RSVP Required: Command Presence Workshop presented by the Women of OpenStack
Limited Capacity full

RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fj7V0nLh7UBvj7I7htWLz63ygdk4vRDkU2DqB-t1TQo/edit?usp=sharing

Capacity: 30

Target audience: Technical Women who regularly attend technical meetings working groups and would like to develop and “command their presence” in high pressure meetings. 

Workshop Background 
The Command Presence Workshop (CPW) has been recognized by Anita Borg Institute and Harvard Business Review. It is intended to teach participants how to handle “senior-level high pressure meetings”. The majority of the workshop is a task-force convened to address a simulated, but very realistic crisis event. In the class, each participant assumes a role, and is given about 30minutes to prepare 1-2 slides. Once the class has prepared, the simulation begins. There is a role-play simulations. It is not uncommon to hear occasional “gasps” of disbelief from the participants. The workshop participants will thus experience rapid-fire questioning, interruption, and other situations that occur in senior-level meetings, but in a safe environment conducive to learning techniques for handling such situations.

Extending OpenStack Swift with S3 and CDMI Interfaces
Cloud application developers using the OpenStack infrastructure are demanding implementations of not just the Swift API, but also the S3 defacto and CDMI standard APIs. Each of these APIs not only offers features in common but also offers what appear to be unique and incompatible facilities. At this BoF, we’ll discuss how to: Implement a multi-API strategy simply and effectively, sensibly manage the differences between each of the APIs, map common features to each other, take advantage of each of the APIs' strengths, avoid lowest common denominator implementations

A New Network Packet Logging Mechanism for Security-group and FWaaS - The Admin and Tenant Users Will be Able to Audit Their Network Activity
This session will illustrate a new network packet logging mechanism for security-group and FWaaS, and how it benefits the admin and tenant users.

The admin and tenant users of enterprise systems need to audit their network activity or investigate the network packet tracking when they see a problem.  Neutron, however, has no such a feature today.

We are developing a new feature that enables network packet logging for security-group and FWaaS.

This session will explain:


  • How to setup and use the logging feature.

  • What information to log for auditing and trouble shooting from our experiences on our public cloud.

Building web-applications using OpenStack Swift
Swift makes an ideal storage solution for web applications that need to store large volumes of data, be it photos, videos, or any other larger type of media data. Application developers no longer need to care about
the storage and possible growth because data, metadata, and application logic can now be clearly separated. This simplifies the development process and at the same time ensures a high scalability of the whole system.

In this talk, you’ll learn about an overview of Swift itself with a focus on some very useful features inside Swift for (web) application developers. Then, you’ll learn how to make use of these features with 2 very popular web frameworks, AngularJS and Django. When you leave this session, you should have a good overview how to start your own Swift-powered applications.

OpenStack at NTT Resonant: Lessons Learned in Web Infrastructure
NTT Resonant Inc., one of NTT group company, is an operator of the "goo" Japanese web portal and a leading provider of Internet services. NTT Resonant deployed and has been operating OpenStack as its service infrastructure since October 2014 in production. The infrastructure started with 400 hypervisors and now accommodates more than 80 services and over 1700 virtual servers. It processes most of 170 Million unique users per month and 1 Billion page views per month.
We will show our knowledge based on our experience. This talk will specifically cover the following areas:

  • This shortened the timeframe to provide virtual server to service developers.

  • This improved the efficiency of development cycle by making it possible for service developers to scrap and build virtual servers by themselves.

  • How we successfully introduced OpenStack under short timeframe from planning through migrating most of services from existing infrastructure.

  • How we designed our system using Nova, Glance, Swift, Keystone, Horizon and Neutron.

  • Which components we decided to integrate with OpenStack and not to integrate. OpenStack flexibly allows us to separately use appliances such as load balancer and firewall.

Sharing How to Deploy Multi-hypervisor Environments and Issues.
One of benefits of OpenStack is that various systems can be built by combining each component, such server, storage and network, and tuning the parameters.

Thanks to it, a system corresponding to wide range of workloads can be deployed with a multi-hypervisor configuration, mixing VM and baremetal.

But, the actual usecases are rarely in public, and the know-how to deploy the system like tuning parameters is not enough.
Also, even though users in Enterprise desire to realize a high availability system failing over gracefully, some issues are remaining and we need to solve them.

Based on my actual experience, this session introduces requirements from users for multi-hypervisor system capable of the high availability, the know-how to deploy it, and issues to be solved.
These are examples of topics:

- Configuration for Nova and Neutron in a configuration mixing VM and Baremetal.
- Configuration for Cinder multi backend
- Graceful failover in case of hardware/software failure

OVN: Feature Complete and Ready to Test
OVN is a new network virtualization project that brings virtual networking to the Open vSwitch user community.  OVN includes logical switches and routers, security groups, and L2/L3/L4 ACLs, implemented on top of a tunnel-based overlay network.  For physical-logical network integration, OVN implements software gateways, as well as supports hardware gateways from a variety of vendors.

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

In this presentation, we will provide an update on OVN's progress and provide a demo.  The demo will show an OpenStack-driven OVN deployment connecting containers and hypervisors.  We will demonstrate newly added features such as security groups and logical L3.  We will also discuss how users can start using OVN in their own deployments.

Building a Scalable Federated Hybrid Cloud
Amazon Web Services has had regions across the globe and Availability Zones (AZ) as standard offering for years. The tiering and choice of locations is best practice that OpenStack architects should embrace as they build a blueprint for geo-distributed OpenStack clouds. The notion of different regions and AZ allows smaller “blast zones” in the event of outages plus enables use cases such as active/standby clouds, tenant data replication and new tiered application architectures. All of these use cases are extremely attractive but if not undertaken correctly, a geo-distributed OpenStack endeavour can be unpredictable, costly and complex.

The cornerstone to a winning Geo-Distributed OpenStack Clouds architecture is the networking layer.  While there are existing network architectures that leverage existing routing protocols and tunnelling mechanisms, OpenStack offers an opportunity to rethink and implement a lightweight mechanism based on a radically simpler software based implementation.

In this session, learn how PLUMgrid is leveraging existing OpenStack compatible technologies and extending it to support a geo-distributed OpenStack cloud architecture. We will delve into technical implementation, physical infrastructure considerations and use case examples.

Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) Drives and Swift Object Storage
Shingled magnetic recording (SMR) drives have the potential to significantly reduce storage costs. However, they have very different characteristics than standard drives. In this talk we will give background information on SMR drives and talk about performance of both device-managed (use firmware to hide differing characteristics) and host-managed (rely on the application to manage the differing characteristics) SMR drives under various simulated Swift workloads modeled after public cloud access patterns observed at SoftLayer.
 
We also present a simulation of what performance would be possible if Swift's DiskFile abstraction was modified to be SMR aware by performing sequential writes, a key requirement for utilizing SMR disks. We then discuss methods to optimize Swift deployments for SMR drives.

The session will highlight:
- Background information on SMR drives and their management models
- Experiments to characterize SMR drive performance
- How to tune Swift to improve performance with SMR drives
- Potential Swift changes to enable sequential writes that would enable better usage of SMR drives and expected performance

- container orchestration (by kubernetes)

Hyper is a hypervisor-agnostic Docker runtime. It allows running Docker images with any hypervisor (KVM, Xen, Vbox, ESX). Hyper is different from the minimalist Linux distros like CoreOS by the fact that Hyper runs on the physical box and loads the Docker images from the metal into the VM instance, in which no guest OS is present. Instead of virtualizing a complete operating system, Hyper boots a minimalist kernel in the VM to host the Docker images (Pod).

With this approach, Hyper is able to bring some encouraging merits:
- 300ms to boot a new HyperVM instance with a Pod of Docker images
- 20MB for min Mem footprint of a HyperVM instance
- Immutable HyperVM, only kernel+images, serving as atomic unit (Pod) for scheduling
- Immune from the shared kernel problem in LXC
– i.e. isolated by VM- Work seamlessly with OpenStack components, e.g. Neutron, Cinder, due to the nature of a hypervisor
- BYOK, bring-your-own-kernel is somewhat mandatory for a public cloud platform

What Should I Know About?
The success of containers through Docker has created a new operational flow and ecosystem far more reaching than anyone initially expected. Both as a project and a model that unifies, improves, and enforces consistent deployments, while empowering application with near-native performance in a highly-decoupled microservice approach, Docker has created a movement for the next wave of the Internet.

In doing so, numerous projects & products have spiraled out to capture a piece of the industry that facilities the adoption and usage of containers even further. Lost in all the noise of announcements, blog posts and articles is the core of what we all as technologists really care about: what are my actual viable options and what should I know about them?

In this talk, I will walk through the R&D work and market analysis that I’ve done in the container ecosystem and educate you on what technologies are worth tracking and incorporating into your stack including, but not limited to: Kubernetes, Swarm, CoreOS, Flocker and Hyper.

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!

After One year of OpenStack Cloud Operation (NTT DOCOMO)
We had presented our cloud design at OpenStack Paris Summit (http://bit.ly/1DbJPUO) and started the operation after the conference. In this talk, we are going to share some important lessons and processes learned after the one year of OpenStack operation. This talk will help people who just want to start OpenStack operation or think of an operation by a small number of people.

1.   Team Building
It is essential to organize DevOps team to keep up with an active OpenStack development. We created DevOps team from scratch. We share the process of the team building and each member's skill doing DevOps.

2.   Monitoring System
Monitoring is important to keep the system stable. We share items we are currently monitoring (about 60,000 items) and show some important items to prevent service disruption. Alos, we share some custom scripts for OpenStack health check (e.g. RabbitMQ, MySQL and OpenStack services).

3.   Log Analytics
Logs (e.g. OpenStack debug log, Syslog, Auth log and Operation log) give you very important information and we can find potential problems/risks by analyzing those logs. We are getting more than 40GB logs a day and it is difficult to find important information among them. We demonstrate our Elasticsearch based log analytics/visualization tool to sort out useful information.

4.   Continuous Integration
Once you start a cloud service, it is difficult to stop the service though there are many necessary updates. We have updated the environment more than 100 times without downtime. We demonstrate Neutron Agent update that is one of the most difficult part of current OpenStack. We also share CI/CD tools and own tools used for system validation after updates.

5.   Daily Operation
We share our daily works.

  1. Tools help you to monitor the system efficiently 

  2. Tools help you to check security alert 

  3. Issue tracking and management 

  4. Tools and procedures used for emergency operation (remote operation tools)

Thanks to the community, it becomes easier to deploy OpenStack by many tools(e.g. Juju, RDO and Fuel); however, there is still less information about keep running/updating OpenStack without downtime. We are going to share our experiences and own tools developed through the private cloud operation. Also, we share future challenges to make OpenStack operation more efficient. Today, there are still some manual operations but our goal is to help OpenStack operators sleep better by automating most of the operations.

Empower Your Cloud Through Neutron Service Function Chaining
Today’s telecom services are driven by demand for cloud-based services. Customers want dynamic,
on-demand cloud services over any combination of virtual and physical networks. The most urgent problem service providers have today is automating the delivery of network services and accelerating cloud service rollouts.

Service Function Chaining provides end-to-end network service delivery automation that operates completely independent of whether the network is physical or virtual. It integrates with today’s network infrastructure to create a network service abstraction layer that isolates operations from tedious and diverse configurations at the network layer, making the service layer simple, generic, and programmable. Network service can be auto provisioned and deployed on both general COTS platforms and legacy network devices in your data center using service function chaining, in which a wide variety of service functions scattered over the newtork may be chained together in a flexible and agile manner to provide desired service treatment. Scale-out of these service functions to handle added load or scale-in to reduce the resource usage is an integral part of the service function chaining solution.

This presentation will talk about how you can integrate the service function chaining feature, which is being developed as part of OpenStack Neutron, into your Cloud Platform to auto provision differentiated Cloud services in an agile and flexible way, and how to turbo-charge your cloud using service chaining. The following topics will be covered:

1. Overview of OpenStack Neutron Service Function Chaining Solution
2. How to define the service chains in a simple, prescriptive manner to create cloud services tailored to the needs of individual customers
3. How to ensure vendor independence and be agnostic of underlying network technology
4. How to achieve scalability and elasticity (scale-out and scale-in) of service functions on your cloud platform
5. How to integrate container technologies, such as Docker, with Service Function Chaining

Boosting the Power of Swift Using Metadata Search
One of the unique features of an object store is the ability to associate user defined metadata attributes and values with containers and objects.

However, in order to leverage the full potential of valuable metadata, efficient metadata search is essential. Although this feature is currently missing in Swift, it is now gaining significant interest in the community. 

In this talk, we describe the components of design and implementation of a metadata search capability integrated with OpenStack Swift. This facility has a rich metadata search API, and enables key applications that were not previously feasible, such as bio-informatics applications and analysing a media repository. In the public transportation domain, we demonstrate a smart city IoT service which collects bus trip history for EMT Madrid and stores it in Swift, Geo-spatial and time series metadata search enables efficiently retrieving the data of interest - for example it supports queries such as retrieving the bus trip history for a certain bus line close to a major sporting event which took place last Saturday. This enables efficient analysis of the data, for example comparing it with data for the same event in previous years.

The Evolution of OpenStack Dev/Test Environment Setup at eBay
Setup OpenStack Dev/Test environment is a common daily task. But Devstack doesn't work for us because need our own openstack build and configuration management tool to deploy to mimic the real thing in production. This talk will go through a history of how we build a cloud for daily dev/test use. How we transitioned from baremetal to cloud over cloud environment, and eventually adopting Kolla to setup the test cloud. We'll go through the lessons learned during the process and changes we made to make it happen.


 




The talk will be organized as follows:




  • Overview

Cumulus Networks - Automated Installation and Configuration of Networking and Compute: A Complete OpenStack Deployment in Minutes.
Join Cumulus Networks to learn how to go from a pile of servers and switches to a working OpenStack deployment in just minutes with zero manual intervention. We'll show automatic installation of switches using ONIE, automatic configuration of switches using ZTP (Zero Touch Provisioning), and PXE installing the servers, then use Puppet to install and configure OpenStack. All ONIE/ZTP/PXE/Puppet servers run on the switches themselves, eliminating the need for a separate provisioning server. The demo illustrates the flexibility of open networking and the ability to unify server and switch automation, monitoring and management.

Managing Medical and Health Data With OpenStack, a Wearable Sensor, and Smart Apps
Let's talk about the application workloads and scenarios you can envision on a truly open cloud. What do you think about owning your health data or fitness data? How about running the infrastructure on an OpenStack cloud?

After learning that her eleven-year-old son was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 2014, Anne began investigating technology to help with the daunting task of living with the day-to-day management of the condition. True story, she found a way to use OpenStack resources to monitor data from his continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to gather not just five data points a day but nearly 300 data points in a 24-hour period.

Hear the story of finding Nightscout, a collection of open source projects that can run real-time monitoring applications on OpenStack clouds.  While the project's original approach to collect the data required an Android phone attached to the CGM receiver, the project now has a REST API for collecting and displaying data. Justin has a family member with Type I diabetes also, and we can compare and contrast the proprietary approach with the open source approach. We can demonstrate the Nightscout web application and iOS app running on a Rackspace Cloud server with node.js connected to a MongoDB database.

While the CGM use cases are medical devices with medical data, we also want to explore consumer data collection such as fitness trackers. Let's discuss the full spectrum of open source and open data in an open cloud.

Life Without DevStack: Upstream Development With OSAD
In this talk I will share my experience doing upstream OpenStack development using the OpenStack Ansible Deployment (OSAD) distribution instead of DevStack as my development platform.

OSAD is a production OpenStack distribution for private clouds that deploys upstream OpenStack direct from the official git repositories, without any vendor-specific patches or add-ons. But unlike DevStack, services are isolated from each other in LXC containers, providing more flexibility and less dependency headaches.

In this talk I will give you an introduction to the OSAD project and show you how I use it to contribute code upstream. Topics I will cover during the presentation include:

  • What is OSAD?

  • Architecture overview

  • How to deploy an OSAD all-in-one for upstream development

  • OSAD vs. DevStack: How are they similar, and how are they different?

  • Development workflow

  • Types of upstream work that work well with OSAD.

  • Types of upstream work that do not work well with OSAD.

  • Live Demonstration

OpenStackを利用したゲームサービスの実装
我々はOpenStack上で大人数・同時・リアルタイムゲーム環境をOpenStack上で簡単に実現するためのゲームプラットフォームを開発しました。このゲーム環境はユーザのプレイ状態に応じて動的にクラウド上のリソースが確保され、常に最適なゲーム環境をOpenStack上で実現します。

オンラインゲームの通信の制御はとても難しい分野の一つです。1つは短時間での通信量の変動がとても大きいこと。そしてその通信が状態(non-stateless)を持っているためです。この場合、HeatやCeilometerを使った単純なWEBのオートスケールでは対応出来ません。これを実現するには、通信やそれを制御するアプリケーションの「状態」と連携してクラウド上のリソースをコントロールする手段が必要になります。しかし、このような技術を簡単に実現する方法はまだありません。

そこで我々はOpenStack上のリソースをプログラムリソースとして制御するための基礎技術RACKと(*1)、オープンなゲームプラットフォームであるMonobit-Engineを組み合わせて(*2)、この問題を解決する新しいゲームプラットフォームソフトウェアを開発しました。

本セッションでは、美しい&楽しいゲームのデモを交えながら、この裏側を支える仕組みと原理について紹介します。

The Implementation of Gaming as a Service with OpenStack
We successfuly developed a massively multiplayer online and realtime game platform on the OpenStack environment.
This platform archives an optimized gaming environment that dynamically controls openstack's resources by state of the gaming.

It's so hard to handle the online game traffic. Because the amount of traffic changes drastically in a short time, and communications are under a "state"(These are non-stateless).
In such case, we can't adopt a simple auto-scaling method with heat and ceilometer.
In order to solve this problem, we need a way of controlling openstack resources which cooperates with state of communications or applications.
But there was not a way to archive it.

We solved this problem by utilizing two technologies.
First one is RACK, the RACK is a way to control openstack's resources as an actual program resources easily(*1).
The another is Monobit-Engine. It's a free online game platform engine(*2).
We implemented RACK to Monobit-Engine, and they make a best "Gaming as a Service" platform.

In this session, we would like to share the structure and the principle of our "Gaming as a Service" platform while viewing a beautiful and funny gaming demo.

Network Node is Not Needed Anymore - Completed Distributed Virtual Router
DVR (Distributed Virtual Router) was first implemented at Juno. Virtual routers needed to work on Network Node, but, with DVR, they can work on Compute Nodes.  Since Network Node runs virtual routers and some other networking functions for all VMs, it was a single point of failure and can be a performance bottleneck.  If you need a highly available OpenStack system, you needed a cluster of Network Node. And if you need to scale out the networking, you needed to add more Network Nodes.

With DVR, those issues can be addressed. At Juno, virtual routers were distributed to Compute Nodes, but DHCP and SNAT stayed put on Network Node due to some technical challenges. We still need Network Node for them, meaning we also need a cluster for HA and more Network Nodes for scaling out the system. Distributing them, we can complete DVR and we no longer need Network Node at all. We submitted a RFE for DHCP and SNAT distribution and worked on them, targeting for Liberty[1][2]. In this session, we will explain what were the technical challenges and how we solved them. Also explain how we can use the completed DVR and what the benefits are for us.

Multisite Openstack - Deep Dive
Managing multiple sites of OpenStack is a headache.  Each site is an individual silo, with its separate identity management, resources, networks, images, etc.

Tricircle project uses a top-level OpenStack to manage multiple bottom-level OpenStack instances with site-to-site connectivity, to provide the same overlay across sites.  This allows for a tenant to deploy VMs from the same virtual network on different OpenStack instances.

In this session, we will deep dive into the Tricircle project, covering aspects such as cross-site overlay network, image synchronization, VM migration, etc.

We will present our current design and roadmaps.

Building Applications With Swift: Developer On-Ramp
In this session, we will talk about stuff that's going to make developing Swift easy by offloading the hard problems of storage. OpenStack Swift makes your application better. We can find dozens of storage systems that can do read write and delete but the fact that you can use swift for these advanced features means that you're able to focus on making your app awesome rather than worrying about the hard problems in storage.

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

The Containers Ecosystem, the OpenStack Magnum Project, the Open Container Initiative, and You!

The technology industry has been abuzz about cloud workload containerization since the open source Docker project became a phenomenon in early 2014. 

Meanwhile, an OpenStack Containers Team was formed and the Magnum project launched to provide users with a convenient Containers-as-a-Service solution for OpenStack environments. 

As the potential of both technologies emerged, many wanted to see shared governance over the baseline container specification and runtime technology to ensure an open cloud ecosystem. 

This past June, a new group was formed with a goal of creating open, industry standards around container formats and runtimes, called the Open Container Initiative (http://www.opencontainers.org).

So how will OpenStack Magnum influence - and be influenced by - the new OCI group? Why is the OCI under the stewardship of the Linux Foundation? What is the scope of the OCI effort? What project goals and/or principles will guide their work? 

Attend this session to learn the following: 

  • A brief history of the open container ecosystem and the major benefits that containerization provides
  • An overview of the Magnum CaaS plugin architecture and design goals
  • Insider details on the the progress of the Linux Foundation Open Container Initiative (and the related Cloud Native Computing Foundation)
  • What it all means for deploying container orchestration engines on your cloud with OpenStack Magnum

Is OpenStack's Future Still in the Cloud?
OpenStack is more and more the darling of the Enterprise world.  Over the past few years that's changed the development priorities of the community.  With increasing adoption of OpenStack by enterprise customers coupled with the consolidation of OpenStack startups, OpenStack is a changing landscape.

In this free-flowing discussion 3 very experienced stackers will discuss the future of OpenStack and what it means for deployers and users.


  • Kenneth Hui - Director of Technical Marketing at Platform9

  • Jesse Proudman - CTO at Blue Box, an IBM Company

  • Matt Joyce - One of the original DevOps on NASA's Nebula Project


Questions we intend to answer and discuss:


  • Is OpenStack still cloud software?

  • Has OpenStack shifted its development efforts to support a more monolithic model and away from the horizontally scaled distributed model it was designed to promote?  While there are still large cloud deployments making big waves in the community, increasingly, private cloud adoption at new deployers is targeted at replacing existing VM workloads that have a legacy in the monolithic world of VMWare vSphere.  How does this impact the OpenStack community?

  • Is Neutron intended to solve the needs of cloud deployers?  Or is it something else?

  • Most hyperscale OpenStack deployers have still avoided the transition to Neutron from nova-network.  nova-network is again seeing development, and there is an admitted conflict of design goals in the two projects that has led to a fracture in how OpenStack is deployed across the community.   The question posed is, does Neutron meet the needs of a traditional elastic cloud, or is it more intended to address the needs of a more monolithic virtualization infrastructure.  What is it’s place in OpenStack deployment?

  • Is hosted OpenStack the future of OpenStack?

  • OpenStack is still very difficult to deploy, and maintain.  Finding the talent to support an environment has been an uphill struggle for most deployers.  IBM recently made a huge bet on the Blue Box model of hosted OpenStack clouds.  Is OpenStack as a Service the future of OpenStack?  How does the drive to replace costly legacy vSphere infrastructure impact this emerging adoption model? 

  • Is the road to Mitaka the road to a collision course with vSphere?

  • VMWare is a major contributor to OpenStack.  Nicira who was acquired by VMWare was amongst the earliest and largest contributors to Neutron.  Today VMWare is a member of the foundation board of directors.  And yet, increasingly OpenStack with KVM is finding itself conflicting with VMware vSphere in the market. vSphere is arguably the mainstay product of VMWare’s enterprise offerings.  What does the future hold for OpenStack and vSphere, are these once friendly compliments to each other now beginning to compete for the same market?

Neutron and BGP Dynamic Routing
With the Liberty release of OpenStack, Neutron will have the ability to act as a BGP speaker on an operator's network.  This functionality enables Neutron to advertise host routes for floating IP's, and next-hops for tenant networks created with Neutron. This can alleviate many of the networking burdens placed on the operator when designing and operating an OpenStack cloud. It also enables new functionality in Neutron such as floating IP mobility and directly routable IPv4 and IPv6 tenant networks through a Neutron router.  In addition, deployment of Neutron BGP dynamic routing enables better support for existing features such as IPv6 and distributed virtual routing (DVR).

In this session we will explore how to use Neutron BGP dynamic routing to maximize the value of your Neutron deployment.  We will demonstrate how to deploy, configure, and use Neutron BGP dynamic routing and discuss the use cases it enables.  We will also explore how Neutron BGP dynamic routing works with features such as address scopes, routed network segments, distributed virtual routing (DVR), and what considerations operators should be aware of when deploying Neutron BGP dynamic routing.  We will also discuss future plans for expanding BGP dynamic routing capabilities in Neutron.

Managing Multi-hypervisor OpenStack Cloud with Single Virtual Network
Abstract: Based on the results of OpenStack user surveys, KVM is the de facto hypervisor used to underpin OpenStack clouds and Open vSwitch the most common network plug-in. However, as OpenStack matures to run production workloads and broadens its reach beyond the core users, it is inevitable that additional hypervisors, containers, bare metal workload will gain a foothold.  

The whole notion of supporting a multi-hypervisor OpenStack environment is need driven. To illustrate, imagine that some databases in a business are virtualized on ESXi while the corresponding web servers are virtualized using KVM. In addition to the diversity, it is highly likely all these hypervisors and Docker container will be running concurrently in the same OpenStack cluster. As a result, a different approach to interconnecting is required to provide common network substrate.

We’ll discuss how multi-hypervisor networking in OpenStack can be achieved. This session will cover the technology options, the benefits of each and dive into various use cases where a multi-hypervisor OpenStack environment is desirable.

Intel- Match making: NFV and OpenStack Interfaces and Information Models
One of the exciting use cases for OpenStack, is NFV as proposed by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and promoted by the whole Telco industry. The published documents from the ETSI-NFV phase 1 activity contain an informative set of interfaces and information models for NFV. As OpenStack’s origins are more closely aligned with Cloud and there are different sets of information models leveraged in Cloud and Telco, it is probably not surprising to learn that the interface and information model mapping to NFV is not straight forward. However Policy is needed for both communities and both want to make good use of OpenStack.

Data Processing is Made of People: A Case Study in Role-Empathic API Design in Sahara
The “As a…” clause of the classic user story is easily forgotten. To build a feature, we must know what it is and why someone would want it, but as developers we often abstract away the user. Building “the simplest thing that can possibly work” is usually a critical design tool, but without active attention to customer roles and workflows, it can lead to APIs that leak the implementation details of underlying technology or prioritize machine logic over human understanding.

We will use the Unified Job Interface Map feature in the OpenStack Data processing service (sahara)’s Liberty release as a case study in role-aware API design. In addition to demonstrating how this feature can improve communication between data processing developers and cluster operations engineers in your organization, we will examine:

  1. Why APIs in the OSS infrastructure and tools space are bound to leak implementation details at some level.

  2. Why the ideal of an API flow that is intuitive to any user from any entry point is likely a fool’s errand.

  3. Why multi-role customer flows mean that the “simplest thing that can possibly work” usually doesn't at handoff points between users.

  4. How domain-specific awareness of user roles allows smart choices about where to go ahead and leak implementation details and where to build a dam.

  5. How features to facilitate inter-role communication can quite often be built iteratively, on top of existing APIs.

Data processing users will leave this session with details on a powerful model for easing communication between development and operations in Sahara. OpenStack contributors will leave this session with a refreshed perspective on the importance of understanding not only the use case, or even “the user”, but the many roles within an OpenStack customer organization.

Requirements for Providing Telecom Services on OpenStack-based Infrastructure
NTT West provides fixed communication services (such as fixed-line telephone and FTTH) in 30 prefectures in western Japan.
”FLET'S Hikari" is the name of FTTH service that NTT-West provides.
The services NTT-West provide is required to be "stable" and "high quality".
Our business challenge is the cost(CAPEX/OPEX) reduction.
We, The R&D center at NTT-West works to restructure the data center infrastructure of FLET'S services with virtual infrastructure technologies, aiming for cost reduction.
In order to overcome these challenge, we need to be further advanced our server infrastructure.

We have examined the OpenStack(Kiro)-based server infrastructure with general-purpose IA (Intel Architecture) server from six months ago, and are faced with several problems related to Neutron in our examine.
We will introduce these at our session.

First, we introduce the current situation and the next challenges about our server infrastructure, and the functions and performance requirements that require our next-generation server infrastructure in order to overcome the current challenges.

Second, in terms of functionality.
Our Service works on "dual stack" (IPv4/v6) and we need IPv6 implementation.
IPv4 exhaustion is becoming all the more a serious problem, due to the appearance of container technology and the advance of virtualization.
Neutron should be ready for IPv6 to provide functions such LBaaS and FWaaS.
We need UDP implementation on LBaaS.
LBaaS is not able to handle UDP traffic at the present moment.
There are many UDP-based applications (such as SIP and Radius) in our services.

Last, in terms of performance.
The transmission rate of network nodes is not enough for the SLA of IP-Phone (or fixed-line telephone) services.

For this evaluation and report, we've been cooperating with Canonical, VirtualTech Japan and NTT Software Innovation Center.
We show the details of the above, and expect to make progress on these studies through discussion with developers and contributors.

通信事業者観点からOpenStackベースのサーバ基盤に求める技術的要件について
NTT西日本では日本国内の西日本エリア30府県で固定通信サービスを展開している。フレッツはブロードバンドIPアクセス、映像、電話等のサービスを提供し、そのバックグラウンドで大規模なインフラを運営している。サービスの提供にあたっては安定的かつ高品質なサービス提供が求められる一方、CAPEX/OPEXの削減が経営課題として常に掲げられている。

NTT西日本研究開発センタでは、フレッツサービスを提供するサーバ基盤の抜本的なCAPEX/OPEX削減を目指し、OpenStackに代表されるクラウド基盤技術をベースとしたサーバインフラへの移行に向けて検討を進め、調査・開発用トライアル基盤を構築して検証およびトライアルを開始した。この営みによって、(コミュニティの中では既に認識されている内容ではあるが)当方において主にNeutronの機能・性能面の課題に直面している。本セッションにおいては、これまでの検討ならびに評価によって得られた知見を紹介したい。

まず、NTT西日本におけるサーバ基盤の現状およびそれが抱える課題と、現在の課題を解決するためにOpenStackベースのサーバ基盤へ切り替えるに当たり必要とする機能・性能要件について紹介する。

次に機能面について、当方における喫緊の課題としてIPv6対応が挙げられる。仮想化やコンテナ技術の利用が進む中でIPv4アドレスの枯渇は今後ますます全世界的にも重大な課題であると考えられる。しかしLBaaSやFWaaSなどNeutronの各機能においてはIPv6対応はIPv4と同等に扱えるには至っておらず早期の対応が求められる。また、LBaaSに関して言えば、現状はIPv4においてもUDPは対象外となっているが、通信事業者網ではIP電話やユーザ認証等の機能でSIPやRadiusといったUDP通信が必要不可欠であり、負荷分散制御のUDPへの対応が望まれる。
本セッションでは上記を含めた検討・評価結果について報告する。

最後に性能面では、OVS(L2)およびNeutron(L3)のパケット転送性能が課題である。当方で実施した「コミュニティ版OpenStack(Kilo)&汎用IAサーバ機&ToR-SW」のみで構成された(いわゆる3台構成をベースとした)評価環境における性能検証結果を元に性能面における課題を改めて会場において共通認識化するとともに、これらに対する現時点での対策案などについて紹介・議論したい。

本セッションでの課題提起を通じ、Neutronの機能充足に向けてデベロッパ・コントリビュータの方々の協力を得ながらエンドユーザの立場から早期の実現化を推し進めていきたい。

Reliable Openstack - Designing for Availability and Enterprise Readiness
High availability of the cloud and applications is a requirement for enterprises. There are three fundamental levels at which “high availability” (HA) can be provided in an Openstack-based cloud:

  • Controller and core-services level

  • Virtual machine (VM) level

  • Application level


In this talk, join engineers from ZeroStack Inc. as we take a deep-dive into clustering, high availability of services and VMs. Based on our experience with building and deploying a highly-reliable, scale on demand Openstack based private cloud solution, we provide a case study with design insights, lessons learned and best practices.

In the first part of this talk, we describe and demonstrate how various services that constitute an Openstack controller can be created and managed in a highly available way to provide Reliable Openstack:

  • Stateless services: Nova, Neutron, Cinder, Glance, Keystone, Heat

  • Stateful services: MySQL, Message queues


In the second part of the talk, we switch gears to talk about high-availability at the VM-level. In the basic case, we discuss how Openstack notifications can be used to detect  faults of compute instances in order to restart them. In the more advanced context of a remote controller, connectivity cannot be used as a proxy for liveness - we discuss how VM-level HA can be still be achieved to run applications reliably.

Finally, in the third part of our talk, we explain how high availability may be achieved at the application level in Openstack-based clouds. Modern applications are increasingly designed in a distributed manner to survive failures of individual nodes. In addition, we explain how concepts of “affinity” and “anti-affinity” can be used along with the notion of host-aggregates to provide tolerance to failures.

Is DefCore Picking OpenStack Winners and Losers? Answers in Interop 101
By definition, DefCore picks what is required for vendors to use the OpenStack trademark. Ideally, that allows workloads to interoperate between vendors.  A common baseline may help users but can impact vendor differentiation.

So does that mean we are picking winners?  Join us at this session and we'll give you the background and review the critical issues to answer that question.

What is DefCore?  With a growing number of OpenStack projects, we define what is the minimum set of OpenStack capabilities and components that must be enabled.  We go further and define the actual tests (from Tempest) that vendor clouds must pass.  

Why? DefCore is trying to define the minimum set of capabilities for INTEROPERABLE CLOUDS; it is not about an OpenStack distribution or release but trying to create a multi-vendor ecosystem.

After attending this session, you will know what DefCore is, how capabilities get defined, and how it is decided what is and what is not part of DefCore.

After we cover the basics, we'll bring you up to speed on the hard questions that DefCore is trying to address.

The Real Slim Shade
I'm slim shade yes I'm the slim shade all you other slim shades are just imita ... ok, so the joke only makes it so far before the rhyming breaks horribly.

The OpenStack Infra project is one of the largest and most active OpenStack End Users in existence. As a result, we've learned just about everything about how OpenStack operates for consumers, the ways it can fail and the way different clouds diverge. We've encoded all of that learning in a library called 'shade' which wraps the OpenStack clients in the business logic needed to get your work done. shade is currently at the heart of Infra's nodepool project, which is the program that provides a pool of nodes across multiple public clouds so that everyone's OpenStack test jobs can run, as well as the new OpenStack modules that are in the Ansible 2.0 release.

In this talk, we'll talk briefly about the motivation for and challenges of writing shade - but we'll mostly talk about how to use it to get stuff done. In the process, there may be some ranting about things which could work better but don't.

While containers have been around for decades, they are only now becoming the rage for developers and DevOps practitioners alike. Indeed, they have seen a sudden surge in popularity and are rapidly becoming the standard for developing, packaging and deploying applications. What’s behind this?

As more and more companies adopt microservices architecture, encouraging rapid prototyping and frequent change, there may be implications for networking in general as traditional networks haven’t been designed for agility. What are they?

This panel moderated by Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst, 415 Research will cover the inside scoop on the answers to these questions and more from the leading vendors and nimble startups involved with containerizing networking. We’ll also consider how vendors are able to help organizations operationalize their networks and eliminate the IT silos, given the  “don’t touch the network” attitude. Be prepared to hear about all about the emerging trends in containerized networking.

External Plugin Interfaces for OpenStack QA Projects
Starting in the Kilo cycle OpenStack underwent a change in governance model where the scope of what we call OpenStack has been redefined. The new model is called the "Big Tent", and is much less exclusionary. Prior to this the QA program had a policy of directly supporting any project that was part of OpenStack, meaning tests in tempest, support in devstack for running them, etc. However in a model where there are far more projects considered part of OpenStack it becomes infeasible to directly support all of them. Even before the "Big Tent" was adopted, we realized that this centralized approach did not scale well with the growing number of OpenStack projects. With the "Big Tent" opening up the doors to more projects, the scale issue has become even more compelling. 

As a result of this change in governance model, we have worked on moving QA in OpenStack to a self-service model, where each new project in OpenStack is responsible for writing and maintaining their deployment scripts and tests, as plugins to the tools for deployment and testing frameworks maintained by the QA team.This will allow both the upstream QA efforts to scale organically with the rest of the OpenStack ecosystem but also allow new projects to control their own testing and deployment stories for gating, which can increase development velocity for newer projects.

This talk will cover the work which was done to add external plugin interfaces to Tempest, Devstack, and grenade as well as go into examples on how to use each project's respective interface. It will also show examples where these plugin interfaces are being leveraged today.

Extensible Neutron Service Function Chaining - Here It Comes
Service chaining allows dynamic steering of traffic from source, through a sequence of service function devices (physical or virtual), to destination. In current Data Center, the deployment of service chain for a tenant's flow is through static, complex, and rigid configurations and it usually takes days or weeks to deploy it. To reduce the OPEX and increase agility, automatic setup of service chaining is reuqired. 

Service Function Chaining (SFC) has long been a strongly requested feature in Neutron, and with the advent of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a major use case for OpenStack, that demand has only grown stronger. The wait for such feature is finally over in Liberty.

To address the needs, Service Chain feature is currently being developed as part of the Neutron Project. The community had gotten together and are developing a standard-based, vendor-neutral SFC functionality in Neutron using OVS as a reference driver implementation. In this talk we will give an introduction on the service function chaining project and its roadmap.

Attendees of this session will get to know:

  1. Architecture Design, APIs, and Data Models of the Solution

  2. Extensibility, Scalability, and Performance Consideration

  3. Current Project Status: Where are we now?

  4. Project Roadmap

Openstack Native QoS as a Services Framework: Design and Operational Practice
The term quality of service (QoS) traditionally refers to the users reservation, or guarantee of a certain status of service quality. Running a cloud under the assumption that there should be unlimited resources out there for applications to consume, cloud admins are consistently looking for ways to observe user-perceived quality, and to dynamically tune the service level. Both of them should be based on real-time data generated by the cloud.

To address QoS in OpenStack we look much beyond networks. Any resource where there exists contention, there goes the need of QoS. For example:

  • CPU

  • Memory

  • Disk IO

  • Network IO

  • System bus


In this talk we will explore the current status of QoS in OpenStack. we will be looking at both what is possible now and what is right happening in each project space. we will also share what we did in WebEx OpenStack deployment. How we built up the native QoS as Services framework inside Openstack, how we successfully tackled this problem systematically, and finally the most important, what we have learned along this long journey.

Designing the Hardware Stack for Your OpenStack Cloud
Designing a Private OpenStack cloud is complex. It can take months of design and test effort to optimize the hardware and software components. What hardware configuration works best for your management/control plane? What is the “best” hardware configuration for a given workload? What workloads will you initially run (e.g., low latency, compute intensive, high transaction, etc.)? Do you know what workloads will be running in your cloud three months after deployment?

This presentation will cover best practices gleaned across server and services teams as well as the HP Helion Public Cloud in designing and running hardware stacks in OpenStack clouds.  It will explore the best practices and set-ups for control planes optimized for the different OpenStack services, compute configurations that factor in key workload considerations, and the storage and networking architectures that make a difference in how your cloud will handle data when using object and block storage.

Hybrid Cloud - A Different Approach to Managing Multiple Clouds in a Single Pane
 The term hybrid cloud is often used to describe a “cloud burst” scenario – extending the organic datacenter to the cloud, either by moving specific applications/workloads that are suitable for cloud offloading, or by using more advanced solutions that provide additional resource capacity from the public cloud provider.

In this session, we will present a different approach to managing a “hyper cloud” – a cloud over clouds that is completely OpenStack-based, centrally managed, does not require any organic datacenter to begin with and which provides a single overlay network.

We will touch on the following aspects: central management, overlay network, image portability & synchronization and zero-configuration VM migration.

SKT’s Journey Toward Platform Company with 5G Network and OpenStack

SK telecom has been at the forefront of developing and commercializing advanced wireless technology. SK Telecom now has a vision to becoming “Intelligent Platform Company” in coming 5G era

In the future SKT envisions the mobile networks will be used for rich immersive media such as AR and VR, and Internet of Everything.

Therefore it is important to design the next generation mobile network with flexibility adaptability and programmability in mind. In this respect, virtualization is a key technology. 

Especially, with software defined networking, we can “program” how network handles different types of traffic. We can systematically set the policies instead of putting ad hoc rules.

With network function virtualization, we can provision and scale necessary network functions as new demands arrive on the fly.

This talk will introduce SKT’s plan for the next generation mobile network (5G network) and how OpenStack plays a key role to realize SKT’s plan. It will present SKT’s vision toward 5G era, challenges we are facing, what are the core requirements, what role is OpenStack playing, and finally introducing the current projects in this area.

Could You Please Pass Me the PaaS?
You have got your IaaS cloud up and running but are your developers happy? Has your IaaS forced your developers to also become agile sysadmins? At Symantec, we want out cloud developers to remain developers and this means abstracting away complexities of compute, storage and networking details and instead focus on actual software development.

After we built our Openstack cloud at Symantec, our next logical step was to build a Platform as a Service that to provide even more automation and streamlining to our customer’s experience. In this talk, we will share our experience and lessons learned in building a unified customer facing PaaS solution around our Openstack cloud.

Some of the topics we will cover are:

  • The results of our evaluation of different PaaS platforms that are out there like Cloudfoundry, Openshift and Deis

  • Potential design architectures to use when building your own PaaS from scratch

  • Adding multi-tenancy to your PaaS

Making OpenStack Work in an Existing Environment - Challenges and Solutions
One of the biggest barriers  for enterprises interested in deploying OpenStack today is the inability to leverage existing assets - including infrastructure, workloads and their inter-relationships. Committing to an OpenStack deployment typically forces IT to start  from scratch, ignoring any important workloads built up over time. This turns out to either be a non-starter for some organizations, or results in them having to run separate silos of existing, critical workloads, alongside a new OpenStack-based private cloud. However, OpenStack can be taught to learn - and leverage - existing enterprise infrastructure, and incorporate it seamlessly into a live private cloud. This enables users to get up and running with a fully functional private cloud, already plumbed with their existing assets. 

Such learning involves not only an initial pass, but also periodic incremental updates to synchronize the enterprise infrastructure view, with OpenStack’s current state model.

In this talk, we will describe how we, at Platform9, moved our existing dev-test workloads, and infrastructure to an OpenStack-based private cloud, running on vSphere, using a set of such changes for Nova, as well as Glance, which entailed: 

- Enabling Nova compute to discover already existing cloud instances
- Enabling Nova Network  to discover and to integrate existing networks
- Enabling Nova Network to dynamically discover host IP addresses
- Enabling Glance to discover already existing VM images and import them into the Glance repository
- Adding capabilities in Openstack to deal with out of band changes in the cloud environment such as deletion of VMs, network and storage reconfigurations

The benefits that these additions provide to enterprises, in terms of being able to leverage their existing infrastructure within a modern self-service private cloud, are immeasurable. So much so that we made this part of the core feature set of the Platform9 cloud, and believe that it would add great value to the OpenStack project.

OpenStack Operations: Resource Management and Capacity Planning at Comcast
What happens when environments are at capacity for resources? How do we work with customers to move into different environments without live migration options? Detailed metrics regarding performance and capacity is needed to watch the various environments. At Comcast, we continue to develop and implement additional monitoring and environmental metrics in order to be successful with our capacity planning.

Another thing to think about: What is the capacity of new environments in terms of memory, CPU, and disk? Are there any plans to add capacity to the existing environments? Or are the plans only around building out new environments?

Tapping into OpenStack's Notification System
Openstack Notifications can play a big role in extending capabilities of the Openstack. Most of the actions in Openstack which manipulate the system state generate notifications which is posted to the messaging component (e.g. RabbitMQ) and can be consumed by any service outside the Openstack. Some of these notifications are used by Ceilometer to provide chargeback related data. 

In this talk we examine some use cases where one can tap into OpenStack notifications layer and build real world use cases that are so often needed by enterprise IT. 

Specifically, we will cover the following: 
  • High level overview of Openstack notifications
  • Configuring Openstack services to enable notifications
  • Live demo demonstrating tapping in to notifications related to Glance image creation, VM creation, Network creation etc.
  • Auditing/Compliance solutions -- a few examples.
  • Detect unauthorized Glance images in the system
  • Inspecting newly created Glance image to detect infected OS images
  • Auditing network access whenever a VM becomes externally accessible
  • Running network access tools as soon as a new VM becomes available on the network
  • Activity Feed of various Openstack activities which helps Admins to monitor their private cloud.

Delivering Hybrid Bare-metal and Virtual Infrastructure Using Ironic and OpenStack
Provisioning servers has long been service providers’ bread and butter, but in recent years customers’ demand for higher-performing bare-metal instances has increased dramatically, along with their interest in integrating bare-metal infrastructure with virtualized public clouds. This shift in the types of infrastructure customers are demanding is motivating service providers to create more efficient ways of both provisioning bare-metal infrastructure and integrating it into their customers’ overall infrastructure mix, and OpenStack has recently emerged as a key platform in making both of these developments possible.

Focusing on the creation of a hybridized, OpenStack-based bare-metal and virtual cloud infrastructure, this technical talk will look at the challenges encountered as well as the solutions developed to successfully deliver bare-metal instances with Ironic and hybrid bare-metal and virtual infrastructure. Specific topics that will be covered include:

  • Networking model and automation

  • Deployment of cells

  • Integration with 3rd party software

Can We Really Make an Operating System for Data Center as a Warehouse-scale Computer? The T-RON Operating System With OpenStack
We introduce our T-RON Operating System (T-ROS) project, which is the core platform of the SK Telecom’s Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). The T-ROS project aims at realizing an operating system-like system software suite to manage and orchestrate resources in the virtualized datacenter coordinated with seamless physical infrastructure management. The T-ROS will work as an operating system of the Warehouse-Scale Computer (WSC), a data center as a big computer.

We discuss how OpenStack made the birth and the evolution of T-ROS possible and the values of OpenStack to T-ROS and the SK Telecom’s SDDC. We discuss how OpenStack is utilized inside T-ROS as the core resource orchestration engine and the abstraction layer for datacenter infrastructure. We introduce key concepts and technologies of T-ROS, look into some use cases and insights behind those concepts and technologies. The important features of T-ROS are:

  • Data center asset management

  • Automated bare-metal provisioning integrated with the asset management

  • Seamless monitoring of physical nodes and virtual machines

  • Virtual resource management with the OpenStack Horizon

  • Distributed, pluggable Event Bus and on-demand event module management with the Event Manager

  • Ceilometer-based metering and billing framework and metering and billing manager,

  • Advanced VM scheduling and management with the application-aware hierarchical scheduler


Finally, we also share and discuss our vision and future plan of T-ROS with OpenStack.

Auto Scaling Cloud Infrastructure and Applications
In this session, we will show you how to use OpenStack's Heat, Monasca, and Neutron, to autoscale your application! Autoscaling helps you maintain application reliability and intelligently scales your infrastructure while managing infrastructure costs.

In the Liberty release you will be able to use performance and health metrics to trigger scaling policies in Heat. This powerful feature enables the following use cases and much more:

  • Dynamically remove VMs when load is low

  • Automatically scale up to larger VMs when load is high

  • Increase reliability and automatically recover from failed VMs

  • Automatically rebalance application traffic via the Neutron LBaaS


As part of this presentation the audience will learn more about how we have implemented autoscaling, some of the challenges faced during the implementation, and application autoscaling best practices. We will also demonstrate horizontal autoscaling a sample web application while rebalancing incoming traffic with 0 down time.

Distros: Let's Not Make *That* Mistake Again
In the early days of OpenStack—think Diablo and Essex—smart people had a great idea: let’s simplify OpenStack consumption by offering a choice in between the polar opposites of build it yourself (DIY) and a Rackspace account.

And thus, the OpenStack software distribution was born. Startups and legacy IT shops spent the next 4 years trying to convince a skeptical market that distros were the way to go, but it hasn’t worked out. With a couple of exceptions, distros are vanishing from the competitive landscape.

In this session, we’ll look at what happened. We’ll examine the reasons why very few enterprises want to learn or operate OpenStack, but remain hungry to *consume* it. We’ll ask why most enterprise buyers want OpenStack without having to touch OpenStack. We’ll look at the mindset of enterprises that “get” agile and realize their success rests solely on differentiation through application innovation, not through an investment in infrastructure and operations. Finally, we’ll look at some of the places where innovation is happening in the OpenStack ecosystem and how new business models are emerging.

Attend this session if you agree, disagree or simply want to have an honest conversation about what we can learn from the demise of one of the early favorites in OpenStack business models.

An Approach for Migrating Enterprise Applications into OpenStack
Moving Enterprise applications into OpenStack isn’t always easy. Many organizations rely on hundreds and thousands of applications to run their businesses. Migrating those applications one by one can seem like a never-ending journey. Rewriting all of them is not a viable option either. In this session, we will explore a few approaches, from nested-virtualization, containers, and API portability to Orchestration and PaaS, which provide different levels of abstraction, making this transition more seamless. The session will also include real life use cases from large Enterprises (such as TD Bank) and well known Telcos to teach listeners the lessons they learned from their experiences.

OpenStack and Hadoop 101 - Getting Your Big Data Cloud Done Right
OpenStack and Hadoop ecosystems have been enjoying parallel amounts of rapid growth and adoption over the last few years. Project Sahara was established in the OpenStack community to drive the overall “Data processing on OpenStack” theme, while Hadoop-focused companies such as Cloudera and Hortonworks have been offering their vision of management frameworks and deployment models around Hadoop.

At Mirantis, we noticed that many people got quickly confused about different options for adopting Hadoop as a technology. In this talk, we’ll make an effort to address part of this confusion and set the stage for further deep-dive conversations into how OpenStack can actually help in adopting Hadoop in a particular organization. As always, we’ll keep things as vendor-neutral as possible.

Specifically, we’ll talk about the following:


  • An overview and roadmap of the Hadoop ecosystem -- components like YARN, Hive, HBase, and others that constitute a working Big Data solution

  • Management frameworks and deployment models offered by different vendors such as Cloudera and Hortonworks

  • Typical Hadoop logical and physical architecture deployment

  • Architecting OpenStack for Hadoop workloads, including:

    • Picking the right hardware and sizing it properly

    • Doing Storage right (HDFS, Ceph, Swift, direct block device mapping?)

    • Doing Compute right (KVM or Baremetal? Making scheduling work)

    • Doing Networking right (Just Neutron, or do we need full-featured SDN?)

    • Leveraging extras that OpenStack has to offer (multi-tenancy, NUMA, CPU pinning)




By attending this presentation, you will gain a solid real-world understanding of the benefits and ways to build out a working Hadoop/Big Data solution on OpenStack.

PayPal's Cloud Journey From Folsom to Kilo -- What We Learned in the Upgrade
At Paypal, we spent more than one year to upgrade all our Openstack deployments from folsom/grizzly to havana. In this talk, we would like to share the lessons we learned the hard way from the previous upgrade, and how we plan to change the process starting from kilo upgrade. Our final target is to bring Paypal's openstack cloud up to date with upstream and to continuously integrate with upstream.

The previous upgrade process was labor intensive, painful and risky, here is why:

  1. Paypal has one of the largest Openstack cloud in enterprise serving production workloads. The upgrade should not interrupt any of the business applications running in the cloud.

  2. We had mixed environment with folsom/grizzly and mixed networking platforms with nova-network/neutron. There was no standard way to upgrade from nova-network to neutron without interrupting running VMs.

  3. We had a lot custom changes for Paypal’s specific use cases. We also back ported some bug fixes from upstream. This made our code base diverged from upstream. For each new openstack release, we have to manually merge, modify or drop our own changes one by one with the upstream code and run thoroughly tests again the merged code.

To meeting above requirement, we developed a special side project called ‘upgrade-test’ which has all the custom migration code and testing code. The upgrade plan was carefully designed and a few dry runs were executed before the real upgrade.

In order to catch up with upstream release, we decided to skip icehouse/juno and directly upgrade to kilo from Havana. To make sure the future upgrade will be smooth without code merging issues, we did the follow changes:

  1. Refactoring our custom changes into a different project and avoid the dilemma between backport and upgrade. For example, the nova project in Paypal’s github is a fork from upstream nova project. All Paypal specific changes go into another project called “nova_pypl”. The build script will combine the two projects and generates a single nova tarball.

  2. Without ad-hoc change to the upstream code. Any custom features should be implemented through standard customization paths: Paste middleware, API extension, scheduler filters, and class extension.

  3. Actively contribute to the community. Reporting and fixing bugs in the community and sync the changes back to our fork repository continuously.

Kilo upgrade is a milelstone for Paypal's openstack cloud, we will no longer play catching up games and always stay on latest openstack release.

To keep up to date with upstream code base, we can get more help from the community with bugs fixes and new features.

We can also actively contribute to community in the following ways:

1. Reporting bugs we find in a large enterprise deployment.
2. Fixing bugs in the upstream.
3. Actively get involved in blueprints and design sessions for new features.

Prerequisite: Please have git and git-review installed on your laptops

Git and Gerrit are some of the essential tools in getting started with OpenStack software development. 

Git is a free and open source version control system. It allows many software developers to work on a given project without requiring them to share a common network. Gerrit is a free, web-based team code collaboration tool. Developers in a team can review each other's modifications on their source code using a web browser and approve or reject those changes. It integrates closely with Git.

In this session we will walk-through participants to submit a test patch to a repository in OpenStack. The process involves learning about git along with a cheat sheet of most useful commands and review process in Gerrit. Participants will walk away with working knowledge on these tools.

Swiftstack- SwiftStack: Swift is not just for OpenStack, but for many environments & apps
In addition to powering storage clouds from Rackspace, HP, and others, Swift has long been a repository for Glance images and a target for backup data. Durability, scalability, and global cluster replication in storage that is accessible by THE industry standard API for storage make Swift deployments applicable to most any cloud environment, even those without other OpenStack components. Applications that support the API can run anywhere, and still get tremendous value from OpenStack.

This demo session will show many different applications in many great use cases to highlight how applicable OpenStack Swift and SwiftStack can be for any Enterprise or Service Provider. Dozens of sponsors at the Summit agree! Not a commercial or product pitch, this session aims to provide ideas on the ways that Swift can be used to modernize storage and drive more value from applications, from Enterprise Backup to File Sync & Share to Private Cloud to large data workflows and more.

Scality- Scality Unified Storage for OpenStack
OpenStack provides a wide array of persistent storage services, ranging from local data volumes managed by the Cinder API, to object storage via Swift, image storage via Glance, and shared file services through Manila. For OpenStack administrators, this can create a management burden by imposing multiple independent storage silos to provide volume, file and object storage for Nova based application instances.

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

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the OpenStack APIs: An Application Developer's View
On one hand, OpenStack is quite promising with open APIs, open-source reference implementation with extensible plug-in architecture to support different implementations. On the other hand, it is a nightmare for software developers building enterprise-grade distributed applications on-top-of OpenStack i.e., using only APIs available to users/tenants.  Such applications need to be elastic (scale-out and scale-in as loads fluctuate), highly-available (several 9's of availability), and support high throughput (several Gbps of traffic). Unfortunately, many of the primitives available in the physical infrastructure to be able to build such services are either non-existent or available via ad-hoc extension APIs at the virtual infrastructure layer in OpenStack implementations.


The Good (examples):




  • Nova's CRUD API for VMs: The basic VM creation and deletion with several options are pretty solid APIs in the OpenStack and this allows an application orchestration engine to easily scale-out and scale-in the app VMs as needed. The placement options exist albeit bit restricted.


  • Neutron's CRUD API for networks, ports, router, subnets: Neutron abstractions of the networks, ports, routers, and subnets makes it easy for an application orchestration engine to connect VMs to right networks for creating multiple app tiers with proper isolation.




The Bad (examples):




  • No notification APIs from OpenStack services such as Nova, Neutron, Glance, and Keystone: There is no way for the application orchestrator process to timely detect rebooted/deleted/dead application VMs or ports. The only option is to periodically check.


  • Security groups API mess: Depending on whether Nova is implementing the security groups or Neutron, the semantics of the APIs are different!!


  • Network performance: The reference implementation's stack is too complex (layers of different bridges connected by veth pairs, iptables with resource intensive nf_conntrak) with multiple bottleneck locations. And different vendors' plugins have myriad of other limitations.




The Ugly (examples):




  • Too much restriction on network connectivity without exposing proper APIs to customize: For example, source IP address spoofing is not allowed even in a local network, where as that is an essential primitive for building highly available services. Ad-hoc neutron extension APIs such as allowed-address-pairs and port-security APIs alleviate this but not being part of core APIs means it is not no guarantee that they are available everywhere


  • Semantics of APIs left to the interpretation of plugins: for example, in a physical world, all servers connected to a switch can communicate at L2 without any restriction. However, with all of the neutron plugins, there is one or another restriction imposed that is not explicitly indicated (for example, can't have the multiple fixed IPs on a port, can't have the same IP on two ports, etc.)

Walk Through a Software Defined Everything PoC
Let’s go for a walk through a Software Defined Everything PoC.

This presentation outlines a Software Defined Everything infrastructure that virtualizes compute, network, and storage resources and delivers it as a service. Rather than by the hardware components of the infrastructure, the management and control of the compute, network, and storage infrastructure are automated by intelligent software that is running on the x86 commodity platform.

In this Proof of Concept (PoC), the focus is on achieving high availability and scale-out capabilities for an OpenStack cloud using x86 hardware, the MidoNet plugin for Neutron and Red Hat Ceph Storage while helping reduce operating expense and capital expense. MidoNet is an open source software and achieves network virtualization through GRE or VXLAN overlays with a completely distributed architecture.

This presentation shows how to integrate OpenStack, MidoNet, and Ceph, while using x86 systems and switches managed by xCAT (Extreme Cluster/Cloud Administration Toolkit).

Optimizing and Extending Overlay Networking for Containers
Networking for container is rapidly evolving and overlay network is emerging as a popular choice given its simplicity.  One example is Flannel, a generic overlay network using IP datagrams on top of UDP.  Once deployed on a specific underlying infrastructure such as Neutron, there may be opportunities to optimize for performance and to ease some of the limitation of the overlay network.  In this talk, we look at the particular case of a Kubernetes cluster with Flannel running on Neutron networking and VM or baremetal.  This cluster would be provisioned by Magnum.

We will show how Flannel works with Neutron and Kubernetes' internal routing by tracing a round trip message.  We will quantify the overhead of Flannel and identify potential performance optimization.  We will look at the limitation of Flannel from the container perspective and show how some can be mitigated by Neutron.  We will show a demo for these features in a POC based on Magnum and Neutron.  Finally, we will discuss how the POC can be generalized to apply to other overlay  networks.

Managing Microservices at Scale With OpenStack + Docker - Your Ideal Environment for DevOps
OpenStack gives you a non-proprietary and extensible cloud. Microservices and Docker allow for extensible app architecture, and a vendor-agnostic, scalable infrastructure. While Microservices simplify app deployments, they come with a price: because it is so fragmented, it is more difficult to track and manage all the independent, yet inter-connected, components of the app.

With a combination of Docker, OpenStack, and an end-to-end orchestration layer you can have a Microservices architecture, while supporting easy deployments across Build, QA, and Production environments, with a scalable, centrally managed Openstack infrastructure.

This seamless integration between the application and the infrastructure simplifies and accelerates your DevOps processes and software delivery pipeline, while maximizing compute resources.

Using real examples and a live demonstration (JIRA, Jenkins, Chef, Selenium), this talk would cover best practices and tips for enabling a robust, scalable and extensible DevOps infrastructure to support today’s modern app delivery – all the way from architecture, pipeline design, build, test, and deployment.

The Stack and Beyond: Analysis Paralysis
As the OpenStack ecosystem experiences consolidation of OpenStack providers, the landscape of tools, platforms, and vendor-provided hardware/software solutions above and below the stack continues to grow. While the variety of OpenStack-compatible technologies means that users and consumers have a tremendous amount of choice, it also presents an ever-expanding set of decisions that must be made by both users and providers of commercial OpenStack Solutions. In this session, panelists will discuss:


  • The balance between flexibility/choice and vendor lock-in

  • Building loosely coupled/independent services versus fully supported/validated full-stack solutions

  • The impact of PaaS, containers, APIs, and application deployment/management methods   

  • Barriers to exit and switching costs 

  • Emerging technologies and what the community can do to ease adoption and impact for users, operators, and providers 


This is a must-attend session for those building OpenStack clouds, whether you’re building your own or building commercial solutions.

IBM- Hot topics with IBM: Federation and Containers
Hot topics for the community are also hot topics for IBM.  In this session, leaders from both the Keystone and Docker community will combine to talk to you about Federation and Containers.   
IBM’s Keystone Leaders will provide an overview of the latest enhancements to Keystone’s 
Federated Identity Support in Liberty. The presenters, who published a brand new O'Reilly book on Keystone, will also provide a summary of their latest federated identity use cases involving Google identity and WebSphere Liberty. We then discuss future work items and the roadmap that IBM will be taking on their Federated Identity journey.   In the second half of the talk you will learn from IBM's efforts to make an open container 
ecosystem successful as well as where Docker and container technology is heading for enterprises and developers alike.  You'll hear about the two new foundations IBM has helped form around container technology--the Open Container Initiative (OCI) and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)--both help bring an open and level playing field as this hot technology area grows.  We'll share our role in these foundations as a key partner of Docker and community contributor in the upstream Docker community.  You'll also hear about how IBM is applying this open source technology across our platform portfolio and with customers.  IBM has taken the open source Docker as a basis for the Bluemix Container Service and added enterprise capabilities around security and multi-tenancy which will be discussed.  See how integration with DevOps tooling can combine to provide a compelling container service, from 
application development through production.

Clusters, Routers, Agents and Networks: High Availability in Neutron
Of everything that we can build and deploy in a highly-available fashion in OpenStack, deploying highly available networking has been one of the trickiest, most complex aspects to get right.

In Neutron, when choosing the reference implementation, we have several components to consider when deploying for high availability:

  • Neutron-server and its plugins are an API service as any other, with the same HA considerations, albeit with some aspects that deserve extra scrutiny when building for high availability

  • Neutron L2 agents on compute nodes must ensure network connectivity for Nova guests

  • and Neutron agents on network nodes must gracefully ensure routing and DHCP functionality even in the face of hardware failure


HA has also historically not been a very strong focus of upstream Neutron development, with vendors frequently filling the gaps with automation tools and smart service deployment.

In this presentation we cover:

  • Upstream improvements on Neutron HA capabilities over the Juno, Kilo, and Liberty releases

  • The approach taken for Neutron high availability in RHEL OSP and SUSE OpenStack Cloud

  • Implementation details for Neutron HA in RHEL OSP and SUSE OpenStack Cloud


... All presented in the spirit of friendly competition, and upstream collaboration.

Building a Private Cloud to Efficiently Handle 40 Billion Requests / Day
What do you do when your usual setup or turnkey solution isn’t suited for your workload?

Most of the documentation and user feedback that you can find about OpenStack is written for the use-case of running a public facing cloud serving several external customers. When you want to host a single tenant with a single application the problem is completely different, you don't want publicly exposed APIs. You want to ensure optimal resource allocation to maximize your application performance. You want to leverage the fact that you own the infrastructure layer to optimize your instance placement strategy, and to get the best latency and to avoid creating SPOFs using affinity (or anti affinity rules).

This talk will focus on what we learned during a two years journey; from getting OpenStack up and running reliably, to investigating performance bottlenecks, to maximizing the performance of our private cloud.
