Upgrading the Solaris engineering OpenStack Cloud

Glynn Foster
Product Manager

Internally we've set up an OpenStack cloud environment for the developers of Solaris as a self-service Infrastructure as a Service solution. We've been running a similar service for years called LRT, or Lab Reservation Tool, that allows developers to book time on systems in our lab. Dave Miner has blogged previously about this work to set up the OpenStack cloud, initially based on Havana:

While the OpenStack team were off building the tools to make an upgrade painless, Dave was patiently waiting (and filing bugs) before he could upgrade the cloud to Juno. With the tooling in place, he had the green light. Check out Dave's experiences with his latest post: Upgrading Solaris Engineering's OpenStack Cloud.

As a reminder, OpenStack Juno is now in Oracle Solaris 11.2 SRU 10.5 onwards and also in the Oracle Solaris 11.3 Beta release we pushed out last week with some great new OpenStack features that we've added to our drivers.
