Overview

The WAN has changed forever. No longer does it transport traffic primarily from “inside to inside” (that is, from on-premise offices to on-premise data centers). The majority of traffic now initiates from or terminates on a site that’s off-premise—or both!

It’s time to talk about how you are approaching your next generation of infrastructure! when:

    • The WAN is no longer just the network that links your branches to your data center, and most WAN traffic touches the outside…
    • 60% or more of IT workloads execute in clouds…
    • 40% of organizations want edge infrastructure…
    • …And nobody wants to go into a windowless space with no outside air exchange

In this session we’ll discuss with industry leaders their approaches to the future of infrastructure, their best practices and cautionary tales, and advice on how to adapt.

We’ll cover next-generation technologies such as SD-WAN, SASE/SCAPE, and software-defined perimeter (SDP), RPA for data centers, and wireless (4G and 5G) for WANs and networks.  We’ll also look at tools such as cloud orchstration and intelligent storage.  We cover the evolution of edge computing and address the emergence of lights-out, autonomous data centers. We’ll discuss the key components of edge computing and edge data center, and how to integrate these emerging technologies into a next-generation architecture.

Network, cloud, data center architects, engineers, and designers
