About this event

Hi, Kubernetes and OpenShift Lovers:

A few of you reached out to me in the previous gatherings for the coverage of Helm. Guess what? In the next week, AT&T and Lenovo proudly present "OpenStack Helm Container Innovation" on June 6 (Thursday). My dear friend, Brandon Jozsa from AT&T, will join us from Charlotte. Brandon will deliver two talks back to back:

1) How to set up Kubernetes cluster on top of Kubernetes

2) Deploying OpenStack on Kubernetes by OpenStack-Helm project

A special thanks to Lenovo team, Rich Wellum, Teri and Miroslav, for organizing and sponsoring this event in the heart of RTP! Please note that, due to room capacity, we only have 57 seats. RSVP as soon as possible!

Something about 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."

Outline of Talks:

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.
