Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a new perspective on the design, implementation and management of networks. SDN is designed to merge the network into the age of the cloud. This most recent evolution of the modern network promises to make the network more elastic, agile, and dynamic, yet to keep pace with today’s rapidly changing business demands.
SDN allows network administrators to manage network services through the abstraction of lower level functionality. This is done by splitting the system in two. One part makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane). The other part forwards traffic to the selected destination (the data plane).
The promise of SDN can be fulfilled if the right tools and technology are in place. Infradata delivers a set of SDN products and solutions that are just that.
