Use Case: The Mission Critical Cloud
Schuberg Philis started its CloudStack adventure in 2011 and since 2012 it successfully runs production work loads. In this talk Remi Bergsma will walk you through the choices made, the challenges faced, the design over the years. He shows you how the CloudStack cloud was built. Finally Remi will give an overview of what currently runs on top of CloudStack: from online banks, asset management, government and retail to the platform operated by the biggest harbour of the world. In short: all Mission Critical. If CloudStack is good enough for Mission Critical work loads, it's probably also good enough for you :-)

Customizing CloudStack for Leaseweb
Using CloudStack for large scale, global, multi-tenant hosting provider. We'll be presenting some of the challenges we faced for large-scale deployments, tied up with distinct product portfolio and accounting systems. Some of the customizations included: Customer and Ops dashboard, new implementation for console, and storage migration. In this talk we dive a bit deeper into CloudStack storage and integration mechanisms, and share our learnings on how we did storage migration for all our cloud customers. Albeit this presentation is purely based on LeaseWeb's setup, our intention is sharing the knowledge acquired during these implementations and its effect on platform performance and customer experience.

Embracing Failure: Self-Healing, Decentralized Resource Management for Apache CloudStack
A followup to the CCC13 presentation "How to Run from a Zombie" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFaRl5hgsG0) which explained that the CloudStack architecture violates the CAP theorem by attempting to be simultaneously consistent and available. These conflicting goals cause the system to misallocate resources, orphan device configuration elements, and nondeterministic application of infrastructure configuration.

This presentation will introduce Hoke, a resource management library designed to address these issues by separating consistent automation control and availability-oriented orchestration operations. It provides a lock-free, consistent automation control plane using state-based replication with an orchestration tier. Finally, it distributes itself across the partitions of a CloudStack cluster to scale out workload and isolate the impact of infrastructure failures.

Enabling simultaneous shared access to guaranteed-performance volumes
CloudStack's storage infrastructure does not currently allow for multiple VMs to attach to the same data disk simultaneously.

Interoute, however, has a critical use case whereby there is a necessity to allow multiple VMs to perform such an action.

In this situation, we were constrained to using an existing version of CloudStack (4.5), so no code changes to the "core" software could be made.

We decided on an approach that leveraged CloudStack's extensive plug-in framework.

Using CloudStack's ability to support plug-ins, we developed three plug-ins to solve the problem:

1) A plug-in that extended CloudStack's API to support additional functionality.

2) A GUI plug-in for root admins to set up storage and VLANs.

3) A second GUI plug-in (typically used for standard users) to create volumes that can be directly accessed via the OSes running in the applicable VMs.

Leveraging External DCHP servers in CloudStack
CloudStack implements guest networks using Virtual Router to provide various services to guest vms in both isolated and shared networks. Some of the services like VPN, NAT, Firewall and Loadbalancing can be provided using external service providers like Juniper SRX, F5 and Netscalar instead of Virtual Router. However there was no way to implement DHCP,DNS service other than Virtual Router until Cloudstack 4.5 release. In ACS4.6 we are implementing a way to bypass Virtual Router by supporting DCHP and DNS services external to CS so as to avoid VR creation to save resources on hypervisor(Otherwise shared network creation with just dhcp,dns and userdata services requires VR creation on CS host). In the absence of VR these services (user data , password reset and ssh key reset functionalities) to guest vms can be implemented using config drive which is similar to open stack config drive.

Application of Reinforcement Learning (A Machine Learning Paradigm) in CloudStack
For resource allocation, currently CloudStack uses heuristic/threshold based algorithms which are error prone and may not fit best for all environments. In addition to this different kind of applications have different kind of resources (compute, storage etc.) requirements which is tricky and hard to allocate. With some initial learning provided, Reinforcement Learning based approaches will learn the best policies for system automatically. If there are some changes in environment than it will automatically detect changes and will try to modify policies which are more suited for changed environment.
Reinforcement Learning based techniques can also be utilised for VM consolidation in CloudStack. VM consolidation helps in operational savings of data center.

CloudStack Tuning
CloudStack performs well with default configuration for most of the deployment. But every system has a limit, beyond which the performance degrades. To get rid of these performance issues we have to tune the management server by tweaking some configurations. In this presentation, Sudhansu will discuss various cloudstack configurations and the load that will make management server exhausted. We will also discuss common issues and solutions.
Ex: A cloudstack Simulator based environment with 4K hosts, 4K accounts, 12K Vms, 8K router Vms, 2 management server nodes, 8G heap size started showing hosts in alert and disconnected state after 20 minutes of operation. The root cause was found to be less number of database connections.The configuration that determines the maximum active connection is 'db.cloud.maxActive'. To address this issue the we configured this to 1000 (default 250).

Junit-contracts A Contract Testing Tool
Junit-contracts A Contract Testing Tool (Claude Warren) – Contract testing provides a means for developers to provide tests to implementers of SPI and API frameworks to ensure that the expected functionality is implemented. Junit-contracts is a Junit runner and associated annotations that allows developers to develop test for correct implementation of an interface that are then reused by any implementation of the interface. The junit-contract tests suite does this automatically discovers the tests to be run and executes them. This presentation is an overview of the design principles behind the junit-contracts tool, how to develop tests that it can run, and how they can make development easier for project developers, QA teams and the system integrator while reducing support requests and problem tickets.

Automating CloudStack build and configuration with Ansible 2.0
Ansible has over the last couple of years become a strong contender in a market previously dominated by Chef and Puppet. The benefits are many - it's agentless, near plain English, configures systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks.
Ansible is also a brilliant tool for installing and configuring Apache CloudStack - taking away the vast majority of manual installation and configuration steps and streamlining rollout, configuration and operations. Ansible 2.0 (currently Beta) will also have a dedicate CloudStack module, streamlining configuration even further. This talk will give an overview of how the end user can utilise Ansible in CloudStack build and configuration, and also give an introduction to the new CloudStack module.

The old and the new world walking together: approaches to enable the OSPF protocol in CloudStack
OSPF is a routing protocol for Internet Protocol networks. It uses a link state routing algorithm and falls into the group of interior routing protocols, operating within a single autonomous system. Compared with RIP, OSPF can provide scalable network support and faster convergence times. OSPF is widely used in large networks such as ISP backbones and enterprise networks.
Considering that in large organizations where the end-to-end access is a requirement, the current VPC model brings more complexity to management and hands-on configuration beside the overhead involved in the NAT address translations processing.
This presentation will bring some possibles approaches to enable dynamic routing using the OSPF protocol for IPv4 and IPv6 and simplify the network administrator life safely and quickly.

Optional Secondary Storage in CloudStack
Currently Secondary storage in CloudStack plays key role in areas like snapshot, template management and also to some extent volume management too.But there exists well known performance limitations, especially in huge clouds with hosts spread across multiple pods, associated with secondary storage available across entire zone.Users often complain about slower snapshots, cold migration or deploy operations due to performance limitations of secondary storage which is not optional today per design without flexibility.This paper proposes an alternative design for the problem, by making secondary storage optional component in CloudStack deployment.Goal is to leverage existing primary storage in clusters across the zone to host snapshots, templates etc. and improve speed of all associated operations.Will present all limitations posed by this design change & solutions to address limitations.

Bring up production down VR
We know how to import the network piece of cloustack VR to the network. If the VR goes down for a moment then there is downtime for the cloud. Most of the cases VR is failed to start or go down in upgrading the cloustack to new version due to changes happened in cloudstack code changes or script/system.iso changes. In post upgrade if the VR start is failed then this creates tension to cloud operator.
