  • Enabling a Software Life Cycle for IoT Devices: From CPE to Enterprise Gateways Enabling a Software Life Cycle for IoT Devices: From CPE to Enterprise Gateways Manik Taneja Product Manager, Ubuntu Core Recorded: Nov 1 2016 58 mins
    Most embedded devices today never see a software update once shipped from the factory. Even if a software update is available, it's still very cumbersome to apply. More often than not, the update process is riddled with artifacts relying entirely on the end consumer. Given the complexities of keeping/maintaining the device, it's no surprise that adding to it capabilities with new software is challenging.
    In this session, we are going to introduce novel ways to manage a device life cycle. This new paradigm of software design enables transactional updates, application isolation and security as fundamental building blocks.

  • Don’t wait, upgrade to OpenStack Mitaka now Don’t wait, upgrade to OpenStack Mitaka now Mark Baker, Canonical's OpenStack Product Manager Recorded: May 10 2016 49 mins
    Imagine if Google or Amazon went a year or two without updating their cloud or adding new features. OpenStack private clouds must interoperate and compete with public clouds at an economic and technological capabilities level. That means updating to the latest version of OpenStack as smoothly and quickly as possible. Fortunately, Ubuntu OpenStack is designed with exactly that in mind.

    In this “don’t wait!” update, we review the key new features in OpenStack Mitaka. We’ll discuss why they’re important and what they do for your OpenStack cloud; updates like Live Migration, rolling upgrades, and Neutron role-based QoS, to name a few. We also talk about some of the tools that have helped make Ubuntu the platform for the vast majority of OpenStack installations.

    *Key takeaways*
    - The latest OpenStack has the stability improvements of all previous versions, there’s no need to wait to upgrade
    - OpenStack Mitaka has scalability, resiliency and manageability improvements throughout all the core projects
    - Ubuntu OpenStack and Canonical’s tools reduce time to initial deployment
    - Upgrading to OpenStack Mitaka is a standardized process if you’re using MaaS and Juju
    - Core features of Ubuntu have been updated or added to better support OpenStack Mitaka clouds, like LXD and ZFS

    Come hear Mark Baker, Canonical’s OpenStack product and strategy lead, explain what’s new in OpenStack Mitaka, why those features are important, and how Canonical is delivering tools to make them easy to consume, and easily upgradeable. A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Canonical found that ease of expansion and upgradeability is the most important must-have for a cloud platform. Ubuntu OpenStack ensures you never get left behind the cloud curve.
  • Critical Data for BootStack Clouds Critical Data for BootStack Clouds John Meadows, VP of Business Development for Talligent and Arturo Suarez, Product Strategy for Canonical Recorded: Mar 22 2016 44 mins
    Do you have or want to have a modern, agile, perhaps self-service, cloud infrastructure?
    Are you struggling with or considering how many disparate workloads are deployed?
    How will you gain useful insight into who's using which resources, and how do you appropriately charge users, departments, the customers of IT, for the resources they consume?

    Even in a flat or no charge back model, the ability to analyse and, more importantly, predict consumption, is vital to managing and growing any sort of modern IT infrastructure.

    With the rapid implementation and usage growth of modern clouds, it is vital that proper environmental analytics are gathered. Join Canonical and Talligent to learn how to measure and analyse business-critical consumption and cost data from a single to multi or hybrid cloud infrastructure. We'll discuss cloud computing in the context of BootStack, a managed OpenStack offering based on Ubuntu. Talligent's OpenBook software demonstrates how and why to perform cloud measurement, billing and potentially charge back.

    Speakers:
    John Meadows, VP of Business Development for Talligent, has an engineering background. He has worked on cost model development for software, provided direct input on virtualisation management systems for both software and hardware, and understands the importance of the intersection of operations, consulting, competitive analysis, and market alignment.

    Arturo Suarez, Product Strategy for Canonical, has a background as a business analyst and IT director. He was a founding member of Stackops, an IaaS solution based on OpenStack. Arturo has experience building platforms for growing companies that need modern cloud and agile infrastructure and understands the balance between DIY and leveraging hosted solutions.
