Promise of Software Defined Networks
The rest of IT has moved on to leveraging virtualization extensively, but networking has been lagging in the ability to deliver a responsive and agile environment. Yanick Pouffary, HP Distinguished Technologist and Chief Technologist Technology Services, Networking and Mobility, explains that until recently the number of nodes that had to be managed manually set the pace of the ability to react to changing business needs.
Setting up connections, just in time, with the right properties for the application is essential to optimal use of resources. Storage, server and network must work together to be responsive, so the separation of control and data is working to manage the fabric and ability to set up flows based on business rules. HP offers a series of transformation workshops to establish a technical and business plan to help enterprises optimize their return on networking infrastructure resources.
