Web-based companies figured out a way to make high-capacity storage infrastructures using low-cost, commodity hardware. While this concept makes sense for large ‘hyper-scale’ companies, it’s not easily implemented by traditional IT organizations. The Open Storage Platform (OSP) is a model that the industry is using to define the hyper-scalers’ approach and provide a roadmap for building highly scalable, economical storage environments.
Join the Evaluator Group for this informative webinar to learn about OSP and what it can do for corporate IT. On the webinar we will:
• Discuss the challenges of implementing hyper-scale infrastructures
• Describe the Open Storage Platform and how it addresses these challenges
• Explain how companies can use OSP to deploy their own private clouds
When the idea of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) started gaining momentum, commercial suppliers answered by each creating their own SDN controller. It became clear that if the industry pooled its efforts, the result would be faster time to market for everyone and help spur innovation. The OpenDaylight open source project was founded in 2013 to create an open, common platform for SDN and to enable NFV and is today considered the industry's de facto standard platform. More than 50 companies are supporting the community's work to build a modular platform that includes traditional and emerging southbound protocols, a common northbound interface, and open APIs. The project's third release called "Lithium" made its debut in June 2015. Here you'll see what progress has been made to-date, and what's in store for Lithium and beyond.Read more >
