Containers are a new atomic unit of computing that is ideal for emerging cloud-native, distributed applications. Data center operators are evaluating various container technologies, including Docker, Kubernetes, Mesosphere and Red Hat OpenShift. However, for enterprise-class container deployments, networking needs to be simple, automated, easy to manage and operate at the speed of containers – a feat that traditional box-by-box networking is unable to deliver. With containers having a shorter lifecycle and higher density than VMs, visibility, and troubleshooting for container-to-container connectivity have become very critical.
Can SDN technology address these container networking challenges? Watch this recorded webinar to find out how Big Cloud Fabric is an ideal SDN solution for multi-Container network automation and visibility.
In this webinar, we discussed:
- Big Question #1: How can SDN fabrics simplify and automate container networking?
- Big Question #2: Can multi-container networking with Docker, Mesosphere, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift be deployed and automated simultaneously?
- Big Point #3: How can fabric telemetry be provided in a multi-container environment?
- Demo: Multi-container networking automation and visibility with Big Cloud Fabric
Moderated by Big Switch’s Head of Corporate Marketing, Judy Ash, the panelists included Big Switch's Prashant Gandhi, VP, Product Management, Ganapathi Bhat, Principal Technical Marketing Engineer and Sarath Kumar, Technical Staff member.
