OpenStack Progress with Network Booting

In a previous update we shared details of how Chris Dent — a member of the OpenStack Technical Committee who, amongst other things, works on Nova Compute — was putting a Circumference 25 to use in OpenStack related experiments. In a new post over on his blog, Chris provides a brief update on configuring Raspberry Pi compute nodes to network boot from the front-end processor, so that they can be more easily managed.

In the post, Chris notes that, while more effort and debugging is required, “the Circumference made it relatively painless.” Adding, “having the hardware there in front of me works better with my brain: When I wanted to see if network activity was happening I looked at the box.”
