VMware Integrated OpenStack 2.0 is Available Now!

Shortly before VMworld US 2015, we shared with you some of the great new features coming to VMware Integrated OpenStack 2.0. Today, we are excited to announce that VIO 2.0 is generally available. As before, this release is free for all Enterprise Plus customers, and there are two install options:

  1. Full install
  2. Upgrade

Yes, you read that right, it is possible to seamlessly upgrade your VMware Integrated OpenStack 1.0 (Icehouse) release to version 2.0 (Kilo). We modeled our upgrade process, summarized in Figure 1, after the Blue-Green strategy made popular by Jez Humble, Dave Farley, and Martin Fowler.
