QUEENS

19th March 2018

OpenStack Queens is now the sixteenth major release of the OpenStack Opensource cloud computing platform delivered on 19th March 2018. Hopper~Stack was updated within two weeks!!

Hopper~Stack have produced 7 versions of the automation. The LinuxBridges and OVS options are simple builds with a single network, compute, block, controller and two object-stores with the different options available for Neutron software defined networking.

We have also added Cinder Backup capabilities - again, update the configuration in the 'variables' file and you have Cinder Backup added to your enterprise delivery courtesy of Hopper~Stack !
