Scale-out SDN architecture provides an elegant deployment solution enabling massive scalability. The flexibility of the solution accommodates a wide range of network applications and services, including routing, service chaining, EPC, and load balancing, to name a few. This same flexibility allows different network elements to scale independently based on a wide variety of characteristics (number of users, forwarding or controller capacity, bandwidth, etc). In this presentation NoviFlow and our guests, Forrester Research and AARNet, explore the forces at work on networks today and how Scale-Out SDN architecture makes it possible for carriers and data centres to respond to these forces. We also show how NoviFlow has applied the presented principles to build the NoviFlow’s Scale-Out BGP Router, and we explain how this architecture enables many applications to scale-out to extremely large configuration in simple, modular increments. As an example of a live deployment of a scale out SDN application, AARNet presents Australia Wide-Area SDN Testbed. This webinar was recorded on February 18th, 2016.
