What Does It Take to Deliver a Cloud Infrastructure Spanning both Private and Public Clouds?

What Does It Take to Deliver a Cloud Infrastructure Spanning both Private and Public Clouds?

Large enterprises are embracing Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) as a way of integrating data center infrastructure via virtualized compute, storage, and network resources. The path to realizing SDI requires access to automation to simplify deployment, operation, and compliance practices to significantly reduce OpEX. At the same time, internal IT customers find the public cloud infrastructure highly attractive for several reasons, including on-demand elasticity, simplicity, and cost. The challenge is to bridge these two worlds so that enterprise IT can deliver a simplified on-prem and off-prem experience while providing on-demand elasticity, simplicity, etc. The additional challenge is to accommodate new needs and keep up with the frenetic pace of innovation in the DevOps world of containers, serverless computing, open source tools, and so on. This talk will summarize the landscape and outline a strategic approach to deliver a cloud infrastructure that spans private and public clouds with example use cases.

Delivering Resilient SDN Fabrics for OpenStack NFV Clouds w/Advanced Visibility

Delivering Resilient SDN Fabrics for OpenStack NFV Clouds w/Advanced Visibility

Joint ecosystem solution based on Big Switch’s SDN Fabrics (for cloud and for visibility), Dell Hardware Platform and Red Hat OpenStack Platform 7 for a large NFV deployment at tier-1 US telecom provider. Currently deployed with Verizon http://prn.to/28PE2gh

For deploying OpenStack cloud for NFV, the following key design principles will be discussed:

  • Resiliency & Performance at Scale
  • Reducing Operational Complexity
  • Integrated Security & Analytics

Additionally, pervasive visibility of NFV environment is critical due to east-west traffic across NFV workloads and increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks. Big Switch’s Big Monitoring Fabric enables advanced visibility and security to the OpenStack NFV cloud. Specifically, we’ll discuss:

  • Out-of-band and inline SDN fabrics for visibility and service chaining
  • Value of DPDK-based service node for advanced services such as Deduplication, Packet Slicing, and RegEx Pattern Matching
  • Dynamic policy creation through event triggered API integration

The Role of Software-based Hyperconvergence within a Software Defined Infrastructure

The Role of Software-based Hyperconvergence within a Software Defined Infrastructure

As the modern data center evolves toward a software-defined infrastructure (SDI), the cost and complexity of storage architectures such as SAN and NAS are becoming an impediment for enterprises striving to be more agile and efficient. However, through the use of software-based hyperconvergence, IT organizations can now greatly simplify their storage environments while reducing cost and vendor lock-in.

Maxta MxSP software delivers a simple, agile and efficient hyperconverged infrastructure solution that can be easily deployed on a wide range of x86 servers using commodity HDDs and SSDs to dramatically lower storage cost and complexity while eliminating traditional storage arrays.

In this presentation, we will discuss the role that Maxta hyperconvergence solutions can play in helping organizations achieve their SDI vision.

Solving the VNF On-boarding Challenge to Accelerate NFV Deployments

Solving the VNF On-boarding Challenge to Accelerate NFV Deployments

This panel will explore and debate the re-use, similarities and differences in the approach to orchestrating and managing SDN and NFV networks for telco, cloud and enterprise. The 'cloudification' of the network has created profound innovation with micro-services, containers and IT DevOps tools now being considered for a broad variety of use cases across all three vertical markets. Traditional MANO solutions are just now starting to comprehend these technologies. In addition, deep requirement differences remain such as the OSS/BSS integration with the NFV-O in telco NFV networks. Can the NFV market converge on a common set of MANO tools and approaches?
