Deployment and Management of Your Application on OpenStack using an All Encompassing DSL based on TOSCA
OpenStack Heat is gaining momentum as a DevOps tool to orchestrate the creation of OpenStack cloud environments. Heat is based on a DSL describing simple orchestration of cloud objects, but lacks better representation of the middleware and the application components as well as more complex deployment and post-deployment orchestration workflows. The Heat community has started discussing a higher level DSL that will support not just infrastructure components.


This session will present a further extended suggestion for a DSL based on the TOSCA specification, which covers broader aspects of an application behavior and deployment such as the installation, configuration management, continuous deployment, auto-healing and scaling. We will also share some of our thoughts on how this DSL can interface with native OpenStack projects, such as Heat, Keystone and Ceilometer.

PayPal's Journey into the Cloud - Infrastructure Engineering Transformation
A Strong Foundation was Built
A modern, supported, and secure OS.
Virtualization in production.
A capable staff.

Agility, Agility, Agility At a Personal Level
An agile methodology is critical to the continued success of the Cloud team at PayPal, but its acceptance amongst “old school” infrastructure engineers was not always easy or expected. Each person took on a personal transformation to remain relevant and important. They accepted new roles that were not always visibly aligned with their previous capabilities. They embraced change on their own schedules, finding their own path, but ultimately embracing it. The team was strong. Now we are stronger and more productive (measurable by # of meaningful deliverables year-over-year).

Finding Consistency in a Constantly Changing World
These keep us sane: JIRA, Kanban, and Daily Stand-ups
JIRA: Easy to track your work.
Kanban: Easy to understand what you should be working on.
Daily Stand-ups: Ensuring work is happening, and clearing any roadblocks.

Get Ahead of the Game and Stay Ahead
It's easy to fall behind. We did. Get ahead by being identifying where you haven't been smart. Stay ahead by automating the things that caused you to fall behind. Have each technology or service owner run a simple gap analysis by asking 6 things:
Is it highly available and resilient? Is it able to be consistently deployed and managed? Does it utilize configuration management for installation and configuration? Is it documented? Is it secure? Is it monitored?
If any of them are no, you've found a gap to address. Once you can answer yes to all of them, your next deployment or upgrade will require much less time. And before you know it, you're ahead.

Lessons Learned
Each person will transition on their own schedule based on their willingness to accept change. Don't expect an overnight turn-around in the boots on the ground. When it comes though, be prepared to deliver more products and projects than you ever thought possible, and have fun while doing it with cutting edge technologies.
There is not one way to do agile. We started with a scrum approach and quickly realized that bi-weekly sprints really didn't work well for us. We found kanban and find it well-balanced for the type of work we are doing.

I'm doing Support?!
L1+L2+L3 Support is not ideal, but for an immature product, it is required. DevOps until it's documented well and supportable by L1+L2.

Network Abstraction at Different Layers of the Stack
As the core network abstractions provided by Neutron is getting widespread usage, newer abstractions for network services (such as service insertion and service chaining) are being worked out by the Neutron community. However, it remains unclear if the provided level of abstraction is suitable at higher layers of the stack. In particular, applications that are used for deploying various workloads may find a different and higher level network abstraction more useful. In this talk we first present the Neutron abstraction for networking resources including the newly developed network services. We then show how different levels of network abstraction can be more useful at higher layers and propose alternative workload-centric abstractions for network resources. In particular, we discuss Heat and TOSCA as they relate to specifying the network requirements of various real-world workloads.

Navigating the Transition to Network Virtualization
Network Virtualization promises to impact the networking industry much like server virtualization impacted IT. What this means for you is that the networks in your OpenStack cloud can be architected and operated in a way that is drastically better than the manual and opaque networks of the traditional enterprise era. Specifically, network virtualization provides fully-automated provisioning of network connectivity and policy and opens up new opportunities for network visualization, troubleshooting, and security.

Now that network virtualization has been around a few years and exists in many production OpenStack deployments, we can talk concretely about which of the promised benefits of network virtualization are already being realized today, and which remain as promising ideas yet to be fully realized. This view into the deployments of network virtualization pioneers, along with a view of key industry trends will help your organization navigate the transition to network virtualization.

OpenStack as a Software Factory
One of the elements that any software development groups envies OpenStack is the project ability to coordinate and maintain a working product based on several hundred contributors wihtout missing a single deadine. This is mostly due to the organisation of the OpenStack project and to the great work of the infrastructure team within the project.

As more and more of our contacts are wondering about this miracle that happens every 6 months, we realized that many of them would like to use similar tooling to deliver their own project. For the past few months eNovance has been working on streamlining tooling to deliver this and started a new product offering called the “Software Factory”.

This session will explain what changes and modules we had to make to Git, Gerrit, Jenkins and other tools to support OpenStack Nova, Swift, Cinder out of the box in order to provide and intergrated software factory for about any language.

AWS Repatriation Bring Your Apps Back
Running your own infrastructure *can* be as little as half the cost of running on AWS once you are at scale. OpenStack-based cloud systems can provide the same or similar economies of scale if you leverage the lessons of AWS and GCE when building your cloud. This talk will discuss the economic factors in designing a cost-efficient AWS + OpenStack hybrid cloud.

We'll look at the issues involved in repatriating existing applications, and we'll show a couple of real-world tools that can assist in the repatriation process. Repatriation isn't quite as simple as hitting the Easy button, but if you plan your deployment correctly, you can make it work, both technically and economically.

An Evaluation of OpenStack Deployment Frameworks
In the search to find an automation framework to help manage the deployment of your OpenStack clusters, youl find several tool chains and frameworks to choose from. Symantec embarked on a Proof-of-Concept pilot to test various solution options.
Symantec initial list of proposed features and capabilities included:

  • ability to manage the bare metal provisioning

  • enrollment of nodes in the cluster

  • deployment of the OpenStack implementation on the cluster

  • full lifecycle management of the node from birth, provisioning, operations, and decommissioning

  • high availability configurations of OpenStack components

  • RBAC user/group security mechanisms

  • multiple physical network segments to segregate various traffic types for security

  • multiple-cluster control capabilities

  • multi-region management capabilities

  • ability to scale to many thousands of nodes

Symantec initial design posed significant challenges for all of the frameworks under consideration which required a high-touch professional services engagement with each vendor.

This presentation will discuss the pros and cons of the various vendor solutions for deploying OpenStack. The vendor solutions under test were as follows:

  • Mirantis Fuel http://www.mirantis.com/

  • Canonical JuJu/MaaS http://maas.ubuntu.com/

  • Dell Crowbar - http://dell.com/crowbar

  • Triple-O - https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/TripleO

The Titan (formerly named Pandora), made in Hong Kong, by a Hong Kong man, is a new OpenStack management portal.  It aims at improving and fine-tuning some features of the original OpenStack Cloud administration.

 

Titan is a central administration software for OpenStack. It relies on horizon server, adding extra functions to it.  Users can use it to operate the OpenStack cloud.  The goal is simple: bringing OpenStack to commercial.  The OpenStack project is great, but it splits into many pieces, customers expect a powerful tool to administrate all of them in one.  Billing system and monitoring system are on the road map.  With these functions, Internet service providers will be getting easier to adopt into OpenStack ecosystem.  Helping people and enhancing OpenStack is their missions.

During the demo, it will show how the Titan manage and administrate the Cyberport OpenStack Platform.

The Titan which is now open-sourced for everyone will focus on private cloud deployment in helping small and medium enterprises to build and manage their private cloud easier and faster without paying expensive licenses.

OpenStack for Enterprise/App Developers: Should they care?
OpenStack has experienced a phenomenal growth, but, can it make the leap from 10s of thousands of community members to 10s of millions? Many large software ecosystems that have thrived recently have been powered by developers. So far, enterprise/app developers have remained largely in the periphery as far as OpenStack is concerned although there are serveral use cases like SDLC, Big Data, PaaS atop OpenStack, Hybrid cloud development, etc. that is aimed squarely at developers. Perhaps, IaaS will never be interesting to developers? Can some of the newer initiatives (like Heat) change this?

Should OpenStack appeal to enterprise/app developers? Attend this panel to hear different perspectives as to why and how we can all make this happen. Please be armed with the tough questions and opinions of what does OpenStack mean to enterprise developers. These stackers have worked with large ecosystem of developers in their past lives and represent different parts of the OpenStack ecosystem. More than anything they are not hesitant to speak their mind and so should you.

The True State of Cloud Adoption
While all the hype around cloud computing would suggest that everyone is already doing it, the reality is just a bit behind. There's a learning curve for most organizations that is holding back cloud adoption but in turn presents opportunities for the OpenStack community to accelerate them into the cloud era. In this session, Forrester Research analysts James Staten and Charlie Dai will detail the true picture of enterprise cloud adoption worldwide and here in Asia using fresh Forrsights survey data and qualitative analysis from enterprise client conversations. In this session you will learn:

* The true pace of adoption of Infrastructure as a Service (both public and private clouds)

* What challenges are holding enterprises back from wider adoption (and what you can do about it)

* Where are the sweet spots for enterprise adoption (and how to best capitalize on them)

Bridging the Gap: Explaining OpenStack to VMware Administrators
As OpenStack expands its footprint into the enterprise, more and more people who are familiar with VMware vSphere concepts and terminology will be exposed to OpenStack. In order for OpenStack to be successful in enterprise environments, these people who are familiar with VMware concepts and terminology will need to understand the concepts and terminology in OpenStack. In this session, VMware experts who have moved into the OpenStack space will talk about how to bridge the gap between vSphere concepts and terminology and OpenStack concepts and terminology, showing the value in OpenStack for VMware environments and the value of OpenStack to VMware administrators. Please note that this session does not an attempt to give attendees a detailed understanding of how vSphere-related integrations work or are configured, but instead focuses on educating VMware-savvy administrators and users on OpenStack. This session will be valuable for anyone who needs a better grasp of how to talk about both VMware and OpenStack within an enterprise context.

Demo Theater: OpenDaylight: An Open Source Platform for Software Defined Networking

The OpenDaylight Project is a collaborative open source project whose aim is to accelerate adoption of software-defined networking (SDN), creating a more transparent approach, fostering new innovation and reducing risk. As with most open source projects implementing disruptive software, the power of the platform will come from people as yet unknown to us wanting to do things which we had never thought of, nor planned for. The OpenDaylight community is developing a common, open SDN framework consisting of code and blueprints and has made great strides toward that effort in just a few short months since launch. 

Because it is open source, OpenDaylight can be a core component within any SDN architecture. Building upon an open source SDN controller enables users to reduce operational complexity, extend the life of their existing infrastructure hardware and enable new services and capabilities only available with SDN. OpenDaylight is a modular, extensible  open source SDN controller platform and can rapidly evolve to accommodate new challenges and innovations. Whether your organization is an enterprise IT provider, a network service provider or a Cloud services provider, you can begin taking advantage of SDN using a community-driven, open source controller framework available today.

Demo Theater: What if your OpenStack Deployment Succeeds?

OpenStack efficiencies can be a two-edged sword. Sure, it can empower developers to invoke well-specified infrastructure services and build more cool stuff faster. But at the same time, the diversity of options and components in your infrastructure you want to deploy as a service means your cloud can get fragmented into messy underlying configurations and spin out of control: goodbye efficiency. And if your developers love your OpenStack cloud? Success is its own punishment.

How can you achieve reliable operation at scale in large distributed deployments, without sacrificing rapid adoption of new features?

Much of the emerging technologies supporting OpenStack deployment and automation focuses on helping build the foundational elements of your OpenStack cloud. At Mirantis, across over 60 customer deployments, we’ve developed a set of pre- and post-flight checks to ensure that your OpenStack cloud can overcome that fragmentation. We’ll review those along with the best practices in deployment, monitoring, management, and maintenance. By taking advantage of this accumulated experience rather than re-inventing the wheel, you can speed the time to benefit for OpenStack. What’s more, once your cloud is up and running, these strategies mean that rather than firefighting, infrastructure teams can design/architect new services that developers and users use to capture value for their organization.

Intel IT OpenStack Practice
Wee from Intel IT Engineer Computing, which is a group to provide Intel private cloud solution. Currently, we have a 36-node OpenStack Cluster (based on Grizzly) providing over 1000 VMs to our internal customers. Our OpenStack journey started from Essex. During this one year, we ran into a lot of problems and resolved them. It time for us to share with the community about our experience.

(1) How to manage version update? I believe it very painful for each half year update. We use Continuous Integration to resolve this problem. We track the source code from github every day. Once the code is changed, our CI server will check out the code and deploy it to our test environment and run all the tests. We add our customized tests into tempest. By using CI locally, we can integrate the lasted code or tagged code daily and resolve the update issue in every dayswork. At the same time, we can track the progress of the community.

(2) Tempest is not perfect. Wee using tempest in our CI environment. However, tempest will cause many issues to your environment after you run it. We have added a new module called tempest launcher to help us clean up the environment after running tempest.

(3) More powerful and friendly portal. We develop a customized portal called Taurus which is an operation one-stop-shop center. Taurus not only covers all the functions Horizon have, but also integrate with nagios & ganglia. You can also use Taurus to trigger Tempest and view its result friendly.

(4) Improve the speed of snapshot. Original snapshot is slow because of rebase and uploading each time. We did some improvement in this feature to reduce the snapshot time, which save our customers lots of time.

(5) One click deployment. Based on dodai, we burn a live customized image into USB. And using this USB, it very easy to deploy an OpenStack Cluster.

(6) BI in cloud data analysis. We launch Hadoop on our OpenStack Cluster to analysis this cluster log data nightly and archive the data into Ceph.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Private Cloud
Private clouds have recently begun to gain momentum among enterprises--and with good reason. They're able to deliver the agility and ease-of-use that users have come to expect--without sacrificing any of the security or control that is critical to so many industries. But implemented incorrectly, there's no question that private clouds can be a costly and frustrating undertaking.




In this talk, Steve will spell out the most common mistakes that he and his colleagues have seen in their experience working with companies that have attempted to implement private clouds. He'll talk about what has gone wrong for these firms, as well as what steps your company can take to avoid falling into similar traps as you pursue your own private cloud.

Yahoo! JAPAN Case Study
Yahoo Japan IT infrastructure is a compound of massive, scale-out IT data centers that cover the Tokyo metropolitan area and East Japan. Two years ago, Yahoo Japan initiated a private cloud project. Given the heterogeneous nature of their equipment and future scaling requirements, an open and innovative architecture was paramount. Open source pioneers, Yahoo Japan decided on OpenStack for orchestration. For Server Load Balancer (SLB), the Brocade ADX was selected to ensure application delivery at the speed of the business.



SLB Direct Server Return (DSR) is an effective method of deploying a load-balancer in terms of network configuration. The rate of change for this configuration is very high because directly correlated to workloads deployment; hence adding this step to the orchestration workflow is critical to Yahoo Japan modus operandi. DSR is a discussion topic for a design session at the OpenStack Summit in November 3 in Hong Kong, leaving Yahoo Japan today with a gap in the planning to full automation.



This session will discuss how Brocade has shaped up LBaaS to address Yahoo Japan cloud necessities.

Demo Theater: Software-Defined NAS System Based on OpenStack Swift and Maginatics MagFS
The Maginatics File System (MagFS) integrates with OpenStack Swift to provide a software-defined NAS system in support of elastic in-cloud workloads, NAS replacement and consolidation, and migrating applications from your legacy data center to the cloud.

With native WAN optimization, mobile connectivity, a global namespace and fine-grained locking, MagFS compliments OpenStack Swift’s native cost-effectiveness, data durability, linear scalabitliy, multi-tenancy, ability to serve huge numbers of concurrent users and other unique attributes.

MagFS can be deployed across geographically-distributed enterprises or in-cloud to support scale-out applications where many compute nodes must have ready access to a shared capacity pool. For the in-cloud scenario, pairing the application with MagFS running in OpenStack Swift exposes the full elasticity of OpenStack’s storage platform.

Maginatics has implemented numerous optimizations specifically targeted at our OpenStack Swift customers. These include:
  • Support for Havana (as well as Grizzly, Folsom and Essex)
  • Multi-container support: MagFS supports the Swift best practice of sharding data across multiple containers to achieve higher concurrency and therefore better performance
  • MagFS supports multiple authentication systems in OpenStack including Keystone, the rapidly emerging standard
  • Use of TempURL: From the beginning, MagFS has allowed clients to take advantage of a Swift's cluster scalability by using signed temporary URLs to allow clients to directly read and write data to the containers.

Jenkins Failed My Patch, What Do I Do?
Whenever you submit a patch to OpenStack it is run through an extensive set of automated tests designed to ensure we always have a working upstream OpenStack. If any of these fail on your patch submission, it will be blocked from merging, and will become a low priority for anyone to review. Debugging these failures is often not straight forward, especially for a new contributor to OpenStack.

This talk will look at all those tests in detail, and how to debug and address a failure at each level. What logs to look for, how to understand the interactions between services, and how to handle scenarios that you can't seem to replicate locally, but that are hit in the OpenStack gate.

Cloud Reality in China
China is often regarded as a huge but mysterious market. In the market of consumer Internet, Google, Amazon, Paypal and a long list of U.S Internet companies are almost all lost in China, leaving the huge market to their Chinese counterparts. By contrast, the traditional IT giants, such as IBM, HP, VMware and etc. have dominated the Chinese IT hardware, software and services business for a long time while the local enterprise technology and software companies have few chances to win. What exactly the background reasons behind these facts?

How about the cloud business in China? Which type of cloud business is most suitable for the market? How do the Chinese government policies influence the cloud business? Since the cloud ecosystem is still in flux, but rapidly involving, the market pattern will be formed in a few years, and WHO will be the last cloud winner in China, the Internet cloud companies like Amazon, Google, or the traditional IT giants in China, or the Chinese local companies?

As the founder and CEO of UnitedStack, the first dedicated OpenStack company in China, Hui Cheng has deep insight of Chinese cloud business and strategies. In this topic, he will try to answer the above questions, and also will deeply dive into the cloud status quo, as well as OpenStack opportunities in China.

There is much debate about which cloud operating system or platform will win and that current proprietary clouds will capture the majority of the mindshare and revenue.  There are also questions of whether OpenStack is mature or secure enough for the enterprise.  Join Monty Taylor, HP Distinguished Technologist and OpenStack board member, as he debunks these theories and shows how OpenStack is not only on the right track from an innovation and technology standpoint but also from a customer and market perspective.  In the $80 billion cloud computing market, there will be more than one winner, and Monty will illustrate how OpenStack is one of those.  He will also discuss what the organization and its key contributors must do to move the software forward and achieve this market success, such as interoperability, upgradability and other enterprise-grade functionality.

How We Build Private Cloud with OpenStack in Ctrip
Ctrip(http://www.ctrip.com) is the leading OTA company in China. Ctrip sells 70 billion RMB travel products last year, including flight/hotel/travel/train/ And still under fast growing, so we need a solid and elastic infrastructure to support our business.

We started build private cloud for Ctrip since last year. After evaluated CloudStack, OpenStack, OpenNebula, we finally chose OpenStack. We developed based on OpenStack Grizzly, and now it manages our QA Farm/Dev Farm, part of production environment with thousands of bare metal and vms. We use VMware, and working on migrate into KVM.

I did a sharing on 3rd anniversary party of OpenStack in Shanghai. I hope I can get an chance to have a talk in HongKong summit, and share what we did in Ctrip.

We now have 3 teams (15+ Engineers) working on:

  • Bare Metal Provisioning developed based on Razor

  • extend VMware management in OpenStack

  • Building VDI, plan for more than 8000+ employees in Call Center, we will rollout 500~1000 thin-clients in Oct.

Detail introduction:

Bare Metal Provisioning: (with Demo)

After server been putted on rack, powered on, connected to switch with the provisioning vlan, it can automatically does below tasks. We also have a UI for OPS to submit requests.

  • Baking for a given period, and provides report

  • Configure BIOS

  • Upgrade firmware

  • Setup ILO

  • Configure RAID

  • OS installation supports
    • Windows 2k8

    • Ubuntu 12.04

    • Centos 6.4

    • ESXi 5.1


  • Postinstall
    • Windows
      • KMS activation

      • Patching

      • Network configuration



    • Linux
      • All kinds of configuration



It's based on Razor, and we are working on how to merge it with Ironic, and contribute into community.



Extend VMware management in OpenStack (with Demo)

We did a lot of enhancements and extension on vmware driver. Each tenants can map to an HA cluster/folder in vcenter.

  • add a nova extention as vmware environment to be associate with a tenant
    • each environment contains
      • vcenter/datacenter/hypervisor cluster or folder/target vm folder

      • datastore regex

      • AD OU it belongs to, and AD admin groups



  • Support deploy from template in datastore with customisation spec

  • template management in horizon

  • Multi-compute, each manage one cluster

  • Add datastore filter

  • Add hypervisor filter

  • Support vswitch/dvswitch, use vlan mode, working perfectly with Neutron, both support vmware and kvm(Openvswitch).

  • Extend keystone a lot to support AD integration (AD/LDAP as a Service)
    • Not only manage OpenStack permission, but also take care system(os) permissions of vms or bare metal

    • vms will join Domain, put in specific OU (supports both windows and linux)

    • Support AD group policy update

    • AD user management in horizon


  • Blueprint to extend vsphere support in Neutron: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/quantum-vmware-plugin

  • integrate with zabbix



As for DNS as a Service, we are going to contribute our windows driver to Designate project.

we will start code contribution soon. I believe we will have code commit before this summit.



VDI for call center: (I think till HK summit, we will have a lot of progress)

  • Use OpenStack to manage the whole VDI

  • Based on kvm/optimized Spice

  • Arm thin-client

  • Under heavy development and hardware LPT testing

  • Try to rollout 500~1000 clients in Oct.

Demo Theater: ZBS: Converged Openstack Infrastructure Made Easy

When deploying virtualized infrastructure, storage planning is always a pain point. People often have two choices . Either, buy an expensive central storage (SAN/NAS) storage device. However, with the growth of the data and virtualization infrastructure, the central storage device soon becomes the I/O bottleneck.  Or, store data locally, but with the danger of losing data.

ZBS is a scale out distributed block storage system for virtual computing platforms. It has no single point of failure and can scale with your business growth. It is highly optimized for virtualization workload by using aggressive cache strategy and SSD/SATA tiered storage. In this presentation, I will show you how ZBS works and how to build a converged infrastructure with ZBS and Openstack.

However, operationalizing Openstack had its own challenges in terms of scalbility, relability, usability and monitoring. Given the open source nature, it provided the right platform for PayPal's cloud team to plug the gaps so that Openstack could be used in production.

In this talk, we present the various features, bugs and enhancements that we developed to make the cloud production ready. In the process providing PayPal an opportunity to contribute back to the community.

In this talk we present lessons learned building Openstack cloud at PayPal.

The talk primarily focuses on following topics:
  • Scale issues across all components
    • Scaling to thousands of hypervisors, tenants and users.

  • High Availability for controllers
    • Various mehcanisms like HA proxy, hardware load balancers.

  • Tuning Nova for PayPal environments
    • Scheduling enhancements for failure and availability domains.
    • Auto assignment of floating IPs.
    • Leveraging meta data for cloud init.

  • Keystone integration with LDAP
    • Challenges in providing single authentication mechanism across data centers.

  • DNS as a service
    • Host name registration across multiple DNS zones.
    • Per tenant zone selection.

  • Load Balancer as a service
    • Ability to create vips and add pool members automatically.

  • Enhancements to Horizon and integration with other open source frameworks (Asgard)

OpenStack, IaaS and the Future of Application Aware Infrastructure
Cloud computing services are quickly becoming the ideal platform for the rapid development and deployment of elastic, scalable, web applications and services on virtualized infrastructure. As OpenStack evolves, even more infrastructure services such as load-balancing, firewall, and other virtualized network functions (NFV) are moving into this infrastructure-as-a-service cloud platform layer. Most recently, underlying physical systems are also evolving to become application aware to better meet the performance and resource orchestration requirements of these new, network-centric cloud applications. So, whereas some think of cloud computing as being designed for the deliver of web or enterprise applications, several of the leading consumer-facing service providers are turning to OpenStack as a platform for delivery of a broad set of network-centric services such as video-on-demand, mobile apps, or network function virtualization (NFV). This talk will describe the opportunity presented by OpenStack to evolve its capabilities in this direction in concert with application aware infrastructure to simultaneously deliver faster service delivery and an enhanced user experience.

OpenStack Continuous Delivery Best Practices: Putting What IBM Learned from This Community into Practice
Companies of all sizes are struggling to adopt a Continuous Delivery mindset in order to compete effectively. Although technology plays a significant role (having a Cloud platform designed for agility, scale and elasticity is a must), the culture of the development and delivery organization turns out to be equally if not more important. IBM has a long history of software development beginning on the mainframe decades ago, and as such has a very strong culture around how software should be delivered. With this session, we will talk about how we used OpenStack as enabling technology along with adopting many of the Community development principles as a way to change ourselves from a “Plan everything up front, deliver in large chunks every 9 months” to a “Roadmap, iteratively deliver every two weeks, feedback and improve” type of culture. We will also talk about how we have begun to use our frequently delivered solution as a way to change the way we serve our customers - including solution testing to support.

Titan for OpenStack, Made in Hong Kong

The Titan (formerly named Pandora), made in Hong Kong, by a Hong Kong man, is a new OpenStack management portal.  It aims at improving and fine-tuning some features of the original OpenStack Cloud administration.

Titan is a central administration software for OpenStack. It relies on horizon server, adding extra functions to it.  Users can use it to operate the OpenStack cloud.  The goal is simple: bringing OpenStack to commercial.  The OpenStack project is great, but it splits into many pieces, customers expect a powerful tool to administrate all of them in one.  Billing system and monitoring system are on the road map.  With these functions, Internet service providers will be getting easier to adopt into OpenStack ecosystem.  Helping people and enhancing OpenStack is their missions.

The Pandora which is now open-sourced for everyone will focus on private cloud deployment in helping small and medium enterprises to build and manage their private cloud easier and faster without paying expensive licenses.

OpenStack's Bare Metal Provisioning Service
Would you be excited to have a single API and single pipeline for deploying your applications on your physical servers, as well as your virtual servers? OpenStack can now do this.

OpenStack enables running applications on virtual machines in a cloud - a public cloud, or your own private cloud. But, what if your application requires physical servers, or your production environment is too performance sensitive to run in VMs? The conventional approach is to use separate tooling, such as crowbar or razor, but deploying dev/test and production environments differently is a bad idea.

Using OpenStack Bare Metal Provisioning, it is possible to use the same API and the same pipeline to build, test, and deploy applications on both virtual and physical machines. I am leading the development effort behind the Ironic project, and will talk about the project history, current status and what you can expect from the code today, and our plans as it matures. I will touch on a few deployments that are live, and even though baremetal as-a-service is a very compelling use case, I will explain what remains to be done to get there.

Unifying the Management of OpenStack, Public Cloud, Data Center Virtualization, and More
Adding an OpenStack environment into an already complex IT architecture threatens to overwhelm IT staff who are already spending countless hours managing existing IT architectures. Is it possible to unify the operational management of existing data center virtualization with an OpenStack deployment? What about adding a public cloud provider into the mix? What about adding Platform as a Service capabilities? In this session, Oleg and James will demonstrate how CloudForms can provide a unified operational management framework for all of these scenarios and help IT staff keep their sanity in the process. Subjects explained will include how to:

- Discover and monitor new and existing OpenStack environments
- Provide Showback and Chargeback of guest workloads
- Provision workloads via self-service catalogs to OpenStack
- Create migration analysis reports from datacenter virtualization platforms (including Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere) to OpenStack

James and Oleg will also provide an overview of Red Hat's Open Hybrid Cloud Architecture and CloudForms' upstream open source community. Attendees will leave this session with a solid understanding of how to unify operations management of OpenStack with existing data center virtualization and public clouds in their organization.

Demo Theater: Zwift - OpenStack Data Platform

Until recently, Swift was just a passive storage - a deep freezer for your data. That is great for cold data, but what about warm data? Data that, from time to time, you need to scan, search, query or even arbitrarily transform? Until recently, Swift had no solution for those use-cases. That's why we have developed Zwift - a converged compute-storage cloud, based on ZeroVM Hypervisor and Swift Object Storage.

In this session, we would demonstrate how one can easily upgrade ordinary Swift installation to support in-situ data processing, using secure and lightweight ZeroVM hypervisor. Particularly, how to grep, search, query and map-reduce data natively in-Swift, from the comfort of your own browser, while leveraging huge compute capacity of the Swift cluster itself.

DigitalFilm Tree Case Study

In striving to meet the demands of the modern creative professional we were increasingly in the position of having to continually change our infrastructure to meet the needs of differing television and film workflows. OpenStack allows us to maintain a highly fluid environment, allocating compute, storage and streaming resources with immediacy and simplicity. In the last year we have deployed our software offering, Critique, using a hybrid OpenStack solution. Critique allows for real time creative collaboration on streaming video. Producers, directors and writers can meet at a video and in real time comment in many ways on that video. For the first time we are seeing an unprecedented efficiency in the approval process. Due to the diversity of clients we serve, from major motion picture studios to independent producers, we were in desperate need of an agile solution that would serve all clients with a limited management footprint. There is no question that the cloud and OpenStack are providing a hereto unforeseen level of creativity and productivity in the entertainment industry. In moving forward with an open source solution we can guarantee that all content producers can share a wealth of ideas without the concern of proprietary data disappearing with the ebb and flow of technology. OpentStack is providing to DigitalFilm tree the cloud solution that scales, grows and is perpetuated based on the ever-changing dynamics of show business.

Bringing Private Cloud to Australia, OpenStack on VMware
Background:

Recent research indicates that Australia is one of the most highly virtualised countries in the world. VMware undoubtedly represents the largest proportion of hypervisor technology in Australia. Aptira is an Australian systems integrator with strong involvement in OpenStack deployments in Australia.

Bringing OpenStack to Australia:

Aptira has spent a lot of time speaking to customers large and small about OpenStack. Many of these customers are very interested in adopting cloud, but at the same time they have built an existing business around VMware, with all datacenter infrastructure, operational procedures, tacit company knowledge based on this. This translates to a strong inertia, and when the word “CapEx” is mentioned to buy new infrastructure for OpenStack, the inertia becomes even stronger.

Aptira sees the potential in the marrying of OpenStack with VMware solutions for the Australian market, allowing customers with existing VMware deployments to deliver open cloud capabilities to their own customers or internal stakeholders. Customers don't need to go out and buy expensive new SDN capable hardware, either. Aptira is driving the network virtualisation component of these clouds using Nicira, which works using existing, in-place network hardware, offering a much smoother migration to the private cloud model.

We consider our internal use case is shared by many Australian companies employing virtualisation: we have an existing VMware solution in place and to provide OpenStack compute and networking we would otherwise be required to invest in and operate KVM and ESXi hypervisors seperately, along with installing new networking infrastructure into every rack. Exposing existing VMware solutions as OpenStack clouds creates a large resource efficiency without any additional CapEx required and minimal (if any) changes to existing infrastructure architectures.

We'll talk about our experience trying to achieve our use cases and meet real customer requirements using OpenStack + VMware:

  • What worked

  • What didn't

  • What improvements we'd like to see in the future

  • Working with VMware and Nicira engineers on OpenStack code

Encrypted Block Storage: Technical Walkthrough
The Volume Encryption feature in OpenStack presents a normal block storage device to the VM but encrypts the data in the virtualization host before writing to a remote disk. This provides data confidentiality against network traffic interception, compromised storage hosts, and stolen disk drives. To the end user, the block server operates exactly as it would when reading and writing unencrypted blocks. It includes a key manager interface that supports key generation and storage, and the interface allows different key managers to be supported such as Barbican or a KMIP server. This session will be split into two parts, the first covering the set up of the Barbican key management service and the second covering the configuration and use of Cinder and Nova to provide encrypted block storage.

Launching a Cloud Provider with OpenStack
When launching a IaaS Provider, time to market, reliability, scalability and cost are everyday concerns. Widely adopted by successful service providers, OpenStack seems to be the way to go but is it comparable, in terms of features, with Cloud Providers Packages from vendors such as Joyent, OnApp, Citrix or Parallels? While commercial cloud service providers packages may not offer the flexibility needed or can kill any business case, the Do It Yourself approach is certainly not cutting the time to market or complexity. The same applies for the hardware while OCP based servers or Open Storage could bring big savings, they are not for every organization.



In that session, we will have a close look at the different options, pros and cons of integrated solutions versus custom integrations, all from an OpenStack perspective. We will talk about where the competitive advantage can come when using a packaged solution but also have a look at the differentiators and value added a custom integration can bring.

Taskflow: An OpenStack Library That Helps Make Task Execution Easy, Consistent, and Reliable
We will present an overview of Taskflow[1]: a Python library for OpenStack that helps make task execution easy, consistent, and reliable. TaskFlow allows the creation of lightweight task objects and/or functions that are combined together into flows (aka: workflows). It includes components for running these flows in a manner that can be stopped, resumed, and safely reverted. Projects implemented using the Taskflow library enjoy added state resiliency, and fault tolerance. The library also simplifies crash recovery for resumption of tasks, flows, and jobs. With Taskflow, interrupted actions may be resumed or rolled back automatically when a manager process is resumed.

TaskFlow is proposed to be the foundation library for Convection[2] (Cloud based Workflow-as-a-Service capabilities for OpenStack). An update on the progress for TaskFlow (features and capabilities ready to be consumed by OpenStack projects) and a proposed path for possible integration into Oslo and development of Convection will be presented.

Demo Theater: Cloudify your App on OpenStack in One Click

Just developed a new feature, and looking to try it out? The process of testing new features can be tedious and time consuming – you need to download, run it, set it up, and then quite often you find that it doesn’t even fit into a single VM or desktop. All this often creates friction in the process.

But, what if you could commit a new feature and immediately let users try it out directly from your GitHub project or blog without any hassle? This session will present a new open source solution that enables you to demo your new features on OpenStack through a single click deployment.

Meet the OpenStack Technical Committee
The OpenStack Technical Committee is the body overseeing the OpenStack open source projects. It is in charge of the technical direction of OpenStack and the organization of the development community. Its members are elected by all the active technical contributors, which makes the Technical Committee the final expression of the meritocracy at work in our project.

This session will be organized as a panel featuring only Technical Committee members. Those are usually discreet and busy folks... take this unique opportunity to meet several of them in one shot !

We'll talk about the Technical Committee history and role, its independence from the Foundation board of directors, the recent changes in its governance, and the projects we added during the Havana cycle. There will be plenty of time left to address questions from the crowd, so if there is anything you always wanted to ask to the people behind the most rapidly growing open source project in history, here is your chance.

Going Brokerless: The Transition from Qpid to 0mq
There are a few critical components to any Openstack deployment that can be considered show stoppers if they go wrong. Perhaps the most important of these is the messaging system. When Bluehost set out to run a large deployment of Openstack we initially evaluated RabbitMQ and Qpid. We chose Qpid and have had numerous problems with reliability, resiliency and speed.

I would like to talk about our transition from Qpid to 0mq in our production environment, the lessons learned along the way, and why brokerless Openstack is the way of the future.

DNS in the Cloud: The Designate DNS as a Service Project
DNS is something everyone who uses any Internet service uses and often doesn't give much though to. DNS is a service that uses a distributed database to provide a mapping of IP addresses to domain names and hosts to access resources on the Internet (and internal networks). Without DNS, maintaining lookup data would be a difficult endevor.

With cloud environments, including Openstack, there is an obvious need for a DNS service. The project that intends to provide DNS needs for Openstack is Designate.

Designate is a an Openstack-inspired DNS as-a-service project. It is intended to be used to provide a DNS service from the entry point of creating, updating, maintaining and deleting DNS data using the Designate API, to providing a means to update any number of DNS server backends.

Designate is a modular project, allowing for the use of the DNS serveror backend database for storage of DNS data. Designate provides a RESTful API the provides functionality that one would expect to find with any Openstack project which can be used by customers be it front-end interaction by users or by other projects that require DNS.

Designate also has service for listening to Nova and Neutron notifications to make it possible those services to be the source of DNS modifications through Designate.

Designate is an ideal project to use for developing DNS as a service for an organization, and HP in particular has based their generally available DNSaaS product on Designate.

This discussion will provide an overview of Designate as well as in-depth discussion of the various components such as:

* Designate processes and configuration

* How Designate allows multiple DNS server backends and creating new backends

* How Designate allows backend database storage

* The Designate API

Orchestrating an OpenStack DevOps Cloud Environment for R&D Organization to Achieve Continuous Delivery
Presenters: Ting Zou, Director of R&D Cloud Data Center, Huawei Technology USA

Tanay Nagjee, Solution Architect, Electric Cloud USA



Engineering productivity and DevOps are growing areas of focus for the technology industry. Software companies of every size are adopting continuous delivery. With over 140,000 employees worldwide, Huawei's strategy for the adoption of a DevOps cloud R&D environment requires careful planning and coordination. We combined a suite of technologies and open source tools including Jenkins, Subversion, Redmine, Review Board, Chef, and OpenStack etc. to provide a continuous delivery cloud solution targeted to deploy in stages across Huawei R&D data center facilities in multiple sites.



In this implementation, ElectricCommander from Electric Cloud orchestrates the integration of the various tools and interactions of each R&D process and activity into one suite, such as integrating the OpenStack API to dynamically deploy virtual machines, launch and monitor the build/test/deploy processes on them, and tear them down when finished. This dynamic deployment and teardown creates an elastic cloud that minimizes resources required and maximizes productivity. The solution provides developer, testing, or release engineers with the capability for integrated end-to-end automation, from bug fixes through local build/unit testing, bug status updates, code review requests, SCM merge/commit, continuous integration/build, parallel function/regression testing execution all the way to the end of production deployment. Learn how this integration works to orchestrate resource usage across the R&D environment in this expansive company.

Deploying Federated OpenStack Deployments on IPv6 Backbones Experiences, Directions and Architecture
The phenomenal growth of OpenStack will necessitate larger deployments, often in a federated fashion. Often such deployments require that we leverage existing IPv6 networks for both infrastructure as well for
tenant networks. Thus, there is an urgent need to study large federated deployments of OpenStack on pure IPv6 backbone networks.

In this talk, we share our experiences with our IPv6 deployment of OpenStack across three academic sites on a large IPv6 backbone (CERNET2). In addition, we present an architecture and some solution concepts that enable such deployments. In particular we present best practices for Neutron.

Object Striping in Swift
In the current implementation of Swift, the entire object is stored mostly as a single file on object server.

Idea behind striping the object is basically to have parallel read/writes of object stripes from multiple object servers. The whole idea is to stripe the object, write stripes in parallel across the available and possible object servers, and read it in parallel from multiple object servers.

Vectored I/O to object can be the extended functionality along with object striping.

Advantages:

  1. Participation of maximum available and possible object servers in object reads and writes.

  2. Increase in Swift throughput: Especially in case of large size objects (object size more than stripe/chunk size like 1MB, 2MB and so on).

  3. Load sharing across multiple object servers can be achieved.

  4. Update operation support on objects can be added using vectored I/O.

Surviving the Worst: A Vision for OpenStack Disaster Recovery
In the Portland Summit, we surveyed various approaches to surviving a full data center disaster with OpenStack. Ensuring the ability to recover the technology infrastructure after a disaster is hard. It is hard since it requires geographic distribution, where data written by an application is replicated to the data center which will be used for recovery. OpenStack, as we described in the Portland Summit, is still immature in this respect. As an emerging IaaS platform that is seeing more and more enterprise use, we need OpenStack to evolve to easily support disaster recovery (DR). We believe OpenStack should provide a consistent mechanism to abstract the DR support built into many enterprise systems, and higher level automation, e.g., via Heat, should be able to easily configure these mechanisms into a DR solution appropriate for a workload. In this presentation, we will review basic DR concepts and present our OpenStack DR vision.

Differentiated Services == Differentiated Scheduling
The role of the Nova scheduler in managing quality of service

Cloud service providers are striving to provide premium services (at premium pricing) to attract mission critical and performance critical applications, while providing best-effort level of service (at competitive pricing) to attract all other applications.

This calls for a cloud service delivery system that supports differentiated service level per application or per tenant in terms of (high) availability and performance.

In this presentation we will show how Openstack differentiated cloud services can be achieved just by adding VM group scheduling policies to the Nova scheduler. We will describe the VM-Ensemble extension we have recently introduced to the Havana Nova Scheduler to cover the availability aspect by providing Anti-Affinity scheduling policy to achieve host failure tolerance.

We will also describe other VM group scheduling policies like “Network-Proximity”, “Host-Capability” and “Host-Exclusivity” to cover performance and security aspects of service level that we are planning to introduce going forward in the Nova Scheduler roadmap.

Big Data on OpenStack - A Game Changer? Panel Discussion
The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data applications make cloud environments an ideal fit. Having said that virtulization overhead, security and regulation minimised the use of Big Data on the Cloud. Can OpenStack change that? Can Big Data on OpenStack become a first class citizen just like any other framework? How does new features such as Bare Metal support effect the use of Big Data on OpenStack? How centralized cloud-based storage will influence BigData applications?

Our panel speakers represent Mirantis (Ilya Elterman), HP (Bruce Mathews), RedHat (Brent Holden), Craig Tracey (Hubspot), Nati Shalom (GigaSpaces) will lead the discussion as moderator.

Provisioning Software Defined Servers (Moonshot) Using Cloud OS
Moonshot Servers are the world first software defined servers tailored and optimized for specific workloads. Moonshot servers are tailored servers that would address specific and unique business needs.

The Moonshot servers are designed for workloads like web hosting, cloud services and multi tier architecture applications. The software defined server architecture is driven by application workloads

Process of selecting software defined server for deployment of workloads is to list of all matching servers supporting the workloads which are available from the inventory. Rank the servers by the most suitable for deployment condition/requirement.

Example for requirement can be application performance, clustering for High availability or Load balancing.

The presentation will describe the journey of provisioning workload on Software define servers (Moonshot) using OpenStack

This session will highlight the challenges and changes made to OpenStack for provisioning workload on Software define servers (Moonshot) using OpenStack

It should also serve as a catalyst for ongoing discussions on Ironic project

Security on Openstack
Title :

Security on Openstack

Presenters :

Brian Chong

Audience :

Security Architects or CISO that are looking to deploy Openstack in a Enterprise Datacenter to run SaaS/PaaS/IaaS applications.

Objective :

This presentation will cover different security concepts that needed to be addressed in an overall Openstack design. Due to the additional control plane elements that are introduced in the messaging tier as well as the API level there are now several new attack vectors that must be considered when desigining your Enterprise Network and Security strategy.



In the world of Software Defined Data Center it does not eliminate the need for the physical plane of control (switches, routers, hosts and storage) but it adds a new control plane element which is the Data Center Controller which never existed before. All of the old issues of device managers must be still designed while adding this element without losing the security we had before with separate device element managers.



This means a new approach on network design and network segmentation must come into play when designing a security architecture for the future data centers.

Kickstack: Rapid OpenStack Deployment with Puppet
In this presentation, we discuss Kickstack (https://github.com/hastexo/kickstack), a pure-Puppet orchestration layer for the automatic deployment of OpenStack. Using a simple scheme of “node roles” expressed as classes in a Puppet module, you can use Kickstack to easily run, deploy and configure OpenStack using nothing but a Puppet manifest, an External Node Classifier (ENC), or both.

This practical hands-on session was first presented at this year's OSCON 2013 (http://www.oscon.com/oscon2013/public/schedule/detail/29620). This is a condensed, updated version.

Attendees wishing to follow along with the practical content presented in the workshop should bring their laptops with VirtualBox pre-installed.

The OpenStack Community Welcomes Developers in All Languages
The OpenStack application programming interface (API) is accessible via web services. However, the application developers who are buildling solutions on top of OpenStack do not want to talk to that API directly. They want to talk to OpenStack in the programming language of their choice. That means using software development kits (SDK) written in a variety of programming languages. These SDKs allow the developers to be more efficient and productive when using OpenStack.

In this session you will learn the following about software development kits:

  1. Why they are necessary.

  2. What they can do for developers.

  3. Which ones are available.

  4. How to use them.

  5. Who is developing them.

  6. What comes next.

OpenStack on the Fabric: A Real World Study into Deploying and Operating OpenStack on a Fabric Computing Architecture
IT organizations are adopting OpenStack in order to greatly simplify the provisioning and consumption of infrastructure. It has benefited developer teams by enabling them to acquire VMs in minutes. DevOps is realizing benefits through simplified management and significantly improved utilization of resources.

As OpenStack adoption grows, companies are studying new infrastructure architectures that best fit the OpenStack model. Fabric computing is one such new architecture. It redefines the traditional server by disaggregating CPU, Memory, Networking, and Storage into shared pools of hardware resources, all connected across a high performance fabric. This is an architecture that is well suited to the provisioning model of OpenStack.

In this talk we will share our experience deploying OpenStack on a fabric compute architecture. We will share our deployed architecture, realized benefits, lessons learned, and things we would like to see from infrastructure providers in the future.

Some of the experiences shared will include:

Speed of Deployment - How quickly OpenStack can be deployed and additional capacity added?

Power and Space - How much reduction in power and space is realized?

Bare Metal (Ironic) - Are there benefits to running OpenStack Bare Metal provisioning on a fabric architecture?

Disaggregated Storage - Can disaggregation of disks from servers benefit OpenStack?

Running OpenStack over a VXLAN Fabric
Over the past year, VXLAN has emerged as a leading technology for deploying highly scalable clouds on top of a layer 3 fabric. In this talk, we'll dive into the requirements and benefits of a VXLAN based design, the options for deploying OpenStack on top of a VXLAN fabric today, and the current limitations of VXLAN support and the future work required within OpenStack and Neutron to make VXLAN more widely deployable. We'll also talk about the work that Arista Networks has done within the Modular L2 Neutron plugin to integrate the management of the physical network into OpenStack and provide a solution that automates the provisioning of logical tenant networks across both the virtual and physical network.

Why VXLAN?
VLANs are simply no longer sufficient for modern, multi-tenant clouds. VXLAN is a standardized overlay technology for encapsulating layer 2 traffic on top of an IP fabric, resulting in a more scalable and fault tolerant network design that can support a much larger number of tenant networks than a standard VLAN-based design. Arista has been a leading proponent of VXLAN, having been an author of the original VXLAN spec and having shipped the industry's first physical switch with VXLAN support.

Solution Requirements
Besides the obvious requirement of a virtual or physical switch that serves as the VXLAN tunnel endpoint (VTEP), there are a couple other key requirements to consider in deploying OpenStack clouds on top of VXLAN:

1/ while the VXLAN spec specifies the use of IP multicast to distribute broadcast, unknown unicast, and multicast traffic, most people do not want to deploy IP multicast and therefore require an alternative solution for learning and flooding

2/ for physical workloads that are not VXLAN-aware (for example storage or non-virtualized servers), or for the gateway for North-South traffic into and out of your OpenStack cloud, you need the ability to bridge traffic into and out of the VXLAN fabric at a high bandwith that a software gateways cannot generally provide.

Running OpenStack on top of a VXLAN fabric
OpenStack and Neutron provide a range of options for deploying your cloud on top of VXLAN. You can build on top of native Neutron components, or leverage an external SDN controller. You also have to the choice of where your VTEP functionality resides, whether it's in the virtual switch, the physical switch, or a mix of both. We'll go over these various options for deploying OpenStack using VXLAN, their current advantages and limitations, and the work that Arista has done to integrate the provisioning and orchestration of the physical network into these solutions. We'll also talk about the future work required in Neutron to continue to expand the options for deploying OpenStack over a VXLAN fabric.

An Intimate Look at Running Openstack Swift at Scale
I'll admit that I am a bit biased, but I think Openstack Swift is one of the best kept secrets of Openstack. It has been the engine of Rackspace Cloud Files for more than 3 years, and in that time has grown phenomenally. For the first time, we will allow an intimate look at the scale at which we run Openstack Swift at Rackspace. From early beginnings, to growing pains, to where we are now and beyond. Join me as we unlock the mysteries of, perhaps, the largest Openstack Swift clusters in the World.

Panel Discussion: OpenStack and the Enterprise - Enabling OpenStack with Microsoft Products
As OpenStack continues to grow in popularity among cloud providers and developers, it is also making inroads into enterprise IT organizations.  As this occurs, the OpenStack community needs to understand what these organizations require to consume the open cloud technology.

Many enterprises rely on Microsoft solutions and toolsets to manage their IT assets and service their end users, so finding ways to better integrate these Microsoft tools with OpenStack opens the doors to broader adoption of OpenStack as a cloud option for the enterprise.

In this session, moderated by Microsoft’s Peter Pouliot, hear about how key OpenStack community leaders are working to enable OpenStack with Hyper-V, Windows, and other Microsoft tools.  Panel members will include: Joseph George (Dell), Das Kamhout (Intel) and Georgiy Okrokvertskhov (Mirantis)

Panel on Application Portability
It's a multi-cloud world and your code needs to run somewhere. However, the cloud you choose today may not be the cloud you need tomorrow. Changes in reliability, performance, cost, and privacy may drive you to research alternative public clouds, a private cloud, or a hybrid of the two. Considering application portability upfront can be crucial in avoiding lock-in. The tools you use to interact with the cloud will play a large part in how portable your application is between clouds.

This panel will discuss the different approaches to application portability, e.g. API compatibility, multi-cloud SDKs, image portability, application architecture portability, etc. Is application portability a myth or reality? What are the pros and cons?

Bring your questions to be answered by our panel of experts.

Bridging the Gap: Cinder and vSphere
Getting from here to there can be difficult at times. In our case, we want to bring the benefits of OpenStack to the enterprise. This means working with platforms and technologies that are already in place within the enterprise. For VMware, this means ensuring that existing VMware customers can benefit from OpenStack and Cinder without making wholesale changes to their existing storage architecture. For vSphere, we do this through the datastore construct. Until now, the native vSphere datastore has not been available to Cinder Volume consumers directly.

In this session, we will discuss the new VMware VMDK Cinder Driver and how it will allow existing VMware customers to simply add Cinder to their internal clouds. Please join us for an in-depth review of the driver, the code that we are submitting to the community, a demo of the prototype and our goals for making VMware vSphere work seamlessly in an OpenStack environment.

Deep Dive into Neutron




As far as we know, a lot of stackers are still confused by the neutron and its concept. Sometimes, it is a headache for them to choose between nova-network and neutron when they deploy OpenStack.




On Grizzly and Havana design summits, we had workshops to show stackers the basic

behaviour of neutron. In this session, we will dive into neutron so that stackers could understand what is inside the neutron. It includes:

1. Big picture of neutron components and its position in a Openstack deployment

2. Deep dive into main neutron API methods and their implementation under Linux bridge, ovs and ryu plugins

3. Neutron routers and floating IPs and its iptables rules

4. Introduction of neutron load balancer as a service, firewall as a service and VPN as a service



After this session, hope users are more confident with deploying neutron.

Compass – Yet Another OpenStack Deployment System
There is no lack of deployment software in the OpenStack market, and each one of them provides great value from different perspective and scenario. These deployment solutions did a great job on software deployment layer based upon OS provisioning tools like Cobbler and configuration management tools like Puppet/Chef, but they generally do not go deep down to networking and server hardware level configuration, which is a key step for large scale OpenStack solution. As part of a networking company and a server vendor, Huawei Cloud team are developing Compass, a system not only for OpenStack software deployment, but also for fully automated hardware level server and networking gear configuration. Our system automates hardware resource discovery, hardware configuration (e.g., hardware RAID configuration, switch configuration), topology-aware OpenStack service deployment and etc. Therefore, end users have a streamlined OpenStack deployment experience with Compass.



We are using Compass for deploying OpenStack cloud in our Telco customer sites and got very constructive feedback for us to make more robust and open deployment solution. We plan to open source our project. One major goal we have in designing the system is to achieve true openness at hardware level, so that other hardware vendors can write plug-in toward their special server designs. Just like OpenStack openness makes it a valuable game-changing cloud solution, we hope we can work with other hardware vendors to make OpenStack universally available on various hardware platforms in a streamlined fashion.

How to Write a Neutron Plugin, If You Really Need to
This talk will provide a brief tutorial concerning the steps to take to develop a Neutron plugin from scratch, after discussing whether a new plugin is really required or instead the best strategy would consist in reusing and/or extending one of the existing Neutron plugins.

The target audience for this talk are engineers working for companies providing network products/services which might be interested in interfacing them with Neutron, as well as engineers deploying Openstack with Neutron which are interested at looking how they can extend plugin capabilities to implement their requirements.

The agenda of the talk can be quickly summarized as follows:

* What is a Neutron plugin, and how Neutron API calls are dispatched to it

* Do I need to write a new plugin?

* What are my options for adding capabilities to existing plugins?

* So I need to write my own plugin...

* Where to start from

* Implementing the Neutron API - the 'sendmail' plugin

The Virtual Organization Concept for Authorization Management in Federated Clouds
Many organizations across academia, industry and government need to securely share data and services with partners to accomplish common goals. “Big Science”, such as high-energy physics, requires access to unique scientific instruments by collaborative research teams across the globe. Digital film production can require the collaboration of many independent production houses for different special effects to produce a final feature. Many sovereign governments have issued mandates for their agencies to adopt cloud computing, which in turn must interact with citizens, industry and other governments. The requirement these use cases have in common is to selectively authorize particular individuals and roles from different organizations that collectively constitute what can be called a virtual organization.

In the NIST cloud definition, the concept of a community cloud was intended to capture this requirement. However, what a community cloud really represents, and requires, is secure cloud federation. Cloud federation begins with federated identity management -- enabling different cloud providers to authenticate users from different organizations that rely on different identity providers. An approach for federated identity management in OpenStack has already been implemented and proposed by the University of Kent. Once identity has been established, however, how can authorization to resources across multiple, federated cloud providers be managed in a secure way, given that only subsets of users from each identity provider need to be selectively authorized to use the protected resources?

In this talk, we present the Virtual Organization (VO) concept for managing federated authorization. We will begin by presenting the current status of the Kent work, and how it can directly support VO-based authorization. A VO is essentially a context for managing security and collaboration across multiple institutions. It is used to manage group membership that is not tied to any one institution. We will present the basic VO concepts and also discuss a number of design issues and implementation options: (a) the use of an external VO management server vs. a distributed database, (b) managing cloud federation at the infrastructure level (resources on-demand) vs. federation at the application level (access to cloud-hosted application data and services, (c) role-based vs. attribute-based authorization, and (d) semantic interoperabililty. We also present results from a prototype VO implementation in the OpenStack Keystone and Swift services for the NCOIC/NGA GEOINT Community Cloud prototype
for international disaster response. This prototype demonstrated how international stakeholders can securely share cloud-hosted data, on-demand, to respond to a natural disaster, such as a Haiti earthquake. (NOTE: This prototype is on-track for final demonstration in September 2013 in the Washington DC area.)

The goals of this presentation are to (a) present the design space and implementation options for VOs in cloud federation, (b) gauge marketplace requirements, and (c) galvanize further work in the OpenStack community towards practical solutions.

Real World Usage of GlusterFS + OpenStack

The Gluster community has been working hard to ensure GlusterFS is integrated with each OpenStack storage interface. With that integration, as well as the latest VM image management features, GlusterFS 3.4 is now a first-class citizen of the OpenStack ecosystem.

In this workshop, Eric Harney and John Mark Walker will demonstrate how to deploy OpenStack with GlusterFS as a scale-out storage platform *today.* They will also detail the four major areas of focus for integration:


  • Swift: A GlusterFS-backed storage platform has been implemented for the Swift API using the upstream Swift proxy server/API layer. This provides a unified storage backend for object as well as POSIX data.


  • Glance: While it has been possible to use a mounted GlusterFS volume as the backend data store for Glance for some time, recent development work has enabled an integrated deployment with Cinder, significantly increasing the performance for deploying VM images on GlusterFS volumes.


  • Cinder: A Cinder integration for the Grizzly release added an option for deploying live VM images on GlusterFS volumes. With recent contributions to the Havana release, you can now utilize the QEMU - libgfapi integration that was released in GlusterFS 3.4, greatly improving the performance of VM image management on GlusterFS.


  • Libgfapi: With the release of GlusterFS 3.4, the libgfapi client library is now the standard way to integrate applications with GlusterFS.

Following simple examples, Eric and John Mark will demonstrate:

  • How to deploy a GlusterFS-backed object storage solution, referencing when and why you should use this solution in conjunction with or in lieu of the Swift object storage implementation


  • How to access the same data via NFS, libgfapi, the GlusterFS client, and the Swift API


  • The power and flexibility of Libgfapi

In addition, they will provide a brief GlusterFS roadmap tour, discussing upcoming enhancements that will benefit OpenStack operators and developers.

Highly Available MySQL for OpenStack
The primary requirements for OpenStack based clouds (public, private or hybrid) is that they must be massively scalable, highly available and so on. MySQL is the basis for many of these OpenStack deployments since critical components like Keystone and Nova depend on it.

Attend this session for a technical overview of how to make MySQL highly available, using either the a) MySQL/Galera or b) DBRD/Pacemaker and c) MySQL cluster with HAProxy, keepalived and VRRP approaches. The presentation compares and contrasts the approaches and discusses some best practices and recommendations.

After attending this session, attendees will have a good perspective on making MySQL highly available for their OpenStack implemenations.

Ceph: The De Facto Storage Backend for OpenStack
For more than a year, Ceph has become increasingly popular and saw several deployments inside and outside OpenStack. The community and Ceph itself has greatly matured.

Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability from terabytes to exabytes. Ceph utilizes a novel placement algorithm (CRUSH), active storage nodes, and peer-to-peer gossip protocols to avoid the scalability and reliability problems associated with centralized controllers and lookup tables.

Since Grizzly, the Ceph integration gained some good additions: Havana definitely brought tons of awesome features. It also made the integration easier and definitely removed all the tiny hacks. All these things, will certainly encourage people to use Ceph in OpenStack. Ceph is excellent to back OpenStack platforms, no matter how big and complex the platform..

The main goal of the talk is to convince those of you who aren't already using Ceph as a storage backend for OpenStack to do so. I consider the Ceph technology to be the de facto storage backend for OpenStack for a lot of good reasons that I'll expose during the talk.

In this session, Sebastien Han from eNovance will go through several subjects such as (depends on the time that I'll get):

  • Quick Ceph overview (for those of you who are not familiar with it)

  • Quick state of the integration with OpenStack (general state and Havana's best additions)

  • Quick cinder drivers overview and comparisons

  • Building a Ceph cluster - general considerations

  • Use cases and design examples (hardware harware hardware)

  • Achieve HA with Ceph

  • Operations: backups, monitoring, upgrades

  • Tips and best practices

LDAP Integration for Private Clouds
LDAP integration in OpenStack can go way past just basic integration with Keystone. This presentation will discuss LDAP integration for private clouds for global users and groups, per-tenant local users and groups, per-tenant sudo, per-tenant autofs, and alternative methods for storing and using SSH keys. I'll also cover how to extend multi-tenancy information into other applications like Gerrit, puppet, and saltstack using LDAP. The majority of these examples use a common pattern which can be extended to most applications, I'll discuss the pattern and how you can use it in your own non-OpenStack applications.

Getting Your Blueprint Accepted Quicker: the VPNaaS Use Case
VPNaaS was a complex blueprint and back in April 2013, three or more blueprints were submitted on the same topic. It was difficult to come to a consensus since each submitter had different views and priorities. Despite of these difficulties, VPNaaS was agreed by all parties and scheduled for Havana a few weeks later.

Upstream University is a training program designed to help Free Software contributors get their feature and patches accepted quicker. It played a small but essential role, behind the scene, in the acceptance of the VPNaaS blueprint.

The story will be told, with testimonials from the people involved and a few anecdotes.

Real-Time Telemetry Processing: Metrics, Logging and Dashboards
While OpenStack projects provide a variety of ways to be notified of or extract telemetry-based metrics and usage information, today there exists no singular way of capturing both performance metrics and congruently logged information that correspond along the same time scale. In many cases it’s extremely valuable to have performance metrics and congruent log patterns collected, analyzed, and paired together in real-time.

This talk will explore the use of Riemann (http://riemann.io), a distributed systems monitor capable of handling tens of thousands of events per second, per core. Its abilities extend beyond simple metrics into service, state, tagging, descriptions (mayhap log messages), and can also scale beyond a single node; it is possible to construct a topology of Riemann servers that filter and pass events to each other for processing.

A separate web-based dashboard project has thus far been capable of receiving thousands of updates per second via websockets, and is a good demonstration of Riemann's capabilities.
Discussion and demo will illustrate how we can publish system-level metrics and Ceilometer-collected data to Riemann, while also collecting OpenStack log output--all while acting upon the following:

*specific log patterns
*service states
*inactivity detection
*activity rates for types of events
*metric rates, values, and percentiles

This data can be normalized, analyzed, graphed, used to trigger automated first-response/front-line actions, sent to other systems, retrieved through a simple API to be presented within other systems, presented in other dashboards, and so forth.

No previous experience with Riemann or Ceilometer is necessary for this session.

OpenStack Neutron Modular Layer 2 Plugin Deep Dive
This presentation introduces the Havana release's new Modular Layer 2 (ML2) plugin for OpenStack Neutron. The ML2 plugin is a community-driven framework allowing OpenStack Neutron to simultaneously utilize the variety of layer 2 networking technologies found in complex, real-world data centers. ML2 currently works with the Open vSwitch, Linux Bridge, and Hyper-V L2 agents, and is intended to replace and deprecate those agents' monolithic plugins. The ML2 plugin also works with SDN controllers and network hardware devices, and is designed to greatly simplify adding support for new L2 networking technologies into OpenStack Neutron.

In this session, Cisco and Red Hat representatives will:

  • Introduce the Modular Layer 2 (ML2) plugin for OpenStack Neutron

  • Provide an overview of ML2, discussing its design principles and detailing use case examples

  • Describe ML2's architecture and its driver APIs

  • Demonstrate an OpenStack deployment with ML2 utilizing multiple segmentation methods and multiple L2 networking mechanisms to show the power of the ML2 plugin

Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of ML2, the use cases it was designed to solve, how to deploy ML2 in an OpenStack Havana environment, and how existing Neutron deployments can migrate to ML2.

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.

Stack Debate: Understanding OpenStack’s Future
Which is more important to the future of OpenStack: A vibrant community of users who collectively steer the project toward features and technologies that matter most to them? Or, is the future of OpenStack best served through a logical series of sound engineering decisions that steer the project toward an architecture that’s ready for a new world of scale-out apps?

In this debate, moderated by Stefano Mafulli, Scott Sanchez and Randy Bias will take point and counterpoint. We’ll discuss the hype growth of OpenStack and debate whether or not the technology has kept up. Participants will hear differing points of view on how projects like Neutron, Iconic, refstack and tripleO are or are not taking OpenStack in the right direction. We’ll look at who is putting OpenStack into production and examine what that means for the larger community.

The debate is designed to draw participants out of their default points of view and challenge them to consider alternatives. As OpenStack continues it rapid growth, a continual re-examination of our thinking is critical.

Database Clusters as a Service in OpenStack: Integrated, Scalable, Highly Available and Secure
MySQL, MariaDB or Percona Server are the de-facto standard for OpenStack in terms of internal database and DBaaS. Today, MySQL is offered as a single instance, typically unintegrated in the IaaS layer, or in the best case it is provided with standard replication, but without full control on availability and failover. Last but not least, MySQL security is not combined with the security mechanisms in the cloud.

This presentation is an introduction to MariaDB for OpenStack, with an extended set of API that automates the provisioning, deployment and configuration of a all-active set of servers with Galera synchronous replication.

We will cover these topics:
    • MySQL, MariaDB and OpenStack - what is the current status
    • Deploying a MariaDB cluster in OpenStack: Glance & Nova integration, Red Dwarf compatibility and issues
    • Automatic provisioning using Juju, Puppet and Chef
    • DBA Daily operations and integration with Object and Block storage
    • High Availability components: replication and automatic failover, HA options
    • Security of the cluster: Keystone integration, database secure connections and tunnelling

Towards Truly Open and Commoditized Software Defined Networks In OpenStack
EIG/Bluehost has been successfully managing one of the largest Openstack environments with more than 17,000 compute nodes wherein over 20,000 instances are running for a year now. We were happy to share some of our experiences and findings at the Portland summit and are grateful to see that many of our concerns have been aggressively addressed in the Havana release. However, we think that there is still a significant lack of SDN functionality which is open source, free, and does not require specialized networking equipment. More specifically, one of the default Neutron plugins, OpenvSwitch, has not changed much since the Folsom release. In this talk, we would like to share how we have been developing our own SDN plugin for our production environment at Bluehost. We hope to share our experiences and designs with the community so that we can facilitate the discussion towards truly open and commoditized SDN for the masses.

OpenStack User Personas: 6 Months On
Earlier this year, Dave Neary presented the theory of personas to attendees of the OpenStack Summit in Portland. Attendees were excited about creating a set of personas for the OpenStack project, as they allow you to have a much clearer idea of your target audience, what their needs are, and how you can reach them. They also allow much easier communication around feature discussions, user interface design and marketing strategy.

Based on data from the user committee survey and user interviews, a personas working group is being created to answer the question: “Who uses OpenStack?” In this session Dave will return to present an initial set of OpenStack personas, discuss how they were created, and detail what conclusions we can draw from them.

On top of its object store, sheepdog provides elastic volume service (support of glance and cinder has been merged) and http service (in the development, plans to be Swift API compatible).

Sheepdog doesn't assume anything about kernel version and can work nicely with a xattr-supported file systems.



In this presentation, I'll concentrate on the technical aspects of sheepdog:

1. How sheepdog works internally regards of thin-provisioning volume, snapshot, clone and node managements.

2. What sheepdog can provides for Openstack.

3. Some performance numbers.

4. Demo of live sheepdog cluster

Neutron Hybrid Deployment and Performance Analysis
Summary:

PayPal case studies for SDN using Openstack Neutron is presented along with scale and performance data for various deployment environments.

PayPal and eBay have been in the forefront of deploying community version of Openstack for data center orchestration to deploy private hybrid clouds. There are multiple environments where Openstack and its various components have been deployed ranging from Developer/QA, staging, pre-production and production environments. There are myraids requirements for the various environments in addition to the financial and regulatory compliance.

In this presentation, the use cases for deploying Openstack Neutron and SDN at PayPal (an eBay Inc company) will be presented for the various environments based on the requirements along with performance analysis for overlay and flat networks. Challenges related to hybrid deployment involving both bridge and overlay modes will be examined in detail. A comparision of pros and cons of the various deployment methodologies will also be examined.

Description of the Presentation:

There are several environments in which Openstack with Neutron has been deployed at PayPal.

- Developement, QA and Staging

- Mergers & Acquisitions private community cloud

- Production Website

Multiple Neutron deployment strategies have been implemented (overlay and bridged) based on the unique requirements of the environment. Using overlay technologies (VXLAN, GRE, STT etc) gives flexibility in managing the address space and utilization of the compute resource, it does take additional compute cycles to process encapsulation and decapsulation of the overlayp headers in addition to introudcing penalty for latency. Bridging technolgies on the other hand tend to give better latency (comparable to the bare metal hypervisor) but in the process limit the cloud provider and tenant flexibility in addressing schemes and VM placements.

We have deployed both bridging and overlay schemes in our deployment. In some cases (Production), the hypervisor were configured to support both bridging and overlay. We call this scheme the hybrid scheme. This scheme inherits the advantages of both the technologies and provides for a flexibile deployment model that can address the needs of various environemtns. We show a scheme where the integration bridge(br-int) can trunk traffic to overlay bridge (br-tun) or a bonded ethernet bridge (br-bond0) based on the tenant requirements and its integration with Openstack.

The results of the throughput and latency analysis for

- Hypervisor to Hypervisor in the same rack (L2) and different racks (L3 hop)

- VM to VM in the same rack (L2) and different racks (L3 hop)

Will be presented along with conclusions.

Ceilometer+Heat=Alarming
Ceilometer is a tool that collects usage and performance data, while Heat orchestrates complex deployments on top of OpenStack. Heat aims to autoscale its deployments, scaling up when they're running hot and scaling back when idle.



Ceilometer can access decisive data and trigger the appropriate actions in Heat. The result of these two OpenStack projects meeting is value creation in the form of an alarming API in Ceilometer and its consumption in Heat.



In this session, we will detail how the two projects work together to deliver autoscaling, providing both background information and a technical deep dive.

Heat and Enterprise Application
Deployment of large enterprise applications is a complex problem. Such applications consist of numerous software components spread across multiple VMs with a variety of dependencies between them, and require a large number of configuration parameters to be specified. Pattern technologies such as OpenStack Heat help automate the deployment of distributed applications. However, Heat in its current form only has limited supported for software orchestration to address the aforemenionted issues. Furthermore, especially for application components initial deployment is just the begining and more orchestration is necessary throughout the comlete lifecycle of an application to consider aspects such as high availability, storage and network configurations.

In this session we will discuss automated deployment and maintenance of enterprise applications using OpenStack Heat. Our talk will foucs on the following issues and how they can be addressed using base Heat capabilities together with extensions to the Heat engine.

1. Enterprise application deployment:

1.1. complete declarative specification of application model;
1.2. cross component dependencies; and
1.3. software stack configuration and coordination.
2. Enterprise application maintainance:

2.1. virtual machine high availability;
2.2. storage; and
2.3. network.

Panel: Putting the PaaS in OpenStack with Heat, Docker, & Solum!
PaaS technologies are constantly evolving especially when it comes to OpenStack. We all know that this is a fast moving space, and it's often hard to keep up with the latest technologies and project announcements. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) helps solve one of the key issues for OpenStack deployments - how to get people, applications and services working on OpenStack out of the box and to ensure that the “unboxing” experience is as seamless and painless as possible.

This group of panelists from OpenStack, OpenShift, Docker & Solum projects will help you navigate the latest innovations in technology helping to bring PaaS to OpenStack.

The OpenShift PaaS community has already “adopted” Heat, OpenStack's orchestration engine, and delivered a set of Heat templates for deploying, managing and auto-scaling OpenShift on any OpenStack distribution today.

Now, the OpenShift community is now embracing & collaborating with the Docker project, a new innovative approach to container isolation and packaging which has the potential to both simplify our cartridges in OpenShift and increase user application portability across all cloud platforms and is gaining widespread traction.

You might have also seen the announcement around another new community project called "Solum" launched by Rackspace that's bringing together a group of like-minded companies and individuals to figure out the approach to application lifecycle management that makes the most sense for OpenStack.  At Red Hat, we tremendous potential to align our PaaS approach with this project.  Being Red Hat, we love community driven innovation, and so we’re excited to jump in and help move this effort forward.

This panel provide lessons learned at Red Hat on deploying OpenShift Origin, RedHat's Open Source Platform as a Service on OpenStack using Heat, and discuss the road ahead for delivering PaaS & Application Life Cycle management on OpenStack.

Bring your questions and we'll bring you upto speed in all the latest technology initiatives that are helping "Put the PaaS in OpenStack".

About OpenShift:

OpenShift Origin PaaS project is backed by the fastest growing open-source community of developers, cloud architects, devops, and end users intent on creating the next generation of PaaS and ensuring that the tools for deploying, managing & scaling it for OpenStack are freely available. http://openshift.com

Neutron Network Namespaces and IPtables: Technical Deep Dive
Networking with OpenStack Neutron requires a different mindset around IP networking than conventional physical topologies. Understanding Linux namespaces is critical to troubleshooting Openstack Neutron networking and understanding of neutron network topology. A key element of this shift is use of Linux network namespaces, introduced in Folsom.

What more, without a thorough understanding of how namespaces organize and abstract L3 routers, DHCP servers within the network and subnets spaces, network-induced downtime can be difficult to resolve.

Namespaces enables multiple instances of a routing table to co-exist within the same Linux box (like virtual routing and forwarding (vrf) in routers), within the network and subnets spaces, per tenant. It introduces a whole realm of networking flexibility, which can be critical in production Openstack deployments -- but can also contradicts the logic applied by experienced IP network admins and lead troubleshooting off a cliff.

This technical deep dive into Openstack Neutron Namespaces and IPtables wil give attendees will get a clear understanding of these building blocks of OpenStack L3 and DHCP agents. Wel show how to go about troubleshooting L3 issues, and how to apply this more robust networking abstraction in distributed OpenStack environments.

Making Your Apps Cloud Aware
Cloud Management used to be about launching servers and monitoring them, potentially autoscaling them. This was all good, but it not nearly enough! We need to make applications Cloud Aware! The idea is that your applications need be ready to be deployed in radically different contexts, and they need to understand the context theye running in.

In this talk for application infrastructure developers (aka devops), we explain what is required to adapt traditional (or hastily built) cloud application infrastructure into Cloud Aware applications, so you fully leverage the power of OpenStack.

Bringing together Linux-based Switches, VLANs, and Neutron
Many OpenStack deployments use VLANs to separate traffic into different virtual networks. Existing solutions require either that all VLANs must be trunked to every host or the use of vendor-supplied plugins paired with specific (proprietary) hardware.

Cumulus Networks and Metacloud will be presenting a plugin (targeted for inclusion in Icehouse) that allows Neutron to extend the configuration of VLANs to Linux based switches such that individual VLANs are only trunked to ports and hosts that need them. The use of Linux based switches allows for rapid prototyping of advanced configurations in VMs or on real hardware. We will be demonstrating this plugin controlling bare-metal hardware-accelerated Linux switches running Cumulus Linux for production ready deployments.

Additionally, we will discuss an L3 mode, that has similar functionality but uses entirely L3 concepts. The discussion will include solutions to issues around connectivity, security, mobility, and public IP access.
