OpenStack, SDN, and the Future of Infrastructure-as-Service (Cisco)

Speaker: Lew Tucker, Cisco

Infrastructure-as-a-Service, as exemplified by the success of commercial cloud computing service providers, has clearly proven to be the fastest way to develop and deploy elastic web applications. With the introduction of OpenStack, SDN and API’s for programmatic control over both physical and virtual infrastructure, an opportunity emerges for a completely new way to think about “infrastructure as a service” for both tenants and system administrators alike. This talk will focus on how we and others in the community are working with OpenStack and extending the Quantum network service to explore new ways to think about the delivery of network services and infrastructure management. While still in it’s early formative stage, this approach promises to bring new meaning and possibilities for infrastructure-as-a-service limited only by our own imagination.
