Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

A Network Computing Webinar:
SDN First Steps

Thursday, August 8, 2013
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will help attendees understand the overall concept of SDN and its benefits, describe the different conceptual approaches to SDN, and examine the various technologies, both proprietary and open source, that are emerging. It will also help users decide whether SDN makes sense in their environment, and outline the first steps IT can take for testing SDN technologies.

Packets Are the Past, Flows Are the Future

November 14, 2012
Networking has focused for years on speeds and feeds: how many packets you can handle and how many ports per device. But hosts and applications work with flows, which will force the network to adapt. Here’s why.

Big Switch's OpenFlow Controller Guns for SDN Leadership

November 13, 2012
Big Switch Networks, an ambitious start up in software-defined networking (SDN), has launched a new controller and a pair of networking applications that have the potential to drive OpenFlow-based networks into the mainstream.

VMware Does Complicated Dance With Open Source

November 09, 2012
When it comes to thinking about the future data center, it's well understood that servers and storage will function as pools of virtualized resources that can automatically switch from task to task. Networking is a much harder nut to crack. It remains unvirtualized and has lagged far behind the other two. But without it, we'll never get to the flexible, automated data center of the future envisioned as a "private cloud." That's why I sat down to talk to Martin Casado, the former Stanford grad student whose PhD thesis turned into the OpenFlow networking protocol. Casado co-founded virtual networking firm Nicira, which soon became the lead contributor to OpenStack's virtual networking project, Quantum. VMware bought Nicira for $1.26 billion in July -- not bad for a young company with 100 employees. I'd asked Casado to explain how Nicira was going to continue to lead development of virtual networking in OpenStack, since open source OpenStack competes directly with VMware to manage the virtualized part of the data center that's implementing automated self provisioning, elastic expansion and chargeback -- the private cloud part.

SDN Startup Midokura Takes on IT Giants

October 18, 2012
Midokura this week announced its MidoNet software, which promises to virtualize networks to enable infrastructure as a service.

Mellanox Makes SDN Move with New Switches
