SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 Beta 7 is out!


We are happy to announce the release of SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 Beta 7!

Cloud Lifecycle Manager is available

Today we are releasing SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 CLM along with SUSE OpenStack Cloud 9 Crowbar! You will now find it in the download area:

  • SUSE-OPENSTACK-CLOUD-9-x86_64-Beta7-DVD1.iso the ISO to install Cloud 9 with Cloud Lifecycle Manager,
  • SUSE-OPENSTACK-CLOUD-CROWBAR-9-x86_64-Beta7-DVD1.iso the ISO to install Cloud 9 with Crowbar,

As a reminder SUSE OpenStack Cloud comes in two flavors:

  • SUSE OpenStack Cloud CLM is the default and uses the Cloud Lifecycle Manager (CLM). CLM comes with several advantages like template-based cloud definition with a built-in configuration checker, version control of cloud configurations using the industry standard git SCCS, and flexibility to extensively modify cloud configurations without requiring a cloud redeployment.
    For an introduction to Cloud Lifecycle Manager you can check out this blog post made for SUSE OpenStack Cloud 8:

  • SUSE OpenStack Cloud Crowbar is the continuation of prior SUSE OpenStack Cloud releases and uses the Crowbar Lifecycle Manager.
