BOV117261 - Traditional Storage, the Way of the Past & Software-Defined Storage, the Way of the Future In this talk, you will get an in-depth look at traditional storage—including costs, scalability, manageability, and maintenance costs—and how it compares to software defined storage based on these parameters. We’ll refer to case studies and real-world examples of organizations that have implemented software defined storage and the results they achieved in terms of strategic and business benefits. This will be a strong but realistic business overview of why software defined storage should be part of your IT planning, including how to use this building block for internal or external clouds and a detailed cost analysis linked to real-world "street price" costs. 1 Hour Business Overview Scott Warner

BOV119040 - Overview: SUSE Enterprise Storage Management with DeepSea and openATTIC Distributed storage solutions such as Ceph pose unique challenges in enterprise environments. Because of its great flexibility and functionality, Ceph is sometimes perceived as complex—especially in larger environments. That's why SUSE develops the open source projects DeepSea and openATTIC. DeepSea is a Salt-based framework that allows you to control the deployment, configuration, and lifecycle management of your SUSE Enterprise Storage cluster. Compared to existing tools like ceph-deploy (which is already deprecated), many previously manual steps are automated and high-level tasks can be orchestrated—all of which reduce your daily workload. To make DeepSea even easier and more accessible, we added support for it in openATTIC as a web frontend to manage and monitor a Ceph cluster by using a Graphical User Interface (GUI). If you've never heard about Salt, Ceph and Object Store, and you're also interested in how to operate Ceph from the CLI and GUI on a high-level basis, then this is the right talk for you. 1 Hour Business Overview Lenz Grimmer

BOV122255 - SUSE CaaS Platform or SUSE OpenStack Cloud: Which Platform Is Right for Your Business? "Many of you are looking to start consuming containers or want to consume them in a more enterprise- friendly way. However, the marketplace can be a perplexing minefield of products. CaaS, IaaS, EverythingaaS: the choices are endless and can be understandably confusing for business leaders and entrepreneurs worldwide. SUSE has two products that can help you empower DevOps and containers: OpenStack Cloud and Containers as a Service Platform. In this session designed for business leaders, managers and decision makers, we will walk you through the characteristics of these products and demystify the technical jargon. We will also review use cases for each and discuss the benefits for your business. In addition, we will provide you with user and developer stories and other insights we have gained along the way. All of this will equip you with tools and knowledge to help you decide which platform should empower your container infrastructure as we enter the new containerized world together." 1 Hour Business Overview Pieter Jenniskens

BOV124370 - Why Reinvent the Wheel? Sharing Expertise, Experience and Knowledge via the SUSE Best Practices "For many enterprises, a lot of hidden IT experience exists in the ecosystem. This is also the case for SUSE—no matter which product or technology you are looking at. For every product or solution, there are subject matter experts that have profound know-how and skills. But this kind of information is usually not publicly available. The purpose of the SUSE Best Practices is to change this situation by making existing knowledge and experience available to a broader audience. This new type of documentation (in contrast to the SUSE product documentation, which mainly guides you through product installation and usage) delivers a series of topic-driven guides and provides installation and implementation ""experiences."" Best of all, YOU can contribute and you can re-use it! We share all product documentation under an open document license, such as the GNU Free Documentation License. And we primarily use open source tools to create our guides, quick starts, and of course our SUSE Best Practices. If you are open to sharing your experience and knowledge in the true spirit of ""Open Source""; curious to learn more about the tools and processes used to create our documentation; or eager to discover how you can influence the output of the SUSE documentation, come and join the talk!" 1 Hour Business Overview Meike Chabowski
BOV124429 - Jeopardy-like Game: What's That Distribution? (Or: My Last Talk) "I assume this will be the last talk I ever give, because after this, every single distribution's community will be out to kill me. Ladies and Gentlemen, bring your hatchets! Why? Well, I have collected quotes, sentences and assumptions that speak for themselves—from and about distributions and community leaders. Come prepared to demonstrate your knowledge of the industry by answering questions such as “Who is the ‘Microsoft’ of open source?"" “Who thinks they own open source?” “Who was bought twice, and neither of the buyers exist anymore?” “Who has hired a Gentoo guy as head of package management?” “Who is still compiling Libre Office and, therefore, can't open a document?” “What's that distribution with three, four, five names that are constantly changing?” Add your own. This ""Lightning talk"" is open source and a call for your ideas and discussion." 1 Hour Business Overview Meike Chabowski
Markus Feilner
BOV126596 - SUSE OpenStack Cloud Monitoring via Monasca "In contrast to other monitoring tools, Monasca has a scalable architecture, making it the tool of choice in cloud environments. With its comprehensive feature range, providing constant improvement and further development, Monasca is the optimal Monitoring-as-a-Service solution for you as a data center operator and cloud customer. The integration of the OpenStack Event Queue in Monasca offers additional monitoring possibilities for system operators and end users, and represents an important extension of cloud management. In this talk, you will see a live demo focused on the integration of the new ""OpenStack Event Queue Features"" in Monasca.

Whether you are deploying new instances in the cloud, creating container images, or hosting your own instances, you can ensure they comply with security requirements. Your portfolio can also get the configurations YOU desire it to have—throughout its lifecycle. And you can do this for SLES and for RH-based systems with one tool: SUSE Manager. We will present compelling reasons and a clearly focused live demo to show how you can have the best-looking Linux portfolio across your enterprise and in the cloud with SUSE Manager." 1 Hour Business Overview Don Vosburg
Brandon Austin
BOV127002 - Introduction to Blockchain "Blockchain. If you haven’t heard of this technology, you may wonder: ""A block of chains? A chain of blocks? How is this relevant to me?” If who have heard of it, you may think: ""What's SUSE's relationship to this topic?"" or ""Is SUSE into the Digital Currency business now?"" (We aren’t.) In any case, welcome to the world of blockchain, the world of distributed databases and cryptographically secured transactions. Following a short introduction into the Theory and Technology, we will look in to business-relevant Use Cases. And because blockchains are primarily based on open source software and SUSE is the Open, open source vendor, we will look into implementations by the open source community and SUSE partners." 1 Hour Business Overview Matthias Eckermann
Reinier van der Drift
BOV127018 - Understanding Platform-as-a-Service through the Lens of the Cloud Foundry Architecture "What is Platform as a Service (PaaS)? How does it differ from IaaS or CaaS? How can you make use of PaaS? Why should you care? In this talk, we will present the design and architecture of SUSE's Cloud Foundry-based Platform as a Service. Using the Cloud Foundry architecture as a reference, we will explore what sets a PaaS apart from other platform layers and discuss how its opinionated design impacts application architecture and ease of use. This talk will be high-level technical in nature, discussing system and application architecture. It will be accessible to those in the developer, sysadmin or even line-of-business areas, covering how Cloud Foundry tries to bridge the gaps in providing a manageable, secure system that is also easy for developers to use in a self-service manner." 1 Hour Business Overview Troy Topnik
Jeff Hobbs
BOV127171 - Continuous Delivery of Micro Applications with Jenkins, Docker and Kubernetes at Apollo-Optik "Business processes in large corporations often require agile data management in all business units, in order to optimize the data flow. Interfaces need to be defined and implemented, they have to be used in data transfer and exchange, and they need to be controlled across the entire landscape. The applications covered in this talk were developed as micro applications. They were containerized using Docker and deployed in a SUSE Linux Enterprise 12-based Kubernetes platform. The result? The deployment was more flexible, peak loads were kept under control, and hardware resources were optimized. Kubernetes plays an important role in maintaining the landscape's agility and scalability. This talk introduces a Jenkins-driven, continuous integration framework implemented by B1 Systems GmbH and Apollo-Optik Holding GmbH & Co. KG. We will outline a typical micro application's lifecycle at Apollo-Optik—from the first development steps, through testing and deployment, to the integration into the corporation's internal SAP-PI interfaces." 1 Hour Business Overview Ulrich Haeberlein
Michael Steinfurth
BOV127294 - Success in Enterprise DevOps; Data Center Modernization and Infrastructure Agility Enterprise DevOps? Is that a real thing? or does it even fit together? Yes, they both benefit from each other combining into Enterprise DevOps. If you go deeper to understand it there have been modern transitions which have called for a structured approach to determine the requirements, appropriate architecture choices, solutions, long-term growth and monitoring to have success in the enterprise. Today we deal with traditional data center needs and emerging technology needs which the industry has labeled mode 1 and mode 2. Data center modernization and consolidation is the continuous optimization and enhancement of existing data center infrastructure, enabling better support for mission-critical and Mode 1 applications. The companion Key Initiative, "Infrastructure Agility" focuses on Mode 2. Living in this Bi-Modal enterprise environment means that we must take action to ensure there is no harm to mission-critical workloads, determine how to optimize the infrastructure while creating an enterprise data center built on DevOps with agility and scalability. Join us to learn about the right approach with tools and best practices to help you make informed decisions for your modernization and infrastructure agility projects. 1 Hour Business Overview Kai Dupke

CAS126499 - How Scientific Applications Change HPC Operations "Traditional access to HPC systems is provided through batch jobs submitted directly by users. Today, an increasing number of software tools are accessible through web portals. This improved ease of use has led to a democratization of access to computational resources, allowing scientists without computational backgrounds to carry out data- and compute-intensive analyses. However, these persistent services do not integrate well into a classic, batch-oriented HPC system. This shift in requirements for emerging services demands a re-evaluation of infrastructure planning and deployment. Join us as we present our ongoing efforts to fulfill these requirements in our existing system and how we plan to address them in a next-generation data analysis platform." 1 Hour Case Study Erich Birngruber
Umit Seren

Dan Elder
CAS126615 - Moving Beyond Infrastructure as Code "The data center is getting bigger and more complex, and the microservice revolution is creating even more moving parts with application stacks that may contain hundreds and thousands of containers and services. How do we move beyond the old patterns of configuration management and infrastructure as code to what's required to survive in a world of distributed systems? If application developers can write event-driven programs to listen and react to stimulus, why can't operators do the same for infrastructure? In this talk, Thomas Hatch, SaltStack technical founder and CTO, will discuss how to control modern data center complexity and turn it to a competitive advantage using SaltStack and SUSE technologies. Hatch will provide insight into the SaltStack model for event-driven infrastructure and the emerging framework for intelligent, responsive application stack management. Modern data center commodities have never been so diverse. From bare-metal to containers and Kubernetes to web servers, SaltStack and SUSE have solutions to bring order and peace of mind to a complex new world." 1 Hour Case Study Thomas Hatch

CAS127173 - SAP HANA on Power Systems This case study covers the implementation of SAP HANA on power systems in the Czech Republic. The implementation includes clusters, OS automated backup/restore procedures, Puppet management, and monitoring in a SAP HANA enterprise environment. 1 Hour Case Study Martin Vaňous
CAS127176 - Email Storage with Ceph @ SUSE Enterprise Storage "Most enterprise email solutions make use of traditional local file systems or shared file systems like NFS to store data, indexes and caches. Software-defined storage solutions such as Ceph have disrupted the storage market in the last few years because they offer more options, like object store. For emails, object store is a logical choice as a storage backend. Ceph offers two object store backends: Rados Gateway (RGW) via S3/Swift and librados itself to store objects directly in a Ceph cluster. For an email system with millions of active customers, the Rados Gateway would very likely become a bottleneck. To achieve maximum performance using parallel I/O from all clients, librados is the best option because it uses the native RADOS protocol and involves fewer software layers. This talk will provide insight in what Deutsche Telekom, together with partners and SUSE products, is doing to move from NFS to Ceph-based storage for email. To make use of Ceph, we developed an open source library called librmb (librados mailbox) to unify email storage via librados." 1 Hour Case Study Danny Al-Gaaf
CAS127188 - SUSE Cloud 7Ttransforms i-Layer's Hybrid Cloud Service After almost a decade of using static SLES to provide hybrid Cloud services to UK businesses, i-Layer UK has succeeded in transforming the flexibility and automation of their offering using SUSE Cloud 7.

Gabriel Cavalcante
CAS127723 - Scaling C++ Development and Quality Assurance "Today's C++ software development infrastructures have to deal with a number of challenges. In this talk, I’ll provide insight in a very common one: the balance between the demand for new features, code, and technology and the strict need for stable software code lines and a reliable software development environment. At SAP we develop the HANA Database Core with a large team distributed around the globe. This effort would be impossible without a highly automated infrastructure for building and testing our software. Through our partnership with SUSE, we receive the software pieces for storage, containerization and, of course, a state-of-the-art development toolchain. In this talk, I’ll show how we put all of these together to run development 24/7." 1 Hour Case Study Matthias Männich

SPO127196 - How to minimize or completely avoid downtimes in operating SAP (HANA) landscapes. Overview of related topics and methods with emphasis on OS handling. SAP on Linux? Yes, we’re doing that for nearly 20 years now, no issue in the meantime – SUSE Linux is more than mature enough for the task. If you run SAP on Linux, you will be also running SAP HANA – of course, also on Linux - if not now, then soon. The migration towards an in-memory-database HANA brings not only benefits like faster execution of transactions but also some interesting challenges regarding application downtime. Intrinsically, in-memory-DBs tend to make very demanding SLAs quite difficult and normally lead to longer downtimes compared to classical databases. Unfortunately, this typically conflicts with increased user requirements for shorter downtimes, and even zero downtime, without compromising classical goals like high degree of flexibility etc. The demand of short or zero downtime addresses both planned and unplanned downtimes, requiring solutions to address both different sets of requirements. (Near) Zero Downtime solution have to respect the whole stack from technical infrastructure like storage, network, server (including its OS), hypervisor technology, supporting software like clustering and other HA solutions, and last but not least the application itself. We look at all these components – with a special focus on SUSE SLES4SAP handling – and present possible solutions to each of them as well as an integrated solution for all of them together where downtime can be minimized or optimized. In this session we look at all areas of interest for minimizing or avoiding downtime of SAP HANA based applications, with a special focus on how to handle SUSE Linux, and show what possibilities exist to fulfill the demand in a single solution. 1 Hour Sponsor Robin Knapp

TUT119026 - One-click Deployment with SUSE Manager Your goal is to help your customer who wants an automated process that builds and deploys their own applications automatically as VMWare guests, updating stages within SUSE Manager. If possible, this should all be done with Salt and from a website (preferable Jenkins), without the intervention of the administrators. The solution? Use SUSE Manager as the central point for channels and deployment. On SUSE Manager, salt-cloud will be used to build VMWare guests, and the VM can be stopped and started, all triggered from Jenkins. There are (python) scripts in place to perform the updates in the staged channels. This will be initiated from Jenkins. In addition, SUSE Consulting has built a script that creates RPMs from developed software. This software is stored in GIT (gitlab). Building the RPMs will be initiated from Jenkins. With Jenkins, a new VM will be created, the needed autoinstall profile in SUSE Manager will be created, cobbler will be prepared to install the server with PXE and the VM will be started, which will then be autoprovisioned. After installation, the new server will be registered in SUSE Manager and automatically be configured using Salt. 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Michael Brookhuis

TUT126310 - Turning Your Private Cloud into HPC as a Service (HPCaaS) "While many traditional High Performance Computing (HPC) users assume the need for tuned, bare-metal systems as worker nodes, there are still large categories of HPC workloads and processes suitable for cloud instances. In fact, many early or late lifecycle HPC jobs might already be a natural fit for a cloud environment where access to an entire HPC cluster is not needed. For a private cloud instance (typically based on OpenStack), some of the more performance-specific attributes such as low-latency networking, parallel file systems and hardware-specific attribute pass-through continue to evolve, but they have already matured to handle certain HPC use cases. Couple this with available orchestration technologies, such as Heat or Magnum or Ironic, and entire mini-HPC clusters can be launched upon demand with the necessary workloads—whether virtual machines, containers or even bare-metal systems. It is also possible to schedule resources and compute jobs across a hybrid HPC and cloud ecosystem, with federated authentication sources, while still providing needed isolation of storage and data. This session will illustrate how the inherently multi-tenant environment of SUSE OpenStack Cloud can offer HPCaaS to allow better utilization of compute, storage and networking resources to a broad range of HPC use cases." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Bryan Gartner

TUT126311 - Security: from Boot through Runtime "On almost any given day, security concerns around computing are reported. To deal with this, both IT and solution providers must consider the entire scope of their offering. Classic layered security strategies (or layered defense) encourage multiple, independent methods to protect assets and the resources that provide them. This approach is equally applicable to mission-critical systems in controlled data centers and distributed IoT ecosystems. The strategies help to mitigate risk and delay the advance of attacks in order for you to react appropriately. This session highlights methods across all the layers—from hardware up to applications—that are compatible with and enabled by an operating system like SUSE Linux Enterprise." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Bryan Gartner

TUT126404 - Building, Maintaining and Delivering Complete Software Appliances "For many embedded, application or software solution providers, the complexity of providing a single final deployment image to customers is a challenge. Enabled with tooling used by and open-sourced from SUSE, an entire DevOps-style ecosystem from build to delivery is possible using either public resources or an onsite local setup. A choice of custom or existing applications packages can be provided on top of a built-for-purpose, minimized operating system. Integrated functionality testing of the deliverables, included as a part of this streamlined process, works across multiple versions, architectures and output formats. The components of the SUSE tool chain provide all of these capabilities, whether the final target image is a component package, a microservice container, a virtual machine or a full preload install image.

This tutorial will provide information on how to set up such an environment and demonstrate the powerful GPU workload orchestration capabilities of SUSE CaaS Platform in Amazon Web Services (AWS)." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Michael Echavarria
TUT126588 - Traditional Networking, SDN, NFV and VNFs: A Primer by Way of a Firehose "In this talk, Mark Darnell, the OpenStack NFV/SDN and Helion Product Manager, will define the architecture of a typical web farm application in a traditional, physical networking environment. Concepts such as switches, VLANs, zones, firewalls, routers, and CLIs will also be introduced. To modernize the web farm deployment, he will migrate it into a software-defined networking (SDN) deployment, highlighting the tool, cost, and performance differences of the environments. Finally, one or more of the web farm networking components will be virtualized, and the concepts of NFV and VNF will be introduced. Attendees will also be introduced to partners and packages to reference for different parts of SDN and NFV/VN. Expertise in networking is not required to attend and benefit from this talk, but the ability to drink from a firehose will be helpful. The slide set from this talk will make a useful reference for decoding other network-related talks. Should this talk prove popular, we anticipate providing hands-on sessions working with NFV and SDN technologies at future SUSECON events. The talk is tagged as technical beginner, but some of the concepts might be new for business-focused individuals, as well as for advanced technical attendees not familiar with SDN or NFV." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Mark Darnell

TUT126883 - Think Containers: Check the Boxes, but Don't be a Box Checker "Containers are a valuable tool, and as with all tools, it’s important to use the right tool for the job at hand. For example, you can certainly drive a screw using a hammer, but the results may vary and—under any circumstances—using a screwdriver will yield better results. Containers have a lot of momentum and, unfortunately, are often advertised as a silver bullet. However, we all know silver bullets don’t exist. Thus, this talk will examine the various technologies that relate to containers. We will look at containers as such and why treating them as black boxes might not be the best approach. We will take a look at immutable infrastructure and how immutable it really is when considering container build technologies. And, we'll take a look at portability and scalability, advertised as the area where containers outshine everything else. The examples will highlight that checking a box to be in the ""in crowd"" is great, but not necessarily for everything all the time. So, check the boxes, but don't be a box checker!" 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Robert Schweikert

TUT127282 - Different Container Types and How to Build Them "There are many different kinds of container types: from classic VMs and chroot via Docker to desktop-oriented containers such as AppImage. And containers can be built in various ways: using rpm packages or avoiding them, using different tools like Kiwi, or using native tools. They can be automated using the Open Build Service (OBS). This tutorial will provide an overview of the different options. We will also show what SUSE uses and what other options are available in OBS. We will discuss the consequences of using containers—for example, keeping them up to date in an automated way. We will show how this can be done with DevOps and also in a pure development environment with automated testing using OBS (showing a fully automated workflow from git/svn/.. commit or released maintenance updates to deployed containers)." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Adrian Schröter

TUT127309 - Hybrid Consistency Model in Kernel Live Patching Safe runtime code replacement in a multi-threaded environment requires special care. A security fix might contain semantic interdependence between multiple functions. Combined with parallel execution on multiple processors, careless replacement could introduce unwanted behavior in the system. Calling an updated code from the original one and vice versa should be avoided at all times. In this session we will take a look at what forms the core of kernel live patching and how we ensure that the operation is both safe and efficient, even under high workload. 1 Hour Technical Tutorial Miroslav Beneš
TUT127319 - Virtual Networking in the NFVi "NFV is a complex world made of hardware technologies and software stacks. A key component is the NFV infrastructure, which provides the environment on which the Virtual Networking Functions run. The ecosystem of software/hardware for the NFVI is growing day by day, making customers’ lives very difficult: Which platform to buy? Which stack to deploy? Which Virtual Networking solution should be adopted? Answering all these questions is far from an easy task. In this presentation, we will provide you with the current state of the vSwitch ecosystem (i.e. Open vSwitch, VPP), discuss different approaches for common use cases, explore deployment and integration challenges (i.e. SDN controller and orchestration integration), and review the questions you should ask before choosing your final networking software stack. This presentation will help developers and end users who are getting closer to the NFV world familiarize themselves with the existing NFV technologies and, potentially, help them chose what to focus on based on our perspective. Attendees can expect a detailed update on the current open source vSwitch portfolio, new trends, and ongoing discussions within the open source community." 1 Hour Technical Tutorial MARCO VARLESE
