During this talk you will learn our findings after using Heat and OpenStack in our own cloud in production over the past several years and find out how you can use OpenStack, Heat, (and Ceph) to offer your users the ability to create complex, reproducible, extendible, clustered infrastructures, in minutes, at a push of a button.

At Bright we call this approach Cluster-as-a-Service and we happen to use it for offering our users self-managed and fully monitored virtualized services like Hadoop, Spark, OpenStack, HPC, all in Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) manner. You can use this, or a similar, approach as well for offering whatever you want to deliver any distributed (or not) software to your own users.

In the talk we gathered interesting findings and best practices in using Heat at scale, our OpenStack cloud architecture, answers to why Ceph is a great match for Heat, cloud-init, clusters, and clustered infrastructures, as well as comparison with OpenStack Senlin.

The session will be a good blend of high level information combined with various useful to know technical details which we’ve learned the hard way, so that you don’t have to.
