The annual O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON), brings developers and innovators together with investors and businesspeople to shape the future of open source. July 21 is Open Cloud Day at OSCON 2015, featuring innovations and expertise on public and private clouds, IaaS and PaaS platforms.

Internap’s Bruno Morel will discuss the benefits and challenges of a hybridized, OpenStack-based bare metal and virtual cloud infrastructure.

Description:
Provisioning servers has long been service providers’ bread and butter, but in recent years customer demand for higher-performing bare metal instances has increased dramatically, along with their interest in integrating bare metal infrastructure with virtualized public clouds. This shift in the types of infrastructure that customers are demanding is motivating service providers to create more efficient ways of both provisioning bare metal infrastructure, and integrating it into their customers’ overall infrastructure mix. OpenStack has recently emerged as a key platform in making both of these developments possible.

Focusing on the creation of a hybridized, OpenStack-based bare metal and virtual cloud infrastructure, this technical talk will look at the challenges encountered, as well as the solutions developed to successfully deliver bare metal instances with Ironic and hybrid bare metal and virtual infrastructure. Specific topics that will be covered include:

  • Networking model and automation
  • Deployment of cells
  • Integration with third party software
  • Security
