Software Defined Networking

So you have some big data and you want to move it around. One way to do that efficiently is via Software Defined Networking (SDN). Some in the networking and distributed computing industries are angry about it, others are confused, and some are both - some even think it doesn't work at all.

Nonetheless, for example, Google uses SDN to connect its datacenters (http://google-newzealand.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/new-zealand-at-research-cutting-edge.html), and VMware recently announced plans to acquire SDN startup Nicira for over a billion dollars (http://www.vmware.com/company/news/releases/vmw-nicira-07-23-12.html).

In this talk Josh Bailey from Google will describe what SDN is, why he thinks it's interesting, and some of the research being done internationally as well as in New Zealand.

Doors open 5:30pm for a 6:00pm start, should be finished by 8:00pm.

Beer and Pizza provided.
