VMware’s networking CTO on OpenFlow

These people interviewed Allwyn Sequeira, CTO and vice president of cloud, networking and security for VMware about OpenFlow. Honestly, the technical content is pretty weak, but my favorite part is all the snark.

If you have 200 Stanford Ph.D.s and you own your own fiber and can build your own boxes in your backyard and you own your own traffic and have proprietary applications, then [Openflow] is for you [now].

Ouch!

Then, when asked if he thought of Nicira and Big Switch as possible competitors, he had this to say:

The real question is: Are Nicira and Big Switch a feature in VMware?

Beautiful. This guy is great.
