How Cloud Management and SDN Killed the Traditional Enterprise LAN

Presented by

Paul Congdon, CTO, Tallac Networks

About this talk

A colleague of mine recently mashed up a famous R.E.M song for his blog. He reworked the famous lyrics to say, “It’s the end of the LAN as we know it… And I feel fine”. He couldn’t have been more spot on. As IT resources continue to move to the cloud, traditional infrastructure and the processes associated with running it are literally going out the window. One of the last IT resources to still make the migration to the cloud is the Enterprise LAN. However, since everything else is moving to the cloud, the way we use our LAN is changing. The actual critical IT resources still on the LAN have changed. Cloud management and Software Defined Networking are making it possible to radically simplify your Enterprise LAN – perhaps to the point where you can pay someone else to operate it. Tallac Networks is defining the SD-LAN ecosystem and is behind the next wave of the cloud movement – management and control of the Enterprise LAN.
