Overall Session Description
Cloud-based computing will have a major impact on the way that enterprises configure their IT resources over the next several years. By 2015, one of every seven dollars spent on packaged software, server, and storage offerings will involve the public cloud model. To stay competitive in this environment, providers of cloud services will need to move quickly to create and deploy innovative and high-value service offerings. Using the network as foundation, cloud providers will need to invest in next-generation application delivery platforms. Building upon existing performance and scale benefits, application delivery platforms will be instrumental in delivering an operationally efficient, customizable datacenter network.
This webinar will answer the following questions:
•What are key combinations of application delivery attributes that will support agile cloud service creation?
•When is the right time to invest in IPv6?
•What is the role of application delivery controllers within the context SDN (software-defined networks) ?
