Also joining us for this event is Raphael Vincent Rosa from RouteFlow who will talk about use of SDN routers in Internet eXchange Points (IXPs).


Talk 1

CPLANE NETWORKS: High Performance OpenStack Networks

OpenStack is HOT! No doubt about it. A recent survey by The New Stack and The Linux Foundation shows OpenStack as the most popular open source project ahead of other hot projects like Docker and KVM. OpenStack is now taking its rightful place as the open source cloud solution for enterprises and service providers.

To date OpenStack networking has not yet achieved the performance, scalability and reliability that many large enterprises demand. CPLANE NETWORKS solves that problem by delivering secure multi-tenant virtual networking that overcomes the limitations of the standard Neutron networking service. By making all networking services local to the compute node and achieving near line-rate throughput, CPLANE NETWORKS Dynamic Virtual Networks (DVN) delivers mega-scale networking for the most demanding application environments.

In this session John Casey will cover the basics of DVN and explain how CPLANE NETWORKS achieves “at scale” network performance within and across data centers.

Talk 2

RouteFlow & IXPs

This talk will discuss the architecture of RouteFlow which is a leading OpenFlow based virtual router. It will focus on the new projects based upon RouteFlow which are finding traction in Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) – Cardigan being one of the most popular one. Some common aspects of IXPS will be shown. The talk will conclude with a list of future projects and vision of SDN routing.
