OpenStack is notoriously complex to deploy and update. Traditional method of using RPMs is extremely unreliable due to inter-dependencies resulting into delays in deployment and failures in update. Any change in any of the RPMs may can adversely impact other RPMs and the deployment risks failures and delays.
Leveraging OpenStack upstream Kolla project, Oracle has transformed the deployment. OpenStack services are deployed as micro-services in docker containers which are fully independent from each other. Using the Ansible deployment tool, any of the containers can be changed or replaced easily without impacting other containers.
