It’s exciting to see CA investing in innovation, and you can help.  We’re building a team to develop network monitoring solutions for the emerging technologies called Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).  While some organizations have already deployed SDN/NFV software or devices – typically large government agencies, large enterprises and large CSPs – mainstream adoption is around the corner.  There are 2 areas where you can help us with our development:

    1.      Tell us about your involvement with SDN:

“At what stage are you at for evaluating or implementing SDN?”

    • If ‘we haven’t started’, would 30-45 minutes with our SDN experts be worth your time to understand the technology and our plans to monitor it?
      • This could on-site at your location, via webcast, or at our SDN Center of Excellence in Portsmouth, NH
    • If you are already active with SDN/NFV (evaluating or deployed), can you share any of the following:
      • Where are you implementing SDN – Data Center, LAN or WAN?
      • What hardware vendors are you using or considering for SDN?
      • How are you monitoring your SDN devices?
      • Would 30-45 minutes with our SDN experts be worth your time to understand our plans to monitor it?
        • This could on-site at your location, via webcast, or at our SDN Center of Excellence in Portsmouth, NH

 

    2.    Read our new white paper (attached) “Managing the Software Defined World: Managing You Infrastructure in the Highly Agile World of Software

             Defined Networks”.  The paper outlines the challenges that dynamic networks will present, show software-defined networks differ from

            traditional networks, and what network monitoring tools will encounter as SDN becomes mainstream. Comments welcome!
