Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a broad topic, but is becoming ever more important. The ability to configure our networking devices using software is blurring the lines of where our application deployments end. It encompasses everything from virtual networking appliances like AWS’ Load Balancers or CoreOS’ Flannel, to networking equipment that supports standards like OpenFlow.
