Palo Alto, CALIF. — May 5, 2016—This ONUG Community Town Hall Meeting, which also includes speakers from Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Brocade, will focus on how to balance or optimize traffic flows within a converged network infrastructure where Ethernet supports datagram and storage traffic. In addition to compute, now with solid state technology, storage media is no longer the performance bottleneck; instead, the network has become the bottleneck. Furthermore, Coho Data’s Andrew Warfield, will discuss the importance of why storage systems must learn to constantly evolve and innovate in order to handle the reality of the new datacenter environment.

The goal of the ONUG 2016 Conference is to advance open networking and open storage by facilitating a higher level of engagement between IT business leaders, standards and open source organizations, and members of the academic, vendor, and service provider communities. The ONUG Community Town Hall Meeting provides a forum for open and frank discussion between IT business leaders and industry leaders to explore issues associated with operationalizing open infrastructure technologies.
