IPv6 Features in OpenStack Juno
During the Juno development cycle, numerous IPv6 features were merged into Neutron. Join Xu Han Peng, Sean M. Collins, and Robert Li as they discuss the following features available in OpenStack Neutron, Juno release:






  • Provider Networking - Upstream SLAAC Support.




    • Cloud admins create a Provider Network in Neutron, that use an upstream router that advertises RA s - so that instances can use SLAAC to configure their IPv6 networking.










  • RADVD - Support Router Advertisements using RADVD




    • Support for radvd in Neutron, for Neutron routers to announce IPv6 routes and addresses










  • Dnsmasq - DHCPv6 stateless and stateful mode in Dnsmasq





    • Adds support for stateful/stateless DHCPv6 to configure instances








This session will also discuss features that are planned for the upcoming Kilo release, such as:






  • Support Multiple IPv6 Prefixes and Addresses for IPv6 Network




    • Multiple IPv6 prefixes and/or addresses per Neutron port will be supported in OpenStack so a mix of public and private IPv6 addresses can supported.








  • Support IPv6 Prefix Delegation




    • Prefix delegation can be used to automatically configure neutron routers with prefixes so that IPv6 prefixes are obtained and renumbering can be done automatically.










  • Floating IP support for IPv6 Addresses



  • Add support for dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) on external gateway



  • Dual-stack arrangement on a router's gateway port can be supported by allowing both an IPv6 and an IPv4-based subnet to be associated with a router.

Extending Barbican - Managing Secrets and Events Your Way
Barbican provides a simple OpenStack-friendly REST service for secrets management. But what goes on behind the scenes when you make that service call? Barbican can work with many existing technologies and systems to securely store and generate secrets via a plugin approach, utilizing systems such as HSMs, Dogtag and KMIP. Workflow plugins automate SSL certificate requests with Certificate Authorities (CAs), such as Symantec. Event plugins enable sending events to consuming systems for monitoring or auditing, including CADF events into Ceilometer. In this presentation we detail how these various plugins work and interact with Barbican, and how they could be extended to suit your enterprise's specific integration needs.

Toward a Self-Driving Infrastructure – Experience of Running a 200 Physical Server BigData Cloud
In this talk, we share our experience on operating a 200-node OpenStack cluster and provide computing resources to about 50 research staff and students to IIIS (Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Study) in Tsinghua University for a year. The OpenStack cloud allows the researchers and students quickly run “big data” research projects, such as genome sequencing, image processing, quantum physics topics, as well as traditional scientific computing tool such as Matlab.

We have limited IT staff resource, so our primary goal during the above journey has been making the infrastructure ‘self-drivable’. We will share our recent experience on how to work with the Compass team (an open source tool from Huawei) and the Intel Ceph storage team to extend our cloud infrastructure to our current Ceph + OpenStack setup. We will share how we manage Openstack logs and performance data to improve system manageability and reduce human interaction with the system.

Why will I never look at developer support the same way again? Because I've been on the Developer Relations Group at Rackspace, and watching and monitoring the many ways that developers ask questions.


After four years of reading documentation comments on the API documents, I have some insights to share. Our support group has built a tool to listen to tagged feeds on Stack Overflow, read the jclouds mailing lists, all with the OpenStack app developer in mind. We monitor stackoverflow.com, serverfault.com, and superuser.com for questions tagged with Rackspace, rackspace-cloud, fog, cloudfiles, jclouds, pyrax, or keystone. At Rackspace we have been supporting cross-cloud SDKs such as Apache jclouds, Node.js pkgcloud, Ruby Fog, Python Pyrax, .NET, and PHP.

    • IT
    • Networks      
    • Consistent and optimized design
    • Network elements in IT, and security
    • Use of open source components, make and buy
  • Execution plan
Cloudified telcos transformation deeply impacts Orange insights:
  • Cloud as an opportunity to adapt our way of working, with the objective to drastically enhance our TTM and reactivity (deliver small changes more often in production):
    • Incept in our teams Agile and DevOps methodology and mindset
    • Adapt our processes and organizations (notably renovate relationship between Build and Run teams)
    • Renovate our network and security architecture
    • Skills transformation: acculturate our teams and forecast relevant trainings
    • Rely on openstack IaaS and opensource PaaS
    • Define and share guidelines for developing Cloud-ready applications
    • Set up a dedicated Cell in order to accompany our applications into their deployment on the Cloud (providing notably DevOps tooling and advices)
How Orange is boosting  its transformation contributing  to opensource communities
  •  For Orange, the best way to boost its Cloud transformation is to be an active contributor in the leading Cloud Open Source communities
    • Orange contributes actively to Openstack, especially to the networking project Neutron
    • Orange participates to OpenDaylight, provides use cases and contributes to define interfaces
  • Telco Cloud transformation is a challenge which could only be fully overcome by  leveraging the community power 
    • As a global telco operator, Orange shares the need to have a carrier grade Open Source Cloud infrastructure which supports not only the IT operations but also the network and service platforms
    • An Open Source NFV orchestration platform will be a key to ensure the interoperability of multi-vendors VNF solutions
  • To do so, Orange would like to participate actively to the initiatives which will accelerate the adoption of NFV: 
    • Openstack NFV working group
    • OPNFV project

Using Heat and Other Tools to Deploy HIghly Available Environments
The goal of this workshop is to give the audiences a hands-on experience in deploying multi-tier environments in OpenStack using the Orchestration service (Heat). We will also use the Telemetry service (Ceilometer) to automate the failovers and provide better availability for the applications running on top of OpenStack.

 
This is a hands-on workshop, and the audience is expected to participate. I will provide the remote environments for the exercise, you will need to have the following:




  • Laptop with Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet




  • Firefox or Chrome web-browser to connect to the dashboard






The number of environments is finite, so make sure not to be late.

Resiliency and Performance Engineering for OpenStack at Enterprise Scale
We break OpenStack.  We break all of OpenStack.  All the time.  Why?  Because we deliver OpenStack to the Enterprise so that the Enterprise can run large scale applications with tight SLAs, and the only way to achieve that level of reliability is to break everything all the time -- understand the impacts of the breakage.


In this talk, we will share what we've learned for the benefit of the community, and of OpenStack itself.  We'll talk about how we:






  • Build the tools, benchmarks, processes, architecture and extensions to enable OpenStack to be used for large enterprise mission critical use cases






  • Indoctrinate the product engineering team with this information so that it can be translated into the required changes for Mirantis Openstack products






  • Publish the verified results widely to build confidence in OpenStack.








 
Our goal is to provide everything necessary to run performance applications at large scales with no user visible failures. We will present our preliminary performance and reliability results for enterprise applications across compute, networking -- that's Neutron, NOT nova network -- and storage at scales of larger than 100 hypervisors.

 

We will include a section on the tools and operational processes necessary for the resiliency and performance achieved, as well as present our roadmap for greater scale, more application types and higher resiliency and performance.

The Open NFV Organization, Neutron and Open Daylight
A new organization has been formed called Open Network Function Virtualization (OP-NFV) under the Linux Foundation.  This new organization seeks to create integration projects that combine upstream code from projects such as Openstack, Opendaylight and the Linux Kernel and combine them with extensive testing, custom configuration and possibly upstream code patches. These things are based on the ETSI framework and requirements. 

This presentaiton will first describe the organization, its motivations and purpose. It will then present several key areas that that organization can collaborate with Openstack and Open Daylight. In the case of the former, the presentation will detail modifications to Neutron and Nova that can be used to better position virtualized network function elements, and how to initially orchestrate them. The next portion of the presentation will focus on how Open Daylight can be used as an SDN controller to complete the orchestration operation, and continue to manage the NFV deployment. 

Finally, the presentation will demonstrate for the viewers, a running example of the aforementioned configuration as a means of showing one possible configuration that meetings the NFV requirments the OP-NFV organization has set out to satisfy.

 

The presentation will be co-presented by myself and Chris Wright from Red Hat.

Digging Deep: OpenStack Neutron and NSX with KVM, Docker, vSphere, Hyper-V, Xen and Bare-Metal Hosts
This session is a technical deep dive on the OpenStack Neutron's Network Virtualization capabilities with default NSX Plugin and demonstrates an OpenStack Cloud with KVM, Xen, vSphere, Hyper-V, Docker, & Bare-metal compute platforms communicating over a single virtual Network.

The good, the bad & the ugly from a field deployment practitioners perspective. We will  also cover one of Neutron's Network Virtualization plugin's detailed overview and deep dive into real life benefits & challenges. We will be covering NSX Plugin - a virtual networking platform powering many OpenStack production environments as the networking engine behind Neutron. In this session we will explore the distributed systems architecture of the NSX Controller Cluster, the core functionality and behavior of NSX primary system components, and the logical networking devices and security tools NSX produces for consumption. High availability deployments, and packet flows for common scenarios will be discussed. 




And finally, we'll take a look at how the physical network fabric can be architected for Virtualized Network deployment architectures, be it with out without NSX.

SSL Everywhere with Ephemeral PKI
All eyes are on OpenStack security as this amazing product matures from DevTest plaything to enterprise grade cloud controller. One of the major pain points with securing OpenStack is deployment, configuration and support for SSL. Deploying a CA and integrating it with OpenStack services is hard enough, getting assurance from SSL and ensuring that the libraries using SSL are really working is nearly impossible. Most current guides ignore this part of the setup.

During our presentation we will unveil our solution to both of these problems. We present an open-source Ephemeral PKI system that sidesteps the revocation issues that plague most OpenStack deployments and provides a stateless, HA mechanism for providing certificate services to entire cloud infrastructures, supporting isolated deployments and multiple, per-service trust anchors. We hope this way deploying secure communication will become the norm rather than difficult add-on.

SoftPassthrough & User Space Switching, Better DPDK Solution for NFV Workload
Today PCI passthrough is used for dataplane apps like VNF, for high performance and low latency. However, PCI passthrough has drawback that it break the portability of cloud app. For example, if an app is deployed on another host with different NIC, then it has to be re-packaged by the vendor. The soft passthrough provider a hardware agonitsc framework, which balance the decoupling requirement of apps and hardware, and high performance / low latency. With soft passthrough, at the cost of very little extra overhead compared with PCI passthrough, the similar performance/lagency goal can be attained.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Trove but Didn't Know Whom to Ask
In this presentation we dive deep into OpenStack Trove, the Database-as-a-Service project in OpenStack. The goal of Trove is to provide a scalable and reliable Cloud Database as a Service provisioning functionality for both relational and non-relational database engines and to continue to improve its fully featured and extensible open source framework.

The presentation will describe the architecture and internals of Trove in detail and provide an in-depth view of each of these components. We will also provide some historical perspective and chart the evolution of the Trove project as it has evolved over the past 18 or so months as many of the architectural decision and trade-offs have been made in the process of this evolution, and to truly understand the architecture one must understand some of the history as well. We will also provide an overview of the layout of the source code of the project and highlight the location of the various major architectural elements in the source repository.

The presentation is valuable to developers and aspiring contributors to OpenStack, especially Trove, as it will give them a very solid understanding of the project and the source code and make it much easier for them to begin to contribute to the project at a very fundamental level. The presentation is also valuable for OpenStack adopters and those interested in operating databases in the OpenStack cloud. It will help decision makers understand the flexibility of the Trove architecture and understand why choosing Trove, as the basis for a Database-as-a-Service, is a very good one.

How Do I Get My Hardware OpenStack-Ready?
Building an OpenStack cloud at production scales involves deploying and configuring a complex software stack on lots of hardware, usually using Puppet/Chef or other highly-automated systems to drive the process. If you want the resulting cloud to be robust and easy to scale, you need to know the hardware stack is ready: that BIOS settings and firmware levels are correct and that all base level interactions behave as expected. If this is not done right the first time, as the number of target systems grows, the painful process of manual checking and correcting quickly becomes unmanageable.

How do you figure this stuff out?  How do you detect and maybe even fix these issues systematically, so that your deployments are trouble free? What happens between unboxing and Puppet/Chef? Luckily, there are tools to help! 

This talk will discuss tools and techniques for pre-deployment hardware issue-detection and repair. We ll look at several species of tools, including:



  • Bare-metal deployment systems like OpenStack ironic and Ubuntu MAAS, which incorporate device discovery and checkout features.

  • What other solutions are coming to solve this problem?



You ll leave with a good understanding of potential issues, a workable method, and tools that will not only help you master pre-flight hardware checkout, but also facilitate different flavors of OpenStack cloud deployment.

Evaluating Vendors and Drivers in OpenStack Deployments with Rally + OSProfiler


Everyone is excited about OpenStack these days, and while there s plenty of flavors of OpenStack for your datacenter, there is limited data for making decisions on the technology stack that runs OpenStack. Furthermore, OpenStack consists of many projects (e.g., Nova, Cinder, Neutron, Marconi, Trove, Ironic) with pluggable backends, which are powered by many different vendors.

 

With so much choice out there, you need the right information to evaluate each vendor's tools for performance and ability to handle cloud scale workloads.

 

In this session, you'll learn about the Rally + OSProfiler tool, which helps you compare vendors and their drivers in action in OpenStack deployments. You'll see how to get multiple data points like benchmarking graphs, code profiling graphs/data, bottlenecks across multiple OpenStack services--all of which can help you compare each vendor for your needs.

 

Rally + OSProfiler also helps driver vendors to improve their performance by digging into the same benchmarking and profiling data, which will improve the driver quality starting from the code development phases to the production and post-production phase.

 

If you're trying to evaluate OpenStack vendors and performance, this session is for you.

Using Containers Without Risking Your *aas (Canonical)
It is not generally considered safe to run untrusted code in a container as uid 0.  You might have seen that in fine print at the bottom of a slide deck after being blown away by the long list of reasons that containers are totally awesome.

Luckily, that fine print is now a historical artifact.

User Namespaces are a feature added to the linux kernel in version 3.13.  They allow for the root user inside the container to be an unprivileged user outside.  This allows running of init or other process that expect to be run as root without risk.

The talk will describe how to use user namespaces and other linux security tools such as seccomp and LSM to safely run untrusted code inside a container.  It will also discuss how techniques are used by the granite nova driver to provide secure containers via openstack compute api.

Building Multi-site & Multi-OpenStack Cloud with OpenStack Cascading
1) Infrastructure services offered by multiple Openstack deployments in geographical distributed DCs need to be consolidated into a unified one;

2) Vendor agnostic and unified Openstack API is expected even when the Openstack resource pools in different DCs  are provided by different vendors

3) Unified Openstack resource pooling needs to flexibly scale out from several Servers/VMs up to millions of Servers/ VMs;

4) Rolling update with minimized service interruption is expected when upgrading the Openstack Cloud OS software, SOA Restful API is preferred over RPC internal messaging interface for the orchestration & communication between different availability zones.

 

The answer is OpenStack Cascading solution. The speech will cover background requirements and customer value analysis, technical elaboration of OpenStack Cascading solution, and its Demo.

Transforming to Cloud Native: Nice Theory, But How Do We Transform? Lessons Learned
This is a panel discussion on the multi-dimensional transformation to a Cloud Native or devops/no ops model inside an enterprise organization.  
We will examine: 
•         Reasons not to transform 
•         The planned and unplanned impact of the transformation 
•         Why some parts of an enterprise should never transform 
•         When to transform 
And, most importantly HOW specific organization successfully and not so successfully made the transformation and the lessons we can all learn from real-world transformations and those in process. We hope that attendants will take away strategies and vicarious experience to better plan their own transformations or how to guide others as they transform to cloud native, devops/noops organizations.

Taking the Mystery out of Erasure Codes: A Swift Implementation
Following the release of Swift 2.0, the community has been working feverishly on the first significant Storage Policy for Swift Erasure Code support.  This is talk will certainly touch on the value of this feature to deployers but really focus more on educating the audience on exactly how it is that Erasure Codes work to enable such a dramatic cost savings while preserving or increase durability.

Additionally, this talk will take a close look at the options that the community faced as it examined implementation choices including what we came up with any why.  We will provide an overview of a OpenStack requirement, a Python Erasure Code Library known as PyECLib supporting the most popular and efficient algorithms out there and explain how we leveraged Storage Policies to add Erasure Code support without turning the codebase upside down.

Come hear the story directly from two of the main Erasure Code contributors from Box and Intel!

When Disaster Strikes the Cloud: The Who, What, When, Where and How of OpenStack Disaster Recovery
When Disaster Strikes the Cloud: Who, What, When, Where and How to recover 

Enterprise applications needs to be able to survive large scale disasters. While some born-on-the-cloud applications have built-in disaster recovery functionality, non-born-on-the-cloud enterprise applications typically expect the infrastructure to provide disaster recovery support.  OpenStack provides various building blocks that enable an OpenStack application to survive a disaster; these building blocks are being improved in Juno and Kilo.  Some of these building blocks need to be enabled by the OpenStack cloud administrator and others need to be leveraged by the application deployer.   In this presentation, we will review basic disaster recovery concepts covering when, where, and what is done at each stage of the application cloud life-cycle.  We will describe the existing building blocks and we will explain the roles of cloud administrator and the cloud end-user, in enabling OpenStack applications to survive a disaster.  We will then detail new features in Juno and coming in Kilo that will help enhance OpenStack's disaster recovery support.  We will conclude by detailing the remaining gaps and present some tools that address these gaps, allowing an application to survive a disaster when running on an OpenStack cloud.

Tales from the Ship: Navigating the OpenStack Community Seas
As the OpenStack community has exploded in size, certain processes and
procedures were put in place in order to allow for more effective
governance and management of the myriad projects that comprise the
OpenStack ecosystem. Tooling was developed around blueprint and design
development, source code management, code reviews, and team
communication, all with the ostensible goal of providing more consistent
and transparent management of project direction.


However, with the introduction of these many processes and tools came a
burden to new contributors as well as a need for mentorship programs to
nurture and guide individuals and organizations into being good
OpenStack community citizens. This talk is a guide to navigating these
processes and tools. It's designed as a tool to help new folks get
introduced to the community, as well as a guide for old hats to mentor
others.

We will cover the following topics:
  • The OpenStack community and governance

  • Tools we use in the community

  • Review and code best practices

  • Tips and techniques for best interacting with community members

  • Embracing the ebb and flow of corporate and individual agendas

Jay will present the above guide, with Geoff Hollingworth from Ericsson
providing real-world experience in how applying these recommendations
can change a company's experience with the OpenStack community.

Architectural Overview of Distributed Virtual Routers in OpenStack Neutron
Since the Diablo days, Nova has had a multi-host feature that offers attractive network
performance, scalability and availability characteristics.  This has long been seen as a gap
in Neutron, where routing and floating IPs have been provided by a centralized component.

With the Juno release, Neutron introduces a Distributed Virtual Router (DVR) feature.   DVR brings
improvements in network performance, scalability and availability by distributing the routing and
floating IP functions.

In this session, members of the DVR upstream team behind the DVR implementation will discuss
the design and architecture of the DVR feature.  We will provide insight into key objectives and
design decisions that lead to the Juno implementation.  We will explore the differences between
a deployment using centralized routers and one using DVR.  We will also discuss limitations of the
current DVR implementation, and take a look forward at future related work.

Attendees will leave this session with a clear understanding of how Distributed Virtual Router ties into the OpenStack Neutron framework to support the Openvswitch based deployments that addresses the scalability, performance and availability issues.

OpenStack on a Silver Platter
Over the last months, we could see more and more OpenStack deployments running in production.

Installing an OpenStack cloud that can scale does not only mean setting up packages and run your favorite automation tool to configure all the projects together.

It also means:




  • test deployments (ability to reproduce the infrastructure)


  • adding new features and fix bugs in components (continuous integration)


  • manage upgrades (OpenStack releases, dependencies and operating systems)


  • migrate the production with new features (continuous delivery) without downtime
    Here are the challenges: how to deal with staying as close as possible to the latest features available in OpenStack and how to upgrade an OpenStack cloud in production as often as possible.



We can see over the OpenStack distros market that they all provide a nice way to deploy OpenStack in 5 minutes from a great GUI. But do they really care about upgrades? Are they much more flexible than other solutions? Are they really production-ready?
 
In this presentation, I would like to present the path we take at eNovance to build, deploy and manage OpenStack in production, trying to respect all the requirements above. There is no magic behind it, we just love automation.

Trusted Bare Metal What's That?
You are a cloud user who wants bare metal for performance forging the security benefits of virtualization. All the OpenStack services, such as, Nova, Keystone, and Glance, all run on bare metal. At launch time, can we trust that they are free of malware?

Ironic in OpenStack provides support for flashing machines using network boot, PXE/iPXE. We propose modifying Ironic for trusted boot by using a two phase measured launch approach. In Phase 1, measure the Ironic boot loader, and in Phase 2, measure the Glance image we seek to install on the machine. Glance images could carry expected hash values.

The solution described relies on tboot, an open source trusted boot loader, OAT, an open source remote attestation service, Intel TXT technology, and a trusted platform module (TPM).  We round out the talk with a demo illustrating trusted boot.

Billing Integration Enablement for Ceilometer

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.

Software Defined Infrastructure – A Gateway to Faster Innovation & Lower Costs
Software Defined Infrastructure architecture addresses the Compute, Network, Storage, Security, Energy and Manageability aspects of the infrastructure.  It includes the technology domains of Network Functions Virtualisation and Software Defined Networking. It benefits the infrastructure user and owner by enabling faster innovation and lower costs. Efficient SDI requires Application and Infrastructure interaction with the server playing a critical role.

As the Industry charges ahead with building the next generation of networking products, open source components, such as OpenStack need to evolve to fit Telecom and cloud requirements and support the deployment of NFV applications. While today NFV imposes new requirements on Networking and Neutron, the OpenStack community can use NFV as one of the drivers for a complete SDI and position the OpenStack project as part of a holistic Compute/Network/Storage orchestration solution, targeting  efficient, policy driven shared SDI infrastructure.

 

OpenStack is the premier open source API Services Framework for NFV that can address the needs of the Virtualised Infrastructure Manager (VIM) defined in the ETSI-NFV architecture. This presentation will start from a Networking perspective, drawing from ETSI-NFV specification work and the knowledge gained virtualising Telco workloads, add SDI aspects and cover the following topics:

• Provide an overview of the ETSI-NFV reference architecture,

• Identify the unique challenges presented by Telco & cloud for OpenStack,

• Describe with concrete examples how advancements made in OpenStack up to the Juno release help      deploying SDI at large scale

• Articulate missing elements that are needed to automate the deployment of Network Services & SDI, and    share thoughts on how you can get involved in this exciting new space

Application and Network Orchestration Using HEAT & TOSCA
The buzzwords Neutron, Heat, and TOSCA are spoken about quite often when it comes to the OpenStack - and many of us are still trying to make sense of the terminology and its place in the OpenStack world.  

Where OpenStack Neutron provides APIs for creating network elements, OpenStack Heat provides an orchestration engine for automating the setup and configuration of OpenStack infrastructure, while TOSCA is a standard for templating and defining application topology and policies (that form the basis for Heat). In this context, it really makes sense to put these all together to achieve application and network automation for OpenStack on steroids.

In this session we will learn how we can use the robust combination of Heat and TOSCA to configure and control resources on Nova and Neutron in order to automate the network configuration as part of the application deployment.

The session will include a demo and code examples that show how you can configure virtual networks, attach public IPs, set up security groups, set up load balancing and automatically scale up/down and more. You will leave this session understanding where Neutron meets Heat and TOSCA.

Huawei SoftCOM, Reshape the Future Way of Telco Industry Based on OpenStack
Carriers today are facing substantial challenges in transforming themselves in the new digital economy. The traditional service model, based on voice, SM, and best-effort broadband access and built on heavy-asset network infrastructure with high operation management costs, is no longer sustainable. The convergence of rapidly maturing technologies in software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and cloud is providing the new foundation for transforming existing carrier network infrastructures into open, abstracted, programmable, software-defined, and automated ones.

While these technology innovations are certainly disruptive, in reality carriers clearly want to take an evolutionary path to transform their existing multi-generation networks without service disruption. Hence, in order to ensure the success of this new wave of carrier transformation, it is important to identify high-priority projects that address immediately pressing issues in network infrastructure and/or business operation and undertake migration initiatives one at a time accordingly.

Every carrier has its unique issues at different stages and will have its own pace of migration, prioritizing different initiatives based on their needs. Huawei is proactively engaging with our customers and embarking on joint initiatives with them to help them implement their network business transformations without disruptions, under the grand vision named SoftCOM of moving towards the convergence of SDN, NFV, and cloud.

Avoiding the 'Perpetual Proof-of-Concept': Speeding Enterprise OpenStack Adoption with VMware
Interest in OpenStack is sky high among enterprises, but its no secret that charting the path to a full production deployment is often much trickier than expected.  All too often, the elation of booting that first OpenStack VM in your lab gives way to a so-called "perpetual proof-of-concept" as a team spends time learning how to operationalize new underlying compute, network, and storage platforms and adjusts everything from hardware purchasing to monitoring and troubleshooting practices accordingly.   

 In this talk, we'll explore a different route that lets IT administrators can quickly provide developers with the agility of the OpenStack APIs + ecosystem by leveraging the VMware infrastructure they already own and know how to operate.  

 We'll cover five case studies of enterprise customers to provided detailed answers to common answer questions like: 

- What are key points of confusion for a team of VMware admins who need to shift their role to become operators of an OpenStack cloud?

- what are the backgrounds + skillsets of VMware IT admins who have successfully made this jump to become OpenStack administrators?  Do they need to know Linux or python?

- To what degree do existing enterprise virtualization team roles need to change?  What new challenges arise? 

- What type of target workloads are the most common to deploy early in such an environment? 

- Which of my existing vSphere technologies/tools work in OpenStack?   What new gaps do I need to fill? 

- What OpenStack services do I need for a "bare-bones" setup?   How do users phase the deployment of more advanced services (e.g., Heat) in these environments? 

- What OpenStack vendors can I work with on this?  

 

Attend this talk and come away much better informed about whether OpenStack on vSphere is a model that can help you get to OpenStack faster.

Slaying The Salmon of Doubt
Working your way upstream is not easy. In this talk, I will explore how a team of software engineers in HP went from being closed-source enterprise developers to being a full house of ATCs and one core team member. I will look at the personal, departmental and institutional waterfalls that had to be flattened to achieve this.

Back in the day, we forked Diablo and worked feverishly behind closed doors to run v1 of our public cloud. Today we work upstream and run weeks behind trunk with only a handful of proprietary patches. We also offer a "Community Edition" release every 6 weeks that uses TripleO technology to encapsulate some of the learnings we got from running trunk at scale.

Group Based Policy Extension for Networking
The Group Based Policy (GBP) extension introduces a declarative policy driven framework for networking in OpenStack. The GBP abstractions allow application administrators to express their networking requirements using group and policy abstractions, with the specifics of policy enforcement and implementation left to the underlying policy driver. This facilitates clear separation of concerns between the application and the infrastructure administrator.




Over the past two release cycles, the GBP model has been incubated in Neutron as an extension. A new sub group has worked on defining this extension and  the proposed specification has been approved for implementation in the Juno release cycle. In this talk, we first discuss the GBP extension API and then present the reference implementation for it. In particular, we show how a new Service plugin is designed and developed in order to support this extension through a framework of configurable policy drivers similar to that used in the ML2 plugin. We will showcase the latest working version of the code, and provide an end-to-end demonstration of the features. We will also present several vendor and open source policy drivers that are being developed to support this new extension.

 

The work in Juno implements a subset of a more richer model that is intended for development in Kilo. We will provide a roadmap for the upcoming features including the integration with the advanced services (L4-7) framework. We will also discuss how the new extension can be utilized by other OpenStack projects.

Getting Started with OpenStack Python SDK


The OpenStack Python SDK is designed to improve developer experience by consolidating the various OpenStack python-* client libraries and command line interfaces into a unified, well designed, and user focused SDK ("Software Development Toolkit").  In this talk, we'd like to discuss what the Python SDK is, how it is designed, and how you can contribute to the project.

 

Currently, OpenStack's end user stories for both command-line and application developer consumers of OpenStack based clouds is confusing, fractured, and inconsistent. This means that if a non-operator or OpenStack developer attempts to consume more than a single service from a deployed OpenStack system, they face an uphill battle. With a consumer application requiring potentially 22 individual python-* clients to install, each with different APIs and nuances, it becomes increasingly difficult to consume OpenStack clouds.

 

The python-openstacksdk project proposes a new project with a single API namespace ("openstack") that would provide users with a single point of entry and series of supporting functions/methods from which to build applications and tools. As a side effect of this consolidation, it becomes very easy to derive a unified CLI, such as openstackclient, or specialized per-service CLI tools. However, it is important that the definition of SDK -- the compilation of the APIs and developer functions -- and CLI tools stay separate as it is easy to conflate the idea of "clients," which is the state we have today.

 

There are three major components of the OpenStack Python SDK: communication, authentication, and resources. The communication component of the SDK loosely follows the OSI Model for abstract layers of a protocol stack.  The authentication component is largely based on work done in the python-keystoneclient with legacy code removed.  The resource component generally follows that of an ORM (Object-relational mapping).

 

The project s git repository is https://github.com/stackforge/python-openstacksdk and we'd like to introduce the state of the project and discuss areas of greatest need for contribution.

Creating a Carrier-Grade Virtualized Network Function for Mobile Operators Using OpenStack
Mobile service providers are turning to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to quickly scale-up network capacity and scale-out the availability of network elements in a Telco Cloud, without the need to invest in discrete, proprietary physical network elements. At the same time, service providers require the solution to be "carrier-grade , with highly-available components and in-service upgrades, so as to provide a  five-nines  environment. 

In this presentation, we will talk about the components of the mobile packet core and how Openstack and OpenContrail are used to create one of industry's first virtualized SGSN/MME (Mobility Management Entity) solution built for cloud environments, and that runs on standard X86 servers. We will explain how we have made the solution a) optimized for cloud/virtual, b) carrier-grade , and c) talk about its deployment in one of the largest carrier's lab environment for a trial.

Automated Deployment of a Highly Available OpenStack Cloud
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.

Writing Enterprise Docs with an Upstream. A Life Lesson in Giving Back.
Working within a closed-source organization can be a very sterile method of development. Open Source, on the other hand, is anything but. Balancing the delicate relationship between enterprise-level development and upstream community groups is a study in extreme patience, and often involves way too many bald yaks and multi-coloured bike sheds.

Anne and Lana have been doing exactly this at both Rackspace and other organisations. The symbiotic and cyclical relationship between enterprise and upstream has forced them both to forge a new way of approaching their roles. This talk discusses the holistic view that is required when working with both internal and upstream development teams, and includes some dreams about getting the two to overlap just that little bit more.

Glint - Image Distribution in a Multi-Cloud Environment
P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; direction: ltr; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); widows: 2; orphans: 2; }P.western { font-family: "Cambria",serif; font-size: 12pt; }P.cjk { font-family: "DejaVu Sans"; font-size: 12pt; }P.ctl { font-size: 12pt; }

In the High Energy Physics (HEP) and Astronomy communities, we have been accustomed to handling many different Virtual Machine (VM) types on multiple OpenStack clouds for several years. Manually copying the VM images to the distributed repositories is labour intensive and prone to error. To reduce the management overhead and the number of errors associated with distributing VM images, we have developed an image distribution service called Glint. Glint is being developed as an OpenStack service, adhering to OpenStack's development and deployment architecture and accessible through modifications to the Horizon dashboard. The service uses keystone authentication and leverages the glance API to control image distribution across the network.

 

Glint provides functions to allow users to identify remote repositories and to distribute images to those repositories. Glint maintains a list of remote repositories for each tenant and, for each user of the remote repository, the user's credentials. Having defined both the repositories and the required credentials, the user can display a matrix of repositories and images, and use it to control the distribution of images. Within the cells of the image distribution matrix, check-boxes indicate the presence (checked) or absence (unchecked) of images within repositories. Users can toggle one or more check-boxes and press the "Save" key to effect image distribution. A separate thread is created for each selection and all operations are performed in parallel.

 

This presentation, will discuss the experience of HEP users over the past several months, highlighting the user interfaces, processing internals, and future developments.

Secure Keystone Deployment: Lessons Learned and Best Practices
In the Juno summit, Symantec presented it's perspective on securing Keystone.  Security is really a mindset and process. We proposed a layered security approach starting with the process for securing Keystone architecture, followed by securing the environment where Keystone is deployed and configured. Since then we have been implementing those security measures in our production environment. In this talk, we will discuss exactly how we have made our Keystone deployment secure and what we have learnt along the way.

 
Specifically, we will cover:



  • Keystone's LDAP capabilities




    • User account management




  • Two factor authentication


  • How to avoid storing plaintext password in configuration files?


  • Generic guidelines on how to secure OpenStack endpoints


  • Autonomous authentication using Trusts


  • How to secure Keystone event notifications?


  • Keystone Intrusion Detection

Using OpenStack Swift for Extreme Data Durability
Openstack Swift is a very powerful object storage that is used in several of the largest object storage deployments around the globe. It ensures a very high level of data durability and can withstand epic disasters if setup in the right way.

 

During this talk we want to give you an overview about the mechanism that are used within Swift to ensure data durability and availability, how to design your cluster using regions and zones and things you need to pay attention to, especially when enhancing an existing cluster.

 

This talk will deal with performance related issues that operators may have to face when updating an existing Swift cluster. Such changes may require big volumes of production data to flow between nodes, which can have an impact on the cluster s performance, not to mention the guarantee that no data is lost during the operation. In order to achieve such migration while ensuring good performance to Swift users a number of parameters have to be tuned. Monitoring tools will also play a role to ensure that your cluster behaves appropriately.

 

The talk will be concluded with an estimation of the data durability based on your Swift configuration.

Developing OpenStack as a Framework for NFV
Communication service providers embracing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are endorsing OpenStack as providing the common API Service Framework required to deliver their applications and services with a lower time to market. This desire for agility is in turn driving increasing pressure for OpenStack to meet the performance, reliability, and determinism requirements of this sector.

At the last OpenStack summit in Atlanta service providers and developers came together over the course of several "birds of a feather" (BoF) sessions to form a new OpenStack sub-team [1] with a stated goal of defining use cases to drive the identification and prioritization of requirements for enabling Network Function Virtualization (NFV) workloads on OpenStack clouds.

This presentation will briefly describe the structure and operation of the subteam as well as the relationship with other groups such as ETSI NFV before moving on to discuss the current realities of OpenStack as a Framework for NFV both in terms of progress made, and work still to be done.

Specific NFV use cases will be discussed before being linked to either outstanding gaps in OpenStack or to corresponding enablement work undertaken in the Juno cycle including:



  • CPU/NUMA topology awareness and pinning enhancements



  • Large pages enhancements



  • DPDK enablement



  • DPDK vSwitch enablement



  • SR-IOV enhancements




Finally we will discuss what still needs to be done and how you too can get involved in the NFV sub-team, helping to drive NFV enablement in the OpenStack community.

Well over a $100 million of venture and corporate capital has been poured into the OpenStack start-ups. Sounds like a lot, right? But compare that to adjacent open source segments such as Hadoop and Big Data, where start-ups close hundreds of millions in a single round and the number is laughable. So what should we all expect going forward? Is OpenStack still in the early days of its VC hype-cycles and should we expect OpenStack start-ups commanding billion dollar valuations and capital raises in 100M+ range? Or have we crossed the top of the hype, with industry now moving into the consolidation phase? See these and many other questions discussed between lively panel of VCs, who have all placed their bets on the OpenStack industry.

La Vie d un Paquet
OpenStack deployments for public or private clouds require strategies for building production-ready networks. Today s deployments require performance, resilience, and high availability to be considered truly production-ready.

In this session, we deep dive into the process of sending a data packet across an OpenStack environment through a network overlay. In a distributed architecture, network functions are applied in a single virtual hop. By applying network services right at the initiating host, the network is free from unnecessary clogging and bottlenecks by avoiding additional hops. 

A distributed architecture implements logical constructs that are used to build networks without a single point of failure, all while adding network functionality in a highly-scalable manner. Packets reach their destination more efficiently with the single virtual hop.

After this session, the audience will understand how distributed architectures allow efficient networking with routing decisions and network services applied at the edge. Also, the audience will understand how it s easier to scale clouds when the network intelligence is distributed.

Most folks know that there are a number of different flavors of MySQL -- standard MySQL, MariaDb, Percona XtraDb, MySQL Galera, Percona XtraDb Cluster, etc. However, there are a number of misconceptions and myths around the pros and cons of these flavors of MySQL.

In this talk, we hope to dispel some of these myths and give some clear information on what are the strengths and weaknesses of each of these flavors, what pitfalls to avoid when migrating between them, and what architectural information to take into account when planning your OpenStack MySQL database deployments. We will discuss replication topologies and techniques, and explain how the Galera Cluster variants differ from standard MySQL replication.

Finally, in the latter part of the session, we do a deep dive into MySQL database performance analysis. We will be analyzing the results of a Rally run showing a typical Nova workload, and demonstrate using pt-query-digest to determine if a synchronously-replication database cluster like Percona XtraDb Cluster is a good fit for certain OpenStack projects.

Software Defined Infrastructure: Provisioning and Managing an OpenStack Cloud
OpenStack is an open source project to enable enterprise and service provider building their own IaaS infrastructure, and it is fundamentally changing the landscape of enterprise IT.  Software defined infrastructure embraces the wave of software enabling technologies that fundamentally change the economics of compute, storage and networking. These visions are clear and widely adopted, and executions are happening.

This talk will introduce Intel s SDI initiatives that provide the enabling ingredients to cloud computing and software defined infrastructure; Huawei s deployment Ops initiatives that automate provision of distributed system, such as OpenStack infrastructure, on bare-metal resources; and Canonical s Juju initiatives that provide the application automation on cloud. Audience will get a reference design for thinking toward their own software defined infrastructure roadmap, from choosing hardware components all the way to the application management, with the great flexibility that cloud and SDI initiatives promised.

Deploying and Auto-scaling Applications on OpenStack with Heat
This session s goal is to illustrate how DevOps can use Heat to orchestrate the deployment and scaling of complex applications on top of OpenStack. In this example, we'll use the example of deploying OpenShift Origin (a PaaS) with multiple Brokers & Nodes, MongoDB, DNS requirements -  all of which can easily be deployed and managed using Heat (OpenStack's Native Orchestration tooling). We ll also cover creating images with OpenStack s Disk Builder and registering the images with Glance.

Starting with a walk-thru of the example deployment Heat Templates for OpenShift Origin (available in openstack github repository) We ll walk thru the existing templates and enhance them to provide additional functionalities such as positioning alarms, responding to alarms, adding instances, and auto-scaling.

As Heat is just one of a number of effective means for deploying and managing applications on OpenStack, we'll also give a quick overview of alternative examples as well including a walk-thru of an HA deployment using Puppet.

The Significance of an Open Cloud

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.

Building the Cloud Ecosystem OpenStack, Docker, Kubernetes


Summary:



Openstack has slowly and steadily grown into a main stream IaaS cloud solution provider technology. At Symantec, we have primarily used Openstack to virtualize our datacenters and help drive infrastructure automation to ensure maximum use of our compute, network and storage capabilities. But many of our enterprise use-cases demand more than just virtualized environments. There is a need for certain applications to run on linux container like environments and make use of some of the advantages provided by these platforms.



In this presentation we will talk about how Openstack can be used along with other open source cloud technologies to build an ecosystem to solve all use cases and problems faced by today s enterprise world. We will try to present a performance based evaluation of the three most popular technologies out there Openstack, Docker and Google s Kubernetes and propose a solution that may help you achieve infrastructure automation in its complete sense.

 

The following topics will be covered in this presentation:




· Categorize enterprise use cases that can be solved using Openstack, Docker or Kubernetes.




· Performance analysis and benchmarking




· How can Openstack be used as the central scheduling and orchestration engine to integrate with other open-source cloud technologies?

 

· Can the ecosystem eventually be scalable, reliable, secure and truly multi-tenant?

Walk on Water: 20 Stepping Stones to Reach Production OpenStack Cloud (for Execs, PMs, Architects)
Planning, engineering, and getting to done on an OpenStack private cloud project isn t simple, cheap, or risk-free. But this group presentation will help make your contemplated OpenStack adventure as simple as possible -- breaking down best-practice into manageable steps and meaningful decisions for executives, project managers, and technology architects.

 
Working from best-practice recipes developed and tested in dozens of real-world, production-scale OpenStack deployments, we ll explain just what you need to know to:





  • Lead OpenStack projects: getting them budgeted and launched with appropriate executive oversight and expectations




  • Manage OpenStack projects, end-to-end, with agility and efficiency (plus flexibility when the unexpected happens).




  • Architect OpenStack clouds (or collaborate effectively with architects): What to think about when designing a business-ready, robust cloud, and how to arbitrate design vs. bottom line conflicts.




We ll also tackle the problem of OpenStack complexity from the exec, PM and technologist viewpoints --  talk about how it affects each discipline s decision-making, and offer prescriptions for avoiding communications fails and enable good synch from project start to finish.
 

You ll leave this presentation with a tried-and-true organizational recipe for successful OpenStack cloud building, along with many practical tips for ensuring project success.

Pumphouse: Workload Migration and Rolling Upgrades of OpenStack Cloud
Just when you've safely got all your applications stood up in Grizzly, bam, it's time for Havana. So you scramble, but before you finish shutting workloads down, irritating users, and getting new machines, it Icehouse! Can you stop the madness?

 

 

It's no secret that OpenStack's upgrade path is ... less than optimal.  When you're ready to make the jump, you can simply go, buy new hardware and install a brand-new shiny OpenStack cluster with one of the many tools on the market.  But what are you going to do with applications that are already installed and working in your existing cloud? How to avoid the extended downtime while you ask all your users to shut down their workloads and move to the new installation?

 

 

And how much it will cost you to install a complete set of hardware for a replacement cloud with the same capacity as the original one?

 

 

Fortunately, there's Pumphouse. Pumphouse enables you to migrate virtual servers from a legacy OpenStack cloud to a running Icehouse installation, preserving the runtime parameters and metadata of those virtual servers as much as possible, without having to duplicate your entire hardware setup.  

 

 

In this session, I plan to explain use cases we ve been trying to solve, describe the migration strategy and migration paths we ve implemented, and give an overview of major limitations and requirements of our approach. I will also give a live(ly) demo of how the application works. We'll also look at the complementary tools required to make the deployment production ready.

Nuage Networks: OpenStack Neutron and Private Clouds
“Dorothy: Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Deployments of OpenStack in private cloud environments poses a set of requirements in the network architecture that are often completely different from those of a public cloud. Even though multi-tenancy is still a key requirement; regulatory issues, compliance, and business rules often dictate significantly different requirements. Whereas in public clouds, tenant networks are isolated in private address space, in private clouds interconnecting between cloud applications and existing resources needs to be achieved in several different ways. IP address management is often centralized and it is combined with policy and configuration management, especially for non-Linux workloads. Separation of networks is not just a tenant function, but often a regulatory function. During this talk we will outline several of the use cases that dominate the discussion in private cloud deployments.

Several datacenters were using folsom nova-network in the eBay production, with thousands VMs in service. We successfully upgraded to openstack Havana version, adopted neutron as network service instead of nova-network and replaced Linux bridge by Open vSwitch. One of the most important requirement to us was to avoid network service break for existing VM instances during nova-network to neutron migration, i.e. least downtime in the data plane.

In this session, we will share our story of the seamless migration from the folsom nova-network to havana neutron in the eBay production. The work covers both control plane and data plane. The control plane part includes neutron net/subnet/port management, and SDN controller integration, while the data plane part includes tap device migration from Linux bridge to openvswitch bridge, DHCP service, security group, and Libvirt/KVM configuration update.

PaaS and OpenStack - The Strategy for an Agile Enterprise
As OpenStack gains mainstream adoption, enterprises are looking for ways to unlock the value that a distributed, orchestrated IT infrastructure provides. Many are starting to introduce value-add platforms on top of OpenStack, in particular Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions, that promise to turn the staid legacy development processes and methodologies into an agile software factory, abstracting developers from infrastructure so they can focus on what they do best - code awesome applications that bring value to the enterprise and their customers.

But where should enterprises start? What are the dependencies and pre-requisites? What technology stack fits the current environment? Do skills need to be upgraded? Does the enterprise first have to transform processes and governance to take full advantage of the powerful combination of PaaS and OpenStack? And where do I start?

The presentation will help to answer these and other questions related to developing and executing a PaaS strategy in legacy enterprise environments. Participants will understand:

 



  • The main dependencies for deploying a successful PaaS Strategy



  • The common pitfalls when deploying PaaS in a legacy environment



  • How enterprises can move towards the creation of a "software factory"



  • The importance of agile



  • The KPIs that need to be tracked



  • The critical success factors required to deploy PaaS in an OpenStack environment



  • The synergies (and barriers) between PaaS platforms and OpenStack

Akanda: Layer 3+ Virtual Networking Services for OpenStack
DreamHost has been working on our OpenStack Public Cloud, DreamCompute, for several years. At the onset of the project, we set out with an aggressive set of requirements for our networking functionality, including L2 tenant isolation, IPv6 support from the ground up, and complete support for the then emerging OpenStack Neutron APIs. Our search ended with the realization that there was a gap in OpenStack SDN for L3+ services. Thus, the Akanda project was born.

Akanda is an open source suite of software, services, orchestration, and tools for providing L3+ services in OpenStack. It builds on top of OpenBSD, Packet Filter, and OpenStack Neutron, and is used in production to power DreamCompute's networking capabilities. Using Akanda, an OpenStack provider can provide tenants with a rich, powerful set of L3+ services, including routing, port forwarding, firewalling, and more.

This talk will give an introduction to the Akanda project, review the DreamCompute use case, and illustrate how Akanda works under the hood. In addition, we'll discuss future capabilities, operational challenges and tips, and more.

CI/CD Pipeline to Deploy and Maintain an OpenStack IaaS Cloud
In our role administering an OpenStack IaaS Cloud, we ve developed a release train allowing local development and testing of configuration management, testing in virtualised environments and automated deployment to staging and production, for the building and maintenance of an IaaS Cloud using upstream vendor OpenStack packages.
 

We will discuss the high-level concepts then review the details of our implementation and the tools we use, and created, to enable this pipeline.
 

We encourage software programming discipline to the administration of the Cloud infrastructure, with peer review, source code management and thorough testing before packaged releases.
 

Similarly, we encourage system administration discipline to configuration management code development, with deployments from scratch to volatile environments and upgrade deployments to stable environments.

 

Key elements of our approach are the use of upstream vendor packages for OpenStack (Ubuntu); configuration management (SaltStack); unit testing of configuration management (Test Kitchen with Kitchen-salt); Git, Gerrit and Gitshelf for source control management, peer review and packaging from git repos; volatile local development and remote test environments, using Vagrant and salt-cloud; and automated testing, packaging and deployment with the aid of Jenkins.

 

We will outline the CI/CD pipeline:



  1. Provision a multi-node, multi-network OpenStack development environment using Vagrant with Virtualbox (nova-qemu) with virtualised nodes representing a minimal region, and a salt-master with a file_roots tree built as per production.





  2. Develop salt configuration management code within this development environment. All installation and administration is managed with SaltStack, with both incremental upgrade and full bootstrap deployment testing.





  3. Push changes to Gerrit for both peer review and testing in discrete development environment instances, and unit testing with Test Kitchen via Jenkins.





  4. Automatically package a new release in a specific deploy-kit repo, using Gitshelf to build release tarball artifacts from a YAML file of code repo SHA1s.





  5. Automatically deploy to test environments in Public Cloud.





  6. Automatically deploy to real hardware in staging and production.

Nuage Networks: Pets, Cattle and Herding Dogs
Randy Bias and Bill Baker first illustrated the parallel of cloud applications to "pets and cattle”, by setting the primitives for scale-out and applications that can tolerate failure. For the cloud applications, (ie cattle), an often forgotten aspect though is the "herding dogs", or simply the control plane that will manage the lifecycle of the cloud and the applications. And as in every cattle, the herding dogs are critical for the survival of the cattle, so is the control plane in a scale out cloud. In this talk will focus specifically on the network control plane and outline the key requirements in terms of performance, reliability, and scale. We will then focus specifically on OpenStack Neutron and present some examples of functions that result in asymptotically quadratic operations that significantly limit scalability. We will present alternative implementations based on SDN controllers that remove these bottlenecks from the Neutron server, and enable the seamless scale of OpenStack clouds.

Design and Operation of OpenStack Cloud on 100 Physical Servers (NTT DOCOMO)
You will face many problems when you start designing your OpenStack Cloud because of a lack of full design architecture information. For example, there are many Neutron plugins, but it is difficult to choose the best plugin and its configuration to get a high throughput of a Virtual Machine (VM) and achieve a High Availability (HA) of L3 Agent. Also, we couldn't find information for how much computing resource (CPU, Memory and HDD) is required for management and operation servers (e.g. API, RabbitMQ, MySQL and Monitoring etc.).

We built OpenStack Icehouse Cloud on 100 physical servers (1600 physical cores) without using commecial software, and did several performance and long-run tests to address these problems.

In this talk, we will present performance comparison of Neutron ML2 plugin implementations (Open vSwitch and Linux Bridge), tunnelling protocols (GRE and VXLAN) and physical network configurations (Network Interface Bonding and Server Side Equal Cost Multi Path) to achieve 10Gbps at a VM, and the L3 Agent HA we implemented. Also, we will present how much computing resource we used and each server loads to operate the cloud. Finaly, we will share our Ansible Based OpenStack deployment and management tool.

Key topics include:

- Performance comparison of OSS Neutron ML2 plugins (Open vSwitch and Linux Bridge) and tunneling protocols (GRE and VXLAN)

- Performance comparision of redundant network configurations (Network Interface Bonding and Server Side Equal Cost Multi Path)

- HA of L3 Agent (ACT/STBY) we implemented

- Ansible based deployment/operation tools

- Items we must watch for OpenStack operation

- Hardware specifications and resources we used to operate the Cloud

We will share a full design architecture and hardware sizing information for a large scale cloud and prove OSS based Neutron can handle a hundred servers.

Making OpenStack Safe for Pets
Many Enterprise customers are well on their way towards adopting OpenStack for (at least) the Cattle rich pastures of their test & DevOps infrastructure, and are increasingly interested in consolidation of existing enterprise applications and mission critical services into that same infrastructure and management paradigm.

Many of those applications exhibit needs and characteristics more like Pets rather than Cattle however, presenting a barrier both for consolidation and broader adoption of cloud / OpenStack by the Enterprise.

While some have argued that Cloud / OpenStack is simply the wrong infrastructure for pet-like applications, we would posit that isn't and shouldn't be the case.  

In this talk, we will talk about trends that we are seeing with respect to adoption of OpenStack by Enterprise customers, and how that is driving our investment in OpenStack as well as our underlying compute, networking, storage, Operating System and virtualization technologies. We will talk about ways in which Oracle plans to contribute to OpenStack, and what we believe are the key areas of investment needed to address the needs of cloud wanting Enterprise customers, including high-availability cloud services, fault-tolerant cloud infrastructure, simplified cloud lifecycle management and more.

While the day may come when Enterprise applications can be thought of as Cattle, until then significant value exists in meeting the needs of Enterprise customers wanting their pets to thrive in the cloud, and who tend to think of their cloud infrastructure as pet-like too. Eric Saxe will co-present this session.

Neutron Network Node High Availability
Today, you can configure multiple network nodes to host DHCP and L3 agents. In the Icehouse release, load sharing is accomplished by scheduling virtual routers on L3 agents. However, if a network node or L3 agent goes down, all routers scheduled on that node will go down and connectivity will be lost. The Juno release will introduce L3 high availability as well as distributed routing.

L3 high availability schedules routers on more than a single network node. Stand-by routers use keepalive (And the VRRP protocol internally) to monitor the active router and pick up the slack in case of a failure. We'll explain what is VRRP and how will the feature affect the network node, as well as give a demonstration.

Distributed routing, or DVR, moves routing to the compute nodes, while keeping SNAT on the network nodes.

We'll talk about DHCP HA, go into a conceptual overview of both L3 HA and DVR, give demonstrations, and explain how to integrate them together to get the best of both worlds.

CI/CD in Practice: Real World Deployment and Management


What does it take to manage continuous automated delivery in 20 and counting openstack installations across the country?  What types of checks and balances do you have to make, how are upgrades most effectively implemented without failures?  How can we make the complexity of openstack simpler and more direct and ensure that we have a re-useable and scalable internal build and deployment process for all of these installs and upgrades?  

In this session, we will talk though how to design a CI/CD process that fits your organization, what has worked and what has blown up in our face along the way leading to the system that we have in place today.  From developer/ops best practices to custom packaging, repo management, and deployment we will be walking through a full lifecycle along with community tools available to save others time.  Without a consistant way to deploy and potentially patch and build custom openstack within your organization quickly, there is a risk of falling behind.  By designing a valid and well thought out CI/CD process and implementation this can be prevented!

Building Telco Grade Cloud Services with OpenStack

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.

Meet the OpenStack Ambassadors
Ambassadors are recognised on the OpenStack website for their efforts and provided with support from foundation staff to conduct their duties. They will also get access to a funding program allowing them to request funds for activities of impact in their region. We d also expect ambassadors to attend the summits, and the Foundation would likely assist if it wasn t possible for them to be there using their own methods.

Ambassador Attributes

Act as a liason between user groups, the Foundation, and the general community, for example: 


  • helping to solicit feedback on OpenStack and aggregate it to the global level

  • promoting key messages into the user communities (eg ask questions on ask.openstack.org! )

  • finding people to help localise content

  • helping onboard new users and contributors

  • Assist in user group best practice from nurturing new groups to cementing the quality of existing ones

  • Help people find the right people to talk to

  • Represent the community via speaking and visibility opportunities with the official title

  • Report on the activities in their region

  • Be a good leader, wranging activity from others and mobilising the global OpenStack community!




The title is designed to recognise those who are already good leaders with a proven track record in the community. With the title, new users, contributors and community members should easily be able to recognize their Ambassador as a go-to resource. While the role provides inherent credibility, it also comes with accountability, meaning decisions and actions made by the Ambassador should benefit the whole community, not just one person or company.

We believe that the Ambassadors will already be active participants in our community. Think about those people who are already working across multiple user groups, submitting OpenStack mini-events to related conferences, helping onboard new users and contributors, arranging hackfests or just generally going above and beyond in the name of making Openstack great.

Meet the OpenStack Ambassadors.

OpenStack and vSphere/vCenter: Best Practices for 'Classic' Enterprise and Cloud-ready Apps
One reason VMware s vSphere has been well received by enterprises is that it supports high availability for mission-critical classic-design application workloads. OpenStack has sometimes suffered by comparison: it s typically characterized as better for hosting distributed applications that provide for their own high availability. Happily, VMware can solve this problem for OpenStack, along with issues of distributed resource scheduling and other enterprise IT requisites.

In this session speakers from VMware and Mirantis will discuss best practices for integrating vSphere/vCenter with OpenStack, and describe ways of leveraging well-known VMware features (HA, DRS and others) for different kinds of applications encountered in enterprise cloud environments.

You ll come away with a solid understanding of how vSphere/vCenter integration works in OpenStack, how native VMware features can be configured to protect the integrity of mission-critical workloads and provide other services OpenStack presently lacks, and see how OpenStack and VMware can cooperate in enterprise clouds to nurture the important applications on which so many businesses still depend.

Can You Trust Neutron? A Tour of Scalability and Reliability Improvements from Havana to Juno
It is a widely known fact that Neutron has been for a long time under the spotlight for being the "naughty" openstack integrated project, constituting, to an extent, Openstack's weak link.

The network is a crucial component, and Neutron provides a network virtualization framework which enables layer-2 tenant isolation, VIF level firewall with security group as well as layer-3 routing, as well as several L4/L7 services.

This talk is aimed at discussing the evolution of this framework from havana to Juno.

However, rather than focusing on aspects such as features and capabilities, this talk will rather focus on aspects which probably are a lot more important to deployers, such as reliability and scalability.

The talk agenda can be summarized as follows:

- An overview of the issues affecting Openstack neutron at the Havana release

- A discussion of the improvements made to Neutron, and in some cases to Nova as well

- A quantitative measuring of the improvements occurred between Havana and Juno in terms of performance, and scalability. This will be achieved comparing Neutron's "reference" Open source solution (ML2 with OVS) between these two release, as well as comparing it against another plugin which will be used as a reference to measure the progress of Neutron's network virtualization framework.

OpenStack Ops Using Serf and Puppet
While many OpenStack operators use Puppet to manage their deployment, either using home grown modules or via a product such as Fuel, orchestrating and reacting to changes in the cluster using Puppet can be difficult as Puppet has no elegant way to signal remote nodes. Serf is a relatively new project written in Go and using the Raft protocol that can be used to detect events within a cluster and react to those events.

As an Openstack operator, using the two in concert leads to a neat way to react to changes in cluster membership, load and failures using Serf without compromising the configuration management of the system via Puppet. This is done by running Puppet in a fully data driven way, with all data ingested from heira, and letting a Serf agent modify that data based on events it sees in the cluster before pushing events out to the rest of the cluster to realise the change.

This session will cover the basics of how we use Serf in conjunction with Puppet to manage production OpenStack clusters at Aptira, show off the potential benefits, some hiccups we discovered along the way and provide a basis for discussion of using cluster tools Serf with configuration management systems like Puppet.

Converged Cloud Computing That's Secure, Fast, or Cheap: Pick Three
Containers are driving down the overhead that has been necessary for traditional virtualization. But there have been serious tradeoffs made with their adoption. Containerization's resource sharing approach is exposing more of the host system. We're choosing to compromise the isolation of executables from kernel, accepting it as an inevitable price for low overhead. In multi-tenant environments, that's a heck of a gamble.

Tightrope acts like that do not need to happen. 

ZeroVM has taken an entirely distincive approach to lightweight virtualization: strong security, from the beginning. Processes are kept on lockdown, jobs are horizontally scalable, and they execute with such fine-grained accuracy that metering by the second is no problem. End the cost-inefficiencies of metering by minutes and hours.

ZeroVM provides a secure execution environment for untrusted code, by applying the Chromium project's proven Native Client (NaCl) technology for validation and sandboxing. Moreover, when paired with OpenStack Swift, the two become a unique platform for executing arbitrary queries within a datastore, using any language of one's choosing.

We'll walk through the basics of the ZeroVM open source project, compelling use cases, and opportunities to take advantage of ZeroVM + Swift -- for solving problems at scale without compromising on either security, speed, or affordability.

Docker Meets Swift: A Broadcaster's Experience
RAI (Radiotelevisione Italiana), Italy's national public broadcasting company, has to deal with the growing cost for new storage hungry media formats (e.g., 4K UHDTV), while also enabling its employees to collaborate and manage content across geographically separated sites throughout the media production cycle. To address these needs, we have integrated Docker with Swift via a generic mechanism we call "storlets". Integrating Docker with Swift keeps the storage cost low as well as co-locating compute to avoid costly network transfer for a wide range of media workflows. In this talk we will present the problem RAI is solving including its requirements, present the storlet mechanism, demonstrate how storlets can be used for media workflows and other scenarios, and place our work in the context of other efforts.

Orchestrating Docker with OpenStack
The Nova driver for Docker has been maturing rapidly since its mainline removal in Icehouse. During the Juno cycle, substantial improvements have been made to the driver, and greater parity has been reached with other  virtualization drivers. We will explore these improvements and what they mean to deployers.

Eric will additionally showcase deployment scenarios for the deployment of OpenStack itself inside and underneath of Docker for powering traditional VM-based computing, storage, and other cloud services.

Finally, users should expect a preview of the planned integration with the new OpenStack Containers Service effort to provide automation of advanced containers functionality and Docker-API semantics inside of an OpenStack cloud.

Performance Tuning a Cloud Application - A Real World Case Study

During the OpenStack summit in Atlanta, Symantec presented on our vision for a Key Value as a Service storage technology utilizing MagnetoDB.  Since then our Cloud Platform Team has rolled the service out in our production environments.  Through that process we have learned about tuning requirements of the solution on bare metal versus hosted VMs within an OpenStack environment.


Our initial performance testing was done with MagnetoDB running on bare metal nodes.  After migrating the service from bare metal to an OpenStack VM hosted environment, we observed a 50% reduction in performance.


This presentation will dig in to the technical details of performance tuning an application running on an OpenStack Nova Compute cluster.  We will examine the performance related configuration settings necessary to improve the hosted application from three different angles:




  1. the underlying compute node Operating System configuration





  2. the hypervisor virtualization layer





  3. and the Guest VM and Application stack 



We will provide an outline for other cloud operators to follow when they work towards performance tuning an application running in your own OpenStack cloud.  Specific topics that will be covered include:





  • compute hardware configuration and the impact on performance





  • compute operating system configuration and tuning





  • KVM hypervisor performance tuning parameters





  • guest VM configuration and how they relate to your application stack





  • guest Operating System configuration and tuning details





  • application performance tuning






At the end of this presentation you should have a guideline on how to approach performance tuning an application running in your OpenStack environment.

Ladies and gentlemen boys and girls dyin time s here.  

No, not really. But in this session, five highly opinionated Stackers will lock horns over the best way to bring about global dominance of OpenStack as the default cloud-building platform. 

Jesse Proudman of Blue Box, Randy Bias of Cloudscaling, Alex Freedland of Mirantis, Chris Kemp of Nebula, and Christopher MacGown of Piston will each argue their cases for the roles that distros, appliances, managed services, PCaaS, public cloud, consulting/training/DIY and the Foundation have to play in leveraging OpenStack s meteoric rise to prominence into the dominant cloud-building platform it seems destined to become.

Keeping all these opinions in check and guiding the table-pounding and voice-raising to something constructive will be Caroline McCrory of GigaOm Research. Bring your opinions but check your assumptions at the door, and enter the room with an open mind.

Rackspace's OnMetal launched in July as the first and only deployment of Ironic on the public cloud. Rackspace has since scaled Ironic to manage thousands of servers in a multitenant environment.

This talk will discuss the challenges we faced while deploying and scaling OnMetal. Ironic's architecture allows for a straightforward HA model and horizontal scaling, but there were (as always) performance issues that set our team back while growing our production environment. These issues came to life on both the Nova and Ironic side of the control plane.

This talk will also cover how we brought a new deploy model to Ironic that fixed some core architectural issues with the default deploy driver, while also allowing Ironic to do more interesting things with hardware that it manages.

Navigating the OpenStack Ecosystem
If you take one look at the OpenStack ecosystem, you can see that enterprise adoption is in full swing. For enterprises businesses to take full advantage of any technology, a vibrant ecosystem is key. Enterprise businesses do not adopt technology in silos. Silos, will not provide the complete solution needed by these businesses. The OpenStack Ecosystem is growing rapidly. The history of this ecosystem can be seen in the diversity of distro players, but in the past few cycles, there has been a clear expansion into a much wider range of solution and services. 

This session will cover who s who in the OpenStack ecosystem and show you how you can use this growing ecosystem to create complete enterprise solutions with OpenStack. This will cover areas like:






  • OpenStack Marketplace



  • Training Services



  • Distros & Appliances



  • Public Cloud Providers



  • Consulting and Integration Services



  • Virtual Desktop Solutions



  • PaaS Solutions



  • Block and Object Storage Solutions



  • Subscription solutions for consumption of OpenStack in both a public and private model.



  • OpenStack Management Solutions



  • Virtual Machine availability



  • Management Solutions






Embracing the ecosystem is key to the success of any OpenStack deployment. Getting an understanding of what is available is a critical success factor for any installation. There is a larger ecosystem out there that provides software and services to meet the business needs of the enterprise. This session will show you how to find your way around this diverse and growing environment.

Tuning OpenStack for Availability and Performance in Large Production Deployments


Symantec is building a large scale OpenStack based cloud platform to host products and services that provide security to our customers. As we build development, staging and production environments, we continue to learn and optimize our architecture and configuration for high availability, performance and security.

 

OpenStack has many moving parts that need to be taken into consideration when control services are deployed. We will share our learnings and deployment patterns of highly available and secure control services as well as challenges and issues that we are working on.  In this session we will share our learnings and will cover following topics:

 




  • RabbitMQ A/A clustering





  • Mysql A/A Clustering





  • Nova compute/api/conductor HA and tuning





  • Keystone





  • KVM





  • Config Management






Attendees will leave the session better prepared to architect their highly scalable, available and secure OpenStack control and data plane.

Build Your Own Disaster? The Safe Way to Make Ceph Storage Enterprise Ready!
Ceph is a mature platform for software-defined storage environments scaling to dozens or hundreds of PetyBytes. However real life implementation, operations and maintenance are complex tasks. Ensuring the right compatibility of software and hardware, avoiding bottlenecks between storage nodes, keeping the complete stack running, exchanging end-of-life hardware and operating the complete stack efficiently may create substantial efforts and risks for IT. Playing around with petabyte-scale storage is no option and reliable service levels are key. Fujitsu presents an easy solution how to move from “Build your own disaster” to an enterprise class service level way of using Ceph based storage.

Sponsor Demo Theater - it-novum: Open Cloud Storage. Building a Flexible and Large-scale Software-defined Storage Platform for 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.

Tips to Implementing Multiple Cloud Storage APIs
When customers ask for support of a given API, can a vendor survive if they ignore these requests? A strategy many vendors are taking is to support multiple APIs with a single implementation. Besides the Swift API, many support the S3 defacto and CDMI standard APIs in their implementation. What is needed for these APIs to co-exist in an implementation? There are basic operations that are nearly identical between them, but what about semantics that have multiple different expressions such as metadata?

 Come to this session to learn about and discuss various ways to cope with this situation. We will discover best practices and tips on how to implement multiple protocols in your cloud storage solution.

Migrating Production Workloads from OVS to Linux Bridge w/ ML2
While OpenVswitch has proven incredibly useful for environments with a need for rapidly changing networks, it has some shortcomings in more compact environments with a less robust or redundant infrastructure. In order to provide a more stable environment for our customers, we have chosen to use the ML2 plugin with Linux Bridge.

We'll discuss how we were able to migrate private cloud environments from OpenVswitch using the OVS plugin to the Linux Bridge plugin under ML2 without having to redefine networks or unplug or re-IP instances. We'll demonstrate configuration file and database changes, procedures and best practices we found during the migration. Finally, we will discuss the pros/cons and capabilities of each product and make users aware of any caveats that they may expect with this particular migration.

Setting the Stage in Open Cloud
In this opening talk we take the open source practitioner's perspective to look at policy issues raised by a key question in the value chain of open source cloud software innovation: will the code be successful? From its beginnings of landmark projects developed by individuals, open source software has evolved into a support mechanism for innovations carried out by ecosystems of companies and research organizations working together in collaborative projects. We will look at several  open source cloud-oriented collaborative projects including some from the European Open Cloud Directory and see how, while these innovative ecosystems create breakthrough technologies, they do not aim at delivering market-ready products. These projects confront us with what we call the Delivery Challenge of open source innovation: i.e. how to guarantee the operational quality of these innovations, how to turn these innovations into competitive offerings. While large users are quickly getting familiar with cloud technologies, offering the benefits of the cloud to SMEs is still a necessary evolution. This market will be ripped by a, emerging breed of service vendors with packaged mature offerings helping SMEs make the best out of their own infrastructure and the heterogenous cloud ecosystem.

Leveraging Existing Identity Sources for OpenStack Clouds
Keystone is the reference implementation of the Identity API in OpenStack. It needs to deal with traditional identity concepts such as users and groups as well as centrally managing authorization. This session will cover how Keystone can leverage existing identity sources for authentication and identity information and instead focus on it's primary job of centrally managing access to cloud services and resources.

Keystone has a pluggable architecture that allows it to work with different identity sources. These options range from storing identity information locally to using external identity sources such as an LDAP server or a SAML identity provider. Nearly all companies and organizations already have an existing authoritative identity source that provides centralized authentication and user and group information. Configuring Keystone to use this central identity source is a popular goal for those deploying OpenStack, yet its not straight-forward to actually accomplish due to variations of different identity sources.

In this presentation, Nathan Kinder will review how Keystone has evolved around the concept of identity to date.  An overview of the very latest options for handling identity information will be provided, along with the pros and cons of the available approaches. We will also discuss how Keystone can leverage existing identity sources to provide strong authentication mechanisms in addition to discussing more complex scenarios such as using multiple external identity sources from a single Keystone instance.

Suning.com and Heat, Explore and Enable Elastic Cluster for Internet Applications

Suning Cloud Commerce is one of the largest privately owned retailers in China. Suning has more than 1600 stores covering over 700 cities of Mainland China, Hong Kong and Japan, and its e-commerce platform, Suning.com ranks among top three Chinese B2C companies. There are more than 180,000 employees, thousands of mixed power, x86, storage servers and tens of thousands of virtual machines from several large data center across China, HongKong and Japan. KVM, oVirt and virtualization technologies are widely used, and there are also very large server farm for VDI.

Suning starts OpenStack journery from Jun 2013, and in 2014, an OpenStack based production environment has been put in use, to server Android Mobile Application and Service, Search Engine, Retailer related business needs, plus critical code repository server. More than half are resource intensive and heavy loaded virtual machines Cinder multi-backend provides extra storage by leveraging LVM and Gluster. A light VDI solution to serve desktop users by leveraging open source spice. Within this deployment, network separated and openvswitch bonding is supported.

The successful story leads to large scale OpenStack deployment, and heat's auto-scaling pretty fits the scenarios for Suning's popular Internet applications. Here we use Heat to assiste 2 kinds of applications:


  1. Eleastic Web computation. The web cluster that we are using is IHS + WAS, it is one of major web applications that serve tens of million visitors, and the visits changes sharply. We need to adjust the cluster scale based on visits and also CPU load;



  2. Real-time image thumbnail processing. This requires to generate image and document preview, plus real-time video-transcoding. The distributed scheduling framework is used, Beyond this, we also leverage OpenStack Heat, to dynanically create or destroy workers based on requests. For example, there are concurrent image thumbnail requests, at minimum, there are less than 10 works per seconds to serve the requests. However during peak time, there might be thousands of workers to be created. This demand the clusters to be expand or shrink fully automated and fast response. Once the request volume drop down, the resources should be released immediately to be reused by other kind of jobs.




We will share our story, experience and practice to enable such kind of big cloud and how to support them, best practise and lesson learn.

Team Gender Diversity - Working with the Other 50%
The statistics are grim. Women make up only 20 percent of the programmers and 31 percent of the technology workforce as a whole. With technology playing a greater role in business than ever before, the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts an astounding 22.2 percent growth in the computer-related job marketcompared to an expected 10 percent overall growth. OpenStack as a community embraces diversity -- or at least that is what we say. we do.  The industry and the OpenStack community simply cannot afford to lose the opportunity to tap into 50 percent of the talent pool solely because they are female.

It is no secret that there is a small but growing number of great women who are contributing to the OpenStack Community in an amazing number of ways.  Working in teams where not everyone is the same gender has its own set of challenges.  This is a panel discussion with some of the women leaders in the community where we will share ways of encouraging more diversity on teams and tips and tricks on how that can be achieved.

Under the Hood with Nova, Libvirt, and KVM (Part Two)
The Libvirt driver for Nova is one of the most comprehensive implementations across all supported hypervisors.  It is quite common for new functionality to be added Libvirt before other drivers.  During Part One (http://bit.ly/1tUZocH), we began to scratch the surface of this topic, and now it's time to get into the weeds. 

During this session, we will dive into more detail about Nova, Libvirt and QEMU: 

Commonly overlooked configuration considerations for Libvirt/QEMU.

Which areas of the Nova Libvirt driver are most brittle and why?

What happens when operations fail of complete impartially? How can we recover?

Libvirt s interface into QEMU s Monitor Protocol (QMP).

Live migration, block migration, migrate and suspend: What are the differences and how do they work?  What parts is Nova handling, versus Libvirt and QEMU?

Understand Libvirt s XML-based instance definitions.

If you missed my talk in Atlanta and are planning to attend Part Two, I encourage watching the video.  We ll be picking up right where we left off.

Neutron Roundtable: Overlay or Full SDN?


Neutron offers multiple ways to implement networking. It's not only a matter of vendor choice, but also a choice of networking models. Should the tenants of your cloud be allowed to place requests that would directly modify the configuration of your hardware, or would you like them confined in virtual land? What are the limits of each models and can they be combined? Why would you need access to BGP/OSPF layers from Neutron? What about VPNs or MPLS?

In this roundtable we will ask 5 OpenStack Networking experts to prepare a 5 min position statement on which model they prefer and for what purposes, then we will open the floor to a debate within the group and with the public.

Learning to Scale OpenStack: Juno Update from the Rackspace Public Cloud


Rackspace invites the OpenStack community to hear the story of deployments at scale during the Juno cycle and share in the latest challenges, triumphs, and lessons learned from regularly upgrading the control plane of a production OpenStack public cloud. At the end of Icehouse, there were about 40,000 things in the public cloud to deploy to. How many deploy things will there be at the end of Juno? Did control plane releases speed up or slow down? Is Rackspace still looking at releasing every two weeks from upstream trunk?



Rainya Mosher will take you through the release and deploy process utilized within Rackspace, starting with a developer working on code upstream and ending with final delivery to six production environments. She ll highlight how changes to the packaging, gating, and deployment mechanisms have improved cycle times within the release and deploy process. She'll share stats on the state of OpenStack deployments at Rackspace, the impact the migration to Neutron had on release cycles, and performance improvements achieved in terms of speed and reduced customer impact. Rainya will end by looking forward to what is planned for the Kilo cycle that will make releases more visible and deployments less impactful for Rackspace and the entire deployer community.

OpenCloudware: The vApp Lifecycle Management Solution for Multi-Cloud
The main way to “go cloud” has proved to be, for security and  economic reasons, hybrid : mixing private with public. Moving to Cloud  PaaS is then requires to: manage the lifecycle of applications over  different cloud providers; mask the heterogeneity; automate the  deployment whatever the application technology and execution environment  are, etc. This is what tackles OpenCloudware, which aims at enabling  flexible multi-cloud applications thanks to a full automated  think-build-run chain. 
<p>In the presentation we present a sample  from OpenCloudware results demonstrating in particular a complete  mechanism, comprising: application selection, deployment, benchmarking.  OpenCloudware supports many IaaS infrasctructures, including OpenStack (via OW2stack). OpenCloudware is supported by the French administration through its IT  support program "Fond National pour la Société Numérique".

Docker All The OpenStack Services
Managing the lifecycle of OpenStack's services is no easy task. In this session users will learn about the lifecycle management challenges faced by enterprises deploying OpenStack including:

   Using lifecycle management tools with a fast moving development model
   Ensuring service isolation
   Maximizing utilization of resources by consolidating services

Currently, lifecycle management tools are attempting to solve these problems, but the approach requires far too much logic within the management tool and is inefficient. Virtual machines are also being used by many, but involve too much overhead and lack rich metadata without complex configuration management tools.

Enter Docker, Kubernetes, and Atomic which hold the promise of a more efficient and reliable way of managing the lifecycle of OpenStack services. After exploring the challenges and shortcomings of current methods of lifecycle management of OpenStack services attendees will learn how Docker, Kubernetes, and Atomic can be used to solve these challenges and reduce deployment complexity. Users will learn:

   How performing automated Docker builds of OpenStack services on commits can increase developer    productivity
   The benefits of deploying OpenStack services in containers from Docker images using Kubernetes    templates on hosts
   Considerations when deploying OpenStack services as containers and the future of container based  deployment orchestration and management

Using Ceilometer Data to Detect Fraudulent Activity in Our OpenStack Cluster


Ceilometer, initially meant for billing, has been used for many other innovative and creative purposes in the past. There are many possible uses. However, can we use it to detect fraudulent activity happening in our OpenStack installation?

In this conference we are going discuss how much we can detect using Ceilometer, showing results where we successfully detect some fraudulent activities such as an internal DDoS attack or the now popular Bitcoin mining,discussing what kind of metrics and intervals we need to achieve it and how we can all do it in our own OpenStack deployments.

Troubleshooting Problems in Heat Deployments
Designed to deploy composite cloud applications, the OpenStack Heat orchestration engine is a convenient and powerful automation tool.  Unfortunately, when a failure happens during the provisioning and configuration of resources, diagnosing the cause of the problem can be a difficult proposition for the end user. In this talk, we first describe a number of ad hoc troubleshooting techniques which Heat users have been resorting to that have proved effective as well as the new enhancements delivered with the Juno release that could make this process easier.

In addition, we will describe recent proposals made by the community aiming to mitigate the troubleshooting pain, including a template debugger inspired by debuggers for traditional programming languages and making the OpenStack logs available to the end users for debugging.  Finally, we will propose a new approach for troubleshooting a wide range of failures by analyzing (1) the OpenStack logs as they are made available to the end users, (2) snapshots of the cloud state, and (3) the HOT template itself and demonstrate end-to-end scenarios helping end users diagnose the error, fix the template, and successfully redeploy.

Bringing Research to the Cloud: the NeCTAR Research Cloud
Australian researchers are reaping the benefits of access to an accessible, collaborative and scalable OpenStack-based cloud computing infrastructure provided through the NeCTAR project.

Modern research is increasingly collaborative in nature and dependent on access to large scale research data, sophisticated computational models and research domain-oriented software tools and services. The NeCTAR Research Cloud is providing a national computational infrastructure supporting the computational and collaboration needs of a rich diversity of research domains and scientific disciplines in Australia: from the hard sciences to the humanities and cultural studies.

This talk will tell some of those stories: of the research communities, large and small, who are using the NeCTAR Research Cloud as a platform to provide collaborative access to research data, scientific models and research computing tools. Stories to be covered will be drawn from Astronomy, Marine Science, Geophysics, Biology, Genomics, Environmental Science and the Humanities. We will show how cloud computing is supporting improved innovation, efficiency and productivity in research.

We will also discuss our interest and first steps in supporting interoperability and collaborative access with similar initiatives around the world.

The NeCTAR Research Cloud has supported Australian research since January 2012 and has helped to bring more and more Australian research into the cloud . The NeCTAR Research Cloud comprises 8 regional sites (nodes) operating as a federation of Cells within a single national OpenStack cloud fabric. The Research Cloud currently comprises over 15,000 CPU cores, and will grow to 30,000 CPU cores before the end of 2014.

The Numbers of the Open Cloud
The talk will present a quantitative analysis of the projects producing the main free, open source software cloud platforms: OpenStack, Apache CloudStack, OpenNebula and Eucalyptus. The analysis will focus on the communities behind those projects, their main development parameters, and the trends that can be observed.

Understanding the inner life of free / open source software projects is of fundamental importance to developers, users and decision makers. This talk will help to understand what's happening behind the curtains in the most relevant open cloud platforms, by analyzing the rich data obtained from their developing repositories.

The talk will cover, for the four analyzed projects, the following topics:



  •     How open is their development model, and to which extent they provide access to their development data.



  • Some parameters related to the overall activity and effort put into the development and maintenance of their products.



  • The main characteristics of their development community: size, diversity, engagement, attraction, etc.



  • The main parameters characterizing their performance, such as time-to-fix tickets or time-to-review patches.



  • Some visualizations of the most relevant aspects.




All the tools used to produce the analysis presented in this talk are free, open source software, based on the Grimoire technology, http://vizgrimoire.github.io. The talk will also provide some hints on how to reproduce the study, on these or other projects.

Illustrative example of the kind of information that will be presented: OpenStack Grimoire Dashboard, http://activity.openstack.org/dash

The XLcloud project strives to establish the demonstration of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) platform based on OpenStack that is designed to run a representative set of compute intensive workloads. Two Use Cases will be demonstrated during this presentation. First, the interventional radiology use case of the XLCloud project has the goal to show that the XLCLoud platform can be used to leverage an application requiring both interaction and high performance computing. This simulator, developed by CEA and Esprimed, allows medical staff  to prepare or replay an intervention in a 3D interactive environment (manipulation of the radiological system, position of people and their protections) while having the benefit of precise estimation of the dose they are exposed to through a 3D monte carlo simulation optimized in order to provide results in interactive time. The second use case will be based on cloud gaming and 3D visualization. XLcloud is a three-year long collaborative project funded by the French FSN (Fonds national pour la Société Numérique) programme.

Cloud Security: Do You Know Where Workloads are Running? Ensuring Boundary Control in OpenStack Cloud
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

Trove in the Real World - Adventures in Running Production Workloads on Upstream Code
As of the Juno release, Trove will contain all the features necessary
to deploy mission critical apps.  Unfortunately a number of the
necessary production features (for example HA, automatic fail over,
self-healing) are not available in a out of the box ready to use
manner.

In this code and demo heavy talk, we will walk the developer through
examples of how to build up the necessary supporting infrastructure to
make their Trove databases production worthy.  For example, how to set
up a cluster of Trove MySql instances to support high availability and
self healing completely using existing public Trove functionality
and standard tooling.

We will also discuss how the code samples could be modified to solve
specific problems unique to different environments.  (Note all the
code from this talk will be freely reusable and distributable).

Finally, the Trove PTL will provide a roadmap for how and when
features like HA, fail over, and self healing land in upstream Trove.

Sponsor Demo Theater - Siaras: OpenStack and Its Role in the WAN-Aware Multicloud

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.

Glance Artifacts: It's Not Just for Images Anymore


Various Openstack services often need to catalog different objects they use to

operate. Such objects may contain various data as well as metadata needed for

identification and description.

Images used by Nova to run the VMs are just the best known examples of such

objects. Other examples include Heat templates, Solum Plan Files, Mistral

Workbooks, Murano Application Packages etc.

"To catalog" means to have the following functionality:

  * To store the object reliably

  * To guarantee its immutabity once it is stored

  * To provide search capabilities to find the objects in catalog

  * To return the detailed info about the requested object

  * To allow fetching the object for usage by a Service

  * To control the access to the object: enforce usage and modification

    policies, sharing and publication scenarios etc

  * To manage the object lifecyle

Obviously, this set of functionality is common for different kinds of objects,

and is usually unrelated to the primary mission of respective projects using

these objects.

That is why it is suggested to have a dedicated service which will provide the

catalog functionality for other OpenStack services. As Glance already serves

as a catalog of Images for Nova, it is suggested to extend its mission so it

may serve as a catalog for other services as well.

The objects stored in the catalog are called *Artifacts*, and the catalog

itself *Artifact Repository*.

Various Openstack services often need to catalog different objects they use to operate. Such objects may contain various data as well as type-specific metadata needed for identification, description, and processing by the target service.

Images used by Nova to run the VMs are just the best known examples of such objects. Other examples include Heat templates, Solum Plan Files, Mistral Workbooks, and Murano Application Packages.

During the Juno development cycle, work has started to extend Glance to support these other "Artifacts" via a plug-in system. Heat templates are the first artifacts to be supported in Juno with several other plug-ins planned for the K development cycle.

This talk will cover the motivations and general architecture for artifact plug-ins as well as a general roadmap for further enhancement and development.

OpenStack Upgrade Without Down Time
In the openstack production environment, the service down time is sensitive to the customers. The system upgrade will be a very tough work for the operation team. 

In this session we will share the best practices and lesson learns about how to upgrade the openstack production environment, which was tested in the test environment with the same architecture and deployment of production environment. At the same time, we found some gaps and issues during the test which we want to address the attentions from the community to improve them.

The test was conducted for the upgrade from Havana to Icehouse. If time permit, another round of testing of upgrade from Icehouse to Juno will be performed before Paris Summit. If so we will share the test result and findings as well.

The topics to be covered in this session are:

1. The openstack production deployment architecture and design

2. The upgrade strategy and methodologies as well as the test methodologies.

3. The upgrade steps introductions

4. Best practicies during the upgrade

5. Lesson learns during the upgrade

6. Some known issues and gaps

The Road to Minimally Impacting Live Upgrades of the Rackspace Public Cloud
This is the story of Ada, an intrepid computer scientist, who has a need to create compute instances in the Rackspace Public Cloud. Alas, the public cloud is being upgraded at the moment and Ada's attempts to create compute instances are thwarted!









Upgrades of OpenStack can be difficult. Performing live upgrades on production clouds is even more arduous. Performing them live without the customer noticing is the hardest of all! In this talk, plucky Rackspace engineers Jesse Keating and Chris Blumentritt will recount the story of a Ada, our mythical user who tries desperately to make use of the Public Cloud during a control plane upgrade. They will provide narration, visualization, and technical insight into Ada's experience before and after making engineering and orchestration improvements to the control plane deployments during the Juno cycle. They will share the details of how they used Ansible playbooks, their Linux know-how, and  functionality available in Icehouse to provide less impactful live upgrades of OpenStack services in the Rackspace Public Cloud. 








Join us as we dive into the trails and tribulations and discover ways to prevent your "Adas" and other customers from ever noticing live upgrades of an OpenStack cloud so that you too can perform live upgrades that are 99% invisible.

How SAP SE Transformed a Productive Environment from Virtualization to Cloud Computing with OpenStack
Today SAP SE (formerly SAP AG) is running an OpenStack environment with several thousand virtual machines. The SAP project lead and B1 Systems will share the initial situation at SAP and what it took to integrate OpenStack with the existing environments. B1 Systems GmbH was involved in this process right from the start being responsible for design, implementation, operation and support of SAP's largest OpenStack landscape. Back in 2011 SAP SE had been using a virtualization platform which was partly automated. This environment did not scale fast enough to meet the increasing needs of SAP. In 2012 B1 Systems started the design of a cloud platform with the OpenStack Folsom release. The OpenStack environment was designed to replace the regular virtualization landscape. By using Puppet for configuration management, it was possible to provide a fully-automated and fast-growing environment to consolidate the needs of multiple customers and projects. 

SAP's current OpenStack landscape is based on the Icehouse release of OpenStack and encompasses nearly all available OpenStack components.

In July 2014 SAP SE officially committed to OpenStack. SAP's and B1 Systems' collaboration has furthered the collaboration with the OpenStack community with regards to feature requests and bug fixes. B1 Systems is part of the OpenStack Community since 2011 and has contributed to nearly all parts of the dynamic development. Right now B1 Systems is preparing the implementation of the upcoming Juno release at SAP.
