net7388-s network virtualization: Moving beyond the obvious

Speaker(s): Martin Casado, VMware

Moscone West, level 2, rooM 2002

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, its clear server virtualization has fundamentally changed the way 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. He will detail how network virtualization will enable advanced capabilities such as network visibility and troubleshooting, security, and network-wide policy. Attendees will leave with the knowledge and understanding of how this next chapter in the evolution of virtualization technology will unfold.
