“There’s an inside joke in the software-defined networking industry that “SDN” stands for ‘still done nothing,’” writes Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research in a recent article for Network World, Software-defined networking touches every industry segment.
“People say that,” he continues, “because despite the tremendous hype around SDN, many customers remain confused about what it is, how to deploy it and what the benefits are.”
To provide would-be SDN adoptees with a better understanding of this technology, Force 3’s Next Generation Networking practice partnered with GovLoop and VMware on a special project. In Software-Defined Networking: Keeping Pace with Network Complexity in the Public Sector, we discuss everything from the benefits of SDN to the best practices for adopting it.
“Software-defined networking is essentially an improved blueprint,” says Jon Kim, director of Next Generation Networking at Force 3. “Rather than going back to the traditional network design, you need an improved blueprint describing how you build a next-generation network to support today’s rapidly evolving IT needs.”
