It is exceedingly difficult for individuals to match their capability to perform a job or function exactly with their experience in that role. For the upwardly mobile, being promoted into a new challenging role means heading into something with the capability but minus the experience. And most of us know people who have occupied roles …

Introduction

The network is the last bastion of the monolithic computing era. Originally conceived and designed for a completely different set of problems, today's network remains an obstacle to achieving the full promise of modern day application, computing, and storage advances in the data center.
