More on OpenStack Live and our talks at OpenStack Summit Vancouver

In April and May, Percona will hold and participate in two OpenStack events: OpenStack Live and the OpenStack Summit. Join our talks at these events in Santa Clara and Vancouver for new insights into the MySQL operations of the core of OpenStack as well as the latest information on MySQL guest instances.

Bay Area OpenStack Live 2015Next week (April 13-14), Percona will host OpenStack Live at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Conveniently located for those in the Bay Area, this two day, user-focused event will cover many core aspects of OpenStack including Nova, Swift, Neutron, and Trove as well as related technologies like Ceph and Docker. (OpenStack Live passes include access to keynotes and the expo hall at the Percona Live MySQL Conference.)

OpenStack Live will be a packed two days with 6 hands-on tutorials, 18 sessions, and keynotes and panel discussions featuring speakers from Facebook, EMC, ObjectRocket, Percona, Yahoo, VMware, Deep Information Sciences, and special guest, Steve Wozniak. Yes, the real Steve Wozniak.

Of course I’m looking forward to my session, “An introduction to Database as a Service with an emphasis on OpenStack using Trove,” with Amrith Kumar, Founder and CTO of Tesora, on Tuesday from 11:30am – 12:20pm in Room 209. Some other topics you shouldn’t miss include:

Tutorial: Deploying, Configuring and Operating OpenStack Trove
Monday, April 13: 9:30am – 12:30pm in Room 203
Amrith Kumar (Tesora) and Sriram Kalyanasundaram (Tesora) will lead a 3 hour hands-on tutorial on Trove DBaaS. It’s rare to get such a focused tutorial on this key component of OpenStack and led by Tesora, major contributors to the Trove project. If you are even considering implementing Trove for your cloud, this is a must-attend class.

Tutorial: How to Get Your Groove on with OpenStack Swift Object Storage
Monday, April 13: 1:30pm – 4:30pm in Room 204
John Dickinson (OpenStack Swift), Manzoor Brar (SwiftStack), and Sergei Glushenko (Percona) will lead the audience on a journey into Swift, OpenStack’s object store project. John, the Swift “Project Team Lead” (PTL), and Manzoor will show you how to deploy a Swift cluster, use it with real applications, and, with the assistance of Sergei from Percona, how to properly backup MySQL databases to a Swift cluster.

Sessions which I’d recommend attending are:

Session: MySQL and OpenStack deep dive
Tuesday, April 14: 11:30am – 12:20pm in Room 204
Peter Boros (Percona)

Session: Deploying a OpenStack Cloud at Scale at Time Warner Cable
Tuesday, April 14: 1:20pm – 2:10pm in Room 203
Matthew Fischer (Time Warner Cable), Clayton O’Neill (Time Warner Cable)

Session: Designing a highly resilient Network Infrastructure for OpenStack Clouds
Tuesday, April 14: 3:50pm – 4:40pm in Room 203
Pere Monclus (PLUMgrid)

This is only a small sample of the tutorials and talks which you will hear at OpenStack Live. If you’re in the Bay Area next week and are interested in OpenStack or just want to learn more about some of the core components, register today to join us in Santa Clara from April 13-14. It will be well worth the investment.

As a reminder, getting the most out of all tutorials at OpenStack Live requires that you bring your own laptop and are ready to dig into the technologies. Review the session descriptions for any materials that should be downloaded or installed prior to the event.

Talks at OpenStack Summit Vancouver

Next month, Percona will join thousands in Vancouver for the next OpenStack Summit. In addition to helping those developing and running OpenStack to operate, optimize, and achieve high availability of the MySQL core, Percona MySQL experts will speak in two sessions.

Deep Dive into MySQL replication with OpenStack Trove, and Kilo
George Lorch (Percona) and Amrith Kumar (Tesora) will present an in depth exploration of MySQL replication with Trove and Kilo capabilities. This is a great way for anyone interested in OpenStack DBaaS to find out the latest information.

Core Services MySQL Database Backup and Recovery to Swift
Most OpenStack services rely heavily on MySQL, but how do you mitigate data loss in the event of a failed upgrade or unplanned outage? Kenny Gryp (Percona) and Chris Nelson (SwiftStack), experts in MySQL and storage, will discuss this challenge and provide advice and strategies for a fast, complete recovery from highly available storage sources.

The team from Percona will again be found in the exhibit hall at booth T37. We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones that rely on Percona software, such as the Galera-based Percona XtraDB Cluster and Percona XtraBackup, in their OpenStack clouds.

OpenStack Live 2015: FAQs on the who, what, where, when, why & how

This April 13-14 Percona is introducing an annual conference called OpenStack Live. I’ve seen a few questions about the new event so decided to help clarify what this show is about and who should attend.

Unlike OpenStack Summits, held twice a year and dedicated to primarily to developers, OpenStack Live is an opportunity for OpenStack evaluators and users of all levels to learn from experts on topics such as how to deploy, optimize, and manage OpenStack and the role of MySQL as a crucial technology in this free and open-source cloud computing software platform. A full day of hands-on tutorials will also focus on making OpenStack users more productive and confident in this emerging technology.

OpenStack Live 2015: FAQs on the who, what, where, when, why & howStill confused about OpenStack Live 2015? Fear not! Here are the answers to commonly asked questions.

Q: Who should attend?
A: You should attend…

  • if you are currently using OpenStack and want to improve your skills and knowledge
  • if you are evaluating or considering using it.
  • if you are a solutions provider – this is your opportunity to show the world your contributions and services

Q: Percona Live has a conference committee. Does OpenStack Live have one, too?
A: Yes and it’s a completely different committee comprised of:

  • Mark Atwood, Director of Open Source Engagement at HP (Conference Chairman)
  • Rich Bowen, OpenStack Community Liaison at Red Hat
  • Jason Rouault, Senior Director OpenStack Cloud at Time Warner Cable
  • Peter Boros, Principal Architect at Percona

Q: Are the tutorials really “hands-on”?
A: Yes and most are at least 3-hours long. So you’ll need your laptop and power cord. Here’s a look at all of the OpenStack tutorials.

OpenStack Live attendees will also have access to the Percona Live/OpenStack Live Exhibit hall, keynotes, receptions and FUN activities April 13 and 16, allowing them to dive deeper into MySQL topics such as high availability, security, performance optimization, and much more. However, the OpenStack Live pass does not allow access to Percona Live breakout sessions or tutorials.

Q: Where can I register?
A: You can register here and take advantage of Early Bird discounts but those end Feb. 1 at 11:30 p.m. PST, so hurry!
