What is OpenLab?

OpenLab’s mission is to enable the testing, reporting, and development of tools and applications for hybrid and multi-cloud environments. OpenLab fulfills its mission by providing a ready to use and easy to replicate platform that tests the usability, reliability, and resiliency of hybrid and multi-cloud tooling. Clouds live in a rich software stack, with key elements “below” and “above”. When you consider Open Source points of integration the options are staggering. Open Infrastructure is about helping to reduce the complexity.

By building on highly successful, mature, and rapidly emerging tools and applications that originate with cloud platform providers (OSVs), independent software vendors (ISVs), cloud service providers (CSPs), enterprise end-user IT, OpenLab is uniquely positioned as a key component to Open Infrastructure.

Support OpenLab

Working on the problems that are common and span across different communities in an isolated manner is not beneficial for the ecosystem since what is done by each of these communities individually can potentially be shared by others who are working on solving similar problems. This includes but is not limited to improved way of working, alignment on best practices, and tooling re-use.

Here are some ways to support OpenLab:

  • Additional infrastructure (commodity hardware, cloud resources, etc)
  • Engineering support (developers, project management, software support)
  • QA, QE, and test (unit, integration, e2e, scenario) builders.
  • Software/application and tooling integrations
  • Operations support
Support is not limited to only the items listed above. Fill out the form to get in touch with a governance team member.

How OpenLab Works

As developer John Doe of Widgets, Inc. you want to test …; what can you expect?:

  1. Fill out the “Let’s Get Started” form.
  2. You will receive a confirmation and someone will contact you within 24 hours.
  3. OpenLab team will work out the specifics of what you need and what is expected to complete your testing if anything is not clear on the form.
  4. Once the details of testing have been completed your request will go into the backlog which can be seen here.
  5. When your testing configuration is available you will receive relevant login credentials.
  6. Once testing is completed you will receive an email for feedback on the process and request for timeline for result reporting if not already done.
