Introducing OpenStack Searchlight - Search Your Cloud at the Speed of Light!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Let’s be honest, OpenStack native service API’s leave a lot to be desired when it comes to consistency, capabilities, and performance. Wouldn’t it be better if you could use the power of Elasticsearch to find your instances, images, and other resources?

Say hello to Project Searchlight. Based on Elasticsearch, this newly approved OpenStack project has a mission to provide advanced and scalable indexing and search across multi-tenant cloud resources. Originally a part of Glance as the Catalog Index Service, its scope has been expanded to cover resources from all possible OpenStack services using a simple plugin mechanism.

Come learn more about Project Searchlight and see how you can take advantage of it today!  In this session we will provide an overview of the technology, how it is being integrated into Horizon, deployment concepts, and tips for helping you to get started in creating your own Searchlight plugin.
