The networking community’s energy in recent years has focused on making networks and network operations more software-driven. But meanwhile, the applications running on network infrastructure are changing, too, and becoming more like a network. Driven by microservice architectures, this talk will explore how these trends are opening new demands and opportunities for networks, across all layers of the stack, with examples in network performance and in verifying self-driving network infrastructure.
