Will the SDN conversation be driven “top down” through a services focus, or will it be driven “bottom up” through solving short-term operational problems? Time will tell.
The momentum around the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Northbound API keeps growing. When is it going to be standardized? Who is in charge of standardizing it? Which implementation is likely to be the most adopted?
In working with network virtualization, many IT environments have seen the direct benefits of applying this type of technology.
The possibilities of SDN, in particular OpenFlow, are exciting. But to see the possible become reality will depend on how quickly a capable and usable Northbound API is developed.
There are opportunities and hurdles the security community will have to face when it comes to SDN environments. How an organization goes about addressing these challenges will determine how successful they will be.
When someone asks the question “What business needs are being addressed by SDN?”, how should we answer? Here are some thoughts to that question.
Eliot Rosen, Product Line Director at Broadcom, discussed some of the key trends in data centers and their implications for new processor architectures at Linley Tech Processor Conference.
As the number of virtual machines per server is grows from 20 to a hundred in 2016, there will be challenges with network virtualization overlays
You’ve done it! You convinced management to adopt SDN and you’re buying switches from Pica8, IBM, and Dell, controllers from Big Switch, as well as applications within the Big Switch Ecosystem.
A realistic look at SDN by network management veteran, John Strassner. SDN has been touted as a panacea for all networking ills, but what can SDN really do?
The pieces exist to build massively scalable, multi-tenant, high performance layer-2 only SDN (software-defined) networks. Yet there are none. Why not?
OpenFlow - What Every Switch Product Manager Should Know - what does network virtualization, software-defined networking &SDN mean to you.
VMware will support overlay networks to enable workloads to run over diverse network infrastructure. It changes nothing in SDN debate.
Exploring the concept called the "OpenFlow Microcontroller" where an OpenFlow controller runs in its own VM, isolated from embedded software.
We interview SDN experts to learn the top open source projects the SDN community should be tracking and what makes them so interesting.
