Steps to a Cloud Ready Data Center

Time 04/27/10 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

This session will present a three step approach to Cloud Ready the Data Center: Simplify, Share & Secure. Simplify -- create simple, scalable data center networks to facilitate resource pooling; Share -- enable network virtualization; Secure -- enable virtualized security services to secure the cloud. Current network architectures do not address the unique security and network issues which arise from cloud computing and virtualization. Together the approaches used to Simplify, Share and Secure in the data center make efficient and scalable cloud computing possible and affordable. Examples will be provided of specific improvements in delivery of services, user experience, operational complexity, security performance and ability to scale. Specific university customer case studies will be included. In summary, this session will present a new way to: tackle moving to cloud computing and more flexible service delivery; re-think networking & security for the data center in light of the benefits and challenges which cloud computing will bring; and apply the lessons of server virtualizing to effective network and security virtualization.
