Ever get the feeling your cloud is just a bit too...cloudy? The flexibility and resource utilization that the cloud can offer might seem fantastic at first, but things look a little less rosy when you start thinking about the performance impacts the cloud can have on your applications, right?
Never fear: the OpenStack community hears you and and since Juno, projects like Nova have been on a steady march towards adding the features and capabilities that users with NFV and HPC workloads really need from their cloud. The latest of these Nova features builds upon earlier work to finally make real-time workloads in an OpenStack cloud a reality. In this talk, we take a peek under the Nova hood to see how this feature works and how it ties into earlier work in this area. We then demonstrate why this matters and how you can use this feature and others like it in your own applications.
