Among the major highlights of the OpenStack Summit last week was the live on-stage interoperability challenge. 16 different vendors participated in the challenge, including AT&T, Canonical, Cisco, DreamHost, Deutsche Telekom, Fujitsu, HPE, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Linaro, Mirantis, OSIC, OVH, Rackspace, Red Hat, SUSE and VMware.

As part of the on-stage interoperability challenge, participants used Ansible to orchestrate an architecture including network, storage and security groups. Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, said that vendors have been testing different workloads over the last several months in advance of the challenge.

While the on-stage interoperability represented a milestone for OpenStack, Bryce commented that the vendors will keep going and will add more complexity, tools and automation to the interoperability effort.

"We know that OpenStack is very powerful; what we haven't necessarily done is give people a good pattern for how they can take advantage of that and make sure it's repeatable on every OpenStack deployment," Bryce said.
