Software Defined Networking

What is SDN all about??? Below outlines my journey to find out.

  1. Central control of traffic from end to end, regardless of actual network (MPLS, 4G, DLS)
  2. GUI driven vController
  3. Configure devices from a central server

What is cloud:

  1. Private – just a DC off site
  2. Public – DC accessible via internet
  3. Hybrid – mix


Get the SP do the hard work, and just run your info as needed:

  1. Infrastructure as a service
  2. Platform
  3. Software

So far, after researching SDN, all I have found is a load of ideas and concepts, nothing special. But I can see that automation is a big thing, just for setting up a machine… using a scripting language like perl.
