In this session, I will correlate an example multi-tier application network architecture with Neutron and demonstrate how beautifully Neutron builds the topology, combining multiple open source components. From a high level, you’ll learn about the process in a network deployment of an example multi-tier application—composed of a web server cluster, application server cluster, and database… Continue reading How Neutron builds network topology for your multi-tier application?
Running Real Telco Applications on Top of an NFV Platform – Opportunities and Challenges
NFV becomes real with the migration of actual VNFs into the cloud. In this session, we will discuss the opportunities and added value in running a sample suite of applications – specifically EPC – on top on an NFV platform using Openstack. The inherent flexibility of NFV allows for operational efficiencies such as dynamic creation… Continue reading Running Real Telco Applications on Top of an NFV Platform – Opportunities and Challenges
AppFormix: Control Application Performance from the Infrastructure
Controlling the performance of your applications in real-time and maximizing the efficiency of virtual infrastructure within OpenStack and Docker Environments is the key to boosting IT ROI. In this demo, we will show how application performance and maximizing infrastructure utilization can exist in perfect harmony.…Full session details here:
Deliver Cloud-ready Applications to End-users Using the Glance Artifact Repository
Deliver Cloud-ready Applications to End-users Using the Glance Artifact Repository As an application developer targeting the Openstack ecosystem you often face challenges delivering your software. Large clouds spanning multiple data centers, multi-tenant environments, and complex distribution scenarios – it is easy to get lost there, and hard to ensure that your application finds its way… Continue reading Deliver Cloud-ready Applications to End-users Using the Glance Artifact Repository
Building a Secure Multi-tenant Cloud for SaaS Applications: Challenges and Lessons Learned
Creating a secure multi-tenant cloud requires proper tenant isolation and access control, operational efficiency through automation and self-service provisioning, and on-demand service creation with dynamic resource scaling across key network and security functions. Delivering all of these requires a move to optimized software abstractions and policy-based architectures as existing infrastructures lack the means to support… Continue reading Building a Secure Multi-tenant Cloud for SaaS Applications: Challenges and Lessons Learned
Moving Enterprise Apps to OpenStack-based Clouds
Complex multi-tier enterprise applications assume reliable hardware and typically have dependencies on underlying operating systems, hardware configurations, and network topologies. The boundary between one application or service and another is often unclear. These traits make many enterprise applications difficult to move entirely to a public cloud.
Building applications using the OpenStack SDK
In Paris, the OpenStack SDK was starting to take shape and we offered a look into why it’s being created and how it’s being done, including a few small examples. Now we’re able to build real applications on it and see the advantage first hand of bringing a better user experience to developers building software… Continue reading Building applications using the OpenStack SDK
Enterprise Strategies for Cloud-Aware Apps
Enterprise IT needs more applications designed for cloud in order to take advantage of private cloud implementations and more efficiently use public cloud solutions. Leveraging the unique benefits of the cloud requires a specialized approach to application architecture. The right design enables business agility, massive scaling, ability to burst, and high resiliency. Plus, it promotes… Continue reading Enterprise Strategies for Cloud-Aware Apps
