Operators, welcome to Austin!
I’m delighted to describe some of the exciting activities that you can participate in this week. That’s right – the whole week has something for you 🙂
We start on Monday with the flagship event the Ops Summit.
The Ops Summit is a day comprised of collaborative working sessions for people who are operating OpenStack clouds (and the contributors who want to hear from them.) The purpose is to share knowledge and best practices among cloud operators, as well as provide feedback based on experience running OpenStack. There are no formal presentations and a moderate level of knowledge around running OpenStack is assumed.
We’ll be discussing what went well in Liberty and Mitaka (and upgrades), working out what should go in a new version of the OpenStack Operations Guide, and getting deep into running containers on OpenStack and OpenStack on containers.
The working groups, like the Large Deployments Team, OSOps, Ops Tags Team and the Scientific Working Group will be having their working sessions, as well as an important meeting for non-ATC recognition.
As usual, there’ll be the lightning talks aimed at sharing architectures and interesting deployment tips.
Beyond Monday, there are a number of Fishbowl and Working sessions in which to participate. Here’s a quick list:
●Large Deployment Team
●Designate: Talk to the Devs
●Horizon: Operator / Plugin Feedback
●Swift: Ops Feedback
●Neutron: User feedback track: health checking and troubleshooting
●Neutron: User feedback track: end user and operator pain points
After the successful impromptu informal meetup in Tokyo, we will have a room reserved on Friday for unstructured discussions from 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Turn up to Salon E and see what happens.
Make sure to stick around for the Summit feedback and Community Contributor Awards session on Friday lunch!
