also security is paramount

Light Beer

Lack of resource and expertise are key for SME

Light Beer

Good use cases for understanding

 

Light Beer

Thanks for the great lecture

Light Beer

Thanks, Chris & Kelsey for this great lecture

Light Beer

Thanks for the information with usecases!

 

Light Beer

Execellent use cases, thank you!

Light Beer

Security and the right skill set are the most important obstacles in my view.

 

Light Beer

Listening from the sunshine state- California.

Light Beer

Ease of adding services is the main driver.

 

Light Beer

having the right skill set

Light Beer

secure connection for mobile devices

Light Beer

It's good to be inside today!

Light Beer

Cincinnati, sunny, hot.

Light Beer

Thanks again, Chris, we enjoyed it!

Thanks, Chris.  It's an exciting topic, to be sure.  I've heard stories of telcos and service providers being able to engage in projects for pennies on the dollar compared to in nations like the US and the UK.

Light Sabre

Thanks everyone for the questions and time.  I enjoyed the chance to share what I see in the market with all of you.

Looking forward to it as always, Kelsey!  :)

Light Sabre

That is correct on the instrumented probes.  We poll and aggregate that data in markets and then centralize for analytics to enable the SDN services

@Chris - thank you so much for an excellent lecture today! Listeners - thanks for tuning in and for your great questions this afternoon. We'll see you back here on Monday at 1pm ET!

Blogger

That is a very interesting question on virtualization in developing countries.  I think it is incredibly exciting.  Similar to wireless leap frogging traditional broadband to give more ubiquitous coverage and access to information, I think the same will be true of virtualization.  It should really expedite and enable innovation in those countries as owned infrastructure won't be a pre-requisite.

for automating dynamic capacity, we need to minitor traffic and compare with thresholds. how is the monitoring done, instrumented probes?

 

Light Sabre

We have internal APIs that support ourSDN capabilities to our portal and applications, but we haven't yet exposed those externally.  It is definitely on the roadmap as that is essential to enabling customer self serve

One more question for Chris: How do you see the role of virtualization evolving right now in developing countries?  It seems there's an even greater demand for cloud and virtualization there than in developed first-world nations because of infrastructure and cost issues.

Light Sabre

That is a tricky one.  We see many enterprises look to systems integrators to provide skill sets that are hard to find and may not make sense long term for the enterprise to keep on staff

Thanks for the great show, Kelsey and Chris!  :)

Light Sabre

@Chris - another listener question, "Are you supporting SDN via API's?"

Blogger

@Chris - Lots of talk about skills - how do businesses bridge that gap?

Blogger

Thanks for the sharing.

Light Beer

Post your question to the chat

Blogger

We have time for a few more questions!

Blogger

Thank you for the lecture!

Light Beer

Thanks everyone.  Great questions so far

 

Thx Chris and LR team!

 

Light Sabre

Yes, thank you. Very good

 

Light Beer

Thank you Chriss

Light Beer

Thanks for asking and answering both my questions!  :)

Light Sabre

What rate of transition do you see happening, slow or fast, of customers migrating from MPLS to Ethernet

Light Beer

Still, this brings up a good question for Chris: Even when you move the compute instead of the data, you eventually have to export the results of your analytics.  What are the compliance issues in such cases as you see them?

Light Sabre

Thinking Ipv6 proliferation would be the differentiator driving customers from  Ethernet  to Layer3 solutions.  But security and management are key Ethernet advantages

 

Light Beer

@jayakd0: From what I understand, the trend now is more about moving the compute and analytics than the data.

Light Sabre

Lots of talk about skills - how do businesses bridge that gap?

Light Beer

Are you supporting SDN via API's

 

Light Beer

when the application in public cloud pulls private data, how do we say regulatory compliance is still achieved?

Light Sabre

How does the physical capacity still managed?

 

Light Beer

End - end Performance across WAN and Ethernet scenarios are important. Does level 3 look at packet level performance across wireless WAN and Ethernet connectivity ?

Light Beer

@Det you should be able to download from the link above

Blogger

What other questions do you have for Chris?

Blogger

Can the Deck be e-mailed to me?

 

Light Beer

@TeleWRTRLiz, Just to prepare for the wrost cast. We see a lot of clients pull back from the new business system within a short time frame and invested millions of dollars. There is no different in the cloud migration.

 
Light Beer

This is great

 

Light Beer

Isn't SDN and Capacity measurements and Elastic Cloud part of the Public Cloud providers? Why would we want Level3 as an add on to that?

Light Beer

poll response:security

 

Light Sabre

In some more-evolving areas, however, like pharma and life science, we're starting to get past that (because people in those industries have paid such close attention to these issues for years) and it's becoming more about skillsets and IT culture.

Light Sabre

I find it really depends on the vertical and the geography.  In many geographical areas and industries, it's a combination of security, business culture, and regulatory compliance (e.g., everything data-privacy related).

Light Sabre

Coming up on our Q&A session, what would you like to ask Chris?

Blogger

All of the above, but skill sets and IT cultrure are high on the list.

Light Beer

Skill sets and culture

Light Beer

Kidding

security, Upper management, and Compliance

Light Beer

... acquiring the right skill sets.

Light Beer

security, compliance

 

Light Beer

Acquiring correct skillset

 

Light Beer

What's the biggest challenge for enterprises as they migrate to the cloud? Security, connectivity, regulatory compliance, IT culture, business culture, convincing upper management, or acquiring the right skillset? 

Blogger

Security should be the biggest challenge however, many do not see the issue not addressing security has for them

 

Light Beer

convincing management

 

Light Beer

IT culture, convincing upper management

Light Beer

for render and encode in the cloud, is specialised hardware or COTS hardware being used?

Light Sabre

skill set

 

Light Beer

Light Beer

What questions do you all have for Chris?

Blogger

that's an interesting point @Ccheng. I had not thought about that. How is it different?

Lightning

@linkedin51335 ExpressRoute is private network connectivity to Microsoft Azure and O365 https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/expressroute/

Light Beer

I'll be asking another listener question shortly, what questions do you have for Chris?

Blogger

Also need to think about what need when need to pull out from the cloud, the exit requirements.

Light Beer

yes...performance and ease of adding servicce

Light Beer

Actually, performance, too, I guess.  It was really all three.

Light Sabre

Performance and Security

 

Light Beer

security and performance together IMO

Lightning

We are not using cloud platform...unfortunately.

Light Beer

Security and ease.  Tied.

Light Sabre

ease of adding services

Light Beer

Is your organization using Ethernet connections for cloud platforms, and if so, what were some of the primary drivers behind that decision? Examples are establishing secure connections, improving last-mile delivery, boosting service performance, or ease of adding services. 

Blogger

Ease of adding services

Light Beer

Security and Performance

Light Beer

yes. . imporve last mile delivery

 

Light Beer

what is the relationship with the ethernet and the cloud?

Light Beer

@linkedin51334: from what iunderstand basically cached network sources

 

Light Beer

@Liz: You know it.  It seems nobody can shut up about IoT and IoT forecasts these days.  ;)

Light Sabre

What is express route?

Light Beer

good one @Joe  ... know you are all about IoT 

Lightning

QUESTION FOR CHRIS: The IDC data presented on slide 2 representing 46% of IT spend moving to cloud by 2020... To what extent is that being driven by increasing IoT deployment?

Light Sabre

Q: What applicaitons are they moving to the public cloud first and why?

Lightning

Listening from Boston today.

The first show of June and we're going to the cloud by way of ethernet. Looks like a great show. Can't wait to listen in.

Light Sabre

@faryl Yes, this should be a great session, looking forward to hearing from Chris!

Blogger

Looking forward to this! It seems like with the shift to cloud-based systems, the importance of ethernet/physical networks doesn't get discussed quite as often, though they're a key element for network reliability.
