Cisco’s SDN Paradox Is Only the Beginning

Greg Ness is looking at the rcent SDB movement and asks himself:

For Cisco and the other hardware-centric networking players, this new boundless data center era promises to be as disruptive as virtualization was to the server industry and the personal computer was to the mainframe industry.  The question is: will the boundless data center help today’s hardware-enabled leaders to maintain their leadership or will it set the stage for yet another software-enabled revolution?

I think we are on the beginning of an era where the traditional network vendors are losing market to the agile software solutions, especially in the datacenter market.
