Openstack Congress provides Policy as a service solution for Openstack based clouds. Policy based fulfillment makes it convenient to write policies for VM migrations and evacuations based on data monitored from various data sources. The aim of the project is to integrate the service to SUSE openstack cloud and evaluate the use of policies as a means to develop HA solutions.

The steps for this project: 1. Evaluate Congress integration in devstack 2. Hack the packaging systems to install the packages required for Congress 3. Prepare a barclamp to install Congress services on controller node 4. Prepare policies on the lines of HA requirements 5. Demonstrate monitoring and reactive enforcement of policies
