migration, feature implementations and enhancements to Openstack LBaaS.


Some of the areas we will discuss are listed below:

  • Multi-Region, Muti-VPC Deployment Architecture

  • Migration Challenges (from legacy to LBaaS). Filling gaps. Challenges for hitless migration

  • Advanced health monitoring

  • New Horizon LBaaS UI (demo)

  • North-South and East-West Load Balancing

  • Hardware LB device integration with LBaaS in overlay network (Also, deployment in SDN environment)
