PLUMgrid Shares Virtual Network Infrastructure Design, Security Integration and Performance Benchmarking Results with OpenStack Community at OpenStack Summit Atlanta

OpenStack Summit - PLUMgrid, OpenStack Summit 2014 sponsor and the leader in Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI), is exhibiting and presenting at the OpenStack Summit being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, May 12-16, 2014.

The PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite is a secure virtual networking product for large-scale OpenStack clouds. Built using PLUMgrid Platform and IO Visor™ technology, it provides an easy and simple solution to build cloud infrastructure at scale and offer secure, multi-tenant network services to OpenStack cloud users. Based on a highly automated workflow, the PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite enables applications and users to deploy private Virtual Domains™ in seconds without changing the physical network fabric.

In addition to exhibiting PLUMgrid product offerings in Booth #E11 on May 12-14, PLUMgrid is also presenting:

       

“Easily Build Complex Network Topologies with Virtual Domains, and Security Sneak Peak”

Where: Demo Theater, Expo Hall (Level 1)
When: Wednesday, May 14, 2:00 – 2:15 PM ET
 
Fawad Khaliq, MTS, PLUMgrid, will showcase how the right Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI) removes weeks of manual provisioning, network meltdowns and the need for expensive hardware equipment while providing an always available, secure and easy-to-provision environment for your services and applications.
 

“The Network as the Security and Policy Enforcement Point in OpenStack Environments”

Where: Room B102
When: Wednesday, May 14, 5:20 – 6:00 PM ET
 

Pere Monclus, Co-founder and CTO, PLUMgrid, will discuss the changing nature of the network as it transitions to new models more suited to the cloud with SDN, NFV and Virtual Network Infrastructure, and the inter-relationship between networking, security and policy enforcement. The presentation will explore why and how security and policy enforcement should be integrated into the networking design of OpenStack cloud environments.

 

 

PLUMgrid (Booth #E11) and Mellanox (Booth #E20) will also demonstrate the performance benchmarking results from the integration of PLUMgrid IO Visor™ and Mellanox ConnectX®-3 Pro. The combined solution resolves the longstanding performance and CPU utilization bottlenecks in cloud overlay networks, delivering an industry-leading traffic processing rate of 40 Gbps.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
