SDN Networking: Making SDN a Reality. Catch the Video of Arista Networks SDN Essentials Seminar
A few weeks ago, the SDxCentral team joined Arista Networks and Apollo Information Systems for a practical, informative lunch seminar on SDN fundamentals. Here’s a video of the event so you can take a look at what you may have missed. We cover when to use SDN technologies, what problems they solve, and how to prepare your infrastructure today.
Arista Vice President of Marketing, Doug Gourlay opens the seminar by talking about how different groups define SDN, underscoring the quickly changing nature of the industry today. Emphasizing the importance of using SDN to solve very specific business issues – as opposed to acquiring the technology for its own sake – Gourlay goes over OpenFlow scalable tap aggregation as one current SDN application that generates ROI and saves money.
After Gourlay’s presentation, we take a realistic look at where the SDN market is today and how customers are using it in the real world. For example, SDN in visualization and tap shows early promise, but it is not yet ready for production for most other use cases except in customized solutions. We cover what to expect in the market in the next 12 to 18 months so you can plan what to do for your own business.
