We all know there are two sides to every story, and, in this session the theory and reality of highly available OpenStack clouds will be discussed. We will cover concepts from the OpenStack HA-Guide that provide active/active and active/passive configuration guidelines (the “theoretical” configuration of OpenStack HA) and walk-through HA considerations that Deutsche Telekom had to implement, and design, from a practical production grade OpenStack deployment perspective (the reality). We will also discuss the state (and implications) of a multiple availability zone and region setup.
