SDxCentral Releases The 2018 Next-Gen Data Center Networking Report

Even traditional networking companies are developing software management platforms and brite/white-box networking platforms to respond to the need for scale and software agility.

SDxCentral.com announces the availability of a new report: The 2018 Next-Gen Data Center Networking Report.

Cloud computing, software-defined networking (SDN), and network virtualization have radically changed the way data centers are networked. Continued adoption of public and private clouds, coupled with business requirements for handling massive amounts of media data and big data analytics are driving new network architectures and approaches.

As cloud providers compete, they've driven down operational and capital expense through the use of white box solutions combined with open-source and open API software-based networking solution. Even traditional networking companies are developing software management platforms and brite/white-box networking platforms to respond to the need for scale and software agility.

The 2018 edition of our report examines new advances in data center networking, covering the role of SDN and Network Virtualization, intent-based networking, programmability and P4, white box and open hardware developments, advancements in networking at the large cloud providers such as FaceBook, Microsoft and Google, and new advances in network fabrics including PCIe switching. Other developments in key open-source organizations such as Open Compute Project (OCP) and Linux Foundation are also examined for their impact and contribution to data center networking.

The report includes results from a survey conducted by SDxCentral’s research team with select members of the SDxCentral community. This report is complimentary and available for download at SDxCentral.com.
