When The Cloud And SDN Collide

Software-defined networking promises to simplify and improve enterprise networks. But implementing any networking technology is difficult with the advent of hybrid cloud, in which the network perimeter and the boundaries of enterprise IT functions flex between private and public. In this video, Nathan Pearce, Principal Technologist at F5 Networks, examines how SDN can best be employed to provide benefits across the hybrid cloud environment.

Re: Standards
Brian,

Good points!

One often wonders why so many Solution Vendors specialize in making life incredibly difficult for end-users by not permitting Interoperability of the kind and degree you are mentioning here.

Its the sad reality of IT Systems Management that even today we don't get enough Interoperability for major Systems.

This is the only way to really compare Apples to Apples in most Enterprises.

Standards
Standards are difficult to reach but, once they are agreed upon it helps to cut costs a lot. Accounting is similar, if every economic region has a different accounting standard then, cross communication of accounting data can create a lot of translation cost. In the same way, if in-house SDN is of a different standard than, public cloud SDN -- the benefits of hybrid cloud might be lost in the translation costs.

Respondents are on a roll: 53% brought their private clouds from concept to production in less than one year, and 60% ­extend their clouds across multiple datacenters. But expertise is scarce, with 51% saying acquiring skilled employees is a roadblock.
