As market demands change business strategies, businesses rely on their networks more than ever to execute those strategies — all at a time when networking is in the midst of the most transformative change in decades. A new webinar from Cumulus Networks brings together industry thought leaders to help you think about the right operation paradigm for your organization and reduce complexity in your network.
Scale and agility have become holy grails in the network space, and everyone is trying to figure out how to get there. The complementary “Demystify Your Network” webinar features panelists from Facebook, VMware, Forrester Research, and Cumulus Networks each who offer their perspectives on the value of an open networking platform and why companies should care about this issue now. Join the following industry leaders as they discuss how to transfer best practices from the compute side to the networking side of the data center:
- Martin Casado, CTO of networking, VMware
- Najam Ahmad, director of technical operations, Facebook
- JR Rivers, co-founder and CEO, Cumulus Networks
- Andre Kindness, principal analyst, infrastructure and operations, Forrester Research
Together the panelists discuss what’s driving change in the data center today and how to extract operational efficiency from the network. They will cover:
- How to reduce degrees of complexity in the network
- What the disaggregation of software and hardware can do for your network
- Why brand should not be a barrier
The panelists address the thorny internal organizational boundaries that can hamper change in the network more than technology itself, and they talk about how they address those constraints in their own organizations. The network touches every part of the business, the speakers agree, and the network must become a catalyst for change in the business itself rather than an isolated tower of the infrastructure.
Sign up here to watch the webinar on-demand and find out how your organization can take advantage of the changes happening in networking. The webinar will only be available until June 17, so check it out today.
