Deploying Lots of Teeny Tiny Telco Clouds

Over the last year at AT&T we have been deploying dozens of OpenStack clouds to host VNFs and other applications central to AT&T's business. This has been a challenging process which has produced enough heroic tales to fill a legendary tome of engineering. In this talk, we will focus on the particular problem of deploying very small form factor, multi-vendor, OpenStack clouds.

What can I expect to learn?

How to deal with multiple DHCPs and PXE booters (multi-vendor) on a single L2 network

How to create a very small form factor bootstrap environment (<100MB)
