  • Docker and Kubernetes on CloudStack

    HEPIA - Salle A106

    This meetup is co-organized with the Docker Geneva Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Docker-Geneva/). Talk: Docker (https://www.docker.com/) is kicking butt and taking names, changing the application deployment landscape and disrupting IT operations practices. With a streamlined application packaging process and an easy deployment scenario, docker is bringing containers back to life and questioning the "traditional" cloud architectures based on virtualization hypervisors. However the true strength of Docker comes of the orchestration of multiple containers, which makes distributed application easier to deploy, monitor, scale and make fault tolerant. In this talk we will look at Kubernetes (https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/kubernetes) the Docker orchestration system open sourced by Google. We will show how it integrates nicely with CoreOS a new linux distribution whose sole purpose is to run docker containers. Finally we will show how Docker applications can be managed in the Cloud using Kubernetes, by deploying it on a CloudStack (http://cloudstack.apache.org/) cloud -Exoscale (https://www.exoscale.ch/)- that supports CoreOS templates. Speaker: Sebastien Goasguen (https://twitter.com/sebgoa) built his first compute cluster in the late 90's when they were still called Beowulf clusters while working on his PhD; he has been working on making computing a utility since then. He has done research in grid computing and high performance computing and with the advent of virtualization moved to cloud computing in the mid 2000s. He is currently a Senior Open Source Solutions Architect at Citrix, where he works primarily on the Apache CloudStack project, helping develop the CloudStack ecosystem. Sebastien is a project management committee member (PMC) of CloudStack and Apache libcloud and a member of the Apache Software Foundation, he focuses on the cloud ecosystem and has contributed to Knife-cloudstack, Eutester, Unusable and more recently Kubernetes.

  • Ansible - The Simple IT Automation Tool

    Café de l'Ancienne Gare

    About the talk: Ansible (https://github.com/ansible/ansible): See the simplicity, flexibility and power of distributed configuration management and app deployment. Ansible is made for production! It lets you focus on your work, not on the config management system. You aren't having a developer background? No problem! Get from zero to your first service configured within minutes, without learning another programming language. Ansible, the tool you always have looking for. About the speaker: René Moser (http://renemoser.net/) is a Senior Linux System Engineer at SwissTXT. He is Member of Board Linux User Group Bern and Open Source Software developer. He is the author of git-ftp (https://github.com/git-ftp) and in the top #30 of all ansible project contributers. About the sponsor: Thanks to VeriSign (http://www.verisign.ch/) Fribourg for sponsoring this event.

  • Introduction à la virtualisation pour les développeurs

    • Soirée en partenariat avec le Java User Group Lausanne (http://www.jugl.ch/) L'objectif de cette soirée est de donner un panorama assez complet sur la virtualisation, avec une première partie théorique sur les technologies existantes (contexte d'utilisation, avantages / inconvénients), et une seconde partie axée sur les outils. Autrefois associé au Grid Computing, la virtualisation fait beaucoup parler d'elle depuis l'avènement du Cloud, dont Amazon AWS fut précurseur. Mais dans mon expérience professionnelle la virtualisation est utilisée pour de nombreux autres débouchés : pour des besoins d'infrastructure (tant en interne qu'en externe), mais aussi pour le développement et la Q/A. Les développeurs peuvent par exemple tester leurs codes à tout instant en simulant une livraison client, avant même que leur branche soit intégrée. Après avoir revu la théorie puis les outils, nous parlerons aussi rapidement du Cloud (quelle est la différence avec la virtualisation seule ?) et des outils de gestion de configuration tel que Puppet ou Salt, le tout avec diverses démonstrations si le temps le permet. Pendant cette session, il sera donc question de nombreux outils allant du simple chroot à des outils comme LXC, Vagrant, Xen ou Docker pour ne citer que les plus importants. • Speaker : Sebastien Douche (https://twitter.com/sdouche) Développeur amateur depuis 84, utilisateur de logiciel libre depuis 95, Sébastien ce considère comme un vieux Geek. Il se définit comme fainéant par nature en recherche constante de tout moyen pour faire mieux avec moins d'effort. Professionnellement, il occupe les postes de directeur technique et de responsable R&D chez un éditeur Français, lui permettant d'assouvir ses passions pour le développement logiciel, l'administration système, le coaching technique et la gestion d'organisation.
