Virtualization has made compute infrastructure and storage
infrastructure an order of magnitude more flexible, yielding huge
gains in IT efficiency. However, the network has not achieved the
same efficiency gains. Unlike the advancements in compute and
storage virtualization, networking has not kept pace, and has
become a barrier to achieving the promise of enterprise cloud
computing. As enterprise IT continues its transition to the Cloud
Era, the data center network is once again taking center stage.
Attend this webinar to learn how SDN helps address the challenges of virtualization. You will learn practical tips that can help you get started immediately. Agenda:
• How virtualization impacts the underlying network infrastructure
• Why and how SDN addresses the challenge of virtualization

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.
