On Tuesday the 25th, the OpenStack Foundation announced the session agenda for this Spring's Summit in Atlanta. With several hundred sessions submitted to the foundation, I am pleased to announce that Red Hat has 20 sessions successfully accepted to be included in the weeks agenda.
Considering the nature of acceptance for each submitted session, it is quite inspiring to see so many Red Hat sessions were voted on – providing the confirmation that Red Hat is focusing efforts on the projects and discussions that are important to the community.
In addition to these 20 sessions throughout the week, Red Hat will also have a dedicated track for the full day on Monday May 12th from 11:15am to 6:10pm, in room B312. Here, you'll be able to learn more about the specific efforts Red Hat is making around our commercially supported OpenStack products and joint partner solutions. We'll be posting that full day agenda soon.
To learn more about Red Hat's accepted sessions, have a look at the details below. We're excited about this Spring's Summit and look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!

Using OpenDaylight Within An OpenStack Environment
OpenDaylight is an open platform for network programmability to enable SDN and create a solid foundation for NFV for networks at any size and scale. OpenDaylight is licensed under the Eclipse Public License, and recently had its first release, code-named Hydrogen. The OpenDaylight and OpenStack Neutron teams have collaborated to integrate the two projects such that OpenDaylight can provide virtual tenant networking for OpenStack tenants. This talk will show you how to use OpenDaylight with OpenStack, including setup and debug of the environment...

Divide and Conquer: Resource Segregation in the OpenStack Cloud
As a cloud deployment grows both in size and in variety of workloads it is useful to be able to segregate compute resources based on factors such as physical location, networking connections, or the availability of specialized hardware. OpenStack provides a number of options for segregating compute resources in the cloud...

Customizing Horizon without breaking on upgrades
In probably most cases, when Horizon, the OpenStack Dashboard is installed, it's desired to change it's look and feel to meet the corporate look and feel." In many installations, software is deployed via software packages. When updating or upgrading software via distribution packages, in almost all cases changes applied to files installed will become overwritten. In this session, we'll show, how to achieve both, changes and not to break due package updates or even upgrades...

Implementation and Lessons Learned from Building a Large Scale Cloud (Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC)
The Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC) will be a public cloud based on a new model that allows many companies and institutions to participate in its implementation and operation. MOC is bringing multiple vendors together within a single infrastructure, hence fostering collaboration and interoperability amongst them. Several industry partners have joined the effort and been instrumental in the initial implementation of MOC...

Application software configuration using Heat
Until the Icehouse release of Heat, configuring software on orchestrated compute resources has required a cumbersome combination of declarative configuration, shell scripts and wait conditions. Heat now has a flexible mechanism to configure software throughout the life-cycle of compute resources. It is also now possible to integrate with software configuration tools such as Puppet or Chef, allowing configuration to be represented in a number of different ways...

Breaking the Mold with OpenStack Swift and GlusterFS
Red Hat uses OpenStack Swift as the object storage interface to GlusterFS. Instead of reimplementing the Swift API, Red Hat is participating in the OpenStack Swift community to ensure that GlusterFS can take full advantage of the latest Swift features. This is absolutely the right way to pair Swift with another storage system: use the existing functionality in Swift and contribute back to community where additional functionality is needed. This talk from their respective project leads will show how Swift and GlusterFS work together to take advantage of the best each system has to offer...
