An nova-compute-lxd update

Guest

on 26 October 2015

For the past couple of months, we have been working hard on adding new features to nova-compute-lxd (nclxd). The new features that have been added go beyond starting and stopping containers, to make it more useful for day to day use. An example is container migration:

The above video shows a container migrating between two nova-compute nodes. This feature is still very alpha, and the was deployed via the juju charm that we have. The environment is the following:

  • nova-compute-lxd 0.18
  • Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (15.10)
  • OpenStack Liberty
  • LXD 0.20

In the coming days I will be posting more content on how you can get yourself running nclxd with OpenStack.
