Cloud Applications - QA and Testing
Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC)

Cloud computing has become a big topic in the IT industry. Bolstered by inexpensive, available platforms, tools and support, more and more business are seeing the advantages and moving applications to "cloud” environments. As this transformation takes place, how does it change the way QA / Testing professionals approach verifying and validating that applications meet functional and non-functional requirements? What should QA be looking for in terms of performance, integration and security? What kinds and amount of testing will vendors be looking for before they accept an application into their environment? How much and what kind of testing will the hosting vendor perform before they allow an application to go "live”.

In this event a panel of experts from different companies focusing on cloud applications, will provide their perspectives and discuss questions and views posed by the attendees. This will be an interactive discussion – taking a deep dive into the topic and providing a forum for attendees and speakers to share insights and experiences. The intention is to raise awareness and knowledge and provide attendees an understanding of the key issues and approaches when their company considers moving applications to a cloud-based environment.

Bring your questions and/or experiences and be prepared for a great event.

PLUG: The Ganeti Virtualization Management System
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Lance Albertson of the Oregon State University Open Source Lab will give an introduction to the Ganeti Virtualization Management System.

Ganeti is a robust cluster virtualization management software tool. It’s built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen and KVM and other Open Source software. Its integration with various technologies such as DRBD and LVM results in a cheaper High Availability infrastructure and linear scaling.

This hands-on tutorial will cover a basic overview of Ganeti, the step-by-step install & setup of a single-node and multi-node Ganeti cluster, operating the cluster, and some best practices of Ganeti. Finally, deploying and using a web-based management tool called Ganeti Web Manager.

If you want to participate on the hands-on portion of the talk, feel free to clone his vagrant-ganeti repo on github (https://github.com/ramereth/vagrant-ganeti) prior to the meeting. We'll try and have the box images available on USB drives at the meeting but its always great to have everything setup prior to the meeting and not saturate the wifi.

Lance is the Associate Director of Operations for the Oregon State University Open Source Lab (OSL) and a Gentoo Linux Developer. He joined the Gentoo Linux project in 2003 and have been involved in managing their infrastructure and maintaining about a dozen or so packages in portage. Lance directs all of the hosting and development activities that the OSL provides for the open source community including projects such as Kernel.org, Drupal, Apache Software Foundation, and many many more. Lance has been at the OSL since 2007.

Portland Linux/Unix Group: systemd
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Portland Linux/Unix Group Meeting

It's a little known secret that systemd is extremely capable of starting, controlling and regulating more than just system services, but can easily start an entire Desktop UI. Not many people have sat down and implemented and worked out the problems of starting an X service, a few UI components, the session bus and DBus services for normal users with the mechanisms that systemd provides.

The benefits are obvious: Systemd provides excellent service monitoring and restarting capabilities, provides socket and DBus activation for relevant services, and overall improves desktop startup by allowing user services to start well before core services like Xorg or wayland start. In effect, we're saying goodbye to XDG autostart entirely, and getting back reliability and scalability.

We converted several desktop environments including Tizen's Mobile UI, Xfce4, Enlightenment and more to systemd user sessions. We "pop the hood" and take a look at the implications for startup, what's possible to further improve on the session startup and where we can do better.

Auke Kok is a software engineer at Intel's Open Source Technology Center, and has been attempting to make Linux boot faster since 2007. In 2008, he co-presented the "5-second boot" with Arjan van de Ven at the first LPC. Since then, Auke has worked on further improving the Linux Core OS start sequence, first for Moblin and later with MeeGo, where we made the first switch to systemd. Auke now works on Tizen, which will heavily integrate systemd in the Core OS.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Vyatta
Free Geek

Linux has been used for network routing for many years, but the interface is different than the standard network appliances. Vyatta is a Debian based distribution that provides an open command line interface that looks like Cisco or Juniper. The command line is built on top of standard bash shell with extensible template language.

This talk will go into the history of Vyatta, where it came from and how it is used today. For those who want to contribute or modify, it will also cover the internals of how this implemented.

Stephen Hemminger is a software engineer working remotely in Portland for Vyatta. He has been involved with Linux networking for 8 years and currently maintains bridging and routing utilities. Steve regularly presents at Linux conferences.

Many will break for the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne afterwards.

Portland Linux/Unix Group: UEFI Secure Boot and Open Source
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

UEFI Secure Boot and Open Source. It's not a 'general war against computation' by Vincent Zimmer, Intel

As 2012 platform firmware embraces UEFI 2.3.1 and ACPI5.0 support, the ability to interoperate with UEFI Secure Boot is imperative. This poses a unique challenge for open software that may not come pre-installed on the platform. With UEFI Secure Boot, though, infrastructure has been put in place to preserve openness, owner choice and control in addition to mitigating concerns of malware targeting the platform. This talk will provide a history of UEFI Secure Boot, an overview of the implementation, deployment practices, and details on the engagement with the open source community.

Vincent Zimmer is a Principal Engineer with Intel Corporation. He has been working on various platform, networking, trusted computing and security technologies around EFI since 1999 and platform firmware since 1992. Vincent has spoken in various forums on this topic, co-authored 3 books, 10 papers, and several specifications in this area.

Many will break for refreshments at the Lucky Lab NW at 1945 NW Quimby after the meeting

The Portland Linux/Unix Group (PLUG) is a group of enthusiasts dedicated to teaching and learning about Linux, Unix and related projects. There is no membership fee to join and we welcome people of all levels of experience.

Four F.U.D.s of the Cloud
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

Cloud computing has quickly evolved from marketing terminology and buzzwords to a valuable and often vital way to conduct business and deliver services. With the rapid rate of cloud adoption and the constant change in the industry, it can be confusing to sift through all the information and get to the facts. Join us as we discuss “The Top Four FUDs of the Cloud” in a fun pub environment.

The Four FUD Topics and Presenters Are:

Differences in Service Delivery (SaaS and on Premise Solutions) --Jorge Zelaya, VP of Client Services at EasyStreet will discuss integrated vs. customized, the importance of renewals (B4B vs. B2B) and the focus on strategy and business outcomes.

Security and Compliance -- Adam Shnider, Managing Director, NW Coalfire Systems will discuss SSAE16, HIPPA, PCI, etc. and what customers expect from cloud vendors from a compliance support standpoint, customer requirements, and the minimum requirements everyone should have, and how not all cloud providers and services are created equal.

Financial Impacts -- Chris Wheaton, VP of Services at Jive Software will discuss services revenue models and how they differ from being subscription based vs. traditional license and maintenance. He will also discuss how to generate incremental services revenue when there is no longer a defined maintenance revenue stream.

Success Stories – Adam Lynch, Founder and Director of Product Development, Hubbub Health will share success stories despite all the F.U.D!

The speakers will then host a now classic Reddit-style AMA (Ask Me Anything) session after their presentations, giving attendees a chance to ask questions and add to what’s sure to be a lively discussion.

This event will be moderated by Claire Hernandez, VP of Client Services, HealthSparq.

Who Should Attend •Decision makers searching to find how cloud fits with their business

•Those managing or subscribing to existing cloud based services

OpenStack PDX User Group April meeting
Puppet

Our first official meeting with the new user group includes something for everyone! For those new to OpenStack we'll have an intro-level presentation from HP's Spencer Krum, after which we'll get into the (API) weeds with Bernard Sanders from CloudBolt Software

Using OpenStack Nova (Spencer Krum)

In this brief talk I will talk about how I use an OpenStack cloud (HP Cloud) to boot up virtual machines for interactive testing. This workflow has replaced vagrant in my life. I will show a script I made called 'hodor' to boot vms and log into them. This is targeted at the absolute beginner and will be very basic.

Spencer Krum is an OpenStack hacker working for HP. He coordinates the PdxDevOps user group and is active in the puppet community.

Hybrid cloud and catalyzing OpenStack adoption (Bernard Sanders)

It's tough to convince people to put all their eggs in one basket, and that reluctance keeps some folks from going all-in on building an OpenStack cloud. Until they're ready, solutions providing easy access to multiple clouds can smooth that transition. Bernard Sanders (CTO at CloudBolt Software) joins us to talk about how their cloud management platform interfaces with OpenStack, and the good, bad and ugly of integrating with one of the fastest growing open source projects in history.

Prior to CloudBolt, Bernard has worked for NASA/JPL, Loudcloud, Opsware, HP, holding roles in development, systems engineering, and product management. He's a puzzle/game enthusiast, a juggler, a nordic skier, and an ex-quadrapeligic. He will answer questions about automation, riccochet robots, crater lake, spinal cord injury, and maybe even OpenStack.

PdxDevOps
New Relic

Join us for the June meeting of PdxDevOps.

Agenda:

Speaker: Chris Roberts

Topic: SparkleFormation and orchestration APIs

Summary: SparkleFormation is a Ruby based DSL to programmatically build templates for cloud orchestration APIs. It even has a companion CLI tool for interacting with remote providers. This talk will give a brief history on how SparkleFormation came into existence, its evolution to becoming the library and application it is today, and an overview of the things possible with SparkleFormation. Once a common foundation has been laid, we'll dive in a bit deeper to examine some non-trivial use cases touching on nesting, graphing, planning, cross provider support/interactions (AWS CFN isn't the only rodeo in town), integrating Serverspec via callbacks, and how sparkle packs can delegate infrastructure composition across teams. If there's still time and interest after all this, we can touch on why CFN is currently the best orchestration API, why CFN sucks, what's great and horrible about other orchestration APIs, why you should have an "infrastructure repository", the absurdity of humans composing documents in serialization formats, and anything else people want to talk about.

Speaker: Eric Maxwell

Summary: Eric will take us through chef's new offering: Habitat. Habitat is written in rust. Habitat is a new approach to automation that focuses on the application instead of the infrastructure it runs on. With Habitat, the apps you build, deploy, and manage behave consistently in any runtime — metal, VMs, containers, and PaaS. You'll spend less time on the environment and more time building features.

Beers with Engineers
10 Barrel

A monthly gathering for Portland area tech junkies. More specifically, those focused on data, emerging technology, and general IT topics. Industry vets, IT pros, nerds, geeks, tech philosoraptors, whatever.... Whether 5 or 50 this is an awesome opportunity to get together and talk shop, learn from peers, or just have some beers and a good time.

No management, No selling, No recruiting, No problems. Talking to people about your product(s) or career networking is fine but people "leeching" on the attendance isn't cool so don't do it. Industry folks with expense cards typically cover festivities but this isn't a "sponsored" event and we don't intend to turn BwE into "powerpoint parties". Venue will be dynamic alternating between locations and if group size demands we'll book a location to support.

If you're new to the group or haven't been out in a while we're a pretty dynamic crowd and always have a lot of fun.

Cloud Document Storage @DAMAPDX
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Presented by David Howell CEO of Avatron

In 2013, the “Summer of Snowden” heightened awareness among businesses and individuals of the insecurity of data stored in the cloud. Despite that, people still routinely use Google Docs, whose corporate owner promises to sell private data to its customers, the advertisers. People still store sensitive data in the cloud, where data breaches are virtually inevitable. Avatron launched Air Connect, an alternative approach to allowing access of personal data from anywhere. Like Skype, Air Connect employs UDP tunneling to forge a direct connection to a remote computer, even if it is behind a stringent firewall or on a dynamic IP address. We’ll walk through the architecture of Air Connect, discussing design decisions made along the way. We’ll talk through the joys and woes of launching a geeky networking software service on Kickstarter. And we’ll talk about the ultimate demise of the Air Connect service.

Speaker

Dave Howell is CEO of Avatron, a popular mobile app developer. Avatron’s apps include Air Sharing, the first iPhone app that allowed management, viewing, and printing of local and remote documents, Air Connect, which lets people connect directly and securely to a personal computer without sending data through the cloud, and Air Display, which turns a tablet into a computer monitor. Before founding Avatron in 2008, Dave was a senior software manager at Apple, where he contributed to productivity software and professional applications. Dave joined Apple when the computer company bought the assets of his previous company, Pablo Media. When he’s not leading software teams, Dave plays piano in a jazz quartet in Portland. On Twitter, you can follow Dave at @dshowell or Avatron at @avatron.

CNPDX and OpenStack May: Kubernetes + Openstack
New Relic

Red Hat's Ben Kero will be talking about deploying a Kubernetes cluster on your own OpenStack cloud or a public cloud, then using OpenStack's load balancer resources to handle your app's ingress traffic. Given time and inclination he might also talk about creating an OpenStack-Kubernetes sandwich (Tur-cloud-en).

CNPDX June: VMs and Runtimes with Kubernetes
Cloudability

Our June meetup is scheduled at CloudAbilty! Please RSVP on Meetup.com for an accurate headcount, if you can.

Josh Berkus of Red Hat will present:

"CRI-O, a runtime for Kubernetes"

While most people use Kubernetes with Docker, it's not limited to using just Docker. Josh will demo CRI-O, a minimal container runtime designed for meeting Kubernetes' container needs ... and no more.

Then, for our feature presentation Eric Ernst of Intel will present:

"Using OVS-DPDK, VPP and SRIO-V with Clear Containers"

Using OVS-DPDK, VPP and SRIO-V with Clear Containers Clear Containers is an Open Containers Initiative (OCI) “runtime” that launches an Intel VT-x secured hypervisor rather than a standard Linux container. A brief introduction of Clear Containers will be provided, followed by an overview of CNM networking plugins which have been created to enhance network connectivity using Clear Containers. More specifically, we will give an overview of DPDK, OVS, VPP and SRIO-V, followed by demonstrations of using OVS-DPDK, VPP and SRIO-v based networks to connect Clear Containers.

CNPDX July: Bear Metal, Bare ARMs and Kubernetes Anniversary
World Trade Center

First, Happy Kubernetes Birthday! This will be our Kube Birthday meetup, so we'll have cake.

We'll also be having a "installing/running Kubernetes on Bare Metal" extravaganza. This will include:

  • Ryan Moe of IBM talking about running Kubernetes on his Raspberry Pi Cluster;

  • An ARM64 box from the ARM consortium, set up for testing Kube on ARM64

  • Josh Berkus's x86 Microcluster, and a demo for installing kubeadm in containers

If you have semi-portable hardware to install Kubernetes on, with any architecture, please let us know in the comments and bring it along.

Please RSVP on meetup.com if you are able to.
