The Ubuntu OpenStack interoperability lab
Proven integration testing
The Ubuntu Openstack ecosystem is growing fast. This is good news. But as the options in cloud building grow, so does the task of ensuring interoperability between all the components.
At Canonical we have deep experience of conformity and interoperability testing between OpenStack and Ubuntu. To bring this to the wider ecosystem we’ve opened a lab dedicated to testing components’ interoperability. We want to be
able to present a wide a range of validated and supportable technical solutions.
A sophisticated testing and integration process
Our process tests current and future developments of OpenStack against current and future developments of Ubuntu Server and Server LTS. As the ecosystem has grown we’ve expanded it to include different guest OSs, hypervisors and software-defined networking (SDN) stacks. We’ve also worked with partners familiar with Ubuntu and OpenStack but unfamiliar with Juju, MAAS and charms, to help them more fully integrate their solution with Ubuntu.
The need for tested, integrated components has never been greater. So how do you get involved?
Involvement in the lab is through our Technical Partner Programme, which gives you all the benefits of ensuring your components are compatible with the latest release of Ubuntu OpenStack enabling you to get to market faster, with less cost.
Through the interoperability lab we can classify your solution as ‘Fully integrated’, give it prime positioning on our website, and prime positioning in the Juju Charm Store.
As a partner involved in the interoperability lab you can expect:
- Ongoing maintenance
- Test development
- Comprehensive interoperability testing
- Charm School
- A continuous cadence of testing and reporting
- Technical alignment to synchronise development timelines
- Marketing assistance including entry into our list of compatible solutions, joint revenue opportunities and support for joint solutions
- Training in maximising returns in your strategic relationship with Canonical
