This workshop examines the relationship between Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Virtualization. Also discussed will be the key enabling technologies, the initial set of use cases and the go to market strategy of key vendors. Over the last year, the hottest topics in networking have been Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Virtualization (NV). There is, however, considerable confusion amongst enterprise IT organizations relative to these topics. There are many sources of that confusion, including the sheer number of vendors who have solutions that solve different problems using different solution architectures and technologies, all of whom claim to be offering SDN and/or NV solutions.
This beginner to intermediate level, enterprise-focused workshop will cut through that confusion by presenting a top down approach to SDN and NV that starts by identifying the problems and opportunities that SDN and NV help to address. The workshop will also identify the primary characteristics of SDN and NV solutions, the relationship between SDN and network function virtualization (NFV) and how all of these approaches do or do not help IT organizations respond to the key problems and opportunities facing enterprise IT organizations. Included in the workshop will be a moderated debate amongst some leading-edge vendors as well as an analysis of the approach to SDN and NV that is being taken by a dozen key vendors. The workshop will conclude by presenting an outline of a plan that IT organizations can use to get ready for SDN and NV.
