Project Overview: OpenStack Queuing and Notification Service ("Marconi")

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

Come to this session to get an update on Marconi, an OpenStack queuing and notification service described at http://wiki.openstack.org/marconi

Marconi aims to be pragmatic, building upon the real-world experiences of teams who have solid track records running and supporting web-scale message queuing systems.

Join Rackspace's Kurt Griffiths, Principal Architect, and Allan Metts, Engineering Director, to learn about the work that has been done and the path ahead -- including a description of the project, milestones, how it works, and an early demo.

As a message bus, Marconi allows cloud developers to use a REST API to easily distribute tasks to multiple workers across the components of an OpenStack  deployment. Publish-subscribe semantics are also supported, allowing notifications to be distributed to multiple listeners at once.

Users will be able to customize Marconi to achieve a wide range of performance, durability, availability, and efficiency goals.
