      Containers and Orchestration in the CERN Cloud 50m

      Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, Kubernetes, Mesos... containers remain a hot topic in computing, with new use cases and tools appearing every day. Basic functionality such as spawning containers seems to have settled, but topics like volume support or networking are still evolving.

      In this presentation we will describe and demo how we're integrating OpenStack Magnum as a solution to provide container support and orchestration in the CERN cloud, without having to bet on a single container product. We will describe some of the work we've been doing upstream as part of an OpenLab collaboration with Rackspace, building on feedback from some of our early pilot service users.

      We will cover Magnum's main functionality and some advanced use cases using Docker Swarm and Kubernetes, and how they can be used to improve common use cases in HEP, European projects like Indigo DataCloud and several of our infrastructure services. Finally, we'll summarize the most relevant differences between existing container solutions, how we're integrating storage services like Cinder and CVMFS, and future plans for more advanced functionality.

      Speakers: Bertrand Noel (Ministere des affaires etrangeres et europeennes (FR)), Mathieu Velten (CERN), Ricardo Brito Da Rocha (CERN)
