As resources and workloads move to public and private cloud models, the network can become desparate and often difficult to manage, let alone automate. With the environment now distributed on multiple platforms, visibility and control must become centralized and pervasive across board.
The perimeter has expanded from the traditional data centre walls to anywhere remote assets are located. Operators need an efficient way to manage networking and security requirements for virtual machines, containers and really, any item to connect to the network, whether ephemeral or persistent.
Software-Defined networking (SDN) provides a highly flexible and programmable way to automate provisioning, while providing a single, logical network across multiple DC’s and cloud environments
Leveraging SDN to secure and connect to OpenShift deployments in the public cloud
Join Arctiq, Nuage Networks and Red Hat as we explore real world use cases of Ansible to automate SDN in public cloud, scale and deploy policies from a centralized, programmable interface.
This technical and interactive session will focus on highlighting the benefits of SDN and integration between the Nuage Networks platform and Red Hat OpenShift.
Demos will show actual configurations using Ansible as well as application flows, status and deployments in Arctiq’s typical “technology-first” style:
- Introduction to SDN
- What? Why? How?
- Nuage Introduction (quick component overview, and typical deployment topology)
- Brief Architecture Overview
- Deployment Requirements and Topology
- Micro segmentation and application flow visibility
- Security - End to End Encryption
- Secure connection to/from Openshift
- Use Case Demos
- Create networks and security constructs
- Deploy Openshift Application
- View application flow info
With the move to public cloud, deploying applications and workloads across multiple providers, it can be challenging to find a single solution to provide network automation, connectivity and management. Nuage Network Virtualized Services Platform VSP provides a virtual, software-based SDN connecting all resources under a single overlay. The network is managed centrally while incorporating security services and avoiding vendor lock-in. Come join us to see the different use cases and technical demos.
Snacks and drinks will be served.
This event is intended for network admins and application engineers interested in learning about SDN and OpenShift integration use cases with Nuage Networks. The demos will highlight use cases for public cloud automation capabilities to deploy Nuage SDN and OpenShift components using Ansible playbooks.
