Interop Photos: SDN Keynote Frenzy

LAS VEGAS -- Interop -- OK, maybe there wasn't exactly a "frenzy" over software-defined networking (SDN), especially considering the first and last keynotes Wednesday morning neatly avoided the topic. It was a good morning of discussion regarding the future of the network, though, with SDN overshadowing even the non-SDN parts. Some audience members grumbled about the product-heavy nature of keynotes from Cisco Systems Inc. and Juniper Networks Inc., but an SDN panel and a surprise announcement from the Open Compute Project seemed to go over well. And judging by this line, there's still a hunger to sit in a dark room after breakfast and listen to relative strangers talk into microphones. Click forward for more (of the keynotes, not the line).

re: Interop Photos: SDN Keynote Frenzy I'm gonna guess Citrix padded the vote (or just had a lot of early risers at the keynote). I wasn't gonna vote in the best-of-Best-Of Interop, but I couldn't believe HackerRack wasn't running away with it.

I mean, I'm sure the Citrix bundle thing is all very exciting and smells nice, and the Arista 7500E was notable enough that we wrote about it. But HackerRack, from what I gathered from the 2-sentence blurb they read, is a test-flying environment for combatting real time security threats. How cool does that sound?

btw, I'm talking about this picture:
