Finally, I happy to announce that OpenStack Rally team, after more than 1 year of work, finished support of benchmarking with already existing users in OpenStack. This is crucial feature that simplifies adoption of Rally in enterprise world.
Why it’s so important?
There are 2 very important use cases from production world:
- It’s simpler to run Rally against production cloud
Rally can use existing users instead of creating own which is impossible in case of r/o Keystone backends like LDAP and AD.
- It’s safer to run Rally against production cloud
Rally can be run from isolated group of users and if something went wrong it won’t affect rest of the cloud users.
