Ecosystem Talks by SUSE and Citrix
Ecosystem Session 1. 

Bi-modal IT: Bridge Traditional and Agile IT Services by SUSE

If you are in the shoes of traditional IT admin or developer and are looking to be more agile or run the data center in a more agile manner, containers provide the right vehicle. However, you also want the enterprise foundation for your infrastructure so you are not spending time supporting container environment. Learn about how you can collaborate securely to create Docker apps or integrate container applications with cloud or quickly deploy Docker using a minimized host OS.

Ecosystem Session 2.
Load Balancing for Container Cluster Managers by Citrix

Microservices- (and container-) based architectures rely on load balancers for resilience and scaling out. Load balancers need to be just as agile and programmable as any microservice. They need to be spun up on demand, be ephemeral, distributed, cheap and fast. Traditional form factors for load balancers are no match for these demands. Citrix Netscaler CPX is a containerized form-factor load balancer that offers the same APIs and features as the hardware-form-factor Netscaler. The hardware or virtual form factor Netscaler can be used for ingress traffic and the CPX can be used for inter-service traffic. When container cluster managers such as Docker Swarm and Kubernetes are used, these load balancers can be automatically configured using state provided by the cluster managers. The talk will discuss the requirements for container load balancing and how Netscaler CPX together with other models of Netscaler can solve the load balancing problem.
