Gabi Gerber (with a bit of help from my side) is organizing another set of SDN events in Zurich (Switzerland) in early June.
In the morning of June 7th we’ll talk about software-defined security:
- I’ll quickly walk you through various solutions – from things that run in production to those that better stay in PowerPoint;
- Sergei Gotchev from Juniper will talk about data center automation and their SDN/security solutions;
- After the break we’ll spend at least 2 hours talking about your challenges… and anything goes as long as it’s loosely related to SDN and security – from “should I use NSX or ACI for microsegmentation?” and “does service insertion make sense?” to “how do I roll this out in my organization?”
The afternoon of June 7th is focused on microsegmentation and NSX:
- I’ll start with a quick introduction to what microsegmentation is, whether it makes sense, and what its benefits and drawbacks are;
- Mitja Robas, a good friend of mine and an awesome networking architect, will talk about his NSX implementation experience (he has NSX running in a production deployment). There’s an interesting story around how that deployment started, and you might hear it if you’ll stay for the after-event apero;
- Thomas Wacker from UBS will talk about reducing data center complexity;
- Finally, Christof Jungo will focus on a topic many vendors don’t really want to see mentioned: how do you secure an SDN network.
