RSVP required: Neutron Network Know-How: A Hands-On Workshop for Solving Neutron Nightmares


How often is your pleasant night of sleep interrupted by a Neutron nightmare?  Although Neutron is one the most complex OpenStack projects to troubleshoot, this hands-on workshop will give participants awesome tips for quickly resolving Neutron-centric problems.

Each participant will gain hands-on Neutron troubleshooting experience by receiving credentials to a live OpenStack Kilo environment.  By the end of this workshop, participants will not only know how to identify and fix common Neutron issues but learn the necessary tools to prevent future headaches so you can finally get a good night's rest!

  OpenStack Trove. Attendees will learn how to install, configure and
  operate OpenStack Trove. During the tutorial, they will launch both
  relational and NoSQL databases, configure and operate replicated
  pairs of databases, clusters of MongoDB instances, take backups,
  manage configuration parameters on groups of databases, and learn
  the benefits of DBaaS and OpenStack Trove.

  Attendees will get answers to questions such as:
  • What are the benefits of DBaaS and OpenStack Trove?
  • What are some of the common use-cases for Trove?
  • How do I install and configure Trove?

RSVP required: Getting Started With OpenStack, Hands-On Lab
OpenStack continues to grow exponentially as the de facto standard for open source Cloud platforms. But how can someone quickly get started with learning this exciting new technology? This workshop will walk participants through an overview of the OpenStack components and offer practical suggestions and resources for learning OpenStack. To demonstrate one way to get started, we will assist workshop attendees to set up a multi-node OpenStack cloud, on their laptops, using the RDO distribution.

Participants will be introduced to a range of core cloud functionality. During the workshop, participants will be introduced to the following:

  • Installing OpenStack

  • Walking through the Horizon dashboard

  • Adding new users

  • Adding an image to Glance

  • Defining networks in Neutron

  • Starting a new virtual server

  • Creating and attaching Cinder storage volumes to virtual servers

  • Storing objects in Swift Using the Horizon Dashboard user interface

Instructions to prepare for the workshop will be posted at http://www.rdoproject.org/GettingStartedTokyoLiberty

RSVP required: Deploying and Operating Your OpenStack Cloud with OSAD, Hands-On Lab


This session is to provide a detailed review of how to deploy and operate OpenStack using the community supported Ansible playbooks (OSAD) located on Stackforge GitHub repo (https://github.com/stackforge/os-ansible-deployment). 

We'll focus on:

  • Overall deployment process: the nuts and bolts

  • Brief overview of Ansible

  • How to make environment specific configurations

  • Provide tips and tricks to handling the deployment

  • Let's Build Your Cloud: interactive session

  • Review 3-4 real life examples of how you can automate daily administrative tasks with Ansible

Attendees will be present with all the little details around how to deploy OSAD and things to look out for during the implementation.  Session is intended to be a very interactive and provide 'how-to' answers to building distributed OpenStack clouds.  While all cloud tasks can be executed via the API or CLI tool on a one by one basis, this would not be the best way to handle larger cloud deployments. The need for more of an automated approach to administering OpenStack is now clear. With the many IaaS capabilities OpenStack has to offer coupled with Ansible, an ease of use configuration management tool, assures a more complete cloud implementation.

RSVP Required: Hands on With Kubernetes on OpenStack, Hands-On Lab
Kubernetes is a thriving open source project for managing containerized applications across multiple servers using common best-practices. It is built upon more than a decade of experience running productions workloads at Google.

Kubernetes can run anywhere - cloud or bare metal.

This hands-on workshop will first provide a technical overview of Kubernetes architecture, and how the different components  and concepts work together to manage a cluster of containers. We will cover the basics of Kubernetes installation and administration. Kubernetes is a perfect system to sit on top of OpenStack and manage applications to run on top of the OpenStack cloud. So we will use Kubernetes on top of CoreOs on OpenStack as an exampke and learn how to deploy and manage applications and microservices that are light, portable and self-healing. Doing so, we will also cover the strengths and weaknesses of Kubernetes.

RSVP Required: Heat, Cloud-init & Cloud-config: OpenStack Orchestration Deep Dive, Hands-On Lab


OpenStack has excellent workload orchestration support — except the information required to use it is not always wonderfully accessible. This workshop helps you navigate the orchestration maze.

In this technical workshop, you will be introduced to OpenStack Heat, cloud-init, and the hidden gems in cloud-config. Working on a live OpenStack infrastructure, you will learn how to deploy Heat orchestration templates, optimize instance configuration with cloud-init and cloud-config, and learn how to customize individual instances right from your Heat command line or the OpenStack Dashboard.

This workshop has already been presented twice, at OpenStack DACH in Berlin and at OpenStack Israel in Tel Aviv. In both instances, attendees reported the talk being an eye-opener, specifically with regards to relatively unknown features in cloud-init and cloud-config.

The Tokyo version comes with the latest relevant updates for Liberty.
