps, running thousands of Docker-formatted container images and routes, on a self-healing cluster. Take that one step further with all those images being updatable through a single upload to the registry, all without downtime. We were given the opportunity to do just that on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform running on Red Hat OpenStack on the 1000 node Cloud Native Foundation's cluster.

The mission of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is to create and drive the adoption of a new computing paradigm that is optimized for modern, distributed systems environments capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self-healing multi-tenant nodes. The CNCF made the CNCF cluster available to the open source community. It’s rare to come across large swaths of high-end bare metal and over the last 8 weeks, engineers at Red Hat have put the environment to great use to stress test our open source solutions for our customers. In this presentation, Jeremy Eder walked through the results, lessons learned, and next steps.
