Celebrating 40 years of Ethernet Innovation – Session 2 – Panel 2b

Panel 2b. Architecture and the environment it creates
Ethernet was the answer to a vision – a vision of a distributed computing architecture with a PC on every desk linked to shared printers and servers. Now taken for granted, this was revolutionary in the age of batch processing and mainframes, and it transformed the way we do business. Was this revolution inevitable? Could it have taken a different path? To what extent does the cloud reverse that trend? Our panel explores the long-term implications of these fundamental choices. What lies ahead?

Panellists: Radia Perlman, Executive Vice President Platform Systems Division, Intel; Gordon Bell, Principal Researcher, Microsoft; Glenn Ricart, Founder & CTO, US Ignite
