|Monday, Aug 28, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. | Islander F, Lower Level||[LDT1844BU] Open Source at VMware: A Key Ingredient to Our Success and Yours |
Open-source components are part of practically every software product or service today. VMware products are no exception. And increasingly, IT departments are presented with many application roll-out requests that include large open-source components as part of the infrastructure on which they rely. From OpenStack to Docker to Kubernetes and beyond, open source is a reality of the enterprise environment. VMware is investing in open source both as a user of many components (and contributor to many of those projects) and as a creator of many successful open-source projects such as Open vSwitch, Harbor, Clarity, and many more. This session will talk about the what, the why, and the how of our engagement in open source: our vision and strategy and why all this is critically important for our customers.

CloudsDecided it’s time to implement OpenStack to build your Cloud? Have you tested in the lab, evaluated the various distributions available, and hired a specialized team for OpenStack? However, when it arrives the time to put into production Neutron is not integrating with your physical network? If the above story closely resembles what you have been facing, this TechTalk is critical for you to understand the challenges of Networking and Security with any OpenStack distribution and what solutions are missing for your Cloud to fully works. NOTE: Community TechTalk taking place in VMvillage.
|Tuesday, Aug 29, 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. | Mandalay Bay Ballroom B, Level 2||[NET1338BU] VMware Integrated OpenStack and NSX Integration Deep Dive |
OpenStack offers a very comprehensive set of Network and Security workflows provided by a core project called Neutron. Neutron can leverage VMware NSX as a backend to bring advanced services to the applications owned by OpenStack. In this session we will cover the use cases for Neutron, and the various topologies available in OpenStack with NSX, with a focus on security. We will walk you through a number of design considerations leveraging Neutron Security Groups and the NSX Stateful Distributed Firewall integration, along with Service Chaining in NSX for Next Generation Security Integration, all available today.
|Wednesday, Aug 30, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. | Surf A, Level 2||[FUT3076BU] Simplifying Your Open-Source Cloud With VMware |
Open source or VMware? Clearly, you can’t have both, right? Wrong. As open-source, cloud-based solutions continue to evolve, IT leaders are challenged with the adoption and implementation of large-scale deployments such as OpenStack and network function virtualization from both a business and technical perspective. Learn how VMware’s solutions can simplify existing open-source innovation, resulting in new levels of operations, standardization (app compatibility), and delivery of enterprise support.
|Wednesday, Aug 30, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. | Surf A, Level 2||[FUT1744BU] The Benefits of VMware Integrated OpenStack for Your NFV Platform |
Communication Service Providers (CSPs) embracing network functions virtualization (NFV) are building platforms with three imperatives in mind: service agility, service uptime and platform openness. These capabilities require the cloud platform they choose to be able to easily model, deploy and modify a service, to run it on a tightly-integrated robust virtual infrastructure and migrate the service horizontally across cloud platforms when/if needed. Come to this session to learn about VIO, a VMware-supported OpenStack (OS) distribution, at the heart of the VMware NFV platform and how it can help CSPs meet those requirements. We will look in detail at the role of VIO as virtual infrastructure manager as well as its native integration with the other components of the VMware software-defined data center architecture (vSphere, NSX and VSAN).
