OpenStack Grizzly


OpenStack will be upgraded to the next major stable release, called "Grizzly". In addition the new OpenStack "heat" and "ceilometer" incubation projects will be included.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 19 (and its Feature List)
  • Last updated: 2013-04-23
  • Percentage of completion: 100%

Detailed Description

OpenStack is an open source cloud computing platform. It lets you set up your own cloud infrastructure, similar to public clouds like Amazon EC2, Azure, etc.

In Fedora 18 OpenStack Folsom was packaged and in Fedora 19 we aim to package OpenStack "Grizzly", including both incubation projects "heat" and "ceilometer"

Grizzly is not released yet, but is scheduled to be released roughly over the same development period as Fedora 19, and we are working closely with upstream to ensure this happens.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora users will be able to deploy OpenStack clouds based on the latest version (Grizzly).


This is mainly packaging work, involving updating existing packages and including new dependencies in the distribution. There are other possible aspects including:

  • Support for PostgreSQL

How To Test

The Folsom Test_Day:2012-09-18_OpenStack was very beneficial, both in testing and in describing the features and processes involved with OpenStack. A similar day has been organised for Grizzly (Test Day:2013-04-02 OpenStack).

User Experience

Users will be able to install and upgrade to the OpenStack Grizzly release on Fedora 19 hosts.


Upgrades from Folsom to Grizzly may need significant upstream work to achieve. The new ceilometer project has dependencies on very new python projects that will need to be packaged too.

Contingency Plan

The parts of OpenStack that are ready will be included in Fedora. There is no special contingency plan required.
