Kubernetes is one the major orchestration solutions for Linux containers. It makes it easy to have distributed, self-healing and autoscaling container clusters. But operators often have a hard time setting up a Kubernetes cluster and it can take quite a lot of effort even for the creation of a simple cluster. Things get even more challenging when security, flexibility and scalability have to be taken into account. And what about making everything automated to satisfy the requests of all the tenants?

Lots of developers and operators are running away from this complexity by using the Kubernetes offerings inside of the public clouds. Is this the only one solution?

This talk will show how OpenStack can act as the perfect platform to run Kuberenetes clusters by using the Magnum project. This gives you a fully automated deployment system for cloud applications and the following features:

1. Automatic scheduling of containers based on their resource requirements and other constraints, while not sacrificing availability. Mix critical and best-effort workloads in order to drive up utilization and save even more resources.
2. Self-healing and restarting containers that fail, replacing and rescheduling containers when a node dies, killing containers that don´t respond to your user-defined health check and providing containers that don´t advertise themselves to clients until they are ready to serve.
3. Horizontal scaling up and down with a simple command or based on CPU usage.
4. Service discovery and load balancing.
5. Automated rollouts and rollbacks and many others.

Now is the time to give OpenStack cloud operators a self-service solution for providing containers to their cloud users as a managed hosted service. The OpenStack Magnum component simplifies the required integration with Kubernetes and allows cloud users who can already launch cloud resources such as Nova Instances, Cinder Volumes, Trove Databases, etc. to also create application containers to run their applications.

SUSE Linux Enterprise provides a solid platform to customers thanks largely to a community project that experiments and implements many of the innovative technologies that you see in commercial products today.

That community project is openSUSE. This talk will discuss the latest developments in the openSUSE Project, specifically the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling distribution, and the openSUSE Leap hybrid distribution. It will also shed light on other technologies being developed inside openSUSE, such as OBS and openQA and share insights into some possibilities for the future.

It will also detail areas where the openSUSE project directly impacts Enterprise customers, and the benefits of SLE customers being more involved as community members.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session CAS89289

openQA is an automated testing tool capable of full system, console, and graphical application testing. This session will give an introduction to openQA’s capabilities and share how it is used by SUSE for the testing of SUSE Linux Enterprise – as well as by openSUSE for the testing of Tumbleweed and Leap.

The talk will go into some detail as to how openQA tests a very wide range of scenarios relevant to the SUSE Linux Enterprise products, including multiple architectures, extensions and modules, as well as virtual and ‘real hardware’ platforms.

The session will suggest ideas to attendees as how it could be used for testing their software, operating systems, or virtual machine images.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session CAS89126

At OXYA, a leading SAP hosting company, we are bold on the topic of Linux HANA clustering: do it with SLES High Availability or forget it . For 10 years, OXYA has been clustering the SAP world with all kind of technologies. Our experience with SLES HA for SAP over 5 years, and 2 years with HANA clustering gives us all the confidence we need to bet our SLAs of HA for HANA on SUSE.

OXYA developed a 7-step validation program, automatized installation, combination with SUSE MANAGER, backed with extended experience of years of best practices and troubleshooting. Some customers, based on poor experiences, try to avoid clustering when they can. Come and see how you can trust efficient clustering technology whenever it is required, to guarantee flawless uptime for SAP HANA. Presentation will include a detailed set-up of a HANA high-availibility solution and live demo of failover + failback between HANA systems.
