Build a Cloud Day will be dedicated to teaching users how to build and manage a cloud computing environment using free and open source software. The program is designed to expose attendees to the concepts and best practices around deploying cloud computing infrastructure.
Attendees should expect to learn how to deploy a cloud computing environment using CloudStack and other cloud infrastructure tools that automate server and network configuration for building highly available cloud computing environments.
The program is designed to expose attendees to the concepts and best practices around deploying cloud computing infrastructure. Attendees should expect to learn how to deploy a cloud computing environment using CloudStack and other cloud infrastructure tools including those from Xen, Apache CloudStack, Ceph, Puppet Labs and Zenoss that automate server and network configuration for building highly available cloud computing environments.
9:00 - 9:15 Welcome: Mark R. Hinkle, Senior Director, Cloud Computing Community, Citrix
Will kick off the event with a review of the program and discussion on cloud computing.
9:15 -10:00 - Xen Cloud Platform - Joe Brockmeier, Open Source Cloud Computing Evangelist, Citrix
The Xen Cloud Platform is an open-source, enterprise-ready server virtualization platform. It is based on the Xen hypervisor, and represents the common code base for Citrix's XenServer product line. This talk will give an introduction to XCP, and how it relates to both the Xen hypervisor and to Citrix's XenServer. We will cover XCP's XenAPI and how it can be used by two of the most popular cloud orchestration frameworks, CloudStack and OpenStack. Finally, we'll discuss the XCP "roadmap," and our plans for the future of XCP.
10:00 - 10:15 Break
10:15 - 11:15 - Delivering IaaS with CloudStack: Clayton Weise, Apache CloudStack
Apache CloudStack is arguably one of the most mature, frequently deployed IaaS platforms - having been used in multi-national public clouds, and private clouds scaling to tens of thousands of physical compute nodes, wel look at considerations for deploying CloudStack and how to gain the most efficiency from your deployment.
11:15 - 12:15 - Introduction to Eucalyptus - Graziano Obertelli, Co-Founder Eucalyptus
The Eucalyptus Cloud platform is open source software for building AWS-compatible private and hybrid clouds. It pools together existing virtualized infrastructure to create cloud resources for compute,network and storage. This talk will give an introduction to Eucalyptus.
12:15 - 1:30 - Lunch Break
1:30 - 2:30 - Scaling Storage with Ceph: Ross Turk, VP Community at InkTank
Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, and is supported by the Linux kernel. This talk will describe the Ceph architecture, share its design principles, and discuss how it can be part of a cost-effective, reliable cloud stack.
2:30 - 3:30 - Opscode Chef, Nathan Harvey/George Miranda
The shift to cloud computing means that organizations are undergoing a major shift as they develop scale-out infrastructure that can respond to apace of business change faster than ever before. Opscode Chef® is an open-source systems integration framework build specifically for
automating the cloud by making it easy to deploy and scale servers and applications throughout your infrastructure.
3:30 - 3:45 Break
3:45 - 4:15 Automatic Configuration of Your Cloud with Puppet , Dan Bode, Integration Specialist at Puppetlabs
The shift to cloud-based services has dramatically altered the IT landscape as we know it. Enterprise infrastructure borders have expanded beyond the firewall and now include hosted applications and infrastructure hosted in public and private clouds. Puppet helps DevOps teams meet their common objectives, creating a seamless IT infrastructure across departments, reducing cost and increasing productivity.This training section will cover deploying cloud infrastructure automatically using Puppet, an open source configuration management and automation tool.The session will cover the following topics:
- Configuring Puppet and Puppetmaster
- Resource Types and the Resource Abstration Layer
- Virtual Resources, Exported Resources and Stored Configs
- Best practices for Automated Deployment
4:15- 5:00 Case Study: Continuous Delivery of a Cloud Based Service, Clayton Weise, ISWest
