Radio Free Asia

  1. 1. OpenStack andRadio Free Asia
  2. 2. Mission StatementRadio Free Asia’s mission is to provide accurate and timely news and information toAsian countries whose governments prohibit access to a free press. Guided by thecore principles of freedom of expression and opinion, RFA serves its listeners byproviding information critical for informed decision-making.RFA is mandated to broadcast to China, Tibet, North Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia,Laos, and Burma. RFA’s programming primarily comprises domestic news andinformation of unique and specific interest to its listeners. All broadcasts are solelyin local language(s) and dialects. Each RFA language service is distinctive,reflecting the particular culture, language, and preferences of its listeners.RFA adheres to rigorous journalistic standards of objectivity, accuracy, and fairness.RFA aims, in turn, to retain the greatest confidence among its listeners and to serveas a model on which others may shape their own emerging journalistic traditions.

  10. 10. f2c Project Funding
  11. 11. f2c Project Funding• Cooperation between developers – best practices – promote synergies• Global shared infrastructure – scalable to needs and events• Funding targeted to technical development strengths• Quality assurance - due diligence – cross tool applications
  12. 12. f2c Components: Technical Council [academic – private sector – development – hybrid]• Receives and reviews initial project proposals within the f2c framework and principles• Approves projects for sandbox deployment testing• Reviews project progress and approves for due diligence and test deployment• Provides guidance to Coordinate development between projects• Reviews ongoing projects and development in the space for assessment of new and continued funding
  13. 13. f2c Components: Security Audit /RED TEAM• Technical due diligence• Test and reports on project security to assist developers in strengthen their tools• Test and reports on project performance to assist impact, help sustain security and guarantee privacy protection
  14. 14. f2c Components: Analytics• Track behavior anomalies• Traffic analytics and load• Project levels utilization• Infrastructure performance in different environments
  15. 15. f2c Components: Global IaaSIsolated sandbox development and test environment Global cloud deployment infrastructure (double blind)
  16. 16. Open Stack• Massively scalable open source cloud operating system.• A global community of developers, cloud computing technologists and over 120 companies have put their support behind OpenStack. OpenStack Compute: •Designed to provision and manage large networks of virtual machines (VM) •Creates a redundant and scalable cloud computing platform •Provides all the tools required to orchestrate a cloud
  17. 17. Open StackOpenStack Object Storage:•Creates redundant and scalable object storage, using clusters ofcommodity servers to store petabytes of accessible data•No master point of control, scalability, redundancy and permanence•Storage clusters scale horizontally with whole nodes hot swappableOpenStack Image Service:•Provides discovery, registration and delivery services for virtual diskimages•Standard REST interface for querying information about VMs and avariety of backend stores, including Object Storage•Allows uploads of private and public images in the multiple-formats
