RDO Yoga Released

The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the RDO build for OpenStack Yoga for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Stream and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building private, public, and hybrid clouds. Yoga is the 25th release from the OpenStack project, which is the work of more than 1,000 contributors from around the world.

The release is already available on the CentOS mirror network:

The RDO community project curates, packages, builds, tests and maintains a complete OpenStack component set for RHEL and CentOS Stream and is a member of the CentOS Cloud Infrastructure SIG. The Cloud Infrastructure SIG focuses on delivering a great user experience for CentOS users looking to build and maintain their own on-premise, public or hybrid clouds.

All work on RDO and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.

Interesting things in the Yoga release include:

  • RDO Yoga is the first RDO version built and tested for CentOS Stream 9.
  • In order to ease transition from CentOS Stream 8, RDO Yoga is also built and tested for CentOS Stream 8. Note that next release of RDO will be available only for CentOS Stream 9.

The highlights of the broader upstream OpenStack project may be read via https://releases.openstack.org/yoga/highlights.html

TripleO in the RDO Yoga release:

Since the Xena development cycle, TripleO follows the Independent release model and will only maintain branches for selected OpenStack releases. In the case of Yoga, TripleO will not support the Yoga release. For TripleO users in RDO, this means that:

  • RDO Yoga will include packages for TripleO tested at OpenStack Yoga GA time.
  • Those packages will not be updated during the entire Yoga maintenance cycle.
  • RDO will not be able to included patches required to fix bugs in TripleO on RDO Yoga.
  • The lifecycle for the non-TripleO packages will follow the code merged and tested in upstream stable/yoga branches.
  • There will not be any TripleO Yoga container images built/pushed, so interested users will have to do their own container builds when deploying Yoga.

You can find details about this on the RDO Webpage

The Next Release Cycle
At the end of one release, focus shifts immediately to the next release i.e Zed.

Get Started
To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware, try an All-In-One Packstack installation. You can run RDO on a single node to get a feel for how it works.

Finally, for those that don’t have any hardware or physical resources, there’s the OpenStack Global Passport Program. This is a collaborative effort between OpenStack public cloud providers to let you experience the freedom, performance and interoperability of open source infrastructure. You can quickly and easily gain access to OpenStack infrastructure via trial programs from participating OpenStack public cloud providers around the world.

Get Help
The RDO Project has the users@lists.rdoproject.org for RDO-specific users and operators. For more developer-oriented content we recommend joining the dev@lists.rdoproject.org mailing list. Remember to post a brief introduction about yourself and your RDO story. The mailing lists archives are all available at https://mail.rdoproject.org. You can also find extensive documentation on RDOproject.org.

The #rdo channel on OFTC. IRC is also an excellent place to find and give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS devel mailing list and the CentOS and TripleO IRC channels (#centos, #centos-devel in Libera Chat network, and #tripleo on OFTC), however we have a more focused audience within the RDO venues.

Get Involved
To get involved in the OpenStack RPM packaging effort, check out the RDO contribute pages, peruse the CentOS Cloud SIG page, and inhale the RDO packaging documentation.

Join us in #rdo and #tripleo on the OFTC IRC network and follow us on Twitter @RDOCommunity. You can also find us on Facebook and YouTube.
