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

Presented by

Prashant Gandhi and Bala Ramachandran of Big Switch Networks; Glenn Rudolph of Red Hat

About this talk

NFV deployments represent some of the most demanding workloads in OpenStack clouds, yet the economic and operational promise of NFV makes this a high-value technical challenge for service providers worldwide. In this webinar we will discuss a joint solution based on Big Switch’s SDN Fabrics (for cloud and for visibility) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform 7 for a large NFV deployment at tier-1 US telecom provider. For deploying OpenStack cloud for NFV, the following key design principles will be discussed: •Resiliency & Performance at Scale •Reducing Operational Complexity •Integrated Security & Analytics Demo : OpenStack Network Automation 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 •Intel DPDK-based service node for advanced services such as De-deduplication, Packet Slicing, and RegEx Pattern Matching •Dynamic policy creation through event triggered API integration Demo : Advanced Network Visibility
