SDN Deployment Trends

Deciding to use an SDN architecture brings with it further choices, starting with which platform to use. Organizations must choose a cloud-based deployment, virtual switches, bare metal or a combination of the three. The survey found that the cloud is the most popular of the three platforms, with more than one-quarter of respondents deploying or planning to deploy SDN in the cloud. More than half, however, are opting for a combination of cloud, virtual switches and bare metal.

Moving past its infancy, software-defined networking (SDN) is becoming a significant player in the management of IT infrastructure and network design. While implementation can be a challenge, SDN is attractive to many businesses due to its potential for cost savings, improved network performance, increased productivity and improved security.

QuinStreet Enterprise surveyed IT decision makers to better understand how enterprises view these networking technologies, as well as their SDN deployment plans. In this slideshow, we've highlighted findings from the survey. To learn more, download the full report and watch a video roundtable discussing SDN in the enterprise.
