Meet at the Open Source Summit NA 2017

2017/06/26

Despite difficult times for HPE, I’m still supported by my management to continue to represent HPE during tier 1 Open Source events such as the Open Source Summit North America, held in Los Angeles from the 11th to the 14th of September. Well, of course, because I was accepted as a speaker again !

I’ll lead a round table to cover with panelists whether “Containers are the future of IaaS ?

So as usual, if you are around, I’ll happy to discuss with you around Open Source in general, and the projects I’m involved with in particular such as MondoRescue (yes, there will be a new version soon, now remains to see the definition of soon), project-builder.org (same thing), Redfish, containers, early music or more.

It’s time again for me to prepare the HPE TSS designed for our presales and channel partners, with some of our the best experts to transfer knowledge on everything HPE !

We have again this year a track dedicated to Open Source and Linux !).

So I’ll be in Cannes from the 6th to the 10th of February to cover:

  • B90 HPE’s Open Source Strategy – Auditorium K – Tuesday 7th of February 2017 – 5:30PM-6:20PM
  • L30-R1 Docker 101 Tutorial – Lab 1 – Wednesday 8th of February 2017 – 8:30AM-10:20AM

Pretty busy week no ?! And you should be able to replay the labs/tutorials on Wednesday afternoon during the OpenLab session in Lab 1.

A lot of sessions are covering Docker related topics this year, and I’m happy with thatas it’s a great techno, even more with the recently announced 1.13 bringing service support to docker-compose !

For those of you wondering why project-builder.org and MondoRescue versions are not published more regularly, that gives you again a hint 😉 Not speaking of the travel for 2 weeks starting the week after this one, and the next event in March in Grenoble, TES, where I’m part of the Event team and that we’ll organize for the 8th time.

See you there to talk of these subjects or something else as you see fit. I’m around the whole week.

Meet at the Paris Open Source Summit

2016/11/16

Ok, you see, I’m late ! Not only in producing new versions of software but also to make this type of single announce 😦 But it’s cloudy these days, that may explain that;-) So after having presented during the DACH OpenStack day in Berlin, I’m today (!) leading again this year the Cloud track at the Paris Open Source Summit with great speakers such as Christophe Sauthier (Objectif Libre) who won a POSS award yesterday, Bruno Gillet (Red Hat) who had already a session last year and Julien Corioland and Pascal Sauliere (Microsoft) whom I’m curious to hear about MS’ FLOSS strategy !

So come in Room Grèce at 1:30PM if you want to follow that 2 hour session. Or tomorrow in the main conference room at 11:35AM as I’ll animate a round table around OpenStack Coopetition with again Christophe Sauthier (Objectif Libre) (not just because he won a price, because he has interesting stuff to share about leading CloudKitty !), Patrick Petit (Mirantis), who knows a lot on integration work on OpenStack, and Julien Niedergang (SUSE) who is at the heart of a downstream distribution work with OpenStack.

And last but not least, If you haven’t attended live (you should have!) the keynote of Axelle Lemaire, delegate ministery for Digital in France, sponsor of the event, please do so (as soon as it’s available) as since the creation of all these events in France back in 1998, this is by far the best one. Energizing, visionnary, balanced, with a very dynamic expression, contrary to most years, nobody was sleeping in the room ! Kudos to Benjamin Jean, Jean-Christophe Elineau ad the team for getting her on stage, as I suppose it’s not an easy task, but we need more of such talented speakers. And she contributes to make +1 for women in the men/women balance in that event, which is an additional nice point.

Meet during the upcoming OpenStack Summit in Barcelona

2016/10/12

For the first time, I’ll be speaking at the OpenStack Summit during the main conference.

I’ll talk about the possibility to add Redfish support to Ironic.

I’ve already talked about Redfish, either the standard, or through our python-redfish module, even during a vBrownBag session of a previous Summit in Vancouver.

This time I’d like to detail the latest news around the standard itself, how it can be used in an Ironic context and what we’ll have to do to make it work, up to its usage for Alexandria, a CMDB as a service solution we’re also developing in conjunction with these components.

I’ll also attend most of the Ironic dev round table to organize that work, and understand better what the community is expecting from us with regards to the development, and answer to the questions around the specification. Should be a very interesting week in Barcelona (on top of the fact Barcelona is a great city I encourage you to visit !)

Meet during LinuxCon EMEA

2016/09/23

After having talked on project-builder.org during the latest LinuxCon NA in Toronto, it’s now time to prepare for LinuxCon EMEA in Berlin.

I’l again talk about packaging, this time “Packaging for Linux Distributions with Docker“. And I’ll also replay the now popular (!) “101 Docker training” I’ve also delivered in Toronto, this time trying to deliver it before the one Jérome Patazzoni from Docker is doing on Docker orchestration, in order to allow for a complete overview of the Docker ecosystem.

Of course I’ll enjoy attending many sessions on various topics, and will see if in EMEA as well Docker Orchestration is the new Eldorado this year (In Toronto many talks and booth were dedicated to that theme). At least my colleague Mike Bright will cover it well !

See you around !

Project-Builder 0.14.1 is now out for LinuxConNA !

2016/08/19

Well, in fact I froze that version back in July, but didn’t officially announced it till today (vacations were just in the middle). So that version 0.14.1 is now available, it breaks compatibility with previous ones, so you’ll need to update your VMs/VEs with it as well if you want to use it correctly (that’s why it’s still version 0.x !)

But I’ve been able to build a lot using docker containers with that version, and I’m now more and more happy with these results. Especially because it’s easier to fully automate an environment from absolutely nothing except project-builder.org to working packages. I already described it when I released 0.13.1 last year through a short tutorial, but it’s really working reliably now for a large set of distributions:

But I’ve not really worked yet on the ideas expressed when I issued 0.13.2 in February this year.

Instead I’ve done other improvements such as managing signed deb repositories (was asked for a long time), have a better naming for temporary versions (allowing easier updates between temporary versions and also with stables, but creating the incompatibility with 0.13.x), docker tests for lots of distributions (paving the way for automatic testing here from nothing to package build), adding support for pbr, standardizing temporary directory names, …

That will be the version I’ll use to make demos during my presentation next week at LinuxCon North America in Toronto as already announced. Come to see it live and so that we can discuss continuous packaging !

OpenStack Summit proposals

2016/08/07

While I’m in vacation around Barcelone, I’ve made before leaving proposals for the upcoming OpenStack Summit which will be … in Barcelona !

If you think they are valuable for the OpenStack community, let them know by voting for them 😉 Here are they:

  • The nightmare of Ironic Standalone
  • Empowering Ironic with Redfish support
  • From Bare Metal to CMDB: ITIL as Code

The easiest way to vote is to go to https://www.openstack.org/summit/barcelona-2016/vote-for-speakers/ and search for cornec in the search area on the top left. You’ll just get these 3 ones. But of course there are tons of other interesting presentations proposed and as usual it will be difficult for these one to be selected. And you should really vote for the ones which are the most interesting.

Hopefully even if not selected I’ll be able to come back in this great place and meet again with peers after Paris and Vancouver but of course, it will be much more difficult without being a presenter. Let’s see !

Meet again next week in Paris and at LinuxCon NA 2016 in Toronto

2016/06/19

I’m just back from an HPE Event (the ETSS in Gothenburg, Sweden) and will soon have to start the next ones.

First, I’ll be this week in Paris to talk during a MySQL Meetup to cover automatic deployment, in particular with Redfish, images of reference (and a bit of MondoRescue) and automation (ansible e.g.) for DBA.

Then I’m again lucky this year to be retained as a speaker for the upcoming LinuxCon North America which will be in Toronto, Canada from the 22nd of August to the 27th. I’ll have a session on Continuous Packaging, mandatory for DevOps and a 3 hour Initiation Lab on Docker. Interestingly enough at the same time, Jérôme Petazzoni, Docker, will do one on Swarm !! Maybe we should coordinate and make them one after the other (I’d like to attend his Lab BTW !!)

I have now put all my lab material that I do for HPE on GitHub, to make it easier for attendees to report errors, and for others to use them and learn. I have content for Docker (Done with René Ribaud, Yann Allandit, Michael Bright), Git (Done with Clément Poulain), Redfish (Originally written by François Donzé and done with René Ribaud) and soon for Ironic.

Hope to be able to meet with you here or there !

In order to meet at the OpenStack Summit in Austin, vote for us !

2016/02/12

We’ve made 3 different but related proposals for the upcoming OpenStack Summit, and as everybody, we would like to be retained in order to disclose what we’re working on and think could improve the ecossytem.

Our first proposal is “Empowering Ironic with Redfish support” which aims at describing our plans to add Redfish support to Ironic.

The second, which would benefit greatly from the work of the first, is “Alexandria: The librarian bridging OpenStack and CMDBs” which is a nascent new component to allow easily with a plugin based architecture to bridge CMDBs (starting with the great Open Source iTop one) and OpenStack features such as bare-metal deployment with Ironic, managing also automatic inventory. Amitious but pretty useful in our opinion, of course to help manage our Datacenter, but the one of any OpenStack customer as well.

Finally, We’d like to present our overall view on how OpenSTack is at the heart of a Software Defined Infrastructure with our last presentation. This one targets more architects and decision makers, while the 2 others will be more technical and cover implementation details. All will have demos.

Hopefully, you’ll agree with me to find that these topics deserve being elected !! And thus vite for them 😉

In that case, I can just wish we’ll meet over there 🙂 !
