Agenda
• SDN Introduction and Overview
• Benefits and Drivers for SDN
• SDN Use Cases
• SDN Industry Organizations
• Challenges and Objections to SDN, Industry
Outlook
• GTRI’s Solution Methodology
• GTRI’s SDN Solutions and Services
Software’s Influence on IT Infrastructure
• “The Times They are a-Changin’”, Bob Dylan
• Movement toward virtualization, multi-tenancy,
cloud services, the third platform, and influenced
by consumption economics
• “Why Software Is Eating The World”, by Marc
Andreessen, (WSJ, Aug 20, 2011)
• DevOps isn’t just a popular digital-age
portmanteau, its a movement of IT de-siloization
that is also coming to data-networking
Benefits of Virtualization and Software’s
Influence
• Servers have transformed from bare-metal to
virtualized OSs, and now applications are moving to
software containers (LXC, Docker, etc.).
• Storage systems now have dynamic features like
automatic tiering, thin-provisioning, de-duplication,
backups and replication.
• Networking is beginning to be influenced by software
Today’s Network Limitations
• Networking hasn’t changed substantially in 15 years
• Most network devices are manually configured one-at-a-time
• QoS and other policies are configured manually on each
individual device, not tied to current application traffic mix
or security policies
• IP routing protocols do not take traffic load into consideration
• Network Admins have only managed to moved from Telnet
to SSH
# telnet 10.2.6.9 # ssh –l cisco 10.2.6.9

Software Defined Networking (SDN) Technology Brief

  • 1. WWW.GTRI.COM Software Defined Networking (SDN) Technology Brief Scott Hogg, Chief Technology Officer, GTRI CCIE #5133, CISSP #4610 © 2016 Global Technology Resources, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 2. Agenda • SDN Introduction and Overview • Benefits and Drivers for SDN • SDN Use Cases • SDN Industry Organizations • Challenges and Objections to SDN, Industry Outlook • GTRI’s Solution Methodology • GTRI’s SDN Solutions and Services
  • 3. Software’s Influence on IT Infrastructure • “The Times They are a-Changin’”, Bob Dylan • Movement toward virtualization, multi-tenancy, cloud services, the third platform, and influenced by consumption economics • “Why Software Is Eating The World”, by Marc Andreessen, (WSJ, Aug 20, 2011) • DevOps isn’t just a popular digital-age portmanteau, its a movement of IT de-siloization that is also coming to data-networking
  • 4. Benefits of Virtualization and Software’s Influence • Servers have transformed from bare-metal to virtualized OSs, and now applications are moving to software containers (LXC, Docker, etc.). • Storage systems now have dynamic features like automatic tiering, thin-provisioning, de-duplication, backups and replication. • Networking is beginning to be influenced by software
  • 5. Today’s Network Limitations • Networking hasn’t changed substantially in 15 years • Most network devices are manually configured one-at-a-time • QoS and other policies are configured manually on each individual device, not tied to current application traffic mix or security policies • IP routing protocols do not take traffic load into consideration • Network Admins have only managed to moved from Telnet to SSH # telnet 10.2.6.9 # ssh –l cisco 10.2.6.9
  • 7. What is SDN? • Software-Defined Networking (SDN) means different things to different people. Each person thinks about SDN from their own perspective.
  • 8. What is SDN? • Software-Defined Networking is an approach to networking that separates the control plane from the forwarding plane to support virtualization. • SDN is a new paradigm for network virtualization.

  • 11. SDN Benefits • Greater span of control and network analytics and response. • Better intelligence with a global view of the network rather than each network element looking at the network from its own viewpoint. • Improved application experience and empower the network owner/operator. • Rapid deployment of applications using networking that supports the application’s specific needs. • Simplified and automated IT administration. • Opportunity to open up the network to a diverse set of vendors and disaggregation.
  • 15. SDN Industry Organizations • Open Networking Foundation (ONF) - OpenFlow, OFConfig, Table Type Patterns (TTP) • OpenStack • OpenDaylight • IETF - OVSDB, I2RS • ETSI - Network Functions Virtualization (NfV)
  • 16. Objections and Challenges • SDN Controller redundancy, security o What happens if the controller fails? • Central controller needs to be notified of any network failure o How does this happen when the network is down? o Latency for TCP/SSL control signaling – detect sub-ms failures • Speed of flow setup o Controllers will need to support many flows/second • Vendor interoperability between controllers o Do different vendors controllers interoperate? o Current vendors have “Proprietary Openness”
  • 17. Objections and Challenges (Cont.) • SDN Internet extensibility o How does the SDN controller interface to the Internet? • Human factors o Humans configure routers/switches manually and humans will configure the controller manually o SDN transcends IT group silos (networking, security, servers, …) • SDN is an unproven technology o Industry in its infancy, many small vendors, some vendors are not shipping orderable products, lack of standards for controller interface o Current IT staff has 25% of their time for new projects • ROI/TCO analysis for enterprise deployments o SDN deployments must preserve current IT investments

  • 19. SDN Operational Model • Network and security administrators are sometimes threatened by network programmability and software-defined networking. • The truth is, your networking skills and knowledge is transferable to a software-driven/defined world. • Operational issues can arise in the new SDDC environment when groups don’t cooperate well. • Silos of IT operations don’t lend themselves to NFV and SDN and virtual security policy enforcement. • The traditional physical demarcations and lines of responsibility blur with SDN and NFV. • Cross-function and interdisciplinary DevOps teams are needed to make SDN and NFV systems viable.
  • 20. Elusive SDN Deployments • Have you seen an SDN Deployment? • Universities, campus slicing • Hyperscale technology businesses and cloud service providers who have dynamic networking needs and high virtual machine density • Organizations requiring network taps for data analysis • Some enterprise data-center deployments exist 20
  • 21. SDN Industry Outlook • More SDN deployments will emerge as solutions mature. • We will see consolidation of vendors in this space (major/larger vendors will absorb the best-of-breed). • Larger vendors will include native SDN APIs to preserve organization’s investment in networking products. • Standards will emerge and the market will drive a winning technology.
  • 22. GTRI SDN Solutions • GTRI’s Virtualization and Advanced Networking Professional Services (PS) practice has expertise with SDN vendor solutions. • GTRI has top-tier partner status with the most relevant long-term vendors in the IT virtualization market. • GTRI offers an SDN readiness assessment service to assess your infrastructure, your applications, and the benefits to your business gained from using SDN. • GTRI has a SDN test bed where we can learn and teach SDN solutions and help validate solutions prior to deployment. • GTRI is performing SDN deployments and we will freely share the latest vendor and industry information with you.
  • 24. FREE SDN Technology Review • We are offering a FREE 3-hour (~1/2 day) SDN technology review for your company • Bring your networking, security, DevOps, and other technology teams together • Review SDN capabilities within your existing networked infrastructure • Discuss SDN architecture and design options • Review network automation and network programmability potential
