[SDx Webinar] Next-Gen Networking for Hybrid and Multi-Cloud

April 17, 2018
Enterprise IT is under increasing pressure to increase agility so that traditional companies can survive the onslaught from nimble cloud-based competitors. The number of store closures in Retail is a glaring example. This webinar focuses on key findings from the recently published SDx Central survey on next-generation data center architectures and approaches that Enterprises are taking to keep one step ahead of the competition.

As Enterprises are moving increasing numbers of Apps to the public cloud, evidenced by the recent statistics shared by Amazon and Microsoft in the most recent earnings call on AWS and Azure growth, the need to develop hybrid cloud and Multi-cloud management strategies is clear. One important consideration in Hybrid cloud planning is the question of how to deliver network agility to the traditionally most risk-averse and brittle component in the data center stack: datacenter networking.
 
Learn how cloud-native networking supports Multi-cloud management across private networks & public cloud VPCs, through a unified management interface.  Hyper-scale inspired networking principals pioneered by Facebook & Google are now being adopted by mainstream enterprises to achieve significant operational efficiencies, reduced CapEx, and increased vendor choice.
 
Traditional networking solutions based on a switch by switch CLI management are being replaced by SDN-based fabric solutions with integrations with VMware, OpenStack, and Red Hat Open Shift container orchestrators for increased network agility and flexibility.  Learn how Enterprises are effectively deploying technologies like hyper-converged systems, heterogeneous virtualized environments, containers, and SDN to achieve flexibility, agility and workload mobility between on-premise and public cloud environments. 
 
Key takeaways include:
  • Learn how cloud-native networking supports Multi-cloud management across private networks & public cloud VPCs, through a unified management interface.
  • Hyper-scale inspired networking principals pioneered by Facebook & Google are now being adopted by mainstream enterprises to achieve significant operational efficiencies, reduced CapEx, and increased vendor choice.
