Telco Cloud Next Generation Stack Update: What's Changed with OpenStack-Helm and Tungsten Fabric-Helm

Discuss the latest advancements and milestones reached within both the openstack-helm and Tungsten Fabric-helm projects and how they are being leveraged by Telco Clouds. 

It's been a year since openstack-helm was brought into the openstack namespace.  Review the current stable release, current functionality set, the community gate capabilities, the development tools for contributors and the timeline for additional openstack version support as well as the work occuring to support edge computing. We will also review the status of our undercloud deployment process and those open source tools as well as how we are currently using it at AT&T.

OpenContrail-Helm has also been evolviing.  We'll provide a status on its integration with openstack-helm, the community gate functionality, and new features since our last presentation such as DPDK workloads, Gatewayless Forwarding, Data Plane Encryption, and finally additional features that will enable edge computing.

What can I expect to learn?
  • Learn more about microservices architectures and their benefits.
  • Updates on the ongoing community work in both openstack-helm and Tungsten Fabric-helm.
  • Discuss the gaps we are working to close in the project.
  • Learn about the ecosystem of opensource projects leveraged by AT&T to deploy our clouds.
