MetadataShow full item record
The industry is facing a digital revolution that is disrupting traditional business models; companies need to develop strategies to adopt emergent technologies that help to improve their value chain. Cloud integration is part of ConocoPhillips' digital strategy, as it provides access to many emergent technologies in an agile and cost-effective manner. This master thesis aims to design an SDN data center network solution that facilitates the migration of ConocoPhillips' computing assets to public clouds. The research methods consist of a comprehensive literature review of the digital revolution, cloud computing, and data center network technologies, followed by fieldwork based on qualitative action research. The findings from this project underline the need for an SDN data center network that provides high capacity, scalability, programmability, automation, multisite support, and cloud integration.
