OpenStack

18 minute readExtensibilityDeveloper productivity

OpenStack is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing project by Rackspace Cloud and NASA. It is free, open-source software released under the terms of the Apache License. The mission of the OpenStack project is to enable any organization to create and offer cloud computing services running on standard hardware. The community’s first official release, code-named Austin, was made available just four months later with plans to release regular updates of the software every few months. OpenStack integrates code from NASA’s Nebula platform as well as Rackspace’s Cloud Files platform.

The EC-OpenStack plugin allows users to build a cloud by launching images and assigning metadata to instances, providing a more generic interface for managing resources. It interacts with OpenStack through the Compute API and Image API using PERL to perform the following tasks:

  • Create configurations with the connection information.

  • Perform actions on machines.

  • Deploy and delete servers.

  • Create and delete key pairs.

  • Create and delete floating IPs.

  • Create CloudBees CD/RO resources.

  • Create, attach, detach, extend, and delete volumes.

  • Create new images.

  • Create a snapshot of a server.

  • Do hard and soft reboots of a server.

  • Deploy, update, and delete HEAT orchestration templates.

This plugin provides two primary actions: Deploy and Cleanup, which work as a pair within a job.

The minimum CloudBees CD supported version is ElectricCommander 3.6.

For all parameter descriptions in this document, the required parameters are shown in bold italics.

Setting up the plugin configuration

Plugin configurations are sets of parameters that apply across some or all of the plugin procedures. They reduce repetition of common values, create predefined sets of parameters for end users, and store credentials securely. Each configuration has a unique name that is automatically entered in designated parameters in the procedures.

The Identity Service URL must have http or https followed by your server hostname or IP address.

Input

  1. Go to Administration > Plugins to open the Plugin Manager.

  2. Find the EC-OpenStack row.

  4. Click Create Configuration.

  5. To create an OpenStack configuration, enter the following information and click OK.

Remember that you may need to create additional configurations later.

Output

The OpenStack Configurations page now shows the new configuration.

You can also manage your OpenStack configurations on this page. Click Edit to modify an existing configuration or Delete to remove an existing configuration.
