Hi folks! So what’s SDN? It stands for Software Defined Networking!
What does that mean to you? Basically SDN is abstracting the complexties of the network from the hardware and putting it in software. Theoretically this is supposed to simplify things and make things easier for the network administrator.
Unfortunately a lot of people are throwing around the SDN term, but don’t really have a strategy. It kind of reminds me of the word “cloud” and how it’s been thrown around in IT over the past few years.
Before you buy into SDN, make sure you verify and test what works and what doesn’t!
