    Every major networking vendor offers a workload migration solution that supposedly helps you seamlessly migrate workloads between data centers. Some of them offer cloudbursting solutions to do the same between your data center and public cloud. Are these solutions worth considering? Would they work in real life? Can we use software-defined data center technologies like overlay virtual networks and network function virtualization to easily move workloads across geographic locations and between private and public clouds? This workshop will help you find the answers to these questions.

    We'll start with an application-centric view of the problem, analyze typical application requirements, and identify bottlenecks, challenges and roadblocks on the way to mobile workloads deployed in multiple data centers. We'll also touch on application designs that have been proven to work in active/active data center scenarios and across the private/public cloud boundaries.

    Key Takeaways:
    After attending this workshop you'll be able to:

    • Help the application development teams decide whether it makes sense to split an application stack across multiple geographical locations or between private data center and public cloud;
    • Identify the potential bottlenecks that hamper workload migrations;
    • Evaluate how overlay virtual networks and network function virtualization simplify workload migrations;
    • Select the optimal solution for your private or hybrid cloud deployments.

    Who Should Attend:
    This workshop targets network architects, designers and deployment/operations engineers who are planning, designing or building next-generation data centers supporting private or public cloud services. It will also help virtualization and server engineers understand the limitations of traditional data center designs and the options made available with the emerging virtual networking and SDN technologies.
