The OpenStack Summit is a four-day event covering everything Open Infrastructure. Content includes keynotes, presentations, panels, hands-on workshops, and collaborative working sessions. Expect to hear about the intersection of many open source infrastructure projects, including Ansible, Ceph, Kata Containers, Kubernetes, ONAP, OpenStack and more.
Topics include: Software development pipeline, automated testing, QA, culture & process, policies & compliance, CI/CD ecosystem, repository architecture, unit vs integration testing, deployment maturity model, gitops
Topics include: Running containers at scale, container ecosystem, container networking, container storage, container security, hybrid VM & container architectures, containers & bare metal
Topics include: 5G, cloudlet, distributed computing, Mesh, security, networking, architecture, ease of deployment, edge ecosystem, hardware performance accelerators (e.g. GPUs, ASICs, etc.), hardware profile, IoT, low end-to-end latency, management tools, scaling, edge-enabled applications, physical hardening, QoS, remote/extreme environments, remote troubleshooting, standalone cloudlets, tamper evidence, tamper resistance, VM and container handoff across WAN connections, zero-touch provisioning
Hands-on Workshops offer a window into training for operators and application developers across different projects. Sessions are typically 90 minutes and require an RSVP and some prep work. Bring your laptop and walk away with the skills you need to become an open source contributor.
HPC / GPU / AI
Topics include: AI, computation, cluster, economics, exascale, government, GPUs, grid, HPC, HTC, machine learning, New applications for AI running on OpenStack clouds, Novel/Emerging architectures for GPUs/AI, operations at scale, performance, scientific research,
Open Source Community
Topics include: community management, diversity and inclusion, mentoring, open source governance, ambassadors, roadmap development
Private & Hybrid Cloud
Topics include: architecture, bare metal, economics, hardware, operations, orchestration & hybrid cloud tools, networking, organizational culture & processes, security & compliance, SLAs, storage, upgrades, user experience, vendor selection
Topics include: architecture / hardware, economics, cloud portability, features & needs, federation, hardware, operations / upgrades, multi-tenance, networking, performance, scale, security & compliance, SLAs, storage, open source platforms, tools & SDKs, UI / UX, upgrades, user experience
Telecom & NFV
Topics include: 5G, architecture, NFV, economics, hardware, operations, performance, QoS, SDN, SLAs, standardization e.g. ETSI NFV
OpenStack users and developers gather at the Forum to brainstorm the requirements for the next release, gather feedback on the past version and have strategic discussions that go beyond just one release cycle. Sessions are submitted outside of the Summit Call for Presentations and are more collaborative, discussion-oriented.
