Cloud Computing and Networking

Scaling Overlay Virtual Networks:

Every major hypervisor- and networking vendor has an overlay virtual networking product or solution. Most of them work reasonably well in small environments, but would they also scale to thousands of hosts and tens- or hundreds of thousand of virtual machines or Docker containers?

This free webinar sponsored by Nuage Networks explores the scalability challenges of overlay virtual networks and give you some guidelines that you can use to select the overlay virtual networking solution for your public or private cloud.

Network Automation

Network Programmability 101: This webinar discusses fundamental concepts and ideas that network engineers can use today to start "ramping up" the software-defined path. Matt Oswalt addresses some of the biggest questions on many network professionals' minds - questions like "Do I need to be a programmer to keep my job?", or "There is so much to learn - where do I start?".
