Ubicity: Pure TOSCA Orchestration

Ubicity is a pure TOSCA orchestrator: orchestration functionality is based exclusively on features in the TOSCA language without any built-in knowledge about domain-specific types or platform-specific implementations. Domain-specific information is introduced into the Orchestrator using TOSCA Profiles (a TOSCA Version 2.0 feature). Profiles include the artifacts that provide implementations for domain-specific types.

This webinar will highlight how Ubicity uses TOSCA features such as Requirement Fulfillment and Substitution Mapping to support abstract service templates that are realized based on available resources at deployment time. We will use deployment of Kubernetes Clusters as an example to demonstrate how Profiles are introduced into the Ubicity catalog, how the Orchestrator is made aware of external resources, how Service Archives are onboarded, and how services are deployed from the catalog.

Open Matters: Buyer’s Guide to Foundations

Part of the Open Matters Livestream series

Starting up a new open source or standards project, or forking one? Governance is likely on your mind (or at least it should be). How do you build your community and ensure that you can get wide adoption and collaboration beyond just your own organization? Early on in a project, you can probably go it alone, but, history has shown that as projects get bigger and more complex, with more players, a need for independent and neutral governance becomes critical. 

Join us for the next Open Matters episode, where Guy Martin sits down with OASIS Board member Rich Bowen of Red Hat to get his take on what projects should be looking for as they search for a Foundation or Consortium that meets their needs. The discussion will conclude with ample time for questions.

Indicators of Behaviour: How Can We Communicate and Collaborate on Them

During this first “OCA Community Forum,” we’ll tackle the topic of Indicators of Behaviour or IoBs. OCA Board Co-Chair, Jason Keirstead of IBM, will be joined by Lodrina Cherne from Cybereason to review:

  • What is an IoB, and how it differs from an Indicators of Attack (IoA) and Indicators of Compromise (IoC)?
  • How can (and should) an IoB be used by security practitioners, what outcomes are they used for?
  • Whether cybersecurity products should exchange IoBs? Assuming so, how would and should that work?
  • How the Open Cybersecurity Alliance plans to formulate a point of view around them.

Will Cloud Architecture Conquer the Heart of Industrial Manufacturing – Using TOSCA?

Part of the TOSCA Implementation Webinar Series

Industrial manufacturing, long a laggard in the adoption of IT innovations, is experiencing a sudden and significant transformation of end-to-end digitalization. At the very heart of industrial manufacturing are proprietary solutions known as the “Industrial Control System” or “ICS”, an approximately $150B global market. Now entering testing and pilot demonstrations are Open-ICS architectures that are embracing modern IT technologies including virtualization and a 500X increase in compute power. And TOSCA is emerging as an important tool to simplify lifecycle management of applications and infrastructure in this Open-ICS environment. The webinar guest speakers will explain how CPLANE.ai just recently completed a highly successful pilot with ExxonMobil demonstrating the incredible power of orchestration using TOSCA in an Open-ICS.

This demonstration highlights the reduced startup time by more than 99% of an ICS. The speakers will also discuss how orchestration is being accepted as the key technology to displace proprietary systems. Orchestration is opening industrial manufacturing to Open and powerful IT and Cloud technologies, accelerating the digital transformation of industrial manufacturing. Yes, cloud architectures and technologies are conquering the heart of industrial manufacturing. Join us in this Webinar to learn how the TOSCA framework is leading the way.

MQTT-SN: MQTT for the Internet of Smaller Things

OASIS would like to invite all to join us for an ‘Internet of Smaller Things — MQTT-SN’ on Wednesday, 3 June, at 11:00 AM EDT (GMT-04:00).

Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a widely used, lightweight, machine-to-machine (M2M) messaging protocol used between devices and the IoT platform. MQTT-SN (MQTT for Sensor Networks) is an optimized version of MQTT, designed specifically for wireless sensor networks with scale in mind. MQTT-SN further improves efficiencies in both data transmission and power consumption. This standard will provide a solid platform for implementers and integrators to offer and develop services targeting low power sensors while providing simple integration to existing MQTT deployments.

If you’re looking to learn how you can cut costs while deploying your IoT network at scale, come along and learn more about MQTT-SN from the experts leading the effort.

Elevating Security Orchestration with CACAO

The OASIS Collaborative Automated Course of Action Operations (CACAO) for Cybersecurity standard is defining executable, course-of-action (prevention, mitigation, and remediation) response playbooks and workflows devised for cybersecurity events. Each CACAO playbook will consist of a sequence of cyber defense measures that can be performed by various technological solutions across organizational boundaries and beyond.

During this live broadcast, leaders in the CACAO effort will discuss the persistent challenges facing security orchestration technology today and exactly how CACAO will tackle the orchestration issues in a heterogeneous security environment.

Security teams, including incident responders, threat hunters, and security operations, will learn about examples that can help them take advantage of this new standard for secure collaboration and sharing.

Why TOSCA Continues to be the ‘Go-To’ Choice for Workload Cloud-based Applications & Services Lifecycle Management

TOSCA, the “Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications,” is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for cloud application and NFV (Network Functions Virtualization). Simply put, TOSCA enables users to deploy and orchestrate the lifecycle of application and network services across multiple clouds (and other environments).

Why is TOSCA so widely adopted?

This virtual event reviewed the current state of TOSCA standard, how it has evolved over time and highlight several use cases. A panel of experts also gave you a preview of the new features added to TOSCA version 2.0 (due to be released in 2021) which will further align it with modern development paradigms, including cloud-native and microservices.

AUDIENCE: This event is suitable for … application providers, tooling providers, service providers, cloud brokers, and so on.

Inter-Cloud Computing: How TOSCA Helps Open Telekom Cloud Users Run Anywhere

Part of the TOSCA Implementation Webinar Series, #2 Story

Inter-Cloud computing has been defined as a cloud model that, to guarantee service quality, allows on-demand resources and transfer of workload through interworking of different cloud providers. However, despite the data centre outages in the past, none of the leading commercial cloud providers voluntarily interconnect their infrastructures to allow sharing of on-demand resources among each other. As a result, cloud applications are directly responsible for managing resources provisioning and scheduling. On the other hand, Open Telekom Cloud by Deutsche Telekom (https://open-telekom-cloud.com) is the biggest OpenStack platform in Europe. It facilitates its customers to run a workload in multiple cloud providers. In this presentation, Dr. Tri Vo explains the reason why and how the standard specification TOSCA helps the users of Open Telekom Cloud to design their applications once and run anywhere by using the tool the Cloud Topology Designer (https://designer.otc-service.com).

Turandot: A Lightweight Open-Source Orchestrator That Enables TOSCA for Kubernetes

Part of the TOSCA Implementation Webinar Series, #1 Story

The TOSCA Technical Committee released the first in a series of webinars in January 2020. During this first webinar, you’ll hear from a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat as he shares an open-source orchestrator, Turandot. At its most basic level, Turandot functions as a replacement for Helm. Service designers can use the expressivity and strict validation of TOSCA to create deployments, pods, services, and even KubeVirt virtual machines, to package them as CSAR files and publish them directly to a live cluster. But TOSCA goes beyond Kubernetes manifests in that it allows designers to create their own node types that model higher-level architecture and other custom systems, and then to add the crucial topologies that relate resources to each other (e.g. a service mesh).
