UBM's Transformed Datacenter Community Hosts First Live, Interactive Facebook Video Chat on the Impact of Software-Defined Networking on the Modern Datacenter, With Virtualization Solutions Architect Bill Kleyman

Jul 12, 2013

NEW YORK, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. ET, The Transformed Datacenter's Editor-in-Chief, Marilyn Cohodas, will be hosting a live, interactive Facebook video chat on how software-defined networking is transforming the modern datacenter. The chat will feature guest speaker Bill Kleyman, a virtualization solutions architect at MTM Technologies.

During the July 17 Facebook video chat, "SDN Is Transforming the Datacenter," Kleyman will discuss how SDN is creating a "virtual" datacenter without walls. Attendees will also learn about datacenter visualization trends; new management options for connecting the logical and the physical; new services for the "datacenter of everything;" cloud and modern datacenters; solutions for disaster recovery and business continuity; and datacenter futures.

"Software-defined networking -- or SDN -- is arguably one of the most hyped and least understood technology concepts facing datacenters today. What exactly is SDN? For the majority of engineers and architects, the acronym stands for 'Still Don't Know.' During our Facebook video chat, Bill Kleyman will sort out the facts from the hyperbole, and explain what it all means for the datacenter of tomorrow," said Marilyn Cohodas, Editor-in-Chief, TheTransformedDatacenter.com.

This will be the first live Facebook video chat hosted by The Transformed Datacenter, the online community with a central theme of deriving business value from IT infrastructure. Participation for attendees is free; attendees also have the opportunity to ask questions of the guest speaker in real-time via Facebook's text comment stream.
