Subject: [rdo-list] [release] RDO Ocata packages released

The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the
RDO build for OpenStack Ocata for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Linux 7
and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
RDO is suitable for building private, public, and hybrid clouds. Ocata is
the 15th release from the OpenStack project (http://openstack.org), which
is the work of more than 2500 contributors from around the world (source

The RDO community project (https://www.rdoproject.org/) curates, packages,
builds, tests and maintains a complete OpenStack component set for RHEL and
CentOS Linux and is a member of the CentOS Cloud Infrastructure SIG (
https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud). The Cloud
Infrastructure SIG focuses on delivering a great user experience for CentOS
Linux users looking to build and maintain their own on-premise, public or
hybrid clouds.

All work on RDO, and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform,
is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.

Interesting things in the Ocata release include:

    - Significant Improvements (https://www.rdoproject.org/
blog/2017/02/testing-rdo-with-tempest-new-features-in-ocata/) to Tempest
and Tempest plugin packaging in RDO
    - The OpenStack-Ansible (https://docs.openstack.org/
releasenotes/openstack-ansible/ocata.html#new-features) project now
supports deployment on top of CentOS with the help of RDO-packaged

For cloud operators, RDO now provides packages for some new OpenStack

    - Tacker (https://docs.openstack.org/developer/tacker/): an ETSI MANO
NFV Orchestrator and VNF Manager
    - Congress (https://docs.openstack.org/developer/congress/
architecture.html): an open policy framework for the cloud
    - Vitrage (https://docs.openstack.org/developer/vitrage/): the
OpenStack RCA (Root Cause Analysis) Service
    - Kolla (https://github.com/openstack/kolla): The Kolla project
provides tooling to build production-ready container images for deploying
OpenStack clouds

Some other notable additions:

    - novajoin (https://github.com/openstack/novajoin): a dynamic
vendordata plugin for the OpenStack nova metadata service to manage
automatic host instantiation in an IPA server
    - ironic-ui (https://docs.openstack.org/developer/ironic-ui/): a new
Horizon plugin to view and manage baremetal servers
    - python-virtualbmc (https://github.com/openstack/virtualbmc)
VirtualBMC is a proxy that translates IPMI commands to libvirt calls. This
allows projects such as OpenStack Ironic to test IPMI drivers using VMs.
    - python-muranoclient (https://github.com/openstack/python-muranoclient):
a client for the Application Catalog service.
    - python-monascaclient (https://github.com/openstack/
python-monascaclient): a client for the Monasca monitoring-as-a-service
    - Shaker (http://pyshaker.readthedocs.io/en/latest/): the distributed
data-plane testing tool built for OpenStack
    - Multi-architecture support: aarch64 builds are now provided through
an experimental repository - enable the RDO 'testing' repositories to get

>From a networking perspective, we have added some new Neutron plugins that
can help Cloud users and operators to address new use cases and scenarios:

    - networking-bagpipe (https://docs.openstack.org/
developer/networking-bagpipe/): a mechanism driver for Neutron ML2 plugin
using BGP E-VPNs/IP VPNs as a backend
    - networking-bgpvpn (https://docs.openstack.org/
developer/networking-bgpvpn/): an API and framework to interconnect
BGP/MPLS VPNs to Openstack Neutron networks
    - networking-fujitsu (https://github.com/openstack/networking-fujitsu):
FUJITSU ML2 plugins/drivers for OpenStack Neutron
    - networking-l2gw (https://github.com/openstack/networking-l2gw): APIs
and implementations to support L2 Gateways in Neutron
    - networking-sfc (https://github.com/openstack/networking-sfc): APIs
and implementations to support Service Function Chaining in Neutron

>From the Packstack (https://github.com/openstack/packstack) side, we have
several improvements:

    - We have added support to install Panko and Magnum
    - Puppet 4 is now supported, and we have updated our manifests to cover
the latest changes in the supported projects

**Getting Started**

There are three ways to get started with RDO.

    - To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited
hardware, try the All-In-One Quickstart (http://rdoproject.org/Quickstart).
You can run RDO on a single node to get a feel for how it works.
    - For a production deployment of RDO, use the TripleO Quickstart (
https://www.rdoproject.org/tripleo/) and you'll be running a production
cloud in short order.
    - Finally, if you want to try out OpenStack, but don't have the time or
hardware to run it yourself, visit TryStack (http://trystack.org/), where
you can use a free public OpenStack instance, running RDO packages, to
experiment with the OpenStack management interface and API, launch
instances, configure networks, and generally familiarize yourself with
OpenStack. (TryStack is not, at this time, running Ocata, although it is
running RDO.)

**Getting Help**

The RDO Project participates in a Q&A service at ask.openstack.org (
http://ask.openstack.org), for more developer-oriented content we recommend
joining the rdo-list mailing list (https://www.redhat.com/
mailman/listinfo/rdo-list). Remember to post a brief introduction about
yourself and your RDO story. You can also find extensive documentation on
the RDO docs site (https://www.rdoproject.org/documentation).

The #rdo channel on Freenode IRC is also an excellent place to find help
and give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the  CentOS mailing lists (
https://lists.centos.org/) and the CentOS and TripleO IRC channels
(#centos, #centos-devel, and #tripleo on irc.freenode.net), however we have
a more focused audience in the RDO venues.

**Getting Involved**

To get involved in the OpenStack RPM packaging effort, see the RDO
community pages (https://www.rdoproject.org/community/) and the CentOS
Cloud SIG page (https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud). See
also the RDO packaging documentation (https://www.rdoproject.org/packaging/
