Zemlin’s career spans three of the largest technology trends to rise over the last decade: mobile computing, cloud computing and open source software. Today, as executive director of The Linux Foundation, he uses this experience to accelerate the adoption of Linux and support the future of computing.
Zemlin works with the world’s largest technology companies, including IBM, Intel, Google, Samsung, Qualcomm, and others to help define the future of computing on the server, in the cloud and on a variety of new mobile computing devices. His work at the vendor-neutral Linux Foundation gives him a unique and aggregate perspective on the global technology industry.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are hot areas of innovation that are bringing unbelievable benefits to the different components of IT infrastructure, said David Meyer, Chairman of the Board at OpenDaylight, a Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation, in his presentation at the DevOps Networking Forum last month. And while it’s still unclear, how networking projects will actually incorporate machine learning and AI, these technologies are coming soon to the networking industry.

Keynote: Scaling the S in SDN - Albert Greenberg, Director Azure Networking and Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft Get the latest on SDN & NFV. Access more than 175 recorded sessions from Open Networking Summit 2016: http://bit.ly/21Dx79V
In the past several years, the cloud network was transformed and rebuilt in software using SDN – Microsoft Azure has been built on these technologies, enabling greater flexibility and programmability than ever before. Our focus today is on scale, density, and utilization of the programmable network, pushing our infrastructure to meet the demands of today’s massive cloud environments with millions of servers, and new cloud-based workloads.
We introduce the Virtual Filtering Platform, Azure’s programmable dataplane, in which we’ve scaled up the match action table model to support modern high density servers with more than 40Gbps of bandwidth, while providing the programmability for our many controllers and SDN applications to create new virtual networking functions. We are announcing that VFP, which has been key to scaling our infrastructure, will be made available to the public with Windows Server 2016 to support high density private cloud environments using Azure Stack on premises.
As an example of how new workloads push us to scale further, much of the industry is moving to containerized workloads and microservice architectures. To support this, we have built native integration to extend Azure virtual networking features directly to containers, across Linux and Windows, using our flexible SDN stack. We announce and demo several of these new networking features, as part of the Azure Container Service, allowing customers to deploy and manage containers using several popular open source container orchestrators.
