Our Journey Developing Kubernetes CAPI Provider For Apache CloudStack
David Jumani, ShapeBlue
The Kubernetes Cluster API (CAPI) sub-project aims to simplify and unify the Kubernetes cluster lifecycle management. With almost a dozen provider implementations, we decided to add our own provider implementation for Apache CloudStack. But how simple was it? With several CRDs, controllers, API versions, and even experimental features, and e2e tests to develop, it’s easy to get lost in the details and can seem quite overwhelming. Join us to discover how we did it! We detail our journey, from building an initial prototype over a weekend to a full-fledged, production-ready application, and deployed in an environment with over 10s of 1000s of hosts! We share the pitfalls, hacks, learnings, and key takeaways from our journey to develop CAPC – the CAPI Provider for Apache CloudStack.

What CloudStackers Need To Know About LINSTOR/DRBD
Philipp Reisner, LINBIT
Philipp is going to explain the best performing Open Source software-defined storage software available to Apache CloudStack today. It consists of two well-concerted components. LINSTOR and DRBD. Each of them also has its independent use cases, where it is deployed alone. In this presentation, the combination of these two will be examined. They form the control plane and the data plane of the SDS. We will touch on: Performance, scalability, hyper-convergence (data-locality for high IO performance), resiliency through data replication (synchronous within a site, 2-way, 3-way, or more), snapshots, backup (to S3), encryption at rest, deduplication, compression, placement policies (regarding failure domains), management CLI and webGUI, monitoring interface, self-healing (restoring redundancy after device/node failure), the federation of multiple sites (async mirroring and repeatedly snapshot difference shipping), QoS control (noisy neighbors limitation) and of course: complete integration with CloudStack for KVM guests. It is Open Source software following the Unix philosophy. Each component solves one task, made for maximal re-usability. The solution leverages the Linux kernel, LVM and/or ZFS, and many Open Source software libraries. Building on these giant Open Source foundations, not only saves LINBIT from re-inventing the wheels, it also empowers your day 2 operation teams since they are already familiar with these technologies.

Mentored GSoC Projects At Apache (CloudStack)
Dahn Hoogland, ShapeBlue
Google Summer of Code is a global, online program focused on bringing new contributors into open-source software development. Apache CloudStack has worked with a number of GSoC students for a number of years. But how successful has that been? In this talk, Daan will review the involvement of CloudStack in GSoC and take a look at some of the work done by the GSoC students.

10x Your Cloud Business With Stack Console & CloudStack
Saurabh R, Stack Console Cloud Solutions Pvt Ltd
Every cloud service provider wants to boost their sales, but how? With the help of Stack Console’s reseller management module and CloudStack, a data center or cloud service provider can build resellers/partners and provide them with an automated white-label cloud management platform so they can sell cloud services under their own brand, such as compute, Kubernetes, load balancer, block storage, and so on. Many of resellers are likely to be small and medium-sized businesses that want to get into the cloud market, so this is great news for them. Service providers will still make money whether a customer buys a service directly from them or through one of their resellers. Come to the talk to find out more.

Extending CloudStack To Deliver a Multi Availability Zone Public Cloud
Kshitish Purohit, IndiQus Technologies
This session will cover how 2 or more disparate CloudStack environments can be unified together to set up a cloud across multiple availability zones (AZ). This unification, achieved using the Apiculus solution, can add tremendous value to service providers who, along with operating multiple CloudStack environments, wish to add a business life cycle element (billing, marketing, customer management, support) to their public cloud offering. This is not a technical session and will include a demonstration of a multi-AZ cloud set-up using CloudStack and Apiculus.

The Curious Case Of Cloud Repatriation
Sunando Bhattacharya, IndiQus Technologies
In this session, we will examine how enterprises are realising that Hyperscaler clouds are not the best solution for all their cloud needs and are now repatriating a large part of their workloads to various private cloud platforms. We will also examine how Cloudstack is best placed to address the needs of these enterprises.
