In case you didn't make the in-person presentation the other week, we're doing a repeat online courtesy of vBrown Bag at 5:30 PDT.
We've all heard great things about ARM. This new line of processors and system architectures brings with it improved performance, a wider range of vendor offerings, lower power usage, and lower prices. However, is stock OpenStack ready for ARM? Using the stock OpenStack source and the installation instructions available on OpenStack.org, we built a Terraform configuration to deploy and performance test different hardware systems. We'll be reviewing the modifications required to the stock, upstream, OpenStack code based required for ARM support as well as why other OpenStack installers don't work on ARM.
