Plan the OpenStack update

Plan the OpenStack update

As a result of the planning stage of the OpenStack update, a detailed maintenance plan is created.

The maintenance plan must include the following parts:

  • A strict step-by-step update procedure

  • A rollback plan

  • A maintenance window schedule for each update phase

    Note

    The update flow is thoroughly selected by engineers in correspondence with the workload and requirements of a particular cloud.

After the maintenance plan is successfully tested on a staging environment, you can proceed with the actual update in production.
