New features in OpenStack Grizzly

There is a new Openstack released called Grizzly available. In this post I would like to share some info with you to answer the following questions:
  • What changed
  • What new features were implemented
  • What improvements were made 
Let's summarize first couple of facts we can confirm about Grizzly.
  1. For every new release there is a release note (for Grizzly here). As an example links to Nova related releases and blueprints check this Nova release notes and blueprints link.
  2. There are 2 webcasts (with video and slides) from Mirantis that discuss changes in Folsom and Grizzly.
The new video and slides from Mirantis for Grizzly are really informative: What’s new in OpenStack Grizzly. Some of the slides I found interesting for Nova and Quantum are copied below.
  • In Nova project there were many enhancements for VM placements and improvements for  large scale deployments support

  • New awaited features for network virtualization in Quantum project 

  • There were number of new vendor plugin announcements for Quantum to give people choice how to implement network virtualization. More info about Midokura (here) and Nicira (here) is available as well.
