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

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.

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.

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 seats available

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

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.

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.
