Data Center Trends in 2019: Software-Defined Networks (SDN)

One of the trendiest topics for the last few years has been software-defined networking, or SDN for short. The technology allows for infrastructure to become “transformed” into a software-based system, which Software Defined Networkis an integral part of the software defined data center (SDDC) of the future. In 2019, the technology has seen a significant uptick largely due to the value it has for data center networks such as the following:

  • SDN allows networks to dynamically reconfigure, to reduce bandwidth bottlenecks by directing the flow of network traffic, allowing the network to work effectively with a multitude of applications
  • SDN can be incredibly cost-effective by allowing for a simplified network design due to the capability for the controllers to provide instructions, eliminating the need for multiple devices
  • SDN provides a high level of flexibility, allowing the speedy deployment of new applications and services
