Observing the software-defined network in the wild

Software defined networks may not be as commonplace as their virtualized computing and storage brethren, but they’re out there in there in the field. On Tuesday at GigaOM’s Structure Europe conference. Big Switch CEO Guido Appenzeller, Schuberg Philis Managing Director Pim Berger and Nicira CEO Steve Mullaney discussed how SDNs are being implemented today from Schuberg’s virtualization of banking networks to NTT’s use of SDNs to hop its desktop-as-a-service platform from one data center to the next in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
