Eve: An OpenStack Composite and Hybrid Provisioning Service

OpenStack with its de-facto standard cloud fabric API and scheduling of elemental resources is an ideal platform for delivering advanced provisioning functionality using a template-based approach which simplifies and automates the job of infrastructure provisioning.  Furthermore, OpenStack’s standard API layer sets the stage for users with various cloud products that would benefit from hybrid provisioning across private and public clouds.

HP, which has already invested heavily in OpenStack as the underlying platform for our public cloud offering has also been investing in OpenStack as a platform for private cloud offerings as well.  As part of that investment HP Software has created an advanced provisioning technology, called Eve, which uses TOSCA standard semantics to express infrastructure templates that can be orchestrated against an OpenStack Nova API.  As part of the Eve advanced provisioning service, hybrid provisioning can be accomplished with common templates across public and private OpenStack API compliant clouds.

This session will illustrate how core OpenStack services were used as a foundation for new services that bring composite and hybrid provisioning to OpenStack.  Additionally, the session will outline how the new services are architected with the same principles around scalability and flexible deployment that OpenStack services themselves are created.
