All eyes are on San Francisco this week. Why? Because Colin Kaepernick is going to have the best season for a second year quarterback since Dan Marino’s magical 1984 season? That’s a pretty good reason, but the pre-season still has a week left.
No, this week downtown San Francisco is overrun by 25,000 supreme geeks as VMware tries to convince everyone that the software defined data center is the future and other vendors look to align themselves with this message.
One of the vendors attempting to do just that is WAN optimization vendor Silver Peak. Yesterday, Silver Peak announced integration with VMware’s NSX network virtualization to create greater network agility. Given the trends in networking – the continued increase in virtual traffic combined with a shift to hybrid cloud architectures creates a need for greater network agility.
