Software Defined Networks (SDN) and OpenFlow for Fun and Profit

Details and registration : http://tec20121213.eventbrite.com/

On July 23, 2012, VMware bought Nicira for $1.26B validating this revolution in Networking. The folowing week, Oracle acquired Xsigo. Just recently Cisco acquired vCider. Upstarts claim they will commoditize the expensive networking gear sold by the incumbents, with standards like Software Defined Networking (SDN), and OpenFlow (OF).

Google and Facebook already deploy their own scaled-up network hardware and software instead of proprietary offerings of incumbent networking players. Many entrepreneurs are betting on SDN and OpenFlow to change the face of networking, but will they succeed?

TEC invited top industry experts Matt Palmer and Roy Chua (partners at Wiretap Ventures and co-curators at SDN Central) to discuss SDN technology, business and new opportunity for startups.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
