How Data Center Convergence, Virtualization and Cloud will Impact Optical DWDM Networks.

Time 04/20/11 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

Converged Infrastructure solutions transform IT technology silos into interoperable, shared pools of resources consisting of servers, storage and network connectivity. A common management platform manages and automates operations for all applications and infrastructure components which have a direct impact on optical networks within and between data centers and the Cloud.

Converged Infrastructure components are virtualized to increase utilization and flexibility and are orchestrated to increase agility and reduce operational costs by flattening the data center. They are resilient to support mission-critical applications and increase business continuity. They should be based on open industry standards to provide choice.
In this Panel, we will discuss with IBM, ADVA Optical Networks and Level3 their views on Data Center Convergence, Virtualization and Cloud and their impact on DWDM optical networks.
