It is no secret that software defined networking (SDN) is a big deal. Driven by cloud, as well as demanding applications, this technology is evolving as the future of datacentres. The opportunity that
SDN brings is clear, but the transformation involved for businesses should not be underestimated.
Put simply, SDN is an approach that allows network services to be managed by abstracting higher level functionality, so that traffic can be managed centrally rather than at a device level. This is achieved by separating the control plane that determines where traffic is directed from the underlying data plane that forwards traffic to the desired destination. Multiple, diverse devices effectively become commoditised building blocks that can be employed by the SDN.
Juniper Networks Software-Defined Secure Network gives you end-to-end network visibility that secures the entire network, physical and virtual. It leverages cloud economics to find and stop threats faster.
Clearly a comprehensive strategy, as well as some serious know-how, is needed. This on-demand webinar from Juniper is one of the most useful resources we have seen to help network specialists to prepare to get the most from new networking technologies.
