Clouds and containers offer many benefits, but sometimes limit choices by locking an organization into a particular version of an application or service, a specific operating system, or a chosen management platform. Balancing the need for network stability and security with these anarchistic tendencies can be exhausting. In the face of increasingly aggressive application and deployment schedules that constantly introduce variability into the equation, chaos can ensue.

In this session, we'll explore how you can architect a secure, stable network to support the anarchy of emerging technologies. Additionally, attendees will learn:
• How to use a two-tier network architecture to support per-application and corporate requirements simultaneously
• How an "as code" approach can help take advantage of automation to reduce the burden on NetOps.
