An SDN Star Speaks Out

If anyone can speak to the impact software-defined networking will have on the IT landscape, it's Martin Casado, chief architect of networking at VMware. Named a top innovator of 2012 by CRN, Casado is the founder of Nicira, the SDN startup VMware acquired for a whopping $1.25 billion. He is widely considered one of the founding fathers of SDN and the concept of virtualized networks.

That's why CRN joined Casado at Interop to hear his take, first-hand, on one of the industry's hottest trends. After participating in a panel Wednesday with other industry executives trailblazing the SDN space -- including Rajeev Nagar, group program manager, Windows Core Networking at Microsoft, and Rajiv Ramaswami, executive vice president and general manager, Infrastructure and Networking Group at Broadcom -- Casado spoke with CRN about everything from the impact SDN will have on the channel to why VMware and Microsoft may end up seeing eye to eye after all.

Take a look.
