Getting Started with Network Function Virtualization (NFV)

First question that comes to mind is whether SDN and NFV are same or different or related technologies? SDN and NFV are independent technologies. SDN creates a separate management plane which sits a floor above the traditional control plane so as to get wider view of the network and orchestrate using network protocols like OpenFlow. So, with the SDN approach

An Introduction to Docker Technology

Containers are tools that run multiple applications on a single host. Docker is one such open source tool which runs on Linux. Docker technology is very similar to Virtualization, except the fact that containers are more efficient and cost effective while virtualizing the operating system because they run multiple workloads on a single host. Docker
