    Exclamation [EN] HPE abandona OpenStack

    HPE still supports OpenStack in its Helion cloud program, but it's cutting way back on how much it's spending on helping create OpenStack.

    Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
    October 26, 2016

    HPE has had a... curious cloud history. It's tried the public cloud, that failed. It's supported several different cloud platforms, and now, having been a major OpenStack cloud developer, it's backing off devoting major programming resources to OpenStack.

    Mind you, OpenStack is still offering and supporting the OpenStack cloud under the Helion brand. Indeed, HPE just released the latest version of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud, Helion OpenStack 4.0.

    But, even as Mark Interrante, HPE's senior vice president of cloud, announced at the release announcement at OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, Spain, "OpenStack has become mainstream," everyone knew HPE had laid off most of its OpenStack development team.

    Mark Shuttleworth, Canonical and Ubuntu's founder, said "HPE has laid off their entire OpenStack team, those were the guys who were pushing Ironic, Trove, and Heat." These are three important OpenStack components.

    Earlier, it became public that HPE had laid off most of the staff behind Stackato, HPE's Docker-based Platform-as-a-Service.

    Stackato itself is being sold to SUSE. The Linux company, in turn, is owned by Micro Focus. HPE is also spinning off/merging its non-core software assets with Micro Focus. What does it all look like when this corporate game of musical chairs is done?

    Well, according to Sarwar Raza, HPE's VP of Network Function Virtualization (NFV), "HPE will still have OpenStack engineers." But, SUSE will be taking the lead in OpenStack Helion development. In short, "The only thing that's changing is where all the bits are coming from. Helion is still our private cloud offering."

    In particular, Helion has done well for HPE in the teleco market. Telecommunication operators are finding OpenStack suits their needs well for software-defined networking (SDN).

    But, what does that mean for Stackato, Ironic, Trove, Heat, and the HPE software engineers who worked on them? Good question.

    SUSE executives said they were looking for more engineers. As for the projects, well, maybe we don't need an OpenStack specific database-as-a-service, Trove. But, Heat, an orchestration program, and Ironic, OpenStack on bare metal, those strike me as being a wee bit more important.

    Mark Shuttleworth on OpenStack: HPE layoffs prove 'big tent' approach has failed

    Speaking with Computerworld UK, the Canonical product lead and Ubuntu founder explains what he believes is occurring with OpenStack and where it's going next

    Tamlin Magee
    October 26, 2016

    Bullshit-as-a-Service

    Ubuntu founder and product lead at Canonical Mark Shuttleworth says he feels validated by his earlier claims that the expansion of OpenStack projects – known as the ‘big tent’ approach - would collapse and that the community needs to focus on its core services.

    Speaking with Computerworld UK at the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, Shuttleworth claims that the layoffs from the OpenStack teams at both HPE and Mirantis lend further credibility to his theory that all the surrounding bolt-ons, which he previously described as ‘bullshit as a service' in an interview earlier this year, were detracting from OpenStack's reputation.

    "I think it's reality check time for OpenStack and that's long overdue," he says. "Somewhat controversially, we have long said OpenStack needs to focus on the fundamentals – we have chosen to focus on the fundamentals, which is virtual networks, virtual compute, virtual disks, virtual machines. That aspect of OpenStack and the people who focused on that are doing very well.

    "But there's another element of OpenStack, which was essentially a lot of projects really driven by a single vendor, which was hoping to save themselves by getting a cloud story," he continued. "My rule of thumb is if you're not [creating] virtual networks, compute or disks, and you can't survive on AWS, you are never going to survive on OpenStack. That's the bullshit as a service story, and look what's happened since.

    "HPE has laid off their entire OpenStack team, those were the guys who were pushing Ironic, Trove, Heat. That was never going to work. Mirantis laid off 300 OpenStack developers – those were the guys pushing Savanna, pushing Solum, pushing bullshit as a service.

    "If I had advice for OpenStack at large, it's get rid of BS as a service," he continues. "The other stuff taints the reputation of OpenStack. When Heat fails, everybody can easily think OpenStack is failing- it's not, it's just bullshit as a service that's failing.

    "When Trove fails, everyone thinks OpenStack isn't going to work. No, it's just Trove that isn't working. Those things don't matter. So if I could counsel the community and the Foundation it would be finally, for heaven's sakes, just be clear that this stuff in the middle, that's OpenStack, everything else doesn't matter."

    Shuttleworth goes on to say that OpenStack as a whole is doing "great" and markedly becoming more scalable – with better quality, reliability and performance as it continues to mature in the IaaS space.

    "But there's the sort of, oh my god, reality check happening all around the periphery as people realise that what customers want is the basics done really well at a really great cost," he says. Shuttleworth adds that a lot of the intrinsically valuable problems to solve are in reducing complexity towards everyday work – backing up data to the cloud, fixing broken disks, safely rebooting a hypervisor, realigning IP addresses in a virtual network, and so on.

    "If you do these things the old fashioned way with Puppet, Chef and Ansible, they can be incredibly expensive because now you need the experts for everything," he says. "If you do them with Juju and Charms, you're sharing the cost of operational code with everybody else using those Charms."

    According to Shuttleworth, there are parallels that can be drawn between the rise of software like OpenStack and the evolution of ever-increasing amounts of big data. Over the years, data itself slowly got bigger and bigger, and more rich and diverse, he says, and the complexity of it all grew until businesses understood they needed new ways to interpret, understand and use it.

    "In the same way, the complexity of software has grown steadily and smoothly – microservices, cloud-scale, cloud-native architectures, none of these things happened overnight," he says. "There has always been one extra service – Hadoop went from two pieces of software to four pieces of software to seven pieces of software. OpenStack went from five pieces of software to nine pieces of software, all one step at a time.

    "But there comes a point when the old way doesn't work anymore, and that's big software," he explains. "OpenStack was just the first. Now we have Kupernetes, we have IBM Watson, all the machine learning stuff – all the interesting stuff on the cloud is big software. You can't be successful with it by just understanding one part and automating one part.

    "You have to understand 20 parts, and you have to understand them now because in six months they will have updated – it is the integration burden," he says. "If you do it the old way, that means hiring, training, writing code. That takes time. If the software has changed by the time you get through that process you are by definition failing."

    While he remarks that, with companies like HPE you "reap what you sow" Shuttleworth is overwhelmingly positive about the OpenStack landscape and the community. It is clear, he says, that OpenStack has won the battle in terms of the open platform – and it's also evident that the big players in the entire technology industry are rallying behind it as a platform.

    "The experts are here," he says. "If you think about a VM on-demand – I think Intel, IBM Power, ARM, those are the experts for how you should get a VM on demand. And they are here. If you think of disks on demand – EMC, Seagate, they are here. And if you think of networks on demand, Cisco, Brocade, Broadcom, they are here."

    What is next for OpenStack in an environment that is trending towards multi-cloud, and where does OpenStack sit in the wider cloud landscape – next to public cloud, and so on?

    "When you look at a public cloud vendor, it's difficult to disentangle the infrastructure as a service piece from the software as a service piece," Shuttleworth says. "OpenStack will never beat the public clouds at the software as a service piece, because you're falling further and further behind every year.

    "Whereas the infrastructure as a service piece – once you get a VM of any operating system, on demand, attached to any network with any kind of disk, you are done," he explains. "So even though it's kind of late, OpenStack will be the internal infrastructure as a service of choice.

    "I think it will sit alongside Azure Stack," he says. "I think Microsoft is very credibly focused on delivering a private version of its public cloud – so I think OpenStack and Azure Stack will sit next to each other very credibly inside the organisation. I'm pretty confident that for infrastructure as a service, OpenStack will be fine."

    HPE gears its updated Helion OpenStack distribution toward telcos

    HPE e a torcida do Flamengo.

    Frederic Lardinois
    October 27, 2016

    HPE is in an interesting position. Now that it has shut down its Helion public cloud business, its main focus is on its private and managed cloud services, which center around the open source OpenStack cloud platform that’s pretty much the de facto standard for building private clouds now.

    HPE launched version 4.0 of its Helion OpenStack platform for enterprises this week. With this release, the company is emphasizing OpenStack’s readiness for the telco business, but the launch also comes at a time when HPE has laid off large parts of its OpenStack team and is actually looking to combine some of its efforts with those of SUSE’s. Telcos are a bright spot in the OpenStack ecosystem right now, though, so putting its emphasis on this vertical may just breathe some new life into HPE’s own efforts.

    HPE’s Sarwar Raza, the VP of product management for its network function virtualization (NFV) business, told me that a lot of the work that went into this new release focused on performance and making operating a Helion cloud easier. Unsurprisingly, Helion 4.0 is, in his view, a carrier-grade platform that is stable, performant and dependable enough for telcos.

    “Telcos will drive the next generation of OpenStack,” Raza told me. “The key thing to keep in mind is that telcos move slowly. They are regulated — there are a lot of financial and legal stressed on them. Once they all get aligned around something and they are not pulling in lots of different directions, there is a lot of momentum there.”

    He admitted that the actual adoption from enterprises is still small, though, but he believes that telcos will almost naturally gravitate toward OpenStack as they look at getting ready for their 5G deployments (and because they don’t want to be dependent on a single vendor and will instead opt for an open platform like OpenStack).

    NFV, which lets telcos move many of their networking services from expensive proprietary hardware into software that runs on standard servers, is becoming one of the “killer use cases” for OpenStack, Raza believes. The new release was pre-tested with about 50 partners and offers OpenStack operators all of the features available in OpenStack’s Mitaka release from about six months ago (most vendors stay about one version behind the open source release cycle but, like HPE, often backport some of the newest features to their distribution, too).

    Given the slow sales cycle in the telco world, it’ll be interesting to see where HPE Helion (and, to be fair, HPE as a whole) goes from here. Telcos are clearly one of the fastest growing verticals for OpenStack right now (and many of those looking into OpenStack are also in the fast-growing Chinese market), though, and HPE is clearly trying to capitalize on that.

    Alguns trezentos

    Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
    October 25, 2016

    ...

    Renski confirmed, "Post acquisition of TCP Cloud [a Kubernetes deployment company] we went through restructuring and, indeed, have chosen to wind down a number of engineering investments that we didn't feel were aligned with our focus of delivering an operations-centric OpenStack distribution through a build-operate-transfer model. As a result, some engineers were moved to different groups while some others have been let go. We went through the whole exercise super-fast and probably could have handled internal communications better; guess some of this is now floating out as negative and exaggerated rumors."

    For the former employees there is also one bit of good news. Almost every company at OpenStack Summit is looking for OpenStack engineers. These good people won't stay unemployed for long.

    Rivals Red Hat, Mirantis Announce Partnerships

    Sean Michael Kerner
    2016-10-21

    Red Hat and Mirantis both announced large agreements this week that bring their respective OpenStack technologies to carrier partners. The news comes ahead of the OpenStack Summit that kicks off in Barcelona, Spain, on Oct. 24.

    Red Hat announced on Oct. 19 that it has a new OpenStack partnership with telco provider Ericsson.

    "Ericsson and Red Hat recognize that we share a common belief in using open source to transform the telecommunications industry, and we are collaborating to bring more open solutions, from OpenStack-based clouds to software-defined networking and infrastructure, to customers," Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager of OpenStack at Red Hat, told eWEEK.

    From a practical standpoint, the Red Hat-Ericsson alliance means the two vendors will collaborate in upstream communities such as OpenStack, OPNFV and OpenDayLight; they will provide solution certification and joint offerings, including certifying Ericsson's portfolio of solutions on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenStack Platform; and Ericsson will expand its network-functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure to include Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

    Ericsson alliance with Red Hat isn't its first foray into OpenStack. In 2014, Ericsson inked a deal with Red Hat rival Mirantis, which at the time was one of the largest OpenStack deals ever made—a five-year deal to deploy Mirantis carrier-grade OpenStack software in the Ericsson cloud software platform.

    Boris Renski, co-founder of Mirantis, said Ericsson is pursuing a multi-VIM (virtual infrastructure manager) strategy.

    "Despite their Red Hat announcement, [Ericsson] still remains a Mirantis partner and user of Mirantis OpenStack," Renski told eWEEK. "However, as is the case with most everybody in this industry, they look to provide their customers with choice when it comes to VIM platforms they integrate with as opposed to locking every customer to Mirantis OpenStack exclusively."

    Renski added that Mirantis is not working exclusively with Ericsson in telco either.

    "We welcome this move by Ericsson as it promotes customer choice and are confident that telcos will continue choosing our products based on merit and quality," Renski said.

    On Oct. 20, Mirantis announced a telco alliance of its own with NTT Communications. The NTT agreement is a partnership to jointly offer a managed OpenStack offering (Mirantis on the software, NTT on the hardware) and have it off-premises in NTT Com data centers, said Jim Sangster, Mirantis' senior director of Solutions Marketing. NTT Com has 140 locations across Asia, the United States and Europe.

    "We'll be offering Mirantis Managed OpenStack in all of NTT Com's data centers," Sangster told eWEEK. "The partnership is indefinite, and the size of deployments will be based on the joint customers we obtain over time."

    Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth predicts total collapse of OpenStack 'big tent'

    Shuttleworth has described the vast majority of vendors touting their work with OpenStack as “bullshit as a service” – and warned that the ‘big tent’ to which they belong is due for collapse.

    Tamlin Magee
    April 27, 2016

    The expansion of OpenStack to include a wider range of development projects – known as the ‘big tent’ approach – will fall by the wayside as it becomes the platform of choice for private clouds, says Canonical founder, Mark Shuttleworth.

    “Most of these bullshit as a service big-tent things are going to die and go away,” he said. “What will remain is core infrastructure as a service. It is extremely important for every CIO. It is a foundational piece on which private cloud and public cloud will be essentially balanced against one another.”

    Shuttleworth likened the growth of vendor interest in OpenStack to the dotcom boom and bust, with the open source platform emerging leaner and more focused.

    “It’s a bit like the dot com bomb,” Shuttleworth said. “'The internet will fail!' No, it didn’t. A whole bunch of stories failed, mythology failed, but the internet kept going. It’s become the de facto standard. Very similarly, a lot of the mythology around the ‘big tent’ of OpenStack will go bust.

    “All the things people say next year will be great – will die. That’s healthy. That’s a cleaning out of focus on what matters.”

    Canonical’s OpenStack platform on Ubuntu is winning the company business, and a re-focusing of clarifying OpenStack’s core proposition could well win it more.

    He insists that the heart of OpenStack is “very important” and is “doing very well”.

    “We’re able to show a very quick return on investment to large organisations looking for internal infrastructure as a service," said Shuttleworth. "And we're also able to show quick engagement with their developers, and productivity gains effectively for their development teams, and show comparable economics.”

    “The real question is can people stand up an internal OpenStack cost-effectively.”

    He also floats the idea that there is perhaps more to the elevator pitch of avoiding vendor lock-in than the vendors themselves are admitting.

    “Vendors will play a game where they say: ‘oh, you’re not locked in, it’s all open’ - but the truth is, if your developers are writing to an API you can only get internally, you’re locked in to your internal IT. No one wants that.”

    Shuttleworth believes the reality of OpenStack adoption moving forward will be driven by multiple clouds, before adding: “Go ask a CIO.”

    What next for OpenStack, then, if the “circus” tent – as Shuttleworth puts it – is due for a collapse? He believes there will be a confidence crisis and a blame game.

    When asked about the importance of integration between OpenStack and AWS, he said that “part of the collapse of this bubble of bullshit will be a blame game saying OpenStack failed”.

    “[People will say] 'OpenStack did the wrong thing, OpenStack made the wrong choices, OpenStack should have copied the AWS APIs',” he said. “That’s all these guys saying ‘we’re not getting what we thought we would get so it’s his fault'. It’s not.”

    “Part of that blame game will be an existential crisis over APIs but it doesn’t really matter. If you put yourself in the mind of a CIO you must commit – they are committing to working across multiple clouds. Having AWS and Azure makes sense: once you do that, having OpenStack as well is not hard.”

    “I think the API ship has sailed, there were smarter decisions that could have been made five years ago, we’re all human – it doesn’t matter.”

    HPE may sell its OpenStack Helion software assets

    Suse is seen as the most likely target to buy HPE’s cloud assets.

    Brandon Butler
    Nov 1, 2016

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Mirantis - two of the most instrumental companies in the open source cloud computing project OpenStack - have each laid off employees in recent weeks, according to the companies.

    The full extent of the layoffs at HPE is unknown but ComputerWorldUK last week quoted Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth as saying that HPE had laid off their “entire OpenStack team.” An official with HPE confirmed there has been a restructuring but would not say how many OpenStack workers were cut, adding that Shuttleworth’s statement is exaggerated.

    Shuttleworth also said that Mirantis cut about 300 OpenStack developers, but the company’s co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Boris Renski says the number of cuts at the company is less than 100.

    Officials from the OpenStack Foundation – who are in charge of developing the open source code that makes the project – would not comment on the layoffs specifically but said they’re not indicative of weakness within the open source community, which they say is healthy and growing.

    HPE’s tumultuous two years

    A spokesperson for HPE confirmed there were cuts made in mid-October as part of a “company-wide strategy to give HPE the needed workforce to be a more nimble customer and partner-centric company.” Spokesperson Erik Denny added that reports that HPE cut all of its OpenStack employees was incorrect; the company still employs OpenStack technical experts, he says.

    Sources familiar with the layoffs at HPE says the cuts have been motivated by multiple factors. First, there’s been a broad restructuring since the November 2015 split of Hewlett Packard Enterprise from the consumer and printer company HP Inc. In April of 2016 HPE announced a spin-off/merger of its non-core software assets with Micro Focus as part of an $8.8 billion deal, which caused a new shakeup of employees.

    A source close to HPE says that since that deal was announced most of the workers in the company's platform as a service (PaaS) business and IaaS cloud business have been laid off. The source, who would only speak on the condition of anonymity, said there are rumors within the company that HPE may sell its OpenStack Helion software assets but continue to white-label market them. Suse, a Linux distribution company which has its own OpenStack distribution, is seen as the most likely target to buy HPE’s cloud assets. Earlier this year HPE announced that Suse was it's "preferred" Linux partner and that the companies would work together on OpenStack.

    Mirantis cuts stem from acquisition

    The cuts at Mirantis happened after the company acquired TCP Cloud, a company that offered a hosted version of the open source cloud that it sells to customers as a service. Following that acquisition Renski said there was a need to “balance pure software engineering culture with operations expertise.”

    Two groups at Mirantis were impacted by the cuts. The Fuel project, which made a simple OpenStack installer, is being re-architected to focus on “infrastructure as code,” Renski said. A second group of employees who focused on an internal PaaS project will shift to work on growing the company’s support for the open source container orchestration project Kuberentes. “We are not abandoning OpenStack and we are not exiting (the) OpenStack distribution business,” Renski wrote in an email.

    What it means for OpenStack

    HPE and Mirantis have been two of the most influential companies in the OpenStack community. In 2015 workers from HPE and Mirantis were the top two contributors of new OpenStack code. In the latest release named Octa that will be available next year, HPE dropped to contributing the sixth most amount of code to the project, according to the website Stackalytics.com. Mirantis’ contributions have dropped from contributing 19% of the code in the Newton release this year to 12% for next year’s Octa release.

    OpenStack Foundation Director Jonathan Bryce could not comment publicly on the layoffs, but said the overall OpenStack project is healthy and growing “We continue to add new companies and contributors,” he said. “You want to have a broad base of companies participate. The way they participate may shift and change, but that’s healthy for an open source project, which is measured by the sum of its parts not just by any individual or company.”

    Foundation Chief Operating Officer Mark Collier added that the latest release of OpenStack had a record number of contributors. “What we see at the macro level are ebbs and flows between different organizations over time,” he said. “For us, it’s about the aggregate more than just the headlines.”

    HPE announces Helion OpenStack 4.0 for enterprise and telco clouds

    Ray Shaw
    27 October 2016


    Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been a very strong supporter, and its employee Eileen Evans is a platinum director of the OpenStack Foundation and it contributes to the technical committees. It used the OpenStack Summit 2016 in Barcelona to announce the release of HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0, specifically developed and hardened for enterprise workloads across a variety of vertical industries, enabling communications service providers (CSPs) to deploy network functions virtualisation (NFV) applications.

    HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0 is based on OpenStack Mitaka and builds on HPE Helion OpenStack 3.0’s the expanded configurability and deployment options, tighter administrative controls and improved scalability while staying close to OpenStack trunk code. HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0 contains improvements in ecosystem integration, operations, security, scalability and application performance designed to help organisations deploy and manage new cloud technologies into their existing data centre while maximising operational efficiency

    Raj Thakur, HPE’s vice-president and general manager, Hybrid IT, Asia-Pacific and Japan, said, “OpenStack technology has become mainstream, but it can still be complex for the uninitiated. HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0 gives organisations the tools and support they need to build new and update existing applications, without requiring ITs direct involvement. We call it ‘more dev, fewer ops.’”

    New features and functionality include:

    • Extensive ecosystem integration – the addition of out-of-the-box integration with the HPE Distributed Cloud Networking software-defined networking (SDN) solution, as well as certified support and lifecycle management of third party network services, such as F5 Networks load balancers and leading SDN alternatives, including VMware NSX-v and Midokura MidoNet, providing customers with increased options when formulating their networking strategy.
    • Improved operations management – enhanced capacity reporting provides operators with visibility into how much compute and storage capacity is available, how much has been allocated and how much is being utilised to help “right-size” cloud resources.
    • Increased security – enhanced access controls provide new logging, auditing and monitoring features, reducing the attack surface of backend traffic.
    • Increased scalability and application performance – new virtual machine (VM) auto-scaling provides a policy-driven way to quickly add or remove resources to an application to handle spikes in demand and auto scale them back down; new native support for accelerated network interface controller cards from Intel and new data plane development kit (DPDK) support for high-performance data transfers between tenant VMs


    HPE also announced the general availability of HPE Helion Stackato 4.0, a cloud application platform providing developers with a container-based solution that includes a certified Cloud Foundry service, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflow and extensibility to connect to new and existing application services.

    Production-ready open source platform for the telco cloud

    HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0 provides CSPs with an open source-based cloud virtual infrastructure manager that meets their demanding performance and reliability requirements providing CSPs with the latest OpenStack advancements, including:

    • Increased performance – accelerated virtual switching helps ensure near line-rate performance, low latency and high throughput using DPDK support.
    • Open source flexibility – open, standard APIs provide the most up-to-date, feature rich release, reduce integration overhead costs and provide virtual network function application portability, helping CSPs avoid vendor dependency; built-in support for a wide variety of guest operating systems (e.g., major variants of Linux and Windows), compute options (e.g., KVM and VMware ESXi) and SDN (e.g., the new OpenDaylight based HPE OpenSDN Platform and HPE Distributed Cloud Networking) offers CSPs freedom of choice.
    • Broad partner ecosystem – nearly 50 pre-tested virtual network function solutions from HPE OpenNFV partners have been verified on HPE Helion OpenStack, helping CSPs to choose solutions that meet unique requirements and quickly launch them more easily and cost effectively.
    • Simplified deployment and management – integrated with HPE NFV System, a pre-integrated hardware and software bundle optimised for NFV workloads, and HPE operations support system/business support system (OSS/BSS) and Management and Orchestration (MANO) solutions, providing seamless integration into existing CSP networks.


    Thomas Sennhauser, HPE’s chief technology officer, Enterprise Group, said, “NFV has proven to be a killer use case for OpenStack. With HPE Helion OpenStack 4.0 as a foundation, carriers can count on always-on availability, reliability and performance for their cloud-based networks, along with the freedom of choice open source provides, helping avoid vendor lock-in.”
