Provisioning the Cloud within XLcloud, OW2Con'13, Nov. 2013, Paris

Xlcloud Presentation by Sylvain Bauza, Bull.
Abstract: XLcloud is a three-year long collaborative project funded by the French FSN (Fonds national pour la Société Numérique) programme, call Cloud n° 1, that was initially submitted under the name "Magellan". XLcloud strives to establish the demonstration of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) platform based on OpenStack that is designed to run a representative set of compute intensive workloads including more specifically interactive games, interactive simulations and 3D graphic applications. In this context, provisioning a full stack from baremetal nodes to running PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) implies many challenges that XLCloud team has to deal with day-to-day. The goal of this talk is to discuss about the current state-of-art on how to deploy and configure Openstack, how these tools can help XLCloud to match its needs and the current status of the project by itself.

  3. 3. Slide 3/14 Mission statement of XLcloud The XLcloud project strives to establish the demonstration of a High Performance Cloud Computing (HPCC) platform based on OpenStack that is designed to run a representative set of compute intensive workloads including more specifically interactive games, interactive simulations and 3D graphic applications.
  4. 4. Slide 4/14 Common HPCC issues Issues ● Virtualization overhead (5% to 30%) especially for I/O ● Large data volume transfers ● Low latency / high bandwidth networks ● Lack of mature management, orchestration and monitoring features ● Security concerns (data privacy, authorization) Solutions ● HVM, LXC, bare-metal instances ● GPU support for compute and graphics ● High performance full-bisection network with traffic control ● GUI & REST API (XMS) to manage and monitor full software stacks ● Strong and standard AuthN / AuthZ protocols ● Instances can be allocated on reserved, dedicated and homogeneous HW with CPU affinity
  5. 5. Slide 5/14 XLcloud interactions with OpenStack Designed for DevOps minded users to create and manage the life-cycle of multi-tier middleware stacks Vertically integrated with the OpenStack CMS and physical infra Advanced Identity & Access Management integration

  11. 11. Slide 11/14 Provisioning the stack Heat : should I present ? Userdata usage with cfn-tools Chef recipes Chef-solo only Synchronization/communication thanks to MCollective Climate : A resource reservation service (0.1 by December) Implements lease management Plans to implement both virtual and physical resources (Vms, stacks, compute hosts...) TBD : Marconi for notifications, HOT software templates ?

  13. 13. Slide 13/14 How to contribute to OpenStack ? https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/How_To_Contribute Very dynamic community with many skilled and creative people Mailing lists and IRC channels are really important to learn, build relationships and credibility Don't wait for features to land, be proactive and show that you care Test new features Report bugs Write documentation Fix bugs
