2013 Guide to Network Virtualization & SDN

  • Part 3: The Network Virtualization and SDN Ecosystem
  • Jim Metzler, Ashton Metzler & Associates
  • Distinguished Research Fellow and Co-Founder
  • Webtorials Analyst Division

The primary goal of the 2013 Guide to Network Virtualization & SDN (The Guide) is to eliminate the hype and confusion that currently surrounds both software defined networking (SDN) and Network Virtualization (NV).  

The Guide will be published both in its entirety and in a serial fashion.  This is the third of the serial publications.  The first publication focused on NV.  The second focused on SDN and presented a top down approach to SDN that identified the problems and opportunities that SDN may be able to address.  This publication identifies the major categories of organizations that are part of the NV and SDN ecosystem and briefly discusses the value proposition of each of the categories. It also identifies representative members of each category that either currently provide the indicated functionality or can be expected to do so in the near term.

The fourth and final publication of The Guide will focus on planning for SDN and NV.
