TEC Event: Software Defined Networks (SDN) and OpenFlow for Fun and Profit
Thursday, December 13, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
On July 23, 2012, VMware bought Nicira for $1.26B validating this revolution in Networking. The folowing week, Oracle acquired Xsigo. Just recently Cisco acquired vCider. Upstarts claim they will commoditize the expensive networking gear sold by the incumbents, with standards like Software Defined Networking (SDN), and OpenFlow (OF).
Google and Facebook already deploy their own scaled-up network hardware and software instead of proprietary offerings of incumbent networking players. Many entrepreneurs are betting on SDN and OpenFlow to change the face of networking, but will they succeed?
