Abstract: Delivering a reliable network to customers is top business priority for Azure Networking. Network misconfigurations can be prevented from degrading reliability by verifying every network configuration change before its deployment. This is a hard problem to solve, given the scale and complexity of today’s networks. We will discuss progress in network verification research in Azure Networking and its applications in production. Joint work with Nuno Lopes, Karthick Jayaraman, Nuno Afonso, Ryan Beckett, Dragos Dumitrescu, Jitu Padhye.
