It’s been a great year for SDxCentral, and we’re looking forward to an even better 2018. The editors got together to share a little holiday cheer (After all, our CEO Matt Palmer is into wine making, so there’s always lot of cheer to be found). And we decided to ask Santa to fulfill our fondest wishes for 2018 (as they pertain to SDN, NFV and all the fun things we cover).
First and foremost, we’ve all bought .00000003 bitcoins, and we’re hoping to make our fortunes and retire in 2018.
We’re asking for at least 10 new SD-WAN startups because we just don’t get to write about this topic enough.
We hope our tech community continues to amaze us with excellent acronyms. In 2017, we were especially fond of the acronym SNAPS, courtesy of CableLabs. It stands for “SDN/NFV Application development Platform and Stack.”
And speaking of names, we ask that VMware come up with more product names that start with a “v.”
To our lovely public relations colleagues, if there’s one thing we adore it’s looking at a 30-slide Power Point presentation, while listening to five different people talking on a conference call, as we try to type. Keep up the good work.
We hope the Kubernetes community will go full Kardashian and petition Webster’s Dictionary to change the official spellings to “kontainers” and “kommunity.”
Finally, we enjoyed all the year-end tweets from Juniper Networks with the #simpleAF hashtag. If only networks could be that simple. Bring on more fun hashtags in 2018, Juniper!
Happy Holidays from the editors at SDxCentral
