    It’s been just over a year since Oracle first released an OpenStack version tailored for its namesake Linux distribution, and on Tuesday it followed up with a key update reworked specifically for today’s containerized world.

    Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux Release 2 is the first commercially available OpenStack implementation that’s packaged entirely as Docker instances, Oracle said, meaning that enterprises don’t need to install components individually.

    Based on the Kilo release of OpenStack that debuted in April, Oracle’s new OpenStack software includes support for new modules in the cloud platform, including Heat and Murano. It also uses MySQL Cluster to provide mission-critical Active/Active High Availability (HA), high performance and scalability for OpenStack’s Keystone core identity token and policy service.
