How to Fail Fast and Rise Again - A Case Study on Transforming to Cloud Native - Ken Owens, MasterCard
DevNet is Cisco’s developer program through which external developers and partners interface, experiment and innovate using Cisco technologies, products and APIs. DevNet offers multiple services to developers. As DevNet continued to grow, there was a need to independently scale up services to accommodate the growing pool of DevNet developers and rapidly add more services to keep developers engaged and satisfied. Meeting these requirements in an architecture made of multiple monolithic services is expensive and slow, so we knew it was time to embark on our journey to transform our offering into microservices. This presentation will detail the difficult failures our transformation had to overcome in order to move from a traditional web application to a platform for service creation, training, and development. Through the sharing of successful patterns and best practices, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from our mistakes, to help them on their own Cloud Transformation journey.

Live Patching, Virtual Machine Introspection and Vulnerability Management: A Primer and Practical Guide - Lars Kurth, Citrix
The talk covers several technologies and best practices to managing Security Vulnerabilities, which are told as interconnected stories.

We will cover how the largest clouds in production came together through the Xen Project to develop an industry leading open source security process to manage software vulnerabilities effectively, how those vendors collaborated to stop cloud reboots through Live Patching and how security and CPU vendors collaborated to protect against 0-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats using hardware assisted virtual machine introspection. Finally, we will also provide information how you can use tools such as CVE Details to assess how secure an open source technology is relative to another, such that you don't have to rely solely on security stories from the technology press.

The talk will cover how these technologies work, the limitations and challenges which still remain and how they are used in practice using examples of Xen Project based products and installations. We will also cover how these technologies impact software vulnerability management processes and system administrators.

By Every Need Necessary: A Cloud Foundry Roadmap Update - Chip Childers, Cloud Foundry Foundation
Open source projects are unique in that they are constantly mutating -- based on user need, core committers and councils dedicated to overseeing their evolution. While some open source projects can grow haphazardly, like a house with no blueprint, Cloud Foundry was designed and evolved in order to ensure balance between competing interests, ingrained processes (like “pairing”) that improve quality and developer satisfaction, and vital collaboration among organizations. The community and culture within Cloud Foundry is comprised of practical, well-documented processes and strong developers, moves at an ultra high velocity and holds an open mind for all new projects. In this talk, Cloud Foundry Foundation CTO Chip Childers will take you through the current and future efforts of the project teams, including Runtime PMC, CAPI, Diego, Garden, BOSH and the Open Service Broker API. He will map out the evolution of these projects, their councils and the implications of these updates for Cloud Foundry users.

It's Not About Your Features: Navigating Open Source Business Models in the Cloud Era - Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal Software
Building an open source-based software business is hard these days. Some say it's impossible. Entrepreneurs face a war on two fronts: free and cloud-provider services. Is there room in the market to carve out a business based on open source?

In an effort to differentiate, many entrepreneurs focus on building more and more capability features. They tick functionality boxes to extend into more market categories and grow the TAM, but it’s a red herring. They risk losing sight of what customers actually need - and will pay for - namely convenience.

In this talk, former investment analyst, Dormain Drewitz, will provide some shortcuts identifying product-market fit. She will explain the implications and opportunities of cloud-neutral platforms on OSS packaging. Finally, she will give some examples of open source-based companies that are succeeding with these strategies.

Cognitive Workloads on the Cloud: What Clouds Need To Do - Khoa Huynh, Larry Brown & Brian Wan, IBM
With the emergence of new powerful hardware accelerators, such as Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) and Programmable Field Gate Arrays (FPGAs), more and more artificial intelligence (AI) has appeared in our daily lives, from Siri, Alexa, language translation, image recognition, to self-driving cars. The cognitive era has truly begun. In this presentation, we will look at the key characteristics of cognitive workloads, including the deep-learning workloads that employ neural networks to solve complex AI problems. Popular software stacks and frameworks supporting these workloads, such as TensorFlow and Caffe, will be discussed. We will then present some performance data to show how well typical cognitive workloads, such as neural network model training, run on GPUs and FPGAs that are available on public clouds, such as IBM SoftLayer, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and others. Finally, we provide some recommendations on what public clouds should provide, in terms of hardware and software images, to optimize for cognitive workloads.

From Zero to Serverless in 60 Seconds, Anywhere - Alex Ellis, ADP
The “serverless” architectural pattern (which has recently been made popular by AWS Lambda or IBM OpenWhisk) lets us focus on building discrete, reusable chunks of code. This pattern is particularly suited to lightweight, event-driven interactions between third-party services.

Functions-as-a-Service (OpenFaaS) is an open-source framework that allows you to package any code as a serverless function, enabling you to consume a range of web events with minimal boilerplate coding. It leverages Prometheus metrics for auto-scaling; and since it relies on Docker’s API and native orchestration, it can be deployed on any platform (private or public cloud, or even on prem’) in minutes.

In this talk, we will give an overview of the serverless pattern including use-cases; then introduce the OpenFaaS framework and show it in action. There will be live demos featuring integrations with Amazon Alexa voice assistant, Twitter, and GitHub.

Memory Bandwidth as a Service in the Context of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) - Vikas Shivappa, Intel
With expanding usage of Iaas (infrastructure as a service), it may be useful to add memory bandwidth(b/w) as a service. Memory b/w monitoring(MBM) and allocation(MBA) allow measuring and control of per process mem b/w which helps achieve fairness and in guaranteeing key Quality of service(QOS) constraints in many streaming or big data use cases. Vikas will review enterprise benchmark data that focus on such
contention issues, which until recently Linux kernel has tolerated. The MBM and MBA support in Linux kernel based on perf and resctrl interface, provides a lightweight, powerful tool which works towards resolving these contention issues in a systamatic and measurable manner.

OpenTracing: One Instrumentation for Metrics, Logs and Distributed Tracing - Juraci Paixão Kröhling, Red Hat & Yuri Shkuro, Uber

Understanding how your microservices based application is executing in a highly distributed and elastic cloud environment can be complicated. CNCF OpenTracing is a new standard to help provide observability within such an environment. With the help from Jaeger, an OpenTracing compatible distributed tracing system, we will show how instrumenting an application using the OpenTracing API can provide not only tracing information, showing the path of execution through a set of cooperating services, but also application metrics and contextualised logging information, to help diagnose problems in highly distributed applications.

BoF: Automating Vulnerability Scanning with Vuls - Kota Kanbe, Future Architect, Inc. & Teppei Fukuda, Future Architect, Inc.
Vulnerability lifecycle management without automation is a huge burden. You have to constantly watch out for any new vulnerabilities and keep a manual inventory of installed software to determine which devices are affected by new vulnerabilities.

To overcome these challenges, Kota Kanbe wrote an open source vulnerability scanner called Vuls [ https://github.com/future-architect/vuls ].

Vuls tells you which servers and software are related to the newly disclosed vulnerabilities. Vuls can scan more accurately than other open source scanners using multiple detection methods including changelog, Package Manager, NVD, and OVAL, and it is possible to scan many servers at high speed by using the parallel processing in Go language.

In this session, Kota and Teppei will explain Vuls and how to use it in order to automate vulnerability lifecycle management.

OpenStack vs. Ganeti - Lance Albertson, OSU Open Source Lab
OpenStack has gained a lot of prominence in the cloud ecosystem, but it can be a difficult platform to setup and maintain. Ganeti is a lesser known FOSS virtualization platform created by Google that primarily provides a simple to use compute service. Both of these platforms have their strengths and weaknesses.

At the OSU Open Source Lab, we have been long time users and promoters of Ganeti since 2009. It’s enabled the lab to better serve its FOSS hosting activities in a stable yet easy to use manner. Over the past year we have been also building and using OpenStack clusters to fill other computing needs that Ganeti doesn’t fill very well.

Ganeti is software developed at Google which can be used to manage physical hardware in order to host virtualization workloads. Used worldwide and highly customizable, Ganeti architecture makes it easy to install, maintain, extend and use. Compared to other platforms, Ganeti is a great fit for medium to small organizations that need a simple virtualization cluster will few to no cloud features.

This session will cover the Ganeti platform, how it’s being used, how the project and community is evolving and how to deploy it into your infrastructure.

Databases in the Hosted Cloud - Colin Charles, Percona
Today you can use hosted MySQL/MariaDB/Percona Server/PostgreSQL in several "cloud providers" in what is considered using it as a service, a database as a service (DBaaS). Learn the differences, the access methods, and the level of control you have for the various public cloud offerings:
- Amazon RDS including Aurora
- Google Cloud SQL
- Rackspace OpenStack DBaaS
- Oracle Cloud's MySQL Service

The administration tools and ideologies behind it are completely different, and you are in a "locked-down" environment. Some considerations include:
* Different backup strategies
* Planning for multiple data centres for availability
* Where do you host your application?
* How do you get the most performance out of the solution?
* What does this all cost?
* Monitoring

Growth topics include:
* How do you move from one DBaaS to another?
* How do you move all this from DBaaS to your own hosted platform?

Moving Applications from Cloud-to-Cloud - Susan Wu, Midokura
Cloud computing provides an array of hosting and service options to fit your overall company strategy. Sometimes a public cloud is your best option and other times your data requirements demand a private cloud. As needs converge, a hybrid solution continues to gain popularity. Developers must consider if their applications might be run on either or both.

In this session, drawing from her operational experience with Rackspace Cloud, on-premise OpenStack and AWS, Susan will discuss the considerations for moving applications from legacy environments to cloud. She will also the discuss the best practices for moving applications from cloud to cloud, how to decouple applications from managed services and map them to the equivalent services in the new cloud.

Build Cloud Infrastructure with Cheap ARM Boards - Jim Huang, South Star Xelerator & Yu-Chiang Huang, National Chiao Tung University
The DozenCloud Project, based on OpenStack, proposes a reasonably efficient model to construct low power virtual private cloud computing systems based on the customization of open source software technologies and cost-efficient ARM boards, such as Raspberry Pi. In this talk, we will discuss the customization of management software stack for heterogeneous high-density computing, built with low-power ARM devices, with platform specific optimizations in OpenStack. The measurement of performance and power efficiency of all current low-end and micro server offerings is proved to be a bit complex since it is indeed targeted at more demanding scale-out software were called "scale-out servers". DozenCloud has been developing these simplified blade server chassis that offer density, low power, and lower cost, in the form of open source.

SMACK Stack and Beyond - Building Fast Data Pipelines - Jörg Schad & Matt Jarvis, Mesosphere
Our world seems to move faster and faster and so are our requirements for data analytics. For many use cases such as fraud detection or reacting on sensor data the response times of traditional batch processing are simply to slow. In order to be able to react to such events close to real-time, we need to beyond the classical batch processing and utilize stream processing systems such as Apache Spark Streaming, Apache Flink, or Apache Storm.
But these systems are not sufficient by itself. For an efficient and fault-tolerant setup we also need to a message queue and storage system. One common example for such fast data pipelines is the SMACK stack which stands for
- Spark (Streaming) - the stream processing system
- Mesos - the cluster orchestrator
- Akka - the system for providing custom actors for reacting upon the analyses
- Cassandra - storage system
- Kafka - message queue

Setting up such pipeline in a scalable, efficient and fault-tolerant manner is not trivial.
This talk will first discuss several alternatives for the various parts in the stack, e.g., what are the tradeoffs between Spark Streaming and Apache Flink; when should I use ArangoDB or Apache Cassandra.
We will then discuss the challenges and best practices for setting up such pipelines in order.
The talk will finish with a demo of a fast data pipelines with Apache Flink, ArangoDB, and Apache Kafka deployed on DC/OS.

Death of the ESB: 10 Pitfalls in the Transition to Cloud-Native Integration - Rahul Kamdar, TIBCO Software Inc.
As we move from an ESB world to a microservices API focused world, the need for integration does not go away, if fact it is arguably far more important today than ever. Based on customer engagements, this session discusses the 10 pitfalls one has to avoid when plotting the transition from an ESB-centric integration architecture to a distributed API & microservices architecture in Cloud Foundry.

Examples of pitfalls such as
SOAPful APIs Server-side conversations
Roll your own key management
Coupling of apps & API lifecycle
Let’s migrate everything as-is

Serverless Data Pipelines with OpenWhisk - Jowanza Joseph, One Click Retail
Functions as a service (FaaS) provide operational advantages over traditional architectures. Internet of Things, Chatbots and other programmatic platforms have benefitted from being implemented in this way. Implementing and deploying FaaS often comes with vendor lock in with platforms like Amazon Lambda and Azure Functions. OpenWhisk provides an open source alternative to implementing and deploying FaaS architectures. In this talk I cover the advantages of developing and deploying data pipelines in this fashion. While presenting these intricacies, I will walk the audience through creating a data pipeline with OpenWhisk.
