I’m really happy to announce that i’m an Outreachy’s intern for this May-Aug round!
Outreachy is an internship program for underrepresented people in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community.
This program is a welcoming link that connects talented and passionate newcomers with people working in free and open source software and guides them through their first contribution. Through Outreachy, participants learn how exciting and valuable work on software freedom can be, while helping us to build a more inclusive community.
I’m sure all the visitors in this blog know OpenStack, but I decided to add some info to introduce my blog easily.
OpenStack is a community of a lot of companies and individual contributors with a Foundation providing governance and oversight. We all collaborate together to build cloud software that's free from vendor lock-in.
In a sentence, OpenStack provides open source software for building public and private clouds. What does that mean? We're a collection of open source projects that integrate to help organizations deploy and run clouds for computing, networking, and storage (both block storage for providing volumes to VMs and object storage for storing objects such as images or music files). With OpenStack, you can control large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.
There are currently several components of OpenStack: Compute, Object Storage, Identity, Dashboard, Block Storage, Network and Image Service.
My project: Cinder 😉
Block Storage (codenamed "Cinder") provides persistent block storage to guest VMs. This project was born from code originally in Nova (the nova-volume service described below). In the Folsom release, both the nova-volume service and the separate volume service are available
As I said, I’m collaborating with Cinder this period. Working with object storage is new for me, I’m still learning about all the Cinder stuff. On the other hand, I’m working on it so I’m going to post about it.
Don’t expect this blog be advanced but I hope this blog helps you!
