Bare Metal Provisioning in CloudStack - Jaydeep Marfatia, Accelerite
For container deployments, bare metal is the preferred way to go over virtualization. For a cloud orchestrator like CloudStack it is highly important to have a full suite of bare metal offering, so as to run Containers as a service on top of CloudStack and on bare metal servers. This talk is about the current architecture of bare metal provisioning in CloudStack, and the recent improvements our team has done. We will present the current design architecture and implementation and its limitations, and what enhancements were done. Also discuss options for future integrations with Redfish and enabling more networking equipment.

Cloudstack - Apache's Best Kept Secret - Giles Sirett, ShapeBlue
CloudStack is one of the most successful Apache projects - but awareness of it remains poor. It is used to underpin the IaaS offerings of many of the worlds largest service providers and as an infrastructure automation platform to underpin the development and operations of 1000's of organisations globally.

Giles will give an overview of the technology and explain his view on why CloudStack remains to "secret man" of Apache projects. He will talk through the history of the technology. He will discuss its use-cases (particularly as the foundation of CI/CD and dev environments) and the advantages of it being an Apache project.

He will be open and frank in his views on what he would like to see change in order that CloudStack gets the attention it deserves

Why Apache CloudStack - Gabriel Beims Bräscher, Autonomiccs
Apache CloudStack is one of the most competitive and affordable alternatives to create and manage a cloud computing environment. Although CloudStack has proven to be a solid choice when compared to its competitors, it holds but a small fraction of the cloud computing orchestration market share. The reasons why Apache CloudStack is sometimes forgotten will be highlighted and discussed in this presentation, alongside the strong points of picking Apache CloudStack as your cloud computing orchestration tool.

Building a Container Solution on Top of Apache CloudStack- Steve Roles, ShapeBlue
Cloud native applications running in containerised environments look set to create a paradigm shift in the way compute resources are consumed. However, this presents challenges (both technical and business) to Cloud Service providers who have already invested heavily in Infrastructure as a Service offerings based on the virtual machine model. Paul will discuss these challenges, look at the services that end-users will demand in a containerised world and how major public cloud providers have overcome these challenges. He will then showcase an exciting new project that gives a simple method for operators to deploy Containers as a Service to their end-users, based on Apache CloudStack.

Cloud: Zero to Sixty - Will Stevens, CloudOps
IaaS Cloud Orchestration does not have to be hard. Apache CloudStack can get you operational in a matter of days. I will take you through the design and install process to start taking advantage of the extensive features of Apache CloudStack. Orchestration of hypervisors, storage, networking and more are all handled by this production grade Apache project. This session will explain why Apache CloudStack is the fastest, most reliable, and cost effective way to build a cloud platform for modern application development, DevOps, CI/CD, and cloud native workloads such as Kubernetes and Docker.

Why and How to Build CloudStack API Plug-ins (with a Real-World Example) - Mike Tutkowski, SolidFire
Apache CloudStack is a highly customizable cloud management platform. It enables developers to write plug-ins for a wide range of areas including, but not limited to, storage, networking, VM distribution across hosts, and API.

I would like to explain why it can be beneficial to extend CloudStack's standard API with your own API commands and how to do this.

I walk the audience through a real-world example that demonstrates a business case for extending CloudStack's API. During this process, you learn how to cleanly separate the API, business, and DB layers. At the end, you have transparently extended CloudStack's API so that clients do not have to know which API commands they invoke on CloudStack are standard and which are custom added.
