Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91274

From the beginning SUSE Manager has been able to manage more than just SLE systems. With SUSE Manager 3 we can integrate with RH and CentOS systems well.

Get insight into how this can be done, along with tips and tricks from customer experiences that can help make it a reality for you. Slides and live demo will add to this discussion.

Don Vosburg has worked with integrating non-SUSE distributions in SUSE Manager for years, and brings a depth and breadth to the topic.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91266

Upgrading a huge software stack is always a big problem in a production environment with many services relying on the availability of the software stack. This problem can often be experienced while upgrading SUSE OpenStack Cloud in production environments. To minimize the downtime, upgrading from SUSE OpenStack Cloud 6 to SUSE OpenStack Cloud 7 and future releases will be made non-disruptive for the important services. But every Cloud deployment and use case is different, and this implies that every upgrade will be a little different from others.

This talk will give an overview of the recommended preparations and requirements to make the upgrade as smooth as possible. Beside this, we will also show the different ways that an Administrator can upgrade the Cloud.

Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT91248

Deploying production-ready OpenStack is a complex process that asks for a lot of knowledge. Next to OpenStack other services often exist in a data center which have different constraints. A unified deployment tool significantly reduces the workload for operators and developers.

Crowbar is a mature and extensible Open Source provisioning framework wich makes it easy to rapidly and flexibly deploy OpenStack clouds, Ceph storage setups or other software stacks like Cloud Foundry on OpenStack onto bare metal. It also can utilize different architectures like x86 or z Systems and platforms like Linux distributions or Microsoft Windows.

This session will explain the Crowbar architecture and how to easily build custom plugins to integrate third party applications. It will offer an outlook at the future of the project and how to become part of the community to contribute and influence the direction of the project.

Crowbar source code and documentation are available from https://github.com/crowbar

At its core, Ceph provides a reliable, distributed object store. CephFS builds upon this to provide a POSIX-compatible clustered filesystem, offering the potential to scale further than similar projects around today.

This talk will introduce CephFS, look at its architecture, use cases, and explore some of the impressive features it has to offer.

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.

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.
