Why Red Hat for OpenStack?

Featured Technologies

Ceph Day



Date: Monday, November 12, 2018

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Location: CityCube Berlin

While you're in town for OpenStack Summit Berlin, come find out why leading enterprises are adopting Ceph, why Ceph is the lowest cost per gig storage solution, and how easy it is to deploy your own Ceph cluster!

Venue: Matrix | Warschauer Pl. 18, 10245 Berlin, Germany

Going to OpenStack Summit Berlin? Red Hat and Trilio are hosting a party at one of the biggest clubs in East Berlin -- the Matrix! We're bringing back the 90's for a fun night to enjoy great food and drinks with other OpenStack experts in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Berlin.

We're on track to sell-out, so please register to secure your spot!

Lunch & Learn



Date: Tuesday, November 13

Time: 12:40 - 1:20 p.m.

Location: 7.1a, New York 1

Join us for our lunch and learn during OpenStack Summit Berlin for a look into Open Virtual Networking, containerization and hyper-converged nodes.

During this 40 minute lunch and learn session, we will provide an understanding of how networking has changed from OVS to OVN, what has changed now that we are using containers, and the advantages of HCI.


Red Hat Speaking Sessions

Red Hat Keynote Session

9:25 - 9:35 a.m. | Level 1 - Hall A4-6

Speaker: Nick Barcet, director of product management for OpenStack, Red Hat

Migration Without the Migraines: Enterprise Use Cases

11:00 - 11:40 a.m. | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: Ian Pilcher, field product manager - OpenStack, Virtualization, Containers, Red Hat and Robert Rother, senior solution architect, Trilio

Abstract: Gartner predicts that "by 2020, a corporate no-cloud policy will be as rare as a no-internet policy." Each organization’s challenges are different, but migrating to the cloud can be smooth and stress-free with the appropriate planning, service providers, and systems in place.

By understanding the journey of migration, you’ll be able to avoid vendor lock-in, explore hybrid or multi-cloud approaches, and understand the importance of a reliable backup and recovery solution. By considering the "worst-case scenario" with your team and the relevant stakeholders, it will reassure the entire organization knowing that business continuity is your ultimate priority.

Attendees can expect to learn:

  • The benefits of building in contingencies and pivoting during the migration process with guidance for your cloud service provider
  • How to ensure data is safely and responsibly stored during the entire migration process
  • Why is it crucial to have a reliable backup and recovery plan in place
  • How to anticipate common challenges and learn how to automate the process
  • Tools to move workloads (both production and non-production) workloads between clouds
  • Tips for developing a clear-cut migration strategy

Managing Data Analytics in a Hybrid Cloud

11:50 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: Daniel Gilfix, senior manager, product marketing - Storage, Red Hat, and Karen Singh, senior architect, Red Hat

Abstract: More and more customers struggle not only to manage the growth of big data, but also to reap timely business insights from data using their existing data infrastructure. Over the past two years, Red Hat has worked closely with customers aiming to solve these problems with a cost-effective, hybrid-cloud infrastructure that can scale to support not only the massive amount of data but also to manage the influx of requests from data scientists needing access to a proliferation of different analytic tools.

Now, infrastructure teams are able to provide self service workload isolated compute environments either through Red Hat OpenStack Platform, or by containerizing analytic tools on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Please join us for a review of how this modern, provisioned data analytics experience is helping customers achieve improvements to TCO and analytic performance.

The Fast Forward Upgrades Show

1:40 - 2:20 p.m.  | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: Chris Janiszewski, OpenStack solutions architect, Red Hat, Darin Sorrentino, OpenStack senior solutions architect, Red Hat, and Maria Brancho, product manager, Red Hat

Abstract: Back in the States, we're all preparing for Thanksgiving and cooking a turkey takes planning and time. Another thing that takes planning and time is upgrading a single OpenStack deployment through three releases of OpenStack with minimal/no impact to downtime.

In order to optimize the time of this session, we've stolen a recipe from television and we're going to demonstrate the upgrade in a 'cooking show' format. We will cover the three over-arching steps of the upgrade and while we let things cook, discuss the finer details around the decisions and experiences some of our customers went through when deciding to leverage the fast forward upgrade process in their own datacenter.
We’ll discuss topics such as workload impact, operational flow and how to recover if you run into issues. Unlike the myth/claim that the tryptophan in turkey will make you sleepy, this session is sure to get your adrenaline pumping.

Automated Migration of Workloads

2:30 - 3:10 p.m. | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: James Labocki, director, project management, Red Hat

Abstract: In this session, we will provide technical details about Red Hat’s infrastructure migration solution that accelerates the adoption of OpenStack by migrating workloads from your traditional hypervisor.

In a fully automated fashion, we will demonstrate how we address all the technical challenges around such migration, including: VM format conversion, network mapping, security groups implementation, load-balancing and throttling conversions over multiple nodes, and v2v tooling performance and capabilities.

For more complex use cases, we will also use Ansible Playbooks to augment the migration capabilities with pre- and post-migration automation. See how it's never been easier to migrate your existing workloads to OpenStack.

Distributed HyperConvergence: Pushing OpenStack and Ceph to the Edge

3:20 - 4:00 p.m. | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: Sean Cohen, senior manager, product management, Red Hat, Giulio Fidente, senior software engineer, Red Hat and Sebastien Han, principal software engineer, Red Hat

Abstract: Over the last couple of years, Edge Computing has emerged to become the hottest trend in infrastructure. Data gravity and the arrival of 5G networks are driving stateful and specialized workloads to the edge, driving infrastructure to iterate at the speed of software.

This talk will showcase OpenStack HCI features enabling Edge functionalities (resources control with containers and more). We’ll present the latest capabilities of OpenStack TripleO for supporting multiple Ceph clusters on Distributed Edge nodes, in support for Distributed NFV, an emerging use case that allows using less control planes and to spread your VNF on multiple datacenters and edge deployments.

We will also review the requirements to maintain carrier grade performance for virtualized or containerized workloads at the edge, by moving processing functions closer to the end user or data collection point and minimizing the latency impact on the applications to maintain end to end quality of service.

Prepare for Edge Services by Virtualizing Your Central Office

11:00 - 11:40 a.m. | Room 7.2a Helsinki 1

Speakers: Ian Hood, global telecommunications architect, Red Hat and Hanen Garcia, global telco solutions manager, Red Hat

Abstract: Red Hat virtual central office solution (VCO) is a central office-based software-defined infrastructure platform from which Telecommunications service providers can deliver multiple end-user services such as mobile broadband and voice over LTE (VoLTE), as well as support network split and network slicing which is critical to the deployment of next generation of mobile networks. As Telecommunications service providers look to deploy 5G over the next 5 years, they will necessarily have to deploy virtualized, or software-defined infrastructure to accommodate the associated workloads. VCO is a common platform from which service providers can deliver value-added services to mobile subscribers, enterprises and residential customers as well as services that support over-the-top applications.

In this session, you will learn how VCO can deliver mobile enterprise and residential services using Red Hat software-defined infrastructure products and Red Hat’s broad Telecommunications partner ecosystem.
