How to scale out networking in the cloud: Making a case for Network Virtualization

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limitations of hardware-dependent networks are preventing enterprises from realizing the full potential of cloud computing, and therefore vastly limiting the return on their investment. Traditional networks don't scale in the same way storage and compute resources can scale and the only option generally is to scale up (purchasing bigger networking devices). There are several cons to this approach, such as; it’s not linearly scalable, it is expensive and this approach can cause service interruptions. The solution: virtualize the network.

In this session, Ben Cherian will educate the audience on what network virtualization is and the potential for this modern approach.
