“Software Defined Networking (SDN) offers a possible solution allowing complex networking tasks to be defined in terms of policies and deployed in minutes instead of days”. IIS’s Cloud and Virtualization Practice Manager writes in the latest issue of The CIO Review:

The adoption of Software Defined Networking (SDN) has been growing rapidly. As a CIO, what does this mean for me and why should I care. The truth is that while server virtualization has driven the IT industry towards staggering expansion and made cloud computing possible, networking has been fairly stagnant without much change over the past two decades. While applications can be deployed in matter of minutes, configuring the network remains a challenge as routing, load balancing and security concerns slow down the process. SDN offers a possible solution allowing complex networking tasks to be defined in terms of policies and deployed in minutes instead of days.
