Code talks. Nowhere is this mantra more true than in the open source community. By assembling one of the largest teams working within the community to increase upstream contributions—and continuing to add to the team by recruiting, hiring and training top talent—the OpenStack Innovation Center (OSIC) is deeply committed to enhancing the OpenStack platform.


To ensure that the team operates as transparently as possible, we share our roadmap with the community, present our work in open forums, and invite others to get involved. We review this roadmap every three months, and update it every six months.


To influence future iterations of this roadmap, please participate in the OpenStack Foundation's Enterprise and Product Workgroups. Should you have any questions about this roadmap, please contact (, IRC: kencjohnston) or Krish Raghuram (, IRC: KrishR).


Key focuses:

  • Manageability
  • Scalability
  • Reliability and resilience
  • High availability
  • Security and compliance
  • Simplicity
  • Bug fixes across all of the projects
