by Harley Stagner on August 28, 2012

This is the Live Blog of INF-NET2161 — VMware Networking 2012 — Enabling the Software Defined Network. You’ll find my recap of the session below.

Speakers:

  • Milin Desai — VMware, Inc. — Product Management, Networking
  • Sachin Thakkar — VMware, Inc. — Manager, Networking and Security R&D

Software Defined Networking must provide an abstraction layer for the network similar to the way there is a hardware abstraction layer for virtual machines today. The goal is an operationally efficient environment to provision networks quickly and on-demand. With the release of vSphere 5.1 you can define logical networks with features such as vShield Edge, App, and Endpoint, and utilizing vXLAN technology. The vCloud ecosystem framework will allow 3rd party partners to participate in Software Defined Networking with their own solutions. You can configure a vDC in minutes.
