The developers behind the OpenStack open source cloud computing project have released a new update with more than 70 new features and improvements. Codenamed Diablo, the release includes a new interface, a unified authentication management system and a number of improvements designed to improve scalability.
The improvements “make OpenStack easier to use and administer. And we’ve continued to improve for extreme scale,” said OpenStack’s Jonathan Bryce. “We’re not talking about [using OpenStack to run a] cloud of 100 servers or even 1,000 servers, but tens of thousands of servers. Other options out there aren’t really considering that scale.”
