What about networking?  How do I integrate a private OpenStack cloud into my existing IT infrastructure from directory  services to authentication?” Answer these questions and explore considerations with Martin Casado  from Nicira Networks, Joe Arnold from Cloud Scaling, and Bret Piatt from Rackspace providing  insight and guiding discussions.
