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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
