The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The open infrastructure landscape is changing, and so is the Summit. Now that users are integrating dozens of open source tools into a modern stack that reaches well beyond the scope of OpenStack, we’re re-organizing the event to focus on specific problem domains like container infrastructure, edge computing and CI/CD and we are focusing on the hard work of integrating all of these tools developed in disparate communities. This is the essential work of 2018 and beyond, to ensure that open infrastructure is truly a viable path for operators.

SD-WAN - The open source way

SD-WAN is a hot topic. With many startups producing different architectures to build a software defined WAN to connect branch offices, it is a popular solution to ease the deployment of managed and un managed CPEs.

This session will discuss the SD-WAN architecture in depth and provide a solution based on purely open source products and the OpenStack platform, to build an SD-WAN that is relatively easy to implement and automate via Ansible.

We will demonstrate provisioning and configuration of vCPE at a branch office discuss the architecture options OpenStack environments and provide orchestration and monitoring options for such an environment.
