HPCC Systems Logs in the Cloud -Update Nov 2021Log visualizations help identify, track and predict important events and trends on HPCC Systems clusters, by spotting interesting patterns and giving you visual clues which are easier to interpret than reading through the log file itself. Starting in HPCC Systems 8.0.0, a mechanism will be provided to deploy a lightweight Elastic Stack instance as a simple solution for the logs on-cloud processing challenges. In this blog, Rodrigo Pastrana walks through how to get started, view the logs, apply filter conditions and configure the Elastic Stack components.

A Customized HPCC Systems Cloud Deployment for Your Company

Focuses on the approach and methods used in a custom Azure cloud deployment, based on our own company experience. This includes how to perform robust deployments of HPCC Systems environments on the cloud, with a focus on security, maintainability and supportability, and using the precepts of zero touch and zero trust.

HPCC Systems Logging in the Cloud and an Elastic Stack Solution
As HPCC Systems continues its journey to the cloud, one major challenge faced is the ephemeral nature of log data and the accessibility of distributed application-level logs. This presentation discusses these challenges, the HPCC Systems logging architecture, and a simple Elastic Stack-based solution to the challenge. We'll demonstrate in detail the end-to- end solution, which includes Helm-based deployment, Kibana configuration, HPCC Systems log exploration, querying, and filtering. We'll also discuss an advanced topic that improves log data query performance by utilizing Elastic Search Ingest Pipelines. Finally, we'll touch on other possible solutions such as Azure Log Analytics.Greg Panagiotatos & Rodrigo Pastrana

Design Considerations for Migrating Your HPCC Systems Data Lake to the Cloud

Lessons learned and design best practices through our own cloud migration experience are shared. The beginning of our presentation is a simple installation of our cluster on Azure using the community helm charts. During this demo we hit topics such as how the HPCC Systems platform differs between the Kubernetes cluster that we are deploying and the bare metal installations that community members are familiar with. Dive into helm for HPCC Systems, the value of .yaml files and a few different ways that the cluster can be configured and explain storage in the cloud compared to bare metal. Then learn about ROXIE and Thor usage in the cloud. Krishna covers some details about getting query lists, suspended queries, and doing package file deployments. Michael expands on basic security features that end users will want to enable in the cloud, including encryption in transit and at rest in a cloud environment such as Azure.Krishna Turlapathi & Michael Gardner

Cloud Security & Authentication in HPCC Systems

Covers a discussion of some current and future technology enhancements around HPCC Systems platform security, with a primary focus on cloud deployments. This session will include a look at support for mutual transport layer security between internal components within an HPCC Systems environment, external facing TLS for securing access into the HPCC Systems environment, using cert-manager to generate TLS certificates for HPCC Systems services and components, installing externally created TLS certificates, secrets management, and a look at our plans for future support of OAUTH2 based authentication and authorization, with an initial focus on support for OAUTH2 integration with Azure Active Directory services.Russ Whitehead, Tony Fishbeck & Mark Kelly

Securing Your Cloud Native HPCC Systems with Service Mesh

With the advent of Cloud and Kubernetes over the years, machines are no longer considered as attached to a data center. Machines are more ephemeral than ever before. The traditional architecture of the HPCC Systems environment harnessed the physical storage of each node and that in turn gave certain performance benefits. But with cloud, it is no longer necessary to have a fixed machine for a process. The true power of cloud can be harnessed only when we treat them as ephemeral. Therefore, a Thor worker node which is always on in a traditional HPCC Systems environment is spun up only when it is required in a cloud environment. With the latest cloud native version of HPCC Systems, we now have the flexibility to spin up the clusters only when required. In this session, we will cover how the latest cloud native platform is different from the bare metal version, explain service mesh and how it fits into the HPCC Systems scheme of things, and a comparison of service mesh Istio and Linkerd.Manish Kumar Jaychand
