  7. 7. What is OpenStack?• OpenStack is – a big community – A stack of open source software (Apache 2.0 license)• Provides an operating platform / toolkit for orchestrating clouds.• Contains a collection of open source projects that are community-maintained – Compute (code named “Nova”) – Storage (code named “Swift”) – Imaging Service (code named “Glance”) – Others in work (Network as a Service, Volume as a Service, etc)• OpenStack’s basic requirement: “Clouds must be simple to implement and massively scalable”• Open Standards and versatility: – Amazon APIs are supported – Multiple hypervisors (Xen, KVM, Release name Release dateVMWare, Hyper-V, etc. Austin October 21, 2010 Bexar February 3, 2011 Cactus April 15, 2011• Diablo September 22, 20117 Confidential Revolutionary Cloud Solutions

  17. 17. Dell’s Crowbar: deployment toolkit andongoing operation modelMission: “A Zero-Touch Cloud Installer”Servers in boxes to fully functioning cloud in under 2 hours• Fast & Flexible – Bare metal install including BIOS & RAID config – Choose how the system is configured via “barclamps”• DevOps Embracing – Ongoing Operations Model (DevOps for Clouds) for continuous integration and management – Leverages and wraps Opscode Chef – Integrates Nagios and Ganglia monitoring tools• Open – Not specific to OpenStack – can be used with other applications – Not restricted to Dell hardware – Apache 2 licensed17 Confidential Revolutionary Cloud Solutions
  18. 18. Dell’s Crowbar: Adding Value to OpenStack Crowbar Architecture• Deploys multi-node OpenStack clouds onto bare metal Dell PowerEdge C servers in less than two hours vs. days manually• Functionality includes – BIOS config, RAID config, Network discovery, Deployment of Nagios and Ganglia monitoring tools, and more• Continuous integration• Modular design (core + barclamps)• Use cases beyond OpenStack – Hadoop, VMware Cloud Foundry 18 Confidential Revolutionary Cloud Solutions
  19. 19. Crowbar Components• Crowbar was developed by Dell to address OpenStack installation challenges & ongoing management complexities – Leverages solutions work and open source components into an integrated suite• At a high-level, the operational challenges Crowbar addresses include: node discovery, network configuration, BIOS update/config, provisioning of ops services (DNS, NTP, etc), and mapping application configuration into the available infrastructure –Sledgehammer: Configures BIOS for nodes in OpenStack environment –Barclamp: Configures networking, defines roles and recipes for nodes in Openstack environment (services, applications)Moving forward, the vision is for Crowbar to manage large production environmentsStrategically for Dell, Crowbar:• Creates good will with development partners and customers by reducing their install and operational time-to-market lag time• Promotes “works best on Dell” by integrating with our server and network hardware to speed deployments• Reduces effort required to gain and service customers with faster, more accurate deployments19 Confidential Revolutionary Cloud Solutions

  23. 23. DreamHost Expands Cloud and StorageServices with Dell OpenStack Cloud Challenge DreamHost was in need of a flexible, open source cloud platform for their public cloud compute Solution DreamHost uses Dell hardware for its core business —shared hosting, dedicated hosting and virtual private server hosting—as well as its emerging businesses. For its OpenStack cloud, DreamHost is using the Crowbar barclamp for Nova. The company is writing its own barclamp for its Ceph storage solution.“If Dell tried to have a sales Benefits • Took advantage of Dell’s OpenStackperson sell us, we probably reference architecture and deploymentwouldn’t have bought it. Dell frameworksolved a problem that we had. • Saved 4-6 months of software developmentAnd when Dell solved that workproblem, our engineers thought, • Leveraged cloud and scale-out servers and‘We’re going to use this.’” reference architecture • Realized business advantages of leasingBen Cherian, general manager of emerging with Dell Financial Servicestechnologies, DreamHost Revolutionary Cloud Solutions
