Ancientt Network Testing Tool - Alexander Trost - Cloudical

Let’s talk about the problems, application and network teams are facing in the world of being "agile" and "dynamic". Besides talking about the company political and "philosophical" problems, we are going to look into how the open source project Ancientt can help by automating certain network testing tools. With that we are going explain why Ancientt was created and looking into the future of Ancientt. A (live) demonstration of Ancientt will be given, to show how easy it is to automatically run a network throughput test in a dynamic environment such as Kubernetes / OpenShift.
