CentOS Dojo at London, 13th Sept 2013

A one day sysadmin centric learning and sharing experience

The CentOS Dojo's are a one day event, organised around the world, that bring together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practises in linux centric activities and emerging technologies of note. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.

Todays order of talks:

Stefan Cocora


CentOS in a deployment pipeline: Continuous delivery and how that is evolving at ITV and how we're using rpm packaging and CentOS to support Continuous delivery.

Dominic Cleal


Foreman: provisioning and lifecycle management: An introduction and a walkthrough of the installation, its features for managing hosts, and a sneak peek at some of the latest plugins such as Pulp repo support.

Sebastien Goasguen


Apache CloudStack, the IaaS solution: CloudStack manages a farm of hypervisor to deliver on-demand virtual machine provisioning. It is a full fledge data center orchestrator that combines networking, compute and storage offerings to build your own cloud. After going through the installation/build demo we will review some of the cloud clients out there: apache libcloud, jclouds, knife and talk about their support for CloudStack.



Justin Clift


An angry sysadmins guide to getting started with GlusterFS: Everything an established sysadmin ever wanted to know about getting started and managing glusterfs.

Lester Wade


On-premise AWS: Eucalyptus 3.3 builds on existing EC2, S3 and IAM features with three new services: Auto Scaling, Elastic Load Balancing and Cloud Watch. With a Eucalyptus private cloud, you can shorten delivery cycles and accelerate time to market by providing a standardized and consistent environment that spans both private and public clouds. Lester will provide an overview of Eucalyptus and its AWS compatible services, giving examples of how customers and users are benefiting from this compatibility with their private clouds. Lester will give a technical overview of the Eucalyptus cloud platform and its components, discuss the roadmap for the next year and give a demonstration of the autoscaling and load balancing features.


Felipe Franciosi


Xen and XenServer Storage Performance: The low latency characteristics of modern SSDs bring new challenges to virtualisation platforms. With response times that small, the CPU time spent while processing VM's requests play an important role on the I/O throughput. This talk will review the storage subsystem architecture in Xen and XenServer, presenting numbers for a variety of storage types and discussing how new software techniques can help to mitigate the problem.

Mark Sutton


Couch to FreeIPA: Mark Sutton talks about the benefits of integrating FreeIPA into your cloud infrastructure, demonstrates how to set it up and expose its core features such as centralised authentication, authorisation and DNS.
