Open Networking - The Promise and Pitfalls
IHS is presenting the Open Networking: The Promise and Pitfalls webinar on May 17, 2016.
The trail to open networking with bare metal switching has been blazed by very large scale data center operators such as Google and Facebook, and it is the dominate use case for software-defined networking (SDN) in the data center. Traditional network vendors and startups have packaged the knowledge gained from large-scale data center operators, opening the door for others to participate in a new paradigm for purchasing and deploying data center networks. This model leverages an open and programmable environment that provides choice and is driving innovation in silicon and software technologies all at software speed. This webinar explores the rollout of open networking, discusses the advantages of this approach, shares lessons learned by early adopters, and provides guidelines for purchase-decision makers.
Who Should Attend
Enterprise CIOs, cloud service providers, IT directors and managers, network and cloud administrators, and data center architects. Financial analysts and the media are also encouraged to attend.
