What does OpenFlow/SDN do differently than existing network technologies?
kreiley 1 year ago
I've heard some buzz about OpenFlow/SDN being innovative and I know that there is a lot of support, but to be honest I'm not really sure what is all that new about it. I know the architecture is different, but HOW is it different, and what is the benefit of that difference? I guess the short way of asking it is, what does OpenFlow/SDN do differently from what we have now?
