Hybrid cloud represents the next evolution in enterprise cloud architecture and enables businesses to enjoy the best of both worlds: infrastructure resource elasticity with the flexibility of a public cloud, and the security, control and regulatory compliance of a private cloud. As ideal as hybrid cloud may sound, it still can face challenges from both… Continue reading Deploying a Hybrid Cloud with OpenStack: Dynamic Service Automation
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.
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?
This session will discuss considerations for setting up and using a site-to-site (network-to-network) VPN connection from your on-premise datacenter that is running OpenStack Juno to an off-premise private cloud environment, running on OpenStack Icehouse. Also we’ll describe the openstack control plane network traffic and discuss the traffic that flows across the VPN connection. We’ll also… Continue reading Network Connectivity in a Hybrid OpenStack Cloud
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
One of our most requested features from our users has consistently been self-service for DNS records. Although Designate is still in incubation, DNSaaS was a key piece for us to get in place for our users. This talk will cover our experiences from initial evaluation to operating Designate in a production environment. Topics covered will… Continue reading Getting DNSaaS to Production with Designate
Chargeback and rating are currently lacking in OpenStack. If you wish to define/charge costs to your clients’ cloud usages or yours, you’ll need to develop your own tools. CloudKitty is addressing these use cases by adding an highly modular rating engine to you OpenStack cloud. In this talk we will introduce CloudKitty, an open source… Continue reading CloudKitty an Open Source rating and chargeback component for OpenStack
Integrating OpenStack into an enterprise environment is challenging. A typical enterprise compute environment features tight security control; limited user privileges; and a slew of existing tools and systems for management, inventory, etc. In this talk, we will describe our modest attempt to integrate a multi-site OpenStack deployment into the compute infrastructure of a quantitative investment… Continue reading Building blocks for seamless integration of OpenStack into complex enterprise environment
