Rackspace Keynote: Just Rebels? Or A Rebel Alliance?

OpenStack’s remarkable progress, traction with users and vibrant community changed the course of computing. But that’s not enough to keep this thing going in the face of intensified competition and mounting complexity. Now we have to get big. That means extending what the cloud can be, embracing interoperability and engaging more diverse contributors. It means coming together to define what users need and making it strong enough to scale.

Are Enterprises Ready for the OpenStack Transformation?

OpenStack is not product, it’s a process. Building an OpenStack cloud should never be the beginning nor the end of a cloud project. This is so because:

  1. OpenStack is not a product that tries to solve any one business problem in particular, but a technology that aims to be usable by as many as possible
  2. Since the beginning of computing, projects which include a culture shift require the for the enterprise processes to evolve too, and this is often the hardest part of a cloud project
  3. OpenStack is a growing technology, as are the requirements of users, and if you do not plan to make your cloud continuously evolve, you are as good not doing an enterprise cloud project

Based on our experience delivering cloud project to enterprises, this presentation will give some key learnings on what are the required steps to make sure that your enterprise is ready for the OpenStack transformation.

Multi-Tenant Bare Metal Provisioning with Ironic

Rackspace deploys a lot of servers. Over the years we’ve developed a huge variety of tools that we leverage to automate bare-metal deployment on behalf of customers. Recently we’ve undertaken a project to add Ironic to our arsenal of bare-metal deployment tools.

Ironic is an OpenStack project which offers an API for bare metal provisioning. Ironic's first "customer" has been the TripleO project, which targets Cloud operators searching for a means of easily bootstrapping hardware in a trusted environment.

This session will discuss the challenges we have faced in adapting Ironic for use in a multitenant environment. Topics covered will include network isolation, hardware security, operational reliability and how we have harnessed Ironic’s flexible driver model to automate provisioning for our customers. This session will also include a discussion of the direction and scope of Ironic and where the boundary should lie between Ironic and Nova.

Filling the Management Gap: Cloud Management Platforms for Managing OpenStack and Other Cloud Infrastructures
Limited Capacity full

Many enterprises are confused about what OpenStack is and how they will manage OpenStack deployments. OpenStack is the leading private cloud-enabled infrastructure, but there is another entire category of solutions called cloud management platforms (CMPs) that fill critical management gaps for cloud-enabled infrastructures.

In this session, you will learn how CMPs bring critical management capabilities like chargeback/showback, configuration and lifecycle management, orchestration, automation, and governance driven by IT-defined policies, and capacity and utilization reporting to your OpenStack deployment.

Leave this session understanding: 

  1. Differences between cloud-enabled infrastructure management capabilities and CMP management capabilities.
  2. How a CMP can help you control your OpenStack deployment and more by integrating existing virtualization and public cloud providers.
  3. How Red Hat CloudForms works with Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure to cost-effectively accelerate your journey to private/hybrid IaaS cloud.

Q&A Panel with Media and Analyst Covering OpenStack

The analysts and media who cover OpenStack will offer direct, unvarnished feedback in this moderated panel. Come and join the conversation, covering questions like: 

- Why do we keep talking about the "benevolent dictator vs technical meritocracy" question? Why do some     think that OpenStack needs its own Linus Torvalds? 

- The rumor mill tells us that vendors have a growing number of large deployments in production. But those   customers have their vendors under strict NDA. Are we doing a disservice to the larger IT community by     not alluding to those as-yet-unannounced OpenStack deployments?

- What are the top pet peeves media and analysts have when talking to vendors and users in the              ecosystem? What do you wish we'd stop saying, and why?

- Why are vendors and enterprises drawn to OpenStack, and what is preventing greater adoption?  This    promises to be an engaging and frothy session.

Under the Hood with Nova, Libvirt, and KVM
The Libvirt driver for Nova is one of the most comprehensive implementations across all supported hypervisors. It is quite common for new functionality to be added Libvirt before it hits the others. API calls to manage instances generally translate to a complex set of interactions between Nova, Libvirt and QEMU/KVM.
During this talk, we will go under the hood to understand exactly what our KVM hypervisors are doing when various requests are made. This includes a deep dive into the sequence of operations when an instance is spawned, resized, migrated (live and cold), rebuilt or snapshot, to name a few. Which areas are most brittle and why? What happens when these operations fail of complete impartially? How can we recover? You will be able to answer these and many other related questions once we are through this technical jam session.
We will also cover some of the functionality added for Ice House and the new Libvirt and KVM capabilities driving Nova-related development.

An Overview of Open Source Backends for Neutron
It is rather well known that Neutron comes with a built-in networking backend made of several agents which interact with the ML2 plugin. They are:

  • The Openvswitch and Linuxbridge agents, which manage L2 connectivity
  • The DHCP agent, which is responsible for managing IP leases
  • The L3 agent, which takes care of L3 forwarding, Source NAT for externally-bound traffic and Floating IPs
  • The metadata agent, which connects Neutron networks to the Nova metadata server
  • And last but not least, the agents for managing advanced services such as Load Balancing, Firewalling, and VPN
However, the choice of Open Source solution which can be used as a Neutron backend is actually wider; deployers are therefore able to choose the backend which better fits their architectural model. The aim of this talk is therefore to

  • explore these backends, and briefly look at their capabilities and architecture
  • analyze how they integrate with Neutron, and how they mix & match with the various neutron agents
  • see them in action (*) and discuss pro and cons
This talk will look at both backends which are in the Neutron source code tree and backends which are not yet there (**)
(*) at least some of them as the allocated time slot would hardly allow for showing all
(**) support for some backends such as ODL and OpenContrail is currently under review and might or might not be merged by the time of the summit.

Continuous Integration Testing for Your Database Migrations
This isn't a talk about OpenStack. This is a talk about how OpenStack does database migration continuous integration, and how other projects might be able to learn from what we've done.

OpenStack is an interesting project in that it runs in a variety of different scale scenarios. There are very small deployments of only a few machines, up to large public clouds of thousands of machines. The OpenStack project takes Continuous Integration (CI) very seriously, and runs a suite of unit and integration tests on all proposed patches.

One thing we weren't very good at testing was database upgrades though. We have unit tests for many of them, but we don't know how these upgrades affect real users in the field. As a response, a small team I manage have worked on adding database migration testing to our CI environment. This new test infrastructure is open source (https://github.com/stackforge/turbo-hipster), and extensible. It currently runs tests on smaller databases, as well as a largish real user database. It has already caught two significant performance problems in database migrations.

This talk will cover how the test infrastructure is built, what we've learned from the six months of running it that we'll have had by the time of the conference, as well as telling a story about some of the bugs we've found and how we fixed them.

The State of OpenStack Data Processing: Sahara, Now and in Juno

The Sahara project (ex. Savanna), integrated project in Juno under the OpenStack Data Processing program, provides users an ability to provision and manage Hadoop clusters on OpenStack, and has seen a great deal of progress, development, and changes during the Icehouse development cycle. The focus of the project is on two primary use cases: on-demand cluster provisioning and on-demand Hadoop task execution (Elastic Data Processing).

In this talk, we will provide an overview of project Sahara, its main goals and focus, and a tour of new features introduced in the Icehouse cycle. These features include: integration with Heat, basic API tests in Tempest, enabled asynchronous gate, and bunch of new Elastic Data Processing (EDP) features. We’ll also discuss new Hortonworks Data Platform plugin features, data-locality support, and the ability to use Sahara through the command line. Finally, we will discuss the roadmap for the Juno release.

After attending this session, you will have a good understanding for where Sahara is now and where it’s going, particularly with regard to the Unified Agent approach, on which we’re currently working on leveraging in Sahara

Security for Private OpenStack Clouds
Private clouds are much more than just a public cloud behind a firewall. Private clouds reach into the enterprise and have deep integration with key shared infrastructure that is external to the cloud such as LDAP, Storage, VLANs, DNS, NTP, etc. Furthermore, private clouds have a different threat profile. Users may be from the same organization, but insider attacks and targeted external attacks motivate unique security solutions.
This talk begins with a look at the different threats between public and private clouds, both technical and human. Then we will explore how these differences motivate different security solutions for private cloud deployments. This talk will cover both high level concepts and technical details, providing useful information for anyone interested in private cloud security.

OpenStack and the Transformation of the Data Center

As virtualization and cloud computing moves forward, the traditional data center as we know it is being transformed - changing into a large, highly automated fabric of physical systems and virtualized services.    Now controlled by software API’s and automation, past systems for managing the complexity of data center operations are being replaced by cloud platforms with new models driven by software, DevOps, analytics, and big data.

OpenStack is right in the center of this transformation.  As a collection of loosely coupled services, not only is OpenStack creating a rich platform for building and deploying applications, it’s changing the way in which data centers themselves are operated. OpenStack is quickly becoming a new layer in the software stack in the data center, managing infrastructure below and orchestrating applications above. 

And, as we know, OpenStack itself keeps evolving, introducing new services and capabilities with each new release.  OpenStack is now playing a role orchestrating anything that can be deployed as a virtual machine including virtualized network functions (NFV) such as firewalls, VPN’s, and load balancers.  Major ISP’s and others in the telecom industry are therefore looking to NFV to not only lower the operational cost of deployments and upgrades, but to also provide a basis for offering innovative new services to their customers.   Lastly, these trends also intersect with the exploding interest in big data and network analytics. When combined, Openstack, NFV, big data, and analytics together are driving this transformation of the data center and change the very definition of infrastructure services across our industry.

Nova's March Towards Live Upgrade Capability
In large deployments, some piece of Nova is deployed almost everywhere.
Until recently, the story for how you upgrade to using a newer version of this fast-paced project has been turn off the cloud" -- an unacceptable answer for something that aims to be deployed at a scale large enough to make such a plan unfeasible. Over the last several releases, "upgrade-ability" has been a major theme of development for the Nova team, shooting for both reduced downtime of core components and elimination of the need to "turn off the cloud" while thousands of nodes are upgraded atomically.
This talk will cover the incremental steps we have made in recent cycles, as well as reveal the major new capability that the Icehouse release brings to the table.

Learning to Trust the Cloud / Securing OpenStack with Intel Trusted Computing (Combined)
Cloud computing provides obvious economic and manageability benefits. Unused resources in production environments can be used to deploy development instances. Public clouds mean we can avoid buying rooms full of mostly idle hardware just to cater for worst case scenarios. And, thanks to hypervisors imposing isolation between instances, this should all come at no cost to security.
But is that true? What happens if someone does break out of a guest? What damage can they do? How can we detect it? What's the absolutely worst case scenario? With increasing levels of concern over low-level system vulnerabilities, how can we reassure users that their cloud environments are secure?
This presentation will cover the various techniques and technologies required to build a truly trustworthy cloud, ranging from boot attestation to runtime introspection. It will also discuss techniques that attackers can potentially use to gain persistent access to systems, perhaps even over reinstallation.

Hosting Hybrid (Bare-metal + Virtualized) Applications on OpenStack
OpenStack is quickly gaining momentum as a general-purpose IaaS platform to host a variety of applications. However, for some applications, running on shared or general-purpose virtualized hardware may be suboptimal or even unacceptable for a number of reasons, including performance or security. Workloads that can benefit from dedicated, physical systems include extremely I/O intensive and/or CPU intensive applications (analytics, 3D modeling, media transcoding, HPC, etc) or applications designed to leverage specialized hardware such as GPUs. Moreover, many applications have 'hybrid' nature, comprising different components with different infrastructure requirements, that can be best met with different kinds of hardware -- virtualized or bare-metal.
In this talk we will survey the main challenges in hosting 'bare-metal' and 'hybrid' applications in the cloud in general, and using OpenStack in particular, will outline possible design approaches, and will demonstrate how OpenStack can be enhanced to optimally host such applications.

Tempest Scenario Tests: An Introduction for Testing your OpenStack Cloud
When you build a new cloud or modify part of an OpenStack module, you need to test whether the cloud is working properly. However, do you have enough test suite for that?
Tempest is the official OpenStack integrated test suite. Especially, the scenario tests are ”through path” tests of OpenStack function, have real-life use cases and can test the interaction between multiple OpenStack services.


This talk includes:
  • What is a 'Scenario test'?
  • Overview of the current Scenario tests
    • What types of things can be tested by the scenario tests?
    • The goal
  • How to use it
  • How to add more scenarios
  • Demonstration
    • Look at the demo environment
    • Execute a scenario test case
    • Verify the result

High Availability in Neutron - Getting the L3 Agent Right
To provide public connectivity to virtual machines, you can install the Neutron L3 Agent which aims to connect your VM to external networks (Internet for example) through virtual routers and also connect VM between internal private networks.


Also, your VMs could be reachable from outside by using floating IP, thanks to NAT process to reach the VM. The L3 Agent was multi-node ready from Grizzly release, but if you lost an L3 agent node, you also lost virtual routers and then the external connectivity for virtual machines.
Until Icehouse, there was not proper way to bring L3 connectivity highly available without losing the agent scalability.


This talk will provide a view of the work which has been made on the L3 agent and the virtual routers during the last release regarding to the high availability. The High Availability of the L3 agent will ensure there will be no downtime between external and internal networks and between internal networks connectivity, even with the lost of one or more l3 nodes.
We will also see the new features that could be brought in the next release, which will improve routing scalability, especially for the east-west traffic.

An Overview of Cloud Auditing Support for OpenStack
A key feature of any Cloud infrastructure is to provide auditing capabilities for compliance with security, operational and business processes. In this talk we provide an overview of the recent enhancements made in OpenStack projects to support API and security auditing using the DMTF Cloud Auditing Data Federation (CADF) standard. We will describe how auditing is seamlessly enabled for Nova, Glance, Swift, Cinder, Neutron and Keystone and illustrate what is audited, where it is stored, what the records contain and how this supports compliance. We will finish by presenting some possible future directions such as extending the use of CADF beyond audit to facilitate event correlation and federation across multiple tiers.

Delivering OpenStack Clouds as a Factory

"OpenStack is not a state, it's a process." Seeing how quickly OpenStack evolves, one should  consider that setting up a cloud infrastructure is never done. The more you wait to do your updates, the more difficult these updates become. Since the whole system and its API have, by definition, been exposed to a large number of users; one cannot leave a cloud without security and maintenance updates. OpenStack deployments should therefore be conceived as a chain of continuous integration platforms that allows the operator to validate ongoing evolutions and fixes automatically, providing him with enough evidence to let his cloud be continuously deployed.

This presentation will describe how eNovance sets up such a chain for its deployments, what the advantages and challenges we encountered along the way.

Red Hat and Alcatel-Lucent: The Right Partnership to Support a Service Provider's Journey to the Cloud
Limited Capacity full

As industry leaders in networking and open source software solutions, Red Hat and Alcatel-Lucent have teamed-up to deliver a new high performing, carrier-grade NFV solution for network service providers. Alcatel-Lucent’s CloudBand NFV Platform integrates with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform to manage orchestration of the cloud network for peak performance. 

Network Functions Virtualization is the next critical step for Service Providers making the move to the Cloud. By de-coupling  the network functions/ applications as software from the underlying hardware infrastructure, this move to NFV will provide a new foundation for Service Providers to reduce OPEX  and to provide the ability to achieve unprecedented network elasticity and scalability.

This session will detail the benefits of  NFV migration for network operators, and how they will benefit by this change in architecture. We’ll discuss the engineering collaboration between our two companies to provide the right NFV platform relying on OpenStack. In addition, we will discuss the ecosystem programs that both companies have developed to accelerate the adoption of NFV based on OpenStack technologies

Initial Use Cases for OpenStack & Cinder In Your Enterprise IT Strategy

In this session, John Griffith and Rodney Peck will examine one of the strongest initial use case fits for introducing OpenStack, and specifically OpenStack Block Storage, within your enterprise IT infrastructure; self service test & development.

This session will focus on discussing the advantages of providing self-service infrastructure to test and development teams and how it can serve as a gateway to other use cases in your environment. In particular we’ll talk about the role of Block Storage (Cinder) in a test and development environment, and how features like boot from volume and cloning can greatly improve operational efficiency while also providing developers with the infrastructure services they need to remain productive (and happy).

The last portion of this presentation will be dedicated to an in-depth review of a sample reference architecture to get OpenStack, including Block Storage, up and running today in this self-service test & development use case.

The User Survey [1] provides users an opportunity to influence the community and software direction. Up until now the User Survey has been targeted at operators responsible for deploying and maintaining OpenStack powered clouds, with good reason. If you can't deploy OpenStack, you have nowhere to start. Now that there has been many successful deployments of OpenStack, both public and private, it's time for the beginning of a shift in focus of OpenStack's audience.
A new section of questions and answers in the survey are focused on the true users of OpenStack. Application developers, those developers who create applications that will run on OpenStack powered clouds, and application operators, those operators who deploy applications running on OpenStack powered clouds. We need to better understand what tools they are using, their requirements, and what's missing from our ecosystem.

Vagrant Up Your Rackspace Private Cloud
Rackspace Private Cloud, and OpenStack on its own, can be a formidable set of software to install. Rackspace Private Cloud uses Chef to deploy OpenStack, and while Chef itself has a high learning curve, its use does make deploying OpenStack easier and more scalable.

Despite this, I find a lot of installation confusion comes from how to setup the virtual machines. How many CPUs do I allocate? How much RAM do I allocate? How much storage should there be? How many NICs do I need and on what networks? Many people may give up at this point or attempt an install with incorrect virtual machine configurations which ruins their experience. However, Vagrant by Hashicorp makes it very easy to define the virtual machines and the necessary Rackspace Private Cloud installation steps all within a simple text file.
In this presentation/hands-on lab, I will be going through how I took Rackspace's Private Cloud deployment instructions and incorporated them into a Vagrantfile to make spinning up a multi-node virtual machine based Rackspace Private Cloud on your workstation as easy as typing vagrant up".

OpenStack - QA Security Code Analysis
Today's corporate security groups are not staffed to handle the specialized skills needed to perform code analysis and security testing from OpenStack. This discussion will focus on three areas: 1. Who should be responsible for testing (hint: a specialized group of ninjas; 2. Automating API and Code testing w/demo; how this translates into better code in OpenStack.
There is a paradigm shift in how security testing is being conducted by software companies. The benefits of moving security testing away from an info-security" perspective will make security testing a repeatable process that is streamlined, more efficient, and more secure in OpenStack environment.

Enhancing High Availability in Context of OpenStack
There are 4 layers of HA to consider in a cloud deployment: the application itself, the virtual machine the application runs on, and the control plane of the cloud that allows provisioning and managing resources. The OpenStack development community is largely focused on HA of OpenStack itself (i.e. the control plane). VM-level HA has some limited support in OpenStack, but it is not complete. And, while application level HA is largely considered out of scope of OpenStack, Savanna, Heat, and Trove are beginning to touch on this.
This session will focus on the current status of HA at each level, technical challenges that remain, and the research and development activities to close them.

Cisco's Application Development Transformation Journey on OpenStack Retrospective
When Cisco started envisioning the future of its application development platforms, the ability to create applications that are cloud native with elastic services and network aware application policies was a strategic innovation of the company. When the decision to build and operate a Cisco cloud service delivery platform for Collaboration, Video, and Internet of Things (IoT) application development was made, Openstack became central to our architecture and strategic to our vision as a company.
This presentation will look at the journey Cisco took to provide an application centric OpenStack platform for application development in a secure and completely open source manner. For each Openstack project, the issues, design considerations, and implementation best practices will be described. The Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) approach that greatly simplifies and enables application requirements to define the network will be detailed along with the submissions to the Openstack projects.
Lastly, the operational experiences and best practices that were learned through the Cisco policy-based operational model that enables developer friendly environments that radically simplifies, optimizes and accelerates the entire application deployment lifecycle will case studied.

Migrating Workloads from Amazon Web Services to HP Public Cloud OpenStack Environment
One of the many benefits of OpenStack is the availability of a widely-accepted, industry standard interface that enables software to be leveraged to many different cloud implementations. Non-OpenStack cloud implementations have the opposite issue: Workloads are in an environment that is proprietary and unique to a particular vendor.

In this session real world experiences garnered from moving production workloads and solutions running in the Amazon Web Services environment to the HP Public Cloud OpenStack environment will be shared. Specific topics that will be covered include:

  • The paradigm shift that occurs when using OpenStack as compared to AWS
  • Comparison of user and privilege models between the two environments; along with the resulting benefit to the organization's development and delivery processes
  • Comparison of infrastructure services and areas to consider when migrating
  • Comparison of platform services and how they can be handled in the OpenStack environment

OpenStack Python and the Holy Grail: A New Proposal for Image Portability
We've all heard it: portability, federation, interconnected. The Holy Grail of the open cloud movement is arguably compute instance portability, but it may be possible to port virtual machine images now. While open source tools exist to covert raw VM disk images, image portability may be best achieved by OpenStack providers by adopting some common bootstrapping and data transfer patterns. In this session, John Garbutt and Brian Rosmaita from Rackspace will explore what that may entail. And there will be much rejoicing.

Case Study: Best Practices Learned Along a Leading Gaming Company’s Path to Hosted OpenStack Private Cloud

With almost 1600 participating developers from more than 165 organizations and a well-developed foundation with strong governance, OpenStack has the momentum and corporate support required to become a ubiquitous cloud-computing platform. Since OpenStack’s first release in October of 2010, the core technology has improved by orders of magnitude. In short, OpenStack has become the Linux of cloud computing and it is here to stay. However, even for the most advanced IT teams, deploying OpenStack has proven difficult.

During this session Hernan Alvarez, VP of Operations at Blue Box and Andreas Stollar, Senior Architect for Big Fish Games will share the challenges, highlights and best practices learned from Big Fish Game’s adoption of a hosted private cloud environment into their infrastructure operations.  This presentation will cover:

• Deployment methodology and tooling that led to the purchasing decision of a hosted private cloud

• Considerations that went into a managed offering, and the decision factors between on-premise vs. hosted 

• Ways to create seamless on-demand scaling to meet demand

• Designing architecture  to adapt for unique and often changing technical requirements

• Effective methods for integration with existing legacy IT infrastructure

Hernan and Andreas will speak to how Big Fish is leveraging the techniques above as well as currently using their Hosted OpenStack Private Cloud to minimize their drain on IT resources while empowering over 500 worldwide developers to spend more time innovating.

Please join us for the real world discussion of production OpenStack challenges and triumphs.

Real-time Predictive Analytics and Visualization for Openstack Operations
Abstract
As Openstack matures and gets adopted, one of the potential challenges will be to run Openstack smoothly and efficiently. In order to achieve this, one way is to use operational data to improve ops. The amount of data that can be collected in an openstack deployment is quite large. It is important to extract operational insights from this data. An important step was the birth of Ceilometer which is a fantastic telemetry platform. As a first step, we show we can couple Ceilometer with a real-time stream mining platform and machine learning (using opensource components) to predict hotspots within a cluster among other patterns. We believe this approach will lead to innovations within the Openstack operations ecosystem.

Demo Theater [Cloud Multiply] IT as a Service Broker - The Next Transformation
Over two-third’s of all IT applications will undergo sweeping changes in how they are consumed. Of these, the majority will be consumed from some form of cloud (Public/Community/Virtual-private/Private). In response to this fundamental shift in consumption model, IT departments will have to re-tool themselves to behave more as service brokers procuring hardware and software as services from vendors. The question then is how does the IT department manage a myraid of providers from a seamless single pane of glass?

 In this session, you’ll learn:

The next generation IT model (ITaaSB) trend
What CIO's and VP IT's need to know to build this capability
How can a unified solution built on Openstack, help Enterpeises build and roll-out this capability in their organizations.

Demo Theater [Scalr] Controlling Cloud Infrastructure Costs with Cost Analytics
The cloud is beginning to deliver on its promise of speed and flexibility. But what about cost savings? It’s easy to spin up servers and let them go, but that can lead to infrastructure cost creep. Enterprises today need greater visibility and management, to ensure IT and DevOPs can control infrastructure and gain insight on inefficiencies and financial managers can match infrastructure spend to their predefined accounting schema and report on it.
In this presentation, we will discuss how cloud management tools can help IT track the costs of each their cloud instances and roll this up to the level of a server farm and infrastructure for tracking. IT and Finance will learn how they can maintain accountability and keep costs under control, delivering on the promise of cloud cost savings.

Technical Deep Dive: Big Data Computations Using Elastic Data Processing in OpenStack Cloud

The Sahara project (ex. Savanna), integrated project in Juno under the OpenStack Data Processing program, provides users an ability to provision and manage Hadoop clusters on OpenStack, and has seen a great deal of progress, development, and changes during the Icehouse development cycle. The focus of the project is on two primary use cases: on-demand cluster provisioning and on-demand Hadoop tasks execution (Elastic Data Processing).

This presentation takes an in-depth look at Savanna’s EDP facilities. Since Savanna’s initial release, this key feature has been hardened and expanded to support streaming MapReduce and Java workflows, operation over private Neutron networks and execution on transient clusters. We’ll start with a description of EDP’s general concepts and a definition of terms, then its current status in Savanna, supported Data Sources, Job Types, data locality and the roadmap for the Juno release cycle.

Lastly, we’ll show a live demo of EDP to bring all of these concepts together. The demo will cover job and data source definition, job execution and collection of job results.

Community Comparison: How Does the Kernel Stack up Against OpenStack
Within Open Source projects, it is often useful to get a level set" on community practises (what works and what doesn't). The purpose of this talk will be to compare and contrast the Current OpenStack community processes with those of the Linux Kernel (being one of the oldest and best established Open Source projects with one of the biggest contributor bases). The object isn't a winner takes all competition but an in depth comparison of the two project on a set of metrics to see which may be better, what may be learned (and perhaps how they could both improved). It is important to understand as well, that there are often no "right" answers. Sometimes the dynamics of a community become a matter of taste within that community and a process that works perfectly for one community may fail dismally for another.

Some of the main measures of health of an Open Source project are
  1. Ease of attraction of newcomers
  2. Utility of the project processes to drive by coders (people who are only interested in getting one bug fixed or feature accepted and then they disappear again)
  3. Core contributor variation with time (who are the core contributors, how steady are they and what's the amateur/professional mix)
However, there are also other interesting issues, like what are the barriers to contribution, like how easy is the Contributor Licence Agreement to actually agree to (here the Kernel wins because the Developer Certificate of origin is streamlined and carried within the patch itself) and how welcoming is the community (here OpenStack wins, because the Linux Kernel mailing list is notoriously hostile); how does the acceptance process contribute to the quality of the code (OpenStack has a formalised gerrit based review process and the Kernel just has mailing list based discussion of patches).

The presentation will attempt to synthesise the community and process comparisons and shed some light on what is currently working well, and what may benefit from modification (and how might it be modified).

Divide and Conquer: Resource Segregation in the OpenStack Cloud
As a cloud deployment grows both in size and in variety of workloads it is useful to be able to segregate compute resources based on factors such as physical location, networking connections, or the availability of specialized hardware. OpenStack provides a number of options for segregating compute resources in the cloud including:
  • Cells,
  • Host Aggregates,
  • Regions, and
  • Availability Zones.
The differences between each of these approaches are nuanced and often misunderstood. Additionally the capabilities available when using some of these techniques, particularly Host Aggregates and Cells, have been expanded in recent OpenStack releases.
This session will provide an indepth look into these each of these options for segregating resources in the OpenStack cloud including their pros and cons, example use cases, and performance considerations.

Experiences with High Availability and Neutron Network Nodes
Running an OpenStack cloud at scale requires a highly-available cluster of network nodes to run L3 and DHCP agents. At HP Cloud, we use Corosync and Pacemaker to manage the cluster of network nodes, and to shut down specific agents in the event of node failure, as well as migrating and rescheduling the routers and networks across the remaining nodes.

In the process of doing this, we have discovered some interesting quirks about Neutron in a HA configuration.

In this presentation I will discuss the Neutron high availability architecture as deployed by HP Cloud. Specifically discussing the integration between Pacemaker, the agents, and the Neutron database. I will also talk about issues we have encountered with the HA solution, such as failover time, DHCP network renumbering and DNS failures, Pacemaker exuberance, namespace and router load, and lost tokens.

Training Your Cluster to Take Care of Itself and Let You Eat Dinner In Peace
Operating a large OpenStack installation can be a daunting task, but over time you'll find that the key metrics, problems, and warning signs (that you're probably spending your own personal time and energy watching for) aren't at all difficult to train a machine to do--especially if you want such a machine to become more accurate and more reliable over time in the flags it raises.
During the Hong Kong summit, we examined how a flow of logs, telemetry, and other performance data can be piped through various systems, and some possible open-source projects that can help.
In this session, we will explore in much more technical detail a setup in which logs and metrics become centralized, combined along the same timeline and presented intuitively for simpler visual inspection, as well as how to employ machine learning techniques to train your log collectors or other monitoring machines to look for patterns in the data. Having such tools in your environment will help prevent a barrage of alerts with no credence, help identify early warning signs and predict potential problems before they cause a degradation in performance, or--even worse--a service outage that interrupts your TV dinner.
But not only can these patterns be used for simple alerting as is often the traditional case; they are better used to take proactive, predefined actions, watch for recoveries, and send alerts only as needed.
Previous experience with machine learning is not necessary, but you should be slightly familiar with the inherent challenges in monitoring, alerting, and analysis persistent event flows from distributed systems.

How Community Can Make OpenStack Customer Centric

One great benefit of implementing OpenStack is the ability – at least in principle – to influence the project’s pace, priorities and roadmap. Having a seat at the table helps insure that OpenStack evolves in response to the real operational needs and economics of your business. At least, that’s the theory. In practice, this works best for a relatively small fraction of potential customers: mostly those with deep resources, and/or those whose commitment to OpenStack is clear-cut and strategically imperative, or who work for a technology supplier. But what about customers that just want to operate the cloud? What about, in other words, real customers?

Today, the mass of such organizations is not directly involved in OpenStack development. Their IT and software development leads are not being welcomed. Their opinions and needs are not being solicited. Their valuable feedback is not being heard. What’s worst is this: they know it. Without concrete, visible steps to change how we build it, they will not come.

As a major OpenStack vendor, Mirantis has developed a set of best practices for welcoming and working with end-user customers, extending to them more of the benefits of OpenStack community participation and conversely, obtaining from them guidance and actionable market intelligence. By discussing these best-practices, we hope to:

• Help the OpenStack community reach out more consistently, and with better results, to real end-user customers.
• Develop beneficial (but also non-burdensome) roles in the community, enabling and shaping participation by a range of parties whose main motive is to use, rather than build the product.
• Explore structural tweaks that will enable better exchange of information between ‘style: end-user’ participants and members of the community who participate in more fundamental ways.

With a better, common understanding of the needs of primary end-user customers for OpenStack and related products, we can broaden adoption and improve OpenStack’s technology base, from increased participation for all and access to more and better ideas from the ‘real world’.

The Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC) will be a public cloud based on a new model that allows many companies and institutions to participate in its implementation and operation. MOC is bringing multiple vendors together within a single infrastructure, hence fostering collaboration and interoperability amongst them. Several industry partners have joined the effort and been instrumental in the initial implementation of MOC.

The goal for MOC is to foster interoperability and innovation amongst insterested parties and the opportunity to explore new computing models.

  • This session will provide an overview of the architecture and it's evolution
    • Blueprint to build a multi-vendor cloud infrastrucutre
    • Architecture decisions and guidance
    • Considerations for scale, operations and upgrades
  • Lessons learned from the initial deployment:
    • Issues with shared infrastructure and scope of trust
    • Solution for integrating existing hardware provisioning

We will also cover use cases for applications deployed on the MOC cloud, ranging from Big Data analytics, PaaS and others

With the participation of several key Boston universities such as Harvard, Boston University, MIT and North Eastern, UMass and other parthers MOC will evolve into a large scale open cloud infrastructure.

Application Software Configuration Using Heat
Until the Icehouse release of Heat, configuring software on orchestrated compute resources has required a cumbersome combination of declarative configuration, shell scripts and wait conditions. Heat now has a flexible mechanism to configure software throughout the life-cycle of compute resources. It is also now possible to integrate with software configuration tools such as Puppet or Chef, allowing configuration to be represented in a number of different ways.
In this session you will learn a number of different approaches to configuring software using Heat such as cloud-init, shell scripts, Puppet and golden images. You will also learn how to add support for other configuration management tools.

Building a Contribution Culture @Cloudwatt
As a European Sovereign Public Cloud Provider, it is required for Cloudwatt to develop its in-house mastery & expertise of the underlying FLOSS components it is deploying, OpenStack & Ceph being the key ones.

In order to achieve that, Cloudwatt has staffed dedicated contribution teams. The catch is that, in a world where existing senior cotributors living in the Paris area are not found easily, and even more a year and a half ago than today, Cloudwatt had no choice but to grow them in-house, with the help of its partner eNovance.


Growing from zero employees to 100 in the past 18 month Cloudwatt shaped his software engineering team for Free Software contribution from day one. The Upstream University course is part of the training program proposed to every engineer. It is only one of the many challenges to build a team able to reconcile the agenda of the company with the roadmap of the OpenStack project.

We’ll describe why we went this way, where we are today, challenges we faced, and the various benefits we got from this journey as a company.

If you’re a developer, you’ll get ammunition to convince your boss to let you contribute. If you’re in a IT leadership role, you’ll get a few reason on why you should let your people do it, and how you could do that.

Increasing Read Scalability in Openstack Using Database Replication
A key scalability challenge for almost all OpenStack components is a reliance on a single authoritative store of service related information. While not always the case, generally this comes in the form of a MySQL or PostgreSQL database. As production deployments become larger and Openstack continues to move into the enterprise space we will need to be able to scale this central store. A quick familiar method of decentralizing traditional relational databases has been through use of replications slaves. In this presentation I will explain how support for replication slaves works in Openstack and what currently uses it. I will also go over some production experience as Bluehost has been using replication slaves for over a year.

OpenStack Scale-out High Availability: Scaling to 1,000+ Servers without Neutron

OpenStack networking can be challenging and many of the biggest deployments such as HP, ANL, and CERN use their own customized network drivers. That’s because default OpenStack networking models don’t make sense in a modern datacenter. We designed our own layer-3 (L3) nova-network plugins to Open Cloud System (OCS) 3.0 that replaced the default networking model in an extensible and best practices manner. By removing nova-network from the data path, we delivered a fully scale out networking model that can support 100s of racks in a single cloud with incredibly high performance. This is similar to the approach taken HP, CERN, and others.
We’ll look in detail at the network architecture, examine our “Layer-3” (L3) plugin, discuss the challenges in writing a custom network driver, and talk about how we solved the NAT and DHCP challenges.

Focusing on Developer Experience and Announcing developer.openstack.org
This talk will dive into what Developer Experience is and, more importantly, why it's critical for OpenStack's future.

Application developers, those developers who create applications that will run on OpenStack powered clouds, have been an underserved community in our ecosystem to date. The domains of User Experience and Developer Experience have not recieved as much focus within OpenStack as they should.

We'll look at positive steps already in progress to address these challenges but more importantly where we need to go as a project and ecosystem to make applicatin developers and end users' lives easier. We need to lower the barriers for developers to write applications on OpenStack powered clouds. A big part of that is giving them a destination where they can find the resources they need to get started quickly, get the support they need, and dive deep when necessary.

developer.openstack.org
 is that destination.

Learn about the resources available to developers now, what will be coming in the future, and give your feedback on what's missing.

Extend Swift by Developing Your Own Middlewares

OpenStack Swift already covers a broad range of use cases and fulfill requirements by operators and users - be it different authentication backends, support for 3rd party APIs or using different storage backends.

However, in some cases you might need a functionality that is currently missing in Swift. Swift uses wsgi middlewares for basic and optional functionalities which makes it easy to extend and make it fit to your needs.

This talk will give an overview on how Python wsgi middlewares are working in general and how to use them. After that a summary of already existing 3rd party middlewares for Swift will be given and we will have a look how to write your own Swift proxy server middlewares and tests to fulfill your needs. At the end you should be able to start writing your own middlewares based on the shown examples.

Turning the Heat Up on DevOps: Providing a Web-based Editing Experience Around Heat Templates

We’ll present a web-based editing experience around Heat Orchestration Templates. We have created a unified editing experience leveraging diagram and text-based metaphors into one seamless flow. We have also extended the Heat engine to support full-stack deployment by integrating application deployment capabilities from IBM UrbanCode Deploy. We’ll demonstrate creating ready to deploy HOT documents which capture Compute, Network, and Storage resources as well as our own extensions around software configuration and deployment resources.

We’ll describe how our solution supports three characteristics for Software Defined Environments:

- Organic: Support creating and updating environments in place as their purpose or architecture changes over time.
- Version-aware: We’ll show incorporating native scm solutions like git as part of the web-based interface to version and update templates across multiple environments.
- Fullstack Engineering: We’ll describe templates which capture cloud resources and software resources as part of a unified template which can then provision cloud resources and deploy software in one action.

Our extensions to Heat will be described along with our experiences in extending the engine as a vendor.

Network Visibility for Efficient Openstack Operations
Since Networking is the glue that connects apps with infrastructure, it is critical to have network visibility. For example, operators would like to know whether the overlay or the underlay is at fault, among other things or where are the hotspots? As a first step, we explore how we can obtain the best network visibility and the challenges that lie in front, going forward. In order to solve the problems, we present strategies to 1) extract data from underlay (SDN controller) and the overlay (Neutron) system 2) show data mining and machine learning techniques to extract insights 3) interesting applications of the insights. We introduce the concept of network distances, a simple abstraction to expose the network metrics between any two entities of a network service. In particular we show how we can implement network distance within a SDN controller like Opendaylight.

Building an OpenStack Community in your Neighborhood
Colorado is one of the hubs" of OpenStack development, though it is not as natural as it is in Austin, San Antonio, or the greater Bay area. We are fairly distributed and we've had to do a little work to create a presence.

By using personal connections, IRC, and Meetups, we've built a community and so can you. This session will talk about what "community" means in a region where there is no natural centerpoint. OpenStack expertise and interest is sprinkled broadly throughout the Denver Metro, Boulder, and Northern Colorado area and we do some things to make it feel like a tighter community. We'll share those ideas with you.

The Battle of the Distros – Which One is Better for My Cloud?
OpenStack is a powerful open-source cloud management system. Multiple services, databases, configuration files, messaging queues and runtime agents are needed to realize its full potential. This is obviously not easy to deploy in production and, even more important, to monitor and troubleshoot potential issues.
OpenStack distributions provide a solution to all the above-mentioned problems. But which one is the best for your cloud?
In this session we will explore the most popular OpenStack distributions on the market. Let’s talk openly about pros and cons for each, with clear fair parameters for all of them. OpenStack users attending this session will get a better idea of all available distributions. They will also understand the important questions to ask when they look for a distribution, and what is beneficial for all users. They will evaluate whether it is possible to independently support an OpenStack deployment , without any company behind their data centers, and if it is how much investment is needed.

Saved By the Bell: Alerting, Logging, and Monitoring OpenStack with Open Source Tools

If you are relatively new to OpenStack you will have discovered that it is a system that is designed to provide a very robust Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. Specifically this service is the abstraction, management, automation and orchestration of underlying infrastructure components – CPU, memory, disk and network.
You may have also noticed that it is (seemingly) lacking in other infrastructure support services, e.g. monitoring, backups, alerting, notifications, etc. It is intentionally myopic in this sense – dedicated to providing core IaaS functions without introducing complexity, bloat, points of failure and other risks for functions that are otherwise not germane to its primary purpose.
Its strength however lies in its design and development philosophy – a very open architecture, easy access to data and a powerful API. This allows for the dedicated IaaS functions to operate as efficiently as possible but also exposes the components required to provide other, typically “higher level”, infrastructure and support services. These data points and functions are often consumed by processes, applications and services outside of OpenStack, e.g. Ceilometer data pulled into an external chargeback or auditing tool, Nova or Cinder APIs polled to provide capacity or asset data to an enterprise CMDB, and so on.
These higher level" infrastructure support services are still required for a production environment however. Not every environment however has tier 1, enterprise class systems, with easy or readily available OpenStack integration so how do we provide these functions for our environment using standard open source tools?
In this session we are going to explore techniques to provide a basic level of infrastructure management services, e.g. monitoring, alerting, logging, reporting, etc., for your OpenStack environment using common and freely available open source tools, e.g. monit, collectd, syslog, etc.

Getting from Enterprise Ready to Enterprise Bliss - Why OpenStack and IBM is a Match Made in Cloud Heaven
As a founding sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, IBM's approach to OpenStack is simple - deliver high value contributions to OpenStack to make it THE best in class IaaS open source offering and then build IBM offerings on this foundation to deliver exception enterprise value to our clients. In this kickoff presentation for the IBM Track, Todd Moore, Director of Open Technologies and Partnerships, provides the answer to one of the most frequently asked questions - how is IBM adopting OpenStack across IBM Cloud Offerings? This presentation details the imperative of an Open Cloud Architecture to ensure interoperability and to avoid vendor lock in and sets the context for the IBM track sessions which provide a deeper dive on some of the IBM offerings shipping with OpenStack today including SmartCloud Orchestrator and SoftLayer.

Unified Management of OpenStack and Traditional Virtualization Infrastructure with Open Source

In this session, we will present the state of the art in open source cloud management and cloud broker platforms. You’ll learn how to manage the monitoring and deployment of your applications across OpenStack, Amazon Web Services, VMware vSphere, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, oVirt, and more—all from a single, unified management interface.

Whether as a public cloud or as private Infrastructure-as-a-Service, OpenStack is probably not the only cloud or virtualization platform you are using. If you’re managing applications across heterogeneous virtualization, IaaS, and public cloud services, things can get complicated in a hurry.

By open sourcing the CloudForms Management Engine, we are creating a level playing field where people can participate to extend and integrate tightly with an open, vibrant, community-developed cloud management platform. Dave will present the project, its community, and how you can get involved.

Performance Measurements on Swift / Do-it-yourself Swift Benchmarking Made Simple

Last year at HP we undertook a programme of performance measurements on Swift running on a variety of hardware.  We measured the CPU burden and I/O rates of individual Swift processes under a variety of conditions, ranging from idle (i.e. no external PUT/GET activity) to very high transaction loads.  We used the getput tool to impose loads on our test hardware, and we concentrated our measurements on PUTs of small objects of 1KB and 4KB.  We used collectl to gather performance data.  Some of the hardware that we tested is currently in use in our production public Swift, and some of it is hardware that we plan to put into production.  We were particularly interested in optimising the balance between CPU, RAM and I/O for component Swift services (proxy, object and container/account).  In this presentation we will summarise the performance measurements themselves, outline our conclusions and show that with the appropriate hardware you can realise significant improvements in Swift transaction rates.

Lessons Learned Migrating Fortune 500 Products to OpenStack
Over the last 5 years, of my 30-year career, I have worked extensively with US Fortune 500 companies on their journey to cloud. This talk introduces a Cloud Maturity Model based on my combined experiences with those companies and product teams.
Across all of these initiatives, there was a certain pattern emerging that could be defined as a “Cloud Maturity Model” and applied to real world products it would provide roadmap guidance in three dimensions: Cloud Friendly / Cloud Ready / Cloud Mature applications. Each dimension, or maturity level, describes common business activities, technology activities and operational activities to be considered on the way to a fully cloud mature product. Applying the model allows the product team to quickly move to using OpenStack based clouds, without having all the benefits of a modern, agile, multi-tenant elastic application on day one.
Audience: The content in this session is based on working with customers, sales, marketing, product managers, developers and operations teams in moving existing and new products to OpenStack based platforms such as HP’s public cloud.
Agenda:
- The Business Challenge – Moving products from legacy to cloud
- The Cloud Maturity model – Cloud friendly/ready/mature
- The Compliance model – Unified Control Framework and SSAE-16’s
- The DevOps model – The tale of two cows and one kitten
The presentation is user focused and intended to provide examples and practical guidance in addressing common challenges and solutions for those throughout the session

Linux Containers - NextGen Virtualization for Cloud
Want VM agility with near bare metal performance? How about [milli]second provision/stop/start/restart times? Looking to achieve greater VM density on your hardware assets, or provision applications without worry of dependency hell? Look no further than nextgen virtualization with Linux Containers.

In this session we’ll look at Linux Container basics; tooling/commoditization, throttling/monitoring, images, security and why containers are poised as “the next VM” in our modern Cloud era. We’ll also discuss results exemplifying containers; run at near bare metal speeds, provide greater density potential, allow faster provisioning times, have smaller footprints and are more applicable to “as a Service” realizations. Finally we’ll look at some density/performance results from a Cloudy perspective using the OpenStack docker virt driver.

Extending TripleO for OpenStack Infrastructure Management
Operational awareness and value for cloud operators has largely been ignored by the OpenStack community. Today with the maturity of TripleO and inclusion of Tuskar, we can now begin to think about TripleO's use as a vehicle for OpenStack infrastructure management.

The question now is How do we extend TripleO with additional value?".

Within this context, there are several areas of integration which can be explored. These include an operator dashboard, infrastructure instrumentation agents, bare metal drivers and other supporting services. Hardware and software vendors can gain insight into what integration looks like from a product point of view.

In this session, we will explore:
- Why TripleO works for infrastructure management
- TripleO management integration points
- What TripleO means for hardware/software vendors
- Early work in this area

Deploying OpenStack in a Multi-Hypervisor Enterprise Environment

Deploying OpenStack in a Multi-Hypervisor Enterprise Environment
Most OpenStack distributions are centered around a single hypervisor, KVM. Enterprises, on the other hand, have massive investments in a variety of different virtualization platforms. Building a private cloud is a massive change in and of itself, and most large enterprises are reluctant to lose their existing competence with their chosen hypervisor at the same time.
Learn how to integrate VMware, Hyper-V, and Xen, along with KVM into a single, heterogeneous OpenStack environment. We will also discuss various ways that a multi-hypervisor setup can help an enterprise maximize cost efficiencies, leverage existing skill sets, and expand the reach of automated services to more groups in a large enterprise.

Open Cloud System 3.0: OpenStack Architected Like AWS

Making OpenStack real for customer deployments takes a lot of work. It’s much more than layering in an installer and custom documentation. At Cloudscaling, we spend a great deal of effort on operationalizing OpenStack for customers and ensuring it’s compatible with leading public clouds. In this session, we’ll clarify the areas we focus and walk through the design decisions behind the choices. While we use 100% stock community OpenStack, OCS 3.0 doesn’t look and feel like any other version of OpenStack. It has key distinguishing characteristics such as:


  • a scalable and highly available control plane
  • an ultra high performance and high reliability network model
  • additional compatibility with the major public clouds such as Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Engine, and
  • a modern fabric for DevOps style infrastructure and application deployment.

Most everyone agrees that data is quite important, so where it gets stored is also important.  Storage though has been something for the infrastructure experts to worry about, but new architectures are making storage much more interesting for developers at the infrastructure level as well as the application level.  This presentation will discuss how open software-defined technologies like Swift, Ceph, and Gluster have driven new requirements in storage hardware architectures.  Come participate in the session and discuss the optimization opportunities in distributing application and storage services in an open architecture that extends all of the way to CPU and memory resources residing on the storage media itself.

Hitchhiker's Guide to DevOps Tools on OpenStack
Application deployment is hard work. Private cloud builders have in common enough scale and complexity to justify the need for API abstraction of their compute, storage and network needs. The applications deployed on these clouds are normally extremely complex. Building a cloud without rehosting application assets to it yeilds an unrealized investment. In this presentation, Lee Thompson will sample freely available open source tools which dramatically improve you ability to deploy applications onto Open Stack. Come hear the latest from tools like Barclamp, Chef, Forman, Juju, Puppet, Rundeck and others and start realizing your cloud investment.

Best Organizational Practices for Cloud Adoption
As an organization adopts cloud, the traditional relationship between IT and developers is disrupted: IT loosens its control of infrastructure delivery, and developers are now in charge of provisioning, managing, and decommissioning resources.
But how does the organization evolve to make it acceptable for IT to relinquish one of its key responsibilities? IT and developers must rethink how they work together. In fact, they must transition from a relationship that’s built on control and oversight, to one that’s built on trust and accountability.

On this panel, experts who have driven cloud adoption at their companies or helped their customers do so will seek to answer the following questions:
  • Why is DevOps, the sometimes uncomfortable union of IT and Devs, critical to success with cloud?
  • What are the social challenges an organization should expect to face when adopting a DevOps culture? When adopting cloud?
  • What about IT’s other responsibilities, such as security and cost control? Does IT carry on with its mission, or does it alter it? How?

WhatTheStack? A Tool Based on Tempest to Verify your Deployments
OpenStack service interoperability is becoming a major requirement for developers and users of public clouds. With more and more OpenStack-based deployments available to the public it is getting harder and harder to choose a vendor that ensures API interoperability. To make things worse, you might want to have some external testing for verification.
Luckily there is already an existing project that executes tests against the OpenStack API: Tempest. Tempest is used daily to test thousands of deployments, namely devstack in Zuul. It is used to verify patches for API interoperability and to check if a new patch doesn’t break existing functionality.
Experienced operators can configure and use Tempest to test not only a local devstack environment but their own deployment; however asking users to configure and test several OpenStack deployments is a tedious task.
We built a tool around OpenStack Tempest to simplify this process for users, developers, operators and distribution builders. whatthestack discovers common settings required to create a configuration for Tempest and executes Tempest tests against a given OpenStack deployment. A subset of Tempest tests is executed to verify common API interoperability; these tests do not require an administrator account and therefore are executable by regular users.

This session will explain in more details the objectives of whatthestack, as well as demonstrate it’s use. It will end with a 2 way forum to gather idea and potential feedback that we will use for future directions of the tool.

EvolutionStack at USDA - Building a Bazaar in the Cathedral
In the beginning…
The USDA National Information Technology Center traces its lineage back to 1957 with the mission of reducing IT costs by pooling resources of multiple USDA agencies.
Our existing virtual hosting environment wasn’t designed to be a Cloud. It was built in continuance of our traditional mission – share stuff to keep computing (hosting) costs down. On top of that, we built in everything that govt customers are required to do; layers of security, compliance, backups, DR, etc.
Then our customers started asking about this Cloud thing. They were seeing their private industry peers using fast, agile, and cheap hosting services to change their IT processes; they failed-fast, iterated quickly, and spent less to do it than they could even in their own relatively new virtualized hosting environments. Our customers wanted to use the same methodologies to accomplish their public sector missions.
Enter OpenStack!
HopeStack
  • Hallway convos around this new OpenStack thing, realization that this could be just what NITC needs to offer real cloud services. Zach believes!
  • Zach wagers his parking space for 5 minutes with NITC’s top guy to talk OpenStack.
  • A team is selected evaluate Zach’s ideas. Leadership’s vision is aligned, as evidenced by the unlimited access to personnel for the team.
  • Excitement over the idea of OpenStack and what it means for hosting centers like NITC.
AngryStack
  • We started looking into what all could be done w/ OpenStack, and what our wants/needs were for our prospective cloud customers.
  • Feature Greed sets it! We over-ran the docs pretty badly.
  • But we kept at it. Late nights, re-installs, 500 ways not to build a cloud discovered.
  • Stayed about 2 days behind Nicira NVP (now VMware NSX) guys during our Quantum build.
    The Cathedral is completely freaked out.
AwesomeStack
  • Main feature collection working – VMs being deployed form Horizon. Much rejoicing.
  • Demo delivered to exec leadership – overwhelmingly positive reception.
  • Direction from leaders to build the real deal.
  • Beers
SolutionStack
  • We needed stability and sustainability, and we couldn’t hire like RackSpace. So we looked around for some vendors that seemed to understand our vision.
  • In our search we arrived at VMware NSX for our network
  • We were bowled-over by Piston's approach to provisioning and operational philosophy,
  • And Silicon Mechanics’ approach to hardware lifecycle was a perfect fit with Piston.
  • Now we had to figure out how to get them all together.
  • So we brought them out to Kansas City for some BBQ from a gas station

Red Hat uses OpenStack Swift as the object storage interface to GlusterFS. Instead of reimplementing the Swift API, Red Hat is participating in the OpenStack Swift community to ensure that GlusterFS can take full advantage of the latest Swift features. This is absolutely the right way to pair Swift with another storage system: use the existing functionality in Swift and contribute back to community where additional functionality is needed. This talk from their respective project leads will show how Swift and GlusterFS work together to take advantage of the best each system has to offer.

A Practical Approach to Deploying a Highly Available and Optimally Performing OpenStack
As we managed internal and external OpenStack deployments in IBM Labs we experimented with various architectures and approaches that improved OpenStack’s availability and performance. In this session we will discuss our use of the following technologies that helped us optimize our environments:
  • MySQL Clustering
    • Galera (Active/Active)
    • Corosync & Pacemaker (Active/Standby)
  • HAProxy and KeepAlive
  • RabbitMQ Clusters
Using practical examples, we will show how we scaled out OpenStack Services (Nova, Horizon, Keystone, Glance, Cinder, etc.) and some of the challenges we ran into along the way.

In addition we will also describe a few scenarios in which we have orchestrated highly available OpenStack deployments using Heat and Chef.

Finally we will demonstrate failover and availability of the OpenStack services in an actual production cloud environment.

StackSync: A Dropbox-like Personal Cloud for OpenStack Swift
StackSync is a Dropbox-like open source synchronization tool that runs on top of OpenStack Swift. StackSync is specially designed to take care of organizations’ real needs with features like scalability, openness, security and the typical ease of use offered by personal clouds.

The StackSync framework is compounded by three main components: a synchronization server, OpenStack Swift, and desktop & mobile clients. While synchronization servers are in charge of processing metadata and provide the logic, OpenStack Swift is focused on storing the raw chunked data. Users are able to keep their files synced by using the StackSync clients available for the main desktop and mobile operating systems.
StackSync is based on an advanced synchronization technology, similar to Dropbox, with data optimizations (chunking, compression and push mechanisms) that allows it to scale to thousands of users with an efficient use of cloud resources. It also provides data-sharing mechanisms to groups of users.

A RESTful API has been built as a Swift module living at the proxies to allow the StackSync mobile apps and other third-party apps to interact with the available resources.

The separation between data and metadata allows StackSync to be deployed in different configurations depending on the needs. Using the private configuration, organizations can deploy it on-premise, as both OpenStack Swift and StackSync Server run on their facilities. The public configuration may be suitable for Cloud providers willing to offer a public synchronization service to their customers. Whereas the Hybrid configuration allows organizations to keep their metadata on-premise while storing the raw data at a public Cloud provider, retaining control over their information.

Finally, as an open-source project, StackSync welcomes and encourages any kind of collaboration from the community.

As cloud data center operators adopt automatically provisioned, multi-tenant data center architectures, it is critically important that they also deliver seamless integration of application networking services with the other data center infrastructure to ensure appropriate service-level agreements (SLAs) and compliance. In order to effectively integrate advanced application networking services (L4-L7 services) into cloud platforms, a support for automated service provisioning of virtualized services per tenant is needed. Dynamic service chaining is a critical component that delivers this automation enabling a compilation of networking resources and associated application networking services. The catalogue thus created is the foundation of an on-demand service model.
 
A10 Networks® provides integration with OpenStack to deliver the critical components needed for an on-demand L4-L7 services provisioning, and for improved application availability, acceleration and security. In this session we will cover how A10 Networks plug-in module integrates with the OpenStack Neutron to deliver the essential L4-L7 network application services for homogenous cloud provisioning and management solution.

When Network Meets Apps

Recent advancements in OpenStack capabilities have made the cloud better tuned to enterprise needs by introducing much more flexible network designs and networking services, with the tradeoff of making the cloud more complex.

In this session we will describe how we can leverage the power of the new networking advancement without exposing the complexity to the end user. We will present alternative approaches and their tradeoffs for automating the deployment of a typical n-tier enterprise application that include multi-tenant environment, separate network for admin and applications, cross region network, attach a floating IP, setup security groups etc. all through a combination of Heat, TOSCA, Chef, Puppet, and more.

Preparing to Deploy a Private Cloud
We have a lot of conversations with customers who are preparing to deploy private clouds. All too frequently, the point at which these potential customers start to engage vendors comes after they've set their own expectations around functionality, integration, and compliance. In this talk, we will dive into three common pitfalls that I wish we could have discussed with every single one of our customers before that first meeting.

The Future of Containers in Linux and OpenStack
Containers in the Cloud has been receiving a lot of attention recently. If you look at the available containers technology (OpenVZ, ZeroVM, Docker, LXC, OpenShift, lmctfy ...) You'd think that there'd been even more proliferation and competition in the Linux containers space than in hypervisors with Xen and KVM. However, the reality is somewhat different. Thanks to a massive collaborative between most of the containers players on the upstream kernel, the underlying technology used to create containers that run on Linux is essentially the same. The differences lie in the ways containers are created and managed from the point of view of which pieces of the in-kernel container technology they make use of. This talk will survey the current state of container technology in Linux, what the control plane differences are between all the competing technologies, and how we might begin to standardise container technology and its uses withing OpenStack and beyond going forwards.

Making Test-Driven Development [Somewhat] Bearable on OpenStack

While some developers may find it silly to create tests they know will immediately fail, this is actually the first step of test-driven development. Test-driven development not only results in better code, it also reduces those late night surprises when it comes to deploying the software. All developers know that they should adopt test-driven development practices, so why are so few actually doing it? The short answer is that it sucks writing tests. The goal of this talk is to demonstrate some of the tools that make test-driven development [somewhat] bearable on OpenStack environments. In this talk, join Hart Hoover as he:

  • Provides tools needed to perform test-driven development with Chef
  • Explains the roles of tools like ChefSpec, Test Kitchen, RuboCop, Foodcritic, Berkshelf, and how they work together holistically
  • Demonstrates a test-driven development on an OpenStack environment using all of the aforementioned tools
  • Understand how and why tests pass or fail, and how to analyze the output of those tests and correct failures
  • Shows how you can take advantage of these tools currently on GitHub

When is this DevOps Unicorn Going to Sprout Wings and Fly Me Away to Cloud Nirvana?

We have been following DevOps for many years and it always seems awesome. Who wouldn't want to deliver more software more often? Also, that 2009 presentation at Velocity with Spock and Kirk was awesome. Sadly, based on how little we, as analysts, see it in practice, it still seems like something of a unicorn. Interestingly, this has been changing rapidly. This presentation will present 451's freshest analysis of where the DevOps market is in maturity, including M&A, early market-sizing, a landscape overview and quantitative market studies - along with plenty of silly, but nonetheless helpful qualitative hand-waving. Our gut instinct is that DevOps is following a pattern very similar to Agile Development and open source, which are two cycles we can use to think about DevOps. There are some early best practices and cases to go over, but very few - part of what we hope to suss out with this talk are more stories fromt he field. The unicorn seems close to sprouting wings.
For the OpenStack community, tracking DevOps is important as one of our major theories is that developers are driving a massive amount of cloud demand and build-out.

Towards a Cloud Migration and Automation Framework for OpenStack
Title: Towards a cloud migration and automation framework for OpenStack
Authors: Aditya Thatte, Shriram Natarajan

Abstract: Enterprises today are adopting hybrid environments to manage, handle capacity, and migrate their workloads across private and public cloud environments. In this session, we propose an integrated cloud workload management, migration and automation framework for OpenStack. In this context, we present an approach to migrate workloads (not live migration) running on OpenStack (KVM & ESX) to target cloud environments (both public and private) using well-defined migration templates and a ‘push-button’ method. The templates can also be configured at design-time to perform deployments, configuration and automation on target cloud environments, apriori to scheduling the migration. In this discussion we would see how the approach helps in migrating workloads from Openstack to Non-Openstack cloud environments and vice-versa with high levels of automation and virtually no human interaction. We will also show the ability to manage workloads on premise and on public cloud environments through a single unified interface.

OpenStack: Where Continuous Delivery and Distros Collide
Like many open-source projects, OpenStack uses a time-based release model. Feature development happens in a flurry of activity in the first part of each release cycle and then we taper, allowing enough time for many eyes to make shallow bugs" and for us to gain enough confidence in the quality of our release candidates. Even after a release, we continue to maintain a stable branch for issues found and fixed post-release.

Linux distros apply a similar model when they bring together the releases of many open-source projects into a coherent, usable and stable product. OpenStack's predictable release schedule, the tapering, the stabilization and the post-release maintenance are all essential to the needs of distros and, in turn, the users of those distros.

Unusually, OpenStack also explicitly caters to another type of users - what we call "trunk chasers". Public cloud providers like HP and Rackspace invest significantly in a continuous delivery pipeline so that they can keep pace with OpenStack development, deploy regularly, give timely feedback upstream and minimize the risk associated with each incremental update. In these days of agile development, DevOps and continuous delivery, the benefits of such a model are now clear.

As such, OpenStack is an important case study for how recent thinking around continuous delivery is influencing open-source projects. Many questions remain unanswered, however. Are we going to continue to see projects like OpenStack see themselves as catering to two radically different audiences, or is this the beginning of fundamental shift in open-source?

Mark and Monty - Openstack Technical Committee and Foundation Board members, prominent OpenStack contributors and senior engineering leaders at Red Hat and HP - have had the opportunity to look at this dilemma from several different angles. In the talk, they will delve into some of the details behind how OpenStack caters to both models. They will examine the mindset and needs of each audience. They will talk about topics such as CI, upgrades, deployment tools, reference architectures, community management, feature development, user feedback and more.

Attendees can hope to learn some more about OpenStack and some of the challenges in running an open-source project, building a distro or maintaining a public cloud. Beyond OpenStack, however, the talk should provide some more general food for thought around the agile development methodologies used by many application developers today versus the methodologies used by open-source projects today.

Will Your Cloud Be Compliant?
Architecting a standards compliant cloud can be difficult. There are emerging cloud specific security standards such as FedRAMP and CSA that should be considered in addition to existing NIST/ISO and PCI-DSS standards. OpenStack workflows and resources that exist today either fully or partially meet these common compliance requirements. We will discuss areas that need work and areas that appear to be in good shape.
The talk includes a study of PayPal’s experience in reviewing OpenStack security as relates to complying with PCI-DSS in their private cloud and existing data center environment. It dives into the many design decisions PayPal made within their environment considering whether to use physical versus logical devices, review hypervisor versus guest compliance, and whether to maintain separate management networks for PCI versus non-PCI traffic.

Congress: a System for Declaring, Auditing, and Enforcing Policy in Heterogeneous Cloud Environments

Abstractions in compute, networking, and storage are paving the way to agility and efficiency in the software-defined data center. In this highly automated environment, stakeholders require governance and assurance mechanisms that keep pace with the infrastructure. These mechanisms must be applicable across the entire infrastructure and, as such, cannot be tightly coupled with any data schema, subsystem, or vendor. An open policy framework must emerge to allow IT stakeholders to maintain business and regulatory compliance at the pace of the software-defined data center.

In this talk we describe Congress: a system for declaring, auditing, and enforcing policy in heterogeneous cloud environments. Congress includes a data model to expose policy-significant cloud component data to the policy engine. It leverages a declarative policy language that balances expressibility with enforceability. It prevents policy violations, where  possible, and corrects violations after the fact if not.

Automation, Orchestration, Confusion? Taking the Discussion Up the Stack
Once you've got your OpenStack infrastructure in place, automating and managing application deployment is your next challenge to tackle. In this panel, we'll discuss the tools, approaches and frameworks available for OpenStack based application deployment today.
Questions that we will cover in this panel include:
• What considerations apply to choosing a particular approach or toolset?
• How are specific tools able to complement each other and interoperate?
• What are the advantages/disadvantages of tools that are solely focused on OpenStack and those that support OpenStack among other platforms?
• How significant are standardisation efforts such as TOSCA? How can we practically apply them?
• Will the use of linux containers such as Docker turn the use of existing configuration management obsolete?
• Is there one tool to win them all?

Case Study: Seagate Kinetic Platform in Action
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage Platform fundamentally changes how storage devices interface with applications in the object storage world. As the creation of unstructured data continues to double every two years, the traditional paradigm of a hardware-centric, file-based storage infrastructure becomes increasingly inefficient and costly to manage and maintain for scale-out data centers. The Kinetic platform has huge implications on not only CAPEX and OPEX, but also storage density and performance through a complete disaggregation of storage from compute. Seagate's Advanced Storage team will discuss the joint work being done with in scale out storage on Swift and utilizing the Seagate Kinetic Open Storage Platform.

The Network as the Security and Policy Enforcement Point in OpenStack Environments
Security concerns remain a strong deterrent to enterprise acceptance of the cloud, especially with recent events illustrating the vulnerability of data in the cloud. As OpenStack-based clouds have been focused on providing the environment needed for elastic, on-demand multi-tenant applications, how security, isolation and policies are enforced has largely been unclear. This talk will explore the changing nature of the network as it transitions to new models more suited to the cloud with SDN, NFV and Virtual Network Infrastructure, and the inter-relationship between networking, and security and policy enforcement. It will explore why and how security and policy enforcement should be integrated into the networking design of OpenStack cloud environments.

Beyond Ceilometer Metering and Billing, Collecting Today the Data of the Future
Ceilometer is an underutilized component of OpenStack. It can be argued that it is a new component which has not matured enough, that its features are not very well known. We have another theory. We think that people are not using it because they made a conscious analysis and decided that they just don’t need it today. They can run their cloud without billing and metering, without alarms, without the newest events and audit records available. That may be right from a point of view of normal daily operations but what if we change the perception that ceilometer is just a tool for today to the fact that ceilometer is also a collection tool for the future. What if the same folks that decide they don’t need ceilometer today start seeing it as another input to their enterprise data warehouse. What if in 2, 5 and 10 years from now you can run the latest BI tools on this warehouse with the latest cognitive algorithms and you start seeing your cloud users behavior, underutilized resources as well as bottlenecks in your cloud, workload lifecycle, and policy compliance.

This presentation will show you how by just turning on ceilometer in your cloud and with a solid archiving strategy you open the door for all sorts of Big Data wonders. We will present a few patterns that could be discovered with today’s Big Data tools assuming data ceilometer can collect today. Then we will extrapolate to make some fun predictions of the patterns we could discover in the future using projected evolutions of these tools.

The Presentation format will allow for interactive discussion with the audience and will welcome other ideas on this topic.

Flexible Networking at Large Scale
High-bandwidth, high-availability server farms present OpenStack with some unique issues as their scale grows. This talk will present some techniques that can allow such installations flexibility in growth and management of their networks to large scale without a concomitant increase in complexity. These aren't solutions for everyone -- they are best suited for a private cloud, with or without a large public-facing surface.
Basic to our approach is the use of topology-based scheduling with clusters spread over multiple layer-2 domains deployed in a regular pattern. On its own this sacrifices flexibility -- IP address mobility isn't readily provided -- but we'll discuss ways of overcoming this deficit through load-balancing, intelligent scheduling, and (optionally) application design. We'll also discuss some data-center management issues (such as maintenance and upgrades) and how they are both impacted and facilitated by these methods.

Integrating OpenStack with Active Directory (Because AD != LDAP)
Go Daddy has a large Active Directory (AD) deployment that serves many purposes for our corporate and hosting infrastructure. In building our private cloud, we've leveraged AD to power Keystone's identity service, VM authentication, and security discovery and auditing. In this talk, we'll discuss exactly how we've configured OpenStack to work well with AD, other open source tools we've used to achieve our desired functionality, and the lessons we've learned along the way. Specifically, we'll cover:
  • Keystone's LDAP capabilities
    • Using LDAP for OpenStack authentication
    • Using LDAP as a store for projects and roles (and why we chose not to use this feature)
  • The quirky differences between AD and LDAP and how those can impact your Keystone configuration, including known outstanding bugs (as of Havana) related to AD integration and their workarounds
  • How we used the open source tool PowerBroker Identity Services to back VM authentication and possible alternative solutions
  • Techniques we've used to maintain and scale the relationship between OpenStack and AD
  • Using AD groups cohesively across our company's platform including: OpenStack, GitHub, CI/CD, Finance, and more

Core via Crowd Sourcing: DefCore’s Tempest in a Docker Container (“tcup”)
There is no “Core Star Chamber!” We are counting on everyone in the community to help us determine which tests should be considered “must-pass” for cloud implementations to use the OpenStack brand. To collect this information, the DefCore committee has been building a portable version of the Tempest suite that runs in a Docker container. This containerized suite can test (we say “probe”) your private or public clouds and then upload the results to the shared RefStack site for inclusion in the DefCore process. That’s why we call it TCUP: Tempest in a Container to Upload from Probe.
In this session, we’ll show how to talk about how to use TCUP, examine its workings and review the broader DefCore process.
