  • a description of what the particular project does and where its code lives
  • a brief explanation of the idea
  • the expected results
  • pre-requisites for working on the project encapsulated in the idea
  • if applicable, links to more information or discussions
  • mailing list or IRC channel for your application/library/module
  • mentor's name contact info

If you are not currently an OpenStack developer but have an idea for a proposal, get in contact with the relevant developers first.

Service Automation in OpenStack for File Sharing Application

Brief Explanation:

This project aims at creating a complete system with Automation in OpenStack (IaaS), Server Side Programming (PaaS) and Front End (SaaS).

  • Simple, but unique file sharing system which runs on OpenStack using GIT and PySendFile.
  • This application aims to give a good insight on how to design, architect and deploy OpenStack, automate the same process and create applications for OpenStack.
  • The application will be designed using Python, Qt4 and Django web framework.

Expected Results:

  • Seamless and near real-time file transfer and storage on cloud.
  • Automated spawning of servers instances on cloud(IaaS) as per the demand(for load balancing).
  • This system should also be easy to modify for adding features, plug-ins or simply for making other applications run on it.

Knowledge Prerequisites:

OpenStack, Git, Pyhton, Django Web Framework, Qt4 (If possible)


TBD. Feel free to volunteer
