About this event

One of the fastest growing parts of OpenStack for the last release cycle is orchestration and platform-level capabilities. Different aspects of orchestration are represented by a number of the initiatives. During this session Mirantis engineers will talk about two projects from orchestration area which were initiated by Mirantis - Murano and Mistral.

Murano is a project which brings Application Catalog features to OpenStack cloud. Application Catalog provides an integration layer for 3rd party applications to be deployed via self-service UI for OpenStack cloud. The discussion, driven by Alex Tivelkov - a Murano technical lead, will cover Application Catalog use cases and their value for cloud users. Some of the use cases will be illustrated during the live demo followed by roadmap overview and Q&A.

As the second part of this meetup Mistral project will be presented. Mistral is a new initiative for workflow as a service implementation announced at the latest OpenStack summit in HK. Workflow as a service provides an ability to execute tasks in a distributed manner defined by simple DSL instead of writing a python code. Mistral provides features like event triggered tasks, scheduled tasks as a part of DSL. Renat Akhmerov - a Mistral technical lead will cover Mistral use cases, architecture overview and live demo for Mistral PoC followed by roadmap discussion and Q&A.

At the end of the meetup there will be a general Q&A session about integration between new and existing OpenStack services including Heat, Trove, Murano, Savanna and Mistral.
