Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91175

With the emergence of Virtualization many years ago, image building and usage started to become important. The importance of image building, life cycle management, and image/instance management has only increased with the rise of the Public Cloud and Containers.

This talk will examine the topics that surround image building, image maintenance and testing for the various technologies where images are useful. The talk will also highlight useful tools to help support an infrastructure that is based around images. Finally, not to fall short on buzz-words, the talk will also examine topics surrounding the latest craze, the so called immutable infrastructure.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91122

Enter the mind of a common hacker and think like they do. This presentation will look into common techniques and technologies used to break your systems. Once we know how to hack your system, we’ll talk about easy-to-implement countermeasures. Portscan your own system, become a black hole, create adaptive firewalls, and implement mandatory access controls available with SUSE’s SELinux. Lean how to detect attacks in-progress, who is attacking you, and how to determine if a system is already compromised. This presentation promotes a balanced approach to security, keeping systems useful and accessible to authorized users, while with a little effort, thwarting most, if not all, malicious hacking attempts. Craig Lamparter is a twenty-four year veteran of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, with a focus on Linux research and deployment/support principles. Craig is responsible for enabling Linux on ProLiant hardware, an active community advocate and works with a variety of OSS topics and technologies.

Robert Grosschopff – SUSE
Joao Luis – SUSE Linux

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91098

This session will discuss the experiences the field has had while setting up multiple PoCs and implementing SUSE Enterprise Storage during the past year.

Based on different usage, possible design scenarios are discussed. This will assist you to know how to select the right hardware and how to size SES in such a way that it fulfills your requirements. We will discuss how to design SUSE Enterprise Storage to be used in single or multiple data centers including placement of the different gateways.

Real world examples based on different hardware setups will also be explained. This will help the administrator understand the different ways that SES can operate, given the various tasks that an administrator needs to do on a regular basis.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91066

SAP HANA was released several years ago but up to today there hasn’t been an easy option for developers / consultants to train or develop on a laptop. In this tutorial, I will show which possibilities you have and how easy it is to use HANA. Besides the instructions to start an instance on your local laptop, I will show you the tools to create your first table/indexes.

Rodolfo Bejarano – Suse
Craig Liddle – SUSE

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT90531

Security is a key topic in IT and SUSE OpenStack Cloud contains the Keystone service for seamless integration with an LDAP backend. With this service you can configure authentication and authorization services. This allows you to not only configure which users are able to use SUSE OpenStack Cloud but at the same time, you can limit the level of access for each user.

In this session, we will explain and demonstrate Keystone’s configuration files as well as on the LDAP side, whether you use Active Directory or eDirectory. Additionally, we will show how to separate role authorization and user authentication using the Assignment feature in Keystone.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT90009

Customers and partners are using the KVM and Xen virtualization stacks in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to satisfy diverse use-cases. A few of the more popular ones include consolidation, high availability, cloud compute resources and big data.

This session discusses the plethora of tuning mechanisms to be considered when optimizing the implementation of your use-case. Tuning controls for virtual network and block devices, virtual CPUs, host memory resources, physical and virtual NUMA resources will be presented and analyzed, along with their impact on the system.

Tuning an implementation requires the ability to observe the system performance. The session will also include a discussion of the monitoring capabilities available in the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server virtualization management tools.
