Multifaceted Evolution of the Cisco's Virtual Infrastructure (CVIM) Cloud Platform

An IaaS platform must accommodate and adapt to requirements from multiple perspectives, including hardware, software, and workloads. In this talk, we will illustrate how Cisco's OpenStack NFV platform (CVIM) addresses true customer needs in terms of footprint and workload type, while ensuring features like ease of operation, multi-backend storage, and security continue to evolve. 

This talk will also demonstrate how we are bringing in the Cisco Container Platform (CCP) as an application on CVIM, with an option to run Kubernetes workloads on VMs or bare metal hosts. By giving customers the flexibility to run VNFs on bare metal hosts, VMs, or containers - all on the same platform - CVIM provides users with a mechanism to move their VNFs to a cloud native offering over time, without adding the learning curve of another platform.
