Let's face it - container networking sucks. Adding orchestration tools like Kubernetes, Swarm and Mesos only compounds the problem. Not happy to accept this reality? Neither were we. Learn how networking became the biggest blocker for getting containers to production at Lithium Technoloiges and how we overcame it using OpenContrail. This meetup will go into detail of how you can use OpenContrail to solve your container network woes. It's hands on so bring a laptop and get your hands dirty. Expect to leave knowing how to run up a test Kubernetes with OpenContrail environment on your favorite cloud provider.
