OpenStack Queens Released

The OpenStack Foundation has announced the 17th release of OpenStack, dubbed Queens. OpenStack now powers some of the biggest public clouds in the world. According to a 451 Research survey, 60 percent of enterprise workloads will run in the cloud. The survey also reports that enterprise adoption of OpenStack is expanding in parallel, with enterprises in nearly all verticals and regions now running mission-critical workloads on OpenStack software.

Queens is well equipped with many new features to handle such workloads. It comes with Cinder multi-attach that enables operators to attach the same Cinder volume to multiple virtual machines (VMs). If one node goes down, the other takes over and has access to the volume. According to the OpenStack Foundation, this was one of the most-requested features in cloud environments.

The Queens release also includes significant enhancements to support emerging use cases such as machine learning, network functions virtualization (NFV), container integration and edge computing.
