The Future of Containers in Linux - James Bottomley, Parallels
Containers in the Cloud has been receiving a lot of attention recently. If you look at the available containers technology (OpenVZ, ZeroVM, Docker, LXC, OpenShift, lmctfy ...) You'd think that there'd been even more proliferation and competition in the Linux containers space than in hypervisors with Xen and KVM. However, the reality is somewhat different. Thanks to a massive collaborative between most of the containers players on the upstream kernel, the underlying technology used to create containers that run on Linux is essentially the same. The
differences lie in the ways containers are created and managed from the point of view of which pieces of the in-kernel container technology they make use of.

Looking to the future, the enterprise embrace of containers, while great, leaves some CIOs worrying about their hardware investments in virtualization technology like SR-IOV and NFV.

This talk will survey the current state of container technology in Linux, what the control plane differences are between all the competing technologies, and how we might begin to standardise container technology and give some speculation about future container advances that will allow them to reuse hardware designed for hypervisors.

Introduction to a Virtualization Testsuite Based on Autotest Testing Framework - Fergus Yu, Fujitsu
Autotest is an open-source project, which provides a framework for fully
automated testing. It is designed primarily to test the Linux kernel, though
it is useful for many other functions such as verifying new hardware and
testing virtualization under Linux platforms.It is composed of a framework
and several testsuites that rely on the core libraries in the framework.
Virt-test is one of the testsuites which is used for testing different Linux
virtualization hypervisors. As Cloud Computing becomes more and more popular
in the world, virtualization, the base of it, is also important increasingly.
So in order to keep the virtualization infrastructure function and stable,
we need a way to test virtualization functions automatically and rapidly,
and virt-test is on this purpose. In this presentation, Yu Mingfei will introduce

Large Scale Identification of Race Conditions (In OpenStack CI) - Joe Gordon, OpenStack
Does your project have a CI system that suffers from an ever-growing set of race conditions? We have the tool for you: it has enabled increased velocity despite project growth.
Richard Stallman once said, “it turned out that debugging these asynchronous multithreaded programs was really hard.” With 30+ asynchronous services developed by over 1000 people the OpenStack project is an object lesson of this problem. One of the consequences is race conditions often leak into code with no obvious defect. To address this problem we have developed an ElasticSearch based toolchain called “elastic-recheck.” This helps us track race conditions so developers can fix them and identify when CI failures are related to the failed patch or are due to a known pre-existing race condition. elastic-recheck has saved countless hours while allowing us to better manage our race conditions.

New World of OpenStack RESTful API - Ken'ichi Ohmichi, NEC-Soft
The community of OpenStack Compute project(Nova) is discussing the design and the purpose of a new RESTful API now. The API is called "Nova v3 API".
The features of v3 API are "consistent API naming", "strong input validation", and "clean code".
We already started developing v3 API one year ago, and the most part has been implemented.
However, some core developers proposed the API should be dropped, because we have renamed many API attributes for the consistency and the fact will cause a lot of backward incompatibility issues to Nova API users. In addition, there are huge amount of RESTful APIs as Nova API, the developers concerned the maintenance cost for keeping both API versions(v2 and v3).

Quick Overview on OpenStack Block Storage Layer - Masaki Kimura, Hitachi
 In cloud environments, there are a variety of systems running for different workloads. Each workload tends to have its own requirements, such as reliability, performance, and functionality. Therefore, cloud systems need to provide users with choices which can satisfy requirements from these workloads.
This presentation focuses on the choices of block storages for OpenStack. In OpenStack, block storages are managed by a component called Cinder. Cinder manages multiple types of data resources as block storages via the plugin for each data resource. Currently Cinder plugins for many types of data resources are available, from LVM and nfs to cluster filesystems and enterprise storages.
This presentation will show the characteristics of these Cinder plugins, comparison among the Cinder plugins from the view point of workloads of the systems in cloud environments.

How NUMA Balancing Moves KVM Guests - Takuya Yoshikawa, NTT OSSC
NUMA Balancing is a feature we can find in recent Linux kernels, since the 3.8 kernel, which automatically moves tasks and their memory so that each task can use as much memory from the same NUMA node as possible. Since using more local memory results in better performance on NUMA systems, we can expect applications to perform better even without manually pinning and binding their threads.

In this presentation, the speakers will show some test results about how NUMA balancing behaves on a KVM host whose guests should get the best performance when they run within one NUMA node. In addition, they will discuss what is missing to fully replace the current way to pin and bind KVM guests, using libvirt for example, with this automatic balancing by the kernel.

Deploying OpenStack with Kickstack - Syed Armani, hastexo
OpenStack is an open source platform for building public and private clouds. In this presentation, we discuss Kickstack. Kickstack is a pure-Puppet rapid deployment system for OpenStack. It uses Puppet modules hosted at StackForge that are also available through the Puppet Forge. Using a simple scheme of “node roles” expressed as classes in a Puppet module, you can use Kickstack to easily run, deploy and configure OpenStack using nothing but a Puppet manifest, an External Node Classifier (ENC), or both.

The primary audience for this tutorial is anyone from sysadmins, students to researchers. Who want to deploy OpenStack in an automated way. Which is far less complex than manually deploying various components of OpenStack. From this tutorial people will learn how to deploy various components of OpenStack using Kickstack. They can have a small OpenStack cloud up and running in 30 mins using Kickstack.

This tutorial will help people understanding that deploying OpenStack is not as difficult as it appears. This will help them in deploying OpenStack in an automated fashion and this will also help them in making an informed decision about adopting OpenStack for their production workloads.

Introduction to Apache CloudStack - David Nalley, Citrix
IaaS clouds are gaining in popularity. The automated provisioning they perform is vital to the fast paced infrastructure that folks demand. Apache CloudStack is one of the leading open source IaaS platforms available. We'll review the history and architecture of Apache CloudStack and talk about best practices for implementing it; and then see some real world use. 

The audience is anyone interested in the future of the systems administration trade of Infrastructure as a Service.

The presentation will help sysadmins who are looking to deploy IaaS better understand their options.

Sheepdog: Software-Defined Storage System For Converged Infrastructure - Hitoshi Mitake, NTT
Sheepdog is a software defined storage system for converged infrastructure developed as OSS. Its completely symmetric architecture enables scale out, easy to manage virtualized environment without expensive storage appliances. Sheepdog has been started as a software which provides virtual disks to QEMU originally. But recent development effort is significantly improving its capability and adding new features. In this talk, the recent results of development is presented. Especially, remarkable results are:
  1. Erasure coding: New coding scheme for improving both of space efficiency and writeperformance without losing reliability is added. 
  2. iSCSI interface: The standard interface of SAN is supported. The virtual disks can be used by hypervisors other than KVM and bare metal OSes. 
  3. Object atorage feature: Object storage interface like AWS S3 and Openstack Swift is supported.
In addition, performance comparison with Ceph and GlusterFS is presented.

Invest for the Future: Our Motivation For The Upstreaming Effort - Hisao Munakata, Executive Manager at Renesas
Now almost 80% of Linux kernel patches are submitted by professional programmer who belongs to the industry. Traditionally Enterprise giant like IBM, Red Hat and Intel played a leadership role in the kernel development and now you can see many embedded semiconductor companies
join the development to make Linux support wider use case. This is very good thing, but can you imagine why major company committed to opensource development so much? Some people seem still wondering the how can we justify the investment for the kernel development as the work result can be shared by anyone who did not spend money. Renesas had been working for upstreaming and now we can say the value of upstreaming is much more than just a social contribution activity. In this keynote, I want to introduce our motivation of upstreaming work and how we utilized the work result to the real business case.
