Zenlayer to debut SDN platform at Capacity Asia

Zenlayer, a global software defined network and service provider, will be unveiling its SDN platform at Capacity Asia 2016, December 6-7 in Hong Kong.


Zenlayer’s platform combines its foundation of 50+ global data centers and global IP backbone with the virtualization of data center and network functions to provide infrastructure that scales on-demand.  The resulting service is one that can be provisioned instantly, is burstable to meet peak demands and allows users to pay for only what they use.


Virtualization – what are the key steps to next-gen software adoption?

Joe Zhu, Zenlayer’s founder and CEO, will be discussing the potential and impact of data center and network virtualization with a panel of speakers on December 7, 2016 at 9:15 AM.  Fellow speakers include Diarmid Massey, VP of Asia-Pacific Sales for Equinix, and Gint Atkinson, VP and Head of Technology for Colt.  The panel will be moderated by Sam Evans, Partner of Red Shift Strategy.

Together, these four professionals with deep industry experience will delve into where the biggest potential lies in virtualization, whether the potential of Big Data will eventually be realized with a virtualized system, and how SDN (Software Defined Networking) and NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) will impact ROI.

“I am excited to be speaking about SDN to such a prestigious global audience, as I believe it will revolutionize the way people, cloud and businesses connect,” said Mr. Zhu.  “We are especially looking forward to meeting peers to discuss opportunities for partnership and collaboration.”
