(Tutorial) FreeIPA, Part I - Jakub Hrozek, Red Hat

The tutorial will provide a hands-on introduction to FreeIPA - an integrated identity management solution. The FreeIPA project brings together several industry-proven technologies such as LDAP or Kerberos. Easy-to-use installation scripts and both command line and browser-based interfaces make previously complex task of rolling out enterprise identity management easy, scalable and accessible.
We'll demonstrate the installation, setup and several tasks such as user management or establishing a trust setup with an Active Directory domain. We'll also show the advantages of using the SSSD for client machines, like the ability to access identity servers offline.
The tutorial is mainly targeted at system administrators. Rudimentary knowledge of technologies such as LDAP is advantageous, but not required. A VM image based on Fedora 18 will be available for the attendance to experiment easily.

(Tutorial) Building FOSS Clouds, Part I - Sebastien Goasguen, Citrix

Do you dream of spinning up ten, twenty, or a thousand virtual machines in an instant? Discover and repair bottlenecks without moving a finger? Dodge the loss of an entire storage array with no-one noticing? During this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to leverage FOSS and Linux tools to build a powerful, scalable cloud that easily competes with proprietary solutions.The tutorial is aimed at those interested in building clouds and uses Xen and CloudStack as examples to get started. You will leave with a collection of pre-made tools that you can use right out of the box or modify to your liking. You will also leave with immediately useful knowledge on best practices and common pitfalls covering areas such as security, multi-tenancy and others. Tools discussed include Xen, XCP. Open vSwitch, OpenStack, CloudStack and DevOps tools such as Chef, Puppet and Juju.

(Tutorial) Hands-On With Ceph: Object Storage, Block Storage, Filesystem & More, Part I - Florian Haas, Hastexo

Ceph is one of the most interesting new technologies to recently emerge in the Linux storage space. Based on the RADOS object store, the Ceph stack boasts massive scalability and high availability commercial, off-the shelf hardware and free and open source software. Ceph includes a massively distributed filesystem (Ceph FS), a striped, replicated, highly available block device (RBD), S3 and Swift object storage capability through the RESTful RADOS Gateway, and a simple, well-documented native API withlanguage bindings for C, C++ and Python.
This hands-on tutorial will walk you through the initial setup of a Ceph cluster, highlight its most important features and identify current shortcomings, discuss performance considerations, and identify common Ceph failure modes and recovery.
Good Linux sysadmin/devops background recommended for attendees. Distributed storage knowledge is a plus.
