This is the forth of a five part podcast series on IBM’s Open Data Center Interoperable Network or ODIN program and DOVE or Distributed Overlay Virtual Ethernet. I talk with Dr. Casimer DeCasatis, IBM Distinguished Engineer and System Networking’s Chief Technical Officer for strategic alliances about IBM’s Software Defined-Networking or SDN stack and how applications request network services with IBM’s linkage between its Patterns and SDN product set.
Duration 12 minutes and 17 seconds:
Lippis Intro/Analysis @ : 00:10 sec
Question 1 @ 2:27 What are the key architectural components that enable applications to call upon network resource within PureSystems.
Question 2 @ 4:45: What is Patterns and its main function?
Question 3 @ 7:21: How do clients build DOVE networks and DOVE networks build Virtual System pattern?
Question 4 @ 8:58: What network infrastructure needs to be put in place before virtual system patterns can be created and what’s the main business benefit gained?
