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

Speakers: Raghu Yeluri, Intel Corporation

As an Enterprise and/or a Cloud service provider, you would have to ensure that all regulatory requirements for workload and data sovereignty are met.   You have to answer the questions from your customers like:

where is my workload running? ,  Are my workloads running in a compliant location? ,  How can I trust the Integrity of the host servers on which my workloads are running , can you prove to me that my workloads and data have not violated policies? , How can I control via policy where my workload can and cannot migrate and run .


In this session, we will present a solution architecture and soon to  be up streamed implementation with a walk through/demonstration of  set of OpenStack extensions and solution components that address these questions.

It will provide a recipe for how to:

  1. Enable a system admin to securely write an asset/geo-tag descriptors on to the host servers,

  2. make that descriptor available to the OpenStack scheduler

  3. Define the location/segregation/geo policy for the VMs/Workloads

  4. LocationComplianceFilter in OpenScheduler to pick a compliant set of servers
