Speaker:
Klaus Kämpf – SUSE Linux

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91637

The combination of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana, commonly known as ‘ELK’, provide a state-of-the-art tool stack to monitor and analyze logs.

This tutorial gives a brief introduction to these tools and best practices how to deploy and use them. Special focus will be given to ELK in the context of SUSE Manager and SUSE Storage.

Markus Gürtler – SUSE
Stefan Schneider – Amazon Webservices

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91614

This case study shows how a cluster built on SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension can be used to build extremely reliable SAP HANA database failover architectures in the public AWS cloud. The audience will learn how a SUSE High Availability cluster, combined with the AWS cloud, allows customers to implement SAP architectures which:
– are hardened against any local data center failure
– are standardized and can be automated and used worldwide
– have increased security since all configuration changes of the cluster will be strictly limited to the required resources
– set new standards for auditability since all configuration changes will be tracked by the AWS cloud infrastructure.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91589

Networking has always been a complicated and delicate topic. Things get even more complicated in the world of containers, where lots of containers are continuously being created and moved over entire data centers.

Several choices are available, each one having a slightly different implementation and its own peculiarities. This leads to a lot of confusion when a networking solution has to be chosen.

This talk illustrates how the major networking solutions for Linux application containers work. We’ll address their implementation details, their positive and negative aspects and how they influence the deployment of distributed applications.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91573

As more and more users are starting to consider Docker in production environments, people have realized that having Docker alone is not enough. Instead, the community is gearing towards orchestration solutions: tools, frameworks and practices that deal with how containers are deployed on production and how administrators can monitor all this without going crazy.

Join us for this brief journey into SUSE’s orchestration choice: Kubernetes.

OpenDOC: Automating Documentation

Speaker:
Markus Feilner – SUSE

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91546

In this session we will suggest a new approach to documentation, breaking the perception that a rolling release cannot be documented. Forums, mailing lists, wikis, release notes, Git commit comments, QA tools like Open QA or the SUSE Build Service and many more sources deliver an abundance of resources that offer indicators for documentation. However the data is neither collected nor structured nor viewed at all, mostly because everybody thinks it’s a tedious work. But modern knowledge management tools can collect the data, analyze and structure it, add semantics and put it into a format that a community, a company or an OSS corporation can benefit from – receiving a usable basis for further work with minimal human input.

Imagine a website like Stackoverflow or Reddit (but open source and company-independent) with automated input, but ranked by interest (views), helpfulness and discussion thread length. The input triggers could become an open project, like Open QA’s tests. A “Doc Gardener” could then pick up the most important tasks and move them to openSUSE wiki or Enterprise Documentation, at the same time helping the community and spotting pain points of the community.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91504

Whether you think you have DevOps or you’re thinking of having a more DevOps-focused infrastructure, there are always gaps to fill and processes that can be more refined to adapt and respond to your business needs and growth. Come and hear how SUSE innovation around DevOps can help fill those gaps and get you on your way to a better future for your CI/CD needs today.

Let’s talk about the tools, the applications and the processes, and discover together what you really need today. We will discuss tools such as OBS, Jenkins, SUSE Studio, Kiwi, Docker (Microservices), Software Defined Storage (Ceph), OpenStack, and many others which will help forge your path to success.

Speakers:
Cameron Seader – SUSE
Anika Suri – NetApp

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91502

Manila is the OpenStack shared filesystem service that was announced in September of 2013. In January 2015 it became an officially incubated OpenStack program. Now with the current stable release in Liberty, Manila is providing the management of file shares (for example, NFS and CIFS) as a core service to OpenStack. Manila currently works with a variety of vendors, including NetApp, Red Hat Storage (GlusterFS), EMC, IBM GPFS, Hitachi, HPE, and on a base Linux NFS server.

In this session, we will provide an introduction to the Manila file share service, a description of the logical architecture of Manila and its API structure, examples of use cases, an exploration of what’s coming in mitaka from share replication, LVM, CephFS and data copy service. We will also include a brief demo.

Your VMware environment is here to stay, but you want to take advantage of the CI/CD that OpenStack can give you, as well as the flexibility for your future innovation and project needs.

Come and learn how to integrate VMware with OpenStack. We will touch on the various available drivers from Cinder connecting to VMware, Nova using the vCenter Driver, and Glance connecting to VMware. You will come away with everything you need to know to begin setting up and integrating OpenStack with VMware.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91496

SUSE is the operating system market leader for SAP HANA. SUSE is also leading in the area of dynamic software updates, a technology allowing administrators to patch systems without the need of an application restart or even reboot. The Live Patching technology allows you to update the Linux Kernel without a reboot. But how does it work, what are the benefits and what does it look like when live patching the Linux Kernel powering an SAP system? This session provides a quick overview on the topic and then demonstrates the technology with a full blown SAP system on top.

Docker and other container technologies offer an exciting path forward to modernize application architectures around microservices and stateless environments. This allows for all kinds of security benefits (which we’ll discuss), but your data still needs to live somewhere and be accessible everywhere. Ceph is an ideal software defined storage platform for keeping your valuable data accessible to your Docker environment particularly with technologies like CephFS now part of SUSE Enterprise Storage. It’s easier than ever to build out a robust storage environment for container-based workloads. In this session, we’ll show you how.
