CORD Workshop

 

 

Introduction

 

CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) combines NFV, SDN, and the elasticity of commodity clouds to bring datacenter economics and cloud agility to the Telco Central Office. CORD lets the operator manage their Central Offices using declarative modeling languages for agile, real-time configuration of new customer services. Major service providers like AT&T, SK Telecom, Verizon, China Unicom and NTT Communications are already supporting CORD.

1-Day Criterion OpenStack Fundamentals Workshop
(Instructor Based)

 

 

Introduction

 

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. Like other aspects of the cloud operating system, it can be used by administrators and users to increase the value of existing datacenter assets.

This 1-day workshop focuses on introducing the cloud computing concepts followed by detailed discussion on OpenStack Architecture, components and typical deployments. In order to quickly visualize the learnt concepts and understand clearly, a demo will be performed on Instructor’s laptop where we launch the VM in the OpenStack cloud and discuss on how components will work together.

Objetives

After working Criterion OpenStack Fundamentals workshop, participants will have clear understanding of the following topics.

  1. Cloud Computing Terminologies
  2. OpenStack Architecture
  3. OpenStack Components
  4. Interworking of OpenStack Components
  5. Network Virtualization
  6. NFV and OpenStack
  7. OpenStack Ecosystem

Pre-Requisites

  • Computing, Storage, Networking Basics
  • Virtualization Knowledge

Target Audience

  • Technical Marketing Engineers
  • Technical Leaders/Managers
  • Senior Managers and Directors
  • Network Administrators/Engineers
  • Network Support Engineers
  • Software Engineers (Dev/Test)
  • Sales/Systems Engineers
  • System Administrators/ IT Engineers.

 

 

 

2-Day Criterion OpenStack Boot Camp
(Instructor Based)

 

 

Introduction

 

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. Like other aspects of the cloud operating system, it can be used by administrators and users to increase the value of existing datacenter assets. OpenStack Networking ensures the network will not be the bottleneck or limiting factor in a cloud deployment and gives users real self-service, even over their network configurations.

The OpenStack bootcamp provided in-depth understanding and hand-on implementation skills with OpenStack Compute, Storage and Networking modules to its participants.

Objetives

After working Criterion OpenStack Boot Camp, participants will have clear understanding of the following topics.

  1. Low level details of OpenStack Architecture
  2. Automated tools for OpenStack deployment
  3. Able to add/delete users/tenants/assign roles
  4. Able to add images into OpenStack
  5. Able to create compute flavors, key-pairs, security-groups
  6. Able to create and add volumes for block and object storage
  7. Network Virtualization concepts
  8. Neutron Core Plugins
  9. Neutron Service Plugins – LBaaS, FWaaS

Pre-Requisites

  • Knowledge of Networking Fundamentals, Layer2/3, Layer4-7 Services.
  • OpenStack Fundamentals workshop

Target Audience

  • Technical Marketing Engineers
  • Technical Leaders/Managers
  • Network Administrators/Engineers
  • Network Support Engineers
  • Software Engineers (Dev/Test)
  • Sales/Systems Engineers
