Broadcast on: 3rd Sept 2020

Data center operators, whether xSP or enterprise, typically already manage multiple data centers today. With corporate acquisitions this can increase the number of data centers under management - whether on prem or in colocation facilities. Furthermore, the number of data centers will likely continue to increase as edge compute moves from the investigation and design phase into production. In this webinar we will address how software defined networking (SDN) automation combined with open networking can provide a cost effective and operationally scalable approach to running a multi-site data center network.

How do I get in on the action?

This Webinar

Join us for Automating Distributed Data Centers with Controllerless SDN and Open Networking, the seventh in our It's Open Networking webinar series where our Systems Engineer, Barry McGinley, help simplify open networking for all.

What you can
expect to learn:

  • How open networking plus an SDN-automated data center fabric can be used to realize data center unification to increase agility while lowering costs.
  • The important difference between traditional controller-based SDN and controllerless SDN and why it matters.
  • Why overlay networks can be powerful allies for data center automation and techniques to radically simplify management and lower costs.
  • Key attributes that you should look for in a multi-site data center solution including slicing/segmentation, telemetry/visibility and multi-tenancy.

EPS Global

Open networking solutions are based on open standard, bare-metal hardware with a choice of open software for Software-Defined Networking, virtualization, and cloud orchestration. It was first adopted by hyperscalers to avail of the centralized network management, CapEx and OpEx savings, but mainstream adoption is accelerating as customer motivations are stronger and the barriers to entry are lower.

EPS Global sits at the center of the open networking ecosystem, bringing together the hardware and open NOS software to provide turnkey solutions for any use case, delivering value and expertise to your business. Our engineers can advise you on the best product set to suit your business needs, offering software configuration and bundling of solutions for hassle-free, consolidated shipments.
