Tech Talk by Florin Balus (Co-Founder Nuage): Application Services Framework

For this event, we will be hosting Florin Balus who is the co-founder of Nuage Networks


Virtualization and Cloud Platforms are two main technology trends that have made tremendous progress in providing compute automation. Applications and compute services can be instantiated within minutes with a press of a button from a catalog of services similar to the online consumer shopping experience. The assumption here is that the network infrastructure already exists and provides a stable platform to build these services on. However, bringing automation to the networking arena has been slow. Nuage Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) brings that same level of automation to networking as orchestration has to compute and application virtual machines. In this session, Florin Balus (Founder and Head of Product at Nuage) will discuss how it is becoming more important to provide such a framework for the application developer with emphasis on hiding networking constructs from the end user. The presentation will include a demonstration of Nuage VSP that shows how easy it is to create a services template that includes services and compute in combination with any orchestration system
