Intel Network Builders: Carrier-Class Environment for NFV Lifecycle Management
Communications service providers see the potential of a very strong business upside from deploying NFV-based services. NFV promises to lower costs, simplify network operations, and usher in a new era of rapid service innovation. Yet there are still concerns about running mission-critical revenue-generating network functions as software applications on general purpose compute platforms rather than purpose-built appliances.
This webinar will explore what is required to create a carrier class, also known as carrier grade, high-performance environment for hosting virtual network functions. Attendees will learn how to leverage the power of the Intel architecture and the key attributes of management and orchestration needed to support the complete service life cycle in a VNF-agnostic service environment.

Storage technologies, epitomized by Intel's own solid state portfolio, are evolving faster than most organizations are capable of adopting them. In this webinar we'll discuss the dramatic dichotomy facing storage vendors today.
On one hand, they must be absolute geeks: fixated on the gory technical challenges that are involved with getting performance and efficiency out of a set of storage technologies that nobody even dreamed of about ten years ago. On the other, they must completely insulate their customers from this gory technical fixation: successful products must assemble a set of complex and rapidly evolving technologies in a way that makes the business end of storage -- protecting and presenting organizational data -- simpler and more cost-effective than ever before.
