Peer Hasselmeyer (NEC Lab) will be giving the presentation “Software-Defined Networking for the Data Center” at the GridKa School, 7-11 September 2015,
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a paradigm shift in the networking domain. It has recently become a hot topic and it is expected to change the way we think about networks and how we architect them. In this talk we will look at what SDN is, how it can be realized, and what the impact on networking, mainly in the data center, is. The SDN architecture will be explained, the abstractions used by OpenFlow will be introduced, and some use cases as well as some SDN implementations will be described.
