Cloud Automation in OpenStack — Turn Up The Heat!
Limited Capacity seats available
You need to have the Full Access Pass to register for this session.
Hosting your applications and services in a public cloud, it is common for them to grow to fairly significant complexity. At the same time, it is absolutely vital that you maintain scalability and reproducibility for all your deployments. In OpenStack clouds, you can easily meet these requirements with OpenStack Heat, the built-in cloud orchestration service. Heat allows you to create arbitrarily complex environments including virtual servers, networks, firewalls, and even load balancers, and scale them up and down as your business requires. In this highly interactive tutorial, we will walk you through the basics of Heat, and show you how to spin up complex application environments in no time.

Prerequesites: You will need to bring just a laptop with a web browser.

Everything You Need to Know about Using the OpenStack API
Limited Capacity seats available
You need to have the Full Access Pass to register for this session.
OpenStack's REST API is rather powerful, but there are many parts of it that are at best understood mostly via tribal lore and stories around a campfire. In this session we're going to take a few seemingly basic operations, such as booting a VM, and dive deep into each bit of the API to fully understand how all the pieces hang together.

By the end you should *fully* understand client configuration, the difference between openrc and clouds.yaml, authentication, the service catalog and version discovery. You should be able to use that knowledge to poke at any OpenStack service API. Depending on time we should be able to dive in to at least one or two confusing scenarios of your own.

This is a super deep dive into a portion of the OpenStack API that most of the time is hidden, and then an application of that to geting stuff done. If you've ever been confused about how an interaction works, what's really going on or how to figure out what broke with your application, this session is for you.

Note: This session is not about writing Heat templates. If you want to do that, Florian has a session going on at the same time you should check out.

Prerequisites: You will need to bring a laptop that can run python code - and on which you can install python libraries. Examples/exercises will use curl and/or python but should be applicable to other languages.

Designing Ceph clusters is hard. Throw OpenStack into the mix, and it gets even harder. There are many different ways in which a Ceph clusters can be configured. Same goes for selecting the right hardware. This session will give you a solid start into the world of Ceph-based storage (in the context of OpenStack).

You will learn all the lessons learned by us the hard way when operating our two Ceph clusters over the past several years including all necessary recommendations on picking the right hardware for Ceph, as well as some tips on optimising the deployed Ceph cluster for OpenStack.

During the session will concentrate on what to consider when creating your very own Ceph cluster, what are the common problems with Ceph to be aware of, what is benchmarking and profiling Ceph, what to know about fat node vs thin node, what’s the best SSD for journal (Spoiler alert: one does not exist, here’s why) and, the last but not least, what is the sweet spot between storage density, price, and performance.

The session will be a good blend of high level information combined with various useful to know technical details which we’ve learned the hard way, so that you don’t have to.

From zero to hero: how to get your private cloud project to take off
In this talk you ‘ll learn how to get your Openstack private cloud project going from zero to a solid private cloud implementation. We’ll cover everything from hardware specs to deployment methods, operations and lessons learned.

Introduction

As any IT project clear goals are important, so we’ll start by discussing the biggest pitfalls of Private cloud projects.

Hardware specs

You private cloud will need some hardware to run on, I’ll present you a standard Openstack hardware configuration/bill of material for different capacity targets: what to buy, how many and how much it costs: servers + storage + network.

Deployment methods

The next step is to setup Openstack on your new hardware, here we’ll discuss and compare different options: vendor distributions, Kola (Openstack on Containers), Fuel, Openstack Ansible, …

Operations

Now that your Openstack deployment is up and running, let’s cover monitoring and capacity management for Openstack: What to monitor? How to update your capacity management processes for Infrastructure as a Service?

OpenStack maintenance - Finding the needle in the haystack
Many services, nodes, configuration files, log files - due to this complexity it can be cumbersome to uniquely identify the root cause for problems in a timely manner. We’re going to look at common problems in OpenStack environments, their root cause, and options for efficient operation.

OpenStack maintenance - Finding the needle in the haystack

OpenStack has come to stay for good. Many companies leverage the advantages of having a private cloud: fewer costs, more control, no vendor lock-in. In addition, you get a better understanding of how cloud platforms work. However, you also need to take care of operations and maintenance. OpenStack troubleshooting is a nontrivial task and takes a lot time, knowledge, and experience. Hundreds of log files are written by numerous services with several configuration files to countless virtual and physical machines - the possibilities for errors seem endless. Manual root cause analysis is like looking for the needle in the haystack. We’re going to look at common problems in OpenStack environments, analyze their root cause, and discuss options for effective and efficient operation and troubleshooting.

Participants of this session will learn
  • Basically, OpenStack is a micro-service application and therefore also needs to be monitored
  • Insight into what is important to monitor in an OpenStack environment – Resource utilization of physical and virtual machines – Health of supporting services (MySQL, RabbitMQ, Memcached) – OpenStack service availability – Response times of OpenStack services – Lead times of common OpenStack operations
  • A brief overview of monitoring tools for OpenStack
  • Common error patterns in OpenStack environments and how to identify and fix them

Container technologies are now available on every major public and private cloud platform. So why are OpenStack users adopting containers 3x faster than the rest of the enterprise market?

The market for container software solutions will soon approach $3bn and is growing at 40% a year, largely driven by the promise of portability, micro-services based cloud-native apps and a growing focus on DevOps. Container technologies are now available on every major public and private cloud platform. So why are OpenStack users adopting containers 3x faster than the rest of the enterprise market?

In this session, we’ll explore why containers are such a hot topic and why OpenStack is the ideal platform for developing, orchestrating and running containers for CI/CD and DevOps.

Troubles and Tribulations Running Production OpenStack Environments
Running OpenStack in commercial production environment is a non-trivial task. Running it at scale, in geographically distributed environments is quite hard. We’ll share some hard fought experiences from running our production OpenStack environment since the last 8 years.

City Network AB together with OP5 AB will share some insights in the daily challenges of planning, deploying, upgrading and servicing a geographically distributed, multi-data center OpenStack production environment. We’ll go over a few specific problems we’ve had, how we responded and what we learned, the post-mortem we conducted and what we could’ve done better. We’ll also talk about what tools we use to support, monitor and trouble-shoot our environment and what we’d like to see.

We’ll also talk about where we see our environment going forward and the challenges to monitor, visualise and react to streaming metrics environments at scale. We’ll touch upon on how OpenStack stacks up from a traditional sys-admin perspective.

This session will be a good blend of high level information, some hard-fought lessons from the field but also a good pointers about where we see production OpenStack deployments going in the future.

Bringing Open Source Communities Together: Cross Community CI
Continuous Integration principles and practices are enablers for open source in order to achieve the sustainable development and collaboration. But this is not without its flaws. This talk explains the reasons for Cross Community CI between OpenStack and the adjacent communities and its benefits.

In many applications of Open Source Software, components developed by independent communities are tested only within the context of the corresponding communities without integrating the components from other communities. This results in very limited or nonexistent end-to-end testing and causes problems for the seamless interworking of these components when they are attempted to be integrated with each other.

OPNFV has created a comprehensive CI that was originally based on the consumption of stable artifacts. We will present a recent extension of the OPNFV CI which was established by the close collaboration between OpenStack, OPNFV, and OpenDaylight communities; Cross Community CI (XCI).

XCI enables timely verification of ongoing upstream development work in a full OPNFV system context. The latest versions of the upstream components can be integrated and tested on baremetal, significantly cutting the time it takes to introduce new features, identify bugs and issue fixes. Apart from deploying and testing from master, OPNFV XCI enables the patchset verification, providing better visibility and significantly faster feedback on potential system level issues to OPNFV itself and the upstream communities it works with even before the patches are submitted to master.

We will also share our experiences we have gained while we worked on establishing the XCI, the contributions we made to the upstream communities infrastructures, and the tools we reused from the upstream communities such as bifrost, openstack-ansible, ansible-opendaylight.

The XCI activity has already started changing how the communities work with each other when it comes to CI/CD, DevOps, and Infrastructure in order to make things faster and get communities even closer to each other. This talk looks into collaborative development from different perspective in order to increase the awareness and aims to achieve real CD & DevOps way of working in Open Source.

Image Build as a Service: Why It Makes Sense to Build Your Own Cloud Images

What if the community or vendor provided cloud images do not fit your requirements?

Like when your cloud needs to offer

Ø  high performance drivers

Ø  additional security hardening

Ø  support for different hypervisors

Ø  images with latest available patches

Ø  cloud-specific pre-configuration (e.g. repositories)


For our public cloud "Open Telekom Cloud" (OTC) we decided to build our own images. Utilizing open-source tools like OpenBuildService, kiwi, DiskImageBuilder, OpenStack tools, and build public images, optimized to run on OTC. 

This includes fully automated build, testing and publishing of the images. Following this approach we are able to adapt changes fast, including security patches, hardening and customization.

The image configurations are signed and published along with the resulting images. 

This session presents how we build images and how you could build upon this work to set up your own factory, maybe extending it to build container images as well?

Connecting Kubernetes and OpenStack with simple/scalable L3 networking and Network Policy

As OpenStack embraces Kubernetes as the container platform of choice, it becomes imperative to connect VM’s and containers seamlessly.

This talk outlines Project Calico’s pure-L3 network approach combined with declarative (Kubernetes) Network Policy to interconnect OpenStack with Kubernetes.

As the OpenStack community embraces Kubernetes as the container orchestration platform of choice, it becomes imperative to seamlessly connect applications across VM’s and containers.

Early OpenStack Neutron plugin implementations approached network isolation by creating network overlays on top of convoluted paths through vswitches, bridges and L3-agents on compute nodes, along with coarse security groups. In contrast, Kubernetes and other container orchestrators provide rich network policy constructs while assuming IP connectivity between nodes and containers/pods, facilitating simple, scalable network design and isolation with network policy.

This talk explores a pure-L3 network approach combined with declarative (Kubernetes) Network Policy, espoused by Project Calico, to interconnect OpenStack with Kubernetes across 3 scenario’s: 1. Kubernetes alongside OpenStack (with application instances in either) 2. Kubernetes running within OpenStack VM’s 3. OpenStack as a (containerized) application orchestrated by Kubernetes
