Cloud architectures have become pervasive across data centers, enterprises, and communication service providers, but the “cloud” is more than just architecture, it is also an approach and a mindset. In today’s social, mobile world, cloud applications have to scale dramatically and fail fast or succeed fast, and the new IT infrastructure has to support these requirements.
Sixty-five percent of enterprises today use cloud computing, and more than seventy percent of businesses expect to have external-facing applications in the cloud within the next three years. In this webinar, The New Network Imperative for Today’s Clouds SDxCentral’s Roy Chua looks at the key components and new IP technology that make up standard cloud architectures and outlines the seven most important cloud networking requirements.
In SDxCentral’s conversations with enterprises and service providers, seven main attributes float to the top of requirement for building cloud networks. While there are many cloud flavors, most of them subscribe to the same overall new architecture tenets. The webinar covers the equally important characteristics to successful cloud networks including:
- Scalable and high performance
- Extensible and interoperable
- Policy and automation driven
Combining a variety of virtual and physical components, the networking portion of the cloud solution is much more complicated and comprehensive than typical networking solutions. Most clouds include a network orchestration or virtualization piece that provides abstractions to hide the complexity necessary to maintain and scale these clouds and make them much more manageable.
Clouds and cloud networks will drive a significant shift in the networking market in the years ahead. Check out the webinar to learn more about the main attributes of successful cloud networking, and build a solid foundation for your private, public, or hybrid cloud.
