Networking in 2015 - SDN and IPv6 | Part 2 By @MJannery [#SDN]

Once the initial scares surrounding IPv4 address exhaustion passed, enterprises have taken a relaxed attitude to deploying IPv6

In Part 1, I shared my thoughts on SDN in 2015, after reading Sean Michael Kerner’s article in Enterprise Networking Planet.  This post will cover a few of my thoughts on IPv6.

Once the initial scares surrounding IPv4 address exhaustion passed, enterprises have taken a relaxed attitude to deploying IPv6 (if they deploy it at all).  Given that there are sufficient IPv4 addresses for enterprises to use internally and well proven solutions for implementing NAT at the LAN/WAN boundary, there doesn’t appear to be a compelling reason for enterprises to adopt IPv6 internally in 2015.  Furthermore, most network architects, operations and support teams are very familiar with designing, supporting and troubleshooting IPv4 networks they are less familiar with performing the same with IPv6 or mixed or tunnelled IPv4/IPv6 networks.

Has your organization adopted IPv6?  If not, are you planning to?  We’d welcome your thoughts and comments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience. In their Day 2 Keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Mercer Rowe, IBM Vice President of Strategic Alliances, and Raejeanne Skillern, Intel Vice President of Data Center Group and GM, discussed how clients in this new era of innovation can apply data, technology, plus human ingenuity to springboard to advance new business value and opportunities.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
