Carrier-Grade Cloud Infrastructure (Aaron Smith, Pasi Vaananen, Red Hat): The move from vertically integrated hardware and software to distributed execution in a cloud complicates the delivery of highly available services. Vertically integrated systems enabled all system layers required to communicate and participate in the support of availability of the service to be under control of single system vendor. With NFV, the cloud philosophy of infrastructure and application decoupling requires new open interfaces to support the necessary flow of information between layers and clear separation of the fault and availability management responsibilities between the infrastructure and application SW subsystems. Even in the cloud environment, traditional availability concepts such as fast detection, correlation, and fault notification still apply. A fast, low-latency fault management platform will be presented that allows cloud-based services to achieve 5NINES of availability and service continuity. Performance measurements from a prototype of the system will be presented along with a demo of the operation of a service requiring 50 ms fault remediation.
