The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The open infrastructure landscape is changing, and so is the Summit. Now that users are integrating dozens of open source tools into a modern stack that reaches well beyond the scope of OpenStack, we’re re-organizing the event to focus on specific problem domains like container infrastructure, edge computing and CI/CD and we are focusing on the hard work of integrating all of these tools developed in disparate communities. This is the essential work of 2018 and beyond, to ensure that open infrastructure is truly a viable path for operators.

Event Details


Empowering Ironic with Redfish Support

Redfish is an IPMI replacement standardized by the DMTF. It provides a RESTful API for server out of band management and a lightweight data model specification that is scalable, discoverable and extensible. We will start by detailing its role and the features it provides with examples

We will then cover the current status around a python library offering Redfish abstractions useful to provide Redfish support for python based solutions such as Ironic in OpenStack. In particular we will detail how this is beneficial for Ironic through power management, information inventory, and how we intend to adapt Ironic to add support for the Redfish specification with new drivers

These developments are made to support the deployment of HPE Moonshot cartridges hosting a customer video transcoding application

Finally, we'll disclose the Alexandria project to add CMDB support (iTop e.g.) into a Software Defined Infrastructure using Ironic and Redfish based machines

Recorded demos will be available


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees are expected to learn about a new standard for out of band server management which is providing what the IT industry has been waiting for for years. They will be informed of our efforts on the python library developed to support it, and of the work done in Ironic to integrate it. This will help the OpenStack community of users and developers adopt as early as possible this new technology, add support for it in the other deployment tools used in the ecosytem (such as fuel, cobbler, ansible...) and hopefully will bring more contributors to all the projects to allow a real Software Defined Infrastructure management.
