Description Krish Raghuram 2017-01-09 21:02:32 UTC
1. Description of feature:
In RSD, the node resources (CPU, memory etc.) are disaggregated within a rack, and need to be composed and made visible as logical nodes within OpenStack. There is a RSD software layer (codenamed Valence) that interfaces with the hardware and does the node composition. It provides an API that can be used by deployment tools like TripleO to request node composition, and then register them with the Ironic module as new bare-metal nodes

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
TripleO version in OpenStack Pike release

2. Business Justification:
  a) Why is this feature needed?
    RSD is a new architecture that realizes an agile infrastructure where the hardware resources can be pooled according to application needs. It also enables a more easily scaled infrastructure, so CPU, memory, network and storage resources can be added as needed, without the need to do complete replacements of nodes
  b) What hardware does this enable?
    RSD Server
  c) Is this hardware on-board in a system (eg, LOM) or an add-on card? 
  d) Business impact? N/A
  e) Other business drivers: N/A

5. Expected results: TripleO requests and registers RSD nodes with Ironic through a plug-in that uses the RSD software APIs
