Oracle reworks OpenStack for a containerised world

Its new release for Oracle Linux is packaged entirely as Docker instances

It's been just over a year since Oracle first released an OpenStack version tailored for its namesake Linux distribution, and on Tuesday it followed up with a key update reworked specifically for today's containerized world.

Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux Release 2 is the first commercially available OpenStack implementation that's packaged entirely as Docker instances, Oracle said, meaning that enterprises don't need to install components individually.

Based on the Kilo release of OpenStack that debuted in April, Oracle's new OpenStack software includes support for new modules in the cloud platform, including Heat and Murano. It also uses MySQL Cluster to provide mission-critical Active/Active High Availability (HA), high performance and scalability for OpenStack's Keystone core identity token and policy service.

The software supports Cinder drivers for the Oracle All Flash FS Storage System and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance; Ceph Storage products are currently offered as a technology preview with Oracle Linux via the Ceph Object Gateway.

It's no secret that configuring, integrating and managing OpenStack can be a considerable challenge, and at least one major user -- UK-based BT Group -- recently made a public declaration of its frustration.

Other vendors have also stepped forward to try to ease some of the pain, including Red Hat.

Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux is now available as a free download. Full support is included in a paid premier support subscription.
