MY TALKS

Everything you always wanted to know about object storage

Software Engineering, Backend

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

The rapid growth of unstructured data is fueling the need for next generation storage that’s flexible, economical, and scalable enough to handle the petabytes of data being created every day. Object storage is the answer!

Ceph is a highly available distributed software-defined storage, that provides two object storage interfaces:
Rados provides native object storage API using a rich library with C/C++, java, python, go and several other bindings.
Ceph RGW (Rados Gateway) provides HTTP REST API that is Amazon S3 and OpenStack swift compatible.
In this talk I will introduce object storage foundations, best practices and Ceph object storage solution.

Cloud object storage: the right way

Software Engineering, Backend

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

We all use cloud object storage extensively, like Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage and others. However, not many utilize its unique capabilities and advanced features, such as versioning, security, life cycle...

Throughout my work developing Ceph object storage and supporting large customers, I’ve seen a lot of incorrect and suboptimal usage. This session will briefly discuss object storage design, highlight valuable features and review practical dos and don’ts.

NVMe/TCP for your data center

Software Engineering, Backend

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

NVMe/TCP is the latest transport added to the of the NVMe over Fabrics protocol and is part of Linux kernel 5.0. One of its great advantages is the use of TCP/IP, the most known network protocol that is implemented in every data center.
It provides performance latencies that are comparable with RDMA transport without requiring any network infrastructure changes.
In this talk, you will get a good understanding of the NVMe/TCP protocol and when to use it. We will also discuss disaggregated storage, and how it can reduce costs and increase usage efficiency, allowing you to get the most of your NVMe storage.

Introduction to Open Source

Software Engineering, General, Community / Networking, Professional Development

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

I will start from an overview of the open source movement, one of the important revolutions in the software industry in the last decades.Then introduce some of the well known current open source projects and discuss different licenses and their differences.
Next I will explain how open source can help you get into the hi tech industry and progress your career.
In the last part of the talk I will focus on how to contribute to open source successfully:
Finding open source projects
Choosing the right project
Starting contributing
Organizations and scholarship to contribute to open source

Open Source in the real world

Software Engineering, General, Community / Networking, Professional Development

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

Open source has won: you can find it everywhere, from simple web pages to the cloud infrastructure.
We will start with a short introduction to Open Source and its principals.
Next you will learn what are software licenses and the different open source licenses types.
I will discuss how to make money from open source and the different open source business models.
We will look at Open Source in the public cloud, the issues that arisen and the changes resulted for them in it.
We will conclude by presenting some of the large Open Source foundations like Linux foundation and apache, and the programs they have to help new contributors.

Architecting storage application for the public cloud economy

General, Software Engineering, Backend

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

The public cloud presents a new economic model on computing - "pay as you go" model in which you pay only for what you consume, but you pay for everything: compute, storage, networking, QoS and more. This model suggests new considerations for applications architecture that minimize public cloud cost, the presentation discusses the need for storage applications on public cloud, new architecture considerations (with applicability for all types of applications) and presents alternatives for cost reduction of storage applications in the public cloud.

Disaster Recovery of Stateful Applications in a Multi-Cloud Enviorment

Backend, DevOps, Software Engineering

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

Have you ever wondered how to provide for disaster recovery of the state stored in your persistent volumes? What needs to happen to recover the workload on an alternate kubernetes cluster? How can the state be replicated and workloads recreated to use their replicated volumes? Our talk aims to elaborate on the various issues around recovering a workload and its state, in a multi-cluster and a multi region environment. We will demonstrate how replication capable storage systems, such as Ceph/Rook, instead of higher level tools, can be leveraged to provide disaster recovery of workloads across clusters. In addition this session will tease out features required in a multi-cluster control plane, to enable one-click disaster recovery solution for stateful workloads. Attendees will learn how to approach building disaster recovery solutions for their own clouds.
