Özgür Bal OpenStack Leave a Comment

It’s time to gear up for the upcoming OpenStack Summit in Berlin and we are really excited to meet up with the community this fall.

On Tuesday the OpenStack Summit Berlin agenda was announced and what an agenda it is! A special thanks to the programming committee for their hard work. They are the ones who reviewed 750 submissions, from over 500 companies and turned it into the final agenda that we will all enjoy in November. The Summit offers more than 100 sessions and workshops covering 35 open source projects over nine tracks. Are you planning on attending the event? Get your tickets right here.

Read on to learn more about our contributions and some great tips on how to navigate the Berlin Summit agenda.

Our contributions

This Summit we will be sharing our thoughts and knowledge about Kubernetes with magnum, Neutron and the opportunities and challenges of public clouds.

Practical Kubernetes with OpenStack Magnum

Presenters: Florian Haas, Tyler DeRosa-Grund, Byron G McCollum
Track: Hands-On Workshops
Level: Advanced

You run OpenStack and want Kubernetes? Magnum to the rescue.

In this workshop, we’ll introduce you to the basics of OpenStack Magnum. You’ll also learn about the basics of Kubernetes, and will then deploy your own Kubernetes cluster template, and a Kubernetes cluster, to your Magnum environment. Then, you’ll use your brand-new Kubernetes cluster for a deployment of several interconnected services, and be introduced to service storage persistence and scaling. This is as hands-on as it gets, and you’ll be going from zero to Kubernetes to running application in 90 minutes.

Neutron: Connecting external network resources to OpenStack

Presenter: Magnus Bergman
Track: Public Cloud
Level: Intermediate

As a public cloud provider we often encounter customers that want to connect their OpenStack Networks (either provider or tenant) to external networks (local or remote). In this talk we explore different methods of accomplishing that and issues that might be seen while doing so. The talk is based on standard features in Neutron/ML2/OVS.

Public Cloud: The opportunity and challenges – and why open is key!

Presenter: Johan Christenson
Track: Public Cloud
Level: Intermediate

How do you compete with the hyperscalers? What makes some of the OpenStack based public clouds so unique and attractive? Why are open public clouds important for the digital transformation for all companies?

Get insight into running a public cloud from technical challenges to the economics to how open collaboration makes the difference! Equally – get insights from real customers using public cloud.

Can open public clouds work together to create an even more compelling story for the users? We believe so and you will learn how.

How to navigate the OpenStack Summit Berlin agenda

Allison Price with the OpenStack Foundation wrote a really good article on how to get the most out of the Berlin Summit and we found it so good that we just had to share it. In her article you will find all of her thoughts on navigating the Summit along with tons of good links and tips. Here is a condensed teaser of her guide:

  • Start with the 101
    • Search for sessions that are tagged 101 of filter the schedule to find sessions marked as beginner. Don’t miss out on the networking opportunities!
  • Find the users
    • If you enjoy learning how open infrastructure is being used in production, make sure to filter for the case study tag.
  • Filter by use case
    • Egde computing, CI/CD or AI – Filter by use case to find operators, developers and ecosystem companies pursuing that usecase.
  • Serach the relevant open source projects
    • Over 35 open source projects are covered by the Summit sessions. Make sure to meet the developers and operators behind your favourite ones.
