On Network Virtualization and SDN

Scott Lowe

Is there a difference between network virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)? So, in a similar fashion to my post on network overlays vs. network virtualization , I thought I’d weigh in with some thoughts. My purpose, as John put it when he invited me, was to “gently introduce” the community to the idea of network virtualization, which is where I now spend most of my time since joining VMware in early February. Or virtualized firewalls?

Vendor-Side DevOps Practices Can Still Deliver Better Value While Client-Side Government Processes Catch Up

CTOvision

A common scenario in the private sector — delivering a beta version in the cloud and letting the customer validate it and provide feedback — is more challenging on government projects where testing and validation is done onsite. One of the challenges facing application providers is deploying into several government-controlled Cloud environments at once — examples include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and Red Hat OpenShift.
