Intel is proud to be a headline sponsor at this year's OpenStack* Summit in Vancouver, British Columbia, May 21-24, 2018! Please come visit us at booth #B8! 

At OpenStack Summit you can join the people building and operating open infrastructure, with over 200+ sessions and workshops on Container Infrastructure, CI/CD, Telecom + NFV, Public Cloud, Private & Hybrid Cloud. This is a uniqe opportunity for members of open source communities to meet, exchange ideas, and collaborate with each other. The Summit includes in-depth technical discussions, hands-on workshops, and case studies from a diverse set of technologies, industries and geographies. 

Intel @ OpenStack Summit

  • We look forward to seeing you in our booth (#B8) located at the Marketplace, Level One, Ballroom C/D for inspiring demos and special giveaways.
  • Join on Monday @ 10:00AM for the keynote, Open Source on the Edge, from Imad Sousou, Corporate Vice President in the Software and Services Group at Intel Corporation and General Manager of the Intel Open Source Technology Center
  • Akraino 1/2 Day Workshop, Tuesday, 9:00AM - 12:30PM! Interested in learning more about the Akraino Edge Stack? It's the new Linux Foundation open source project. RSVP is required. 
  • Come see one or more of our 21 sessions (listed below). 

Attn: Women of OpenStack!

Come join us on Monday at 12:15pm in Level Two, Room 215, for the Women of OpenStack Speed Mentoring Lunch, sponsored by Intel! If you're new to OpenStack or in want of some mentoring, this session is a great icebreaker and a way to get know new and experienced people in the OpenStack community. The session will be divided between career, technical and community mentoring. Mentees will be organized into small groups and each group will have several 15 minute mentoring sessions. In your small group, you'll get to know a bit about a mentor and have an opportunity to ask them a question or two about how you can grow your career, get involved in the community, and make the most of the summit. Then, at the end of 15 minutes, a new mentor will cycle to your group and the process will repeat.


Kata Containers  and OpenStack Zun Kata containers is the convergence of Intel Clear Containers and Hyper RunV for an industry standard solution to virtualizing container workloads. This demo is an early preview of OpenStack Zun launching and managing Kata container workloads. Users will be shown both the CLI for Zun and GUI launching and interacting with Kata containers.
Automate your performance testing with Network Services Benchmarking The Network Services Benchmarking project is a test framework for measuring the performance for VNFs and NFVi. It allows the user to automate benchmarking tasks. It provides a configurable framework to characterise a wide range of workloads, and also provides facilities for benchmarking your NFVi. We will demonstrate Network Services Benchmarking in an OpenStack context to show how you can characterise VNFs running in your OpenStack cloud. We will demonstrate the flexibility of NSB in characterising different VNFs in different clouds, to give the reproducible performance benchmarks. This demo will show: - PROX, and how it can be used to create VNFs. - Different test cases being run - KPI collection and reporting for network, NFVi and VNF metrics and a configurable dashboard (adding additional graphs). NSB is a combination of a number of open source components including OPNFV Yardstick, OPNFV Barometer, OPNFV SampleVNFs, OpenStack, Open vSwitch, DPDK and collectd.
99Cloud Animbus®, OpenStack and Intel® Rack Scale Design: Next Generation Hyperscale Infrastructure Intel® Rack Scale Design (Intel® RSD) is an industry-wide architecture for disaggregated, composable infrastructure. Together with 99Cloud, a valued Intel RSD ecosystem partner, this demo will show how 99Cloud Animbus for OpenStack leverages native functions of an Intel RSD compliant system – like demand driven composability – to deliver greater agility and performance at a lower cost.
1. OpenStack Enhanced Platform Awareness with Traits
2. OpenStack Orchestrated Quality of Service with Intel(r) RDT
1. This demo showcases how Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) can enhance OpenStack Cloud capabilities by incorporating key Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor platform features that deliver unparalleled performance and manageability for OpenStack clusters. We will show how OpenStack Traits enhance platform capabilities for ideal workload placement for cryptographic hashing and encryption workloads and scheduling for advanced power optimization.

2. Now you have a new tool to assist in silencing noisy and preventing them from impacting the high priority VMs in your OpenStack managed cloud. By defining service level VM flavors in OpenStack, Intel neighbors Resource Director Technology (RDT) can control the Last Level Cache allocation and monitor the memory bandwidth usage of each thread, guaranteeing priority workloads are not impacted by misbehaving neighboring VMs. Additionally, OpenStack can redistribute workloads based on Intel® RDT monitoring metrics. This demo will show how to use an OpenStack managed cloud of Intel® Xeon® E5 2600 v4 systems in conjunction with example web, network (OVS+DPDK), and KVMGT video transcoding workloads to guarantee quality of service.
Workload-driven Storage Scaling in OpenStack with Intel® Rack Scale Design This demo shows how OpenStack could be adapted to allow a workload (a Nova compute VM) to request Cinder capacity residing on NVMe-over-Fabrics (NVMe-oF) storage. Intel Rack Scale Design is used to attach an NVMe-oF volume to a Cinder node detached when the VM shuts down. The demo will also show performance results for NVMe-oF compared to local drives and will showcase network and storage telemetry.
Ceph Tracing An open source distributed tracing tool to pinpoint Ceph bottleneck out of cluster behavior mists by visual and interactive frontend. What matters?  Not all costs matter, the request’s main costs matter. Back-trace from response point to collect main cost. What is performance?  Focus on performance of parallel requests and represent throughput and latencies. How to improve it? Identify bottleneck root causes and incremental analysis by interactive frontend.
Akraino  Akraino Edge Stack, is a new open source community creating an open source software stack to improve the state of edge cloud infrastructure for carrier, provider, and IoT networks. To seed the new project, Intel has contributed source code for major components of its Wind River® Titanium Cloud portfolio of technologies and the Intel® Network Edge Virtualization Software Development Kit (Intel® NEV SDK). Akraino Edge Stack will offer users new levels of flexibility to scale edge cloud services quickly, to maximize the applications or subscribers supported on each server, and to help ensure the reliability of systems that must be up at all times. This demo showcases features and capabilities of the Intel seed code.
Multi-function Accelerator using Intel® FPGA Objective: Demonstrate Dynamic Workload Switching Demonstrated on Xeon® with Integrated FPGA

• Business objective alignment: The demo is important for Intel because, the workload that typically run on datacenter is very diverse and increasingly demands customization.  FPGAs are inherently parallel, making them purpose-built for the new world of compute. Importantly, they offer high performance in terms of throughput, execution speed and energy efficiency.
• Key message addressed: The reprogrammable FPGA WL’s can be dynamically switched in milliseconds, benefitting the data center with new services, higher perf/w and higher performance . FPGAs support a broad set of workloads that can be used across the data center – network, server and storage.
• Importance to end user: the workload switching demonstrates to the customer that Intel is providing the customer with a choice.
• Next best action/asset after viewing demo: Direct customers to Acceleration Hub for more information
• Hardware/software used: HP workstation; Rush creek card; Monitor ; Keyboard; Mouse; Standard power, and no ethernet connection needed. Acceleration Stack for Intel Xeon CPU with FPGAs (with Open Programmable Acceleration Engine). OS: CentOS 6.8
• Unique benefit from using Intel technology: Software acceleration of different workloads
