Software Defined Data Center Slidedeck


Software Defined Data Center SlideDeck: Posting a SlideDeck from a presentation while back titled Software Defined Data Centers, if the graphics help anyone with their own presentations have at em! The only different concepts are some public cloud thoughts and scenarios and some analogies to wireless controllers and SDN deployments.

Not all networks must be built the same. We have at least three very different type of networks today. The data center, service provider and enterprise. I use MPLS for all three of them for scalable virtualization but that often comes at a premium in price. The deck has some ideas on what are some of the problems and some topologies of SDN/OpenFlow deployments that some of us have in pockets of production.

This was great, thanks for posting. I would also be interested in having the audio to go with the slides too.
