Exploring Software-Defined Networking at Brocade White Paper
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging concept that proposes to disaggregate the traditional vertically integrated networking stack in order to improve network flexibility and manageability. SDN will enable “mass customization” of network operations to better support differentiated cloud services.
Software-Defined Networking comprises a group of technologies that open the data, control, and management planes of the network to participate more easily in broader orchestration frameworks through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). These APIs also facilitate the development of a rich new set of network applications and services from a wider range of sources, including independent developers, Value-Added Resellers (VARs), and user organizations themselves.
