In this class we will go through the basics of City Cloud and teach you how to create servers, do some basic server planning and how to set up your servers in multiple data centers. We will also cover other basic features such as file storage, backup and load balancing.
In this class we will show you how to plan and set up a redundant and load balanced web service. We will cover the thought process of load balancing in general and show which OpenStack Services to use. Finally, there are a couple of things to really consider when deploying.
Getting started with Automation
Automation is a huge part of cloud computing in general and City Cloud in particular. Utilising API:s and SDK:s to automatically manage and scale your infrastructure is key to ensure efficient use of time and resources. In this class we talk about automation in general and explain how it works. We will also get you started with some of the automation tools available out there.
Cloud Automation in OpenStack, Turn Up The Heat!
Hosting your applications and services in a public cloud, it is common for them to grow to fairly significant complexity. At the same time, it is absolutely vital that you maintain scalability and reproducibility for all your deployments. In City Cloud, you can easily meet these requirements with OpenStack Heat, the built-in cloud orchestration service. Heat allows you to create arbitrarily complex environments including virtual servers, networks, firewalls, and even load balancers, and scale them up and down as your business requires.
