Object Storage Goes Global - One feature that is a little more under the radar but of significant importance is global clusters for object storage.  “The global clustering feature allows you to take your object storage environment — a cost effective system to backup – and run across several data centers,” said Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation. http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2013/10/17/havana-openstack-enterprise-features/
The OpenStack Havana release had more than 910 contributors and delivers nearly 400 new features. Two major new features are Metering & Monitoring (Ceilometer) and Orchestration (Heat). A Red Hat Survey recently finds promising signs for Openstack enterprise adoption.
