Speaker Profile:
As co-founder of Nicira, Martin Casado is a respected networking research leader in infrastructure technology. He spearheaded the current software-defined networking movement. His innovation led to the company’s $1.26 billion acquisition by VMware in 2012. Casado first began thinking about network virtualization in 2002, when he was working as a contractor for a United States intelligence agency. He used network virtualization to ensure fewer points of entry and maximum security by uncoupling the network from the underlying physical networking hardware. This level of abstraction creates virtual networks that deliver the same features as physical networks, but with the operational flexibility of virtualization. Martin received 2012 Grace Murray Hopper Award by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for his work in creating the software-defined networking (SDN) movement. Martin received his MS and Phd in Computer Science from Stanford University. His Phd formed the basis of OpenFlow standard and Nicira and the SDN movement.
