Deploying VMs and Containers across Infrastructure Providers

Presenting OpenNebula’s new Edge Cloud Architecture

Alejandro Huertas
<p>This talk presents OpenNebula's new distributed Edge Cloud Architecture, which is composed of Edge Clusters that can run any workload (both Virtual Machines and application containers), on any resource (bare-metal or virtualized), anywhere (on-prem and on a cloud/edge provider). An Edge Cluster, built on open source technologies that already exist in the Linux operating system, is a hyperconverged functional set of managed objects that include storage, network, and host resources. An Edge Cluster provides all the resources needed to run virtualized or containerized applications. OpenNebula’s management services, including scheduling, monitoring and life-cycle management, run in the cloud Front-end and orchestrate from there the local or remote Edge Clusters. The Front-end also provides access to the administration tools, user interfaces, and API. Although the requirements may vary depending on the number and size of the clusters and API load, the Front-end node only requires 8 GB of main memory and 4 cores. The Edge Cloud Architecture is able to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use storage platform for medium-sized clusters consisting of tens of nodes. OpenNebula’s Edge Cloud Architecture is able to manage hundreds of these clusters, as they operate autonomously in terms of networking and storage, and handle thousands of virtualized hosts and tens of thousands of virtualized applications. In this presentation we will explain in detail the deployment model for Edge Clusters, the specialized storage solution they incorporate (OneStor), and the performance benefits of this multi-cloud architecture as confirmed by the latest benchmarks.</p>

<p>The VIRTIO standard defines I/O devices that are commonly used in virtual machines today. The last version of the standard was released in 2019 and much has changed since then. This presentation covers new devices and features in the upcoming VIRTIO 1.2 standard.</p> <p>There are 9 new device types: fs, rpmb, iommu, sound, mem, i2c, scmi, gpio, and pmem. We will look at the functionality offered by these devices and their status in Linux.</p>

<p>CodeReady Containers runs an OpenShift cluster on a laptop or workstation using virtualization. It's written in go, and uses KVM, HyperV or HyperKit depending on the OS it's running on. External network access is done through gVisor's userland TCP/IP stack which the virtual machine uses over virtio-vsock.</p> <p>This talk will start with a short presentation of what CodeReady Containers is, explain why it needs a userland TCP/IP stack, but its main focus will be around virtio vsock, how to ...

<p>This talk presents ToroV, a novel open-source technology that combines virtualization and containerization to enable the execution of users’ applications in a safer and improved manner. In ToroV, applications run as Virtual Machines without the need of an OS, unikernel nor device-model. ToroV combines a minimalist Virtual Machine Monitor and a virtualized guest program communicating through POSIX APIs. When the guest application requires to open or write a file, it just invokes the VMM ...

<p>As the number of VMs per node gets larger, using more powerful nodes (i.e. with more CPUs and RAM), the scalability of Kubevirt's control plane becomes a bottleneck, slowing down the VMI creation process. This talk will cover the motivations and concepts around general benchmarking of the KubeVirt control plane, as well as explaining the journey to running a density test with hundreds of VMs per node.</p>

<p>Open Source virtualization is almost 20 years old. Obviously, things have evolved a lot in that time: the public cloud, new CPU architectures, new storage technologies, and more.</p> <p>What about the real, on-the-ground usage? Sysadmins, Ops and Devops are not leveraging virtualization the same way today as they did before. But what really changed? In what direction is it evolving? Is on-premise open source virtualization still relevant today?</p> <p>Through our own journey as engineers of ...

<p>It has been well established that the integrity of critical systems must be rooted in the launch. Early works such as the Xoar architecture demonstrated the need for virtualized environments to begin with a lightweight, restricted bootstrap from which isolation of PCI management could be established. Since that time, knowledge of real IOMMU implementations and how to leverage them for system integrity has evolved. In this presentation, the new Hyperlaunch capability for starting hypervisors ...
