Brocade is active in the OpenStack community. This year our team members have collaborated with several partners and customers to offer pragmatic and future-looking talks on a range of topics, from the relationship of OpenStack and the OpenDaylight Project to new techniques in NFV management and Fibre Channel Zone Management. We invite you to vote for those of most interest to you.
In the span of just over one year “Network Functions Virtualization” (NFV) went from a non-existent term to a dominant theme at Mobile World Congress. For a trend to skyrocket from absolute obscurity to being showcased at the world’s largest networking show is a very rare phenomenon.
The importance of Intel to the NFV movement cannot be overstated. At the root of agility and economics is an open ecosystem system of software with a common, powerful, highly economical hardware platform to leverage. The hardware must be able to be delivered in a variety of form factors given the wide variety of network infrastructure that exists, but it’s crucial that there be an architectural similarity in order for the software ecosystem to thrive.
