In this user panel, we will discuss the OpenStack network deployment experiences of three different enterprise-scale data centers using a Unified Physical + Virtual Neutron Networking architecture.
- Clemson University: Deploying a production-grade OpenStack Virtual Desktop environment. Experiences with deployment and operation of OpenStack and VmWare on converged data center pods, leveraging multi-tier network segmentation for threat or fault isolation, troubleshooting, monitoring and compliance.
- Telus: Experiences with deploying a Unified Physical and Virtual networking solution for OpenStack using Mirantis Fuel. Learnings from provisioning, managing and troubleshooting distributed L2 & L3 networking across physical and virtual switch infrastructure.
- CleanSafeCloud: Meeting performance and resilience requirements of an OpenStack-powered collocated private cloud infrastructure, encompassing IaaS and Object Storage solutions for highly secure applications, leveraging SDN architecture.
Attendees should expect real world experiences from data center architects who have deployed neutron networks in production. In addition to scale and resilience of a managing an L2+L3 network from OpenStack Horizon, the panel will discuss the implications of using a unified physical + virtual networking architecture, and the challenges and benefits of using white-box based switching platforms.
