4 EMC Randy Bias Talk Plan Your OpenStack Project State of the Stack v4 The original SOTS was the first end-to-end view of OpenStack as a project. It has over 90,000 views on slide share and growing every day. This is the fourth iteration of SOTS and we will cover the good, bad, and ugly of all integrated and core OpenStack projects. This session is ideal for anyone who is new to OpenStack, who desires to understand “the big picture”, or who is trying to get an honest “self-evaluation” of OpenStack as as a whole. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/state-of-the-stack-v4
5 EMC Erez Webman, Randy Bias Demo (we need someone who can put the demo together) Cloud Storage Highly scalable distributed block storage with ScaleIO Struggling with block storage for your OpenStack deployment? Over a third of OpenStack deployments use an open source distributed block storage solution that is difficult to deploy, maintain, has problematic performance characteristics, and can’t deliver on the promise of scale-out storage. EMC, the world’s leader in storage has a number of scale-out storage solutions, including ScaleIO, the product of over a decade of development by experience storage experts. ScaleIO is a 100% software solution that runs on commodity hardware. It is easy to deploy, maintain, and operate. It is highly performant and proven in the field at scale at over 100PB. ScaleIO’s built-in “protection domains” provide smaller fault domains, while ensuring performance across the entire cluster.In this session we will give a deep dive on the ScaleIO technology, and show it running on a cluster of 100+ servers doing massive IOPS and show how easy it is to manage faults by inducing several failures. We will also show how ScaleIO can be easily downloaded directly from the EMC website and evaluated for free. ScaleIO is plug and play with OpenStack and may solve some of the most egregious block storage problems you have had to date. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/highly-scalable-distributed-block-storage-with-scaleio
6 EMC Sean Winn Talk Cloud Storage Software-defined Storage: the future of OpenStack storage systems This session will demonstrate how to use EMC ViPR as an option to build a multi-cloud SDS platform capable of handing heterogeneous storage environments. ViPR, when used in conjunction with Cinder, allows your storage platforms to be abstracted in a simplified manner while allowing storage operators to optimize resources through policy based management. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/software-defined-storage-the-future-of-openstack-storage-systems
7 EMC Jim Haselmaier, Niki Acosta, Shamail Tahir, Aaron Delp, Andre Bearfield Panel Enterprise IT Strategies Panel: Product Management Strategies for OpenStack As OpenStack grows incredibly quickly in popularity there is an increasing and consistent need to have a means to bridge the gap between app developers, operators, and the code itself. In a mainstream business this function is filled by Product Management, whose role it is to understand the needs of customers, work with engineering to build the right product, and then communicate product information back out to product marketers and/or customers using terms they understand.
The issue OpenStack faces today is that virtually any level of exposure to either the technology or the community almost immediately entails deciphering of unfamiliar terms and concepts. This means that product managers must also serve as educators and create products that and value that customers are willing to pay for, while bridging the gap between the community, engineers, customers, and users.In this panel, join OpenStack veterans as they share perspectives on OpenStack Product Management. They’ll discuss:
Strategies for turning trunk into productized solutions and offers
Pros and Cons of keeping product releases close to trunk
Creating an effective feedback loop between developers, operators, and users
Monetization strategies in the open source era
What IT organizations need to know and understand to get the most out of OpenStack
This is must-attend session for product managers and contributors. Contributors and users responsible for the creation and success of OpenStack-focused products should also find benefit.
Panelists:
Niki Acosta – Cisco (Chair)
Andre Beafield – Blue Box Group
Aaron Delp – Solidfire
Jim Haselmaier – Product Management – EMC
Shamail Tahir – Office of the CTO – EMC

8 EMC Sean Winn, Pradyumna Sampath (Hitachi) , Travis Wichert Talk Operations Have your Cake and Eat it too! Monitoring OpenStack in Layers One of the most important aspects for many cloud service providers is the ability to measure and predict cloud resource health and consumption. With the adoption of OpenStack on the rise in the Enterprise, it’s becoming more and more important to be able to seamlessly integrate with existing tools and products that exist in the marketplace.As an operator, how will you be able to predict scale-out requirements? How can you ensure availability and reliability? How can you demonstrate chargeback or showback to your various groups who make use of your infrastructure? How do you budget and plan for additional capacity? How does all of this integrate with your existing tools and skill sets?This talk will focus on the various integration points for monitoring your OpenStack infrastructure. We will be presenting a reference design which covers a layered approach to monitoring, allowing for operation at scale. We will also discuss opportunities where the community can contribute to the advancement of monitoring in OpenStack. You should leave this session with a better understanding of how to extract useful monitoring and telemetry data from your OpenStack deployment in order to operate at scale both efficiently and reliably. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/plugging-the-ceilometer-firehose-into-nagios
9 EMC Tushar Kalra Talk Things you need to know before you containerize your OpenStack deployment For those starting out, there is a tendency to treat containers like glorified light-weight VMs. When architecting your cloud around docker, you need to ensure that you adhere to some best practices to really leverage the benefits. This talk will go over some of those best practices and touch upon some of the challenges that you might encounter when deploying OpenStack services in docker containers. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/things-you-need-to-know-before-you-containerize-your-openstack-deployment
10 EMC Sean Roberts, Allison Randal, Rob Hirschfeld, Stefano Maffulli Talk State of OpenStack Product Management OpenStack is a very active community. Bursts of change happen quite often and it can be difficult to keep up if you are not immersed. We need manage the flow of critical information and decision making just like any other engineering organization. The people that represent the Product Management of OpenStack are a critical group within the community.The Product Management working group has met a few times starting in Paris. This group has organized itself around three first activities. Gathering the current state of the OpenStack projects, Defining what the Roadmap could look like, and working with the Cross Project team. The User Stories from the Win the Enterprise working group will used alongside the project needs.Join us to discuss what we have so far and let debate where we the OpenStack community should be going towards. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/state-of-openstack-product-management
11 EMC Kenneth Hui, Jan Mark Holzer, Greg Knieriemen, Caroline McCrory, Jesse Proudman, Manju Ramanathpura, and Boris Renski Panel Enterprise IT 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.
Topics that will be discussed include:- Can containers replace OpenStack in the enterprise?
– Where do Kubernetes and Mesos compete and where are they complimentary?
– What role does Docker have in OpenStack?
– Is it practical to use a combination of Kubernetes and Docker to completely replace OpenStack and KVM?
http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/ask-the-experts-are-containers-a-threat-to-openstack
12 EMC Kenneth Hui, Jesse Proudman, David Fishman, and Lisa-Marie Namphy Panel Operations What Your Customers Don’t Know About OpenStack Might Hurt You OpenStack is complicated, and explaining it to app developers and other consumers of the services it delivers can be a tough, thankless and often counterproductive task. But if you don’t cover the basics, small misunderstandings can bloom into major headaches as you move to production.Operators of OpenStack clouds have learned a lot about what app developers and other consumers of OpenStack services need to know about the project. In this session, we’ll discuss the five major tripwires that can put the best-laid deployments flat on their faces.We’ll look at the biggest landmines, including what to explain — and what to avoid — regarding governance and the integrated release cycle. We’ll also examine how to talk with new users about the best way to become engaged in the community, without scaring them away from open source altogether. We’ll also talk about how to make an honest assessment of their engineering chops and their appetite for getting into the weeds with OpenStack.These lessons from the trenches will be presented by five people who design, deploy, operate and consult on OpenStack with demanding customers. Come with an appetite for a reality check, and leave with a critical assessment of how to bring your users into OpenStack with their eyes open. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/what-your-customers-dont-know-about-openstack-might-hurt-you
13 EMC Tyler Britten / Mohamed Khalid Talk Cloud Storage OpenStack Data Storage Deep Dive With the almost limitless storage configuration options in OpenStack, architecting, operating, and troubleshooting can be daunting. In this session, we’ll cover configuration best practices, operational tips, and troubleshooting techniques with real-world examples. We’ll also discuss the various storage projects in OpenStack- Cinder, Swift, and Manila, and how EMC is contributing to them as well as how we are integrating our storage products. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/openstack-storage-deep-dive
14 EMC Tyler Britten / Mohamed Khalid Talk Operations OpenStack Operations While there is a lot of information available about the various OpenStack deployment options, there’s surprisingly less about what to do once you have your OpenStack environment up and running. In this session we’ll talk about all of the hot-button OpenStack operational issues- high availability, upgrades, monitoring, troubleshooting, and more! http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/operating-an-openstack-environment-a-focus-look-on-monitoring-logging-and-troubleshooting
15 EMC Drew Smith Talk Related OSS Projects Architecting OpenStack Monitoring for Next-Generation Functionality Monitoring and alerting: two things that everyone, operator to CTO, can agree are critical parts of any production deployment. In this presentation we’ll discuss the different generations of monitoring technologies – where we’ve been and where we’re going – and give a high-level overview of the current efforts and difficulties within the OpenStack ecosystem. We’ll talk about the importance of the shift away from polled service checks towards ‘push metrics’ and active telemetry, and present some concept designs for some seriously cool operator / administrator features that will be made possible in the near future. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/architecting-openstack-monitoring-for-next-generation-functionality
16 EMC Patrick Butler Monterde, Adrian Moreno, Magdy Salem Talk Related OSS Helios Burn: A REST API Fault Injection Platform Helios Burn is an out-of-the-box REST fault injection platform that captures and modifies HTTP/S traffic. It implements a man-in-the-middle interception using self-signed certificates to be able to intercept and interpret HTTPS traffic.The purpose of Helios Burn is to provide developers with a tool that injects failures in REST APIs so that developers can verify the stability and resilience of their applications and identify and prevent failures before deploying them into a production environment.HeliosBurn let’s users create custom rules to match with the REST target traffic, or they can also benefit from the preset rules for common Cloud services including OpenStack Swift and Nova. Upon a match, users are able to apply actions such as modifying any HTTP information (i.e., headers, URL, status code, payload), respond on behalf of the server, delay the request or response, or drop the connection.It is designed with an extendable modular architecture that enables third parties developers to add new modules with custom functionality.HeliosBurn is managed through a friendly web dashboard that allows users to tweak any aspect of the platform and observe the HTTP traffic going back and forth. In addition, HeliosBurn provides a full-featured API for developers to create custom clients and libraries.HeliosBurn is shipped both as a VM and a Docker microservice, making it really easy to deploy it. Depending on the need, it can be placed in a standalone server, in a Virtual Machine, or co-located with the Web server or Client application.As an open-source project, HeliosBurn welcomes and encourages any kind of collaboration from the community. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/heliosburn-a-rest-fault-injection-platform

In this session folks who have built scalable networking for large OpenStack deployments will walk you through the dos and don’ts of networking. Why layer-3 networking is your friend, how OSPF and BGP work together, and why everyone loves a spine/leaf networking architecture. We’ll give real world examples of networks we have built, including one that handled the load for a major retailer during Black Friday 2014. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/building-scalable-networks-for-fun-and-profit
21 EMC, VMware Sean Winn, Mike Cohen, Naren Narendra, Sean Roberts, Allison Randal, Rob Hirchfeld, Stefano Maffulli, Arkady Panel Community What’s Next in OpenStack: A Glimpse at the Roadmap Whether you are a newbie to OpenStack looking at building your first cloud or an experienced operator with years of OpenStack success behind you, you’ve probably spent some time wondering what to expect from the OpenStack project over the next several releases. Will it finally support that new capability you’ve been waiting for? Should you plan for an upgrade in the next 6 months?While the development community is always working and planning new features, its takes a lot of time on IRC to get a complete view across the different projects. The OpenStack Product WG spent time this cycle working with the project teams and PTLs to understand their priorities for the next several OpenStack releases. In this session, we’ll present our findings across the different projects in an effort to give users a glimpse into the OpenStack roadmap. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/whats-next-in-openstack-a-glimpse-at-the-roadmap

38 VMware Jay Jahns, Nick Bradford, James Zabala, Eric Lopez Talk Operations Practical Lessons from real world Multi-Hypervisor deployments Organizations are using OpenStack to increase delivery speed of
Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS) capability for a number of reasons, including Self Service and programmatic consumption of Infrastructure services reducing delivery of these services from weeks to seconds.VMware’s internal OpenStack platform is one of the largest multi-hypervisor environments in production and is currently utilized by engineering, support, and sales teams to provide demonstration, training, product development, customer support, and partner integration. Originally built to serve moderate demands, it has grown to serve more than 300 hypervisors, 6000 VMs, 20,000 logical switch ports, and 2000 logical routers.In this session, we will discuss the lessons learned in running a multiple hypervisor environment based on KVM and vSphere, empowering the business by increasing their efficiency and ability to innovate whilst retaining flexibility in the infrastructure used to provide these services.

40 VMware Tim Hinrichs, Serg Melikyan Talk Operations Governing (Murano) Application Deployment with (Congress) Policy Deploying applications is hard to get right. It requires gathering information from many different resources (e.g. the application itself, the infrastructure, the other applications already deployed), and making technical and business decisions about where and how to deploy the app while satisfying the multitude of business/infrastructure/application policies that govern the deployment process.In this talk, we describe an integration of Murano and Congress that eases the burden of policy-governed application deployment. This integration ensures that application-deployment done through Murano complies with the policy expressed in Congress—from initialization all the way through to final deployment. In this session we demonstrate how to define policy with Congress and how policy is enforced within Murano during application fulfillment, culminating in a live demo. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/governing-murano-application-deployment-with-congress-policy
41 VMware Tim Hinrichs, Ramki Krishnan Talk Telco Strategies Helping Telcos go Green and save OpEx via Policy Currently OpenStack does little to help Telcos optimize their workloads for energy consumption, cost, and speed. Today, operators must manually (or via scripts) provision, migrate, and decommission workloads to achieve the desired balance of energy/cost/speed, and they must do so repeatedly.In this talk, we describe an open architecture for automating resource optimization, where operators provide a policy describing how workloads ought to be optimized, and OpenStack continually monitors and migrates workloads to satisfy that policy. Under this architecture, operators give their policy to Congress [1] (the not-yet-incubated OpenStack project for Policy-as-a-Service), and Congress continually enforces that policy by migrating workloads as appropriate. In addition to discussing the architecture, we demo a proof-of-concept implementation where Congress migrates real VMs via Nova in response to changes in datacenter readings reported by Ceilometer. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/helping-telcos-go-green-and-save-opex-via-policy
42 VMware Dimitri Stiliadis Tim Hinrichs, Mike Cohen, Dave Lenrow, Craig Matsumoto Panel Related OSS Projects Panel: Defining Policy Frameworks for Openstack Policy has quickly become a hot topic in cloud management and orchestration. As OpenStack clouds expand, penetrate the enterprise, and evolve with technologies such as containers, policy-based solutions for capturing user intent, automating management and security, and ensuring governance and compliance for applications has emerged as a critical area for development.
This panel will explore emerging trends and projects in policy developing in the OpenStack and OpenDaylight communities. It will discuss a number of topics, including:
-What is meant “policy” in the context of OpenStack. Is there a “right” approach?
-Why is policy important? What are the key use cases?
-What projects and capabilities are present in OpenStack today
-How will it fit with existing OpenStack components

53 VMware Tracy Jones Talk Compute Diving Deeper into Nova and VMware ESXi It is well known that Nova works with the VMware hypervisor. Yet, there is quite some confusion around how Nova integrates with VMware ESXi. Does Nova interact directly with ESXi or with the vCenter Server? Is Nova capability X supported when using the VMware hypervisor? Can I take advantage of ESXi/vCenter Server’s feature Y from Nova? When should an admin use Horizon and when should one use the vCenter client? This talk will mitigate such confusion by digging into the nuts and bolts of the integration between Nova and the VMware hypervisor with the help of a demo that will also show case how some of the advanced ESXi/vCenter Server features can be leveraged from Nova. http://www.openstack.org/vote-vancouver/presentation/diving-deeper-into-nova-and-vmware-esxi

4 Randy Bias Talk Plan Your OpenStack Project State of the Stack v4 The original SOTS was the first end-to-end view of OpenStack as a project. It has over 90,000 views on slide share and growing every day. This is the fourth iteration of SOTS and we will cover the good, bad, and ugly of all integrated and core OpenStack projects. This session is ideal for anyone who is new to OpenStack, who desires to understand “the big picture”, or who is trying to get an honest “self-evaluation” of OpenStack as as a whole. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3335
5 Erez Webman, Randy Bias Demo (we need someone who can put the demo together) Cloud Storage Highly scalable distributed block storage with ScaleIO Struggling with block storage for your OpenStack deployment? Over a third of OpenStack deployments use an open source distributed block storage solution that is difficult to deploy, maintain, has problematic performance characteristics, and can’t deliver on the promise of scale-out storage. EMC, the world’s leader in storage has a number of scale-out storage solutions, including ScaleIO, the product of over a decade of development by experience storage experts. ScaleIO is a 100% software solution that runs on commodity hardware. It is easy to deploy, maintain, and operate. It is highly performant and proven in the field at scale at over 100PB. ScaleIO’s built-in “protection domains” provide smaller fault domains, while ensuring performance across the entire cluster.In this session we will give a deep dive on the ScaleIO technology, and show it running on a cluster of 100+ servers doing massive IOPS and show how easy it is to manage faults by inducing several failures. We will also show how ScaleIO can be easily downloaded directly from the EMC website and evaluated for free. ScaleIO is plug and play with OpenStack and may solve some of the most egregious block storage problems you have had to date. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3512
6 Sean Winn Talk Cloud Storage Software-defined Storage: the future of OpenStack storage systems This session will demonstrate how to use EMC ViPR as an option to build a multi-cloud SDS platform capable of handing heterogeneous storage environments. ViPR, when used in conjunction with Cinder, allows your storage platforms to be abstracted in a simplified manner while allowing storage operators to optimize resources through policy based management. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3555
7 Jim Haselmaier, Niki Acosta, Shamail Tahir, Aaron Delp, Andre Bearfield Panel Enterprise IT Strategies Bridging The Gap Between App Developers, Operators & Technology: Product Management In The OpenStack Ecosystem As OpenStack grows incredibly quickly in popularity there is an increasing and consistent need to have a means to bridge the gap between the populations using and consuming OpenStack and the myriad of technologies and details that must be navigated when developing, producing and delivering OpenStack. In a mainstream business this function is filled by Product Management: Understand the needs of customers, work with Engineering to build the right product, and then communicate product information back to customers using terms they understand. The issue OpenStack faces today is that virtually any level of exposure to either the technology or the community almost immediately entails deciphering terms and concepts such as GitHub, repositories, trunk, open source, forks, CI testing, etc. etc. These terms are 2nd-nature to virtually all currently involved in the community, but are new and potentially intimidating to others. This is situation is producing unique challenges for three distinct groups:
The OpenStack Community: How do the people writing software for OpenStack best learn the needs of those that will be using it – when many of these prospective users do not wish to write OpenStack software themselves?
OpenStack Vendors: How do they manage the technology coming out of the OpenStack community and turn it into products that meet their customers’ needs?
Organizations Using OpenStack: With OpenStack’s new technology and cloud model (which often requires enterprises to behave in new ways) how do IT organizations change how they relate to and serve their user base so they can receive full benefit of this new environment?This panel discussion will explore these dynamics and provide practical perspectives on how these user/technology gaps can be addressed.

8 Sean Winn, Pradyumna Sampath (Hitachi) , Travis Wichert Talk Operations Have your Cake and Eat it too! Monitoring OpenStack in Layers One of the most important aspects for many cloud service providers is the ability to measure and predict cloud resource health and consumption. Withthe adoption of OpenStack on the rise in the Enterprise, it’s becoming more and more importantto be able to seamlessly integrate with existing tools and products that exist in the marketplace.As an operator, how will you be able to predict scale-out requirements? How can youensure availability and reliability? How can youdemonstratechargeback orshowback to your various groups who make use of your infrastructure? How do you budget and plan foradditional capacity? How does all of this integrate with your existing tools and skill sets?This talk will focus on the various integration points for monitoring your OpenStack infrastructure. We will be presenting a reference design which covers a layered approach to monitoring, allowing for operation at scale. We will also discuss opportunities where the community can contribute to the advancement of monitoring in OpenStack. You should leave this session with a better understanding of how to extract useful monitoring and telemetry data from your OpenStack deployment in order to operate at scale both efficiently and reliably. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3004
9 Sean Winn, Mike Cohen, Naren Narendra, Sean Roberts, Allison Randal, Rob Hirchfeld, Stefano Maffulli, Arkady Panel Community What’s Next in OpenStack: A Glimpse at the Roadmap Whether you are a newbie to OpenStack looking at building your first cloud or an experienced operator with years of OpenStack success behind you, you’ve probably spent some time wondering what to expect from the OpenStack project over the next several releases. Will it finally support that new capability you’ve been waiting for? Should you plan for an upgrade in the next 6 months?While the development community is always working and planning new features, its takes a lot of time on IRC to get a complete view across the different projects. The OpenStack Product WG spent time this cycle working with the project teams and PTLs to understand their priorities for the next several OpenStack releases. In this session, we’ll present our findings across the different projects in an effort to give users a glimpse into the OpenStack roadmap. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/2776
10 Tushar Kalra Talk Things you need to know before you containerize your OpenStack deployment For those starting out, there is a tendency to treat containers like glorified light-weight VMs. When architecting your cloud around docker, you need to ensure that you adhere to some best practices to really leverage the benefits. This talk will go over some of those best practices and touch upon some of the challenges that you might encounter when deploying OpenStack services in docker containers.
11 Sean Roberts, Allison Randal, Rob Hirschfeld, Stefano Maffulli Talk State of OpenStack Product Management OpenStack is a very active community. Bursts of change happenquite often and itcan be difficult to keep up if you are not immersed. We need manage the flow of critical information anddecision making just like any other engineering organization. Thepeople that represent the Product Management of OpenStack are a critical group within the community.The Product Management working group has met a few times starting in Paris. This group has organized itself around three first activities. Gathering the current state of the OpenStack projects, Defining what the Roadmap could look like, and working with the Cross Project team. The User Stories from the Win the Enterprise working group will usedalongside the project needs.Join us to discuss what we have so far and let debate where we the OpenStack community should be going towards.
12 Sean roberts, Rob Hirschfeld, Egle Sigler, Alan Clark Panel DefCore, tempest DefCore 2015 This Committee was formed during the OpenStack Ice House Summit in Hong Kong by Board Resolution on 11/4. DefCore sets base requirements by defining 1) capabilities, 2) code and 3) must-pass tests for all OpenStack products.

In this presentation we’ll discuss the different generations of monitoring technologies – where we’ve been and where we’re going – and give a high-level overview of the current efforts and difficulties within the OpenStack ecosystem. We’ll talk about the importance of the shift away from polled service checks towards ‘push metrics’ and active telemetry, and present some concept designs for some seriously cool operator / administrator features that will be made possible in the near future. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3596
18 Patrick Butler Monterde, Adrian Moreno, Magdy Salem Talk Related OSS Helios Burn: A REST API Fault Injection Platform Helios Burn is an out-of-the-box REST fault injection platform that captures and modifies HTTP/S traffic. It implements a man-in-the-middle interception using self-signed certificates to be able to intercept and interpret HTTPS traffic.The purpose of Helios Burn is to provide developers with a tool that injects failures in REST APIs so that developers can verify the stability and resilience of their applications and identify and prevent failures before deploying them into a production environment.HeliosBurn let’s users create custom rules to match with the REST target traffic, or they can also benefit from the preset rules for common Cloud services including OpenStack Swift and Nova. Upon a match, users are able to apply actions such as modifying any HTTP information (i.e., headers, URL, status code, payload), respond on behalf of the server, delay the request or response, or drop the connection.It is designed with an extendable modular architecture that enables third parties developers to add new modules with custom functionality.HeliosBurn is managed through a friendly web dashboard that allows users to tweak any aspect of the platform and observe the HTTP traffic going back and forth. In addition, HeliosBurn provides a full-featured API for developers to create custom clients and libraries.HeliosBurn is shipped both as a VM and a Docker microservice, making it really easy to deploy it. Depending on the need, it can be placed in a standalone server, in a Virtual Machine, or co-located with the Web server or Client application.As an open-source project, HeliosBurn welcomes and encourages any kind of collaboration from the community. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3431

26 Eric Lopez, Aaron Rosen HOL Hands On Lab Congress Congress is an OpenStack project that provides policy as a service across any collection of cloud services in order to offer governance and compliance for dynamic infrastructures. In this lab users will get access to a live OpenStack setup with congress already installed and will be able to walk through several key congress deployment use cases and get hands on experience working with congress. Users will write policies that interface with several OpenStack projects (neutron, glance, nova, keystone, cinder, murano) and understand how the policy language works and how one can tame their cloud with congress.

31 Tim Hinrichs, Serg Melikyan Talk Operations Governing (Murano) Application Deployment with (Congress) Policy Deploying applications is hard to get right. It requires gathering information from many different resources (e.g. the application itself, the infrastructure, the other applications already deployed), and making technical and business decisions about where and how to deploy the app while satisfying the multitude of business/infrastructure/application policies that govern the deployment process.In this talk, we describe an integration of Murano and Congress that eases the burden of policy-governed application deployment. This integration ensures that application-deployment done through Murano complies with the policy expressed in Congress—from initialization all the way through to final deployment. In this session we demonstrate how to define policy with Congress and how policy is enforced within Murano during application fulfillment, culminating in a live demo.
32 Tim Hinrichs, Ramki Krishnan Talk Telco Strategies Helping Telcos go Green and save OpEx via Policy Currently OpenStack does little to help Telcos optimize their workloads for energy consumption, cost, and speed. Today, operators must manually (or via scripts) provision, migrate, and decommission workloads to achieve the desired balance of energy/cost/speed, and they must do so repeatedly.In this talk, we describe an open architecture for automating resource optimization, where operators provide a policy describing how workloads ought to be optimized, and OpenStack continually monitors and migrates workloads to satisfy that policy. Under this architecture, operators give their policy to Congress [1] (the not-yet-incubated OpenStack project for Policy-as-a-Service), and Congress continually enforces that policy by migrating workloads as appropriate. In addition to discussing the architecture, we demo a proof-of-concept implementation where Congress migrates real VMs via Nova in response to changes in datacenter readings reported by Ceilometer.
33 Dimitri Stiliadis Tim Hinrichs, Mike Cohen, Dave Lenrow, Craig Matsumoto Panel Related OSS Projects Panel: Defining Policy Frameworks for Openstack Policy has quickly become a hot topic in cloud management and orchestration. As OpenStack clouds expand, penetrate the enterprise, and evolve with technologies such as containers, policy-based solutions for capturing user intent, automating management and security, and ensuring governance and compliance for applications has emerged as a critical area for development.
This panel will explore emerging trends and projects in policy developing in the OpenStack and OpenDaylight communities. It will discuss a number of topics, including:
-What is meant “policy” in the context of OpenStack. Is there a “right” approach?
-Why is policy important? What are the key use cases?
-What projects and capabilities are present in OpenStack today
-How will it fit with existing OpenStack components

45 Tracy Jones Talk Compute Diving Deeper into Nova and VMware ESXi It is well known that Nova works with the VMware hypervisor. Yet, there is quite some confusion around how Nova integrates with VMware ESXi. Does Nova interact directly with ESXi or with the vCenter Server? Is Nova capability X supported when using the VMware hypervisor? Can I take advantage of ESXi/vCenter Server’s feature Y from Nova? When should an admin use Horizon and when should one use the vCenter client? This talk will mitigate such confusion by digging into the nuts and bolts of the integration between Nova and the VMware hypervisor with the help of a demo that will also show case how some of the advanced ESXi/vCenter Server features can be leveraged from Nova.

50 Sean Winn, Ted Streete Talk Networking Building Scalable Networks for Fun and Profit So you’re going to use Neutron plus an SDN overlay? Or perhaps just simple VLANs? Regardless of which way you go, it turns out there is already a set of well understood best practices for building scalable networks. In this session folks who have built scalable networking for large OpenStack deployments will walk you through the dos and don’ts of networking. Why layer-3 networking is your friend, how OSPF and BGP work together, and why everyone loves a spine/leaf networking architecture. We’ll give real world examples of networks we have built, including one that handled the load for a major retailer during Black Friday 2014. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3789

52 Aaron, Pierr, Ramiro Salas, Pierre Ettori; Enterprise Extending OpenStack Congress to the PaaS layer for Next-Gen App Policy Controls Cloud Foundry is a open source cloud computing platform as a service (PaaS) which allows users the ability to deploy and scale their application easily. The platform provides several as as a service features such as redis, mysql, mongo, etc that application developers can leverage with their applications. Congress integrates with Cloud Foundry and allows Security teams to audit and define policies over specific applications. For example, a security team could define a policy saying applications deployed in production require https or a specific autoscaling configuration. In this talk we’ll give an overview of congress and demo this integration.
53 Randy Bias, Sean Roberts Talk Community Building DefCore and Me DefCore is a recently formed set of criteria that identifies which products, providers, and solutions meet the requirements to use the OpenStack mark. In this session, we will explore the considerations and implications from one vendors perspective as they begin to assess their own readiness under this new program. We will also discuss why OpenStack cloud operators can also benefit from validating their implementation against DefCore using a tool called RefStack and how this initiative will help the compatibility of OpenStack clouds in the long-term. https://www.openstack.org/summit/vancouver-2015/call-for-speakers/TalkDetails/3785

Day Two of the OpenStack Product Management Kilo Midcycle

Details https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/kilo-product-management-midcycle

Neutron is a critical OpenStack project. Any major changes can make or break a business relying on OpenStack networking. To start off day two, Gary Kotton ran down the details of  a major change, the Neutron service split. Due to lengthly patch review / merge cycles along with inconsistent vendor contributions, the Neutron vendor plugins were moved to the github Stackforge organization repositories from the github OpenStack Neutron repository. This will make the OpenStack Neutron project tighter around code contributions. This change also has the side effect of making CI testing more complicated and lengthening bug tracing. We included this talk, not to debate the right or wrong of the change, rather to inform the broader community. If your OpenStack company is not aware of the Neutron service split and it’s impact on your company, then you better know quickly.

We had no shortage of ideas and possible directions for this group to go. Allison Price, Stefano Maffulli, and myself (Rob Hirschfeld was close by, but unavailable for this part of the day) ran down different ways of going forward.

We settled on the basics. Identifying the gap this group seeks to fill. It’s the space between the Customers and the Contributors. So what can we do that is actionable in this space?

Leaving out some of the sausage making, we decided that a Multi-Release Roadmap is what Customers and Contributors need here. It’s the gap. So to fill this gap with least amount of OpenStack project disruption while providing goodness we divided ourselves into three groups.

The first group will listen to OpenStack project pain points and priorities from each project cores and lead. The focus is only listen at this point and gather what the projects need. We are calling this the Socialization Effort. The results will be presented at the Vancouver summit. This group has an etherpad here https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/kilo-product-management-socialization.

The second group will define a roadmap process. Much like the DefCore work, this is a very early effort. The roadmap process will require a lot of feedback and socialization before it is considered complete.

Early Version of the Release Roadmap
Early Version of the Release Roadmap

The Win the Enterprise group has been very successful in gathering user stories. Each of the user stories have one or more features. There are many verticals like Enterprise, Telecommunications, or Cloud Service Providers that need to support features that are missing from OpenStack. Through the community a feature or two is selected to serve the needs of one or more verticals like scalability in the image above. Blueprints would be the result to implement the features. The feature implementation would be tracked over many OpenStack releases.  Coordination with the many OpenStack partner companies on priority user stories and their features will be critical for getting developer support. We want to include personas and some other ideas into this process, so expect refinements by the Vancouver Summit.

Not to jump the gun, BUT Shamail Tahir came up with an excellent first features idea. The OpenStack Mission is “to produce the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that will meet the needs of public and private clouds regardless of size, by being simple to implement and massively scalable.” Would it not be a good idea to make “simple to implement” and “massively scalable” happen?

The third group will focus on cross project communication. Devananda van der Veen talked us through how we can make this work. The efforts with the other two groups above will need to be communicated using OpenStack developer friendly methods like cross project specs https://github.com/openstack/openstack-specs/blob/master/doc/source/index.rst.  This group has an etherpad here https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/kilo-product-management-task-cross-project.

Our next steps will be to discuss group progress on the OpenStack Product Management mailing list, hold a monthly IRC meeting https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings#OpenStack_Product_Management_Meeting, a few of us will meet at the Philadelphia Ops Midcycle, and we will present two summit talks.

We want to move OpenStack forward with the smallest amount of change possible. I believe our plans above have a good chance of success. Let me and the broader group know what you think.

Getting Ready for the Product Management Kilo Midcycle

RSVP for the OpenStack Product Management Kilo Midcycle Meeting here.

It’s time to finalize the OpenStack Product Management topics for the Kilo midcycle meeting coming up. We will need speakers for each topic. I want to get the best authority possible for each talk, so locking down the topics is required. I will need to get their commitment as soon as possible.

The topic options are on the etherpad here. My choices for topics are multi-release strategy, project tagging, neutron services split, DefCore and RefStack, and cross project specifications. I will post this call to the mailing list. I need you, the attendees, to respond with your priority topics and any speaking offers. Respond by mailing list, tweet, comment on this post, or by the etherpad.
