Making the Switch to Bare Metal and Open Networking

Eliminating Vendor Lock-in

The future of networking is open software and hardware

It's no surprise that networking is changing. Companies like Google and Facebook have built their hyperscale data centers and pushed to change networking in the same ways that they have changed computing. By decoupling the hardware and software and disaggregating the networking solution value chain, switch hardware vendors have the ability to separately compete and innovate in hardware and software solutions. Meaning, the network is no longer restricted by legacy solutions or cross-vendor incompatibility.

It is clear that this trend is real and has already begun to move the industry in a positive and exciting direction. If you're a network engineer, this is definitely a webinar you won't want to miss.
