The CSC Agility Platform version 10.2.1 has been certified with OpenStack, specifically with the Liberty release. OpenStack has been a supported integration for awhile, but as with any third-party product we integrate with, they have regular releases, and the Agility Platform must re-certify each version so our customers can use the two products together.
With the Agility Platform OpenStack 5.0 Adapter, there are many features that are supported such as the ability for the adapter to discover network assets, models, locations, instances and images. The adapter supports the capability to provision, start, stop, restart and release instances for Windows or Linux. For more details on the Adapter and/or the specific update, please refer to the release notes and documentation.
Customers who have the Agility Platform installed within their own Data Center(s) can upgrade to the newest version of Agility and/or updated adapters. Please refer to the documentation to review which versions of the Agility Platform the Adapters have been certified against; an upgrade of Agility may be required.
For customers using CSC managed Cloud offerings, such as BizCloud or CSC Hybrid Cloud, please discuss with your account representative since those CSC Offerings follow a separate schedule for updating the platform, as well as the unique services they provide.
