September 22-24

Title:

NGINX and OpenStack a Powerful Combination

Abstract:

We all know that OpenStack and NGINX are two hugely popular open source projects, but did you know they make a great pair? In this session, we’ll show how NGINX integrates with OpenStack Networking’s load balancer service via the open source Akanda project. The combination benefits users via instant access to a managed NGINX installation. Using the current Akanda and OpenStack releases, we’ll demonstrate the simple process for developers to build upon NGINX when deploying on OpenStack. We’ll also see how OpenStack users can access the powerful features of NGINX+ and close with a sneak peek to the new features in the upcoming OpenStack Liberty release (due in October).
