SDN, NFV and Containers Take the Spotlight

28th October drew curtains on the 13th OpenStack summit held in Barcelona, with over 5000 OpenStack enthusiasts, this year’s summit was filled with over 150 sessions focused around the OpenStack ecosystem.

Containers took center stage as the most sought after topic at the summit while SDN and NFV solutions followed closely in second place. Neutron was the 2nd most adopted project in OpenStack cloud deployments with 90% deployments currently using the project in production. Sessions and Hands-On Labs around container networking were filled to the brim where stackers wanted to learn more about container networking in the OpenStack ecosystem. Security, along with operational efficiency, cost and innovation were the most popular topics associated with strategic business solutions in private and hybrid clouds.
