What do you do when your usual setup or turnkey solution isn’t suited for your workload?
Most of the documentation and user feedback that you can find about OpenStack is written for the use-case of running a public facing cloud serving several external customers. When you want to host a single tenant with a single application the problem is completely different, you don't want publicly exposed APIs. You want to ensure optimal resource allocation to maximize your application performance. You want to leverage the fact that you own the infrastructure layer to optimize your instance placement strategy, and to get the best latency and to avoid creating SPOFs using affinity (or anti affinity rules).
This talk will focus on what we learned during a two years journey; from getting OpenStack up and running reliably, to investigating performance bottlenecks, to maximizing the performance of our private cloud.
