Developing on OpenStack Startup Edmonton Developing on OpenStack Startup Edmonton Presentation Transcript

  • Developing on OpenStack April 17, 2014 Startup Edmonton Curtis Collicutt & David Ackerman {curtis.collicutt, david.ackerman}@cybera.ca
  • Agenda ● 11:50 - What is OpenStack? ● Foundation ● How is it made? ● Releases and components ● Compare contrast w/ AWS, APIs... ● Developing on OpenStack ● How to try OpenStack ● Community ● 12:25 - Grab lunch ● 12:30 - David demo starts
  • ● Cybera is a not-for-profit organization responsible for overseeing the development of Alberta’s cyber- infrastructure ● http://www.cybera.ca/
  • - 3 key areas 1. Designing and operating Cyberanet, Alberta’s public ultra high-speed network 2. Piloting research and innovation projects that apply the power of this network 3. Fostering business growth by opening up this network to entrepreneurs working on bringing technology to market
  • Questions 1. How many of you are developers? 2. Enterprise? Startups? Non-profit? SMB? 3. Used Amazon Web Services (AWS)? 4. Run their business on AWS or IaaS or Paas? 5. Heard of OpenStack? 6. Used OpenStack? 7. Deployed OpenStack? 8. Contributed to OpenStack?
  • What is OpenStack?
  • OpenStack is ● Open source software for building private and public clouds ● Arguably most successful open source project, after Linux ● 1000+ developers in 80 countries ● “Giant ball of mostly Python”
  • What OpenStack is not ● Not a hypervisor ○ Uses hypervisors, and supports several, but is not a hypervisor itself ● Not a product
  • OpenStack ● Open ● Create public, private, & hybrid clouds ● Commercial support ● Thriving ecosystem
  • Platinum & Gold Members Innovative Ecosystem 8
  • Diverse Use Cases User Footprint
  • OpenStack Foundation
  • Protecting, Empowering, and Promoting OpenStack software and the community around it, including users, developers and the entire ecosystem. • Over 9,500 Individual Members, up from 5,600 at launch • The leading Global IT companies as Gold & Platinum Members • Board of Directors that sets strategic direction • Project Technical Leads and a Technical Committee that are elected from among the contributors • User Committee to ensure the users voices are heard The OpenStack Foundation
  • Provide a permanent legal home for OpenStack, with broad industry support and the resources to support OpenStack’s success While preserving what’s working – a.k.a. the “OpenStack Way” • Technical people making technical decisions based on merit • Dedicated resources building the community and ecosystem • A strong ecosystem of companies making money • Encouraging and rewarding contribution in all forms Foundation Approach
  • Expecting 4000+ in Hong Kong: November 5-8, 2013 OpenStack Summit Attendee Growth
  • May 12 - 16, 2014, Atlanta
  • OpenStack Development (how it’s made)
  • OpenStack development ● 115,206 commits made by 2,130 contributors ● representing 1,766,546 lines of code ● took an estimated 500 years of effort (COCOMO model) ● Development model is meritocracy
  • Time-Based Release Cycle New software release every six months, with interim milestones Twice Yearly Design Summits Immediately following software release to plan next version Sessions led by developers and Project Technical Leads Broad Contributions 1000 developers, from over 50 companies worldwide Elected Leadership Developers elect their own Project Technical Leaders Open Development Process Technology Platform
  • Open ● Open source ● Open design ● Open development ● Open community
  • Result ● Choice ● Rapid development ● Feature rich ● Customizable and extendable ● Scale ● Worldwide adoption ● Jobs ● Wealth creation
  • OpenStack Releases & Components
  • OpenStack Cloud Platform Technology Platform Code available under Apache 2.0 license. Design tenets – scale & elasticity, share nothing & distribute everything
  • OpenStack components Horizon Dashboard / Web UI Nova Compute Keystone Authentication / Users / Service Catalog Neutron Networking-as-a-service Glance Images Cinder Block storage Swift Object storage Ceilometer Metrics and monitoring Heat Orchestration
  • Release Codename Release Date Integrated Components Austin 21 Oct 2010 Nova, Swift Bexar 3 Feb 2011 Nova, Glance, Swift Cactus 15 Apr 2011 Nova, Glance, Swift Diablo 22 Sep 2012 Nova, Glance, Swift Essex 5 Apr 2012 Nova, Glance, Swift, Horizon, Keystone Folsom 27 Sep 2012 Nova, Glance, Swift, Horizon, Keystone, Quantum, Cinder Grizzly 4 April 2013 Nova, Glance, Swift, Horizon, Keystone, Quantum, Cinder Havana 17 Oct 2013 Nova, Glance, Swift, Horizon, Keystone, Neutron, Cinder, Heat, Ceilometer

  • Compare/Contrast with AWS (& other APIs)
  • Compare/contrast AWS & OpenStack Q: Who will win between GCE, AWS, and OpenStack? Which is better, ect... A: “Who will win between Century 21, Home Depot, and a lumber mill?” NOTE: API compatibility is a philosophy on its own...
  • OpenStack & AWS components OpenStack Amazon Web Services Horizon AWS Console Nova EC2 Keystone IAM Neutron Networking / Virtual Private Cloud Glance AMIs Cinder EBS Swift S3 Ceilometer Usage / Billing Heat CloudFormation Trove RDS
  • Rackspace mapping
  • OpenStack EC2 API ● https://wiki.openstack. org/wiki/Nova/APIFeatureComparison
  • OpenStack and GAE ● Project to provide GAE API compatability:
  • OpenStack and GAE ● Code: https://github.com/stackforge/gce- api
  • Developing on OpenStack
  • (Typical?) Enterprise approach ● GUI Driven ● Ticket-based ● Hand-crafted ● Reserved ● Lengthy provisioning ● Scale-up ● Proprietary ● Traditional dev
  • Cloud computing approach ● API driven ● Self-service ● Automated ● On-demand ● Scale-out ● Open source ● Agile, DevOps, etc...
  • Scale out vs scale up ● Scale up: make boxes bigger ● Scale out: more boxes
  • Elastic cloud patterns ● Small failure domains ● Loose coupling ● Circuit breaker pattern ● AWS EBS could be a crutch ● Shared nothing architecture
  • OpenStack Swift - Object Storage ● Not a file system & not block storage ● Highly available, durable, distributed, eventually consistent, unstructured storage accessed via a REST-ful http API! ● Scale-out: If possible, drop the shared file system, use object storage
  • How to try out OpenStack
  • How to try/use OpenStack ● DevStack - http://devstack.org ● TryStack - http://trystack.org ● Search in github... vagrant openstack ● Example public OpenStack based clouds in US: ○ RackSpace - trial: http://developer.rackspace.com/devtrial/ ○ HPCloud ○ Internap ● Example public OpenStack based clouds in Canada: ○ CloudA ○ ??? ● CANARIE - http://canarie.ca ○ Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research (DAIR)
  • ● Canada’s Advanced Research and Innovation Network ● Works with twelve provincial and territorial network partners (including Cybera) to form Canada’s advanced network alliance
  • DAIR - https://atir-dair.canarie.ca/ ● Provides entrepreneurs with free, high-performance cloud resources for product development, testing and demonstration ● DAIR is a made-in-Canada cloud; data stays in Canada ● DAIR is powered by OpenStack ● Gives entrepreneurs free self-serve access to 4 high- performance virtual servers (and more) ○ 2 geographic locations - Edmonton, AB & Sherbrooke, QC
