Unifying Events and Logs in the Cloud - Eduardo Silva, Treasure Data
Log data provides critical insights into software systems. However, in the age of ubiquitous computing, unifying logs from hundreds of data sources with different data formats presents a big challenge. Fluentd is an open source data collector that solves this problem by providing a unified logging layer with pluggable and reliable architecture.

In this presentation, I will talk about different use cases including mobile backend systems for logging and automotive sensor data collection and discuss how we can collect data from these sources in a maintainable, scalable manner, focusing on cloud-based backend systems.

Introduction of a New OpenStack REST API: Why We Need to Use Nova v2.1 API - Ken'ichi Ohmichi, NEC
OpenStack projects provide their services via REST APIs. All clients operate OpenStack services via REST APIs. Cloud service providers become to provide REST APIs to external world, and cloud users become to use these APIs directly on their own applications to use the best cloud service at the time. So the world is moving to interoperability.

One of OpenStack core projects Nova also provides many services via its REST APIs. However, current Nova API (v2) contains problems like lack of input validation, inconsistent interfaces and difficult to add a new API implementation, etc. To solve these problems, we have developed a new REST API called "v2.1" in Juno and Kilo development cycles. By using v2.1 API in many cloud services, we will be able to get safer services and interoperability will become easier.

In this session, you will know the outline of Nova v2.1 API, its merits.

Are today's FOSS Security Practices Robust Enough in the Cloud Era - Lars Kurth, Citrix
Recent vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, Shellshock and Venom have brought the security practices and track record of open-source projects into the spotlight. A project’s response to security issues has a major impact on how much risk end users are exposed to and how the project is perceived in the technology industry.

We will compare the security practices of key projects such as Linux, Docker, Xen Project, OpenStack and others. We will explore the trade-offs of different security practices, such as community trust, competing stakeholder interests, fairness and media coverage of vulnerabilities. Finally, we will explore the evolution of the Xen Project’s security process over the past 3 years as a case study. We will illustrate the trade-offs, pain points and unexpected issues we have experienced, to help other projects understand the pit-falls in designing robust security processes.

A Containers State of Mind, Chris Van Tuin, Red Hat
The dominant problem in Enterprise IT today is the friction between the two sides of the house. On one side, there is the line of business that’s all about differentiating in the market in the form of better applications, better services to their customers, and being ahead of their competitors.

In the eyes of many inside the organization, containers really come to the rescue. Containers can drive a revolutionary change into how these two sides of an IT organization work together.

In this presentation, you’ll learn about
• The acceleration of Application Delivery with containers
• What are Linux containers?
• The benefits of Linux containers
• The misconceptions of containers
• A walk thru overview of Docker and Kubernetes

Optimal Utilization of KVM & OpenStack Builds Leading IaaS - A Case Study by the Book - Andreas Månsson, op5; Daniel Gustafsson, City Networking Hosting AB
OpenStack has drivers for most major hypervisors, but KVM plays a special role in OpenStack for a number of good reasons. In this presentation Andreas Månsson, op5 and co-writer (Özgür Bale, City Network) will show that when you combine KVM, OpenStack and add one of the main management products in the KVM ecosystem that provides monitoring to the mix, you have a leading IaaS cloud that goes beyond the traditional virtualization market. They will take you on a great tour that details how City Cloud, an IaaS from City Network, use KVM, OpenStack and the IT monitoring software op5 Monitor as key components to deliver one of the most advanced cloud computing services and answer the question: Will KVM play one of the key roles in the next-generation applications that are run on the new cloud infrastructure such as OpenStack?

Introduction to OpenStack - Rich Bowen, Red Hat
You've heard about OpenStack for several years now, and you know it has something to do with Cloud, but what is it, and how does it fit together? In this talk, Rich, the OpenStack Community Liaison at Red Hat, will walk you through what OpenStack is, as a project, as a Foundation, and as a community of organizations. We'll talk about the various subprojects that make up the stack, and how they talk to one another. We'll cover the foundation and the various companies that are part of the ecosystem. And we'll talk some about how you can get involved in the project.

Ansible is Sensible - OpenStack Done the Easy Way - Igor Ljubuncic, Rackspace Ltd.
"To use OpenStack, one must be able to use OpenStack." --Igor Ljubuncic.

If you want to deploy OpenStack in your organization, you may face significant operational challenges. As a technology, OpenStack is infrastructure-oriented, being fairly complex to deploy and use. There is a steep learning curve involved, even for people with experience in both virtualization and Linux. This can be a major obstacle in getting OpenStack used as an enabler for businesses.

It can be, but it does not have to be. This presentation elaborates on the use of the Ansible configuration management platform to help facilitate and simplify the deployment of the Rackspace-supported OpenStack infrastructure, from the perspective of a new user. It also elaborates on the problems and pitfalls of the solution, and how to avoid them as you grow your business.
