Why Read This Report
As infrastructure & operations (I&O) leaders move aggressively to execute on their private cloud plans, they've run headlong into growing frictions between networking professionals and the rest of the data center team. Fundamentally, the networking organization can't handle key cloud strategy elements like virtual machine mobility and cloud bursting with today's rigid, manually controlled network. Thus, I&O professionals must accelerate network investment both inside and outside the data center. The business needs a network that interweaves local-area networks, wide-area networks, wireless, application acceleration, and management with application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDKs). This report delivers eight key predictions designed to help I&O leaders set their networking strategy for the next five years.
