We are doing some technology evaluations with the intent of publishing
reference architectures at various scale points (500, 1500, 2000 etc). Part
of this work will be to determine how to best partition the nodes in to
regions based on scale limits of OpenStack components and workload
characteristics. The work we are doing increased in scope significantly, so
the first RA will be coming at the end of Q1 or early Q2.

We do plan on using some components of Fuel for our testing but the main
purpose is path finding. The work we do will eventually make it into Fuel,
but we are going to run in front of it a bit.

Plans for multi-DC: my understanding is that we are working on developing a
whitepaper in Q4 that will provide a possible OpenStack multi-DC
configuration, but I do not know whether or not we intend to include Fuel
in the scope of this work (my guess would be no).  Chris – I copied you in
case you wanted to comment here.

Regarding specifying region names in UI, is it possible to specify region
names in API?  And (apologies for my ignorance on this one) what is the
relative equivalence to environments in Fuel (e.g. 1 environment : many
regions, 1 environment == 1 region)?

i've dug around 8.0 roadmap and didn't find anythind regarding Multi-DC

My ask is about tiny(but useful) feature: give user ability to *specify
Region name in UI.*

Region name is already in every puppet module, so we just need to add this
to UI.

Do we have smth already?

More general question: What are our plans in regards Multi-DC?
