We’re excited to announce a new way to keep you current on developments in software-defined networking (SDN) and application centric infrastructure topics and innovations. A new Cisco Data Center channel is launching today on SDNCentral, providing a focused resource to help you stay informed and educated about SDN and open networking developments and insights from one of the industry’s major players.
The Cisco Data Center channel is part of our SDNCentral SDN Channels – portals dedicated to specific SDN companies and their products, projects, and technologies. SDN Channels provide aggregated content so network operators and practitioners quickly can come up to speed on vendor-specific SDN topics without having to search and sift for relevant content. “Data centers are continuing to drive business and IT transformation. Cisco’s approach to next generation data center and cloud infrastructure focuses on open networking and application centricity, going beyond traditional SDN and overlay network virtualization models” said Shashi Kiran, Senior Director of Data Center and Cloud Networking at Cisco. “Having this resource on SDNCentral is an important way for us to disseminate information to a broad cross-section of knowledge seekers and practitioners in this community as we embark together on this exciting journey.”
The Cisco Data Center channel aims to raise overall education about SDN and open networking throughout the industry – from SDN newbies to those on the cutting edge. Regularly updated by Cisco thought leaders, the channel features:
- Resources to learn about the Cisco Open Network Environment (Cisco ONE) – a cornerstone of the company’s approach to open networking
- Concepts of Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) for next-generation data centers
- Periodic educational webcasts featuring Cisco CTOs, customers and industry experts
- Featured videos, demos and blog posts on technology topics, use-cases and new data center products
We hope you find the Cisco data center channel educational and benefiting not only vendor customers, but also the broader SDNCentral community through the different offerings and perspectives on SDN and open networking.
