Price: TBA

Course details

This course will attempt to clarify the new and paradigm changing concepts involved in software-defined networking. It will cover the basics of software-defined networking from a technology standpoint, the product architecture of IBM SDN VE, explain its major components, their benefits while showing how to implement the solution. It will also cover configurations that an administrator must be aware of, advanced features that are supported by the product, like integration with OpenStack while showing multiple use cases.

IBM Software-defined Networking for Virtual Environments (IBM SDN VE) creates a more responsive network infrastructure by creating virtual networks for dynamic workloads. This virtual network is isolated from the physical network much like a virtual machine is isolated from its host server hardware.

IBM Flex System offers intelligent, integrated, and flexible network architecture that can fit with your existing or future environment. These high performance Ethernet offerings coupled with on demand scalability offer an easy way to scale as IT requirements grow. IBM Flex System Fabric is integrated, optimized, and automated.

Therefore, IBM Flex System is a good platform for implementing IBM SDN VE.
