Either way, the term "software defined" is with us to stay and there is real meaning and value behind it if you look past the hype. Ben Cherian will educate the audience on software-defined networking and the potential for this modern approach.

Panel Summary: Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a hotbed of activity with established players as well as well-funded start-ups tackling the largely unsolved problem of large-scale network virtualization in cloud deployments. OpenStack Quantum provides the foundational interfaces to bring in SDN technologies to the OpenStack environment. The ultimate goal is to finally free applications from being aware of specific networking details (like ports, IP addresses etc) and at the same time reducing the operational costs of managing the switching fabric in the era of cloud and mobile computing. Companies have a variety of approaches and solutions to this. In this panel discussion, Dell will moderate a discussion with experts from Big Switch, Midokura, Dell and others, to talk about the evolution of this exciting new space and its relevance within the OpenStack context.
