Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
I completely agree you Susan, but at the same time i cannot ignore that effectiveness of system only works when engineer on site know's about the product. Lets wait for SDN to join DC, i am sure we will gain speed when things come our head. LOL

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
Oh yes, definitely. But I'm not sure there will be "best practices" available to teach others yet. i think a lot of the administration will be experimentation and troubleshooting to see what works in thse first couple years. What do you think?

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
Thank You Susan, But don't you think this will impact the practical implementation/mindset of operator and SDN.

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
Ah, Virsingh, that's an excellent point. I know this question was not directed at me, but I will jump in and note that you are right that the education will by definition need to be very theoretical at this point. I don't think we will be seeing very hands-on SDNcertification classes, for instances. People will still be learning more about what SDN is, and which type of solution might be a better fit for their envrionment.

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
I am really happy you included SDN education in the blog, but as we suspect 2014 as the implementation year how soon and easy do you think SDN education can flourish ?? In my term education is not about reading white-papers or notes but more about interrelating your network with SDN.

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
LOL, Marilyn, I think part of the reason we Still Don't Know is that every vendor has their own interpretation, and some vendors who don't do anything close to SDN claim they do it, too. The beauty of market hype!

Re: ... and SDN means.. what, exactly?
The acronym isn't that hard to remember, what with all the hype is certainly is very visible  on tech sites and events. But I still think we are along way from awareness so the most accurate definition, in my view, is Still Don't Know

If anyone does know, please raise our hand and tell us.

SDN stands for Software Defined Networking. Thanks for the input -- we will be more careful to spell out our acronyms in the future!

I too am not sure what SDN stands for.
