OpenStack Summit October 2015 - Tokyo

NEC at OpenStack Summit Tokyo 2015

OpenStack is a rapidly evolving open-source project supported by thousands of developers. NEC meets regularly to devise new features, fix bugs, and progress the Open Source debate in the OpenStack community since 2011.
By using OpenStack, NEC will realize "Open Innovation for Social Value Creation".

NEC is the Headline Sponsor for OpenStack Summit Tokyo 2015 and will involve the keynote, several sessions, exhibition and open seminars at the booth. Please join us!


OCTOBER 27-30, 2015
Grand Prince International Convention Center & Hotels (Takanawa, Minato-ku)

Keynote

NEC will make a keynote speech.

Tuesday, October 27th 9:50-10:00

Tsugikazu Shibata, Board Member, OpenStack Foundation from NEC Open Source Promotion Center, NEC

Title Bringing the new value to OpenStack ecosystem
Abstract OpenStack comes a way of 5 years. Huge number of developers are gathering for OpenStack development community and lots of great work is contributing to the community. A lot of hardware equipment is able to attach to OpenStack, increasing OpenStack ready distributions. The number of Super Users show us new use cases in every Summits OpenStack is rapidly growing in the variety of parts of ecosystem.
Tsugikazu Shibata, will talk about further steps to expand OpenStack ecosystem and the future.
Bio Tsugikazu SHIBATA is on the Board of Directors of OpenStack Foundation and a Gold Member representing NEC. He has a senior role of partner relationship for Open Source as a member of Open Source Promotion Center of NEC. He is working for OpenStack since 2011. He is also on the Board of Directors of Linux Foundation and has over a decade of activity for the Linux community. He has advocated for Open Source developers from Japan and Asia for many years.

NEC Breakout Speaking Track

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday.

11:15-11:55
OpenStack as Infrastructure of Telco NFV

Gerald Kunzmann, DOCOMO Communication Laboratories Europe / Ryota Mibu, NEC

OpenStack is a shared asset for infrastructure of various industries in the huge community. Telco came up with Network Function Virtualization (NFV) concept to OpenStack. Its specific use cases and requirements are being elaborated to sharable features by efforts in OpenStack and Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) which is a new OSS project started a year ago. In this talk, you can get the trend of collaboration between OpenStack and OPNFV with an example activity.

12:05-12:45
Cloudifying Virtualized Customer Premises Equipment: The Next Step Towards Operationalization

Mark Bieberichya, Senior Director, Strategy of NetCracker Technologies

In proof of concept trials, service providers and vendor partners have proven they can virtualize key vCPE network functions. However, virtualization alone is only a first step towards creating and operationalizing a true platform for revenue growth from value-added content and applications. Bringing residential and business vCPE to the cloud is the essential next step. In this presentation NEC/NetCracker will demonstrate the path from virtualization to cloudification, leveraging practical experience in operationalizing vCPE to bring new services to market.

14:00-14:40
OpenStack "traps" of developments and use-cases (Lightning Talks)

Yuji Azama / Ghanshyam Mann / Yuiko Takada / Hidekazu Nakamura / Motohiro Otsuka / Masayuki Igawa

NEC's developers and operators will talk you about "traps" of not only OpenStack development but also experiment of our cloud construction and operation.

14:50-15:30
NEC Cloud System: NEC SDN Virtual Data Center Solution

Toshifumi Uesaka, Executive Strategic Specialist, SDN Business development division, Telecom Carrier Business Unit, NEC

NEC's virtualized data center/NFV solution provides an open IaaS platform based on OpenStack and external OSSs such as Zabbix, ELK, OpenDaylight, etc. This solution is designed to avoid vender lock-in by contributing codes which is needed to satisfy individual customer's requirements. In this talk, we will share some lessons learned to integrate various OSSs as building blocks.

15:40-16:30
OpenStack as a Resource-disaggregated Platform Controller

Shinji Abe, Product Architect, IT Platform Division, NEC / Masahiko Takahashi, Principal Research Engineer, Green Platform Research Laboratories, NEC / Kouhei Kaigai, Lead of the PG-Strom Project, NEC

Resource-disaggregated platform can realize IO resource (device) nodes separation from compute nodes at some distance and dynamic reconfiguration of their connectivity. In this talk, we first introduce ExpEther technology which achieves resource-disaggregated architecture.
Resource management using OpenStack Ironic is a key component for reconfiguring logical connectivity between compute nodes and target resources (NIC, SSD, GPGPU, etc.).
Finally, PostgreSQL acceleration on GPGPU (called "PG-Strom") is presented as a use-case of reconfiguration of resource-disaggregated platform.

16:40-17:20
What are operators doing behind the Cloud ? (NEC and NTT DOCOMO)

Ken Igarashi, Sr. Research Engineer, NTT DOCOMO / Jun Ishii, Research Engineer, NTT DOCOMO /Takashi Torii, NEC

In the session, we talk about Cloud operator's work behind the real OpenStack Cloud system that jointly developed with NEC and NTT DOCOMO. The operators of OpenStack Cloud face warnings or error messages in daily, so it is important how to automate these daily tasks. We have been organized the knowledge base, that includes the reason of warning/error messages, and how to deal with them. In the session, we introduce the architecture and design of our OpenStack Cloud system, and how to operate.  In addition, by using the knowledge base, we have developed new training material for operators. That will be the first practical training for industry-ready operator of OpenStack.

17:30-18:10
Converged System Solution Based on OpenStack and Ceph

Satoshi Yamakawa / Atsushi Tsuji, NEC

OpenStack and Ceph are one of the best combination to build cloud infrastructures. In this session, NEC engineers will introduce Cloud platform for IaaS(CPI), converged system based on OpenStack and Ceph. CPI is a turn-key solution for deploying IaaS platform simply and scaling out system on demand from customers.

Exhibition

We are going to display several solutions at the NEC booth

  1. OSS-based Cloud Infrastructure Solution: NEC Cloud System
    We introduce the NEC Cloud System (OSS Building Model), a solution that supports the building and operation of OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure. The new solution combines open standard technologies such as OpenStack and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) with NEC's technologies for building mission critical systems.
    It provides telecommunications carriers, data center operators, and IT departments with a cloud infrastructure featuring high reliability and scalability.
  2. Micro Modular Server and BigData Solution on Cloud
    We exhibit Micro Modular Server which is the most suitable as a Cloud/in-memory processing hardware and in-memory Big Data analysis by Apache Spark on OpenStack bare metal function. As an example of analysis processing of Apache Spark, we demonstrate machine learning application and exhibit collaboration solution of cloud and Big Data.
  3. Orchestrating Resource-disaggregated Architecture with ExpEther by OpenStack
    Depending on I/O load of compute nodes, OpenStack Ironic flexibly controls Resource-disaggregated Architecture which uses ExpEther for I/O device pool (PCI-express devices, such as NIC, SSD, or GPGPU) and dynamic attach/removal of devices to/from the compute nodes.
  4. What are operators doing behind the Cloud ? (NEC and NTT DOCOMO)
    In the booth, we introduce about Cloud operator's work behind the real OpenStack Cloud system that jointly developed with NEC and NTT DOCOMO. The operators of OpenStack Cloud face warnings or error messages in daily, so it is important how to automate these daily tasks. We have been organized the knowledge base, that includes the reason of warning/error messages, and how to deal with them. In the booth, we introduce the architecture and design of our OpenStack Cloud system, and how to operate.
