Software Defined Networking in the Next Release of Windows Server: Network Controller Fundamentals
Play Software Defined Networking in the Next Release of Windows Server: Network Controller Fundamentals
Software Defined Networking (SDN) does to networking what virtualization did for computing, and will be central to the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC). SDN allows for greater flexibility in a data center, by creating a virtual network plane overlaid on the physical networking fabric. The next release of Windows Server introduces the role of the Network Controller - network intelligence is logically centralized in this entity, allowing it manage and program the entire network. This session provides an in-depth look at the Network Controller (NC) and its role in the control plane of a virtual network – by pushing policies and driving each network entity to its requisite goal state. Attendees also learn how the latest innovations bring together on-premises approaches and cloud-based technologies to deliver hybrid solutions that span multiple products.
