BBVA Bank on OpenStack
Due to unproven scalability and security concerns, enterprises take a wait and see approach to Open Source deployments much less OpenStack. Yet, not only are these deployments feasible but also can yield substantial multi tenant efficiency, agility, speed, dynamic and security advantages over legacy frameworks. While a hybrid cloud approach is quite popular for agile services delivery, for some enterprise segments a private cloud is essential in order to comply with regulations.
In this session, we will explore how Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (BBVA), a Spain-based global financial group, banks on OpenStack. BBVA has designed an automated, multi tenant service Cloud that provides:
- Efficient, granular security: Via a global policy framework from Nuage Networks
- Agility: Via utilization of KVM as a virtualization hypervisor
- Speed: Provisioning and delivery of services in near real-time via the RedHat OpenStack distribution
Moreover, we show the integration of Neutron based on external SDN overlay solutions in order to improve the networking and security functionalities.
This will be an eye-opening session you can bank on it! (Seguro que si!)
