Software-defined networking

Fitting it in to your business

Software Defined Networking is revolutionizing networks and data centers.

Virtualization and cloud, mobility and BYOD, the Internet of Things, social interaction, business dealings, the capture and analysis of user data — these killer ideas and applications are placing an incredible demand on provisioning processes and polices, causing a bottleneck from the relatively slow speed with which we create and change network policy and severely limiting the ability to go to market quickly or remain agile.

You need a network with the agility and manageability to support and deliver the enterprise application workloads that are critical to the success of your business today and tomorrow.

ACI an introduction to software defined networking

You need Software Defined Networking

Software Defined Networking enables you to accelerate application deployment and reduce your IT costs. It enables cloud architectures by delivering automated, on-demand application delivery and mobility at scale. Software Defined Networking enhances virtualization, increases resource utilization, and reduces infrastructure costs and overhead.

Software Defined Networking is about speed and agility with a scale and complexity that can only be achieved by giving up direct human control.

A new approach

Software Defined Networking represents a shift in approach to networking and network operations.

  • Network policy is decoupled from implementation-specific syntax.
  • Networks become a consumable resource rather than a line of demarcation.
  • The network model is proactive rather than reactive.

You need GDT to get you there

You realize the maximum positive impact of Software Defined Networking only after your people, processes, and technologies are ready and certain pre-requisite technology tactics and a few objectives have been met. GDT has developed an assessment plan to help you get there.  GDT assesses your executives and their desire to align technology with their business goals. We discuss role boundaries, the communications between teams, and the value of organized processes.

  • Orchestration, or automated and templated network configuration
  • Improved communication between technology disciplines
  • Provisioning of new network resources in as few steps as possible

GDT helps you do the hard work of exploring and vetting new technologies, and allows you and your team to focus on the achievement of your immediate goals.
