Automated Deployment of a Highly Available OpenStack Cloud

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Automation of OpenStack deployment is rapidly maturing, with many approaches now available. However the matter of ensuring that automated deployments are highly available remains to some extent the white elephant in the room - everyone wants reliable infrastructure, but setting it up often still requires complex manual work.

In this practical hands-on session, we briefly touch upon architectural considerations, and walk through usage of an implementation which automates deployment of Pacemaker / DRBD / HAProxy via Chef cookbooks, orchestrated by Crowbar in order to provide the cloud operator with a relatively simple and pain-free experience.

Unlike the similarly-named session given in Atlanta, this session will have less slideware in order to allow more time to focus on the failover process, and will be based on the Icehouse release.

Please note! Attendees wishing to follow along with the practical content presented in the workshop should bring their laptops with the latest releases of VirtualBox and Vagrant pre-installed, and visit the SUSE booth prior to the session in order to obtain prerequisite files.
