OpenStack provides a platform for fault-tolerant, scale-out workloads—those that scale-out rather than scale-up. Due to the nature of these workloads, the application carries the burden of application availability rather than the underlying platform, and the SLA is upheld by multiple instances and has fault-tolerance built in. While this works for the applications themselves, the availability of underlying OpenStack services is still a concern for both end users and systems administrators. How do we guarantee OpenStack service availability, load-balance requests over multiple machines, and manage our single points of failure?
In this session, you’ll learn about the options available to maximize OpenStack uptime and mitigate the risks using Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack and its associated tools.
