OpenStack Kilo

The successor to the Juno release of the OpenStack open source cloud computing platform, OpenStack Kilo made its debut on April 30, 2015 as the eleventh release of OpenStack. Kilo is also included in the “Vivid Vervet” release of Canonical’s Ubuntu 15.04 Linux-based operating system, which was released in April 2015 as well.

Feature Enhancements in OpenStack Kilo

Among OpenStack Kilo’s most prominent additions are the Ironic bare-metal service, support for Dynamic Virtual Routing (DVR) in the Neutron networking component, and an expanded cloud federation capability in the OpenStack Keystone identity project. The new Ironic project runs as a service in OpenStack Kilo and ties into different hardware interfaces to directly manage bare-metal servers.

The follow-up to OpenStack Kilo carries the name OpenStack Liberty, and it made its official debut in October 2015.
