OpenStack Summit Sydney: Surveys conducted by five organizations, including the OpenStack Foundation User Survey, document acceleration of OpenStack adoption across industries and regions, and attest to the open source software’s “essential” role in multi-cloud environments, NFV and IoT/edge computing. The OpenStack Foundation’s tenth User Survey was released today at the OpenStack Summit in Sydney. Nearly… Continue reading OpenStack Adoption, Deployments Surge as Enterprises Increasingly Favor Multi-Cloud Strategies
Ask the Experts: Are Containers a Threat to OpenStack? This all-star panel discussion will discuss and debate if containers are a threat to OpenStack. This panel discussion will be recorded as a “Speaking in Tech” Podcast which is distributed by Europe’s largest tech publication, The Register.
The conventional approach to deploying applications on OpenStack uses virtual machines (usually KVM) backed by block devices (usually Ceph RBD). As interest increases in container-based application deployment models like Docker, it is worth looking at what alternatives exist for combining compute and storage (both shared and non-shared). Mapping RBD block devices directly to host kernels… Continue reading Keeping OpenStack storage trendy with Ceph and containers
EMC XtremIO all flash array is known for it’s high throughput and fast IOPS. ClusterHQ Flocker integrates EMC XtremIO with Docker persistence storage and brings all the goodies of flash with resiliency. The video demo demonstrates the details of how this can be achieved by using a plugin developed by EMC and ClusterHQ.
Docker containers are an ideal platform for the Big Data analytics use case because of their unique security and performance advantages. Big Data work loads typically use distributed file systems to provide shared access to both input and output data sets. OpenStack Manila is an excellent way to manage distributed file systems in the Cloud… Continue reading Big Data Analytics and Docker: The Thrilla in Manila
emccode.github.io This video covers the basics of Docker and container technology. Produced by Jonas Rosland and Matt Cowger.
Docker has accelerated development of portable services on cloud due to its slick approach to component lifecycle management. But connecting up a bunch of Docker containers as well-behaved aggregate services in the cloud can be more complex and brittle than most Docker users realize. In this talk, we’ll show how you can take a Kubernetes… Continue reading Docker on OpenStack with Kubernetes
Openstack provides a really good and robust infrastructure as a service however doing Platform as a Service is the next challenge on the cloud architecture. Apache Mesos is a highly available resource management software for datacenters which can run on top of any cloud, physical server or container. Google Kubernetes is a cluster containter management… Continue reading Platform as a Service (Kubernetes/Mesos + Openstack)
