Overview of Axsh's newest project: OpenVDC

In Japanese by unakatsuo

OpenVDC's goal is to bring a strong infrastructure testing suite to the industry. The main motivation for the project is to build a device agnostic provisioning engine for datacenters.

We envision an infrastructure testing suite covering configuration and validation for physical network devices. While infrastructure testing code runs, those physical network devices have to be available but they don't have to be dedicated to specific tests. The OpenVDC project can dynamically provision physical network devices as well as virtual resources for infrastructure testing.

In this session, unakatsuo will talk about:

  1. Design goal
  2. Current architecture and progress
  3. Underlying technology (Mesos, Zookeeper, Golang)
  4. Q&A

Using Clay to combine OpenVDC and OpenVNet into an autotesting tool

In Japanese by Metallion


Clay is a project written in Go by qb0C80aE specialized in creating virtual networks for testing. For example if you have a physical router or firewall running in production, changing its settings can be a very scary thing to do. If any of the new settings break something on the production network, engineers need to scramble to fix it, users experience down time and the company loses money.

Clay allows you to create a virtual network and generate test cases though either a GUI or a Web API. Behind the scenes it will generate a Terraform template which will then build the virtual topology on top of OpenVDC and OpenVNet. Once that is done, Clay will execute automatically generated test cases on this virtual environment. This way any new network settings can be thoroughly tested before applying them in production.

This presentation will include a live demo.
