Regarding the effects of latency on coud densification, most latency minimization techniques are effective for data center connections within a metro. In wide area (trans-continental) applications, distance-driven latency, which cannot be eliminated or significantly decreased, overwhelms all other sources. Are applications being developed to accomodate this latency?

fav spot a paradise-like beach anywhere

Light Beer

Great presentation!

Light Sabre

This session was more of a visionary based perspective but it is nice to have such perspective

Blogger

Security shall be evluated properly for DCI, now the optical vendors are giving optical encryption on top of the encryption of the end user

Blogger

Nice to know, not only connectivity is needed but also agility like scaling up and scaling down

Blogger

Companies like Ciena, ALU, Cisco are briging up new low latency DWDM cards to connect DCs

Blogger

For low latency, the DWDM to connect DCIs would need low latency transponders

Blogger

Poll: Not well,  It needs more education for using open source for interconnect

Blogger

Data Center Interconnet will explode thanks to explosion of clouds

Blogger

It is interesting how the public cloud and private growing compared to traditional IT

Blogger

POLL- Skillset in operation of Data centers is the biggest challenge

 

Blogger

Interesting , how the networking connectivity moves from rings to mesh connectivity. Mesh becomes more mesh,  Any technology that helps efficiently connect this mesh has a future

Blogger

It would be good to take advanage of Rodney experiecne today, great topic

Blogger

Thank you.  Excellent and informative.

Light Beer

Can you elaborate more on modular design (build part, slide 10)?

Light Beer

People skills on slide 4 seems to become less and less important with time especially in light of rising importance of technology. Do you see it dropping even lower or becoming unnecesary in future? Given virtualization of environment, what skills you believe is worth investing in?

Light Beer

What is the most innovative data center you have seen?

Light Beer

Thanks Rodney!

Light Sabre

Thank you!!! Great Info!!!

Light Beer

Thanks again everyone.

I've got to sign off. 

Best, 

Rod

Blogger

Thanks @Rodney for answering our questions! 

Blogger

Question: On slide 4, BA/Analytics is listed as top importance for CIO IT spending.

Unfortunately I'm not sure I'm best to answer how these positions are being filled. 

Blogger

@RodneyE606: Thank you for answering my question about QoE.

Light Beer

Great class @Rodney! I learned a lot. Thanks so much. Till next time @Kelsey.

Lightning

We're seeing customers - strategically choose what components to move from exaisting data centers, it's not a zero sum game, its a migration.  As architectures and applications are being 're-imagined' not all components 'make the move' espeically when the moves are driven by examples like - technology refresh, or oppportunity initatives, an example might be a manufacture where they are moving work loads "to the edge" and doing more analytics on the factory floor, which then needs interconnectivity to 'cloud' assets. 

Blogger

Great material Thanks~

Light Beer

Quality of Experience - its in reference to the KPI's Enterprises use to measure how an end user is consuming and experiencing an application, the interesting thing is that the QoE may not simply be the "time to display" a web page, it may include the time it takes to complete a database quary which interacts with backend systems.  An example might be where an end user hits a WebSphere front-end but the transaction takes place on a remote DB2 instance. 

Blogger

Thank you, great presentaction

Light Beer

Thanks @Rodney, that's really helpful!

Blogger

great presentation

Light Beer

Answer - Ethernet as a framing type is deployable over nearly any and all L1 types of interconnect.  We see a great deal of Wireless (long haul) and short being deployed - for example in the financial sector to actaully lower latency.  

Blogger
Good discussion. Well done. [email protected] DarrellM
Light Beer

@Rodney that makes sense.

Light Sabre
The powerpoint was also very informative - thanks Rodney.
Light Beer

Answer: Cost of Interconnectivity - cost vary based on type and location, we encourage consumers to find a balance between $$/Mbps vs the Quality of Service required to meet end user Quality of Experience.  

Blogger

@Rodney thanks so much for the excellent presentation today! Listeners - thank you for tuning in and we'll see you next Wednesday for The Central Office Re-Architected as a Data Center !

Blogger
Thanks another informative lecture?
Light Beer

Thanks this was good

 

Light Beer

@Rodney - here's another listener question: How does OTN technology map on your data center interconnection technology? else what is the L1 technology on which your ethernet/IP networks run?

Blogger

Thanks Rodney!

Light Beer

Great one. Looking forward for next session.

Light Beer

QUESTION: What are the costs of interconnectivity, and are those expenses shared?

Light Beer

Thanks a lot Rodney, Kelsey, very interesting lecture. Best greetings to all

Light Sabre

Great! Thank You.

Light Beer

Great job and thank you

 

Light Beer

thnx for great presentation

Light Beer

Thank You Rodney & Kelsey for the excellent presentation!

Light Beer

@Rodney - Listener Q: 

On slide 2, could you elaborate a little more about the phrase "Quality of Experience matters"? It's shown as a new rule, and I'm not sure what it means.

Blogger

I can't open the presentation file which in this live chat after  I download it.

 

Light Beer

Thanks. good talk and good questions from the discussion board.

Light Beer

Thank you everyone, and thank you for the feedback.  Please enjoy your day.

Ykes!!! I meant "Yet another good..."

Light Beer

Great job, Rodney!

Light Beer

Lots of good bits of information

Yet another goof presentation. Lots of good bits of information. Thanks Rodney E. and Kelsey Z.

Light Beer

Thanks for taking the time to spend with us Rodney

 

Light Beer

Thank you for the audio and slide presentation.

Light Beer

Thank you Rodney

Light Beer

We are using open source as part of our virtualization strategy pretty well.

Light Beer

Hot in NY, too @klogan453. It's been like that all week. Did you just post that, or is this the chat acting odd?

Light Sabre

How does OTN technology map on your data centre interconnection technology? else what is the L1 technology on which your ethernet/IP networks run?

Light Sabre

What technology in general do you see as being gone in 5 years as it impacts data centers and interconnectivity?

Light Beer
I actually see remote data centers as a positive aspect -no need to touch and feel -especially in cases of DR.
Light Beer

what is best practice for data center security?

Light Beer

How do you ensure the six 9 availability that you hightlighted in the last slide?

Light Sabre

Are you seeing more of an acceptance from the end customer that they don't need to be close to their data cneter? No need to physically tourch and see their "stuff" -

Light Beer

yes, priority on security.

Light Beer

Network providers seem to be moving away from being data centers - how is that impacting customers? No big deal - it's just a change - or is it disrupting?

Light Beer

Where do you see OPCimpacting DC design and platform structures

 

Light Beer

I put my priorrity on security @GeogiaCougar0

Light Sabre

@georgiacougar0: Open source code can be better searched for security shortfalls.

Light Beer

@GeorgiaCougar, that's a good question. We have a class coming up on that later in the month. 

Lightning

@RODNEY

Slide 8: Is Data Center infrastructure management centralized or run locally?

Light Beer

Coming up on Q&A shortly - get your questions for Rodney in!

Blogger

security versus open source? Thoughts?

Light Beer

@Productd86057 interesting question!

Light Sabre

Moderately well

 

Light Beer

What organization is driving SDN / security standards for the data center?

Light Beer

open source DCI?

 

Light Beer

Using opensource for core, not so much for transport interconnectivity yet

Light Beer
Yes the increase demonstrated in the slide.
Light Beer

How well is your organization using open source as part of its virtualization strategy for Data Center Interconnect? Not well, moderately well, or very well?

Blogger

moderately well

Light Beer

moderly well

Light Beer

moderately well

 

Light Beer

Very open to open source as part of virtualization strategy.

Light Beer

moderately well

Light Beer

moderately well

Light Beer

In a Hybrid Cloud solution, connectivity from outside sources to a private cloud to enhance productivity will security concerns? How will this be addressed ?

Light Beer

How vulnerable are these clouds/data centers to solar flares?

Light Beer

@maryam the density?

Blogger
Do you see thid density impacting performance longterm?
Light Beer

Yes, slide 7 need answers

Light Beer

Coming up on time for more listener questions shortly...get your questions in!

Blogger

Slide 7: little confused, network itself is the connectivity, right? so what does this visualisation convey?

 

Light Sabre

can open your presentation pdf file

 

Light Beer

Audio has been great this time. I'm thinking there is some firewall some place limiting the users or limiting the bandwidth on the audio. Theory only

Light Beer

Connectivity is important in every type of Datacenter/Cloud. Is Fibre +SDN the preferred method of interconnectivity moving forward ?

Light Beer

Shout out to Chicago!

Lightning

(@jkiolbasa: audio good for me)

Light Beer

@jkiolbasa audio can be impacted by your broadband connection -- latency!

Lightning

@dfperson yes, good one!

Blogger

great, thank you

Light Beer

@Ariella they like to spin the wheel at odd times :)

Light Sabre

@jkiolbasa audio is fine for me.

Light Sabre

Picking up from slide 7

Light Sabre

does anyone elses audio keep turning off?

Light Beer

@Kelsey - thanks for asking my question! @Rodney - thanks for answering my question! :-)

Light Beer

@Michelle chat monsters  pay visits when they want.

Light Sabre

latency

 

Light Beer

distance/latency

Light Beer

Biggest data center interconnect challenge involves, to my point of view, capacity and latency. (Security should be the greatest challenge, but it has been overlooked too often. Supposed skillset shortages make the news, but companies are not willing to pay to upgrade skills, so is it really a challenge if data centers don't want to engage it?)

Light Beer

poll response: distance/latency

Light Sabre

chat is behaving a little strange today - working, but reposting all messages again. odd.

Light Sabre
Hi ariella nice to see you here
Light Beer

@welkim you really want to hedge your bets with 3 choices!

Light Sabre

What is the biggest Data Center Interconnect challenge? Is the biggest challenge related to distance/latency, capacity limits, security, or skill sets/manual operations?

Blogger

skillset , security, and transactional capacity

 

Light Beer

Overwhelming majority go for security, though a good number of them are adding skill set.

Light Sabre

security is always top priority but closely followed by latency 

Light Beer

Skills sets and security

Light Beer

Complexity and difficulty/costs of patching

Light Beer

Capacity limits

 

Light Beer
Capacity limit
Light Beer

Skill Sets/Security

Light Beer

Capacity and latency

 

Light Beer

1. security

2. skill set

Light Beer

Poll: Security + skillset

Light Sabre

is there strong demand for edge data centers? And if so, is it a challenge finding suitable locations?

 

Moderator

@johnGordon ah, thta can be confusing.

Light Sabre

(What the presenter refers to as slide 5 is actually page 6. I've been calling page 6 slide 6.)

Light Beer

More control!!

Light Sabre

Great questions everyone! I'll be asking Rodney a listener question in just a few minutes.

Blogger

Slide 3: what is the aproximate composition of the 5TB data/person?

 

Light Sabre

hope get something new info from this seminar

Light Beer

Is that a Gartner projection or other research entity? The billions of devices predictions vary from firm to firm...

Light Sabre

on slide 3 is the 5TB per person work information or personal including videos/pictures etc?

Light Beer

@gneangodav8v - Just need vacation funding. :-)

Light Beer

When you reference Cloud, do you mean Public, private or Hybrid

Light Beer

@jlaing: downloading the presentation is the way

Light Beer

For those wondering - this is an audio presentation with slides (linked above), There will be no video

Light Sabre

@jlaing slides are in the link above the live chat

Blogger

FYI: Audio playback does work on mobile (iOS and Android)

Light Sabre

Is visual via downloading the presentation, or is there Webex of some sort?

Light Beer

Audio can be impacted by our listeners broadband connection and also corporate firewalls. 

Lightning

LightReading nees some additional bandwidth. Some participants seem to be having audio issues.

Light Beer

@gneangodav8v - Agreed. :-)

Light Beer

QUESTION: On slide 2, could you elaborate a little more about the phrase "Quality of Experience matters"? It's shown as a new rule, and I'm not sure what it means.

Light Beer

QUESTION: On slide 8, it says "customers are reimagining infrastructure." Are there infrastructure differences that would prevent or slow down interconnectivity? How are those differences rectified?

Light Beer

Good Afternoon!

 

 

Light Beer

Question (repost): On slide 4, BA/Analytics is listed as top importance for CIO IT spending.

 

How are these positions being filled? Are universities supplying enough well-rounded analytics folks? What about certificate programs, any worthwhile programs delivering really great folks?

Light Sabre

fired up for this preso!

Light Beer

QUESTION: Would it be possible to obtain more specific information on the references on slide 3? Right now, it just says things like "Bain," which makes it hard to track the specific source material.

Light Beer

Good morning from Denver.
