Beyond the Vendors: Real Campus SDN Implementations
Time 05/16/16 04:30PM-05:30PM
Many IT leaders and decision makers have heard about SDN and are wrestling with its suitability as a technology underpinning academic and/or research environments. Whether driven by an opportunity for decreased costs, increased flexibility or the need for innovative solutions, questions about SDN’s viability abound. Given its adoption by Enterprise users, it’s time to start talking about deployments in campus networks for production traffic, which we define as an implementation on a network for which an SLA exists, and one where outages will cause problems for users.
This session begins with a non-technical panel aimed at technology decision makers outlining two use cases for SDN, one presented by a CIO and one by a Senior Engineer, both exploring lessons learned. The latter part of the session will discuss an SDN use case driven by the demanding needs of scientific workflows which need to be protected within the campus environment.
