The schedule for the 2020 Open Infrastructure Summit, released today, features keynotes and sessions from users like Volvo Cars Corporation, Workday, Société Générale and Ant Group. The event, held virtually for the first time, takes place October 19-23 and includes more than 100 sessions around infrastructure use cases like cloud computing, edge computing, hardware enablement, and security.
Thousands of attendees are expected to participate, representing 30+ open source communities and more than 100 countries. Keynotes begin at 10am CT on Monday, October 19 and again on Tuesday, October 20.
Sessions for the Summit focus on the most important open infrastructure issues and challenges facing global organizations:
- AI / Machine Learning, HPC
- Container Infrastructure
- NFV and Edge Computing
- Cloud Computing: Public, Private and Hybrid
A critical feature of Open Infrastructure Summit sessions is the collaboration among numerous open source communities, including Airship, Ansible, Ceph, Docker, Kata Containers, Kubernetes, ONAP, OpenStack, Open vSwitch, OPNFV, StarlingX, Zuul and many more. Speaking sessions at the Summit are led by users from global enterprises and research institutions building and operating open infrastructure at scale:
- Volvo Cars Corporation will reveal how it successfully uses Zuul for continuous integration in a range of different software components, and how Zuul is a game changer that helps them avoid merging broken code. As its team is now working with autonomous driving software in an NVIDIA central car computer, Volvo will share why it relies on cross repo dependencies and the speculative merge feature in their gates, dramatically reducing queues.
- Ant Group, the leading peer-to-peer payments processor in China, will talk about how they had thousands of tasks scheduled and running in Kata Containers. Some of those tasks are sensitive to resources and response time, so they will present why other isolation methods, such as scheduling isolation and LLC isolation, are used in combination with Kata Containers.
- GE Digital will present the tools, describe the migration procedure, and highlight the biggest challenges in upgrading from OpenStack Newton to Queens with minimal downtime.
- Learn how Société Générale, one of the top three French banks with a net banking income of 24.7 billion euros, is leveraging Kolla-Ansible using Neutron routed provider network feature. They are also using the new capability in Glance to import an image into multiple stores in order to provide cloud services in multiple availability zones using a single OpenStack deployment.
- China Mobile will showcase the automated hardware integration system it built for its NFV cloud project and explain how 50,000 servers have been implemented with plug-and-play.
- The European Weather Cloud, a joint project between ECMWF and EUMETSAT, is creating an on-site private cloud infrastructure on which Member and Co‐operating States(~34 states) are able to create virtual resources on demand to gain access to the Centre’s NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) products and infrastructure (HPC) in a timely and configurable fashion. The ECMWF’s infrastructure is based 100% on open source software: OpenStack (Ussuri) and Ceph (Nautilus).
- Workday is back at the Summit, this time with more than 400k cores in production and a story about its OpenStack footprint with 7K hypervisors distributed over 25 clusters. These numbers are projected to grow over 10K hypervisors by the end of 2020.
- China Tower has a million generator rooms covering China, which is especially suitable for customers with large-scale resource needs. China Tower starts with the CDN business, uses Intel x86 servers as hardware and StarlingX to isolate different CDN vendors, and provides virtual resources to CDN vendors to conveniently manage edge cloud resources on the central cloud.
