Cloud is exploding in the enterprise and OpenStack technology—“the” open source cloud platform, is driving innovation, workload portability and seamless interoperability. OpenStack is the fastest growing open source project worldwide, and it is being deployed by thousands of companies for business critical applications. Join us for this keynote by Marten Mickos, SVP and GM, and Bill Hilf, SVP, Product and Services Management, HP Cloud to learn how you can use the OpenStack ecosystem for public, private, and hybrid cloud delivery, while still maintaining the security, control, and management required to operate at Enterprise scale. Hear real-world examples of how companies have implemented OpenStack technology, the benefits experienced, and how HP Helion OpenStack is driving innovation in the cloud and open-source industry.
In this session you will learn about Ceilometer and the challenges and solution faced in integrating customer billing. Ceilometer is a telemetry system and by itself mostly provides collection of and basic access to raw usage data. To interface with a 3rd party billing system additional work is required. Ceilometer gathers data from various sources and levels (such as storage, compute, networking or even hardware related events), does some basic processing, stores it in a database and provides access to it via an API. All this data is referenced to a project but this is where the scope of Ceilometer stops. For a Billing system to act, it must have a concept of daily billable records, products/services, accounts and subscriptions, meaning who and what I should bill and for what amounts.
We will present the need for billing, the design of a framework that is intended to bridge the current Openstack gap and enable pluggable external billing systems.

Developing a private or public cloud can be complex and challenging. However, the essential element of all clouds is the need for flexibility and interoperability with existing and future technologies within your datacenter—regardless of which vendor you choose. The only way to truly achieve this is with open source technologies. The OpenStack project has proven this by setting a common standard based on a shared set of goals, resulting in successful and sought-after technologies that benefit everyone.
In this session, you'll hear about the shifts taking place in IT architectures and learn about the key open source technologies fueling these shifts and their benefits. You'll also learn how Red Hat and eNovance are both contributing to and leading these open source communities, ranging from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (OpenStack and Red Hat Enterprise Linux), cloud management platforms (ManageIQ), storage technologies (Gluster and Ceph), Platform-as-a-Service (OpenShift), and why they are critical to the future of a truly open cloud.
Mirantis just raised a $100 million Series B round, one of the largest Series B ever, and by far the largest in OpenStack. Backed by Insight Venture Partners, August Capital, Sapphire Ventures, Intel Capital, Ericsson, Dell and Red Hat, Mirantis emerged as the strongest pure play OpenStack company. So what worked and what didn't for both the investors and Mirantis? What's the right scenario to consider corporate investment vs traditional VC? Does the company regret taking money from it's #1 competitor - Red Hat? Hear answers to all of these questions in a fireside chat between Heidi Bretz and Adrian Ionel, Mirantis CEO, who was on the forefront of Mirantis' fundraising process.
Building on Trove, we’ll demonstrate the feature-rich Tesora platform that includes self-provisioning and lifecycle management for MySQL and NoSQL databases.
The first challenge was to gain overall knowledge of OpenStack in order to deploy and manage it. The second, much bigger challenge was to orchestrate a private cloud at Orange with OpenStack as its middleware as well as various other tools and processes for a real world use case scenario.
OpenStack is a set of modules which can be deployed in various ways. Which is the right way to deploy OpenStack was a key challenge.
Our aim was to deploy and to complement OpenStack with further, customized components in order to create a private cloud at Orange which would provide multiple, complex services to its internal customers: moving from IaaS middleware to Cloud services embracing infrastructure management, Cloud offers management and customer onboarding.
A telecom relies on Mirantis as a key partner partner to streamline our learning curve. Our collaboration included trainings, OpenStack Fuel as the deployment mechanism as well as development of a VxLAN plugin. Picking a partner who has in-depth expertise in deploying OpenStack in production at scale is of high importance for the success of a large enterprise grade OpenStack project.
Also, our collaboration with Mirantis helped us better understand how to collaborate with the OpenStack community and to contribute upstream - for example by providing manifests for OpenStack Fuel. Our goal is to share components we develop in order to make OpenStack better and more viable in coming years.

Industry Executive Panel - Discussion with Intel and HP Executives and Cloud industry experts on Enterprise Cloud Initiatives:
· Enterprise readiness of OpenStack
· Biggest drivers for Cloud in Enterprise
· Understanding the economics of cloud: is public cloud really cheaper?
· Open Source litigation, who is your partner? How to de-risk OpenStack?
OpenStack relies partly on underlying proprietary storage products. However, there are open source alternatives that provide open storage and cloud architecture. openATTIC is an open project founded two years ago by a group of German storage developers aiming to provide open storage management and a software-defined storage platform. The speech introduces openATTIC and how it can be implemented as storage platform for OpenStack.
openATTIC has a growing community in Germany and Europe and has been adopted by bigger organizations to manage their storage resources and to work as storage platform for cloud systems.
The storage project has already been presented on the OpenStack Days in Milan and Budapest earlier this year where we received very positive feedback. Now we would like to present it a broader audience at the OpenStack Summit.
The speech is not going to be very technical but the audience should have an idea of storage management and cloud systems and experience with OpenStack. We want the participants to understand the concept of an open storage platform, the significance of an open, central API and why open storage systems are crucial for cloud systems. OpenStack users will learn how an open storage platform can help them to improve their cloud project and make it more flexible.
In this talk we will look at real-world scenarios deploying and managing workloads in a multi-platform environment of compute architectures including IBM System z (traditional mainframe), POWER, and Intel architectures. Moving beyond a homogeneous data center to a mix of enterprise architectures adds potential complexities around hypervisor support, deployment capabilities, and management of disparate workloads--of which some might be CPU-centric while others are not.
Attendees will gain understanding in the following topics:
Two challenging cloud problems can be effectively addressed with OpenStack (at least with some modifications). First, making the intercloud WAN an integral aspect of cloud workloads and virtual data centers has heretofore been difficult, if not impossible. Second, federating dissimilar public and managed private clouds so that enterprise IT users easily can place workloads in the optimal cloud data center has been equally challenging.
Join Colt, KVH, and Siaras as they discuss how these problems can best be addressed and recent successful results of joint efforts to correct them.
OpenStack and OpenDaylight are two open source projects with a lot in common, including the same developers who work on both simultaneously. What makes these projects work so well together and how can you get involved? Ask the developers themselves in this panel discussing policy and control -- the point of intersection for the two projects -- and the pros and cons of uniting OpenStack s cloud with OpenDaylight s controller. They ll also cover the challenges encountered while building code and the ultimate long term benefits for the networking industry.
