Session: "Operating OpenStack on a Budget"

Interest in deploying private clouds based on OpenStack is on the rise, however the default networking option in OpenStack remains broken and the plethora of confusing plug-ins makes networking in OpenStack mysterious and difficult to manage. This session will show how Blue Jeans Networks uses MidoNet to cost-efficiently build, run and manage large scale virtual networks in OpenStack clouds.
