Boost IT visibility and business value

Podcast

speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

It's another episode of El Reg's enterprise techcast with The Dude of Tech Greg Knieriemen, storage meister Ed Saipetch and new media maven Sarah Vela. Their special guest is Greg Ferro of the Packet Pushers Podcast and EtherealMind.com, who gives us the skinny on software defined networking and what the big players are doing in the sector. It's kind of awesome - really interesting, thoughtful stuff... Do yourself a favour and put your headphones on.

This week, Ed is on another secret mission while Sarah is back and refreshed from her vacation.

This week we discuss…

  • Sarah's holiday
  • Catch-up with Ferro
  • Cisco's Acquisition of Meraki and premature blog posting
  • Defining Software Defined Networking
  • Xsigo and Vyatta's SDN washing
  • OpenStack as orchestration for SDN
  • Big Switch vs Nicira
  • Cisco's SDN play
  • Nicira and SDN - not for the enterprise
