SDN is Dead! Long live SDN!
How controller-less SDN is propelling agile open networking and delivering on the broken promises of old-school SDN
Software Defined Networking (SDN) promised to deliver a new world of network agility and control. Yet here we are nearly a decade later, and what progress has been made? Much of the failure of SDN to achieve its early promise is due to proprietary controllers promoting vendor lock-in. SDN really should be thought of as Software Driven Networking, where you can drive network control, logic and automation via software in a much simpler, cost effective way.
Read this paper to learn about controller-less SDN that takes a different approach working:
- Without a centralized controller
- Free of proprietary technology
- With networking as code
