NET7388-S - Network Virtualization: Moving Beyond the Obvious

When server virtualization first came to market, few understood the implications of its disruptive nature. Now, with tens of billions of dollars in customer savings achieved, and over 80 percent of all workloads virtualized, it’s clear server virtualization has fundamentally changed the way the IT operates, and in turn, transformed our industry. Network Virtualization promises the same transformative impact to change data center economics. To date, the network virtualization conversation has focused on well-documented and customer-proven benefits of agility, flexibility and cost improvements. This is the story of the last few years. In this talk, Martin Casado will outline the next horizon for network virtualization.
