Many companies are evaluating OpenStack at the small, proof-of-concept scale: a few compute nodes or VMs, a single headnode controller with an integrated database and amqp server. Everything is working, the management team is happy, and the order is given to make it bigger and make it go.

Scaling out a PoC to a full, highly available solution with dozens of compute nodes, a large shared filer for VM image storage, load-balanced clustered database, and a fully optimized AMQP server is a completely different environment and requires dedicated staff, robust monitoring and alerting, and knowledge to get the cloud to an operational state and keep it stable with a 6 month OpenStack release cycle.

We outline how the OpenShift Online Operations team deploys, maintains, and tunes the the Red Hat OS1 Internal OpenStack cloud environment, which currently is home to ~1,300 VMs used for Red Hat development, training, customer demos, and proof-of-concepts.
