Interop panel debates need for network engineers to have programming skills in order to work in a future of software-defined networks.
The huge performance provided by all-flash arrays is a boon for virtual desktop infrastructure, but don't be fooled by unrealistic calculations.
In the third part of this series examining vendors' SDN products, I discuss Juniper's network overlay approach and three other vendor strategies for tackling software-defined networking.
If you're looking at a converged platform as a way to increase data center efficiency, here are three factors to keep in mind.
In the second part of this series examining vendors' SDN products, I look at Cisco ACI, Arista's programmable approach, and HP's commitment to OpenFlow.
With the arrival of faster networks and SSDs, RAID can no longer keep up. Data protection alternatives such as replication and erasure codes are gaining traction.
It's a land grab in the software-defined networking market, with heavyweights and startups rolling out an array of technologies for automating the network.

The Best of Interop Awards recognize innovative hardware and software that represent technological advancement in a specific category. The Interop judging team poured through 129 submissions in nine categories, including networking, mobility, and security. This year we chose to mix this up a little by creating a separate storage category and adding a whole new SDN category. Awards were also presented for Grand Award winner, Best Startup, and Audience Choice. See who took home the prize this year!

It's hard to believe it's been 26 years since the first commercial Interop conference. Over the years, vendors made splashes with new technologies, Interop grew beyond its Silicon Valley roots, and celebrities like Mr. T joined the action. Here's a look at some of the best moments in Interop's rich history.

At the end of March, IT engineers and architects will descend upon Las Vegas for Interop, the biggest independent IT conference of the year. The show will be packed with the latest technology, including everything from OpenFlow to 802.11ac and SSDs to DIMMs. But even the biggest technophile needs have a little fun at the end of the day, and Las Vegas is certainly the place to find it. If you want to get away from the glitzy shows and casinos, check out these places where nerds can let loose.
