The SUSE team Zooms “Down Under” for OpenStack Summit 2017


The world runs on open infrastructure and twice annually, over 1,000 companies from  60 different countries come together to run live demos, share OpenStack use cases, host free workshops and trainings and most importantly…network and meet new people.  What event is this?  OpenStack Summit…and if you are developing your open source strategy—or considering how it can help your business—there’s no better way to connect with IT decision makers, developers and operators than the OpenStack Summit. And even better?  The SUSE team will be traveling down under to meet you there!

At OpenStack Summit, you can expect to learn about the mix of open technologies building the modern infrastructure stack, including OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, and more. Wondeirng what can you expect from SUSE this week?  Take a look at our line-up of sessions below and be sure to stop by booth C5 to meet our experts!

Trends in Software Defined Infrastructure – Lightning Talk

11:35am – 11:45am: Level 2 – Parkside 2 Foyer

Alan Clark

In this panel moderated by Alan Clark (SUSE CTO Office) and SUSE’s Distinguished Engineers and Architects discuss the technology and trends in Software-Defined-Infrastructure and convergence between OpenStack Cloud, Containers as a Service Platform, and Enterprise Storage.

SDI, DevOps and Containers – OpenStack has all the bases covered

12:15pm-12:35pm: Level 2 – Marketplace Demo Theater (in the Gallery)

TR Bosworth & Mark Darnell

In this session, SUSE will share insights into how containers and DevOps are fueling the transformation of IT and why so many organizations see OpenStack as a vital part of their SDI and cloud strategy for the future.

Demystifying Identity Federation

2:20pm – 3:00pm: Level 3 Convention Center – Cockle Bay Room 2

Samuel de Medeiros Queiroz & Colleen Murphy

This talk will review the core concepts and technologies behind federated keystone, then dive into how to configure it, from registering the identity and service providers to the attribute mappings, highlighting common issues found in the process and concluding with a live debugging session. We’ll also discuss recent improvements and features as well as our future goals for making keystone federation easier and more useful.

Kubernetes Stateful Sets using OpenStack Cinder

5:05pm-5:15pm: Level 2 – Parkside 2 Foyer

Nikhil Manchanda

This presentation will examine how we can create stateful distributed applications in Kubernetes using OpenStack Cinder volumes. We will identify various design elements to consider while authoring applications and how these elements enable critical state preservation across pod failures. We will also delve into the details of Stateful Sets (introduced in Kubernetes 1.3), and how we can auto-provision Cinder volumes using Kubernetes Storage Classes to design stateful Kubernetes applications seamlessly.

SUSE Two-Day Training: OpenStack Administration – Prepare for the Certified Exams (Day 1)

9:00am – 6:00pm: Level 4 – C4.3

Ron Terry & Ross Brunson

Neutron – Project Update

9:50am-10:30am: Level 3 Convention Center – C3.2

Armando Migliaccio & Miguel Lavalle (Huawei)

Join the Neutron core contributors for a project update reflecting current developments in the Queens cycle and discussion of future development activity.

OpenStack Networking Routed Networks New Features

10:50am – 11:30am

Swaminathan Vasudevan & Miguel Lavalle (Huawei)

This presentation will cover the progress that has been made adding functionality to Routed Networks during the Ocata and Pike cycles and the plans for Queens. Specifically, we will cover the progress made adding integration with the Nova scheduler using the placement API, DVR fast path and support for floating ips.  This presentation will include a live demo.

Well Done! You have built your cloud, but what now?

12:15pm-12:35pm: Level 2 – Marketplace Demo Theater (in the Gallery)

Simon Briggs

Join us to discuss how SUSE does this and how we also help organizations keep these services running and optimized. With OpenStack based Clouds hitting production to deliver critical services the headache of “Day Two” cloud management is causing operator’s sleepless nights. OpenStack Monasca gives visibility to the many disparate moving parts of your cloud. In contrast to other monitoring tools, it has a scalable architecture so is the tool of choice in cloud environments.

Proactive Monitoring for OpenStack

5:00pm – 5:40pm: – Level 3 Convention Center – Cockle Bay Room 2

Derek So

In this session, we will discuss the guideline, tools and options that you could use in defining your monitoring strategy.  A demo will be included in this talk and at the end of the session, you will learn how to leverage all the open source technologies to monitor your OpenStack proactively.

SUSE Two-Day Training: OpenStack Administration – Prepare for the Certified Exams (Day 2)

9:00am – 6:00pm: – Level 4 – C4.3

Ron Terry & Ross Brunson

Neutron network trunks for VMs, containers and bare metal nodes

11:00am-11:10am: Level 2 – Parkside 2 Foyer

Armando Migliaccio & Kevin Benton (Mirantis)

This presentation will introduce a networking feature called ‘trunk’, which address use cases where a workload needs to connect to a number of neutron networks by means of a single logical port. The implications of this on OpenStack networking and OpenStack compute and their relationship are profound and this presentation will go over the design challenges, the community effort to implement the feature as well as the step-by-step process to use trunks effectively in your OpenStack cloud.

Communication through Code: How to get work done upstream

4:30pm – 5:10pm: Level 3 Convention Center – C3.6

Colleen Murphy

New code contributors may find the delay involved and effort required to get a patch merged to be patience-testing, but luckily there are steps that code contributors can take to make the process more efficient, the core of which is effective communication with code reviewers. Writing effective commit messages, using tests to demonstrate the necessity of a change, and having a productive dialog in various communications channels will all help to bring everyone to the same page so that patches can move forward. Attendees will learn how to make patches easy to review – and therefore easy to merge.
