High Availability is a key concept in private and public cloud infrastructures. In this session, we explain techniques for integrating OpenStack with Pacemaker, the ubiquitous and universal high-availability stack for the Linux platform.

This presentation covers high availability for

  • core infrastructure services required by OpenStack, like MySQL and RabbitMQ,
  • OpenStack Compute (Nova),
  • OpenStack Image Service (Glance).

The session also touches upon considerations for redundant, replicated storage for OpenStack image and object storage.
