About this event

Topic: OpenStack Meetup with Neutron IPAM

Location: Rackspace/Geekdom, 620 Folsom St #100, San Francisco, CA 94107

Agenda: Pizza/Beer 6:30-7.  Presentation 7:00-8. Q&A/open till 8:30.

Abstract: Neutron’s new IP Address Management (IPAM) APIs were first release in the Liberty Release and play an important role integrating OpenStack into enterprise architectures. But in addition to data center integration, IPAM also enables a new approach to OpenStack networking that can eliminate overlays and enable nested container endpoints.

At this Meetup, Chris Marino from the Romana project will review the new pluggable IPAM API and provide examples of how IPAM drivers can be deployed with OpenStack. In addition, he will show how Romana, a new open source network security automation solution for Cloud Native Networks, can use IPAM to build multi-tenant OpenStack networks without an overlay.

There will be a live demonstration of OpenStack configured with the Romana IPAM showing multi-tenant network isolation. In addition, Kubernetes will be shown running on OpenStack using Romana network automation to avoid overlay networks for containers as well.

For a sneak peak, try Romana on OpenStack now!

Speaker: Chris Marino is a co-founder of Pani Networks, the sponsor of the Romana project. Prior to Pani Networks, Chris ran OpenStack Product Management and Business Development for Cisco.
