About this event

We have 2 great topics lined up for June!


6:00-6:30: Gather, network, craft beer, good food, swag

Session 1: Container cloud networking: Contiv + OpenShift (and an optional serving of ACI)

Speaker: Sanjeev Rampal: Principal Engineer, Cisco

We will describe the architecture of Contiv, an open source networking solution certified for container platforms such as OpenShift/ Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and others. Contiv supports multiple (non-overlay and overlay) networking modes and backends such as L2, L3, VxLan and ACI. It also supports a set of policy based networking features. Along with architecture summary, we will illustrate some solution scenarios and provide a demonstration of Contiv as a networking option for OpenShift container platform in both ACI and non-ACI networking configuration modes.

Sanjeev is a Principal Engineer in the Cloud Platforms and Services Group at Cisco working on container engineering platforms and solutions including the contiv container networking project. He has earlier worked on the Cisco Intercloud deployment project based on OpenStack and prior to that helped design, develop and deploy multiple successful Cisco networking products such as the ASR9K product family.

Session 2: Kubernetes, Ansible and Open Service Broker API: Enabling microservices in the enterprise

Speakers: Paul More: Principal Software Engineer, Todd Sanders: Director, Software Engineering & John Matthews, Red Hat

Connectivity is not enough to implement microservices-based systems on Kubernetes. Application authors want a seamless service experience that includes connectivity and adding coordinates, credentials, and configuration into their applications. To meet this need, the Kubernetes service catalog uses the Open Service Broker application programming interface (API) to connect any application deployed in Kubernetes to a wide variety of service brokers in a microservices-based software environment. The Open Service Broker API lets service operators integrate with multiple platforms using a single API specification. As a result of this integration pattern, service users benefit from ease and consistency of use across different types of services from different producers, while service producers benefit from having one integration point that gives them access to multiple platforms. In this session, we'll cover the high-level concepts of the Open Service Broker API and show a glimpse of a beautiful future where Post-it notes, carrier pigeons, and long-distance runners are no longer involved in app configuration.

Paul is a Kubernetes committer and leader of the Kubernetes service catalog SIG. His interests include software marketplaces, application configuration, container security and storage.

Todd Sanders is focused on system management solutions for Red Hat. He is currently responsible for Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure development efforts. Todd has been with Red Hat for 12 years, working on both hosted and on-premise management solutions. He brings a wealth of experience in building and leading both on-shore and off-shore software development teams in multiple industries, including telecommunications, manufacturing, and government. Todd lives in Raleigh, NC, with his wife and 2 daughters. He's a graduate of North Carolina State University and an avid fan of Wolfpack athletics.

John Matthews joined Red Hat in 2007 developing products in the systems management space.  He has been a developer on the Red Hat Satellite, Pulp, RHUI, RHCI, and now Ansible Service Broker teams. He holds a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from SUNY @ Stony Brook and a M.B.A. from UNC @ Chapel Hill.  He lives in Raleigh, NC with his wife, daughter, and pack of dobermanns.
