Developing, Deploying, and Consuming L4-7 Network Services in an OpenStack Cloud

RSVP required.

The OpenStack infrastructure services for compute, networking, and storage have matured and are seeing increased adoption in production environments. In this tutorial session we will show you how to combine these fundamental services with other ancillary services around image management, security, monitoring, policy-based orchestration to build, deploy and consume rich networking services in your OpenStack Cloud.

This tutorial session is aimed at developers, operators, and users alike. A working environment will be provided to the attendees for experimentation. If you are a developer or vendor, you will learn how to leverage existing OpenStack constructs to expose your service offering. If you are an operator, you will learn how to configure, deploy and expose these service offerings in a few simple steps. If you are a user, you will learn how to consume single services, or compose a chain of services, and incorporate them in your application topology.
