Poppy - A CDN Provisioning Service for OpenStack

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OpenStack operators have many choices when incorporating a Content Delivery Network (CDN) into their infrastructure -- the CDN marketplace has both tried-and-true vendors and up-and-coming upstarts with innovative new features.
But these vendors often have highly-customized and proprietary provisioning APIs. This can be problematic when an operator wishes to support multiple providers -- or swap out one vendor for another. And these challenges spill over to developers who become
forced into codifying the CDN instructions for multiple vendors into their applications. Poppy aims to solve these challenges. Written as a modular, vendor-neutral API, Poppy incorporates a driver-based model that wraps provisioning instructions for all CDN
vendors that support it. Application developers can write their code once, and Poppy will handle all the requisite translations behind-the-scenes. Come and join the Poppy team's Collaboration Day as we talk about what has been accomplished over the past year.
Learn how Poppy is working in a production environment today. Help us define the important features for the next cycle and what you would like to see in Poppy to help your usecases.
