About this event

Hello Triangle Kubernuts and OpenShifters! We are so happy to announce our 14th meetup session on Thursday, April 13th!


6:00-6:30pm: Gather, network, pizza 

6:30 - 7:15pm: "6Fusion's deployment of Kubernetes" by Jonathan Arrance from 6Fusion.

1. Meter architecture and how we take advantage of Kubernetes to give us a scalable, resilient, micro services based system that is stable and easy to upgrade.

2. Overall architecture of our system and how it relates to a modern data center and multi-tenant cloud environment.

3. What are the benefits of using a consumption based model in IT.

4. The obvious Q and A that will take place.

Here is a short bio from Jonathan:

"In 1996 I joined the Marine Corps,  when I got out I went to school and graduated from NCSU College of Engineering in 2004, while at NCSU I started working at NetApp. I was at NetApp for 9 years where I helped build 3 of their data centers, worked in the VMware interoperability group, and did a lot of lab and test automation work. When I left in 2011, I went to NDG where I helped integrate VMware with their lab management system. Recently I was the founder and CTO of TransCirrus where we built an OpenStack based hyper-converged appliance that could be racked up and set up in under 30 minutes giving you a fully functional OpenStack environment that could be very easily expanded with our patent pending ZeroConnect protocol. Currently I am with 6fusion where I am the senior director of technology delivery."

7:15 - 7:30pm: Break

7:30 - 8:15pm: "OpenStack-Helm: Deploying Service-Level Kubernetes Helm Charts for OpenStack Services" by Brandon Jozsa from AT&T

There is a new OpenStack deployment project being announced in Boston this year: OpenStack-Helm. Originally started by AT&T, OpenStack-Helm is a Kubernetes-native, Helm-based community project aiming to simplify not only the installation of OpenStack services, but also provide better lifecycle management of deployed applications using Helm upgrade and rollback features. It allows operators to deploy per-service Helm Charts (templated Kubernetes manifests) as a complete set of microservices that are loosely coupled in relation to one another. 
Imagine deploying Ceph, Cinder or Keystone with just a single command. By using Helm's values override option, operators can customize each of these service-level deployments to match their enterprise specific requirements. Install one, several, or all of OpenStack's services to build a completely customized private cloud solution on top of Kubernetes. Leveraging Kubernetes natively allows operators to be agnostic to both container image and runtime formats, take advantage of auto-scaling features, and many other benefits. 

Here is a short bio from Brandon:

"Brandon Jozsa is a Community Development Team Lead for AT&T and Co-Founder of the OpenStack-Helm project. He will give us a sneak peek into the vision behind the project and discuss what makes OpenStack-Helm unique over other deployment options. Demonstration will be provided during the presentation."
