  • OpenStack München Meetup – Lets talk about Storage

    Hewlett-Packard GmbH

    OpenStack München Meetup – Lets talk about Storage this time our friends at HP are inviting us to their Munich (Dornach/Ascheim) location. Please note that if you have visited HP in the past, this is a new location they moved to quite recently. We will have two storage talks, as well as a talk and discussion about the use cases of OpenStack for enterprise customers. And of course we will have food, drinks, a lot of interaction and good discussions. Here’s the planned Agenda: 18:30 – 19:00 Food, Drinks and „get together“ 19:00 – 19:45 Manila: OpenStack's Shared File Services Program Manila is the shared file system service and is an incubated OpenStack project since the Juno release. Manila allows tenants to manage shares, e.g., NFS exports, take snapshots, and adjust access rules - among other things. In this talk, we will first present an overview of Manila, discuss its architecture and highlight example use cases. Next, we will provide details on what is new with the project in the Kilo release; finally we will give an outlook on Manila's roadmap. Attendees will leave this talk with a clear understanding of Manila, a better understanding of the applicable use cases, and the future directions for the project. (Thomas Lichtenstein - Netapp) 19:45 - 20:30 Cinder Block (Volumes): Use Cases and Reference Architectures Cinder is an OpenStack project that is often overlooked but can be critical in an OpenStack deployment. In this presentation, Kenneth Hui will walk us through not merely the basics of Cinder, but show how Cinder is being deployed today and review what are the recommended practices and relevant design considerations. This talk will cover both commodity hardware and third-party enterprise storage solutions that integrate with Cinder. (Kenneth Hui – EMC) 20:30 – 21:15 CEPH: The Logical Choice for OpenStack In this talk we are going to see why the CEPH distributed file system is the logical choice for OpenStack storage. We are going to start off the ground by getting an overview of what CEPH does and how it does it and then see how it integrates in the the OpenStack ecosystem outlining the advantages compared to traditional storage approaches. (Mathias Ewald - vXpertise) 21:15 – 22:00 OpenStack & customers: What are enterprises looking to use OpenStack for? Which Use Cases best fit and what are the benefits that customers expect, and what are the risks and obstacles to overcome. (Paul Dawson, Christian Frank – HP) 22:00 Wrap-up of the Meetup I hope to see you all soon in Dornach/Ascheim!
