Introducing SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 Beta 1
We are excited to introduce our very first SUSE OpenStack Cloud Public Beta Program with the release of SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 Beta 1 !
Please check out our main SUSE OpenStack Cloud Beta page for more information: https://www.suse.com/betaprogram/cloud-beta/
SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 focuses on four major topics:
- OpenStack Rocky Release: new upstream OpenStack content,
- Update to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4: The latest version of our core SLES 12 Operating System, which is at the end of it’s developpement phase. More information on SLES 12 SP4 at https://www.suse.com/betaprogram/sle-beta/
- New Day2 User Interface for Cloud Lifecycle Manager: this allow operators to use a grapical user interface to view the health of the cloud and to make operational changes
- IPv6 Support: IPv6 Support for Tenant and Control Plane Networks.
These functions will be phased into the various release within the beta timeline.
Notable changes for Beta 1
- Most OpenStack upstream packages are now based on the stable/rocky upstream branch (excepting those who still do not have a stable/rocky branch).
- OpenStack has been updated to the Rocky release.
- All nodes used for Administration and OpenStack are now using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4 as Operating System.
It comes with the following limitations:
- Crowbar: The Monasca and Magnum barclamps do not apply
- Cloud Lifecycle Manager: The switch to Rocky based packages broke CLM installation across the board, since the CLM has not been adapted for Rocky, yet
