First ONUG Spring Speakers Announced
The Open Networking User Group is a community of IT business leaders who exchange ideas and best practices for implementing Open Networking and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) designs. ONUG events are for IT executives, global network architects, and designers to learn from peers and early adopters managing private or public clouds, enterprise data centers, WAN or service provider networks. Unlike trade shows or industry conferences, the ONUG Conference includes peer-level IT leaders sharing content and plans around real, deployable SDN, OpenFlow, and OpenStack solutions in an interactive setting with no vendors in attendance. The program is designed to ensure plenty of time for networking and open discussions among IT users.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND AN ONUG MEETING:
- Meet IT executives and learn about best practices from peers who have assessed and deployed SDN
- Network with subject matter experts and discuss their views on SDN, open source, and open computing
- Understand if SDN, OpenFlow, OpenStack, virtual overlays, or management visibility tools are right for your organization and key criteria needed to evaluate controllers
- Stay abreast of new disruptive technologies and understand what’s real and what’s hype
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN AT ONUG:
- The economic benefits of SDN: OpEx, CapEx, or both?
- How to justify moving forward with SDN
- Does your staff have the skill sets to implement an SDN and NFV project
- Which SDN applications are delivering the greatest value at the lowest cost?
- How secure is your computer-networking job as SDN deployments accelerate?
