Cisco IT continues to improve upon virtualization and cloud computing capabilities in its Allen, Texas data center. We have added new capabilities in recent months that improve the self-service features available to users. On the Cisco IT Elastic Infrastructure Services (CITEIS) platform, Cisco’s private cloud, users now have the capability to create virtual machines. Additionally, they can enable middleware such as Apache web servers and WebLogic app servers.

A recent exchange on the Open MPI users’ list turned up a minor bug in our code base. The bug had to do with how Open MPI reported a settings value through our configuration querying tool (“ompi_info”).
The code using the configuration value in question was doing the Right Things, but the tool was effectively reporting the wrong value. This led to some confusion on the mailing list, resulting in a bug fix being pushed upstream and the user concluding, “Trust, but verify.”
