TOPIC: Unified Underlay and Overlay SDNs for OpenStack Clouds 

 ABSTRACT: With unified underlay and overlay SDNs, IT and operators can leverage best of both technologies to build service-rich SDNs for OpenStack clouds. At this meet up, PLUMgrid will discuss an overlay SDN architecture for service rich SDNs with service function chaining for 3rd party VNFs and demonstrate how to build that using Cisco Nexus 9K as the underlay to leverage the power and throughput of the Nexus fabric.
