Highly Available OpenStack: From Theory to Reality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We all know there are two sides to every story, and, in this session the theory and reality of highly available OpenStack clouds will be discussed.  We will cover concepts from the OpenStack HA-Guide that provide active/active and active/passive configuration guidelines (the “theoretical” configuration of OpenStack HA) and walk-through HA considerations that Deutsche Telekom had to implement, and design, from a practical production grade OpenStack deployment perspective (the reality).  We will also discuss the state (and implications) of a multiple availability zone and region setup.


Key Take-Aways:


  • Learn the tools and components you can leverage to make your cloud highly-available

  • Practical advice on implementation of HA OpenStack services

  • Identify resources available to help with the planning and design elements of your cloud HA strategy

  • Recommendations on selecting active/active or active/passive as a HA strategy
