While traditional switched networks are still prevalent in the Enterprise, the value of SDN in the Cloud and Data Center is well established. In data centers, services move rapidly between physical hosts, and data migrates between storage locations. The network fabric must be reactive to these demands. Furthermore, the sheer number of devices in a data center makes manual control of the network unfeasible. Size, performance, flexibility and agility have driven the evolution of networking in data centers, and have led to a prevailing use of SDN over traditional network architectures.

Reliable implementations of SDN technologies are now an essential requirement for leading data center solutions. As an Open Network Foundation member, Allied Telesis combines open standards technology with a best-of-breed hardware platform, to deliver flexible, scalable and high performance networking solutions.
