In this special DemoFriday, Brocade shows how its SDN Controller -- the Brocade Vyatta Controller -- can use SDN applications. This enables users to enjoy several use cases, and put SDN policies into real action. Below, you can find the full presentation video, as well as other helpful resources.
Watch Video: Brocade SDN applications using Brocade SDN Controller based on OpenDaylight Demo Synopsis:
SDN Controllers play a major role in software-defined networking (SDN). Acting as the “brains” of an SDN environment, they are essential to the management of the entire network. As SDN continues to be adopted and expanded upon, a viable SDN Controller is necessary for successful networking, as well as integrating new applications into businesses.
With the Brocade SDN Controller, users enjoy an open platform for scalable management of end-to-end services. As a tested and commercially supported open source framework, the Brocade Vyatta Controller is a low-risk opportunity to integrate SDN into one’s network, empowering users to effortlessly transition workloads from existing equipment to an SDN environment.
In this exclusive DemoFriday, Brocade shows us the many applications available for use through the Brocade SDN Controller, as well as some early use cases of the OpenDaylight-based SDN Controller, including:
- Bandwidth calendaring
- Context-aware policy enforcement
- Prioritization of unified communication traffic
- Security for problems like DDoS attacks
- Advanced networking programmability and control from heterogenous network functions virtualization (NFV) environments
Watch as Brocade highlights the simplicity of putting policies into real action with the Vyatta Controller. The presentation highlights how the Brocade Traffic Management Application utilizes traffic control actions based on measure flows as policies set by the user, and how the Path Explorer Application gives users the ability to “drag and drop” flows by using an intuitive GUI for immediate and dynamic control of network traffic.
