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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

“Federation” Business Models for OpenStack Operators (Canonical)
Build locally, sell globally. National and regional telcos offering local cloud infrastructure have a data sovereignty advantage over the global players, but customers also want a global footprint, and the ability to place workloads in the right region for their audience. Can operators federate to take advantage of their respective investments? Mark Shuttleworth will lead a working discussion on cloud federation, and debate the merits of diverse strategies available to OpenStack operators investing in public infrastructure.

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.

Sponsor Demo Theater - Codership: Designing for Scale: Data Storage in OpenStack and Galera Cluster
We will teach you how to think about your data -- its size and shape, how frequently it is written or read, how aggressively it is cached, how the data naturally partitioned or grouped -- and how to structure your data storage foundation to most effectively group like data together. We will discuss traditional databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL, as well the synchronously replicated MySQL Galera Cluster database. The tail end of the talk will focus specifically on optimizing MySQL Galera Cluster performance for varying workloads. Attendees should come away from the session with a great understanding of data architecture for OpenStack as well as a good set of best practices for tuning database storage for their OpenStack deployments.

IBM and OpenStack: Collaborations Beyond the Code
As the largest open source project in the world, OpenStack is produced by a huge and diverse community of global contributors. 

The most high profile efforts come from the individuals and organizations that produce the code and package the releases, however there are many other ways to get involved.

In this sponsored session, we will highlight some of the key ways that IBM participates in the OpenStack community.

We'll start off by reviewing some of our major code contributions, then we will highlight our conference and summit content, local meetup leadership activity, social media activism, web content, and more.

After this presentation, you'll appreciate the full range of the activities that make an open source community strong, and learn how you can take part in the OpenStack community, as IBMers have.

Finally, you'll have a chance to provide your feedback to guide IBM with its community activities, and have a starting point to get involved yourself.

A World of Many (OpenStack) Clouds
Cloud’s today are islands.  Major service providers offer differing sets of API’s and services which may force customers to build vendor-specific cloud applications.

Is OpenStack the answer?  If so, is it time to envision a world of many OpenStack clouds? As a community, with OpenStack, can we cover the range of different use cases across service provider, enterprise, NFV, video, and mobility with carrier-grade scale, security, policy and resiliency?

This talk will explore this topic and describe how Cisco is working with leading service providers and enterprise customers to build an “Intercloud” based on OpenStack.
