As part of Icehouse, the OpenStack platform is now gaining a new project with the inclusion of the Trove database-as-a-service (DaaS) technology. Trove was originally known as Project Red Dwarf and got its start in 2011 with the support of Rackspace and Hewlett-Packard. Rackspace today has a cloud database service that is built on top of the same technology that is in Trove.
"Pretty much every application today has a database," Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation, told eWEEK. "Creating a standard way to provision and manage the lifecycle of those databases is a really useful and important feature to have in OpenStack."
