Ever wondered about how users can create their own virtual networks to connect to their VMs in the cloud? Software Defined Networks (SDN) are much more than the latest buzz word, they are helping to revolutionize the way IT builds systems. In this session you will learn how OpenStack accomplishes this functionality. This will be a technical session where we will learn how separate arbitrary networks are created on a fixed underlying physical network. We will investigate Open vSwitch and it key in making software defined networks (SDN) possible. We will see how networks are kept separated and isolated, while coexisting in the physical network. Come and learn about the latest in OpenStack's SDN efforts.
