      SDN solves a lot of network problems, but security isn't one of them

      As the digital enterprise struggles to find the best security solutions to defend their ever-expanding networks, many are looking to next generation tools that offer interoperability capabilities.

      Software defined networking (SDN) holds lots of promises. By consolidating the control planes of multiple devices into a single controller, that controller becomes the omnipotent decision maker over the entire network.

      Why Cisco, VMware SDN products don't always play nice together

      Cisco's software-defined networking approach is capable of administering policies across switching hardware and data center applications that run on VMware's virtualization platform. But toss VMware's SDN security option into the mix, and Cisco's technology becomes less useful.

      Software-defined networking touches every industry segment

      There’s an inside joke in the software-defined networking industry that “SDN” stands for “still done nothing.” People say that because despite the tremendous hype around SDN, many customers remain confused about what it is, how to deploy it and what the benefits are. This is particularly true in the data center where the stakes are high and any kind of mistake can cost an organization millions of dollars.

      It seems like we can buy almost anything as a service today. Servers, storage, applications and collaboration can all be purchased using an “as a service” model. Recently Sprint introduced both Workplace and Mobility as a service to add to the growing portfolio of consumption-based products. In our consumer lives the Amazon button turns consumer goods into a service. The one piece of technology that’s still difficult to buy as a service is the network.

      Software-Defined WAN: Reality or Just More Hype?

      For all the hype it has seen in the past few years, SDN deployments are still few and far between. Networking professionals who I know even joke that SDN actually stands for "still done nothing."

      SDN’s original focus was on the data center, butover the past two years, SDNs have pivoted and become focused on the enterprise WAN. The SD-WAN brings the benefits of SDNs to the wide-area network and has a chance of narrowing the gap between reality and hype.

      Embedding SDN in the Enterprise

      Most enterprises are wondering how to reap the benefits of SDN and how to embed it in their enterprise IT strategies. For starters, the challenge for most IT infrastructure organizations is that SDN is part of a broader automation push in the data center and beyond. That push crosses domains and must be linked to business problems.

      What is needed is simplicity in the physical enterprise networking stack, and effective virtualization, security, and effective and simple automation to streamline programmability as well as providing effective integration with (virtual) compute, networking, and storage for minimal complexity.
