Building Tiny Private openSUSE Cloud
We can build and own a genuine private cloud
Masayuki Igawa is a software engineer for over 15 years on a wide range of software projects, and developing open source software related to Linux kernel and virtualization. He's been an active technical contributor to OpenStack for years. He is also an OpenStack Tempest, subunit2sql, openstack-health core member in mostly Quality Assurance area. He currently works for SUSE's OpenStack Quality Engineering team to make the open source software better both side of upstream and downstream. He has previously been a speaker at OpenStack Summits, LinuxCons Japan, FOSSAsia, Linux.conf.au, OpenStack Days Tokyo, July Tech Festa, Open Source Developers Conference, SUSECon and openSUSE.Asia Summit.

Recently, public clouds are getting to a majority of infrastructures. For example, using containers, Docker, Kubernetes, Web applications, etc. Of course, public clouds are very convenient because they are very easy to use and cheap comparing to using physical machines. However, it's sometimes a bit boring for some people who want to know/manage the whole of the things such as physical network, storage, machines, etc. And also, an experience of building a tiny cloud with physical machines could be a very good opportunity to understand computer technologies. Moreover, it's fun for such people like me.
I had built a my own tiny private cloud with openSUSE and OpenStack on my own physical machines. And I'm now using it for some of purposes such as evaluating new Linux distributions, containers, Kubernetes, etc. I had allocated the budget around only 50k JPY (500USD) for building it. It's quite a cheap to build a cloud system, actually. However, it can be done with open source software and some tricks.
In this talk, attendees will get to know about the tiny private cloud how to build, issues/challenges, benefit and the potential capabilities of openSUSE.
