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.

Keeping it Real (Time)

Ever get the feeling your cloud is just a bit too...cloudy? The flexibility and resource utilization that the cloud can offer might seem fantastic at first, but things look a little less rosy when you start thinking about the performance impacts the cloud can have on your applications, right?

Never fear: the OpenStack community hears you and and since Juno, projects like Nova have been on a steady march towards adding the features and capabilities that users with NFV and HPC workloads really need from their cloud. The latest of these Nova features builds upon earlier work to finally make real-time workloads in an OpenStack cloud a reality. In this talk, we take a peek under the Nova hood to see how this feature works and how it ties into earlier work in this area. We then demonstrate why this matters and how you can use this feature and others like it in your own applications.


What can I expect to learn?

This talk is mainly targeted towards attendees working in the Telco/NFV and HPC markets. These attendees are expected to learn about the real time features recently added to OpenStack Nova. In addition, these features build upon many existing features and we will cover some of these as part of the talk.

By the end of the talk, we would hope that attendees will have vastly expanded their knowledge of OpenStack Nova's NFV/HPC capabilities, and would be able to use their knowledge of these capabilities in their own applications.

I'm a software developer working in the OpenStack team at Red Hat. I predominantly work with Nova, where I'm a core reviewer, though I've also been known to tinker with projects all over the OpenStack ecosystem. I previously worked at Intel, where I contributed to OpenStack (Nova and Neutron also) and Open vSwitch (led internal testing and validation efforts). FULL PROFILE
