Federated Cloud Ecosystems

The computing needs of today's world are very diverse and a handful of cloud service providers cannot handle these needs. We are seeing an emergence of federated cloud ecosystems with many hosting providers, datacenters and telecom companies transforming to a cloud model. Projects like OpenStack accelerate this evolution. With federation comes the problem of discovery and a marketplace for trading various services. In this talk, I am going to highlight the evolution of federated cloud ecosystems and discuss how we can address the issue of discovery and marketplace.

Cloudnomics Revisited: The Cost of VMs at Scale

Much of the appeal for enterprise IT managers to introduce cloud computing within their organizations is to take advantage of the efficiencies that automation and self-service can bring to infrastructure. But the real economics of private cloud can be surprising.


Joshua McKenty, one of the founders of OpenStack, will discuss some of the surprising realities of cloud costs, including: 

  • How little power efficiency REALLY matters (and where it does)  
  • How much your cloud costs are dominated by reference architecture 
  • How few servers you need to be running to save money by building a private cloud

Enabling the Services Driven Cloud

It is well accepted that the cloud is built on open source software and developed and promulgated through open standards. The next evolution in the cloud will be in the growth of open source application services that can easily be deployed and migrate from private, public and hybrid architectures seamlessly where the service does not know or care where it is being developed or deployed as the need arises. Open and ubiquitous services with 'friction-free' delivery models that can match the pace of development and scale of the cloud will be the ones most adopted by users. Ubuntu is the #1 platform for the cloud and provides tools to build an OpenStack cloud and provision these next generation services quickly and efficiently to get immediate value from your cloud investment.

  • Reliable - replicated, distributed, with no single point of failure
  • Snapshots

This session will cover the current status of the integration, and discuss the technical implications and the advantages of block storage within the OpenStack cloud operating system.  For example, OpenStack Compute instances would benefit from Ceph block devices especially if the instances are running applications that require a database.


This advancement rounds out OpenStack storage offering and strengthens the position of the open source cloud operating system as an alternative to the AWS product line.

You've Deployed OpenStack, Now What?

You've deployed OpenStack, now what?

You figured out how to build and deploy an OpenStack cloud, but how should you manage it? Enterprises are looking to shape their internal infrastructure capacity into a cloud platform using leading open source technologies. Critical to the success of cloud adoption in the enterprise is the ability for users to access and manage their cloud infrastructure just like they would any other server resource in the company; your complete cloud management solution is ScaleXtreme. ScaleXtreme allows customers to provision and manage servers on OpenStack-based virtualization systems in the public cloud, private cloud, or in hybrid deployments with systems spanning both public and private clouds for free. In this session, attendees will learn how to manage an OpenStack cloud using ScaleXtreme and learn how to manage servers running across multiple providers, geographies, and platforms.

Building Products Based on OpenStack

Sameer will discuss the work that we are doing at Citrix to create products based on OpenStack, and how we look at the emergence of the commercial market for OpenStack.  He will talk about our recent acquisition of cloud.com, another team that created commercial products from open-source cloud infrastructure, and how we are using that group and the technology that they created to accelerate our work on OpenStack. Sameer will talk about what we will be doing for the Essex release, and the points of collaboration with the OpenStack community around API development and platform features.

Xen and OpenStack

Xen.org has several initiatives that aim to have an impact onOpenStack adoption and feature richness. This talk will include adiscussion on the Xen Cloud Platform (XCP), the XCP toolstack (XAPI)port to popular Linux distributions, and the Xen on ARM initiative.


XCP combines the Xen hypervisor with enhanced security, storage, andnetwork virtualization technologies to offer a rich set of virtualinfrastructure cloud services. These XCP cloud services can beleveraged by OpenStack cloud providers to enable isolation andmulti-tenancy capabilities in their environments. XCP also providesthe user requirements of security, availability, performance, andisolation for private and public OpenStack cloud deployments.


Xen.org is working to make XCP and OpenStack work seamlessly so thattogether they can be the ultimate open source cloud solution. Inaddition to deploying XCP as a separate component with OpenStack,Xen.org is simultaneously porting the XCP toolstack (XAPI) to Linuxdistributions, which will give cloud administrators an easy-to-installOpenStack and Xen-based integrated alternative.


Finally, industry thought leaders, such as Mark Shuttleworth, aresupporting the adoption of ARM in server-class systems. Consequently,the port of Xen to the ARM platform could make it possible forOpenStack and Xen to lead the way into the future of ARM-based clouddeployments.

Intelligent Storage Overview

OpenStack has experienced blinding success over the past year, with many developers, sysadmins and companies participating in its ecosystem. Gluster has been working with the OpenStack community to determine the largest pain points with OpenStack. Recently we released code to address some of these pain points and bring about the following benefits: 

1. Live migration of VMs with no disruption to users, increasing business continuity and disaster recovery

2. Boot VMs using a mountable filesystem interface

3. Instantly switch from one VM to another

4. Resume VMs on another hypervisor

5. Movement of VMs between clouds

6. SWIFT and S3-compatible interface to GlusterFS.

These contributions to the OpenStack community will help bring about cloud federation and the - until now - unrealized dream of the open cloud. All of Gluster and OpenStack code is open source. This talk will feature code examples and demos of use.

Juju, DevOps Distilled

Formerly called Ensemble, juju is DevOps DistilledTM. Through the use
of charms (renamed from formulas), juju provides you with shareable,
re-usable, and repeatable expressions of DevOps best practices. You
can use them unmodified, or easily change and connect them to fit your
needs. Deploying a charm is similar to installing a package on Ubuntu:
ask for it and it’s there, remove it and it’s completely gone.

In this talk, we will discuss the concepts behind juju, and run a live
demonstration of juju for deploying and managing various workloads on
an OpenStack cloud running on top of Ubuntu Server.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Cloud

Cloud computing scared the crap out of me - the quirks and nightmaresof provisioning cloud computing, dns, storage, ... on AWS, Terremark,Rackspace, ... - I mean, where do you even start?Since I couldn't find a good answer, I undertook the (probably insane)task of creating one. fog gives you a place to start by creatingabstractions that work across many different providers, greatlyreducing the barrier to entry (and the cost of switching later). Theabstractions are built on top of solid wrappers for each api. So ifthe high level stuff doesn't cut it you can dig in and get the jobdone. On top of that, mocks are available to simulate what clouds willdo for development and testing (saving you time and money).You'll get a whirlwind tour of basic through advanced as we create thebuilding blocks of a highly distributed (multi-cloud) system with somesimple Ruby scripts that work nearly verbatim from provider toprovider. Get your feet wet working with cloud resources or just makeit easier on yourself as your usage gets more complex, either way fogmakes it easy to get what you need from the cloud.
