Scaling in the Cloud: the Hype and Happenings of Software-defined Networking

In the infrastructure space, there is a growing trend of companies calling themselves “software defined (x)”. Often, it’s a vendor that is re-positioning a decades old product. Though on occasion, it’s smart, nimble startups and wise incumbents seeing a new way of delivering infrastructure. Either way, the term “software defined” is with us to stay and there is real meaning and value behind it if you look past the hype.

In this session, Ben Cherian will educate the audience on what software-defined networking is and relay the potential for this modern approach.
