Hi all,

The below was suggested for a Forum session but we don't yet have a
submission or name to chair/moderate. I, for one, would certainly be
interested in providing input. Do we have any owners out there?

Resource reservation requirements:
The Blazar project [https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Blazar] has been
revived following Barcelona and will soon release a new version. Now
is a good time to get involved and share requirements with the
community. Our development priorities are described through Blueprints
on Launchpad: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/blazar

In particular, support for pre-emptible instances could be combined
with resource reservation to maximize utilization on unreserved

Is Blazar the right project to discuss reservations of finite
consumable resources like software licenses?

  Blazar would like to ultimately support many different kinds of
resources (volumes, floating IPs, etc.). Software licenses can be
another type.
