Hi everyone.
The following blog was published by Li Ning from China mobiles on kata


Would anyone happen to know Li Ning or other relevant people from China
mobile to ask them to join one of our weekly architecture meetings and
discuss the use cases they see for kata containers in production?

Welcome to the Open Infrastructure (OpenInfra) Community Newsletter,
a digest of the latest developments and activities across OpenInfra
projects, events, and users!

*2020 OpenInfra Foundation Annual Report*
Despite being a very different year than most, the OpenInfra community,
which has over 110,000 community members, made it a productive and
successful year. 2020 was the start of the next decade of OpenInfra
tackling challenges including hardware diversification, deployment
diversification, government regulations like data sovereignty, and the
availability of more open source than ever.
Each community member, working group, SIG, and contributor was instrumental
in continuing to support the OpenInfra Foundation's mission: building open
source communities who write software that runs in production. The 2020
Annual Report was published today highlighting the achievements across the
community and the goals for the year ahead.
Let’s break down some of the highlights of last year:

   - The OpenStack Foundation has taken the next step in its ongoing
   evolution by becoming the OpenInfra Foundation to support open
   infrastructure for a market estimated at $20 billion USD.
   - Over 60 global organizations joined in establishing the OpenInfra
   Foundation to build the next decade of infrastructure for AI, 5G and edge
   computing, including Platinum Members Ant Group, AT&T, Ericsson, FiberHome,
   Huawei, Red Hat, Wind River, Tencent, and Facebook.
   - OpenStack, one of the top three most active open source projects with
   15 million cores in production, marked its 10th anniversary in July 2020
   - The OpenInfra Foundation shared its support for the Magma project,
   announced OpenInfra Labs as its newest pilot project and confirmed
   StarlingX as a top-level Open Infrastructure project.
   - The OpenInfra community became more accessible internationally through
   the first virtual OpenInfra Summit that gathered 10,000 attendees from 120+
   different countries to discuss more than 30 open source projects.

The OpenInfra Foundation would like to extend a huge thanks to the global
community for all of the work that went into 2020 and is continuing in 2021
to help people build and operate OpenInfra. Check out the full OpenInfra
Foundation 2020 Annual Report and join us

   - This week, the 2021 OpenInfra Board of Directors met for the first
   time, onboarding new members and thanking the members who served last year.
   Allison Randal was elected Board Chair, and you can learn here
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/mbhpsp> about the new board as
   they start the next decade of OpenInfra.
   - The OpenInfra Foundation is helping the Magma community organize its Magma
   Developers Conference <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/23hpsp> on
   February 3. The virtual event is free to attend and participants can expect
   to hear about the Magma development roadmap, including the upcoming 1.4
   release, as well as use cases in production.


*Elevate Your Infrastructure*

   - Airship 2.0 is Kubernetes certified!
      - Airship 2.0 has been designated as a Certified Kubernetes
      Distribution through the Cloud Native Computing Foundation's Software
      Conformance Program <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/yojpsp>,
      guaranteeing that Airship provides a consistent installation of
      supports the latest Kubernetes versions, and provides a portable
      cloud-native environment with other Certified Platforms.
   - Airship Container as a Service
      - Two operators will manage the lifecycle of virtual machines and
      their relationship to the cluster: vNode-Operator (ViNO) and the Support
      Infra Provider (SIP). These operators are new projects to the Airship
      ecosystem and were migrated to OpenDev earlier this month. Read more
      <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/ehkpsp> about ViNO and SIP on
      the blog.
   - General Availability of Airship 2.0 is on track for release in Q1.


*The speed of containers, the security of VMs*

   - Kata Containers was represented at the Cloud Native Infrastructures
   Meetup in Beijing.
      - Learn about why China Mobile Cloud selected Kata Containers as its
      security containers, and some performance tuning exploration and
      optimization ideas for Kata on Kata blogs
   - Are you a Kata Containers user? Please take a few moments to fill out
   the User Survey <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/qumpsp> to
   provide feedback and information around your deployment. All information is
   confidential to the OpenInfra Foundation unless you designate that it can
   be public.


*Open Source Software for Creating Private and Public Clouds*

   - The Wallaby cycle community goals are underway! Our focuses this cycle
   are on migration from oslo.rootwrap to oslo.privsep
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/mfopsp> for a faster more secure
   command privilege model and on migrating RBAC policy formats from JSON
   to YAML <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/27opsp> helping to
   reduce policy management issues for OpenStack deployers.
   - Three services have been removed from the upcoming Wallaby release
   meaning their last release was Victoria. The three services that have been
   retired are Karbor <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/i0ppsp>,
   Qinling <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/ysqpsp>, and Searchlight
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/elrpsp>. We thank those that
   contributed to these retired projects for all their hard work and
   dedication to the OpenStack community!
   - Placement has been moved back under Nova’s governance
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/udspsp>. The Placement project
   had tried to use the new distributed project leadership model
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/a6spsp> that the TC put in place
   last release, but due to the small team size and overlap with those
   involved with Nova, it was concluded that it would be better to move
   Placement back under Nova’s governance.


*A Fully Featured Cloud for the Distributed Edge*

   - The community is currently working on the 5.0 release with focus on
   security related features like secret management and image signature
   validation. The release is planned to come out by the summer.
   - The next round of the Technical Steering Committee election will also
   happen during the second quarter of the year. If you are interested in
   running for a seat start contributing
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/6qupsp> now to be eligible to


*Stop Merging Broken Code*

   - The release of Nodepool 3.14.0
   <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/2bwpsp> brings improvements in
   Kubernetes, OpenShift, and containers.
   - James E. Blair <https://t.e2ma.net/click/yw5vyc/io0p6s/i4wpsp> is
   reconfirmed as the Zuul Project Lead for 2021, continuing to serve as a
   central point of contact for the project, and to guide the consensus-driven
   decision making process on which the community relies.
   - The Zuul Maintainers reached agreement on a new specification for a
   solution to locally reproduce job builds
   - Planning is currently underway for a possible build log and artifact
   storage access proxy complimenting Zuul, feel free to join the discussion
