Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a hotbed of activity with established players as well as well-funded start-ups tackling the largely unsolved problem of large-scale network virtualization in cloud deployments. OpenStack Quantum provides the foundational interfaces to bring in SDN technologies to the OpenStack environment. The ultimate goal is to finally free applications from being aware of specific networking details (like ports, IP addresses etc) and at the same time reducing the operational costs of managing the switching fabric in the era of cloud and mobile computing. Companies have a variety of approaches and solutions to this. In this panel discussion, Dell will moderate a discussion with experts from Big Switch, Midokura Dell, and others, to talk about the evolution of this exciting new space and its relevance within the OpenStack context.

Executive Welcome: 
Nnamd Orakwue, Vice President, Cloud, Dell

Panel Moderator: 
Joseph B George, Director of Product Strategy for Revolutionary Cloud and Big Data Solutions, Dell

Panel participants:

  • Mike Cohen, Director of Strategic Alliances, Big Switch Networks
