Our Nov. 22 DemoFriday™ with Brocade, Infinera and ESnet gets my vote for exemplary collaboration in the software-defined networking (SDN) space. Three teams, two phases, two use cases, and innumerable benefits. In this demo, we will see how OpenFlow, Brocade‘s MLXe Core Routers, and Infinera’s DTN-X converged OTN/WDM optical platform work with ESnet‘s Oscars application to deliver seriously efficient provisioning.
Why watch this demo? Because it’s not shallow “SDN” hype; it’s about automation in data transport and monitoring. OSCARS can identify increasing bandwidth needs before they occur and re-route to the most efficient path between Point A and Point B (and/or C, D, E…).
ESnet isn’t your typical network owner. It’s the Energy Sciences Network, a.k.a. the U.S. Department of Energy’s high-performance networking facility, which uses OSCARS to handle bigger data flows than anything else you’ve likely seen. These “elephant flows” are being managed with such savvy, and it’s a graceful thing to behold.
I encourage you to:
