Until now we’ve all faced a challenge in porting applications to run on OpenStack. Today we introduce a catalog of applications for OpenStack hosted by the Foundation at catalog.openstack.org
. Community members who have ported and tested apps can publish Glance Images, Heat Templates, and Murano App Packages to the catalog. The catalog provides the infrastructure for peer review and, in the near future, continuous integration testing. As of Kilo, Murano includes the ability to pull app packages directly from catalog.openstack.org
, including the Glance Images they depend upon, in a single simple command. When used with Murano, Catalog.openstack.org
provides a community-driven vehicle for quick and easy OpenStack application distribution and deployment.
