According to Lionel Lamy, associate vice president, EMEA Enterprise Systems and Network Life-Cycle Services, IDC:
“Network virtualization and SDN enable a new way of looking at networking. The potential impact of the technology necessitates additional and in-depth professional services because SDN enables communications infrastructure to become software-programmable and brings the principles of cloud computing to the network.”
We have brought together several resources – articles, links, video and reports to provide a degree of insight into the world of Software Defined Networking and other SD(x) technologies such as Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC) and Software Defined Storage (SDS).
Last October Logicalis put together a team to explore the immediate and future impact of Software Defined Networking. But to the non-technical CXO, what is an SDN? Gary Thomas explains.
Chris Gabriel explains why the SDN (Software Defined Networking) naysayers are wrong, and why they’d be mad to ignore a technology model that will change everything.
SDN, and software defined other things like Data Centre, will be the biggest transformation in how we design, deploy, operate and provision IT services in the next 20 years
Eugene Wolf, CEO of Logicalis SMC, looks at potential barriers to both SDN adoption and to the realisation of its true transformative value, and concludes that one stands head and shoulders above the rest – skills.
