Open Matters

Open Matters, Episode 1

OASIS launched a new virtual series called ‘Open Matters’ to spark dialogue & foster community thinking for open source & standards collaboration. Led by OASIS Executive Director, Guy Martin, these forums are informal gatherings that will engage the open development ecosystem, addressing key topics within open source and open standards communities, while helping facilitate cross-industry collaboration.

The first episode on 19 August was an one-on-one conversation between Guy and OASIS Board of Directors Chairman, Gershon Janssen. This is your opportunity to get to know Guy better, and learn more about his vision on how best to link these two communities.

All Things Open 2020

All Things Open format has changed. Along with the decision to transition to virtual comes a resulting change in format. Consuming content in front of a screen is different than walking around / in-person consumption, so we feel it’s vital to change the way in which content is delivered as well. On Monday, Oct 19, OASIS Executive Director, Guy Martin, will speak during the Inclusion & Diversity in Open Source event and Building Diverse Teams & Projects.

Latest improvements to widely deployed PKCS #11: Making cryptographic integrations even easier

As our need for cryptographic capabilities continue to increase, so does the number of solutions available to us to meet those needs. With increasing solution choice often comes increased integration burdens. As one of the most prevalent crypto API sets in the world, PKCS #11 is well supported in the industry and with a solid focus from the OASIS PKCS #11 Technical committee on ensuring its relevance and applicability, integrations should only get easier as this standard continues to develop. During this webinar, the OASIS PKCS #11 Co-chairs cover the new content that has been worked into PKCS #11 v3.0 as well as a preview of what’s to come in v3.1 & v3.2, including the items that have been improved or revised based on feedback from the community.

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

Part of the TOSCA Implementation Webinar Series, #1 Story

The TOSCA Technical Committee releases the first in a series of webinars this month. 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).

Tune in on Wednesday, 27 January to learn more and to find out what other implementation stories are on the schedule.

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).

Event is scheduled for Wednesday, 24 February at 11:00 AM ET / 4:00 PM GMT.
