Pica8 Executives Well Represented Again at Ethernet Summit
PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
At the Ethernet Summit in Santa Clara, CA (News - Alert) this week, Pica8 Chief
Architect David Liu reminded attendees yesterday that the ultimate
success of Software Defined Networking (SDN) will be predicated as much
on the ability to provide smooth migration paths as it will be to solve
real-world application delivery problems. As part of his discussion,
"Developing Open-Source (News - Alert) SDN Switches" during the "Design Problems"
panel, Liu maintained that the future for SDN was bright, but said that
the market will develop as quickly as data centers can feel comfortable
tying together their legacy network with their SDN infrastructure.
"New protocols derived from new ways of thinking are changing how we
manage data centers," said Liu. "However, as an industry, we must be
vigilant to develop solutions that easy to deploy, mask the inherent
complexities of management and provide SDN programmabilitycompatible
with leading open source OS and management tools."
In addition to Liu's discussion, Steve Garrison, vice president of
marketing at Pica8, also chaired a panel discussion at the Ethernet
Summit called "SDN and Open Source Switching."
Tomorrow afternoon during the System Designers track, Yaron Ekshtein,
director of technical marketing at Pica8, will participate in a panel
discussion on Open Ethernet.
