Software Defined Networking Basics for the Server Team

According to Gartner, "Software-defined networks are emerging networking architectures that separate the control plane from the data plane in networking equipment.” As a server admin, you could care less about control and data planes as long as the packets get from "point A" to "point B" and you don’t have to mess with your IP address. In this session, we’ll cover the problems solved by software-defined networks, and demo the basic concepts in Cisco ACI that are relevant for the IT professional.
