What's CGManager Doing and Why is it Still Relevant - Serge Hallyn, Canonical
The cgroup manager (cgmanager) is an effort by the LXC project to
address a specific set of goal: support unprivileged nesting and
nesting to multiple levels; allow userspace in containers to
administer their delegated cgroups the same way as on the host; and
simplify the cgroup code in lxc itself.

We will describe the requirements, design, and API. We will go over
the specific security guarantees and show how cgmanager provides these
guarantees for each API method. Finally we will discuss - and hopefully
receive input on - the relation of cgmanager to other parts of the linux
ecosystem including libcontainer, criu, and systemd, and discuss next steps.

Mixing Your Open Source Cloud Cocktail - Mark Hinkle, Citrix
Add two parts virtualization, one part orchestration add a little networking shake and pour. Unfortunately cloud computing isn’t that easy but then again not all clouds are the same and tastes may vary. This talk will discuss how the varying open source technologies like OpenStack, Docker, LXC and others can be mixed together to make something that appeals to the needs of a wide variety of users. There’s also no problem in abstaining from building your own cloud but still benefiting from the open source tooling to maximize the benefits of the public cloud.

What Manufacturing Teaches About DevOps - Gordon Haff, Red Hat
Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In this session, Gordon Haff discusses the many lessons and processes that DevOps can learn from manufacturing and the assembly line-like tools, such as Platform-as-a-Service, that provide the necessary abstraction and automation to make industrialized DevOps possible.

Tutorial: Hands On Trove: Database as a Service in OpenStack - Florian Haas, Hastexo
OpenStack, the fastest growing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platform in the open source community, has recently added a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) component named Trove, which saw its first production OpenStack release in April. Trove’s purpose is to provide scalable and reliable cloud DBaaS provisioning functionality for both relational and non-relational database engines.

In this presentation, we examine the motivation behind DBaaS, cover the architecture of Trove, and demonstrate the deployment of OpenStack Trove on an OpenStack private cloud, in order to provide MySQL DBaaS to OpenStack users. It is useful both for private cloud operators intending to deploy DBaaS, and to MySQL DBAs learning to interact with MySQL in an OpenStack DBaaS environment.

Beyond Golden Containers: Complementing Docker with Puppet - David Lutterkort, Puppet Labs
Docker offers an exciting new way to use containers for delivering and managing applications. Combining Docker with a configuration management system like Puppet provides much greater control over containers, both at buildtime and at runtime: at buildtime, Puppet's fine-grained resources such as file, cron, and user make it easy to control an image build in great detail; Puppet's facilities for weaving the description of a system together from different concerns make it easy to express similarities and differences between a fleet of container images concisely and understandably. At runtime, Puppet can be used to detect configuration drift and remediate such drift. When image building and deployment is performed by different parties, Puppet manifests also document the details of a container's setup and expose the knobs that can be used to control the payload of a container.

A Cloud Management Primer - John Mark Walker, Red Hat
What is "Cloud Management"? In a datacenter, you might have 2 or more virtualization management platforms, with a private cloud running alongside, and some workloads running in a public cloud.

Across all these, you want to be aware when there are problems, enforce some kind of consistency in who can consume your resources, and be aware of waste when it is happening. Maybe you also want to automate the provisioning of instances, integrate with a service catalog or configuration management system. Perhaps you want to know when VMs are vulnerable to security issues, prevent new VMs to be created from known-bad templates, and perform some clean-up of services when they are retired.

These are all cloud management problems. Whether it's curing VM sprawl or finding and fixing hot spots in the data center, this presentation will give you tools and techniques you can use to manage it all.

LXC and Why System Containers Matter Too - Stéphane Graber, Canonical Ltd.
There has been a lot of noise lately around application containers and how they make shipping your software much simpler by letting you bundle everything in a consistent way.

But there are cases where you just want a good old fully functional distro, those cases may include some random software having specific support requirements, or just offering shells or development/staging systems, ...

Now this can obviously be achieved through virtualization but running a Linux VM on a Linux host isn't the best use of your hardware, system containers are much lighter weight, faster and make things like sharing directories or physical resources trivial compared to VMs.


In this talk, I'll be presenting what LXC is capable of doing nowadays with system containers, some of the new management tools we've been working on and show just how easy it is to manage a whole network of those.

Cloud Coalescence: The Collision of Virtualization and Containers - Brian Proffitt, oVirt
Until recently, cloud computing has been about virtualization. Virtual machines are at the heart of the cloud, bringing cost savings and flexibility to organizations on a massive scale. But there's a new weather system blowing in: containers. Instead of emulating an entire operating system, containers can run just enough code to efficiently run an application. Containers and virtualization can be construed as competing technologies in the cloud, but in reality they are different parts of the same cloud ecosystem. From oVirt to RDO to Project Atomic, open source projects are leading this new innovation that will transform cloud computing as we know it.

Kubernetes on CloudStack - Sebastien Goasguen, Citrix
Docker is kicking butt and taking names, changing the application deployment landscape and disrupting IT operations practices. With a streamlined application packaging process and an easy deployment scenario, docker is bringing containers back to life and questioning the "traditional" cloud architectures based on virtualization hypervisors. However the true strength of Docker comes of the orchestration of multiple containers, which makes distributed application easier to deploy, monitor, scale and make fault tolerant.

In this talk we will look at Kubernetes the docker orchestration system open sourced by Google. We will show how it integrates nicely with CoreOS a new linux distribution whose sole purpose is to run docker containers. Finally we will show how Docker applications can be managed in the Cloud using Kubernetes, by deploying it on a CloudStack cloud that supports CoreOS templates.

Using Device Tree for VM Runtime Hardware Reconfiguration - Pantelis Antoniou, Konsulko Group
Virtual machines need a way to attach/remove virtual devices on runtime. For instance new block/network devices can be added, memory can be hotplugged removed and so on.

At the moment on the x86 architecture ACPI events are used, and while this can be made to work it is extremely cumbersome. Things are even more difficult on ARM, since there ACPI is still a moving target.

Turns out that by using Device Tree, and overlays, one can simplify the whole procedure by passing around device tree blobs with completely describe all hardware changes in an abstract format.

Join Pantelis Antoniou in explaining how you can use Device Tree to make complex hardware reconfiguration possible, and less troublesome.

Hardware Accelerated Virtio Networking for NFV - Varun Sethi & Yashpal Dutta, Freescale
Network function virtualization (NFV) leverages standard IT virtualization to consolidate multiple network functions on to a standard platform.The network functions are essentially decoupled from specialized hardware appliances, allowing them to run purely in software, as virtual machines. Network I/O with in the virtual machine becomes extremely critical, especially where network functions handle high traffic rate.
Virtio networking offers a flexible mechanism for sharing I/O interface among virtual machines (also suitable for VM migration). Despite the flexibility, there are performance challenges with virtio (even Vhost-net) for virtual network functions.
In this presentation we discuss the performance issues encountered and how these were mitigated with hardware offloads while running IP forwarding as a virtual network function under KVM hypervisor with Vhost-net networking.

The Service Enabling Wireless Network - Anthony C. K. Soong, Chief Scientist for Wireless Research and Standards at Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd,
There is now no dispute that the wide spread acceptance of the smart phones in the last few
years is currently transforming the mobile communication networks. One aspect is related to the 
movement of data to the cloud so that it can be accessed from anywhere with a variety of devices. This fundamentally redefines the endpoints and time frame for which network services are provisioned.

This talk will discuss two technology trends that will become paramount in the future of mobile 
communication systems: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking 
(SDN). Together they arguably represent the biggest advancement in the mobile communication 
network architecture in the last 20 years, and are fundamentally changing how network services are 
provided. It is the key enabler that will allow the network to be more nimble, flexible and scalable. It 
gives a unique opportunity to re-architect the mobile network to efficiently offer the services in the 
future.

The industry has already moved strongly in this direction; the creation of OPNFV in September of 
2014 is a significant step from the industry in terms of commercialization of these technologies, they will 
increase the rate of innovation, equip the industry for novel business models, and speed up the

Smart VM Scheduling in oVirt Cluster - Martin Sivak, Red Hat Czech
The oVirt project allows efficient management of virtualized datacenters. Deciding what machine should host a certain VM is one of the important functions of the management platform. Unfortunately it is also one of the complex ones, because there can be many rules governing the placement policy and there is a time limit in which a VM has to be started or migration initiated. Till now each VM was considered separately and that caused fragmentation of free resources.

We are about to present a new solution to this issue in this presentation. We have started a cooperation with the OptaPlanner team that develops an optimization engine based on probabilistic (soft computing) algorithms. This means that oVirt will feed situation updates to an optimization service and continuously receive improved solutions back. It will then use the precomputed results for rebalancing the clusters.

The open source community knows as remedy: 4 "free" virtualization management software products are on the scene for years. They promiss to setup manageable licensing costs-free virtualization environments.

As a recent example, Apache CloudStack will be presented here, which allows the management of a heterogeneous hypervisor environment with relatively little effort and promises relatively quick results.

Cloudstack deployment results in moderately higher expense and lower overall stability, which is however still acceptable for a large proportion of the "free" virtualized load at university computer centers.

Continuous Integration Using Docker & Jenkins - Mattias Giese, B1 Systems GmbH
Jenkins is often found inside a Continuous Integration/Delivery infrastructure. It can be used to automatically test each change set as soon as it occurs in a monitored code base. It is often linked with deployment tools like Vagrant to create a complete testing environment. Yet, here is a small drawback: launching and provisioning virtual machines for each change set increases the time for a test run to complete. With the help of Docker, provisioning of a testing environment is done in seconds, decreasing the time it takes to provide meaningful feedback to the developer. This talk describes two scenarios where automatic integration testing with Docker increases the productivity of admins and developers. The first one describes how an admin may perform integration testing of Puppet modules, a second one implements integration testing of a web app consisting of a Web and database server.

Open vSwitch and DPDK - Jesse Gross, VMware

DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) has generated a lot of excitement by demonstrating that it is possible to do high speed networking purely in software. However, as the name implies, DPDK is a building block and set of tools rather than an application for end users. In order to be useful, it needs to be built into existing software.

Open vSwitch is already widely used in software based networking due to its programmability, flexibility, and integration with other tools. In addition, due to its portability, OVS is relatively easy to adapt to new types of data planes, making the two a perfect fit.

DPDK has many similarities to existing platforms used for Open vSwitch but also some marked differences, especially if the best possible performance results are to be achieved. Come hear the experience of getting OVS running on DPDK, where we are, and what still needs to be done.

Clocker - Migrating Complex Applications to Docker with Apache Brooklyn - Andrew Kennedy, Cloudsoft
Deploying enterprise-class distributed applications to Docker containers spanning multiple hosts is tricky. Dealing with port forwarding, firewalls and injecting configuration into containers for inter-dependencies are just some of the problems.

We will show how Clocker uses Apache Brooklyn's cloud abstractions to simplify the deployment and management of a complex application to a virtual Docker infrastructure. Brooklyn will create and maintain the required Docker containers in the right locations for your application, and control and manage the software and services using policies to scale both the application and infrastructure based on their state.

We will demonstrate deploying simple multi-tier web applications and also a complex financial risk analytics application from OpenGamma, onto a Docker infrastructure.

OpenStack REST API: Compatible or Consistent - Ken'ichi Ohmichi, NEC
The community of OpenStack Nova project is discussing the design and the purpose of a new RESTful API now. The API is called "Nova v3 API". The features of v3 API are "consistent API naming", "strong input validation", and "clean code". We already started developing v3 API one year ago, and the most part has been implemented. However the code removal of v3 was proposed, because we have renamed many API attributes for the consistency and the fact will cause a lot of backward incompatibility issues to Nova API users. In addition, there are huge amount of RESTful APIs as Nova API, the developers concerned the maintenance cost for keeping both API versions(v2 and v3). Ken'ichi is proposing an idea to solve the problem. He will show the mechanism of v3 API and the idea, and also show how to join OpenStack development community.

Open Source: The Customer Revolution Will be Cloudified - John Mark Walker, Red Hat
Open Source was a phenomenon made possible by the will of the customer and end user, pushing them up to the same status as developers. Cloud computing as an industry phenomenon is built almost entirely on open source pieces, but ironically (or perhaps, perversely) is used to create proprietary services. One could say that cloud computing is the revenge of the developer.

This talk discusses how the four software freedoms allowed customers and end users to achieve a more level playing field and provided a solid foundation on which innovation flourished. Innovation was an interesting by-product, not something pursued. The lessons learned from open source innovation should inform our choices in cloud-y computing, but cloud is currently dominated by proprietary services and obfuscation beyond the public API. Can we arrange the pieces once again such that innovation is an interesting by-product of processes and governance designed to give everyone a seat at the table?

Integrating Linux and the Real-Time ERIKA OS Through the Xen Hypervisor - Arianna Avanzini, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia
Modern cars, as well as aircrafts, are equipped not only with more and more complex control systems, but also with increasingly advanced user interfaces and infotainment systems. The growing computational demand of these applications can now be met only with multi-core systems, which are actually supplanting single-core ones. Also, safety-critical and non-safety-critical components must be isolated from each other. In this presentation we show a double-OS system, running on a dual-core ARM platform and using the Xen hypervisor to run, in two isolated domains, (1) the automotive-grade ERIKA Enterprise OS, a small-footprint real-time OS suitable for safety-critical control tasks, and (2) a full-featured Linux OS, which is then able to support any complex user interface or multimedia service. The system also provides a basic, safe communication mechanism between the two operating systems.

Avoiding the 1000 Euro VM in Your First Cloud - Tim Mackey, Citrix
Today everyone is talking about clouds, and a few are building them, but far fewer are operating successful clouds. In this session we'll examine a variety of paradigm shifts IT makes when moving from a traditional virtualization and management mindset to operating a successful cloud. For most organizations, without careful planning the hype of a cloud solution can quickly overcome its capabilities and pre-existing best practices can combine to create the worst possible cloud scenario -- a cloud which isn't economical to operate, and which is more cumbersome to manage than a traditional virtualization farm.

Key topics covered include:

- Successful transition of operational and management paradigm
- How the VM density of clouds change Ops
- What it means to monitor the network in a cloud environment, at hyper-dense virtualization levels
- Preventing storage costs from outpacing

On-premise private clouds require simple, powerful and flexible mechanisms to manage the access privileges to the infrastructure and to dynamically allocate the available resources. OpenNebula's quest for simplicity touches every aspect of the software, and a great effort has been put into the provisioning model. A smooth experience for users entails a proper design of the concepts, ironing out the flow of day to day operations, as well as proper tools for the administrators to manage its cloud. OpenNebula features on-demand provisioning of Virtual Data Centers (VDCs), which are containers for the execution of virtual resources that allow a complete isolation of users, organizations or workloads. This innovative provisioning model offers an integrated and comprehensive framework for resource partition, allocation and isolation in federated data centers and hybrid cloud deployments.

An Update (and Demo) on Techniques to Manage libvirt/QEMU-Based Virtual Machine Snapshots and Disk Image Chains - Kashyap Chamarthy, Red Hat
Managing QEMU overlay-based virtual machine snapshots can become cumbersome over a period of time. With each new snapshot, a new QCOW2 overlay file is created -- this can become an overhead of tracking multiple disk image files. Understanding the ability to manage multiple disk image chains efficiently will help lower this overhead.

This talk aims to explore some of the recent improvements in QEMU and libvirt projects that address this need of advanced disk image management. More specifically, we'll discuss -- shortening disk image chains, snapshot merging, live backup of entire disk image chain, gracefully reverting and deleting snapshots. We'll also see how some of these underlying concepts are used in higher-layer projects like OpenStack to create and manage snapshots. This session also includes a demonstration of some the snapshot management techniques discussed.

The experience of building a real production ready and scalable Cloud is much more than just installing a Cloud Platform, that is why, thanks to OpenNebula's simplicity, we will discuss how to further integrate it with many Open Source technologies, like Ceph for the Virtual Machine storage or Ansible to bootstrap it all.

Attendees will build the cloud in two CentOS virtual machines in their own laptops using VirtualBox. Remember to come to the tutorial with VirtualBox installed and with the virtualization extensions enabled!

How to Run a Collaborative Project - Lars Kurth, Citrix
Collaborative development is at the core of successful open source projects. Yet to be successful in today's competitive open source world, it is increasingly important to master many different disciplines and to develop an edge.

In this talk we will cover a wide range of topics relevant to developers and members of open source communities who want to increase participation in their projects. Topics range from growing your developer base (e.g. by participation in GSoC, OPW and similar programs), rewarding participation, projecting momentum in the media and press, coercing large companies into contributing more and in different ways to your project, running community initiatives successfully and measuring success.

We will use real-life examples and share tools and mental models (e.g. open source flywheel and funnels) that help you make the right decisions for your project.

Open Source Clouds: Be the Change You Want to See in the World - Tryggvi Lárusson, GreenQloud
The open source model has inspired a new initiative, based on the appropriate technology movement (AT), dubbed Open Source Appropriate Technology (OSAT). The AT movement is driven by people who wish to develop technology that is environmentally, culturally and economically appropriate. The open source model, combined with the AT movement, creates a framework for a universal collaboration towards increasing living standards and lowering environmental damage.

In this presentation, Tryggvi Lárusson will showcase tangible examples of sustainable cloud services capitalizing on open source technologies, while showcasing how open source, sustainability, environmental responsibility and advances in technology intersect in the service of solving real-world problems and encouraging the whole market to utilize OSAT.

KVM on Grid: Shaken, Not Stirred - Raphael Sack, Intel Corporation
Let’s say you have 10,000 Linux servers. Now, let’s say you need to upgrade these servers to version+1. How long is this effort going to take? Now consider the following scenario: All these servers are running 24/7 business critical tasks. Any disruption will cause significant delays in project timetables, and incur financial costs. How long would it take you to upgrade these servers now? You may decide the entire operation is unfeasible.

KVM on grid is a flexible, fast solution enabling dynamic management and allocation of virtual machines in large scale high-performance environments. It revolves around state of the art open-source virtualization, combined with distributed computing models. This allows near-real time deployment of systems on a mass scale, minimizing the overhead and complexity of the environment. It’s not cloud, it’s not batch, it’s “KVM on grid”!

Instance Types: Using oVirt as a Private Cloud Solution - Tomas Jelinek, Red Hat
An effective and flexible VM management which promotes self-service is a crucial part of any private cloud solution.

The VM centric management with templates present until oVirt 3.4 has limitations in mass editing of VM properties, fine grained permission management and integration with third party services such as Glance from OpenStack.
There is an ongoing effort of improving this situation with a big milestone achieved with the releasing of oVirt 3.5 containing the Instance Types feature implemented.

This talk will discuss the new Instance Types feature introduced in oVirt 3.5 and will explain the reasoning behind the specific decisions made with an emphasis to show how does it aim to elevate oVirt from data center virtualization solution to a private cloud solution.

Also the limitations of the current solution and the next steps targeted to oVirt 3.6 will be discussed.

Location-Aware Distributed Virtual Disk Storage For OpenStack - Keiichi Shima, IIJ Innovation Institute
We have proposed a redundant block disk interface for storing virtual machine (VM) disk images. The paper is available at http://member.wide.ad.jp/~shima/publications/20131209-ccsna-ukai.pdf. The key function of the interface is that an operator has full control over where to store disk images on which distributed storage nodes. This is important especially when a VM infrastructure is deployed over many different geographical locations. VMs are sometimes moved across hypervisors due to resource constraint or maintenance operations. It is a serious problem how effectively the virtual machines contact to their storage images when moving. By acquiring full control on a disk image migration decision, an operator can move related disk images to nearer location of the moving VMs. This presentation will show the design of the proposed system and the current status of OpenStack integration.
