Oracle gives users Liberty to easily manage cloud

News: Liberty is backed by more than 200 vendors, including Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, and Oracle.

By CBR Staff Writer

OpenStack has introduced the 12th version of its open source software for building clouds, named Liberty.

Liberty has several improvements over its predecessor Kilo, as it includes finer-grained management controls, performance enhancements for large deployments and more powerful tools for managing new technologies.

The new release is designed to better handle network function virtualisation, network virtualisation in its other forms and is ready to go with containers.

According to OpenStack, its cloud operators asked for enhanced manageability which led to the introduction of finer-grained access controls and simpler management features.

Liberty also adds role-based access control (RBAC) for the Heat orchestration and Neutron networking projects.

Liberty has made performance and stability improvements which include support to very large and multi-location compute deployments.

It has also added new features including an extensible Nova compute scheduler, a network quality of service (QoS) framework and enhanced LBaaS (load balancing as a service).

OpenStack Foundation Jonathan Bryce executive director said: "Liberty is a milestone release because it underscores the ability of a global, diverse community to agree on technical decisions, amend project governance in response to maturing software and the voice of the marketplace, then build and ship software that gives users and operators what they need.

" All of this happens in an open community where anyone can participate, giving rise to an extensible platform built to embrace technologies that work today and those on the horizon."
