Navigating Your Software-Defined Networking Strategy



Colleagues at work

By now, most people are aware of what software-defined networking (SDN) is, and how this solution can help drive better business results. Enterprises often deploy SDN to help meet agility, efficiency and security business goals.

But many organizations that want to take advantage of the benefits of SDN as a part of their digital transformation are unsure where to start. Some teams make the mistake of selecting a solution at the beginning of their SDN journey. The most successful SDN implementations consider business drivers first and choose a solution based on those goals.

A trusted SDN implementation business partner can help you focus on those drivers to help find a solution and deployment strategy that meets your unique business goals. Known for revolutionizing the way networks are conceptualized, deployed, and managed, SDN can meet your networking needs that are being poorly addressed by existing networks.

As digital transformation efforts continue, enterprise applications are becoming more complex, dynamic, distributed and resource-intensive. In addition to becoming cloud-native, modern applications are containerized for speed and agility when developing new services. But deploying containers in a scalable, manageable, and secure way that provides an underlying network infrastructure is a challenge.

With the continued evolution of SDN technology, it’s possible to provide seamless connectivity and security services for all types of end-points. From virtual machines to containers and bare metal machines, you can use use a single network overlay, abstraction and unified policy framework, whether your technology resides in a data center, remote office, branch or in the cloud.
