A Software-defined networking market transition enables unprecedented value from our networks. Read more about the SDN market and an open, evolutionary approach that is required.
In 2014, we can expect more production deployments of SDN, and that's going to force us to consider some key questions. Should the northbound interface be standardized, and how? And do we really know what we want out of network abstractions?
As Cisco's Insieme launch showed, the network should be application-aware, and applications should be network-aware. The question is where to put the demarcation lines. Done right, it can produce agility, automation, and better delivery of...
Watch out for VM sprawl under SDN, because that's what could happen if too many resources want the same things. There's also a danger of watching compute requests spiral out of control, given that CPU cycles are now 'free.'
The NSX announcement for software-defined networking (SDN) sure got a lot of attention, but is the product all that necessary?
Guest Blog by Markus Nispel: SDN - Who Is Programming? And What Is The Level Of Abstraction We Need? Can we decide about the specifics of SDN architecture?
Will OpenDaylight be THE northbound API - or will be there many? Lets see how the SDN market evolves but it will take a few years before an answer is known.
Data Plane SDN flow-based systems make very sophisticated software decisions which allow for new, advanced and agile services that are associated with SDN.
The notion that SDN is just for data center or for service providers is not true. SDN provides a lot of value to the Enterprise and this article shares why.
