Get Ready for “Network Apps”

April 23, 2012 — by Avi Chesla4

I just got back from the 2nd Open Networking Summit (ONS) that took place in Santa Clara. This event was three times bigger than the one held on October last year. Networking innovation was once again the focus of the discussions and demonstrations and it was interesting to see a few examples of production network environments that have fully adopted the SDN (Software Defined Networking) approach and implemented OpenFlow. For example, Google showed that most of its production network is OpenFlow enabled – there’s no better “Proof of Concept” than that.
