[Openstack-operators] how to manage multiple openstack regions(Juno)

We manage two regions using a single portal.  We do this by utilizing a single keystone that is just stretched across the two regions.    This allows any user to go into any portal they like and manage their tenants in either region. 

All services other than Keystone (for us) are independent of each other.  There is no sharing between regions of anything such as quotas or anything like that.  So, we did have to build tools that when we create a tenant that has special quota requirements that it does those quote requirements in-sync.  

I hope that helps.

I was just talking to Yahoo! about this exact same thing.  We both have many regions that we would like to manage from a single plane of glass.  From Godaddys side it is mainly around managing quota for projects between multiple regions.  IE we would like to define a high level quota for a project and allow the end users to say how much of it should be allocated where.

Yahoo! Has some tooling that they are looking at revamping/Open sourcing.  Since, you have a similar need and tooling, would you like to help out?  Is the code for what you have available somewhere?

We have large scale physical servers to manage depend on our services, and built multiple openstack env.(regions), does any one how to manage these individual openstacks in one operation portal?We developed our own UI for it(not horizon).
Thanks a lot!
