There have been a lot of innovations in the virtualization domain which has benefited compute and storage. However those benefits are constrained due to limitations in the traditional network model. It is becoming increasingly difficult task to manage infrastructure which needs rapid network provisioning and also can be a time consuming.
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
2017 looks to be a promising year for software-defined networking (SDN) enthusiasts. According to recent research by IDC, the worldwide SDN market is expected to grow to $12.5 billion by 2020. This includes physical network infrastructure, control software, SDN applications, and last but not least professional services. Software-defined networking gained
