Getting Up to Speed on SDN

· Cloud Zone

Download this eBook outlining the critical components of success for SaaS companies - and the new rules you need to play by.  Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.

If you’re curious about SDN and would like to come up to speed quickly on the concepts, this half-hour video presentation by Scott Shenker can help:


The video's description puts it this way:

“Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has all the signs of a fad: massive hype in the trade rags, an increasing number of academic papers, and widespread confusion about what SDN really means (Isn't it just OpenFlow? Isn't it all about centralization? Isn't it all just hot air?). This talk will try to dispel some of this confusion by discussing how SDN arises from a few natural abstractions for the network control plane. Lecture given on June 6, 2012 at Technion.”

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
