PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2012) - Cyan today announced that Frank Wiener, vice president of marketing at Cyan, will participate on the panel, "Scalable DCI Networks: Visibility & Control for Enterprise Customer SLAs" at Interop on Wednesday, May 9, 2012. Sam Barnett, directing analyst of data center and cloud with Infonetics Research, will moderate the panel, running from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. PT, which will also include Eric Shepcaro, chief executive officer and chairman of the board at Telx, and Barry Dykes, vice president of engineering & chief strategy officer at ViaWest. Together, these executives will approach the topic from an educational perspective to provide a balanced, real-world view on scaling data center interconnect (DCI) networks.
Increased adoption of cloud-based services is contributing to a dramatic rise in inter-data center traffic. The related escalation of WAN costs, combined with the emergence of carrier-grade Ethernet, is leading data center operators to deploy their own Ethernet-based DCI networks. This panel session will provide an overview of the business and operational challenges associated with deploying high-performance Ethernet-based DCI networks, as well as the new technology solutions that allow data center operators to scale capacity with greater efficiency while providing the visibility and control required to meet enterprise customers' SLAs.
