July 23rd, 2013

As SDN takes hold, engineers will design networks that are subservient to the application and that provide "app-centric visibility, management, automation, provisioning and orchestration," he said. In this new scenario, software interacts with and automatically modifies the network layer, said Ben Rockwood, director of cloud operations at San Francisco-based cloud service and infrastructure provider Joyent. "VM A wants to connect with network B, and the software enables that to happen transparently and dynamically," he explained.
