Running an OpenStack Cloud for Several Years and Living to Tell the Tale

Both of our speakers are devops who have been contributors to two key eNovance OpenStack platforms called "eNoCloud", since Essex and are located in Paris and Montreal Data-Centers. Along with eNoCloud, both have been driving various customer platforms. While working on these production platforms, they have faced a variety of challenges ranging from design, to build out, contribution, upgrading, recovering and of course dealing with users!

OpenStack has evolved a lot since the Essex release but the life of a devops remains a daily roller-coaster, a lot of sweat & tears with a lot of work to automate and sometimes get a little peace of mind! In order to increase 'peace in the mind' within the ops community, we would like to share our knowledge and open up a discussion with you.

In this talk, we will share our experience about being OpenStack-dedicated devops. Both RedHat and Debian setups will be presented. Our talk will cover operational pitfalls and how we have dealt or avoided them.

We will share our knowledge on our designs and how to recover from outages (Galera cluster, RabbitMQ, Neutron, etc.) or storage issues along with side effects (degraded Ceph cluster). We will also address topics related to monitoring (which key values you should monitor), which alerts you should expect (or “How I learned to stop worrying and love the alerts”) and our overall monitoring system. End users topic will also be approached, as we will present our (2) opensourced tools to allow users to backup their VM by themselves and to display a nice status board 'à la Amazon' (using our monitoring system).

Finally we will talk about the common issues we encountered in our experience with different architectures and share our tricks and tips :)

Join us to learn and share about the (thug) life of an osops!
