Upgrade Orchestrations are essential! We're both delighted and frustrated by OpenStack's pace of innovation because by the time we get the current release working then new hotness arrives. Last year, it was enough to just install OpenStack, but now we think it's required to have an upgrade plan. If you agree that migrations between versions are also very important then look no farther!
Representing the user committee, we will review the current status of the OpenStack user committee, its scope, the plans for next year along with the input from the user groups, industry sectors and foundation members. Discussions on the best approaches to identify user requirements, profile the user community and continue supporting the ongoing user activities around OpenStack will be welcome.
As the global demand for OpenStack expertise increases, employers are finding it difficult to recruit talent, which is slowing down the ability for organizations to adopt and implement OpenStack and supporting tools and services. Join Rackspace Cloud Evangelista Niki Acosta, as she shares her thoughts on the OpenStack talent gap and what the community must do-- short term and long term-- to accelerate adoption and usage of OpenStack-powered public and private clouds.
OpenStack supports many different compute, storage and networking environments for various deployment models. Over the past 15 years major investments went into building Fibre Channel storage infrastructures. If you are considering moving your dev/test or storage/backup or business applications to the cloud and extending your future FC private cloud environment to leverage OpenStack then plan on attending this discussion.
RedHat has created its own OpenStack distribution that is now in preview and still a bit rough around the edges, but promises to include what is needed to deploy & evaluate a truly complete Open Cloud environment. In addition, Red Hat wants there to be a widely used open-source community developed PaaS model for the cloud which includes being open to participation by a community of peers. To really create a open cloud environment and to make it useful, you need to complete the stack with an PaaS. Just getting a cloud environment up and running is no longer enough. The challenge that OpenStack faces is how to get people, applications and services working on OpenStack out of the box.
This session will cover the basics of: * What is a persona and why should I care? * How do I come up with persona(s) for my project? * What can I do with personas? This session will be useful to those interested in better understanding their target audiences, and specifically those seeking to grow a community around an open source project.
In this session, I will talk about some of the problems we face in deploying openstack by using openstack. I'll point at areas where the bare metal driver needs better integration with other services (eg. Quantum and Cinder), how we really need an inventory database (I'm looking at you, HealthNMon), how the Nova scheduler needs to be aware of hardware, and how Heat is taking over the world. I might even propose that it's possible to bootstrap yourself right out of your own boots!
Network virtualization has become a very hot topic over the last year. What began as an intriguing piece of technology is quickly becoming a fundamental requirement of scalable, next generation cloud infrastructure. Some of the top developers in this space will join an industry panel to discuss the present and future of network virtualization software. Come join us to learn where network virtualization is going!
The open source configuration management and automation framework Chef is used to deploy and manage many large public and private installations of OpenStack and supports a wide variety of deployment scenarios. This session will discuss the currently available resources and documentation, the evolution and layout of the project and the roadmap going forward.
Becoming an OpenStack contributor is easy, people are welcoming, and it's a rewarding experience. Upstream University ( http://upstream-university.org/ ) was funded by the Free Software Foundation France shortly after the April 2012 OpenStack summit to speed up the process, and enable even a skilled contributor to level up. It celebrates its first anniversary with a training session ( http://upstream-university.org/news/2013/02/11/upstream-university-openstack-summit/ ) dedicated to OpenStack in Portland, just before the summit.
Cloud Foundry is an open source platform as a service (PaaS), providing a choice of clouds, developer frameworks and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy and scale applications. Today's enterprises are looking to add PaaS capabilities to their private and public cloud infrastructure to decrease time to market for their applications and increase their developer productivity. This session will cover the natural synergy between the leading open PaaS solution, CloudFoundry, and the industry's leading open IaaS, OpenStack.
Dekel Tankel, Director of Product Marketing for Cloud Foundry, will present a broad introduction to Cloud Foundry, its core features and unique position in the PaaS landscape. Ferran Rodenas, Staff Engineer for Cloud Foundry, will discuss how the Cloud Foundry operational management tool, BOSH, interfaces with OpenStack to run PaaS on a wide range of infrastructure. If you are interested in PaaS, Cloud Foundry, or how the OpenStack ecosystem is enabling a new breed of cloud abstraction, then be sure to attend this session.
This session is a 201 level technical deep dive on the VMware/Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (NVP). NVP is a virtual networking platform powering many OpenStack production environments as the networking engine behind Quantum. In this session we’ll explore the distributed systems architecture of the NVP Controller Cluster, the core functionality and behavior of NVP’s primary system components, and the logical networking devices and security tools NVP 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 NVP deployments.
Contrail (http://contrail-project.eu) is a running FP7 EU research project. The main achievement of the project will be a tightly integrated software stack in open source including a comprehensive set of system, runtime and high level services providing standardized interfaces for supporting cooperation and resource sharing over Cloud federations. The main contribution of CONTRAIL is an integrated approach to virtualization, offering Infrastructure-as-a-Service, services for IaaS Cloud Federation, and Platform-as-a- Service. It aims at equalling current commercial Clouds, and surpassing them in a number of selected key domains to facilitate industrial up-take of Federated Cloud computing.
We would like to present the current status of the project as well as expected final results, focusing on Cloud Federation and security aspects.
