open source license they were distributing their software on. More and more
it feels like Open Source is just a marketing buzzword designed to lure
customers to a particular solution. On the regulatory front, the EU is
implementing the CRA and handling software as it were trucks
manufacturing. Is there any hope left for Open Source? Has it failed in
delivering its premise?
Fear not. Open Source’s not dead. It has already won and it will prevail
In this talk we’ll dive into the specifics of the security groups on the KVM hypervisor for both IPv4 and IPv6
This presentation explores the realm of possibilities and demonstrates how CloudStack can enhance the privacy and security of your cloud deployments. We will examine practical approaches to protect sensitive data, fortify communications, and secure your infra against emerging threats. Join us on a journey to discover how CloudStack can be your trusted ally in the quest for a more secure and private cloud environment.
One is the ability to optionally store data snapshots on secondary storage, about making deep copies of templates vs. using snapshots, about using LINSTOR/DRBD on XCP-ng hypervisors under ApacheCloudStack, and (if finished by November) about VM-snapshots on LINSTOR/DRBD.
In this talk, we will delve into the expansion of ACS’s SDN ecosystem with the integration of VMWare NSX 4, thus enabling operators to make informed decisions regarding the right SDN platform for their CloudStack deployment, we’ll also look into what it takes to create a new network provider in CloudStack.
They will also give a demo of the new features of the project and its integration with CloudStack, providing an all-in-one solution.
We’ll show a reference architecture of the solution, followed by a live demo on how to set backup policies, backup virtual machines and recover the VMs in a site-down event.
The workshop will allow an open discussion about the practical aspects of implementing a DR service, difficulties to build such solutions and how to address them.
To the best of our knowledge, software development is yet to be included in the makerspace concept. In the case of our software makerspace, it is following the same principles as a traditional makerspace for device and mechanical prototyping, but instead provides software development tools. One such indispensable tool is cloud-based infrastructure. A cloud facilitates rapid prototyping of machine learning tools, microservices, IoT data mining, etc. In this talk, we present our approach to extend the concept of a makerspace to software development using a student developed private cloud. We present the method we used to gather requirements from various researchers and students. We also present the final design and the current implementation of the cloud using Apache CloudStack. Finally, we discuss how other universities could implement their own software makerspace and its benefits.
Knowing about DRBD’s meta-data, the activity log, and the bitmap will enable you to make more educated decisions when it comes to selecting the right hardware for your next ApacheCloudStack+LINSTOR+DRBD deployment.
When your servers have different storage tiers, what are the advantages and trade-offs regarding putting data and meta-data on different tiers?
Recently, DRBD got a new transport, load-balancing TCP, that joins the existing TCP transport, and the RDMA transport received important updates. Looking beyond DRBD, what is important to know when selecting the RAID level and data alignment? Philipp will conclude the session with comments regarding LVM compared to ZFS.
This session aims to equip newcomers to Apache CloudStack with the fundamental knowledge and practical skills required to establish their own cloud infrastructure. We’ll address common challenges that beginners often encounter during the setup process and provide valuable insights on how to overcome them.
Introduction to Apache CloudStack
Prerequisites and system requirements
Step-by-step installation and configuration
Creating and managing virtual machines (VMs)
Networking essentials in CloudStack
Storage options and management
User and role management
Troubleshooting common beginner issues
This session is tailored for individuals who are new to Apache CloudStack or cloud computing in general. No prior experience with CloudStack is required, making it suitable for beginners seeking to gain a solid foundation in cloud infrastructure management.
The session will consist of a combination of presentations and live demonstrations. Attendees will have the opportunity to follow along with the setup process in real-time and ask questions during Q&A sessions.
We will delve into the benefits of Apache CloudStack, including its cost-effectiveness and open-source nature, and discuss how a gradual migration from VMware vCloud can reduce ownership costs, increase profitability, and enhance competitiveness. We will also cover the practical steps and considerations in planning and executing this transition effectively.
With Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), we strengthen the authentication process, mitigate password-related or usual login vulnerabilities, and ensure compliance with security standards.
On the other side of the authentication spectrum, OAuth2, the industry-standard authorization framework, simplifies the process of granting access to resources. We will discuss how this can be used and how it fits in CloudStack.
This session will simplify the troubleshooting process involved with Cloudstack and will quickly help to resolve the issue.
Magali, Joffrey, and Grégoire will present a case study of a successful hardware reuse project, including key metrics:
Join us to see the live demo of the integration and automation capabilities.
Some of the key features to be showcased are:
- Infrastructure Provisioning and Configuration
- VM operations & lifecycle management
- Infrastructure Management & Monitoring
– look at the history of CloudStack virtual router upgrades and how they have evolved towards this point
– look in detail at the new “Live patching” functionality in CloudStack 4.17 which enables zero downtime upgrades
– discuss the limitations of the new functionality
– demo the new upgrade process
The talk will also discuss the design and implementation of other recent changes in the virtual router, such as:
– systemvmtemplate improvements
– turn-key bundling of systemvmtemplates for automatic setup and upgrades
– deprecation of systemvm.iso
And discuss the future roadmap of VR and related next-gen networking features, the new VR agent and further improvements.
Key challenges of Datacenters on becoming a Cloud Datacenter and how stackbill solves it. New Features of StackBill added 2022 which would help datacenter, enterprises and telcos on measuring and maximizing their business.
