While I’m on the subject of software defined networking (SDN), I’d like to take this opportunity to make you aware of an event that’s scheduled to take place toward the end of this month, running concurrently with this year’s edition of the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Billed interrogatively, “Are Software-Defined Networks Ready for Prime Time?”, the two-day seminar series will unspool at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco on February 28 and 29. Representatives from Indiana University, The Chasm Group, and Wiretap Ventures will discuss real-world lessons derived from the former’s SDN production environment. (Full disclosure: Wiretap Ventures’ Matt Palmer and I were involved in technology-partnership discussions many years ago while working for different employers.)
The seminars are intended for CIOs, CISOs, and CTOs — as well as for security, storage, networking and mobility architects — employed at enterprises, service providers, government agencies, or universities. There will be a technical track that will run on the afternoon of February 28 and again on the morning of February 29, as well as a business track on the afternoon of February 29.
