This session’s goal is to illustrate how devops can use Heat to orchestrate the deployment and scaling of complex applications on top of OpenStack. Starting with a walk-thru of the example deployment Heat Templates for OpenShift Origin (available in openstack github repository) I’ll walk thru the existing templates and enhance them to provide additional functionalities such as positioning alarms, responding to alarms, adding instances, and auto-scaling.

  • Introduction to PaaS Architecture (5 mins)
  • Introduction to OpenShift & OpenStack (5 mins)
  • Introduction to Heat 10 mins
  • Demo OpenShift deployment using Heat (12.5 mins)
  • In depth examinations of the Heat Templates (12.5 mins)

I’ll also cover creating images with OpenStack’s Disk Builder and registering the images with Glance.
