Mopping up network nightmares
Outline/structure of the Session
We will present an account of 3 cases with our previous clients. One client with legacy infrastructure, another a modern world client using openstack, puppet and ansible infrastructure and the third case with the similar infrastructure plus the lxc containers added to the ecosystem.
In case one which is the legacy infrastructure we were struggling with multiple disconnected hosts, port forwarding and firewall issues.
Second one is the connectivity issue because of prod and dev openstack setup disparity.
Third one we have third party ip whitelisting constraints while providing the scalable solutions to the development team to work on.
On surface all the three cases are completely independent to each other but when thought through it comes to a simple networking issues which we resolved it with the simple solutions as tunnelling and vpn.
Problems that look very different at the surface, if thought through can be solved with simple solutions
The devops culture and the tools ecosystem is growing a lot today but the basic age old knowledge of networking is still a must have.
