Adobe Advertising Cloud: The Reality of Cloud Bursting with OpenStack

After successfully moving a large workload from a Public Cloud to an OpenStack Private Cloud, the former TubeMogul Operations Engineering team tackled its next important step toward Cloud Bursting.

While experiencing hyper-growth on the Adobe Advertising Cloud, the team had to figure out a simple way to quickly provision new compute resources. Our latency critical workload need our core private resources while some workload can safely leverage public cloud. Cloud Bursting helped to ensure rapid support of the business and provide a more flexible capacity planning strategy. Being able to burst some workload back to the Public Cloud allowed the team to leverage the best of public and private cloud.

In this presentation, we will detail how the team dealt with the network complexity between clouds infrastructure, the cost effectiveness of cloud bursting, the impact on performance, and the hard reality of multi-cloud environments.

What can I expect to learn?

This talk will cover the technical detail of:

  • Bursting workload from an OpenStack private cloud to AWS public cloud
  • The network constraints and challenges while doing cloud bursting
  • What would be the next steps toward full cloud bursting capabilities with multiple public cloud provider like AWS, Azure, and GCP.
  • Lesson Learned and Post Cost Analysis
