SDN Deployment Trends

Deciding on a cloud-based implementation brings still more platform-related choices. From there, many organizations are turning to OpenStack, an open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. This is not coincidental. According to EnterpriseNetworkingPlanet and Senior Editor, Sean Michael Kerner, the cloud’s abstraction of physical networking assets makes it an obvious fit for SDN. Further, within OpenStack the Neutron SDN project is the most active effort there is, and it has the support of every major networking vendor.

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.
