Technology, Trends, and Advances in Linux & Open Source. Join the SUSE Open Source Talks webinar series to discuss topics and advances in Linux and open source technologies. Hear from leading industry experts as they share their knowledge and insights on some of the hottest technologies and trends in the industry.
Lars Marowsky-Brée is a SUSE distinguished engineer and architect for storage and high-availability. His current responsibilities include distributed storage (Ceph) as well as the Open Source clustering suite. He is interested in the performance and dependability of distributed systems and data. Past contributions include the Linux Virtual Server project, heartbeat, multipath, RAID, drbd, and others. In his 15 years
at SUSE, he has served as a senior consultant, individual contributor, project manager and team lead of one of the SUSE Labs kernel teams.
Every cloud or cluster needs to be administered and xCAT is the open source solution to help you manage HPC clusters, RenderFarms, Grids, WebFarms, online gaming infrastructure, clouds, and data centers. Join Jarrod Johnson, a high performance and scale out computing architect, to learn what makes xCAT different from other management open source projects and how you can use it in the enterprise.
Linux Containers provide a simple and efficient way to run Linux guest machines by sharing the kernel with their host. And Docker makes it easy to tame these Linux containers, while providing DevOps a workflow to manage the containers' life cycle and collaborative functionality. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 evolves Linux Container management and introduces Docker. This session will outline the advantages of using Linux Containers and Docker as part of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12.
openATTIC is a web-based Open Source Storage management system for Linux. It supports the most popular NAS/SAN protocols like CIFS/NFS and iSCSI/Fibre Channel, including clustering and mirroring of data using DRBD®.
openATTIC development is sponsored by it-novum. In addition to managing "traditional" storage, the openATTIC project is currently collaborating with SUSE on adding management and monitoring functionality for the Ceph distributed storage system. By supporting both "traditional" storage and Ceph, openATTIC allows the user to scale and grow his storage infrastructure as needed, while still being able to use the same tool.
In this webinar, Lenz will give an overview about openATTIC's architecture and technology, highlighting the functionality and features currently available. It will also give an insight into the ongoing and future development plans and the community resources that support the project.
One of the most important capabilities for companies to have is the ability to quickly adapt. Teams, developing not only software, should be ready to follow the wind of changes in the market.
Yet companies are faced with these questions: is our infrastructure ready for change? What is the cost of making needed changes? How do we adapt in a new environment?
In this talk Artem with show DevOps techniques that can help companies get ready to meet these challenges. He will use real life examples like fast deployments, continuous integration/delivery/automation, and “dockerization” of applications, lean development, systems orchestration, and behavior-driven development to demonstrate how companies can quickly adapt to market changes.
Did you know that nearly all product documentation at SUSE is published under an open document license, such as the GNU Free Documentation License, or Creative Commons? And did you know that we use mainly open source tools during the processes for the creation of our guides, quick starts, best practices? If you are curious to hear more about these tools and processes, just join the talk, and discover how you can influence quality and output of the SUSE documentation work.
Ceph, an open source scale-out storage platform, is capable of exposing fault-tolerant block device images to remote Linux clients through the use of the RADOS Block Device (RBD) kernel
module, and librbd library. This talk will offer an introduction to Ceph RBD, and focus on how such devices can be utilized by non-Linux platforms via the iSCSI protocol. The talk will conclude with a demonstration video showing a VMware ESXi cluster connected to redundant iSCSI gateways.
There are numerous methods available when upgrading to SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 1. This talk will cover some of the tools you can use in both manual and semi-automated upgrades, like yast, zypper, SUSEConnect, snapper and others, that you will want to know to perform a successful upgrade. But just in case something goes wrong, this session will also focus on how to use snapper to rollback a failed SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 1 upgrade.
openQA is a new technology, first developed by the openSUSE project and now also used by SUSE for automatic software testing of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Products. This session will give an introduction to openQA's capabilities, discuss the benefits of its use in modern software development, and suggest ideas to attendees as how it could be used for testing their software, operating systems, or virtual machine images.
