[Openstack] Cells use cases

Great to see further improvements are in the pipeline. The cinder support for cells in Havana is a very welcome development.

For our Grizzly instance, we're also seeing some issues around flavors / availability zone definition along with some ceilometer functions.

It would be good to have a list of what is expected not to work in Havana (so that we don't accidentally think something is not working yet but it is just a configuration issue).

At CERN, we're running cells for scalability. When you go over 1000 hypervisors or so, the general recommendation is to be in a cells configuration.

Cells are quite complex and the full functionality is not there yet so some parts will need to wait for Havana.

Actually I hope we can get aggregates and security groups working in Icehouse.  I'd love for some other folks to want to improve the cells code. :)  There's not much change in Havana.  But, I think those are the 2 biggest features that can't be used.
