Scaling out the data center network
by Adi Naveh

9 years into its existence, with thousands of servers spanning multiple datacenters, Outbrain reached a point where its data center network just wouldn't scale anymore.
In this talk, we would like to share our journey of a complete redesign of our network infrastructure, into a pure L3 fabric network, while successfully addressing the 3 mandatory requirements:
- Scale-out topology without bottlenecks
- Fully redundant, no single point of failure
- Fully automated management

For the last 4 years, he's been focusing on network management and automation.
Prreviously in his professional life, he worked in an Enterprise computing area, managing many medium range infrastructure projects.

If (network == server) { magic happens }
by Attilla de Groot

Automating a server infrastructure with DevOps tools and a CI/CD environment is common today. What if your network acts like a server, can you do the same?

About Attilla:
Attilla has spent the last 15 years at the cutting edge of networking, having spent time with KPN, Amsterdam Internet Exchange, and HP, with exposure to technology from Cisco, HP, Juniper, and Huawei. He now works for Cumulus Networks, the creators of open networking, where he is able to continue his interest in open architecture design and automation.
