A Seamlessly Federated Multi-Cloud

Current multi-cloud architectures don't integrate beyond the identity layer. They may allow a user to access multiple clouds with a single set of credentials, but that's where the integration ends.

Is it possible for multiple clouds to behave like a single cloud?  Can a VM  seamlessly attach a volume from another cloud? Can that same VM boot from an image stored in yet another cloud? What about VMs in different clouds on the same private network without the overhead of VPN?

Join us as we explore scalability, security and edge computing use cases, and present the solution we have developed (mixmatch) and the challanges we have encountered on our quest for a seamlessly federated multi-cloud.


What can I expect to learn?

Architectures for federated clouds. Identity federation and our solution to resource federation. Use cases for scalability, security, performance, and edge computing.
