Provides hybrid networking.

What is most valuable?

Viptela (router) SDN-based services:

  • Hybrid networking.
  • Combination of low-cost appliances and virtualization.

How has it helped my organization?

While it is not implemented in our organisation, I have been looking in SDN for quite a while and had some concern about hype and buzz words surrounding development of the subject.

With Viptela (Cisco is buying this start up), it is the golden average on what I would like to see in SDN implementation.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have not used it yet.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability (especially running in virtualized environment) is an issue SDN vendors do not talk about until customer learns the hard way. It has to be tested.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is a strong selling part of virtualized solutions. I hope it is the case for Viptela; something to test.

What other advice do I have?

This is definitely a product worthy of being evaluated and tested.

The attractive part is a combination of low-cost appliances and virtualization.
