Best Practices for Managing Performance with Network Orchestration
Let’s start by saying congratulations to SDN! Network virtualization technologies are finally starting to proliferate the datacenter, delivering on the abstraction and flexibility at a network layer that hypervisors did at a compute layer nearly 15 years ago. And with the development of new technologies comes the inevitable complexity and need for orchestration tools to manage the network.
So the question becomes as you look to shift towards SDN what are you doing from a network orchestration standpoint to simplify workload deployments, increase agility, and maintain application performance?
The Rise of SDN, Simply Complex
SDN has been great. It drastically reduces a lot of the complexities with traditional network management by shifting management functions from hardware to software based controllers. These controllers allow for on the fly configuration and management, and simplify tasks like deploying new application architectures.
Underneath the management simplicity…
