Chip Shot: Intel Accelerates Data Center Network Transformation

Today at the Open Networking Summit, Rose Schooler, vice president of the Intel Architecture Group and general manager of the Communications and Storage Infrastructure Group announced the Intel® Open Network Platform, introducing several hardware and software tools aimed at boosting data center networking efficiency and performance. During her keynote, Schooler discussed how using standard x86 servers and programmable switches to deploy and manage virtualized networking infrastructure with software-defined networking will radically lower costs and enable data center and telecom networks to deploy new services. To see how software-defined networking and Intel’s network function virtualization as complementary networking technologies are poised to transform the way networks are designed, deployed and managed across data center and telecom infrastructure environments, watch this video.
