Roy and I will share the most common SDN use cases we hear about during the Open Networking Summit, how-to-get started with SDN in 2013, and pitfalls to avoid when starting your own SDN adventure – based on our own hands on experience. We will also previewing some new SDxCentral content we’ve created with Arista. (BTW – If you are not in Palo Alto — don’t worry — we’ll share all of the details on SDxCentral later this week OR you can visit the Arista Channel on SDxCentral to learn when Arista will have an event in a city near you).
Then hear Doug Gourley from Arista Networks who’ll talk about what the heck is SDN? Software Defined Networking (SDN) is high on the hype list in the networking world, promising a virtualized environment, software provisioning, simple service deployments, simplified architectures, lower costs, and well, heck, motherhood, apple pie, and America.
In this informative, educational, and non-‘salesy’ session, Arista Net has partnered with Apollo Information Systems to explore when to use SDN technologies, what problems they solve, and how to prepare your infrastructure today so that you have complete freedom of choice in how to solve your IT/business challenges without ever being locked into one vendor.
