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.

Automate Windows images on OpenStack
This is going to be a full hands-on workshop about all the best practices, tips and tricks on how to deploy Windows in OpenStack, starting from Windows Server 2003 up to the forthcoming 2012 R2.

On the Hypervisor side, we'll provide extensive KVM and Hyper-V examples, but Xen and XenServer will be covered as well!

The workshop will be heavily scenario driven, with demostrations about how to automate instances with:



  • Windows images for KVM with VirtIO drivers and Cloudbase-Init

  • Active Directory and domain membership

  • SMB File Servers

  • Remote Desktop Servers

  • IIS web servers, including load balancing and reverse proxying

  • SQL Server 2008 / 2008 R2 / 2012

  • Exchange Server 2010 / 2013

  • Sharepoint 2010 / 2013

  • VDI, including accelerated GPU!

  • Automatic per tenant Windows updates with WSUS

  • How to secure networking, including public and private tenant networks

  • Running custom PowerShell user_data scripts



We'll have answers for all the common questions:



  • How can I set the administrator's password?

  • What about VirtIO drivers on KVM?

  • Which hypervisor should I choose for Windows? KVM, Hyper-V, XenServer, ESXi, etc

  • How can I tell Nova to use KVM for Linux images and Hyper-V for Windows?

  • How does the Windows licensing work in OpenStack?

  • How much RAM, CPU, disk do I need for a given Windows image?

  • What about Windows 7/8/8.1 clients?

  • How can I do all the above with Chef / Puppet / SaltStack?





From Cloudbase Solutions, the makers of Cloudbase-Init and mantainers of the Hyper-V Nova driver and Neutron plugin! :-)

OpenStack Deployment with Chef Workshop


Want to learn more about using Chef to deploy OpenStack and manage infrastructure on top of it, but not sure where to start? This in-depth, hands-on deployment session will cover the Chef and OpenStack ecosystem and how to get started with the Chef cookbooks in the StackForge repositories. We'll cover the current Grizzly OpenStack resources and the related cookbooks and content in the Chef community.

Topics covered will include:

* Deployment configuration and techniques

* StackForge repository code walkthrough

* Cookbook development and testing

* Deploying and managing infrastructure on OpenStack with the knife-openstack plugin

* Documentation

The session is intended for folks already familiar with Chef and interested in deploying OpenStack. This is intended to be a very interactive session with many questions and guided code and deployment walkthroughs. Attendees are expected to provide their own laptops capable of running a single-node OpenStack virtual machine.

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.

OpenStack Networking Hands-on Lab
Users will get access to a live OpenStack + Neutron setup and be able to walk through key neutron deployment use cases, with members of the Neutron core development team available to provide guidence and answer questions.

At the past two OpenStack conferences we presented a similar Neutron hands on lab led by several members of the Neutron core team and it was standing room only. We'd like to run another session this time, incorporating lessons learned from the previous sesion and also including new Neutron capabilities introduced in the Havana release.

Demonstrated features will include:

  • private L2 networks using tunnels rather than vlans. Including support for overlapping IPs.

  • L3 + NAT via neutron logical routers

  • Firewall as a Service

  • VPN as a Service

  • Loadbalancer as a Service

  • and more!

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.
