This Fall’s OpenStack Summit is in full swing, and DreamHost has great news to share with you from Barcelona!  We will be participating in the Interop Challenge at this summit, giving a demonstration of DreamCompute’s interoperability with other OpenStack-powered clouds.

We’ll be presenting an on-stage demo as we deploy a fully scalable WordPress site on DreamHost’s Cloud. The fully automatic installation is managed by an Ansible playbook that configures—in less than eight minutes—one database and file server, two web servers, and a load-balancer. The same playbook is used by 16 other OpenStack clouds, demonstrating the power of interoperability of the open source technology behind the DreamHost Cloud.

If you’re not in Barcelona for the Summit, don’t worry! You can watch the demo from the  OpenStack Summit website.

Orrrr you can skip all that, and jump in and get your hands dirty yourself! Head to the DreamHost Knowledge Base to learn how to install multi-node WordPress in 8 minutes or less.

 Cheers from Barcelona!
