Achieving the Benefits of Open Networking in the Data Center
Open networking offers the ability to break free of vendor lock-in and achieve white box economics. SDN promises automation, reduced OpEx and increased agility. However, the open networking and SDN landscape can be confusing and migrating away from legacy infrastructure can seem fraught with peril. Is the journey worth it?
- What are the benefits of open networking and SDN in the data center?
- How can I safely migrate to a disaggregated white box architecture when I have incumbent vendors deployed throughout my network?
- How do I deploy SDN in my data center and do I need a full hardware refresh to do it?
A contributor to the software-defined networking (SDN) confusion is networking vendors use the term liberally. Sorting through the open networking and SDN maze and determining if these progressive technologies SDN isare right for your enterprise is the goal of Storage Switzerland’s webinar “The Software Matters in Open Networking”. Open Networking and SDN innovator, Pluribus Networks joins Storage Switzerland as we help IT understand Open Networking, how SDN has evolved and how to best implement and leverage it now.
