The Role of Networking Engineer in Multi-Cloud World

In this new brave world of multi-cloud this and that … what is a network engineer to do in terms of network architecture/design:

  • architect/design network topology
  • architect/design service chains (of course this is mainly driven by app folks the software architects, but usually they just show up with “make it work … we’ll just write code” and surely everyone runs around the enterprise looking for the network guy … “dude … put together the plumbing for us … we have to make it work” :)

Maybe it’s nothing, but it’s been bugging me for a while now… there’s more and more cloud work.
