Nick Lippis

Co-founder and co-chairman, ONUG




The Open Networking market has continued to change rapidly between each ONUG semi-annual conference. The definition of Open Networking has expanded to include white box networking, network virtualization or overlays, programmable networks, software-defined wide area networking, Open IP Storage and automation plus auto provisioning via Linux. Open Networking is now increasingly being viewed as the key technology to enable software defined data centers to reap its economic efficiency and self-service provisioning promise. In this keynote, Nick will discuss the state of the open networking market and share deployment status gathered from the ONUG community.
