Software-Defined Networking is an emerging technology that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and flexible.Learn More
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an approach to networking that allows administrators to manage network services through abstraction of lower-level functionality. This is done by decoupling the control plane from the data plane. This drastically simplifies networking architectures and allows companies to an unparalleled degree of control and adaptability, while reducing a company’s total cost of ownership. As we’ve seen with software defined storage, we at CCS believe that SDN will be a disruptive technology that will set a new paradigm in the networking industry.
Cisco recognizes that industry shifts are redefining IT at all levels. On-premise IT consumption models are shifting to cloud-based services. IT as a service (IaaS) is supplanted by applications as a service. Separate development and operations are moving toward integrated development and operations (DevOps). Box-centric management models are migrating to application-centric management.
Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) in the data center is a holistic architecture with centralized automation and policy-driven application profiles. ACI delivers software flexibility with the scalability of hardware performance.
Nuage Networks fully virtualizes and automates any data center network infrastructure, transforming it into a reflexive environment that instantaneously establishes the network services required to deliver cloud applications across thousands of tenants in a policy-driven manner.
The Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) lays the foundation for an open and dynamically controlled data center network fabric to accelerate application programmability, facilitate unconstrained mobility, and maximize compute efficiency for cloud service providers, webscale operators & leading tech enterprises across the globe. Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Service (VNS) solution aligns the network service to the needs of the enterprise and provides the flexibility to deliver an unconstrained network experience that matches the dynamic cloud environment.
VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). By bringing the operational model of a virtual machine to your data center network, you can transform the economics of network and security operations. NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VMs with a policy-driven approach.
NSX network virtualization is a transformative architecture from VMware that enables the full potential of a Software-Defined Data Center, making it possible to create and run entire networks in parallel on top of existing network hardware. This results in faster deployment of workloads, as well as greater agility in the face of increasingly dynamic data centers.
