SDN Focus: Interview with John Kenevey, Facebook

Facebook has credited its focus on designing and developing its own data centre infrastructure – including playing a pioneering role in terms of Open Compute – with saving the social network US$1.2bn in IT costs in the past three to four years. Facebook program manager John Kenevey spoke to Siliconrepublic.com about the social network’s work with the Open Network Foundation (ONF) to encourage software defined network (SDN) standards, as well as Facebook’s focus on the Open Compute Project to bring open-source thinking to hardware creation. Kenevey will be speaking in Dublin on Monday at the Open Tech Ireland gathering on SDN technology.
