Today’s Weekly Show is a wide-ranging discussion on a variety of networking topics, including OpenFlow (and what happened to it), network disaggregation, automation, network virtualization, and NICs.
Our guest is Wes Felter, a former researcher at IBM who’s been investigating OpenFlow, data center fabrics, and network virtualization. Because Wes didn’t come to networking from a traditional (i.e. Cisco) background, he has a unique perspective. Wes and the Packet Pushers explore the current state of networking and speculate about where the industry is going.
