The holy grail for networks is complete network platform automation. The foundation of network platform automation is observability, including telemetry, monitoring, logging, and tracing. The data collected feeds into analytics leading to automated optimization of applications placement. We will discuss specific Intel platform features and show how they can be used with telemetry methodologies to enable network platform automation. One example we will demonstrate is how Telemetry Aware Scheduling and Prometheus optimize performance-sensitive cloud-native workloads placement. We will also touch on our future plans and show opportunities for additional community engagement and involvement. Please join us.
