1,500 Delegates participated to The 2016 SDN & OpenFlow World Congress at the World Forum in The Hague (Netherlands) last fall. The four-day event started with a Workshop Day, featuring content from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), the European Workshop on Software-Defined Networks, and the ETSI NGP Next Generation Protocol Forum. The Congress focused on several familiar names in the software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) ecosystem who spoke at the event. In the several familiar names in the SDN, Peter Coppens, Head of Ethernet & IP Portfolio & Product Management at Colt was one of the speakers for Colt. The spokesperson did a great presentation on "Enabling affordable high bandwidth in the WAN network with SD-WAN." He explained that Colt is rolling out its software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) managed service to 13 countries across Europe, with more countries coming in 2017. Colt uses SD-WAN technology. For customer sites that are directly connected with Colt fiber, bandwidth already scales in a cost-efficient way.

Think open source isn't viable, enterprise-ready, and secure? - Think again.
with Docker Global Hack Day #3 winners Marcos Lilljedahl and Jonathan Leibiusky, Mantika The purpose of the project is to create an external command line tool that can be either used with docker or runC which helps on the task to live migrate containers between different hosts by performing pre-migration validations and allowing to auto-discover suitable target hosts.
With Francesc Campoy, Developer Advocate, Google. This talk covers a range of situations where containers can improve the developer experience by providing a repeatable and consistent environment. This includes from how to help your users become your contributors, to how to install tools in your machine without really installing anything, or how containers can be the killer tool for the polyglot programmer. The goal is to give an overview of the techniques that power these use cases and to inspire the audience to improve their communities by leveraging the power of Docker.
