In his recent blog post, Toby Owen hinted at future technology to extend our cloud into customers’ data centers. We’re working toward that end, but in the near term we want to allow our customers to create their own networks in our public cloud. To accomplish this we’re adopting cutting edge technology around Software Defined Networks (SDN). I’ll discuss our implementation of SDN more in future blogs, but for those of you at Interop this week in New York, Toby and I will present an overview of how we are using OpenFlow-based logical switches in our hypervisors. (Our session, “Taking Cloud to the Final Frontier – SDN and Network Virtualization – Presented by Rackspace Hosting,” is Thursday, October 4 at 11:00 a.m. eastern.) Managed by a Nicira controller, these switches allow users to create logical networks between compute instances.
This week Rackspace heads to New York City for Interop, the annual east coast leg of the enterprise-focused IT event (running through Friday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center). Our experts will be on hand throughout the week to share their knowledge at workshops, in our booth sessions and with a keynote presentation by CTO John Engates.
Interop, which is among the longest running trade shows in IT, kicks off this week in Las Vegas.
