    Zoltan Arnold Nagy, Mark Korondi
    Ceph has become the de-facto standard for deploying a highly available, distributed storage system underneath OpenStack. While it's very easy to start using ceph, selecting the right hardware is always a challenge. What's the optimal SSD-to-HDD ratio? SATA, NL-SAS or SAS? How cheap is cheap if I still want to get reasonable performance?

    Beginning in late 2013, a small team at Time Warner Cable has been designing, building, and operating an OpenStack cloud. Over the past 18 months, we’ve grown the team and tripled our original deployment as we’ve offered more capacity and services to internal customers. During this time we made some good decisions, but also some mistakes. We’d like to share the journey, good and bad, and show you... [read more]

    Pere Monclus
    The concept of High Availability (HA) in the hardware world is well understood by cloud operators and vendors for both compute and network layers. However, when a cloud operator deploys a large-scale OpenStack cloud, most of the key cloud components are supported in software. Consequently, the cloud operator needs to ensure that HA spans across all layers and components involved in the lifecycle... [read more]

    MySQL is now ideal for applications using time-series data, with millions of inserts per second and petabyte data volumes. The non-SQL alternatives abandon SQL, transactions, ad-hoc queries, joins and the relational model in order to handle data velocity. Moshe will talk about how you can meet these new data challenges using the MySQL you know and love.

    Consistency and predictability of performance is often as important as the performance itself. Many time-sensitive applications rely on their underlying database to deliver a required level of performance in order to meet their SLA requirements. As a result, sudden changes of performance is often directly linked to loss of revenue in many enterprise applications. While many researchers and... [read more]
