About this talk

A compute cloud is a pooled set of virtualized compute and storage resources allocated on demand across many applications. The Cloud Computing market is growing quickly, projected by IDC to become a $42B market in 2012, driven by simple economics of scale: it is cheaper to operate large-scale cloud computing infrastructure accessed across many applications than building traditional silo enterprise datacenters. A core component of cloud computing is a highly scalable, cost-effective, high performance, highly reliable and intelligent networking. In this talk, we review the benefits of cloud computing and describe the requirements of the underlying networking platform that enable these benefits.
