While much has been said about network virtualization, current solutions remain limited to simplistic use cases, restricting services within boundaries of single data centers or virtualized islands. We describe a novel approach that fulfills the promise of massively scalable network virtualization and enables the seamless interconnection of cloud services with existing enterprise environments. Speaker: Scott Sneddon, Principle Solutions Architect, Nuage Networks

  • …but delivering a technology is only part of the solution We need to drive a cultural change…
  • Let’s start with changing the organization
  • When all you have is a hammer…And shift our operational methods Trouble Tickets, Manual Processes
  • Continuous network service delivery DevOps for NetOps Application driven automation Provide a complete toolkit…
  • Help us (netops) get there • Don’t accept the status quo • Empower your netops team to improve the service they deliver to you • Include your network architects early in technology research • Encourage a “blurry” demarcation of responsibilities • Encourage your network engineers to take a codecademy course
  • Programmable, Automated, Seamless Network Virtualization Getting out of the developer’s way
