7:00 - 8:30pm Presentation then Panel Discussion and Q&A
VMware's $1.26B acquisition of Nicira on July 23, 2012, uncovered great venture opportunities in network technologies. Upstarts claim they will wrest control of Networks from the giants like Cisco and Juniper through software management and hardware standards, leading to the "commoditization" of network equipment. Will today's high-end switches go the way of the mainframe? Already, Google and Facebook have been developing their own solutions away from the proprietary offering of incumbent players. Many entrepreneurs are now exploring these new opportunities. VLAB engages a robust debate.
- Are we ready for chasm crossing?
- Is Software Defined Network (SDN) the next technology shift, or just a niche?
- Is the networking industry ready for a paradigm shift?
- Are incumbents aligned with the SDN spirit?
- Are we to have a win- win- between users and vendors?
- Where are the opportunities?
Join us to learn more.
