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.

SDN Fundamentals and best practices for NFV in OpenStack, Kubernetes, and Containers

Just as OpenStack has become the de-facto choice for a virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM) on early NFV deployments, Kubernetes is taking that role for Container environments. Although OpenStack and Container environments like OpenShift come with their software-based networking services, they are often augmented by external SDN solutions. These SDN solutions give you the agility, flexibility, and security for your cloud while running your applications at ANY scale. This session will illustrate the why and how SDN integrates with OpenStack and Kubernetes-based Container platform - how they work together and provide advanced connectivity services such as Service Chaining, SD-WAN, and NaaS. Attendees will learn: (a) Differences between SDN and NFV in OpenStack and Kubernetes-based Container environment (b) How OpenStack and Kubernetes enable SDN and NFV to easily work together and (c) Typical Challenges encountered and best practices to overcome / mitigate.
