TITLE: Software Defined Eveything: Moving to the DoD Information Core

SPEAKER: David Stern, DISA

DATE/TIME: Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 1:30 p.m.

LOCATION: 3403 Siebel Center for Computer Science

ABSTRACT: Advances and innovation in traditional networks have resulted in new approaches to the employment of the network, compute, storage, and security within the DoD. With the overwhelming operational requirement to provide and secure information capabilities for the warfighter within minutes, a new paradigm that collapses the organizational boundaries between network, compute, storage, and security is occurring. This session will discuss capabilities such as automated provisioning that are currently moving towards production and newer defensive cyber operations innovations such as on demand movement of live compute and storage applications, on demand composition changes to the footprint of DoD networks, on demand connections to commercial cloud and private endpoints, and methods that DISA is exploring to singularly command and control service orchestration, delivery, and visibility within a converged information core.

David Stern is Network Evolution Architect at DISA, which is the network service provider for the U.S. Department of Defense. Dave is leading efforts to deploy software-defined networking at DISA.
