    Why Open Cloud Platforms are important - OSCON 2013 Why Open Cloud Platforms are important - OSCON 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • Breaking through the clouds Andy Piper @andypiper
    • Hello I’m Andy
    • a few things about me Developer Advocate @ Cloud Foundry social web enthusiast maker, educator, LEGO fan OSS contributor Eclipse Project Lead (Paho / MQTT) excited by “what’s next”, Internet of Things, etc. @andypiper apiper@gopivotal.com
    • Developer Advocate? hell yeah!
    • 3 themes to consider openness, cloud computing, and where they intersect
    • 1. Why be / do / think Open? 2. What about Cloud? 3. Why is an Open Cloud Platform important?
    • 1. Why be / do / think Open?
    • An important year in software 1991 Hello everybody out there using minix - I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. From:  torvalds@klaava.Helsinki.FI Newsgroups:  comp.os.minix Date:  25  Aug  91  20:57:08  GMT Organization:  University  of  Helsinki
    • ~21 years later: Linux has won
    • Linux runs everywhere (even old versions, on crashy airline entertainment systems...) #P0WN ALL TEH GADGETZ !
    • It runs on Windows Azure! Jun 2012, w. Canonical
    • The Penguin is triumphant! (maybe not this one…)
    • Linux is ubiquitous (but often invisible)
    • It works.
    • 2. What about Cloud?
    • 3 layers IaaS, PaaS, SaaS Infrastructure Platform Software Gmail, Salesforce, Flickr, Google Docs... Amazon EC2, Google CE, OpenStack, vSphere, Joyent, Rackspace, Cloud Stack, Eucalyptus... Google AppEngine, Heroku, Cloud Foundry, EngineYard, OpenShift, Azure, Apprenda...
    • How did we get here?
    • Infrastructure Clouds - consumer web companies built out according to their own needs to support Software
    • But - still need to build & manage Platform
    • Google AppEngine, Heroku, Cloud Foundry, OpenShift, Stackato, Cloudbees, AppFog, Amazon Elastic Beanstalk, Apprenda, anynines...
    • Why is it so hard...? A real deployment flow (!)
    • An alternative approach... Cloud Foundry can make it simpler! deploy  <my  cloud> target  <my  cloud> push  <my  app> bind  <my  services> scale  <my  app>  +100 add_capacity  <my  cloud>
    • 3. Why is an Open Cloud Platform important?
    • Platform risk: lock-in Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place Such a lovely face Plenty of room at the Hotel California Any time of year, you can find it here Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door I had to find the passage back To the place I was before ‘Relax,’ said the night man, ‘We are programmed to receive. You can checkout any time you like, But you can never leave!’
    • Cloud Foundry - the Open PaaS Open Source Micro   Clouds Private   Clouds Public   Clouds CUSTOM SERVICES CUSTOM RUNTIMES
    • Architectural view
    • All about Choice Private Clouds Public Clouds Micro Clouds Build your own from github.com/cloudfoundry, buy from Pivotal, or run a compatible private version Run in a local virtual machine with identical services and runtimes (nise-bosh, cf-vagrant) Run on run.pivotal.io or any Cloud Foundry- powered PaaS
    • All the pieces to make your own! “if you can’t open it, you don’t own it” (O’Reilly/MAKE)
    • Open & public from the start Code all on Github
    • Not all PaaSes are created equal... Run on: AWS, OpenStack, vSphere... more to come!
    • Learning how to be open What is Pivotal?
    • Pivotal’s Cloud vision: Open by Default Cloud Fabric is OSS
    • 4. Where are we, 18 months on?
    • version 2.0 all the shiny toys!
    • Welcome, IBM! the Open PaaS of choice, on top of OpenStack and Linux
    • Velocity growing community, moar committers!
    • Build-it-yourself use Vagrant to run a local instance for testing
    • Join us! ... a pull request is all it takes!
