@Chris: pursue a report for Deltacloud

18 Mar 2015 [Marios S. Andreou / Rich]

Apache Deltacloud defines a web service API for interacting with cloud
service providers and resources in those clouds in a unified manner. In
addition, it consists of a number of implementations of this API for the
most popular clouds. It also provides an implementation of DMTF CIMI,
and tools around that API to help make it more easily consumable.

-- Overall activity in the past quarter --

Thanks very much to Chris Mattmann and Brett Porter for reaching out on
behalf of the board. So the reality of the situation is that none of the
current PMCs or committers have cycles to dedicate to Deltacloud. Given this
I believe the best course of action is to move Apache Deltacloud to the attic.

I have started a voting thread to this effect on the deltacloud private list
which closes on Wednesday 11 March 2015 @ 1200 CET. [1]

[1] Hey folks:

so I think it is pretty obvious that none of us have the cycles to look
this way any more. The board is asking about the progress of the project
since (unsurprisingly) the last few board reports have reported no
progress. At this point I am heavy-heartedly proposing that we retire
the project to the Apache Attic [1] and simultaneously dissolve this PMC.

Vote:

Move Apache Deltacloud to the Apache Attic [1] (where 'move' means
putting into motion the process @ [2])
*and*
Dissolve the Apache Deltacloud PMC,

Vote closes Wednesday 11th March 2015 @ 1200 CET.

Thanks everyone for your guidance, efforts and contributions to
Deltacloud.

all the best, marios

There has been relatively little activity this quarter. The mailing list
continues to see some activity but it would appear the bulk of the PMC no
longer has the resources to dedicate the required attention (e.g. there
are still contributions pending approval - the latest in November 2014).

-- Issues for the board's consideration --

The Apache Deltacloud project has until recently been heavily sponsored by
Red Hat, in the form of full time engineers including travel budget and
a streamlined monthly testing and release cycle. Red Hat announced that
this support is being drastically reduced [1] so this is an interesting
period for the project. Furthermore, the project has recently elected a new
PMC chair as David Lutterkort was unable to continue in this position due
to other commitments.

It has been encouraging to see the continued interest with a daily trickle
of activity on the mailing list, irc channel and JIRA since the Red Hat
announcement. The biggest and most immediate impact is the change to the
release cycle - the monthly release cycle is currently unsustainable.
The next release date has not yet been determined though as PMC chair it
is my aim to encourage a release towards the end of the summer or early in Q4 2013.

Much work on bug fixes and improving the DMTF CIMI frontend exposed by a
Deltacloud server. Some interest in the OpenStack driver (work ongoing to
change the library used to talk to OpenStack services).

Next week (8-12 July) will see a revival of the Deltacloud community call
[4][5].

(Incubating since July 2010)

Deltacloud is a cross cloud abstraction API that allows management of
resources (compute and storage) across different IaaS cloud computing
providers using a single, open API. At present Deltacloud supports
management of Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Gogrid, Rimuhosting, Terremark, RHEV-M,
vSphere, IBM SBC, Eucalyptus, Opennebula compute resources, as well as
Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Eucalyptus and Rackspace Cloudfiles storage
resources.

The last three months have been characterized by ceaseless work towards our
0.4.0 release, which has now been posted as a release candidate.

We also voted three new committers in during that time.

We are in the process of preparing for graduation to a TLP under the Board;
hopefully, a resolution will be posted before the August Board meeting.

Improvements/Fixes/Additions included in upcoming 0.4.0 release (and since
the last report) include:

Server:
* deltacloudd: new option --drivers to list all drivers
* deltacloudd: new options --ssl, --ssl-key and --ssl-cert to
enable HTTPS support
* API entrypoint reports features in JSON
* unify response behavior: any operation returning a 201 Created also
sets the Location header to point to the new resource; ensure the
status for an operation is the same regardless of output format
* Add type to public addresses; type can be one of 'ipv4', 'mac', 'vnc',
and 'hostname'
* Complete overhaul of the HTML UI, now uses jquery-mobile
* Response status for attach/detach storage is now 202 (instead of 302)
* Response status for get/set blob metadata is 204 No Content
* Response status for (un)register with load balancer is 204 No Content
* The user_name feature now reports the permissible length of the name
as the 'max_length' constraint
* Add Date header to responses as per RFC 2616
* New collection 'firewalls' for managing sets of firewalling rules
* split server/config/drivers.yaml into individual files so each driver
can be packaged separately; gives deployers better choice of what
drivers they want enabled
* Numerous bug fixes and improvements to the test suite
* Drivers
+ Condor
- new driver to run a simple cloud based on the Condor grid scheduler
+ EC2
- Fix bug in reboot instance so that the details returned are those
of the stopped instance, not some random instance
- Support getting and updating blob metadata
- support destroying images
- support firewalls (security groups)
- do not support user_name anymore; instance tagging is too fragile
in EC2 to be used reliably for this
- do not support registering an instance with a load balancer upon
creation anymore
- stream blob PUT to backend (requires thin)
- support attaching EBS snapshot to instance upon creation (feature
'attach_snapshot')
- support elastic IP's
+ Eucalyptus
- support firewalls (security groups)
- support elastic IP's
+ Gogrid
- when retrieving single realm, make sure we return the right one
- correctly capture load_balancer params
- report a listener if load_balancer has no instances
+ Mock
- support destroying images
+ Rackspace
- support destroying images
- stream blob PUT to backend (requires thin)
+ RHEV-M
- support creating and destroying images
- report VNC address of instances
- can use Audrey's confserver to fetch IP of an instance
+ vSphere
- turns a VMWare vSphere installation into a cloud
- driver stateless, state is stored in vSphere's data store in
'deltacloud' folder
- images are template VM's
- single HWP, whose max_cpu and max_memory are based on available
cpus and memory across all vSphere hosts
- support data injection via user_data and user_iso (upload entire
ISO image) For both, instance gets virtual CD-ROM with injected
data

Client:
* make authentication info for instances available
* retrieve type and address for public addresses of an instance
* deltacloudc: allow specifying bucket location when creating a bucket

Site:
* Major rewrite of REST API docs, covers the entire API now
* Add libdeltacloud API docs

(Incubating since July 2010)

Deltacloud is a cross cloud abstraction API that allows management of
resources (compute and storage) across different IaaS cloud computing
providers using a single, open API. At present Deltacloud supports
management of Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Gogrid, Rimuhosting, Terremark,
RHEV-M, Opennebula compute resources, as well as Amazon S3, Microsoft
Azure and Rackspace Cloudfiles storage resources.

Recent Activity:

Release 0.2.0 is imminent and includes:

 * Dynamically select driver through the X-Deltacloud-Driver HTTP header;
   allow passing in driver-specific endpoint with the
   X-Deltacloud-Provider header
 * New 'load_balancers' collection, supported for EC2 and GoGrid
 * Allow creation/deletion of blobs (S3, CloudFiles, Azure)
 * Return HTTP status 405 when trying to perform an action on a instance
   that is not available
 * Drivers
   + EC2
     - security_group and public_ip features for instance creation
     - switched to aws gem
   + GoGrid: now have two hardware profiles
   + RHEV-M: completely rewritten; now uses RHEV-M REST API, not Powershell
   + Mock:
     - support 'keys' collection
     - switch to storage-only driver by setting provider to 'storage'

Next Steps:

Aiming for a mid March release of 0.3.0 - main issues addressed will
be creation of images from uploaded bits (in cloud storage),
firewalling and improved support for blob streaming.

17 Nov 2010

Deltacloud defines a web service API for interacting with cloud service
providers and resources in those clouds in a unified manner. In addition, it
consists of a number of implementations of this API for the most popular
clouds.

Infrastructure:

 * Hudson configured to trigger build after commit
(https://hudson.apache.org/hudson/job/apache-deltacloud-core/)

Latest activity:

 * Deltacloud API was proclaimed as stable and version 0.1.0 was released
 * A new EC2 driver for Deltacloud API (in review process)
 * Client improved to be more stable
 * Deltacloud API is now Ruby 1.9 compatible

Current issues:

 * Support for buckets (streaming)

18 Aug 2010

Deltacloud is a cross-cloud RESTful abstraction API. The are currently no
issues requiring board attention.

Recent activity:

 * Grant of initial code finalized: code relicensed under ASL2.0, iCLA's of
all contributor's on file, cCLA from Red Hat for initial submission also on
file, code imported to subversion
 * First draft of an API specification sent to developer's list
 * Initial content for project website in svn; need to clear up some
technical hurdles to make it live
 * Added support for executing commands and copying files into cloud
instances
 * Work on adding blob storage to API under way
 * Work on publishing reports from a private Hudson instance to a public
site (since it seems we can't get access to Apache's Hudson)
 * Numerous bug fixes and smaller enhancements

Next steps:

 * Continue work on API additions
 * Finalize initial API (including the spec)
 * Prepare for an initial release with a stable API

Top 2/3 Issues before graduation:

 * Make an Apache release
 * Make a diverse community of active committers
 * Improve our website with tutorials and "getting started" content.

Deltacloud entered the incubator in 2010-05-17.

- Project basically setup  (info for 3 people still being worked to get ICLA
correctly listed) - Code has been imported. - Working to get Code Grant on
file - Project active, commits and mail list discussions have started. - The
website has not been setup yet.


= Empire-db =

Empire-db is a relational data persistence component that aims to overcome
the difficulties, pitfalls and restrictions inherent in traditional Object
Relational Management (ORM) approaches. Empire-db is on the Apache Incubator
since July 2008.

Issues to address in the move towards graduation:

We are still aware of the fact that we need to do more advertising of
Empire-db on major development forums like e.g. http://TheServerSide.com in
order to raise attention for the project.

Community development since the last report

The community has remained stable and several users questions have been
answered on the user list. We still receive positive feedback from users but
had no contributions from new users in the past quarter.

Project development since the last report

After having received approval from the incubator PMC we have published
our 2.0.6 release and updated our website accordingly. There are plans for
improvements and open issues on our list but all committers were too busy to
make significant contributions in the past quarter. We hope that we can
deliver improvements to the projects in the upcoming quarter.
