    Data center environments have been evolving rapidly since the rise of the Software-Defined-Networking (SDN) paradigm back in 2008-2009. Over the last couple of years, there has been a push towards building data centers using Open Standards with an emphasis on programmability, telemetry, and advanced analytics. Most organizations are looking at embracing a cloud approach which relies on a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) strategy that encompasses compute, storage, network as well as security in a holistic manner. Ravi will present popular open standards that are being employed to build large scale data centers. This includes a discussion on how, both the network operating system on the switches as well as the network controller have to evolve to become "cloud-ready".

    With the introduction of container technology, the next wave of virtualization has resulted in a rethink of the data center design. Employing close integration between the controller and compute/storage orchestrators, these data centers need to manage and support a hybrid environment with a wide variety of workloads which include bare-metals, virtual machines, containers as well as Layer 4-7 services appliances. Ravi will also provide a brief overview on how Cisco is leading the way in realizing open data centers with the Open Programmable Fabric solution.
