Wrangling Ceph for 1000 Days
Ceph has been an integral part of Ubuntu and Ubuntu OpenStack since the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS release.  As well as distributing Ceph as part of Ubuntu alongside OpenStack, Canonical have deployed and run Ubuntu and Canonical production services built on Ceph provided OpenStack block storage services since the Ceph first stable release, Argonaut.

We’ll be running through a potted history of how Ceph distribution has evolved over the last three years in Ubuntu, how we deploy Ceph as part of Ubuntu OpenStack and the experiences we’ve had of hosting production services for Ubuntu and Canonical using Ceph for block storage services.

Accelerating Cassandra workload on Ceph with all flash PCIe SSDs
PCIe SSDs are becoming increasingly popular for deploying latency sensitive workloads such as database, big data, VDI in enterprise and service provider environments. Customers are exploring low latency workloads on Ceph using PCIe SSDs to meet their performance needs. Apache Cassandra is one such workload that is becoming a de-facto NoSQL database in OpenStack environments. In this session, we will cover a Cassandra workload deployment on Ceph, performance analysis on all PCIe configurations, best practices and recommendations.

Walk Through a Software Defined Everything PoC
Let’s go for a walk through a Software Defined Everything PoC.

This presentation outlines a Software Defined Everything infrastructure that virtualizes compute, network, and storage resources and delivers it as a service. Rather than by the hardware components of the infrastructure, the management and control of the compute, network, and storage infrastructure are automated by intelligent software that is running on the x86 commodity platform.

In this Proof of Concept (PoC), the focus is on achieving high availability and scale-out capabilities for an OpenStack cloud using x86 hardware, the MidoNet plugin for Neutron and Red Hat Ceph Storage while helping reduce operating expense and capital expense. MidoNet is an open source software and achieves network virtualization through GRE or VXLAN overlays with a completely distributed architecture.

This presentation shows how to integrate OpenStack, MidoNet, and Ceph, while using x86 systems and switches managed by xCAT (Extreme Cluster/Cloud Administration Toolkit).

Ceph Community Talk on High-Performance Solid State Ceph
Ceph is under active development to better utilize high-performance solid state devices. Several performance enhancements have been made in the last few releases to unblock the stack limitations leveraging high-performance solid state devices. This talk presents some of these enhancements, and performance comparison between HDD and solid state based Ceph solutions, all using commodity hardware. These advancements are tested to meet a theoretical sustained workload of 400K IOPS, 50% read/50% write.

New Ceph Configurations - High Performance Without High Costs
Erasure Coding is traditionally limited to Archival workloads due to its performance and computational requirements. All Flash Storage changes that and enables Ceph with Erasure Coding to be a viable solution for active workloads as well. You will hear about how Erasure coding and other techniques can be used with Ceph on All Flash Storage to provide the benefits of Flash at affordable costs. We will discuss recent improvements in Ceph to making it a high performance Cinder block Storage solution on Flash, while lowering the overall storage costs.

Transforming the Ceph Integration Tests With OpenStack
The Ceph community lab has hundreds of machines continuously running integration and upgrade tests. OpenStack deeply transformed this infrastructure. It can now be setup with a one-liner by a new Ceph developer. And it can scale out when hundreds of machines are put to work before a release.

Ceph predates OpenStack and the lab was originally designed with bare metal machines and some custom libvirt scripts. Early 2015 the software using this infrastructure (teuthology) was improved with an OpenStack backend. The monolithic test cluster became a federation of OpenStack tenants. When a job is scheduled, it tries to create a few machines using one OpenStack tenant and fallback to another if that fails.

Prior to OpenStack, setting up a lab was a complex process and took days if not weeks of hard work. It can now be done by typing a one-liner and a developer can run a test outside of the Ceph community lab and teardown the resources as soon as it completes. The monolithic test cluster cease to be a dependency for each Ceph developer, which is a good thing for a Free Software community. It also has the nice side effect of reducing the load imposed on the Ceph community lab.

Linux Kernel Hackathon- IO Visor Project Introduction and BPF architecture
The IO Visor Project is an open source project and a community of developers to accelerate the innovation, development, and sharing of new IO and networking functions.

IO Visor brings Universal IO Extensibility to the Linux Kernel and gives IO developers the ability to create applications, publish them, deploy them in live systems without having to recompile or reboot a full datacenter.

This session first presents an overview of the IO Visor Project, its components and use cases.

It then focuses on the programmable data plane abstraction that constitutes the core of the project and the development tools that allow developers to innovate on top of different HW and SW engines.

Linux Kernel Hackathon- IO Visor and Tracing: Use Cases and Applications
The IO Visor Project is an open source project and a community of developers to accelerate the innovation, development, and sharing of new IO and networking functions.

IO Visor brings Universal IO Extensibility to the Linux Kernel and gives IO developers the ability to create applications, publish them, deploy them in live systems without having to recompile or reboot a full datacenter.

This session presents a deep dive on one of the core use cases of the IO Visor Project: its application to tracing to deploy efficient performance monitoring applications of VMs and containers.

With its innovative technology and its ability to enable real-time tracing and monitoring applications to be built directly inside the kernel, the IO Visor Project constitutes an ideal framework for tracing applications.

This session presents a deep dive on one of the core use cases of the IO Visor Project: its application to networking.

IO Visor Project in fact uniquely enables the ability to segment workloads (VMs, containers) and offer advanced networking functions (L3, NAT, …) fully implemented in-kernel and fully distributed across N compute nodes. Those functions can be chained in-kernel to create any arbitrary “network topology” moving past a virtual/physical appliance type of deployment.
