Dynamic Policy for Access Control
Who can do what? In OpenStack, it is the Policy engine that controls these decisions. A secure deployment means moving beyond the default policy provided with the base distribution. But how do you write policy
rules that reflect your security decisions? This presentation, Adam Young, a core Keystone developer from the Red Hat Identity Management team, explain the access control policy mechanism from start to finish: How Keystone separate authentication from authorization, why the default policy file is so simplistic, how to build policies that reflect your
organization, and the capabilites and limitation of policy enforcement. We'll conclude with a view of the future of policy management in OpenStack.

What's Next in OpenStack: A Glimpse at the Roadmap
Whether you are a newbie to OpenStack looking at building your first cloud or an experienced operator with years of OpenStack success behind you, you've probably spent some time wondering what to expect from the OpenStack project over the next several releases.  Will it finally support that new capability you've been waiting for?  Should you plan for an upgrade in the next 6 months?

While the development community is always working and planning new features, its takes a lot of time on IRC to get a complete view across the different projects.  The OpenStack Product WG spent time this cycle working with the project teams and PTLs to understand their priorities for the next several OpenStack releases.  Where we have always had an understanding of what's to come in the next release, we're hoping to present a long-term view of the future landscape of OpenStack.  In this session, we'll present our findings across the different projects in an effort to give users a glimpse into the OpenStack roadmap.

Demystifying Logs in OpenStack Clouds
Openstack services create a big jungle of logs and metrics. These can provide a cloud operator tremendous insights and can help answer important questions, such as:

(1) What are the most interesting and actionable logs out of the many terabytes I see?

(2) Are there metrics whose changes correlate with certain logs?

(3) Are there certain errors that cascade from one service to another? How do I get to the root cause of issues?

(4) What are the typical parameters associated with common event pairs (average time between occurence, association rules, preceding and successive events)?

(5) Are there logs that are early warning signals for potential operational issues?

We shall also see which logs are indicative of anomalies and how visualizations of the anomalies can improve operational efficiencies

Liberty, Product Management and OpenStack Technology
The next OpenStack release is Liberty. So let’s talk about Freedom!  There has been a lot of talk in the last year about the need for “product management” in OpenStack - but skeptics say what that really means is more governance, and direct influence over the direction of this open source project with the goal of corporatizing OpenStack for business objectives.  To the developers actually working on OpenStack, what it means is influencing all of the product management at the various contributing vendors to get them to stop making unreasonable requests.

In reality, it doesn’t mean either of those things. And the only way to ensure OpenStack freedom is engagement and discussion. The people who want to influence OpenStack's direction will not be successful if they do not get involved. At the same time, the folks in OpenStack who are drowning under the weight of 100 conflicting requests are not going to be successful either without engaging and listening.

So what’s next for the OpenStack Developer? Come find out as Monty Taylor traverses to the next level of OpenStack development.  Take a look (through those cheap sunglasses) with Monty and see what happens next in a “we’re not dead yet” approach to OpenStack technology.

Unobtrusive Intrusion Detection in OpenStack
Administrators use Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) to alert when hackers attack their systems. These tools have been very effective in traditional networks. But running an IDS "as-a-service" in OpenStack is a relatively unexplored topic and interesting questions arise:


--How does one configure an IDS within a softwae defined network?

--Do popular open source systems like Snort or Bro scale when monitoring many virtual machiness?

--And what happens to the hypervisor's performance when an IDS is busy monitoring logs and traffic?

This talk will discuss current work that engages these questions. In this instance, the IDS is run on a separate machine than the hypervisor, so processing network traffic does not degrade performance. We will show the virtual network that accomplishes this and point to future directions. We will also discuss the benefits of running a host-based IDS such as OSSEC to detect hypervisor break-ins.

Kilo Libvirt/KVM Driver Update
KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution built into the Linux kernel. OpenStack Foundation user surveys consistently indicate that KVM is the most commonly used Hypervisor for OpenStack deployments, managed using the Libvirt driver for OpenStack Compute (Nova). Despite this sustained popularity development of the driver, and indeed the underlying Hypervisor itself, continues at a frantic pace.

This presentation will help you make sense of it all starting with an overview of the way Nova, Libvirt, and KVM interact before analysing progress made in Kilo on utilizing key Libvirt/KVM features in Nova including:

  • Instance vCPU pinning

  • Huge page backed instances

  • Enhanced NUMA topology awareness

  • Enhanced iSCSI interaction

...and more! The session will close with a discussion of how in addition to exposing existing Libvirt/KVM features emerging OpenStack use cases - such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and High Performance Computing (HPC) - are driving open innovation in the Libvirt, QEMU, and KVM projects themselves.

A day in the life of a Trove contributor

Trove is a young project in the OpenStack world that aims to provide tools for provision and manage multiple database instances as needed. Considering the complexity of the code architecture that makes this a reality, setting up the development environment and start contributing may be an overwhelming task.

 

But getting started as a contributor shouldn't be a hard process if you start with the right foot. There are some details that, if you could know them before hand, would make giving your first steps an easier task.

 

This presentation will be organized as follows:




  • Contributing to OpenStack. This part of the presentation is useful for not only Trove, but every other project in the stack. Some fine grained details may vary, but the base concepts won't. Here, we are going to give a brief explanation of on which tools are used by the OpenStack community and how you have to set them up to start contributing. We will also cover how the development process works, including how to find and fix a bug, how to make a new feature proposal, how to tests your changes before submitting and how the review process work.



  • Getting started with Trove. This part will cover Trove specifics. We are going to introduce Trove's architecture and basic functionality. Also, we will show what is needed to set up a Trove deployment.






By the end of the workshop, you will have all the tools to get involved as a contributor with an OpenStack project and, if you enjoyed learning about how the database provisioner service works, you will be more than welcome to join us in Trove!

Maintaining and Operating Swift at Public Cloud Scale




In this session we will explain how we manage and operate the Object Storage service in HP’s Public Cloud. We do this at large scale involving 1000s of servers and two geographical regions. The management of the system is located on different continents with only a small local presence within each data center to handle break-fix activities. 

Swift is very robust and incorporates numerous high availability and resiliency features. In fact, it is almost too good. A Swift system is capable of operating even when many drives, servers or networks are down. While the system may appear to operate normally, in fact your users will suffer from erratic performance. Worse yet, your data resiliency and availability is being compromised. 

We will review in detail how we monitor the system. We use a mixture of Swift’s own monitoring capabilities complemented with our own tooling.  In addition to obvious things such as drive status, we will discuss warning signs that Swift itself reports. Our experience with the system has shown that small warning signs are often an indication of impending problems. We use Icinga for the majority of our monitoring. However, this session will be useful to any monitoring system. We will explain how to correct and resolve common issues. Tips for upgrading software so you can avoid downtime will also be covered.

Enabling real-world interoperable hybrid cloud use cases using OpenStack's federated identity capabilities
As federation for hybrid cloud continues to come to the forefront, we plan on discussing how IBM and it's offerings plan to support hybrid scenarios and how to take advantage of Keystone's fundamental work in the area. We will begin the presentation by defining hybrid cloud and common scenarios. We will demonstrate how IBM Cloud Manager with OpenStack (ICM) can be used to interoperate with another OpenStack deployment (ICM or SoftLayer), to deliver a hybrid cloud environment using the Keystone-to-Keystone federation that was available in the Juno release of OpenStack. We will also discuss the key differences between a client managed ICM as opposed to a vendor managed ICM.
We intend to have a demo that showcases the Keystone-to-Keystone feature in action. At a minimum, we would have an application that shows a user from one cloud can be trusted to access resources (spin up a VM) on another cloud. This will be shown either using a python program, the CLI, or (if functioning) the Horizon web interface.

Building Managed Private Cloud for Enterprises with OpenStack and MidoNet
Network virtualization, especially the overlay network technology, is gaining momentum and has been widely accepted in IaaS cloud deployments. But is it a viable option for enterprise private clouds, given that each enterprise has its own unique requirements?

 

In 2013, KVH began looking to broaden its market by offering more open cloud solutions besides VMware cloud to its customer base.  KVH quickly settled on OpenStack as the foundation for a new type of managed private data center, but also wanted to create an environment where customers could easily place application workloads in any of its data centers. Today, using OpenStack and MidoNet, KVH offers managed a private cloud service for enterprises, all while meeting a wide range of their specific requirements and minimizing operation complexity.   

 

In this session, we will look at customer case studies as well as discuss our experience in building private cloud services for the enterprise. We’ll discuss how we met specific requirements including: securing redundancy, building monitoring and reporting systems, and keeping stable operations and sustainable maintenance.

Using TPMs for the benefit of the entire cloud
Many cloud deployments include hardware with a Trusted Platform Module (or TPM), but in most cases this is entirely unused. Support for using the TPM to provide remote attestation has been merged into OpenStack in the form of Trusted Compute Pools, allowing admins to configure clouds to detect systems that have booted untrusted code and block guests from being scheduled on them.

But, while important, protecting against the initial booting of untrusted code isn't the only thing TPMs can be used for - or, perhaps, not even the most interesting. Clouds need a good source of random numbers. Clouds need to be able to store secrets securely. And clouds need to provide guarantees that having someone wander off with one disk from a RAID array isn't obtaining sensitive customer data in the process.

This presentation will cover mechanisms for using a TPM to provide additional security for the whole cloud. It will describe integration of TPMs with disk encryption, allowing for improved security of user data. It will explain integration of TPMs with Barbican, allowing for Hardware Security Module-like functionality without additional hardware cost. And it will discuss how TPMs can be used as either the primary source of entropy for clouds or as a mechanism for reducing the impact of a trusted but backdoored random number generator.

Introduction of a new Nova REST API: Why we need to use Nova v2.1 API
OpenStack projects provide their services via REST APIs.
CLI (commands: nova, keystone, etc) and GUI like Horizon also operate
OpenStack services via REST APIs. In addition, cloud service providers
become to provide REST APIs to external world, and cloud users become
to use these APIs directly on their own applications to use the best
cloud service at the time. So the world is moving to interoperability.

One of OpenStack core projects Nova also provide many services via its
REST APIs. However, current Nova API (v2) contains problems like lack
of input validation, inconsistent interfaces and difficult to add a new
API implementation, etc.
To solve these problems, we have developed a new REST API called "v2.1"
in Juno and Kilo development cycles. By using v2.1 API in many cloud
services, we will be able to get safer services and interoperability will
become easier.

In this session, you will know the outline of Nova v2.1 API, its merits and
how to use v2.1 API for users and cloud service providers. In addition,
we are developing new features based on v2.1 API, so you will know next
features also. I hope this session helps you deploy/use better OpenStack
environments.

Optimizing Contributions with Globally Distributed Teams
With over 850 organizations and thousands of individuals from over 140 countries around the globe, the OpenStack community is wildly diverse and global.  If you are going to contribute to the OpenStack Project, weither it is code or use cases,you are going to be working on teams.

Many teams will be virtual; that is the members of the team will be scattered around the world and come from many companies and cultures, while other teams will be constituted of long-term work colleagues who have worked comfortably together for years.  More often, OpenStack teams are closer to the former, than the later. Your teammates are on different schedules and have different agendas.  You have no loyalty and no bond, yet you have to trust your teammates will come together and add to the OpenStack project. 

For contributors, that often translates to mean that you are working on a project or team that has folks from many time zones and organizations.  This can often lead to misaligned priorities, limited meeting times and frustrations with the amount and pace of work that needs to be done. Given all the difficulties, it is amazing how often the OpenStack Project teams actually work and work well.

Join this workshop panel to learn tips and tricks on how to maximize your effectiveness and efficiency when working on large Open Source projects such as OpenStack.

·          Tricks and tools to avoid communications breakdowns

Intent and SDN Driven Service Chain: What, Why, and How
Service Chaining refers to an ordered sequence of service functions that a specific flow must go through. In current Data Center, the deployment of service chain for a tenant's flow is through static, complex, and rigid configurations since they are tightly coupled with network topology and physical resources.  The introduction of new services into a network usually requires the reconfiguration of most (if not all) network elements. 

The reconfiguration is complex, time-consuming, and error-prone, requiring careful planning of topology changes and network outages, and incurring high OPEX on the user side. 

Things become unmanageble when services are deployed in the cloud:

• Diferent tenants' flows may require different chains of services. Even within one tenant network, different application flows may require different chains of services. This leads to explosion of the number of chains that need to be manually managed

• The administrator may need to change the chain of services in real time based on service treatment result or network status feedback. It is impossible to meet th real-time requirement through manual configurations on all the devices

A simple intent based user interface and a SDN based service chaining framework is needed to solve these challenges for operators and service providers.  

In this presentation, we will show how the intent driven and SDN based service chaining framework can greatly simplfies the user's life and reduces the OPEX as well as how it enables agile deployment of services.

We will also show how this service chaining framework can interoperate with both legacy and new service appliances, which allows for the building of a large ecosystem aross different domains of the network.  

Our solution framework represents an evolution from the static setup of a service path through manual configurations on physical devices to dynamic setup of service paths through simple user intent specification and SDN auto-programming on both physical and virtual nodes.

Service Oriented Deployments at Scale in an OpenStack Public Cloud
For the last 4 cycles, Rackspace has shared in true transparent style the experience gained while learning to scale OpenStack. From poorly optimized SQL queries that threatened to take down entire data centers in Grizzle to having to rewrite the deploy orchestration not once, not twice, but three times to deal with an ever-growing number of nodes, Rackspace engineers working on creating the Build Release Deploy Systems have truly seen it all. Rackspace invites the OpenStack community to hear the story of deployments at scale during the Kilo cycle and share in the latest challenges, triumphs, and lessons learned from regularly upgrading the control plane of the largest production OpenStack public cloud. 

 

While Juno was a challenge of deployments at scale (approximately 45,000   nodes across 6 data centers), Kilo has introduced new complexity in the   form of a service oriented deployment process. In this talk, Jason   Meridth, Rainya Mosher, and Philip Schwartz -- all materially involved   in the build release and deploy systems used by the public cloud --  will  take you deep into the transition from a monolithic packaging for  all OpenStack projects to separate packages and orchestration for  Neutron, Glance, Nova, and Ironic. We will also discuss how Rackspace  consumes  upstream OpenStack from master, upgrading the control plane  many times  during any single OpenStack cycle. Through this practice, we  find  challenging issues for the Operator Community and work with  developers and operators alike to resolve them and strengthen OpenStack  as a whole.

 

Talk Outline 

 

* Config Management: How did we move from Puppet manifests to ansible without gouging  our eyes out?

* Packaging: How did we go about packaging each project separately while still shipping releases to production? 

* Orchestration: How do we deploy to 5,000+ nodes in a single data  center  in about 45 minutes (with 7 minutes or less of customer impact)  and how do we plan to go even faster?

* Ownership: How did we empower development teams to own their product from code to production?

* Complexity: How are we managing the increase in complexity introduced by multi-service deployments? 

* Tooling: How are we using Docker, Ansible, and Jenkins to make all this possible?

 

Talk Takeaways

    

* Viable ways to manage configurations, orchestration, and packaging of  separate services across a large-scale cloud installation

* Best practices to introduce release engineering and system reliability engineering into your operational environment

* The tools being used inside Rackspace Engineering to survive at scale in the constant change of OpenStack

Continuously Design your Application Workload for Continuous Deployment with OpenStack Heat
Whether your applications are cloud-native, cloud-ready, or just evolving towards cloud-based deployment, you can capture the complete stack as an OpenStack Heat template. In this session, we’ll present a web-based editing experience that enables you to capture each aspect of your architecture in a ready-to-deploy and easy-to-update design based on HOT. We'll show you those Heat templates in either a rich diagram editor or a simple but powerful text editor -- all in your web browser! Advanced features like autoscaling, load balancing, deployment ordering, and object storage will all be captured as part of your application design — right along side the critical software that defines the business behavior of your workload. And it’s not just about the first time you deploy, it’s about deploying every time thereafter. We’ll show you how you can manage your software deployment pipeline as part of your Heat templates. Maybe you’re not sure what cloud to deploy to? Interested in OpenStack, but already have investments in other clouds? We’ll also demonstrate how we’ve extended the Heat language to design cloud-portable templates. So come on this journey with us, where we’ll leverage the cloud to help you build better software for your end users.

OpenStack in HPC Operations: A Campus Perspective
Demand for scalable compute capacity is growing across all areas of research. Applications and the skills to maintain them vary considerably between science teams. Fabrics that can adapt to application requirements simplify deployment scenarios. Service replication offers new avenues to grow capacity in scientific work flows.

Traditional campus high performance computing (HPC) systems have had limited capabilities for adapting cluster environments to application requirements. Adding OpenStack to an HPC architecture provides user access to cloud instances they can easily tune to mirror application requirements. Users can replicate app-specific instances giving them an easy path to scale work flows on larger data sets. Additionally, bare metal provisioning can simplify infrastructure management for HPC operators. Hardware fabrics for production HPC, custom applications, and development environments can be allocated through a common framework, providing migration paths from virtual to physical servers.

The research computing group at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is rebuilding their HPC platform to incorporate OpenStack as a core service. An initial experimental OpenStack fabric demonstrated the utility of rapid service deployment and the flexibility to explore alternative implementations. Aligning our campus HPC infrastructure with public cloud models also promises new opportunities to scale capacity on demand and plan growth. This session will share experiences gained deploying our experimental cloud, designs for the integrated fabric, and challenges faced introducing cloud services into traditional operations.

Secure, Ephemeral PKI with the Anchor Project
Ephemeral PKI, first introduced during a highly successful talk presented last year in Paris, is a novel solution to the difficult problem of TLS certificate management at scale. With the pain caused by highly publicised TLS security flaws such as Heart bleed and Poodle still fresh in the minds of many, and with the growing uptake of TLS to secure more and more cloud infrastructure this challenging problem has never been more relevant. 

Anchor is the open source project evolved from HP's own internal implementation of a stateless ephemeral CA. Designed to operate with high availability and at the scale of large cloud deployments, it neatly sidesteps the certificate revocation issues that plague most OpenStack deployments. 

This presentation will consist of three parts, first we will examine the core concepts of ephemeral PKI and its advantages over traditional approaches to certificate management. Secondly we'll present the Anchor project itself, discussing it's technical design and implementation, as well a roadmap for its future development. Finally, to cement the usefulness of this approach, we will present a dogfooding section that details how Anchor and ephemeral PKI are deployed today within HP's Helion cloud products.

The life of an OpenStack contributor in animated GIFs


 

For the last six month we have been running the website OpenstackReactions that has becoming hugely popular within the OpenStack community.

 

The idea of the website is to get a so called ‘reaction’ about the day to day life of the OpenStack users and developers.

 

In this session we are going to just do that, showing you the day to day of an OpenStack developer and an OpenStack operator in animated gifs  which may speaks you better than complicated diagrams and busy slides.

 

For the developer we are going to get from the setup of his OpenStack environment before starting contributing, discussing new features to implement and reviews other people patches.

 

For the OpenStack operator we will get to the part of what it actually take to get that patch to be automated and tested before deployed in production.

 

We hope that this talk will be as much as an introduction to a newcomer to OpenStack and describe in a fun way the life of an existing OpenStack user and developer.

Enhancing OpenStack Projects with Advanced SLA and Scheduling
Expressing (implicitly or explicitly) a rich set of computational requirements when starting an instance is a key factor to the success of enterprise-grade deployments that require high-profile resources. Making sure such Service Level Agreements for Quality of Service requirements can be met either now or in the future is critical to this success.


In this talk, we will cover the existing possibilities that OpenStack uses to specify a specific set of computational resources. We will examine how to influence the placement decision by going under the hood of the existing Nova scheduler. We will discuss some issues with the current design and present current efforts for splitting the Nova scheduler into a separate project called Gantt. Finally, we will address how other OpenStack projects, like Cinder and Neutron, can take advantage of a common scheduler.

OpenStack Horizon deep dive and customization
Horizon is the end user facing self-service portal of OpenStack. It is built on top of the Django web framework.

OpenStack Dashoard is intended to provide a graphical user interface for all integrated OpenStack components.

In order to facilitate extensions more easily, a plug-in mechanism was added.

From a deployers perspective, it's important to have both: the ability to add or change functions, colors, logos, and to have a maintained basis as well.

This talk will dive deep into OpenStack Dashboard. After a general overview, as example, changes to made for Red Hats look and feel will be shown. This is significantly different from upstreams user experience. This includes logos, colors, and even a different orientation for the menu.

Finally, one can add or hide complete panels. A finer grained control on certain actions is also possible, such as forbidding end users to upload images to boot from.

During modification, deployers most likely will see errors. Since debugging server issues is still a bit hard, this will be demonstrated.

More than Read, Write and Delete: Looking at Cool Features in Swift
In this session, we’ll talk about stuff that's going to make developing swift easy by offloading the hard problems of storage. OpenStack Swift makes your application better. We can find dozens of storage systems that can do read write and delete but the fact that you can use swift for these advanced features means that you're able to focus on making your app awesome rather than worrying about the hard problems in storage.  

 

We’ll cover how application developers can take advantage of some of the more advanced features in Swift, including... TempURL, StaticWeb, FormPost, and Static or Dynamic Large Objects among others.

OpenStack + VMware: Enabling the Evolution of Enterprise Applications at Adobe
Adobe is the global leader in digital marketing and digital media solutions. Adobe has large development and quality engineering teams that have been demanding agile, developer friendly APIs to consume infrastructure.

When Adobe's Compute Platform Team began designing their next-generation private cloud stack, the choice of cloud management layer came rather easily.

This new private cloud stack was developed from the ground up taking into account standardization, automation and self-service as well as the ability to scale on network, compute and storage independently from each other. This lofty goal could not be reached just using one technology, but instead required a union of several technologies, many of which have roots in the Openstack world.

A requirement set out by the business not just to build a cloud to support "platform 3.0" applications, but also to elegantly support "platform 2.0/2.5" applications -- applications that require high levels of infrastructure resiliency. For this reason, the team selected VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO). This allows the team to support applications of varying maturity, as well as to plan for the future when such infrastructure resiliancy will no longer be required.

In this session we will discuss all of the different technologies used to build our new private cloud stack.

Specifically, we'll cover networking with NSX and Cumulus Linux, vSphere for compute, vSAN for storage and finally OpenStack as the layer that provides a unified way of consuming these resources in a programmatic manner.We will deep dive into the benefits of each of these technologies and the limits that we have found as we roll this out at scale.

Specific topics include:

* Large scale, geographically distributed compute

* Application diversity

* Why we chose to develop a new platform (limitations of the old)

* The power of Openstack -- our perspective

* VMware - Why bother keeping it around?

* Focus on networking

* IaaS with VIO

* Areas for future development (e.g. standing up entire applications with Heat)

SDN without SDN at daumkakao
With more than 140 million users, KakaoTalk is the most popular mobile messaging platform in South Korea. The team at daumkakao has been using OpenStack with the intention for tranforming the current legacy infrastructure into scale out based cloud to build and offer new services for its users. In this session, we'd like to share our experiences with the OpenStack community, specifically in regards to meeting our needs for networking with Neutron.

OpenStack Neutron offers a lot of methods to implement networking for VMs and containers. For production operations, VM migration can be a common activity to manage resources and improve uptime. It's not hard using shared storage like Ceph, but network settings, such as IP addresses need to be preserved. With a shared storage environment, an image can be attached anywhere inside of a data center, but a service IP for a virtual machine is different story. And when you don't use the floating IPs, keeping the same IP across a data center-wide set of VLANs is hard job.

To maintain a virtual machine's IP settings and balance IPs between VLANS, we tried several options including overlay, SDN, and NFV technologies. In the end we came to use a route-only network for our virtual machine networks, leveraging technology like Quagga for RIP, OSPF BGP integrated with Neutron.

Storage security in a critical enterprise OpenStack environment
Security is essential for critical enterprise OpenStack installations like telco NFV clouds. This includes the often-ignored issue of security for storage of images, objects, and shared file systems (e.g., user data or mission critical configurations like firewall rules). This talk will provide insight into requirements for a secure setup and potential issues, pitfalls, and attack vectors against storage technologies used with an cloud based on OpenStack.

 

The Ceph distributed storage system has become very popular in OpenStack deployments, and is currently the most commonly deployed solution for block storage. It provides an object store, block devices, and a shared file system. However, distributed systems in particular make it much more complex to achieve robust security compared e.g. to local storage on compute nodes.

 

By using Ceph as an example, this talk will present what Deutsche Telekom and Red Hat/Inktank, together with the community, are working on to build a security critical cloud with OpenStack and Ceph.

 

This talk will cover:


  • the security requirements for telco clouds

  • the security issues associated with multi-tenant clouds with a range of security zones sharing a single storage system

  • how to secure the storage setup in an OpenStack cloud

  • the current state of security in Ceph

  • current Ceph development efforts that are underway

  • the security roadmap for Ceph

The Big Tent - a look at the new OpenStack projects governance
OpenStack was previously defined by one thing: “the integrated release”. This single term ended up meaning different things for everyone. It both became too large and too small an artifact to represent what the community does. It was too big for many people to deploy, and too small to fit the features that many people wanted. It was time for a change.


In this talk, we will look at what the proposed changes are, and where we currently stand in implementing them. We’ll explore what the changes mean for the development, testing, and releasing of OpenStack. We’ll explain why we think this will both give us a more solid base infrastructure layer, and allow the creation of numerous add ons that let consumers grow over time. And we’ll leave plenty of time for burning questions.

Isn't it Ironic? The Bare Metal Cloud
When you think of the cloud, do you think of the principles by which 
cloud computing has enabled a rapid change in application development 
-- principles like elasticity and self-service?

Or do you think that clouds are too slow for your app -- because they 
have shared resources, expose you to noisy neighbors, or run in a 
virtual machine?

These principles have fueled the dev/ops movement, and are now fueling 
the infrastructure-as-code movement which has grown from that. Such 
flexibility was widely unavailable just 10 years ago because it is 
predicated on easy access to elastic, self-service, 
programatically-controllable infrastructure. In other words, The 
Cloud.

However, virtualization is not the only way to provide this.

I’d like to show you an open source cloud platform that can deliver 
physical machines through the same API as virtual machines. You get 
your very own real, physical, bare metal server in just a few minutes! 
It even comes with a kitten [*].

I will cover the following topics: 
* brief intro (2 min) 
* network and service requirements for using Ironic (3 min) 
* some choices you'll need to make (5 min) 
* operator vs user interactions with a bare metal cloud (5 min) 
* control flow for starting a physical server in the cloud (5 min) 
* further operations (10 min) 
* automating the management (5 min) 
* questions

[*] Actually, there's no kitten, but there are plenty of grumpy cats 
in the cloud.

Taming Neutron with Collaborative Documentation
Everyone knows that networking presents one of the biggest challenges in planning, deploying, and operating an OpenStack cloud, and the lack of sufficient practical documentation contributes significantly to the problem.

 

During the last development cycle, a group of people representing a wide range of skills, expertise, and perspectives including core developers, operators, trainers, and end users, joined forces to transform networking into a safer, happier place for everyone.

 

The new collaborative Networking Guide includes a handful of practical deployment scenarios covering basic architectures with Open vSwitch and Linux Bridge and leading-edge DVR and L3 HA architectures, but to get there we had to throw out the rule book and start from scratch when it came to how we write OpenStack documentation.

 

In this panel discussion, the team building the Networking Guide will discuss:

 

- Defining what needs to be understood about a topic

- Engaging the community in a collaborative effort

- Convincing subject matter experts to contribute their expertise

- Combining skill sets to achieve a large and complicated goal

 

Attendees will come away from this session with a better understanding of the process of documentation in the community setting (and maybe even a better understanding of Neutron).

Image Management in Private Cloud
In private cloud responsibilities are shared between cloud operator and cloud customers. There is a desire in the organization to control and secure images in centralized manner and at the same time custom images are needed for agility and efficient operations. Maintaining custom images is big overhead for developers and operators and it’s also big security risk. When new vulnerabilities are discovered - all systems and images need to be scanned and patched. 

 

In this talk, we want to share how Symantec addresses these governance challenges, including following key topics:



  • Different types of images with clear ownership and responsibilities



  • Role-based access control



  • Vulnerability and patch management



  • Managing images as code with reviews and continuous integration



  • Capacity management for images and snapshots



  • Configuration management

How to make Ironic bare-metal provisioning more secure and reliable?
Today Ironic PXE boot has several security and reliability issues.  PXE boot lacks any form of security. There is no mechanism to establish mutual trust between a PXE client and a server or secure the TFTP protocols.  Moreover, PXE boot uses DHCP broadcast which causes security and scalability concerns from some cloud deployers.  TFTP also encounters packet loss and timeout issues in a larger scale deployment environment. 

  IronMan is an Ironic plug-in driver that uses UEFI secure boot, virtual media PXE-less deployment, and secure disk erase to enhance security and reliability for Ironic bare-metal provisioning.   UEFI secure boot secures the boot process by only loading each piece of boot software including boot loader, firmware drivers and kernel with the correct digital signatures.  Virtual media PXE-less deploy driver addresses PXE boot security and reliability issues by sending Ironic management data and Keystone authentication token in a reliable encrypted management channel.  Secure disk erase and firmware settings can be used as part of the node cleaning process to prepare a node for a clean start of deployment or re-deployment.

 

  In this session, we will give an overview of these security features and also provide a demo of secure boot with virtual media PXE-less bare-metal provisioning.  You will learn how to use these features to enhance security and reliability for Ironic bare-metal deployment.

Tales From the Gate: How Debugging the Gate Helps Your Enterprise
 

OpenStack is incredibly complex with tons of moving parts. When we run tests against a running OpenStack in the gate sometimes things fail for reasons unrelated to the proposed patch. These failures, sometimes refered to developers as "flaky failures", are normally an exposure of interesting timing problems in OpenStack and they can often be very tricky to debug. However, we've found that almost all of these issues and the difficulty we have in debugging them also applies to real deployments.

 

This talk will go over the mechanics of debugging gate failures. Including topics like: common failure patterns to look for, how to trace through (and improve) OpenStack logs, and writing elastic-recheck fingerprints.

 

As part of the discussion comparisons will be drawn to show how similar the process of debugging gate failures is to production OpenStack issues. To reinforce that anything we see in the gate most likely is being dealt with by users of OpenStack outside of the developer community.

Panel: The Future of Neutron Plugin and Driver Innovation
During the Kilo development cycle, the Neutron team made it a priority to focus on how the project itself could continue at a high velocity and continue to enable innovation and that same velocity for plugin and driver owners. The end result of this was the concept of "Plugin Decomposition." This process entails the migration of plugin and driver backend logic out of the Neutron tree and into separate repositories owned entirally by the plugin and driver owners. This is a multi-release effort, with the kickoff happening during Kilo development.

This panel will take an in depth look at the recent changes to OpenStack Neutron around plugin decomposition. We'll have experts on hand from the Neutron side who designed this and have been helping to shepard people through the process. And we'll have plugin and driver maintainers who have gone through the process and will share their experiences.

The goal of plugin decomposition is to enable faster velocity for plugin and driver owners, and to increase that same velocity in the Neutron project itself. We'll cover these aspects of plugin decomposition. We'll also discuss the aspects of how this has affected the plugin and driver community.

Join us as we discuss this and come with questions you may have about the process itself, the future of plugins and drivers in Neutron, and innovation in the plugin and driver community.

Deploying OpenShift by Red Hat on Dell’s OpenStack Cloud Reference Architecture
OpenShift 3, the open source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), brings Docker containerization and Kubernetes orchestration into an easy-to-use, multi-language application deployment and auto-scalability environment. Managing large clusters based on virtualized infrastructure can get tricky, especially with the added complexity of networking in an environment with 2 layers of multi-tenancy: the VMs and the containers. At Dell, we are working with Red Hat to integrate OpenShift into our validated OpenStack reference architecture—this requires the integration of the OpenStack Neutron networking API to meet OpenShift's needs. In this presentation, we'll be reviewing the configuration details and integration strategies we used and demonstrate the basic scale-up, scale-down, and multi-tenancy features of OpenShift on Dell’s OpenStack reference architecture.

From Archive to Insight: Debunking Myths of Analytics on Object Stores
Many people believe running analytics on a Swift object store has to be a painful experience.  Either the analysis can be run directly on the Swift cluster using specialized architectures, which never match native performance, or the data must be migrated out into a separate analytics cluster, delaying time to insight.

This talk presents an architecture for running an analytics tool such as Hadoop natively on a Swift object store without performance loss nor requiring any data movement.  Through use of the SwiftOnFile open-source project, we will go through an evaluation of running Hadoop directly against the underlying objects, allowing users to transform archive data to useful insights more quickly.

OpenStack Security CI/CD Way
 

As OpenStack becomes popular, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) of OpenStack is gaining attention. Customers need the ability to deploy multiple times every day to meet their business needs. This is a huge challenge to application security.   Traditional web application security testing and API security testing are manual processes aided by various tools. The tests are time consuming and lack consistence. It is almost impossible to embed these types of security testing into CI/CD process. 

 

In Rackspace, security engineering team is working with quality engineers and developers to integrate security testing into CI/CD process. Security engineering team uses the same framework/tool that quality engineer use to ease integration. Currently we are focusing on API security testing automation and web application security testing. We are working on a couple of approaches to integrate security-testing cases with QE testing framework. The security test cases cover necessary security checks including common security vulnerability checks and some product specific checks. These security test cases can be run by anyone from the team. They can also be invoked as Jenkins jobs as part of integration test. The failed security test cases indicate some types of security defects and need to be remediated. 

 

The security testing automation improves the consistency, repeatability and auditability of our security testing process. Security testing within CI/CD process can detect security defect in early stage and reduce remediation costs.

Being a shepherd in the clouds.


Problem:

Any Openstack operator running a large cloud will eventually find a need to move tenants between zones quickly for:

  • Newly added capacity in a new zone

  • OpenStack version upgrade

  • Cross datacenter migration / cloning

Naïve solution:
A simple way to migrate tenants across zones without Flyway is to use Nova and Glance to create a snapshot, download and upload it to the other zone and nova-boot the new VM instance. The downside to this is that glance needs to store and move a lot of redundant data as this the VM's base image that is logically copied over for every snapshot taken. Plus destination not an exact copy of the source, compute and storage wise.

 

Our Solution:

At EBay/PayPal we have developed Flyway, a tool which enables seamless migration of a tenant from one datacenter to another.




  • Tenant view - Can move the array of tenant specific resources (users, roles, key pairs, quotas etc).

  • VM, cinder instances, volume data and images from source to target.

  • Hypervisors connects to Celery task queue and a message bus enables the transport of VM’s sparse files directly from their source to target hypervisors efficiently. Thus avoiding the redundant data migration as explained above.

To monitor and visualize the progress of Flyway as it runs, we also developed the Flyview utility.  This tool gives a bird’s eye view of a zone and helps us see patterns of usage and quickly identify unusual tenants.  It generates SVG images as well as animated GIFs of the zones over their lifetime providing a very insightful visualization.

Stabilizing the Jenga Tower: Scaling out Ceilometer
Efficiently metering and monitoring a private cloud is one of the major concerns Cloud administrators deal with on a day to day basis. OpenStack’s Ceilometer project was created to attempt to solve this aspect of cloud management but there are lot of misconceptions on how to effectively deploy and integrate it into one’s OpenStack cloud. Ceilometer has been maturing rapidly for the past few releases in OpenStack to address various aspects including scalability and performance and if deployed appropriately, is capable of addressing the needs of operators.

 

This talk aims to outline some facts and myths about Ceilometer, highlight key improvements made to the project and provide awareness on best practices to integrate it into your Cloud deployment and scale Ceilometer to accommodate your monitoring requirements.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Common complaints by Cloud admins - Facts and Myths

  • Best practices on how to integrate and extend Ceilometer with your Private Cloud

  • Deployment scenarios/Use cases in Production

  • Do's and Dont's / Gotchas

  • Q&A – Tell us what your pain points are and how we can help?

OpenStack, Docker, and Cloud Foundry - How does the leading open source triumvirate come together?
OpenStack, Docker, and Cloud Foundry are the three most popular open source projects according to a recent cloud software survey. Docker has taken the cloud world by storm as a revolutionary way to not only run isolated application containers, but also to package them. But how does Docker fit into the paradigm of IaaS and PaaS? More specifically, how does it integrate with OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, the world's most popular infrastructure and platform service implementations?   

In this talk we will: 
1. Talk about the changes happening in the Cloud Foundry and OpenStack code bases to better integrate with Docker, and each other. 
2. Discuss the rewrite of the Cloud Foundry application runtime (Diego) to support applications deployed in Docker containers. 
3. Show how we can leverage BOSH to deploy this converged platform on OpenStack. 
4. Describe the service broker architecture used to plug a Docker container service into Cloud Foundry, and how we implemented it for the IBM PaaS offering, IBM Bluemix. 
5. Dive deep into how we use another OpenStack service, Swift object storage, in our Cloud Foundry-based PaaS platform as well. 
6. Give recommendations on ideal architectures for deploying Dockerized applications on OpenStack and Cloud Foundry. 

Come join us at this session to understand how the three leading open source cloud technologies are evolving to work together to support next generation workloads!

From One to Many - Growing your Swift Deployment to Multi-Region, Multi-Policy, Multi-Petabyte
Your initial roll-out of object storage is a huge success and its time to extend your cluster to meet the growing global storage demands. Your customers have differing storage requirements that you need to meet. What items do you need to take into consideration when expanding to a large global reach storage cluster? Once deployed, how can you be assured that it is running properly in a global context?

 

At Symantec, we are addressing many of these issues to meet our growing storage demands. We would like to share our insight on:

 


  • Architectural Considerations



  • Multiple Regions



  • Multiple Storage Policies



  • Network Virtualization



  • Dynamic Scaling



  • Single Pane Visibility



  • Hardware Considerations

Taking Risks: How Experimentation Leads to Breakthroughs
More organizations are embracing the power of experimentation, using a reliable set of tools and proven processes to foster collaboration and produce results. Cloud computing is a key driver, lowering the time-to-results of such experiments, and rewarding companies who embrace the "fail fast" mentality of start ups. Real breakthroughs don't appear on traditional long term roadmaps - they come from taking risks and iterating.

OpenStack is, in effect, an organization which is embracing this very same model. Rather than a single company, our development process relies on "distributed R&D" with a roadmap that is increasingly being defined by experimenting with new technologies like containers. Throughout this keynote, Mark will cover several emerging OpenStack projects under active development as they seeking to find a market fit, rapidly iterating based on user feedback.

Evil Superuser's HOWTO: Launching instances to do your bidding.
You click 'run' on the OpenStack dashboard, or launch a new instance via the api.  Some provisioning magic happens and soon you've got a server created especially for you.  Did you ever wonder what magic happens to a standard image on boot?  Have you wanted to launch instances and have them into your infrastructure with no manual interaction?


Cloud-init is software that runs in most linux instances.  It can take your input and do your bidding.  Learn what things cloud-init magically does for you and how you can make it do more.

 

Also, take advantage of the after-talk to pester cloud-init developers on what is missing or throw rotten fruits in their direction.

APIs Matter
When users interact with OpenStack components, they do so via the RESTful HTTP APIs. As such, these APIs often provide the first impression that the OpenStack project gives to the developer and user community. If we're honest, that first impression can sometimes be a bit, well, ugly. Resource naming, URI structure, documentation, discovery, and request/response payloads for our HTTP APIs are often inconsistent, sometimes too complex, and at times very unfriendly to our users.

In the past release cycle, a working group of community members from across the OpenStack projects has come together to focus on the public face of OpenStack: these HTTP APIs. In this session, we will discuss the goals of the API working group, the guidance that has been delivered in the last release cycle, as well as the pain points and ongoing debates. We show examples of current inconsistencies in our APIs, compare our APIs to other cloud management platform APIs, and demonstrate why our HTTP APIs are so important to the success of the OpenStack project.

In the course of the talk, we'll also demonstrate a new testing framework developed by Chris Dent called "Gabbi" that aims to clarify both how the OpenStack contributors *think about* APIs as well as how we validate that our APIs are consistent, user friendly, and well structured.

The Neutron team was busy during the Kilo cycle adding many enhancements to the the latest release.  In this session, we’ll dive into the new Hierarchical Port Binding feature and why deployers will want to enable it.  The session will start with a look at traditional pre-Kilo architectures using VLAN, GRE and VXLAN and cover the inefficiencies present in the deployments.  We’ll then walk through the basics of hierarchical port binding and how current architectures will benefit.  This session will include a demonstration of hierarchical port binding that combines open components of Linux, Neutron and switches supporting ONIE from the Open Compute Project. We’ll close with a survey how this architecture compares with other open source deployment options for Neutron.

How to Configure your Cloud and Tempest for Interoperability Testing
One of the most important promises of OpenStack is compatability and interoperability between private and public clouds. You can check how compliant your OpenStack deployment is by running Tempest against it and comparing the results to a known set of capabilities, like those listed by Defcore.

However, configuring Tempest, and configuring your cloud to work with Tempest, can be challenging for operators. In this talk we will show how you can use the refstack-client to automate your Tempest installation, what users and networks need to be in your cloud for testing, and the essential parameters to set in you tempest.conf to have a successful run.

The aim is to take the confusion and mystery out of Tempest and help you make interoperability testing a powerful tool for your operations toolkit.

FlexPod with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6
 


While enterprise customers are considering open source solutions such as OpenStack, many don't want to give up the level of support or integration they've come to depend on. They also don't want to deploy OpenStack on an infrastructure that is difficult to scale up or automate. So what's the solution? Deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6 on FlexPod provides a fully supported cloud platform that can scale.

 

Key Takeaways:

In this session, you will learn about Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6 running on a FlexPod Datacenter solution: a pre-validated, scale-out infrastructure built on Cisco UCS, Cisco Nexus, and NetApp storage with Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.

Ceph and OpenStack: current integration and roadmap
For more than a year, Ceph has become increasingly popular and saw several deployments inside and outside OpenStack. The community and Ceph itself has greatly matured.

Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability from terabytes to exabytes. Ceph utilizes a novel placement algorithm (CRUSH), active storage nodes, and peer-to-peer gossip protocols to avoid the scalability and reliability problems associated with centralized controllers and lookup tables.

The community has been really active integrating Ceph into OpenStack. This is getting better every releases.

With Juno we reached a critical step in terms of feature, robustness and stability. Kilo is really promising but we are not done yet.

In this session, Sebastien Han and Josh Durgin from Red Hat will describe the current state of the integration of Ceph into OpenStack and where are we heading to in term of roadmap. They will go through all the OpenStack project.

Is It Time to Have More than Just Python in OpenStack?
Since the beginning of OpenStack, there has been an explicit policy to have OpenStack be only in Python - and by "Python," we mean "CPython 2." But the world has moved on. Many well-regarded services are implemented in Java (e.g. Cassandra, Zookeeper, Kafka) and others are implemented in Go (e.g. Docker, etcd, others). Even Python has moved on, with all new effort focused on Python 3. This talk brings together a panel of people talking about experiences implementing OpenStack services or interfaces with Python 3, Java/Jython, or Go. Is it time to change the policy?

Ceph at CERN: A Year in the Life of a Petabyte-Scale Block Storage Service
The CERN IT Department operates a large distributed OpenStack infrastructure with around 10,000 VMs and 100,000 CPU cores. This cloud is predominantly used for physics data analysis, but there remains a long tail of conventional IT services and user-managed application VMs. These varied use-cases created a new requirement in our department, one to build a scalable, reliable, performant and future-proof block storage backend. To solve this problem, in mid-2013 we deployed 3 petabytes of Ceph software-defined storage.

This talk will present a year in the life of our Ceph cluster, focusing on the operations issues related to the RBD use-cases. Based on our experience hosting around 1000 Cinder volumes and 1500 Glance images, we’ll describe how the cluster is used, its access patterns and growth, mistakes we've made, problems overcome, upgrades successfully performed, and highlight some tips and tricks we’ve learned to tune both the servers (Ceph) and clients (qemu-kvm). Lastly, we’ll conclude by outlining our future plans for cloud-based block storage across our multiple datacentres and describe where we believe cloud storage may have further potential at CERN.

The Good and the Bad of the OpenStack REST APIs
As a relatively recent new user of OpenStack, I have mixed feelings about the current state of the OpenStack APIs. On one side, it is exciting to see how modular OpenStack is, how each module sports its own REST API, and how all of these APIs can interact and function together. But also, I can't help but notice that there are inconsistencies in the design of these various APIs, and that best practices associated with REST architecture are frequently ignored or violated.

The inconsistencies among the different APIs concern me very much. To help improve the situation, I have been an active member of the API Working Group since its inception. In this talk I want to share my personal views and pre-OpenStack experiences on REST API design, and contrast that to the state of the OpenStack APIs. Drawing from the reviews and discussions in the API Working Group, I plan to show actual examples of what I perceive are the problem areas. I'll be joined by one of the founding members of the API Working Group to talk about what we're doing to improve the APIs and the overall developer experience for users building applications and tools on OpenStack.

More specifically, the topics we'll cover are:

  • APIs vs. Web APIs vs. REST APIs. What's the difference?

  • The Good
    • Stateless servers

    • Modular APIs

    • Authentication


  • The Bad
    • Inconsistencies: pagination, sorting, searching. metadata handling

    • Actions vs. Resources

    • Lack of hypermedia

    • Client/Server coupling


  • OpenStack clients vs. OpenStack APIs

  • The API Working Group
    • Purpose

    • Scope

    • Guidelines


I hope by the end of the session you will have another perspective to consider when building applications and tools on the OpenStack APIs.

OpenStack Compute 101
OpenStack Compute (Nova), has been a core component of OpenStack since the original Austin release in 2010. In the intervening years development has proceeded at a rapid pace adding support for new virtualization technologies and exposing additional features. Come learn how Compute fits into the OpenStack architecture, and how it interacts with other OpenStack components and the hypervisors it manages.
 
We'll also take peek under the hood and discuss internal compute components and how their interactions combine to manage the virtual machine instance lifecycle including:

  • The Compute APIs.

  • The Compute Scheduler.

  • The Compute Conductor.

  • The Compute Agent.

Finally we will look at some of the features added in OpenStack Kilo, and what we might expect to see in L.

A CI/CD Alternative to Push and Pray for OpenStack
How do you validate OpenStack code and config changes before you push them to production? Rather than push and pray, we developed a CI/CD toolchain which allows us to review, test, and validate config and code changes before they land in production. Our process takes “infrastructure as code” fully to heart with integrated unit testing and tools that make it easier to spot errors earlier in the release process. In this talk we’ll follow a code change as it begins in a virtual OpenStack environment and proceeds through code review, puppet catalog testing, and the full release train. Topics covered include:

 



  • Creating virtual OpenStack environments for developers that mimic real systems



  • Using Jenkins & Gerrit internally to do code reviews and drive tests



  • Working with Puppet/configuration changes



  • Building and deploying OpenStack code



  • Deployments with Jenkins




This is an intermediate level talk that will provide good ideas on how you can deliver OpenStack code and config to your production environment.

High performance Neutron using SR-IOV and Intel 82599
OpenStack is a very flexible platform for a wide variety of workloads. However default open source plugin uses OpenVswitch project which imposes throughput and latency constraints on network heavy applications.

 

SR-IOV based approach has been available for a while which accelerates throughput and reduces the latency while still preserving the ability to provide network segregation to OpenStack tenants. Up to now SR-IOV implementation has been limited to Mellanox hardware. This presentation will describe Mirantis effort to add SR-IOV support using a common Intel 82599 network chip and other enhancements to add ability to bond SR-IOV interfaces in the VM. These changes can provide high performance, low latency, multi-tenant networks using a commodity chip built into a large number of server platforms.

OpenStack and OpenDaylight: The Way Forward
In this talk, Kyle Mestery (Neutron PTL), Colin Dixon (OpenDaylight Technical Steering Committee Chair) and Chris Wright (Red Hat Director of Networking) will discuss the past, present and future of the relationship between OpenStack and OpenDaylight.

If OpenStack has an obvious open source "sister-project" in the networking space, it's OpenDaylight. Like OpenStack, OpenDaylight is a large, community-driven open source project backed by a consortium of companies and individuals with no single dominant player. This makes OpenDaylight an obvious choice for a an OpenStack Neutron provider. Unsurprisingly, OpenDaylight has a Neutron plugin and we are working to improve it to better meet both communities' needs. We'll cover the current OpenDaylight support for OpenStack Neutron, give a quick demo, present our future plans, and (most importantly) ask for feedback about where we should be focusing our efforts.

IBM Cloud is Open by Design & Powered by OpenStack
 IBM and OpenStack have partnered for some time now to build the basic blocks of cloud. Even as we continue to build the pieces that are essential to strengthening clouds with flexibility, security & extensibility, we are witnessing a transformation in the marketplace toward hybrid cloud: a direct result of our labor. Ongoing activities in the community will help solidify OpenStack's position as the go-to open technology for enterprise-grade hybrid: an improved ability to migrate & replicate volumes in Cinder, robust federated identity support in Keystone with single sign-on in Horizon, and an even more extensible Horizon dashboard based upon AngularJS. IBM understands the value & transformative power that open communities have on the marketplace: we're proud to be working with OpenStack in these areas and others to bring a technology renaissance, based on innovative cloud technologies, to the world. Join Dr. Angel Diaz, IBM VP of Cloud Architecture & Technology and Moe Abdula, IBM VP of Cloud Foundation Services Product Management to learn how, with its open cloud architecture as a guide, IBM is bringing this innovation to clients & how open communities like OpenStack are transforming the way IBM is making hybrid cloud real.

Scality: Converging Object, File and Block for Simplified OpenStack storage management
OpenStack provides a wide array of persistent storage services, ranging from block services managed by the Cinder API, to object storage from the Swift service, to image storage via the Glance service. In the future, OpenStack will also offer persistent file services through the Manila project. For OpenStack administrators, this can create a management burden by imposing multiple independent storage silos to provide block, file and object storage for Nova based application instances.

What is required to simplify this problem is a scalable storage solution, that can grow organically to Petabytes of capacity, and scale-out performance for multiple application, workloads and protocols. The Scality RING is a Software Defined Storage (SDS) solution that frees storage administrators from purchasing hardware appliance based storage arrays, and converges multi-workload, multi-protocol services into a single management view, to provide Cinder, Glance, Swift and in the future Manila file storage services for 80% of OpenStack workloads. This session will explore the capabilities of the Scality RING to deliver these capabilities, and enable OpenStack developers with an increasing range of storage options for their applications - all with simplified storage management.

Energy Efficient VM Placement
The always growing demands for computational resources leads to our IT systems consuming already 2% of the world's energy consumption and continues to grow. Thus making data centers more energy efficient ("greener") is one of the key challenges that we face in IT. This is motivated by both economical and ecological motivation -- after all, the cost of energy has become one of the important factors of efficiently run data centers.

Virtualizing the infrastructure to enable more resource sharing and a higher resource utilization is a significant milestone in reducing the energy footprint and cost of compute infrastructure. With the success of cloud infrastructure the next level of optimization comes into focus: How do we place VMs most efficiently?

A lot of VM placement strategies were studied from a performance perspective with a focus on e.g. decreasing execution time for critical workloads or maximizing IO throughput.

The goal of this presentation is to to analyze the energy consumption of a cloud data center and discuss strategies for VM placement to optimize the energy consumption. Contrary to common beliefs, our results show that spreading (independent) workloads to multiple hosts tends to save energy as opposed to clustering it to few hosts -- at least as long as completely powering off hosts is not an option. The relationship between computational work done and energy consumption is non-linear, so placement strategies in the scheduler do make a difference also for energy efficiency

OVN: Native Virtual Networking for Open vSwitch
OVN is a new network virtualization project that brings virtual networking to the Open vSwitch user community.  It is being developed by the core OVS team.  OVN will support the same container and virtual machine environments as OVS, including KVM, Xen, and Hyper-V. OVN will include logical switches and routers, security groups, and L2/L3/L4 ACLs, implemented on top of a tunnel-based overlay network.  For physical-logical network integration, OVN will implement software gateways, as well as support hardware gateways from a variety of vendors.

The OVN architecture simplifies the current OVS integration within Neutron by providing a virtual networking abstraction.  OVN provides Neutron with improved dataplane performance through shortcut, distributed logical L3 processing and in-kernel based security groups, without running special OpenStack agents on hypervisors.

In this presentation, we will discuss the architecture of OVN, detail our development plans, and provide a demo.  The demo will show an OpenStack-driven OVN deployment connecting containers and Linux and Hyper-V based hypervisors.  We will also discuss how OVN leverages some of the newest features in OVS, which may be of interest to those writing their own OVS control planes.

Building a Production Grade PaaS platform like Bluemix on OpenStack, leveraging Container based scalable services.
Applications and services are the end goal for majority of operators and users of OpenStack. In this talk we are going to discuss building a production grade PaaS platform on top of OpenStack based on our experience deploying IBM's Cloud Foundry-based PaaS, Bluemix, on to IBM's OpenStack-based IBM Cloud Manager with OpenStack.

We will take you through our practical approach in terms of deploying, automating and maintaining a polyglot application platform IBM Bluemix on top of ICM by:

1. Leveraging key OpenStack Services like Neutron, Cinder, Keystone, Swift and open source tools such as Fog, Chef, BOSH, Ruby ERB

2. Outlining how application consume enterprise grade services running on Docker Containers deployed on OpenStack, which are brokered using a Service broker model.

3. Discussing the role of right networking for building a multi-tenant and scalable PaaS. We will detail configurations of Neutron setup using GRE tunnels, and how we reconfigured the topology to move from POC to production, and scaling in response to increasing traffic.

4. Detailing the role of Continuous integration and delivery in a polyglot platform like this, and we  tied everything from IaaS, to PaaS to a range of services is in an automated CI/CD pipeline.

5. Detailing how applications can leverage advanced features like autoscaling, load balancing, and monitoring by leveraging some of key OpenStack functionalities

6. Sharing some of the best practices for lifecycle management of this platform, both at the IaaS and PaaS level, and how day to day operational tasks can be automated.

Last but not the least, we will demonstrate Bluemix, and show how some of services like Swift and Container Service on OpenStack can be leveraged for application development.

Cinder 102: Pouring a solid foundation for block storage services


Cinder, at its core, provides basic provisioning and management of block storage volumes to users of OpenStack clouds. However, beyond basic volumes and snapshots, there is a lot of advanced capability for cloud administrators that can be leveraged to provide value added capability to end users, as well as for managing the lifecycle of volumes and storage subsystems.

 

 

This talk serves as a “102” level discussion of Cinder and will cover:

 

·      Consistency groups

 

·      Replicated volumes

 

·      Backup/Restore of volumes

 

·      Administrative operations

 

o   Volume migration

 

o   Foreign volume import/export

 

o   Resource pool management

 

o   Scheduler optimizations

 

Attendees will leave with a greater appreciation for the art-of-the-possible with Cinder in the Kilo release, knowledge of the various tools available to Cinder administrators, and practical knowledge around how a Cinder deployment can be optimized for both end-user and cloud administrator outcomes.

From hardware to NFV: lessons learned in deploying an OpenStack reference at scale
Sandvine is a telco network equipment vendor supplying 100+Gbps devices on custom hardware. As we are retooling for NFV, we have adopted OpenStack. In order to maximise our return from it, we decided to 'dogfood' it, and have rolled out a private cloud to our staff, partners, and lead customers, and are working at replacing our current lab 'pxe-boot' + 'vlan setup' automation with Openstack and Heat. This has become our reference platform for NFV.

Along the way we ran into a number of problems and challenges. In this talk I will describe some of the challenges we hit, and how we overcame them. I will also go through some of the adoption cycle problems, and how we got the various groups to align from 'virtualisation is bad' to 'I want more OpenStack' with strong champions.

Some of the specific challenges and solutions we implemented involve:

* Using layer-2 transparent networking in Neutron

* Having many more users and instances than public IPv4 addresses, a method to make this transparent via VPN + SSH

* Dealing with the rapid scale up associated with big groups adopting hard and fast

* Having very dynamic, short-lived instances, and the, problems that showed with race conditions in nova, and neutron

* Best practises for snapshots, and how we avoided snapshot proliferation with an 'auto-configuration' mechanism that stored changed in git

* Integration of keystone to Active Directory + Salesforce.com (for customer support and training usage)

* a desire to have an arbitrary remote machine, on remote network, join a heat-stack 

I will describe some of the best practises we came up with to accomodate a large and diverse community of users who showed a remarkable propensity to break things or find shortcomings.

What's Coming for IPv6 and L3 in Neutron
IPv6 in OpenStack Neutron has made progress enough that the addressing and L2 issues have been resolved.  Neutron still faces a number of issues when it comes to IPv6 and L3.  This talk will discuss these issues and how the Neutron team is addressing them in Kilo and future releases.

Routing IPv6 to and from the cloud requires out-of-band steps including the delegation of real routable IP addresses and completing the route to the Nuetron IPv6 subnet.  We will discuss improvements in Kilo to IP address management that will accomodate IPv6 delegation.  To complete the routing circuit post-Kilo, Neutron will integrate externally using protocols like BGP or IPv6 prefix delegation.

The reference L3 implementation in Kilo makes assumptions that restrict full IPv6 operation such as multiple IP addresses on a port and dual-stack routing.  Enhancements are planned for post-Kilo to address the L3 agent's short-comings.

Finally, we will discuss the inclusion of distributed routing for IPv6 after Kilo

The Road to a Hyper-Converged OpenStack
Next Generation Data Center architectures are designed around convergence of storage and compute. The narrative is that this convergence makes better business sense in terms of ROI. Still, this is only the first step in the right direction; looking at the software stack of existing solutions will reveal that the software components happen to execute on the same hardware but they are not aware of each other in terms of resource management, and specifically, interference. One may even characterize said convergence as integrated rather than converged.

A Hyper-convergence solution is one that not only places the various sub-systems on the same hardware but literally make them work in harmony. In this talk we will outline the requirements from a hyper-converged OpenStack and discuss solutions.

Federation of OpenStack Clouds - Challenges and Benefits
Cloud Federation is the concept of bringing different Cloud Service Providers into a single platform which provides interoperability and portability. As the future of cloud computing is getting commoditized, Federation is becoming a necessity. Such a Federation can be consumed through a cloud marketplace that offers a Catalog of services along with the metadata and insights about the providers.

 

Challenges:

  • Federated Identity management without compromising on the security of the cloud provider.

  • Workload management and orchestration.

  • Managing the cloud federation  through  common API's.

  • Benchmarking the service specification against the realized performance.

 

  • Usage data consolidation across providers.

 

The above challenges are addressed by some products partially.

 

Benefits for Consumers: Consumers can search, compare and select services they need for their applications and workloads. The marketplace will  provide  insights for consumers to make their selection decisions on cloud services and their providers.

 

Benefits for Providers: Marketplace helps the provider in monetizing the unutilized capacity  which can be used by another provider  with the same  cloud platform. Marketplace also plays a key role in promoting adoption of new service offerings and innovative delivery models.

 

This talk  will discuss a detailed view point on the following:

  • Cloud Federation & Marketplace

  • Challenges

  • Benefits

  • Key players of Cloud Marketplace

  • The role of OpenStack ecosystem in realizing a true Cloud federation

Verifying your OpenStack Cloud with Rally and Tempest
The OpenStack Tempest integration test suite was originally designed for testing code changes at the gate via Jenkins continuous integration.  This is still Tempest’s primary use case and is crucial to insuring code changes are not able to break a functioning source tree.  Tempest by itself does not provide a way to persist test results for historical purposes, nor does it provide any reporting functionality for comparing test runs to identify deltas between runs.  Another OpenStack project, Rally, fills these gaps in Tempest.

 

In this technical session we will illustrate the entire Rally verification cycle, from configuring Rally to connect to your OpenStack deployment.  We will outline best practices for running tempest, creating Rally reports that show the deltas between Tempest runs, and lastly running Tempest cleanup.

Core Services MySQL Database Backup and Recovery to Swift
If you’re running OpenStack, you rely heavily on MySQL for almost every service of your cloud infrastructure. This includes Nova, Keystone, and more. Everything might be humming along fine now but what if you have an outage? Whether it’s a catastrophic event or even improperly applying an update or schema change, losing critical data about your cloud is a possibility.

 

  • Do you backup the core MySQL database for your OpenStack cloud?

  • Do you perform multiple types targeted at different types of data problems?

  • Do you backup to a different location than your production data?

  • Is that location highly available, scalable, and secure?

 

In this session, experts in both MySQL and storage will discuss these issues. The speakers will share how Percona and SwiftStack address these issues with new open source software and proper planning. Enterprise OpenStack operators will leave this session with smart backup and storage strategies which will enable the fastest possible recovery when data problems occur.

Docker is as fresh and cool now as OpenStack was a few years ago and it seems every other CIO or CTO is eager for their IT organizations to be using it.    Openstack provides us a plethora ways to run Docker.    This talk will give a brief overview of Docker itself and will then describe a number of different ways to run Docker on Openstack ( or Openstack on Docker if you're truly crazy ) and discuss the pros and cons of each method.

We'll then discuss ways to operizationalize docker on openstack with tooling to help with tracking running containers,  collecting metrics and herding logs, as well as some ways to run your own private registry.

Finally we'll take some existing applications which may not seem to be good cantidates for running in docker containers and demonstrate some tools and techniques for making them more suitable to run in a container to show that even existing legacy applications can benefit from being containerzied without needing to modify them in any significant way, including taking advantage of service discovery.

Herding Cats: Getting an open source community to work on the same thing
Have you ever wondered how to get a big new feature completed in an open-source project? Getting people in the same company to work together can be a daunting task. Getting people to work together for a common goal when their employers actually compete with one another is quite a bit harder. Despite the challenges, the OpenStack Swift community came together to create the biggest new feature the project has ever seen.

 

Between June of 2013 and June of 2014, the OpenStack Swift community designed, built, and delivered storage policies, a major new feature that enables a ton of new use cases for users. This talk will briefly cover the feature implemented, but we'll mostly talk about how contributors from different companies came together and the lessons learned from that experience.

 

 

If you contribute an open source project, you'll want to hear what we did right, what we did wrong, tools we invented, tools we threw out, and how you can take these lessons we learned to your own project. We'll cover development work, review work, how we did communication, how we tracked tasks, and what we learned through it all.

Service Chaining using Neutron Networks Implemented as Standard Compliant Layer 3 VPNs
A “Service Chain” is a deployment where a sequence of appliances intermediate traffic between networks. The service chain should be configured and managed in software that adds and removes services from the chain in an automated way.

We will discuss how service chaining can be supported on devices using MPLS/BGP VPN technology implementing Neutron virtual networks.

 

Connecting appliances in a sequence has been done for many years using VLANs. However, "service-chaining" cannot be implemented without solving the problem of how to bring in traffic from a routed network into the set of appliances. The issue is always how to attract the traffic in and forward it out of the service-chain, i.e., how to integrate the service-chain with routing. By using the same mechanism to route traffic in and out of a service chain as well as through its intermediate hops, the implementation of service chains can be significantly simplified.

 

Besides the integration with routing, which is necessary, the main aspect of service-chaining is not the number of services or hops in a chain but rather how to implement a service that is conceptually one hop away but scales horizontally to tens or hundreds of virtual appliances. By using a virtual routing instance (VRF) construct (i.e., a distributed router) to implement service chaining, the load balancing is built-in.

 

We will also discuss the need to integrate Openstack allowed-address-pair extension with dynamic route updates in order to support high-availability services in service chains.

 

We will show how service chaining is applicable to 3GPP networks where IP services offered to wireless subscribers are inherently service chains of appliances. So called Gi or SGi network interfaces in 3GPP provide IP services and connects wireless subscribers to external public or private packet networks (Internet, intranet,  private and public cloud,  IMS, etc). Examples of SGi services are: Web proxies, TCP optimization, video optimization, Intrusion Detection/Preventions Systems (IDS/IPS), Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), CGNAT, firewall, etc.

Using Rally for OpenStack certification at Scale!
It goes without saying that one of the most important things all OpenStack clouds from big to small is to be 100% sure that everything works as expected BEFORE taking on production workloads.

To ensure that production workloads will be successful, we can do a few key things:
1) Generate real load test from "real" OpenStack users
2) Collect and retain detailed execution data for examination and historical comparison
3) Measure workload performance and failure rate against established SLAs to validate a deployment
3) Visualize results in beautiful graphic detail

Rally can fully automate these steps for you and save dozens if not hundreds of hours.

How? Come see our talk!

Challenges to Hybrid Cloud Deployment with OpenStack to Enterprises
Challenges to Hybrid Cloud Deployment with OpenStack in Enterprises

By Larry Jiang, CEO of KeyTone Cloud

Hybrid-cloud deployment is gaining more and more attention/momentum in the Enterprise and Telco SP markets in China. The most important reasons for Chinese enterprises to adopt hybrid cloud deployment include:  hybrid cloud deployment gives enterprises security and control they want to keep sensitive data and apps (This is especially so in Asian countries), at the same time they have the options of running applications in public clouds so as to utilize the elasticity and flexibility of public clouds when needed. 

Deployment of hybrid clouds based on OpenStack to enterprises in China, however, faces many challenges at many fronts. The following are the major issues that KeyTone Cloud, a hybrid-cloud technology enabler and cloud service provider, encounters with enterprise “hybrid cloud deployment”. The quotes for “hybrid cloud deployment” reflect the following complex scenarios and requirements of hybrid cloud deployment, as interpreted by Chinese enterprises (their definitions of hybrid-cloud):

Scenario #1: Utilizing inter-connected private cloud and public cloud. This is the traditional definition of hybrid cloud. Enterprises adopt public clouds for agility, elasticity, and capacity; and they adopt private cloud for security, control, and special enterprise workloads. The challenges for OpenStack here are the cloud inter-connection functionalities, cross-platform VM migration capability, and bursting of applications from one cloud to another type of cloud platform. We resolved theses issues to certain extent with implementing L3 GRE Tunneling, enhanced IPSec VPN service, and supporting BYOI (Bring Your Own Image) in a OpenStack-based cloud platform. Cloud-bursting of applications from one cloud to another can be achieved with OpenStack application orchestration module HEAT and KeyTone developed BYOI functionality.

Scenario #2:  Hosting of Physical Servers (Bare Metal) and Virtual Machines on the same virtual network in OpenStack. Some customers refer this as “hybrid cloud” too in China. No matter what we call this kind of cloud deployment, often times some Enterprise Applications could not run on VMs on OpenStack due to various reasons and the Apps have to be run on physical servers. The physical servers need to be on the same virtual network of VMs to make the whole application system functional. We enhanced OpenStack so that not only we can manage and provision baremetal but also we are able to add physical servers to the virtual networks the VMs are on, thus allow the physical servers to utilize the L4-L7network services such as connecting to Virtual Router, ELB, Floating IP, etc. the same way as the VMs. 

Scenario #3:  Managing OpenStack VMs, IBM Power VMs, vCenter provisioned VMs on the same virtual network on a OpenStack platform. With the capability we achieved in Scenario  #2, allowing Power VMs and VMs provisioned in vCenter to be part of the resource pools in OpenStack and to utilize the network services provided by Neutron become a reality. The capability of managing VMs provisioned in multiple clouds in a single pane of glass in OpenStack is what enterprise customers want to protect their existing investment in other clouds solutions (such as VMware, PowerVC, & Azure). 

To summarize, KeyTone Cloud enhanced and implemented many new IaaS and SDN functionalities on top of OpenStack to meet various challenges with deploying OpenStack based Hybrid Clouds to enterprises. The elastic cloud services that KeyTone has implemented on top of OpenStack include, but not limited to, the following:

·         Auto Scaling of VMs in an ELB group

·         Live Vertical Scale-up of VM instance without rebooting it

·         Site-to-Site L3 GRE tunneling

·         Host-to-Site VPN service over PPTP and OpenVPN

·         Supporting BYOI - Bring Your Own Image

 

·         Hosting of Physical servers and VMs in the same network on OpenStack

Catalog of Apps for OpenStack
Until now we’ve all faced a challenge in porting applications to run on OpenStack. Today we introduce a catalog of applications for OpenStack hosted by the Foundation at catalog.openstack.org. Community members who have ported and tested apps can publish Glance Images, Heat Templates, and Murano App Packages to the catalog. The catalog provides the infrastructure for peer review and, in the near future, continuous integration testing. As of Kilo, Murano includes the ability to pull app packages directly from catalog.openstack.org, including the Glance Images they depend upon, in a single simple command. When used with Murano, Catalog.openstack.org provides a community-driven vehicle for quick and easy OpenStack application distribution and deployment.

Because Data: Why does Enterprise Storage Matter for OpenStack?
Enterprise IT is constantly challenged to react faster to business demands, a major factor in the Enterprise adoption of Cloud technologies. As workloads are rapidly migrating into the cloud, there are a number of critical questions about a company's data that needs to be addressed. Are we compliant? Is it protected? How can I move it? How much does it cost? And even, where is it physically?

Enterprises hesitate deployment of OpenStack into production without a plan in place to answer these questions.

Join NetApp's Sr. Director of OpenStack Cloud Solutions Jeff O'Neal, as he moderates a panel of industry experts from Red Hat, SUSE, HP, and Intel as they discuss enterprise IT's expectations for securing and managing their data, and what the future holds for storage technology in the Private Cloud.

OpenStack Governance :: Hierarchies and Bridges
In its almost five years of existance, OpenStack has grown at an incredible rate into one of the largest open-source projects on the planet. As with any software project - open-source or not - what's ultimately important is the software we produce but yet we must invest much effort into perfecting how we produce it. For a project to scale from dozens of contributors to thousands of contributors, that's especially true.

One aspect of any project's makeup that is fundamental to its identity is its governance model. This talk will describe OpenStack's governance model in the context of other open-source governance models, with particular attention paid to how the project maintains a balance between the commercial interests sponsoring the vast majority of the work done on the project, and the open, transparent and welcoming 'doacracy' which creates the ideal environment for technical collaboration.

This past year has seen a number of fascinating debates within OpenStack - around commercial trademark usage policies, our contributor license agreements, voting methods, cross-project governence, the increase in scope of project, and much more. How these debates were conducted and resolved illustrates the nuances of our governance, so Mark will share his perspective on these debates from his vantage point as a contributor, former technical committee member and director of the foundation.

Supporting Network Bandwidth Guarantees with OpenStack: an Implementation Perspective
In multi-tenant clouds, network bandwidth guarantees can greatly improve predictability of application performance, cost and service uptime. OpenStack deployments are starting to gain such capabilities, for example using the vendor specific VMware NSX QoS extension for the NSX Neutron plugin, in addition to other recent proposals in the OpenStack community and in the academic research community.

In this talk, we will present our implementation experiences in developing a PoC for bandwidth guarantee and work conservation in OpenStack based on our published research papers: Gatekeeper and ElasticSwitch. We will describe requirements for a general bandwidth guarantee framework, including alternative models for specifying guarantees, and admission control and guarantee enforcement. We will highlight open issues with OpenStack and cross-project dependencies (e.g., between Neutron, Nova, and eventually Gantt) that pose key challenges for integrating bandwidth guarantees into OpenStack. Finally, we will show a system demonstration and share our proposal for upstream contribution. 

 

Attendees will gain insight into the benefits of using bandwidth guarantees in conjunction with conventional rate limiting and pure best effort networking. Attendees will also learn about our experiences and challenges in adding guarantee enforcement to OpenStack, and see how this capability is used to support applications deployed on OpenStack.

High Availability and Resiliency Testing Strategies for OpenStack Clouds
One of the key requirements for any Openstack cloud deployment is High availability(HA).  High Availability refers to the availability of resources in the wake of component failures in the system. Hardware or software failures, bugs, traffic spikes combined with a lack of redundancy can bring even the best-resourced Openstack cloud crashing down. Even if applications are architected for resiliency, these efforts are futile if critical components suffer an outage. Before deploying your public and private Openstack clouds in production, how do you validate that they are highly available? How can you assure that your Openstack cloud can sustain server-level outages? 

 

In this session, join Behzad Dastur, Ajay Kalambur, and Pradeep Chandrasekar, as they cover High Availability testing strategies at individual component level and system level. Geared for anyone who wants to get an idea of various test strategies for Openstack HA , attendees will learn: 

  • How to test OpenStack for resiliency with concurrent load operations during an availability disruption event

  • Different types of HA triggers across process, system, and network levels

  • Limitations in existing OpenStack testing tools such as Rally and Tempest from a HA test perspective

  • Overview of the HA tool we developed to automate HA testing

  • Testing of database nodes, RabbitMQ, compute and network nodes for HA

  • Use cases and examples of tailored configurations for HA

 

Come learn about HA testing and accompanying tools so you can replicate this in your Openstack cloud.

How to Dimension Your OpenStack Cloud
One of the questions anyone faces when deploying OpenStack is how to dimension the hardware resources for the cloud platform. The amount of resources required for 'compute' nodes is rather straightforward: it depends on the number and flavor of the VMs that are to be deployed on the cloud as well as the overcommit ratio allowed for the various resources on the compute nodes. However, dimensioning of hardware resources for 'controller' nodes is not as straightforward. This talk presents a simple measurement-based model that can be used to predict the resource demand of the various OpenStack services under different usage conditions. The talk also shows the applicability of this model in (1) dimensioning hardware resources when designing an OpenStack cloud and (2) predicting scalability limits given the available hardware resources for the cloud platform.

Human Genome Sequencing with OpenStack Swift
The next generation of human genome sequencers are a revolution in rapid disease diagnostics and custom gene therapy. Now it is within our grasp to develop to develop individual treatments for cancer patients and more quickly diagnose infectious diseases. However, this massive amount of sequencing requires large-scale, high-throughput storage.

 

In this talk, the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology will presents how we are using OpenStack Swift as a component in our genomics-as-a-service. The recently purchased Illumnia X Ten’s automatically place the institute in the petabyte-scale. Attempting to use traditional storage is problematic as costs grow exponentially with scale. OpenStack Swift enables long-term sustainable storage using commodity storage hardware and open source software.

 

The talk will present our deployment and configuration of OpenStack Swift. Specifically, how OpenStack Swift storage policies are configured so that we can offer varying levels of storage durability and availability. We will also talk about how we scale the storage seamlessly which would normally be difficult with block storage alternatives.

Next generation imaging science, OpenStack style
When the Queensland Brain Institute, one of the largest dedicated Neuroscience research organisations on the planet, decided that it was time for a monumental shift in the way scientists used and took advantage of computational resources for imaging workloads, there were some clear goals. Namely:

1. It needed to be flexible.

2. It needed to be adaptable.

3. It needed to provide scalable compute capacity

4. It needed to grow with the organisation.

The dedicated scientific imaging team combined with the ICT group realised that a sensible approach to these issues was to utilise the cloud computing environment that had been created "in the background" in the form of the NeCTAR federated openstack cloud. This environment initially wasn't the right 'shape' for an imaging environment workload, but the team adapted certain workflows to do this.

In this presentation, the audience will see and be introduced into an 'elastination' of the OMERO OpenMicrocopy Environment to run upon the OpenStack platform, as well as being given a preview of the use of cloud based image deconvolution. The talk will delve into the computational constructs of imaging science, the complexities of scalability in this space and how OpenStack has solved a large, (several petabytes of data in scale) storage and computational problem for the life sciences.

The talk promises to be both technical, deeply focused and quirky, but also approachable, lightly academic and appropriate for those on the periphery who want to learn how they can become involved in using such technologies as Ceph, Swift and in general the nova-compute principles to their strategic advantage in life sciences (or beyond).

How Neutron builds network topology for your multi-tier application?
In this session, I will correlate an example multi-tier application network architecture with Neutron and demonstrate how beautifully Neutron builds the topology, combining multiple open source components. From a high level, you’ll learn about the process in a network deployment of an example multi-tier application—composed of a web server cluster, application server cluster, and database server cluster—including:


  • Creating networks.



  • Deploying instances to networks.



  • Connecting networks together using virtual routers.



  • Deploying firewalls between networks.



  • Placing a load balancer in front of each application and configuring it to load balance traffic to each application.



  • Creating site-to-site connection using VPNaaS and understanding its use case for a production deployment.


Then, from a low level, you’ll learn how this is achieved by Neutron. This involves a detailed explanation of what happens within Neutron api, dhcp, l3-routing, namespace, l2 agent, firewall, load balancer, VPN and other layers when each action above is performed, what open source components are used in each layer and how those different components work together to create the network topology for the multi-tier application.

Deep Dive Into a Highly Available OpenStack Architecture
Many organizations choose OpenStack for it’s distributed architecture, and ability to deliver Infrastructure-as-a-Service platforms for mission critical applications. In such environments, that run production workloads, the cloud control plane is ought to provide maximum possible up-time, and it is crucial to build an OpenStack cloud deployment where all OpenStack services are in a highly available configuration. Deploying a highly available control plane for OpenStack can be achieved in various configurations, each would serve certain set of demands, and introduce growing set of prerequisites.

In this talk Arthur Berezin will discuss the following:

- Overview of a highly available OpenStack architecture using Pacemaker and HAProxy.

- In-depth overview of each of OpenStack’s core services, their behaviour and readiness for to run in a highly available configuration.

- Review of new features added to the OpenStack Juno and Kilo releases to better support a complete active/active configuration.

Deploying a Hybrid Cloud with OpenStack: Dynamic Service Automation
Hybrid cloud represents the next evolution in enterprise cloud architecture and enables businesses to enjoy the best of both worlds: infrastructure resource elasticity with the flexibility of a public cloud, and the security, control and regulatory compliance of a private cloud.

As ideal as hybrid cloud may sound, it still can face challenges from both sides.  There are still significant complexities to federate disparate domains in the wide area networks together to securely and reliably connect and scale public and private clouds in an integrated way. Operational challenges of managing heterogeneous environments with different architecture requires a new approach, as well as a clean approach to agile software delivery and continuous integration. Finally, there is a need to create these environments in a secure, scalable, and multi-tenant manner. 

 

This session will dive into real life customer use-cases which have been deployed.  We will walk you through how the aforementioned challenges were resolved, as well as talk about the best practices to deliver a simple and scalable method of deploying and operating hybrid clouds by interconnecting OpenStack-based private cloud with public cloud environments.

OpenStack Ousts vCenter for DevOps and Unites IT Silos at AVG Technologies
Does your IT department’s left hand talk to the right hand? Finally ours does at AVG! This is the story of OpenStack as our salvation, and important lessons learned in technology and IT politics.

 


Our appsdev team’s devops abilities were being held ransom on vCenter, so we wanted public cloud agility for dev/test/staging. With the help of our IT partner tcp cloud who will be on stage with us, we were able to hybridize with public and real private open source IaaS on OpenStack… all highly available, all wicked performance, all pillars of compute, network and storage.



 

Our talk will include the details of how:

-          Our staging with vCenter went from 10 days to now 15 minutes with devops and OpenStack Heat

-          Our CI processes are setup today with Heat

-          We got open source SDN with OpenContrail and F5 load balancing for high-performance north-south and east-west traffic

-          We got to leverage our existing physical network and Hitachi storage

-          We integrated some virtual (NFV-style) load balancing and anti-DDoS

-          tcp cloud helped us stand up 3 global DCs with pure OpenStack, Puppet and Salt and where you can get scripts and instructions to do the same

-          we reunited the left and right hand of IT: apps-dev and infrastructure


and we’ll share WHAT NOT TO DO with NO BS!

Poppy - A CDN Provisioning Service for OpenStack
OpenStack operators have many choices when incorporating a Content Delivery Network (CDN) into their infrastructure -- the CDN marketplace has both tried-and-true vendors and up-and-coming upstarts with innovative new features.
But these vendors often have highly-customized and proprietary provisioning APIs. This can be problematic when an operator wishes to support multiple providers -- or swap out one vendor for another. And these challenges spill over to developers who become
forced into codifying the CDN instructions for multiple vendors into their applications. Poppy aims to solve these challenges. Written as a modular, vendor-neutral API, Poppy incorporates a driver-based model that wraps provisioning instructions for all CDN
vendors that support it. Application developers can write their code once, and Poppy will handle all the requisite translations behind-the-scenes. Come and join the Poppy team's Collaboration Day as we talk about what has been accomplished over the past year.
Learn how Poppy is working in a production environment today. Help us define the important features for the next cycle and what you would like to see in Poppy to help your usecases.

OpenStack in an Ever Expanding World of Possibilities
Over the past several years we have seen the continued adoption of OpenStack and it’s expansion into new areas:  from cloud service providers, enterprise private clouds to large media companies, and big science.

In the developer world, open source projects, including as Docker, Mesos, Kubernetes, and Spark are gaining a lot of attention and moving onto both private and public clouds.  Kolla and Magnum work at the intersection of these projects and OpenStack. Meanwhile new standards and open source based platforms for network functions virtualization (NFV) are fueling a need for OpenStack reference architectures such as OPNFV, and carrier-grade capabilities.   

This all adds up to an abundance of options from which application developers may choose, and choices for us to make as we integrate new capabilities into the OpenStack platform and align with other developer communities.

This session will cover how these projects and activities relate to each other and can further expand the utility and adoption OpenStack across a broad range of use cases.

Making Glance Tasks Work For You
It's not widely known that the OpenStack Images API v2 contains an implementation of a "tasks" API that can be customized by operators to enable asynchronous processing of long-running operations.  For example, a deployer might want to enable end users to upload their own custom images ... but only after such images have been approved by some thorough, computation-intensive validation process.  The Glance tasks API provides a common interface across OpenStack installations, but allows the implementation of tasks to be customizable to a particular cloud environment.  Join Brian Rosmaita, Compute Control Plane Product Manager at Rackspace, and Nikhil Komawar, Glance Project Technical Lead and software developer at Rackspace, to see how Glance tasks are being used at Rackspace and to learn how you can use Glance tasks in your OpenStack cloud.

Distributed Messaging System for OpenStack at Scale
Currently, OpenStack heavily relies on central broker for message distribution, like RabbitMQ. Theoretically it cannot scale-out very well due to restrictions of central messaging cluster. As a result, nova-cell has been proposed to improve its scalability, but other projects cannot benefit from this feature and moreover, this nova-only feature is still not production-ready.

According to our observation and experience on large-scale deployments, we prefer the only broker-less RPC driver supported by oslo_messaging library, 0MQ. Although the driver in the upstream still needs polish, the general architecture is reliable, resilient, efficient and more important, it's fully distributed (No SPOF).

This driver has been used in private & public clouds which we are in charge of. I would like to talk about the idea behind 0MQ driver, the lessons learned along the way, the current development status in the upstream and why brokerless messaging is the future.
