Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session CAS91763

The 64-bit ARM architecture has become increasingly popular in the enterprise, especially in the area of Storage and Networking, but also in markets related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and more embedded use cases. In this talk, experts from these fields will cover use cases and best practices for selecting and designing solutions that involve openSUSE as well as SUSE products and share their practical experiences with that architecture, highlighting opportunities and potential pitfalls to watch out for.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session BOV92653

Tradionally storage has been built piecemeal into an extraordinarily complex environment in its architecture, upkeep and financial liability. It’s hard to budget for, hard to maintain, and impossible to do without. IT teams have a choice. They can use the approach they always have, adding new storage as current circumstances demand and the business drives them. Alternatively, they can use new technology–software defined storage–to re-architect storage to be smarter, less complicated and infinitely scalable. The presentation looks at the compelling economics of Ceph based Software Defined Storage.

Speaker:
Carsten Dieterle – IBM

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session CAS91545

In this session Carsten Dieterle, Leading SAP Solution Architect with IBM, will talk about a first-of-a-kind solution for setting up SAP HANA on IBM Power private cloud solution in the datacenter of a large customer in the automotive area. In this solution the fully-automated installation of SLES Linux LPAR’s through PowerVC as well as the unattended installation of SAP HANA (use cases SAP BW scale-up and scale-out installations or Suite on HANA) with the required storage and CPU and memory ratio are included. In addition we integrated SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension (SUSE HAE) for business critical systems to minimize downtime and automated failover to the backup datacenter. With this setup the development departments of the customer are able to deploy SAP HANA installation on demand. As orchestration tool for the deployment we use IBM cloud orchestrator. For the infrastructure solution the client chose a combination of high-end Power8 E880 machines, ESS storage solution in combination with an IB Infiniband network.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session CAS91402

S2 deploys data centers in Tohoku, Japan. To grow its business, S2 wanted to provide optimized IaaS cloud environments for government, entertainment and gaming. These customers needed a cloud infrastructure that easily handles peak Internet traffic while minimizing downtime or cost fluctuations. The answer was using SUSE® OpenStack Cloud with MidoNet virtual network for a hybrid cloud infrastructure that can be rapidly deployed for reliable commercial services.

S2 CEO Mr. Sudo says: “When we asked SUSE engineers to build a test environment in our office, they generously stepped in and got SUSE OpenStack Cloud up and running in just three hours. Not only were they able to set up the environment quickly, it was practically operational and stable to a production level straight away. Whereas we had previously spent a year and a half on the project and were not able to add OpenStack to our portfolio, after only three months of validation work with SUSE, we were ready to commercially offer it to our customers.”
