Hands-on with OpenStack + vSphere

Nova vSphere support was added in Grizzly and enhanced in Havana. Likewise, Havana includes new support for a Cinder driver that uses vSphere datastores. Come to this hands-on workshop to learn more about how VMware vSphere works with OpenStack!

In this session, each small group of 2-3 people will get access to a remot lab environment that consists of:

- An OpenStack “controller” node.

- A windows host running vCenter

- Several ESX hypervisors.

- A host provided shared storage.

The session will walk you through the key steps in configuring the system for use with vCenter, provisioning servers + volumes using standard OpenStack interfaces, and viewing the resulting changes via vCenter to understand how the Nova + Cinder drivers for vSphere consume capacity from the underlying vCenter-managed infrastructure. We will also highlight some troubleshooting capabilities enabled by the use of an OpenStack-aware plugin for vCenter.

An Internet connected laptop with a standard browser is required for this session.
