Network virtualization (NV) and software-defined networking (SDN) have changed the way networking and data center infrastructure are managed and deployed, enabling services and applications to be installed as software on standardized hardware platforms. This has resulted in an explosion of virtual networking tools for both the data center and wide area networks, a topic we will be covering in our forthcoming 2016 SDN Controller and Network Virtualization report.
To guide our research and garner feedback from readers, we have opened up our 2016 SDN Controller and NV Report survey. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think and have heard about SDN and NV technology in the marketplace. If you complete our survey, which only takes a few minutes, you can receive an exclusive preview of the results before they are released to the public and the opportunity to enter an online raffle for a chance to win one of two $200 Amazon gift cards.
The results of the survey will contribute to the market analysis in the 2016 SDN Controller and NV report. It will be interesting to see what the users in the community have to say about the penetration of SDN and NV technologies into the marketplace.
Some of the things we hope to learn from the survey:
- What are the most important use cases for SDN technology?
- Which vendors have leading mindshare in the SDN and NV marketplace?
- What are the core capabilities of SDN controllers and NV software?
- Insights into deployments and what’s driving them.
Our Market Landscape reports have been gaining huge traction, with some getting more than 30,000 downloads to date. The SDN Controller and NV report is one of our most popular reports in the space, covering leading technologies and dozens of companies.
So, if you have a few extra minutes, take the survey to get a free preview of the results and a chance to win some Amazon credit.
