Mr Julian Palmer (Corero Network Security)
Detecting and mitigating today’s DDoS threats, in real-time, requires in-line inspection with ultra-efficient packet processing. Increasingly, this includes the need for virtualised security functions, as well as, or instead of, physical appliances. This session covers some of the techniques used to deliver high-performance platform-agnostic DDoS protection.
Mr Stuart Clark (Cisco Systems)
Configuration management is not just about backing up configs into source control. Leveraging tools like Ansible, Salt, Chef or Puppet allow you to interact with the configuration of network devices via abstraction and automated framework to save us from the pitfalls of "Finger Defined Networking". Scripts are a great first step to automation, but they require maintenance and strong...
Mr Tarus Balog (The OpenNMS Project)

This presentation will present three of them: 1. **Newts**: [Newts] is a new time-series database built on top of Apache Cassandra. It adds new levels of performance...
Mr Chris Russell (UKNOF)
This presentation discusses deployment of a RIPE Atlas probe, or more specifically the deployment of an IPv6 network for the sole reason to support the Atlas probe. We'll cover the anatomy of the project, some lessons learned, some war stories and why we ultimately made it happen.
