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.
