Surviving the Worst: A Vision for OpenStack Disaster Recovery

In the Portland Summit, we surveyed various approaches to surviving a full data center disaster with OpenStack. Ensuring the ability to recover the technology infrastructure after a disaster is hard. It is hard since it requires geographic distribution, where data written by an application is replicated to the data center which will be used for recovery. OpenStack, as we described in the Portland Summit, is still immature in this respect. As an emerging IaaS platform that is seeing more and more enterprise use, we need OpenStack to evolve to easily support disaster recovery (DR). We believe OpenStack should provide a consistent mechanism to abstract the DR support built into many enterprise systems, and higher level automation, e.g., via Heat, should be able to easily configure these mechanisms into a DR solution appropriate for a workload. In this presentation, we will review basic DR concepts and present our OpenStack DR vision.
