Software-Defined Data Center Track

One of the most significant benefits that cloud computing offers is the ability to abstract IT resources to allow more flexible and efficient use. For Cloud Connect Silicon Valley 2013 we're improving your learning efficiency with a conference abstraction that brings together the many facets of one of the critical technologies for future cloud deployment scale and agility. The Software Defined Networking (SDN) Virtual Track™ covers the compute, network, and infrastructure pieces of this very important new technology. As cloud deployments grow in size, the networks that interconnect them have become a stumbling block. SDN promises to make the creation and management of interconnect as agile as compute and storage have become. The truths about SDN's impact and how it works have been obscured in a fog of hype and the SDN track will give you the information that you need to understand what's real today, where it fits in your cloud strategy, and where it's headed.

The sessions that make up the SDN track tackle the orchestration impacts in cloud frameworks, as well as the different network technologies involved. It lays a solid foundation of understanding with an introduction to the fundamentals and heads in to detailed discussions, delivered by the leading innovators and practitioners in cloud and networking. The content will raise your understanding and give you the tools to make your cloud plans successful.
