Abstract:In the event, CSDN reporter interviewed the OpenStack Foundation Chairman Clark Alan, Alan on the current open source cloud computing market and technology development and other topics to share their views.

Recently, the second session of the China open source Cloud Computing Conference held in Beijing, many well-known experts in the industry attended the meeting and share about cloud computing the latest achievements of innovation, to solve the project and successful experience, and reviewed the development and challenge of open source industry in 2015. In the event, CSDN reporter interviewed the OpenStack Foundation Chairman Clark Alan, Alan on the current open source cloud computing market and technology development and other topics to share their views.

OpenStack Foundation Chairman Clark Alan

Reporter: how do you see the development of China's open source cloud computing market?

Clark Alan:China's cloud computing market growth is strong, the momentum is very fierce.In the open source cloud environment, OpenStack has become the first choice for customers.In particular, the performance of China's developers in the open source community is also worthy of attention, in many areas has demonstrated a leadership position. Recently, a Chinese member of the board of directors of the latest OpenStack - Dr. Wang Qing from Intel. But he was not on behalf of the Intel into the board, but by the people of the community voted out.

Reporter: now look back and see, in the past 2015, what do you think OpenStack project has the big change?

Clark Alan:First of all, OpenStack has been proved to be a good application in the enterprise production environment, and a series of customer practice cases. In addition, the open source community has been growing, not only lies in the growth of the number of scale, but also includes community involvement (enterprise level) cooperation projects are also fruitful.

Reporter: what is the proposal for the production environment to migrate to OpenStack users? In the past, what successful experience or failure of the user experience?

Clark Alan: successful migration of enterprises have a common, a large number of users of community participation. The experience of failure, from a technical point of view, did not see many examples of failure. As a result, most of the failures are not due to technical reasons.Because business migration system covering all aspects of the product, including storage, network, and security, all levels of technology owners created one new information islands. These islands between each other without communication and communication, and openstack throughout the information island is cannot succeed, must put them through, through a shared platform in order to let openstack play a role.

Reporter: at present, a large number of components in the OpenStack is still in the development and testing environment, if the transition to the production environment, what do you think you need to do?

Clark Alan:OpenStack now has more than 30 components, a part of the standard has not yet reached the production environment, but the core components have been fully migrated to the production environment. Next, we will further with the developer and the customer to do the depth of communication, so that the entire OpenStack can better meet the standards of the production environment to deal with.

In addition, we are still actively trying to do one thing is to set up a special product team, responsible for research in the production environment, which are important elements to pay special attention to. In fact, engineers through the analysis found that OpenStack has not been too much loss in function, but in terms of continuity, stability, reliability and interoperability have yet to be improved.

Happily, not only is the open source community in an effort to allow OpenStack to meet the standard requirements of the production environment, in addition, such as SUSE manufacturers are also actively doing a lot of research and development. For example, SUSE recently launched High Availability SUSE (high availability) is a very successful outcome. Prior to the SUSE operating system has been used in the server for more than 10 years, and now successfully deployed it to the OpenStack above.

Reporter: with the increasing number of sponsors and community members, OpenStack how to balance the relationship between the community members, how to maintain the independence?

Clark Alan:First of all, the more the community members can reflect the diversity, the more able to avoid a single large, to make the organization can maintain neutrality. Second, the OpenStack community has a number of founding members, equivalent to being employed, their main responsibility is to safeguard the fairness and neutrality of the organization. For example, the founding member of a point like a commission for Discipline Inspection, they will to supervise the trademark to be used, if it is found that some vendors or members in the improper use of the trademark, they will point out and report to superior to correct.

In addition, director of openstack will this year has set up a special committee of diversification, to ensure that the organization and the open source community members come from different regions, different gender, different languages, different skills, composed of all the members of the rich and colorful.

Reporter: OpenStack how to prevent potential system security failure?

Clark Alan:Mainly from three levels to solve. First, any development of the code first to go through the audit verification, audit verification time will see if there is no one found this vulnerability, if any, will be able to find in time, put it up.

Second, assume that the code is already in use, and we will post some patches. If the follow-up found some security issues, the patch will continue to update.

Third, if the code is used in the production environment, or is the key task above, the security requirements must be very high, here is the choice of manufacturers. We recommend that we choose to have the strength of the manufacturers, and have the continuous technical support services, to provide support and services at any time.

For example, SUSE is a special care of a vendor, they OpenStack development of the software code will be through the layers of audit, and then do a detailed security analysis, and finally it as a commercial application solutions. In addition, it is also able to provide uninterrupted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24 x 7) technical support services, any time customers have problems can find them to provide technical services and support. In addition, there is a benefit, manufacturers such as SUSE, if the problems found in the process of technical support, they then will create a patch, and put the patch to the openstack community, it is tantamount to constantly added some new patch, if all the manufacturers to do the same, the security of the whole openstack will get more and more improvement.
