Software-defined networking (SDN) is enabling organizations to accelerate application deployment and delivery. Dramatically reducing IT costs through policy enabled workflow automation. SDN technology enables cloud architectures by delivering automated, on demand application delivery and mobility at scale. With SDN it enhances it the benefits of data center virtualization. Increasing resource flexibility and utilization and reducing infrastructure costs and overhead. SDN accomplishes these business objectives by converging the management of network and application services into centralized, extensible orchestration platforms. That can automate the provisioning and configuration of the entire infrastructure. Common centralized IT policies bring together disparate IT groups and workflows. The result is a modern infrastructure. That can deliver new applications and services in minutes, rather than days or weeks required in the past.

Software-defined networking delivers speed and agility when deploying new applications and business services. Flexibility, policy, and programmability are the hallmarks of SDN solutions. With a platform capable of handling the most demanding networking need of today and tomorrow. Ignite business agility with software-defined networking. Today’s enterprise data centers serve a dynamic and unpredictable business environment. Where IT is tasked with maintaining control of strategic assets on premises while delivering cloud capabilities across the enterprise. SDN delivers the cloud architecture that businesses need for greater flexibility and agility, while bringing hyper-efficiency to your data center. Technologies are the foundation of SDN across the range of software and hardware platforms — from leading vendors as well as open source. Whether it’s a move to software-defined compute, storage, or networking, SDN builds agile enterprises ready for the cloud. SDN can drive positive impacts for your business.

SDN — Network Functions Virtualization

Take control of your hybrid workloads. Including running them in containers. And move them across servers, racks, and clouds using standards-based overlay networks and multi-tenanted hybrid gateways. Network Controller allows you to use Network Functions Virtualization to easily deploy virtual machines (VMs) for Software Load Balancing (SLB) to optimize network traffic loads for your tenants. And RAS gateways to provide tenants with the connectivity options they need between Internet, on premise, and cloud resources. You can use network controller to manage a data center firewall on VMs and Microsoft Hyper-V hosts. Microsoft Network Platform uses new features for existing Microsoft technologies. You can use DNS policy to customize your DNS server responses to queries. Use a converged NIC that handles combined Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) and Ethernet traffic, use Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) to create Microsoft Hyper-V virtual switches connected to RDMA NICs.

SDN — Managed Network Security

Dynamically segment your network based on workloads. By using a distributed firewall and network security groups to apply rich policies within, and across, segments. Plus, layer enforcement by routing traffic to virtualized firewall appliances for even greater levels of security. The impact of changing customer demands for capacity, downtime expectations, application performance and user experiences tends to be that IT operators must not be constrained by infrastructure available in a single location. To date this has resulted in several complex scenarios including stretch clusters and Layer-2 extension. What we learned in getting Microsoft Azure public cloud services to where they are now. Where an estimated 100,000 virtual networks are on-boarded every month, is that the simplest scenario is to build an overlay SDN. In this style of networking virtual networks are built on top of, and abstracted from, the physical network so that tenants and workloads are isolated from one another.
