Software-defined networking is presented as a solution to managing complex data centers. The roles of controllers and network applications are discussed.
- [Teacher] I want to take a little break…from the world of virtualization to introduce…the concepts of software-defined networking.…When assembling a data center, there is a lot…of equipment needed to create the network fabric.…And in a data center, there's going to be…firewalls for every separate entry point,…there are going to be routers creating necessary…divisions between segments of our networks,…and bridges and switches, possibly lots of switches,…connecting all of the rest of the equipment.…And on top of that, there are all the servers.…
And we've talked about some of the features…needed on our switches to support the…high-performance technologies of our first three chapters.…So we know that these are highly intelligent switches.…These devices all need to make intelligent decisions…on what to do with different types of traffic.…They're going to need to decide whether…to drop or quarantine or to forward…each stream of packets, and to where.…If they decide to forward the packet,…they're often going to need to specify the entire path.…
