In this episode we talk a second time to network architect Andrey Khomyakov, who’s helped his organization make the transition from traditional to open networking in production.
Our first chat with Andrey was in Weekly Show 399. The way it worked out, that ended up being a mostly hardware conversation, which made some of you very grumpy, and you aimed packets at us with the evil bit set.
Today, we want to drill into the management and operations side of things and complete our open networking in production conversation. If you’re still grumpy after this episode, maybe it’s time to start your own podcast.
We discuss the network stack and the infrastructure environment Andrey works within, look at ongoing operational issues, examine how Andrey and his team use automation, and look at the staffing and training impacts of open networking.
