Abstract: Internet2: Innovation, SDN, and cloud computing convergence on the advanced network

Presenter(s): Eric Boyd, Internet2

The R&E community has helped invent the concept of Software Defined Networking and has already begun to leverage SDN concepts in its production networks. Now as users from throughout the R&E ecosystem demand more integrated compute, storage, and networking, we must tackle another level of network virtualization and compute/storage integration with our R&E networks.

This talk will focus on Internet2′s evolution of its “innovation platform” and how content, compute, and storage capabilities may begin to integrate with the SDN network capabilities.
