About: The “infrastructure as code” configuration management in Helion OpenStack 2.1 is done using Ansible.
This session will explore the step by step approach to deploy 4 popular use cases configuring advanced Neutron
Deploy a Load Balanced 2 tier infrastructure (Using Oracle and Tomcat) that leverages LBaaS v2. How to perform proactive autoscaling by code – and bypassing the LBaaS v2 lack of integration with Heat / Ceilometer.
FWaaS use case to block by code certain ports in our two tier infrastructure while allowing your end users to still reach the core services.
Configure a VPNaaS across two separate OpenStack clouds. In this use case our web services are running in one OpenStack cloud (could be a public cloud) while our database services are running safely on premise in a separate private cloud. VPNaaS will allow the comminication between Tomcat in our “public” cloud and Oracle in our “private” cloud. This is transparent to the end user.
Baremetal provisioning with Ansible playbooks: A quick demo to showcase the configuration management capabilities of Ansible when dealing with baremetal provisioning leveraging cobbler and IPMItools.
