Our cloud in Kilo, by Tim Bell

Following on from previous upgrades, CERN migrated the OpenStack cloud
to Kilo during September to November. Along with the bug fixes, we are
planning on exploiting the significant number of new features,
especially as related to performance tuning. The overall cloud
architecture was covered at the Tokyo OpenStack summit video

Evolving IT architectures: It can be hard, by Gordon Haff

This is the second in a series of posts that delves deeper into the
questions that IDC’s Mary Johnston Turner and Gary Chen considered in a
recent IDC Analyst Connection. The second question asked: What are the
typical challenges that organizations need to address as part of this
evolution [to IT that at least includes a strong cloud-native component]?

Thinking outside the box and outside the gate to improve OpenStack and
RDO by David Moreau Simard

I recently explained how testing everything in OpenStack is hard. The
reality is that the RDO community has finite resources. Testing
everything is not just hard, it’s time consuming and expensive. I’ve
been thinking a lot about how to tackle this and experimented around
ways to improve our test coverage in this context.
