IBM SDN for Virtual Environment - OpenFlow Edition
Data centers are gravitating toward a new environment; one that is software defined. A Software Defined Environment (SDE) optimizes the entire computing infrastructure—compute, storage and network resources—so it can adapt to the type of work required.

Even with recent advances, the physical network remains a bottleneck lacking the flexibility needed to accelerate business success.
IBM SDN for Virtual Environments, OpenFlow Edition is part of a family designed to create a unified network architecture which enables cloud and big data analytics.
