SuSE’s presentation (video) was deploying OpenStack using a SuSE port of Crowbar (including a reskinned UI)!
This is a significant for SuSE and Crowbar:
- SuSE, a platinum member of the OpenStack foundation, now has an OpenStack Essex distribution. They are offering this deployment as an on-request beta.
- Crowbar is now demonstrable operating on the three top Linux distributions.
SuSE is advancing some key architectural proposals for Crowbar because their implementation downloads Crowbar as a package rather than bundling everything into an ISO.
With the Hadoop 4 & OpenStack Essex releases nearly put to bed, it’s time to bring some of this great innovation into the Crowbar trunk.
