Why is SDN important – Techtalk 43



 

Continuing the theme of the software defined data center, I tackle the network.  Even if we accept the argument that networks scale perfectly fine without abstraction the question of agility has to be answered.  The software defined network is all about agility.  It doesn’t matter if it’s Cisco’s hardware based approach or VMware’s virtualized approach.  The end result is the same.  The ability to manage the network based on application level policies adds tremendous value to the business.
