Report on my work as a Red Hat Forward Deployed Engineer, installing OpenStack in EMEA


<ul><li>1.1 OpenStack in real life Bart van den Heuvel OpenStack Meetup Amsterdam through red glasses </li></ul> <p>2. 2 Installing OpenStack in EMEA Part of Red Hat Architects team Seeing the world through through Red Glasses My work as Forward Deployed Engineer 3. 3 A success story for OpenSource! Very steep learning curve A lot of technologie combined So many choices, so many are good, just a few combine well Very much like Linux 20 years ago 4. 4 Some organizations don't know what they are in to OpenStack the hype!!!!!1111!!! OpenStack not virtualisation? What?!!?! Is it then a orchestration tool for my other cloud components? Pets vs Cattle Upgrading your instance OS? NO!!! 5. A different kind of architecture... TRADITIONAL WORKLOADS Stateful virtual machines Big VMs: vCPU, vRAM, local storage inside VM Application SLA aligned to VM itself Relies on underlying HA technology to meet SLA goals VMs scale up: add vCPU, vRAM, etc. Applications not designed to tolerate failure of VMs CLOUD WORKLOADS Stateless VMs, application distributed Small VMs: vCPU, vRAM, storage separate Application SLA not dependent on any one VM Many instances can provide application availability Applications scale out: add more VMs Applications designed to tolerate failure of VMs 6. So... What then? With Virtualization you concentrate on one, two or more virtual machines With OpenStack cloud you expand that focus to your software defined datacenter 7. What about workloads Cloud workloads? - Unpredictable load or potential for explosive growth - Partial utilization - Easy parallelization 8. Typical OpenStack Use Cases Service provider offering Re-sell compute, networking and storage resources as a new cloud provider to other organisations Internal cloud offering Infrastructure-on-demand service for internal customers Test &amp; Development Environments Large-scale web applications or content farms Dynamically scale based on load e.g. Netflix, PayPal, eBay 9. But i want the OpenStack - stateless distributed processes - Can't i run VM's like in the old days? - Legacy workloads Controlling vsphere with Nova 10. Which organisations should use OpenStack? Automation, automation, automation 11. Options for the people.... Open Source Tech Guru's, using and contributing upstream Open Source enthusiasts, using upstream as is. Consumer plus using packaged solution, expecting support and help contributing upstream Pure Consumer using as is; expecting support, training and consulting services 12. So many options Using upstream directly from trunk Using a packaged but unsupported version Using a vendor supported product 13. And more options... Installing from trunk, devstack, elbow grease Installing by hand, using packages Going fully automatic 14. What is Red Hat's view? - Packages - Puppet modules - Packstack - The Foreman / Satellite 6 - TripleO / Tuskar 15. Red Hat makes 'sensible' choices - Package the projects - Define a working method, upstream - define a HA strategy - Integrate with other products, including those from other vendors 16. HA in OpenStack - Load balancing, haproxy / Keepalived - Not all services are stateless - The MySQL debacle - Shared storage </p>
