Nuage Networks True Potential of Network Virtualization GigaOm Structure Europe with Scott Sneddon

882

Published on

While much has been said about network virtualization, current solutions remain limited to simplistic use cases, restricting services within boundaries of single data centers or virtualized islands. We describe a novel approach that fulfills the promise of massively scalable network virtualization and enables the seamless interconnection of cloud services with existing enterprise environments. Speaker: Scott Sneddon, Principle Solutions Architect, Nuage Networks
