Network Design: Out In The Open

activereach, in conjunction with tech partners Cumulus Networks and Mellanox Technologies, is hosting a free breakfast meeting specifically geared towards educating networking IT professionals on how to introduce open source technologies into their data center networks.  We will show you how these open networking platforms enable customers to choose best of breed components in order to optimize and automate their data centers to meet their business needs.  Reserve your spot today.

This is not a sales pitch! Come prepared for an engaging session where you can whiteboard and brainstorm with engineering expert, Pete Crocker. He will review current network designs and various ways you can introduce open source technologies into existing environments — without disruption and with full interoperability.

Hear also from Mark Taplin as he explains how Mellanox’s low latency, zero packet loss and wire-speed performance solutions can be deployed to enable greater agility, automation, and efficiency to data centres scaling to the cloud.
