App Operator: The Hidden Persona - Ria Bhatia & Sudhanva Huruli, Microsoft
As enterprises look to deliver quality software as part of their business, two roles have been naturally created: the developer and the infrastructure administrator. Technologies such as Kubernetes have tackled the problem of managing the infrastructure. However, there is still a gap for how we manage applications on top of these systems. As a result, infrastructure operators and developers are forced to deal with concepts that are outside the scope of their roles. This talk will focus on the importance of having an application operator and the duties of this role in an enterprise embracing cloud native technologies.

Dealing with Verification Data Overload - Lan Xia & Renfei Wang, IBM
Massive amounts of test logs and console output are generated each day at the AdoptOpenJDK and Eclipse OpenJ9 projects because of the huge number of tests multiplied by the number of versions, platforms and implementations tested. This 'noise' from daily, personal, and pull request builds require processing in order to consume and make sense of it. In some cases, we can instrument the test code to be less verbose. In all cases, this raw data need to be refined effectively to understand what next action to take.

This presentation covers our approaches to the application of data visualization, filtering, and categorization. We are also trying to employing relevant technologies such as deep learning. Our ultimate goal is to display the results efficiently, allow users to quickly narrow down the problems and better monitor the farm to support the complex continuous delivery pipelines.

Network Visibility in Hybrid and Multi Clouds - Suresh Kumar Anaparti & Harikrishna Patnala, Accelerite
Networks in the Hybrid/Multi Cloud deployments across data centers are complex to monitor and troubleshoot. Diversity of network providers and multi-vendor appliances compound the validation of policy enforcement with finer details.

Network Visibility platform enables understanding traffic patterns, performance and policy compliance in the network. Also, smart audits can be performed over discrete networks through machine intelligence minimising human intervention. Cloud Network Admins would be able to quickly root cause with granular details that can feed into reactively redesigning network policies/rules.

In this presentation, Suresh will introduce the concepts of Network Visibility in Hybrid and Multi Cloud environments, strategies for Cloud Admins to leverage visibility platforms, supported by realtime customer use cases based on his experience in the live CloudStack deployments.

Virtualization, Automation and DevOps – Why it’s Taking so long for Telcos? - Anuradha Udunuwara, Sri Lanka Telecom PLC
Telecom industry has been talking about SDN, NFV, Cloud, Virtualization or what I call all of them
together as “softwarization”, for quite some time. But, except for few telcos around the world, most of
them seems to be struggling to achieve what was expected – “automation”. There are many reasons for
that – technical and non-technical. How to put virtualization, automation and DevOps in place and use
the tools like SDN, NFV, Cloud to achieve the ultimate objective of Digital Transformation – to become a
Digital Service Provider or Digital Lifestyle Service Provider or whoever you want to call? What were the
original roadblocks? Did we address them? What else need to be addressed to shorten the transformation
and start reaping the benefits?

Introduce an SPDK vhost FUSE Target to Accelerate File Access in VM and Containers - Liu Changpeng & Liu Xiaodongl, Intel
Virtio-fs(https://virtio-fs.gitlab.io/) is proposed recently to provide file system sharing for lightweight VMs and containers workloads, where shared volumes are a requirement.

In this presentation, we propose an SPDK(Storage Performance Development Kit, https://spdk.io) userspace vhost-user-fs solution, which can be used together with QEMU/Kata Container to accelerate virtio-fs. Virtio-fs uses FUSE instead of 9P for communication. We will present this solution in details including the utilization of techniques such as virtio-fs, blobfs (SPDK file system) and the significant performance gain achieved. Blobfs can be built on abstract block device layer in SPDK, which can access local or remote storage services via iSCSI/NVMe/NVMeoF protocols in userspace. Relying on this solution, we are going to build a fast, consistent and secure manner to share directory tree on host to guests.
