Project Intro - Quantum Networking

Quantum is a newly incubated project aimed at enabling advanced networking within OpenStack.  We will cover our goals in creating Quantum, describe and demo the Diablo release of Quantum, and discuss plans for future releases.

Ceph Overview

Ceph is a massively scalable, distributed, unified storage system. This platform delivers object storage, block storage and a POSIX compatible file system that is easily deployed on commodity hardware. It is the only storage solution that is included in the Linux kernel and it provides a gateway that delivers S3 compatibility.

Ceph's Rados Block Device (RBD) integration with OpenStack delivers a highly scalable, shared, and reliable virtual hard disk solution.

  • Highly Scalable - no block size limit
  • Shared - accessible simultaneously from anywhere, making things like live VM migration possible
  • 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.

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.
