SDN and OpenStack: Shaping the Future of Cloud Networking Innovation
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a hotbed of activity with companies tackling the largely unsolved problem of large-scale network virtualization in cloud deployments. OpenStack Quantum provides the foundational interfaces to bring SDN technologies to OpenStack environments. The goal is to free applications from being aware of specific networking details while reducing operational costs for managing the switching fabric in cloud and mobile computing.
Rafael Zamora introducing Dr. Shen, Cloudmosa
Accelerating the Web Experience
Dell customer, CloudMosa, faced a challenge when they needed a scalable, highly efficient computing infrastructure to provide cloud-based processing power for its Puffin mobile web browser. After collaborating on options available, CloudMosa founder, Dr. Shioupyn Shen, worked with Dell to deploy Dell™ PowerEdge™ C5220 microservers, equipped with Samsung memory and storage, in a colocation data center.
Dell Mobility Solutions
