The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the 
RDO build for OpenStack Queens for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Linux 
7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building private, 
public, and hybrid clouds. Queens is the 17th release from the OpenStack 
project, which is the work of more than 1600 contributors from around 
the world (source - http://stackalytics.com/ ).

The release is making its way out to the CentOS mirror network, and 
should be on your favorite mirror site momentarily.

The RDO community project 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. 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.

New and Improved
Interesting things in the Queens release include:

* Ironic now supports Neutron routed networks with flat networking and 
introduces support for Nova traits when scheduling
* RDO now includes rsdclient, an OpenStack client plugin for Rack Scale 
Design architecture
* Support for octaviaclient and Octavia Horizon plugin has been added to 
improve Octavia service deployments.
* Tap-as-a-Service (TaaS) network extension to the OpenStack network 
service (Neutron) has been included.
* Multi-vendor Modular Layer 2 (ML2) driver networking-generic-switch si 
now available of operators deploying RDO Queens.

Other improvements include:

* Most of the bundled intree tempest plugins have been moved to their 
own repository during Queens cycle. RDO has adapted plugin packages for 
these new model.
* In an effort to improve the quality and reduce the delivery time for 
our users, RDO keeps refining and automating all required processes 
needed to build, test and publish the packages included in RDO distribution.

Note that packages for OpenStack projects with cycle-trailing release 
models[*] will be created after a release is delivered according to the 
OpenStack Queens schedule.

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 an All-In-One Packstack installation. 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 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, 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 Queens, although it is running RDO.)

Getting Help

The RDO Project participates in a Q&A service at ask.openstack.org. We 
also have our users at lists.rdoproject.org for RDO-specific users and 
operrators. For more developer-oriented content we recommend joining the 
dev at lists.rdoproject.org mailing list. Remember to post a brief 
introduction about yourself and your RDO story. The mailng lists 
archives are all available at https://mail.rdoproject.org
You can also find extensive documentation on the RDO docs site.

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 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 and the CentOS Cloud SIG page. See also the RDO 
packaging documentation.

Join us in #rdo on the Freenode IRC network, and follow us at 
@RDOCommunity on Twitter. If you prefer Facebook, we’re there too, and 
also Google+.
