Plexxi Pulse – #Networking on Twitter

Plexxi had a great time discussing the future of networking and SDN with our friends in the industry at the Software-Defined Data Center Symposium and Network Field Day 6 this past week, hosted by SDNCentral and Tech Field Day. We also participated in another educational Demo Friday with Opscode earlier today. During Demo Friday, Christopher Brown from Opscode and our own Derick Winkworth explained how to assign roles to infrastructure and then use the Opscode Chef roles to drive network behavior. Our demo showcased how SDN and DevOps reduce OpEx via the integration of Plexxi and Opscode Chef. Below is some of the Twitter buzz from events we attended this week in the Plexxi Pulse – enjoy!
