About this event

Hello all - Chicago-Land OpenStack is back!!

Scheduled for Thursday October 1st is a session that covers some of the hottest topics in the world of OpenStack; SDN and Containers.  Join us and our sponsor Midokura to learn about containers in OpenStack.

Topic Overview:

"Crawl, Walk, Run!! The Evolution of OpenStack Networking"

In this talk, we will take a stroll down memory lane from a networking perspective. We will recall the early stages of Nova-Networking, how it evolved to Neutron today, and look at what to expect in the future of OpenStack networking. We will discuss previous shortcomings, the drivers for evolution, and the movement towards scaling applications with microservices and containers. Finally, we will discuss the impact of OpenStack projects that incorporate containers such as Nova-Docker, Magnum and Kuryr.
