What lies beyond virtualization? How do we start the journey to a secure, trusted hybrid platform that truly delivers the business value and velocity we all want?
In the era of software-defined everything, one goal is to reach a fluid infrastructure that has the level of plasticity needed to self heal itself and provide higher level SLAs for applications and services. Adding value to existing applications and services in a transparent fashion requires a rethinking of core technologies in the platform space. In this talk we will take a look at some low level technologies and approaches to achieving this goal. Topics will range from Intelligent layer 7 SDN with semantic awareness, distributed scheduling algorithms, policy distribution and invalidation, health monitoring and management, self healing techniques, and the role of unsupervised deep machine learning and anomaly detection.
