Amongst the numerous submissions for speaking slots at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver in May, you’ll find a select number of submissions from my team:
Multi-node OpenStack development on single system (Speakers: James Page, Corey Bryant)
Corey has been having some fun hacking on enabling deployment from source in the OpenStack Juju Charms for Ubuntu – come and hear about what we’ve done so far and how we’re trying to enable a multi-node OpenStack deployment from source in a single node using KVM and LXC container, with devstack style reloads!
Scaling automated testing of Ubuntu OpenStack (Speakers: James Page, Ryan Beisner, Liam Young)
The Ubuntu OpenStack team have a ever increasing challenge of supporting testing of numerous OpenStack versions on many different Ubuntu releases; we’ll be covering how we’ve used OpenStack itself to help us scale-out our testing infrastructure to support these activities, as well as some of the technologies and tools we use to deploy and test OpenStack itself.
OpenStack HA Nirvana on Ubuntu (Speaker: James Page)
We’ve been able to deploy OpenStack in Highly Available configurations using Juju and Ubuntu since the Portland Summit in 2013 – since then we have evolved and battle-tested our HA reference architecture into a rock-solid solution to ensure availability of cloud services to end users. This session will cover the Ubuntu OpenStack HA reference architecture in detail – we might even manage a demo as well!
Testing Openstack with Openstack (Speaker: Ryan Beisner)
Ryan Beisner has been leading Ubuntu OpenStack QA for Canonical since 2014; he’ll be deep-diving on the challenges faced in ensuring the quality of Ubuntu OpenStack and how we’ve leveraged the awesome tool set we have in Ubuntu for deploying and testing OpenStack to support testing of OpenStack both virtually and on bare-metal 100’s of times a day.
also of interest, and building on and around the base technology that the Ubuntu OpenStack team delivers:
OpenStack IPv6 Support (Speaker: Edward Hope-Morley)
Ed’s team have made great in-roads into enabling Ubuntu OpenStack deployments in IPv6 only environments; he’ll be discussing the challenges encountered and how the team overcame them as well as setting out some suggested improvements that would make IPv6 support a first class citizen for OpenStack.
Autopiloting OpenStack (Speaker: Dean Henrichsmeyer)
Dean will be talking about how the Ubuntu OpenStack Autopilot pulls together all of the various technologies in Ubuntu (MAAS, Juju and OpenStack) to fully automate deployment and scale-out of complex OpenStack deployments on Ubuntu.
Containers for Dummies (Speaker: Tycho Andersen)
Tycho promises an enlightening and fun talk about containers introducing all the basic technologies in Linux that support containers – all done through the medium of pictures of cats!
