SDN Resources

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).
