SDN and NFV Simplified: A Visual Guide to Understanding Software Defined Networks and Network Function VirtualizationIt would be an absolute delight for anyone, for IT folks in general and Network guys in specific to read Jim Doherty's SDN/NFV simplified book. It is written in a lucid style, easy to understand and covers the topic exhaustively. The core topic of SDN/NFV is brought to the attention of the reader in gradual steps starting with the fundamentals of server virtualization. Conceptually, how SDN is akin to server virtualization (while drawing parallels between the controller and the Hypervisor) and Wireless LAN controllers (with Light weight access points) is fascinating. Jim covers the topic both from a vendor offerings and open source perspective, painting the canvas explaining VMWare NSX, Cisco ACI, ODL, Openflow, Open stack etc. How Software programmability can simplify optimized traffic flows, policy driven automation is brilliantly explained. This indeed is an exciting and evolving technology and the details of the various vendor implementations and standards is enlightening. This book definitely needs to be read by every CIO/CTO to gain a quick overview (both from a Business and technology perspective) and gain insights to this topic that cant just be ignored.
