Open Build Server and RPM Packaging - The Package Factory

The Open Build Server is a cross-distro, multi-architecture platform for building packages from source code into native package formats for a wide number of Linux Distributions. From a single source tarball or source repository like git, you can create rpm and deb packages for all major Linux distributions on all supported hardware architectures. This presentation will first outline the major features and explain how various distros are supported. The latter part of the presentation will show a live demo of creating a package and showing the various build steps and QA checks integrated into the system. The latter part of the demo will show the gpg signing, publishing and automatic repository creation - allowing end users to consume packages using the default package management tools for their distro. The presenter has been using OBS since 2006.

  • Advanced Systems Management for Pets using Machinery Recorded: Nov 2 2016 38 mins
    Andreas Jaeger, Thomas Gottlicher
    If you're a system administrator responsible for a data center that is not fully automated, you have many individual workloads (called "pets") that you need to handle.

    Machinery is a systems management toolkit for Linux. It supports configuration discovery, system validation, and service migration. We will show how this tool can help you as a system administrator with your daily tasks for both "pets" and "cattle" and like to discuss future plans.

  • The Evolution of Linux Containers and Docker Recorded: Aug 3 2016 81 mins
    Flavio Castelli and Michal Svec
    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: Ceph and Storage management on SUSE Linux Recorded: Jul 6 2016 61 mins
    Lenz Grimmer
    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.
  • How DevOps can boost productivity Recorded: Jun 1 2016 53 mins
    Artem Chernikov DevOps Engineer & Scrum Master at SUSE
    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.

  • Even Today, Most Hardware Requires System Certification Recorded: Nov 4 2015 51 mins
    Drew Jackman
    When a hardware platform is certified, the hardware and the Linux OS are validated for compatibility in key areas where the hardware and OS interact or “touch” one another. Some of these touch area’s include: system firmware, boot, storage, network, crash capture, power management and new processor features. In this presentation we will dive into some of these areas, discuss why certification is crucial today and is actually becoming more critical every year.
