Disruptive new technologies always mean plenty of startups. There are plenty that the industry knows about, and sometimes many more that are in 'stealth mode.' For SDN, many new startups are emerging, and Jeff Vance has published a nice spread of some of the more promising startups. Here are nine:
- Affirmed Networks
- Big Switch Networks
- Jeda Networks
You can go to Jeff's article on CIO to get short descriptions on each. Several startups, such as "Nicira, Vyatta, Cariden and Contrail have already been acquired by VMware, Brocade, Cisco and Juniper, respectively," said Vance.
