  • Q&T SIG Talk Series Ep. 21: Blockchain Testing Recorded: Aug 14 2018 27 mins
    Zak Cole
    Blockchain Testing

    The popularity of blockchain technology is rapidly expanding as both the public and enterprise sector begins to evaluate its reliability and validity. As the blockchain community attempts to address essential shortcomings concerning performance and scalability, a lack of commercially available, professional testing tools acts as a bottleneck preventing the rapid development of viable solutions. The Whiteblock platform provides an easy-to-use and fully configurable testing environment for blockchain systems, protocols, and decentralized applications. This presentation will present the testing methodology developed using this platform as well as summarize the results of testing initiatives conducted within the Whiteblock lab.

  • IT Ops: SIG Talk Series - OpenStack Cloud & SUSE Integration [Complete Edition] Recorded: Aug 6 2018 46 mins
    Dr. Kenneth Tan
    This Vivit SIG Talk session will feature a thought leader who will share his vast knowledge and experience with OpenStack Cloud. Join us to hear a customer story on how a full OpenStack solution increased productivity and its implementation from start to finish.

    Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Tan
    How to build an OpenStack cloud in Academic sector: University of Edinburgh: University of Edinburgh: The popularity of private cloud adoption even in the academic sector is rapidly rising. Today, OpenStack in academia is not just a subject we discussed at summits or conferences anymore. But how can you successfully adopt OpenStack when even log management and monitoring seems to be piecemeal for operators? It is clear that full OpenStack solution would be beneficial for efficient, automated, and cost effective cloud computing solutions, without requiring large OpenStack operations teams. Not all operators have the luxury of having teams dedicated to operate OpenStack.

    During the presentation we will talk about how University of Edinburgh is more productive than ever with a full OpenStack solutions - Deploy, Operate, Upgrade, about how we put into production in 8 weeks the research services department of one of the UK’s largest academic private cloud system, and what is still missing for OpenStack to make the adoption of cloud computing more flexible and self-served.

    Surviving OMW to OMi Migration

    The customer with a well-developed OMW-based monitoring solution was faced with a challenge to migrate to OMi10 due to OMW obsolescence.

    - Migration of event sources (OM agents, SNMP Trap sources, NNMi, SiteScope)
    - Migration of Service models with complex propagation/calculation rules
    - Migration of customized Incident ticketing integration (Service Manager)
    - Migration of custom applications (event archive, Service availability web portal, downtime management)
    - Minimum downtime during migration

    In this presentation, attendees will learn how these challenges were addressed and ultimately overcome.
