About this event

Our OpenStack Networking month continues at our south bay meetup. This week's topic:

OpenStack Networking for Multi-Hypervisor Data Centers

OpenStack is being deployed in multi-hypervisor data centers with VMware ESX. As new apps such as web/mobile are developed in OpenStack clouds, seamless connectivity is needed for the apps to access data residing in traditional VMware clusters. Join this meet up as we present the multi-hypervisor scenarios and how to interconnect KVM and ESX to bridge the two clouds so they are transparent to apps. PLUMgrid will also share a demo at the end of the session.
