For the cloud to reach its full potential, today’s network architectures must change, and Nuage Networks says software-defined networking (SDN) provides the path to do it. A new video from Nuage Networks explains how SDN helps organizations move from a complex, expensive, and static network to one that is highly programmable and dynamically adjusts to IT demands.

This latest installment of Nuage Networks’ video series on SDN explains how the technology moves organizations beyond the traditional, time-intensive, request-based model of provisioning to harness the power of the cloud.
If the NFV transition from physical to virtual appliances is not done correctly, virtual appliance performance may be worse than their physical counterparts’. A white paper from Ixia looks at how VNF performance testing can help with best practices for a profitable migration.
An IDC brief examines the business value of deploying Cisco’s ACI in Cisco data centers. IDC projects Cisco’s first ACI deployment will save them 41 percent over three years in combined capex savings and ongoing IT staff time savings.
The latest installment of Nuage Networks SDN video series looks at how the cloud has changed the way we use networks today and how SDN can act as the “glue” between the network and the cloud.
While carriers agree on the vision for NFV, many struggle to understand the practical migration steps and measure success. A new eBook from Ixia, “Demystifying NFV in Carrier Networks: A Definitive Guide to Successful Migrations,” helps companies fast-track NFV planning and deployment.
IT feels increasing pressure to make networks more agile, but managing traditional Layer 4-Layer 7 services is anything but. A new video from NEC featuring Jim Metzler and Don Clark shows how businesses are using SDN to optimize network policy and security, giving their networks the agility and security they need.
For any switch to be OpenFlow, it must meet strict ONF requirements. But conformance testing says nothing about real-world performance. A Spirent white paper Spirent explains the importance of OpenFlow performance testing and describes test methodologies companies can use on their own.
All SDN and NFV solutions separate the network’s management from its traffic forwarding — it’s how they do it that makes the difference. A new white paper from Centec reviews different approaches to network virtualization and highlights the advantages of its hybrid switch solution.
IXIA’s Michael Haugh has been involved in SDN since the early days and works closely with the ONF Testing & Interoperability working group. Mike provides a unique perspective, from his years of SDN and OpenFlow testing and participation in numerous plug-fests, on the readiness of SDN for production use.
