Advanced Network Services in OpenStack: Load-Balancing as a Service (Avi Networks)

This session is about elastic, multi-tenant, L4-L7 network services in OpenStack. We will particularly discuss about Load Balancing as a Service (LBaaS): how it is implemented in OpenStack today and how this evolved over different versions of OpenStack. We will present a distributed and scalable service-VM architecture that underlies the recent reference implementation and also our solution. We will demo load balancing (LBaaS), high-performance SSL, and real-time application monitoring services in OpenStack. We will also share learnings from production deployments of LBaaS in large-scale private and public OpenStack clouds.

Enterprise Migration enabled by SDN/Network Virtualization (Juniper)
You want agility, flexibility, and security for your cloud.
That means utilizing all the cloud environments in your disposal to run applications, designing your IT at ANY SCALE while securing your network end-to-end. 

With this secure elastic cloud, your workloads move between private and public clouds dynamically while utilizing the best compute vehicle (VMs, Containers or Bare Metal Servers) available to run a particular workload, requiring Cloud Connect technology to connect any compute environments anywhere. 

Not to mention you must isolate tenants running on your shared IT infrastructure and protect workloads across cloud boundaries. 

Juniper has the answer. With this demo, we will showcase:
1: Secure: Tenant isolation & protect workloads
2: Hybrid Cloud: Build your IT as service at any scale 
3: Freedom of Choice: Run applications on different compute environments.

High Performance Ceph In Production (Intel)

In designing an OpenStack cloud system, one of the most critical tasks is how to build out a highly scalable and reliable storage system. We, at Adobe, have been using Ceph as high performance block storage in OpenStack for a variety of use cases such as images, volumes, and snapshots. Over the last two years, and through several experiences of building out Ceph systems, we've been able to achieve very competitive performance with traditional spinning HDDs, yet we found interesting bottlenecks on several subcomponents including networks. We would like to share how we designed our Ceph architecture to maximize its performance with all commodity hardware. We are also planning on enhancing our current Ceph architecture to further boost up its performance using NVMe SSDs.

In the second part of the talk, Intel will share with us the work they are doing with Ceph. Intel will cover their upstream development work, reference archiectures, and benchmarks including work on an all NVMe Ceph clusters. Then Intel will cover review initial results of their blustore testing as well as some early work with Ceph on 100GbE networks.

Various OpenStack deployment models for private cloud (Dell EMC)
In this beginner-level session, we will discuss the pros and cons of various OpenStack consumption models. We will take a critical view of the various options that are available for building an OpenStack cloud. Is DIY the best path or are there trade-offs? Should you be concerned with vendor lock-in leveraging a distribution or turnkey model? What considerations should you take into account when deciding between these options of DIY or Distro or Turnkey Appliance? Join us as we discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly with each path to building a successful OpenStack-powered cloud.

Storage Challenges for Enterprise Applications in the Cloud (NetApp/SolidFire)
Moving a traditional Enterprise Application to the cloud is not without challenges and risks.  Traditional enterprise reliability designs utilize storage features in Enterprise storage arrays.  In OpenStack the concepts change.  In this talk I will discuss the challenges cloud architectures present for enterprise applications.  I will relate the general concepts to the current and planned OpenStack work and projects designed to address these challenges.
