The talk focuses on learnings from building and operating parts of this architecture using open source technologies, and virtualizing workloads that have traditionally been appliances and physical network functions.

The architectural choices made in constructing this environment reflect a long term investment in, and a highly opinionated view of the evolution of computing trends.
