Summit Tracks

Open Infrastructure

The Open Infrastructure 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.

Container Infrastructure
Topics include: Running containers at scale, container ecosystem, container networking, container storage, container security, hybrid VM & container architectures, containers & bare metal

Hands-On Workshops
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.

AI, Machine Learning, HPC
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

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

Public Cloud
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

Edge Computing
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

Open Development
Topics include: the 4 opens, the future of free and open source software, challenges of open collaboration, open development best practices and tools, open source governance models, diversity and inclusion, mentoring and outreach, community management.

Getting Started
Beginner-level track to learn the basics about all open infrastructure-related topics.

CI/CD
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

Telecom & NFV
Topics include: 5G, architecture, NFV, economics, hardware, operations, performance, QoS, SDN, SLAs, standardization e.g. ETSI NFV

Security
Topics include: Attestation, authenticity, authorization, data protection, encryption, identification, policy enforcement, privacy, regulatory compliance, risk management, trusted computing, vulnerability tracking/mitigation

Forum

Users and developers gather at the Forum to brainstorm requirements for upcoming releases, gather feedback on past versions and have strategic discussions that go beyond just the present. Sessions are submitted outside of the Summit Call for Presentations and are more collaborative, discussion-oriented.
