Press Release

New Digital Platform Provides Critical Resources, Guidance and Support for Network and Infrastructure Management Professionals

WILMINGTON, DE― April 28, 2015 ―SevOne, the only infrastructure performance monitoring (IPM) solution engineered for Speed at Scale, today officially launched, The Network Project, a video channel and community for network, operations and IT professionals. The site features free access to a growing library of video interviews, talks and presentations with thought leaders and technologists in the infrastructure management space.

“When it comes to the future of infrastructure technology, there’s only one thing that’s certain—rapid, unrelenting change. That’s why we created The Network Project,” said Vess Bakalov, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at SevOne. “It’s a living community built upon real advice from real experts in one place, to foster education, discussion and innovation.”

The Network Project offers viewers the opportunity to learn firsthand how their peers are tackling current-day technology challenges in the Enterprise and Service Provider markets. Visitors can also share their perspective through discussion and social sharing tools on everything from career considerations to how major technology trends like Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are impacting the industry now and into the future.

"Communities such as The Network Project are important to advancing thought and understanding in our field,” said Jim Metzler, CEO of Ashton-Metzler Associates. “It’s an opportunity to gather real-world experience from many of the leading IT professionals in the world and share their unique perspective with an audience thirsty for knowledge.”

Along with Metzler’s perspective on how performance monitoring must scale to meet Big Data, current featured interviews include:

  • Jennifer Lin, Senior Director of Product Management at Juniper Networks, exploring the role of performance monitoring in SDN
  • Kenneth Dilbeck, Head of the Collaboration Program at TM Forum, revealing how networking careers will evolve as a consequence of emerging technologies
  • Dan Pitt, Executive Director of the Open Networking Foundation, providing tips on seeing through the SDN vendor hype and the critical questions network operators need to ask
  • Vess Bakalov, connecting the value of the on-demand infrastructure for companies looking to monetize the IoT

“Our customers want to hear from their peers on the front lines, and the visionaries that are redefining the industry at a time when their networks and infrastructures have never been more critical to their business,” said Bakalov. “We look forward to sharing, listening and learning as The Network Project continues to evolve with new voices, ideas and technologies that will stimulate collaboration, inspire problem solving, and shape the future of our industry.”
