Network Virtualization vs. SDN

Virtualized Greek

Scott Lowe was a guest on the latest episode of VMware Community Podcast and was discussing Network Virtualization. He has deep experience with both Networking and Server Virtualization. He was a guest on the podcast to discuss Network Virtualization.

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.

The virtual first data center is here

Virtualized Greek

We may be a long way away from the datacenter vision that VMware calls software defined data center (SDDC) or what Microsoft calls the cloud based data center, but we have arrived at the virtual first data center. The underlying infrastructure may be services or hardware. Most organizations have adopted a virtual first strategy. The drivers for a virtual first network are a bit different than a physical first network. Cloud Computing Network Virtualization

Network Virtualization as I understand it

Virtualized Greek

You can easily manage OS images, clone virtual machines, create entire test environments with almost a push of a button.
