DigitalOcean's Use of OSS in a Fully Routed Datacenter - Carl Baldwin & Kamil Derynski, DigitalOcean

Feedback form is now closed.
DO is undergoing a major overhaul of its droplet network infrastructure to carry traffic over a layer 3 (routed) network. This allows a more scalable, versatile, and fault tolerant cloud network with comparable cost to layer 2 networks.

Open source software is key to all aspects of this transition. Many projects have been leveraged together to make it happen and contributions are going back. Key OSS components include GoBGP, BIRD, Open vSwitch, Chef, Ansible, and many Go libraries created at DO and elsewhere.

Carl and Kamil will detail this journey; one which has been arduous. They will share the pitfalls and innovations that got them here along with all that is left to do. Kamil will go into the design of the underlying eBGP network, how they use automation to manage it, and how open routing software integrates with networking equipment in production. Carl will show how Linux hypervisors connect and describe how each OSS project is used.
